Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini LTE I9195 Review
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini LTE i9195 is a more compact variant of the flagship Galaxy S4. It features a 4.3-inch display screen (which is 0.7 inches smaller than the Galaxy S4). This smartphone's slimline design makes it comfortable to hold firmly in one hand, and fits into most pockets making it easily portable.
Although lightweight (3.77ounces), this smartphone boasts a solid plastic construction. One of the advantages of this smartphone's 4.3 inch screen size is that it is easy to use the touch-sensitive buttons and reach all four corners of the display. The screen resolution is 540x960, which equates to 256 pixels per inch. As with the Galaxy S4 and Note II, the Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone uses Super AMOLED technology for its display. This typically provides deep saturated colours that are easily visible indoors. However, for outdoors viewing the display has improved clarity when set to full brightness. The Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone is installed with the Jelly Bean Android 4.2.2 operating system and Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. The settings screen is divided into four clear sections, while the “home” screen includes a variety of widgets. These can be easily removed if they aren't required.
Although small in size, this smartphone features a powerful 1.7 GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The fast CPU together with 1.5GB of RAM enables the Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone to perform well with various applications and can easily handle multitasking. This smartphone has 8GB of internal storage, which can be used for things like extra apps, documents, photos, music and videos. This may be adequate storage for some users; otherwise, there is a microSD slot that can hold a memory card to provide up to 64GB of additional storage. It's also important to note that out of the 8GB storage, 5GB is available to the user, while the remainder 3GB is used up by pre-installed software, such as the operating system. An attractive feature of this smartphone is its 8MP camera, which delivers sharp images that are well balanced and exposed when set to its highest resolution of 4:3. The camera, situated on the top right-hand corner of the Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone, includes an LED flash and auto focus. There are a number of shooting modes to choose from, such as night, auto, and continuous shot. In addition, there is a full range of optional camera controls, including things like exposure, balance and filters.
This smartphone plays music and videos smoothly and delivers clear sound through a speakerphone, earpiece and microphone. For those that enjoy playing games, this smartphone won't disappoint. It is easily capable of smoothly running 3D games, which are vivid on the wide 4.3 inch display. It also allows for games to be played on a social level through Group Play. In addition, this feature enables multiple Galaxy S4 Mini smartphones to be wirelessly connected for document and photo sharing. Other desirable features that the Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone has are Bluetooth 4.0, an IR Blaster, Wi-Fi, NFC and radio capabilities. The Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone also has an infrared transmitter, which enables devices around the home to be controlled if required. With its 1,900mAh (7.2Wh) removable power pack, the Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone offers around one full day of intensive use before it will need to be recharged and two days of standard use. The Galaxy S4 Mini smartphone is an attractive option for those that are looking for a solid middle of the range device, or perhaps prefer a more compact phone to the 5inch display models. It is currently available in a choice of black mist and white frost.
