Samsung Galaxy S4 mini coming soon to Verizon?
A picture showing a Verizon branded Samsung Galaxy S4 mini suggests that Big Red customers will soon have a shot at purchasing the bite-sized version of the Korean OEM's flagship Android model. The SGH-i435 has not yet been announced by either Samsung or Verizon, so pricing and availability are both unknown at this point.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is equipped with a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display with 540 x 960 (qHD) resolution That combination works out to a pixel density of 256ppi. A dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU is under the hood while GPU chores are handled by the Adreno 305. 1.5GB of RAM is on board and the 8GB of native storage can be boosted by the 64GB capacity microSD slot. The 8MP camera on back captures 1080 x 1920 video at 30fps. There is a 1.9MP snapper on front for selfies and video chat, and a 1900mAh cell powers the whole shebang. Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed.

If you're a Verizon customer and the 5 inch screen of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is too large and unwieldy for you, the good news is that it appears that a smaller version of the phone could be on the way.

DROID Mini is strictly better, right?

The Droid Mini has a better camera, screen, processor and design. So its a better value.

Processor, yes. Design is a matter of opinion. But, how do you possibly know the Droid Mini has a better camera?

So what? You can't make any final judgments on the camera until it's released.

Removable battery in S4 Mini versus built-in battery in the Moto Droid Mini? As well as a much cleaner Android interface with Samsung? You can keep your Droid Mini.

I don't know of too many people who would consider Touchwiz "cleaner" than Motorola's light skin, but I still prefer the former. Touchwiz offers more options than anything else period. I like choice.

I have an S3 and I hate TouchWiz, so that's clearly opinion. Pixel density is way better on the Droid Mini. Removable battery and expandable memory are most of what sets Samsung apart these days.

I don't get why manufacturers always have to skimp on the damn specs for smaller phones. At least make that resolution 720p so I at least have a nice screen to look at to compensate for the rest of the mediocre specs.
