The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini
was anything but a secret. We totally knew it was coming thanks to the rumor mill spoiling the surprise with its leaks and all. Oh well. Now that the smartphone is official
, are you curious to know how small it really is? Can it really be considered small at all? Well, wonder no more and just take a look below.
It turns out that the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, weighing 107 grams, is considerably lighter and smaller than the 133-gram Samsung Galaxy S4
flagship. In fact, the new handset is pretty much as small and pocket-friendly as last year's Samsung Galaxy S III mini
, which is is quite a feat since the former packs a 4.3-inch screen and a 1900mAh battery versus the latter with its 4-inch display and 1500mAh cell.
As we continue comparing the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini to other smartphones, we see that it is only a bit bigger and thicker than the iPhone 5
– a smartphone that many consider to be of a just-right size. Again, note that despite the minor size difference between these two smartphones, the screen on the latest generation Apple iPhone is still a third of an inch smaller in diagonal than what the S4 mini has to offer. So overall, the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is shaping up like a decent phone. Its proportions are average by today's standards, and its maker needs to be commended for packing so much in a package of this size. Is anybody looking forward to getting one?
