Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini review: small in size, but not worth the mega price

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is a solid mid-range device, but you can buy similar phones for less -- or better ones for not much more.

Pros
  • Solid camera with great video recording
  • Overall performance is decent for a mid-range phone
  • Easy and comfortable to hold
Cons
  • Display could be better
  • Priced too high for intended audience
  • Limited internal storage
