DISPLAY Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410)
Display Type OLED display
Display Technology Super AMOLED
Screen Size (Display Size) 4.3" Worse than 63 % of phones rated.
Screen Resolution (Display Resolution) 960 x 540 pixels Better than 51 % of phones rated.
Colour Depth 16.7 million colours Better than 98 % of phones rated.

The screen size reaches 4.3" inches. Phones with smaller displays are easier to use with one hand. The experience is less pleasant compared to phones with large displays. However, if you're buying a phone for basic use and don't want, for example, a good gaming experience or a large screen for watching movies, this size should be good enough for you. Owing to OLED technology, the display offers a true representation of colours, especially black. The resulting contrast is significantly higher and colours appear more vivid. OLED technology is now part of most smartphones, while LCD displays are becoming a thing of the past in mobile phones. OLED displays also have lower power consumption compared to LCD technology.

Display Resolution of Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410) is 960 x 540 pixels. A higher display resolution is a prerequisite for a sharper image. The standard for mid-range phones today is a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 px. Cheaper phones, which usually have a smaller diagonal, have an HD resolution of 1280 × 720 px. Smaller resolutions can only be found in older models. Best phones, on the other hand, have a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 px.

PROCESSOR Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410)
Processor Type (CPU) Qualcomm Snapdragon 410
Clock Speed 1.2 GHz Worse than 67 % of phones rated.
Processor Core Qty Quad-core Worse than 57 % of phones rated.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410) is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 410. The number of processor cores is 4. It is a number of cores that plays an important role in evaluating the performance of phone as it is responsible for computing operations. Smartphones already commonly have a core count of around 4 to 8. Multi-core processors can perform better and reduce the processing time of a request to a minimum, which is reflected in the responsiveness of the phone, e.g. in the speed of opening applications. The processor frequency indicates how many instructions phone can process in 1 second. The higher the frequency, the better the performance. Standard processor frequency range today is between 1.8 GHz and 2.8 GHz. Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410) reaches the frequency of 1.2 GHz.

MEMORY Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410)
RAM 1.5 GB Worse than 59 % of phones rated.
Internal Memory Size (Storage Capacity) 8 GB Worse than 72 % of phones rated.
User Memory 5 GB
Supported Flash Memory Cards (Expandable Memory) microSDHC, microSDXC - up to 64 GB

The phone´s internal memory capacity is 8 GB. The size of the internal storage determines e.g., how many photos, songs, movies, or applications you can store on your phone. This memory capacity is ideal for those who have a few basic apps and a few dozen photos on their phone. If you don't expect to use your phone to play games or need to store high-resolution photos, this size should be sufficient. There is almost no probability you're likely to see this low capacity on new smartphones. The standard memory today is around 64 and 128 GB. The best phones have internal memory of 256 GB or more. Luckily, most smartphone manufacturers nowadays offer models with different memory sizes to suit every user.

An additional option to increase the storage capacity of this model is to insert a memory card.

RAM memory of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410) is 1.5 GB. Most powerful phones currently have an operating memory of 12 GB or more, which is especially useful for demanding users such as gaming enthusiasts. Normally, phones nowadays have 6 to 8 GB of RAM, which means that the phone can easily handle normal operation and more demanding applications. Operating memory of less than 4 GB is found in lower-end phones or older models, and they are suitable for low-end users who don't use demanding applications and have the phone more for basic use.

The rear camera of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410) has only one lens. Single lens is more typical for older phones or lower-end phones with lower quality cameras. The rear cameras of modern phones nowadays are usually equipped with two, three and sometimes even five rear camera lenses. The resolution of the main lens is 8 Megapixel. Higher resolution does not necessarily mean super high quality photos. Furthermore, it depends on the pixel size but also on other important factors.

Digital zoom in this case offers zooming up to 4x. Of course, the higher the lens value, the more distant object can be zoomed in. Nonetheless, the disadvantage of digital zoom is that the quality and sharpness of photo deteriorates when using it. Some users will also appreciate facial recognition feature, which allows camera to recognise the face of person in frame and automatically focus on it.

Battery Technology Lithium Ion

The battery size of Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410) is 1900 mAh. Nevertheless, battery capacity is not the only factor that affects the phone's battery life. For example - the size of the display, the performance of the processor, the use of data functions and, of course, the intensity of use of phone in general all have a significant impact on battery life. Standard for most smartphones today is a battery capacity of around 4500 to 5000 mAH. Phones with this battery size usually guarantee a phone life of at least 1 day. Older or cheaper smartphone models can then reach battery capacities typically around 2500 mAH and below. With this capacity, you may find that if you use your phone heavily, you may need to recharge your phone during the day.

Standby time is 300 hours and it expresses the maximum time your phone can last on a single charge when you are not actively using it. Talk time, or we can say battery life when making calls, then indicates amount of time your phone will last from a full charge if you are constantly on a call. Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410) is provided with a talk time about 720 minutes.
