Honestly mate, you'd be better staying clear of the galaxy mini series. They aren't proper galaxy phones.

Have a comparison of the specs of the S4 and S4 mini..

My brother stupidly bought an S3 mini because he didn't really want a phone as big as the S3. He thought he was getting a small S3. He told me the other day that 'this thing is a POS'. I told him that mini series phones are not proper galaxy S's, but he'd obviously already learned it himself by then..

Good to know. My S2 T-989 is close to meeting its maker as well. I've been happy with it but am ready for a new one since I've had it for almost a couple years now.
Thinking of a new Nexus 5 but we'll see.

Having decided it's time to move away from my S2 I've just ordered a Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. It's virtually the exact size of the S2 but decent specs - Snapdragon 800, 2G RAM, 4G/LTE.

It's the only 'mini' phone that seems to have the same specs as the big phone (ignoring the screen size, obviously).

That's the way they should be. The galaxy s mini's are pretty misleading. Lots of people who don't follow mobile technology buy them because they think that the screen size is the only difference.

Nice to see that Sony Z compact are actually proper Z phones. I'm sure you'll be happy with it. I'd happily use an experia z series too.

Yeah true, but the big versions are always better=p so it's always safer going for the normal version, rather than the smaller version.

Another problem with the smaller version = hardly anyone has it compared to its normal phone = so if there's a bug on a ROM, that means that you're stuck=p as barely many people have it. It's also not as supported as the normal device. Take S4 Mini for an example.
People barely have it compared to an S4, so it hasn't achieved nowhere near that attention
