My old Samsung part has made the vault and I had to order a new one. Since my contract does not grant a phone, I have to buy it on the free market. The idea was, if I take me a IPhone, or stick with Samsung. Ultimately, I decided because of the price for the S4 Mini and I can not say that I regret it.
Apple is and always will be the "Mercedes" of phones, but also has a "Mercedes" price. The S4 Mini on the other hand can be had for the price of a currently well-preserved IPhone 4S and comparing the S4 always wins. Not for nothing Samsung has 30% market share and Apple 13%
As an alternative to a smartphone with 5 inch (and more) absolutely great. The battery performance is very good for a smartphone in my if you know how to deal with the setting functions. So I do not understand the negative reviews this regard. Time disable some factory-set functions that the phone has, but you do not necessarily need daily.
In addition, see what you look for Apps invites it, because many apps slow down the system or crash it, which I also never happened in this model after a few months. Respect and use the Task Manager helps. The display shows crisp images and videos. Voice quality is also good, camera is more than adequate. Lies well in the hand and no, I put a flat smartphone also not in his pockets.
For this, probably not a smartphone on time is good enough processed to rely on integrity. The wireless reception is stable. Mobile reception is also good, even in the subway tunnel, is often at the site and the provider. Since the mobile phone manufacturer and can not help;-) From me a strong buy recommendation for anyone looking for a handy smartphone.
