Galaxy S4 mini screen

T he Samsung Galaxy S4 mini smartphone’s screen is a 4.3” Super AMOLED and has a resolution of 960 x 540 with a pixel density of 256ppi. This is a small disadvantage, considering it is not an HD screen. In contrast, we must also mention that it is not a hindrance, since the screen is quite clear. It is even easy to read when the sun shines on the screen of the Galaxy S4 mini. The fingerprints on the screen are minimal and the touch sensitivity is very good. Actually, this smartphone is not as ‘mini’ as the name suggests, the Galaxy S4 mini’s screen is still much larger than that of the Apple iPhone 5.

The Galaxy S4 mini’s speed

The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor with a clock speed of 1.7GHz and 1.5GB RAM memory. The S4 mini has a lesser processor than the S4, but this Dual-core processor is fast enough for this device. From simple apps to heavy applications and games, nothing seems to be too much for the Galaxy S4 mini. Glitches hardly ever occur, and this Samsung phone rarely freezes. The Galaxy S4 processor is fast enough and offers a nice user experience without delay.

Stand-by time of the Galaxy S4 mini

The Samsung Galaxy S4 mini comes with a 1900mAh battery, which is not bad at all for a smartphone in this price range. It is difficult to say anything about the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini’s standby time, considering that this is very dependent on the settings. I can say that with normal to intensive use, the battery lasts for at least one day. In most cases, two days should not be a problem, but if you use the internet a lot and watch a lot of videos on your smartphone, the Galaxy S4 mini will need to be charged at the end of each day.
