If you own a Galaxy S4 Mini on AT&T then there’s a new software update that you have to install today. The carrier has released a VoLTE update for this smartphone which will allow this smartphone to move beyond 3G voice calls and jump on the VoLTE network of the nation’s second largest mobile carrier. This is just one of the few devices for which AT&T has released this update […]
Last year Samsung followed up the release of the Galaxy S4 with a watered down version of its flagship aptly called the Galaxy S4 mini. It offers mid-range specifications with the looks that people have come to expect from Samsung’s flagships at a relatively lower price. AT&T is one of the carriers that offers the device in the U.S. and today the carrier has released Android 4.4.2 update for the Galaxy S4 […]
The KitKat update has been rolled out for a handful of devices on different carriers this week and today Verizon joins that list with a couple of Samsung devices. Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S4 mini on Big Red finally receive Android 4.4.2. The latter also received KitKat on Sprint today. The update not only brings everything we have come to expect from KitKat but also some bloatware and Samsung’s Knox 2.0 security suite.
A day after it released an update bringing Wi-Fi calling for the Galaxy S5, Sprint today released the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for two additional Samsung devices on its network. Galaxy S4 mini and Galaxy Mega are the devices that receive the KitKat update from Sprint today. Roll out has already begun over-the-air. The update more or less brings the same features and changes to both devices.
We did take the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini out for a spin earlier this month, and came away rather impressed by certain aspects of the handset, although it will obviously be unable to live up to the full fledged model’s namesake in terms of performance and features. Well, the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is back in the news again today, as it happens to be the very first smartphone from […]
Samsung has had quite the run with its Galaxy S4 as the company has released numerous iterations of the device that range from simply offering a new color for the phone, to new devices, such as the Galaxy S4 Active and Galaxy S4 Mini. We took a look at the Galaxy S4 Active a few months ago, and now we take a look at Galaxy S4 Mini to complete our […]
Samsung has a penchant for releasing multiple variants of its popular smartphones, and the Galaxy S4 certainly falls under that list. Originally released back in early 2013, several variants of the Galaxy S4 have already been released, some globally, while some in specific regions. The Korean juggernaut has now launched a black Galaxy S4 and Galaxy mini in Russia, these variants also tout the faux leather backs that first debuted […]
Special editions as well as variants of smartphones are nothing new at all, and when it comes to the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini La Fleur edition, well, it has been talked about before in October, but right now in December, it has been word made flesh – at least in Germany some point down the road. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini La Fleur edition will arrive in red, and it […]
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is almost a year old now, but given the popularity of the Galaxy S lineup of devices, it is not surprising that Samsung is looking to squeeze as much money out of the lineup as possible. We had recently seen Samsung release a Galaxy S4 Crystal Edition, and if you’re after a Galaxy S4 handset but were holding out for whatever reasons, you might be interested […]
Earlier this year when Samsung released the Galaxy Gear smartwatch only a handful of the company’s devices were able to support it. Since then an update has been rolled out which widens the net, allowing more and more people to hook up their $299 smartwatch with their Samsung devices. Support is only limited to the company’s own devices, so its not like anyone with an Android device from another OEM […]
If you’re planning on picking up a new phone for yourself and you’re a little tight on money, you might be interested to learn that US Cellular has announced the availability of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini on contract for $50, but like we said this is on contract which means that you will be tied to the carrier for the next two years. Alternatively the carrier is also offering […]
Verizon has added three new smartphones to its lineup today. The biggest being, quite literally, the 5.9 inch HTC One Max. The rumors we had heard previously have actually turned out to be true, Big Red really is launching the Galaxy S3 mini and the Galaxy S4 mini. Both smartphones are now available for purchase through Verizon’s retail stores and its website.
If you’re looking for a smartphone which shares some of the guts as the Samsung Galaxy S4, but comes in a smaller package, then perhaps the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini could be the droid that you are looking for. Granted the specs aren’t as amazing compared to later models released by Samsung’s competitors, but if you’re on a budget, the good news is that Sprint will be offering up the […]
Sprint customers are in for a treat this month. The carrier has launched a number of popular Android devices. This time around, it also got the new Nexus smartphone. That’s right, the new Nexus 5 is available from Sprint now. Apart from that particular device, Sprint has also launched the LG G2, Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 as well as the Galaxy S4 Mini. Current and prospective Sprint subscribers have a […]
Just the other day, everyone’s favorite leaker, @evleaks, revealed press renders of what looks to be the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 for Sprint. It looks like the device’s release was much closer than we originally anticipated as Sprint is not only announcing it’ll officially be carrying the Galaxy Mega 6.3, but they’re also announcing details on the Galaxy S4 Mini’s availability.
We recently saw leaked press shots of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini branded with both AT&T and Sprint logos, leading us to believe the long-awaited device was on its way to the U.S. in the very near future. It looks like the assumption was correct as Samsung is announcing today its Galaxy S4 Mini will be available in the U.S. starting next month.
What do you think of special editions when it comes to hardware such as smartphones and tablets? Recently, we did talk about a Hello Kitty edition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 tablet, and this time around, the folks over at Samsung do seem to be interested in working on a La Fleur Edition of its Galaxy S4 Mini. Of course, the La Fleur edition is nothing new at […]
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is arguably one of the best smartphones that’s currently available on the market, which is why the company has introduced the Galaxy S4 Mini for those of us who want all of the fun of the S4, but in an easier to manage body. The Galaxy S4 Mini was first introduced back in late May, and since then, the only news we’ve heard of the device […]
There has been a bit of sniffing around done, where an internal Samsung KNOX document did point to the South Korean manufacturer’s plans to roll out Android 4.4 KitKat to both the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy Mega in due time. This would come about after said devices receive updates to Samsung’s security app. Of course, we all know that there are two different Samsung Galaxy Mega models, with […]
Just last week Samsung announced the dual mode LTE variants of both the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy S4 mini. The latter has stopped by the FCC to get its radio approved, a customary process before the device can be sold to customers. It remains to be seen in which particular markets the dual mode LTE variants are launched. No information is available as yet regarding the pricing and availability […]
