Now, when the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, smaller version of S4 Smartphone, is going to see the light of the day, rumors and controversies surrounding the handset seems to be giving way to confirmation. The phone has been announced and it is expected to be released in the third quarter of 2013. But what the Samsung fears about is that the users would compare the two models â S4 and S4 Mini.

Letâs do a quick comparison of the two similar looking phones

Display

Comparison would start with the screen because it is the visible feature of the phone. As the name suggests, people would expect the screen size to be a little lower than the S4. The Mini version incorporates 4.3 inches of Super AMOLED screen, while the Galaxy S4 sports a 5 inches screen of same quality. Here you see that Mini is just 9cms smaller than its predecessor but the resolution of the Mini could raise your eyebrows. It is 540 x 960 pixels, while GS4 displays images at 1080 x 1920 by keeping the quality of pictures almost same. The child version of Galaxy S4 packs 256ppi pixel density, while it itself shows a larger 441 pixels density.



Conclusion of Display


Screen size of Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is just perfect but resolution has been considerably cut. Those who are already using S4 wonât like the 256 pixels per inch resolution. But if you are buying your first Galaxy handset then you would certainly get impressed with the screen. Samsung S4 Mini is made to target mid-range users and it is supposed that screen size and resolution doesnât matter most for the mid-segment phone users.

Performance

It is where Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini reveals its real strength. None of the mid-range smartphones could give the performance as S4 Mini could. Its unmatched performance is due to a dual-core 1.7GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. The 3G version of S4 Mini even features 1.5GB of RAM but it is little slower than the processor of S4 that is 1.9GHz quad-core processor with full 2 GB of RAM. Still S4Mini is a good option in middle segment.


Conclusion


Being the big brother of Mini, the S4 is expected to get better hardware. But, if you take S4 Mini is in no way inferior to its predecessor. Both the phones use Android 4.2 Jelly Been OS and also processors of both the devices are Krait based.

Camera

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is no match for 13MP camera of S4 but the Mini is still good if not better at 8MP camera with autofocus, geo-tagging and other features. Video camera could make excellent pictures at 1080@30fps. But there is one similarity between both the phones. They have good front facing cameras. S4 has got 2MP sensor, while Mini has 1.9MP camera.


Conclusion


S4 is better equipped as it has 13MP camera hence there canât be any comparison between S4 and its mini version. Users could still take great pictures and make amazing videos with S4 Mini 8MP camera.
Final Verdict

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is a mini version of the best selling Galaxy device S4 hence donât expect much from the Mini. But you could expect the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini to be the best in its class that is mid-range Smartphone market.
