The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini provides a more compact alternative to the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4, which has been incredibly popular since launch. While it lacks some of the performance it still has the same intuitive ease-of-use characterised by the Galaxy range. It benefits from the inclusion of the smart services S Health, S Travel and WatchOn, so it can be your fitness, travel and media companion whilst being easier to carry in a pocket due to being more compact and lighter.
The design of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini isn’t just about being compact and light weight. Samsung has provided a smooth finish to the edges making it comfortable to hold in your hand. There is the added benefit of being able to use the Mini one-handed for those moments when it is necessary. All modern smartphones require a high quality screen and the Mini is no exception. Despite having a compact design it still benefits from a 4.3 inch qhd sAMOLED. This provides enhanced accurate colours with more definition for a more immersive experience.
While it doesn’t have quite the performance of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the Mini still provides an impressive experience. The 1.7GHz dual-core processor, in collaboration with a massive 1.5GB of RAM, means you can play and use the latest games and apps..The user will enjoy a responsive interaction and easy movement through menus, apps and whilst web browsing.
A stunning 8 megapixel main rear camera provides clear and crisp accurate colours for your photos,so you can capture your special moments. But what do you do with them next? Story Album is a great feature which automatically collates photos and displays them in a smart format - arranging them based on timeline, geo-tagging information or user created events to create an album. If you have ever wanted to add another dimension to your photos Sound & Shot provides with you the ability to store sounds within photos. Panorama Shot allows you to take a full 360 degree view image of everything around you. Video calling is catered for by a high resolution 1.9 megapixel front facing camera.
Samsung has set the Galaxy range apart from the crowd by including an incredible amount of features on their devices. They know sharing and connectivity is at the heart of modern interaction and the S4 Mini includes Samsung Group Play. Group Play uses Wi-Fi direct to allow for easy and convenient music sharing, gaming and chat (using Samsung ChatON) within a local group of compatible devices without the need for a shared Internet or network connection.
International travelling is made easier with S Travel. This app gives you an intelligent tour guide which fits within your pocket. You can receive travel recommendations and tourist guides for your next trip. This includes geographic information, local attractions, popular restaurants, and points of interest. While S Translator makes it easier to communicate,with its instant translation of text and voice in emails, SMS and ChatON.
The WatchON feature utilises the IR blaster as a remote control for your television, cable box and other compatible home entertainment technology. Samsung Link (formerly AllShare) makes sharing content between Samsung devices on your home network easier than ever.
S Health debuted on the Galaxy S4 and it is also available on the Mini as an additional app. available from the Samsung Apps section of the device.

*Since September 2013, Samsung have implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only have access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.
For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.
Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.
Without activation you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.
