Verizon adds two more smartphones in addition to the HTC One Max
We've already passed along the joyous news that today, Verizon has started offering the HTC One max. But there are two other handsets that have been added to Verizon's online roster on Thursday. The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and the Samsung Galaxy S III mini are now both adorned with the Verizon logo. The Samsung Galaxy S III mini is priced at $49.99 with a signed two-year pact ($10.56 monthly with Verizon Edge, $249.99 off-contract) and the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini will cost you $99.99 with a signed two-year contract ($16.81 monthly with Verizon Edge, $399.99 without the contract).

The Galaxy S III mini offers a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen with resolution of  480 x 800 and is powered with a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. The Galaxy S4 mini comes equipped with a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED screen with resolution of 540 x 960, and under the hood is a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage.

Both models are powered by Android 4.2.2 and are the yang to the HTC One max's yin.

Don't worry, Verizon will try to rip you off on the price of your phone no matter what other models are priced at.

Whatever Verizon. You are late to the party getting the SIII mini. Where's the Nexus 5???? Why not the Nexus 5???? I have been loyal to you for 9 years. Sometimes I wish I could just leave you but it's only your service that's holding me back.

Have you not aee n what they did to the Galaxy Nexus? I don't remember Verizon updating it to 4.3 but I could be wrong.

Tell me about it. Everytime I call a Sprint or T mobile customer and the reception goes in and out or even dropped, I'm convinced to stay.

Both of these mini phones should have been released on Verizon prepaid, not on contract. Walmart online has the S3 mini for $299.

Verizon doesn't offer prepaid for 4G/LTE phones.

With the 4.5" 720p, quad core Snapdragon 400, $199 16GB Moto G coming out in 5 weeks the Galaxy S 4 Mini is such a failure in specs.

The Moto G is a failure in price at $199.
