The S4 Mini lives up to its name, offering a scaled-down version of the hardware found on Samsung’s flagship device.
This phone looks like it will stack up pretty closely with the two year old Galaxy S2, since it has a 4.3 inch qHD display and a dual core processor.
With a 1.7GHz clock speed and 1.5GB of RAM, it should be nippier than its predecessor and Samsung is equipping it with 8GB of built-in storage, which should be more than enough for most users.
Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 is onboard the Galaxy S4 Mini and its exterior styling is in keeping with the rest of the range at the moment, which means it is thin and features nicely rounded corners.
With both 4G and NFC onboard, the Galaxy S4 Mini will be at the front of the pack when it comes to connectivity and UK customers can expect to pay around 320 for the phone, if they want to buy it SIM free, while it should be included in several provider packages.
