Sprint announced availability for the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy S4 Mini from Samsung this morning, both going on sale November 8. Each device takes advantage of Sprint Spark, and “enhanced LTE network” that is designed to achieve high data speeds by combining three bands of 4G LTE wireless spectrum available on Sprint’s network.

This morning, outside of Galaxy Gear compatibility news, Samsung announced that their Galaxy S4 Mini will arrive in the U.S. next month (as in November) on Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and US Cellular. US Cellular and AT&T have already confirmed that they will carry the phone, we just haven’t seen pricing yet. We have also seen press images of Verizon’s variant with massive home button branding, but no official word or pricing either. (more…)
Samsung’s poorly reviewed smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear, became slightly more appealing this morning with an announcement that it would soon be compatible with 8 new devices. As you may be aware, the Galaxy Gear currently only works with the Galaxy Note 3, something we knocked it for in our review. How good is a smartwatch if it only works with a single smartphone?

Well, there it is – the Galaxy S4 Mini from Samsung for Verizon. If you couldn’t already tell that it was for Verizon, then I suggest heading to your local eye examiner as soon as possible. As we can clearly see, Verizon has gone ahead and pimped out this little device’s Home button with their gorgeous logo, plus plastered on some logos to the backside, just incase you still forgot who you were paying every month. We haven’t seen the Home button logo’d out like that since the Note 2, and we were really hoping they killed that idea. (more…)
Usually when we see a device pop up on the homepage of various Internet deals sites, we expect to see either old or refurbished devices going for too much money. Today’s deal actually doesn’t seem all that bad, as 1 Sale A Day is asking for just $400 for a brand new (in retail packaging) Galaxy S4 Mini from Samsung. Usually listed in the excess of $500 ballpark, a cool $100+ off isn’t bad at all. (more…)
Yesterday morning, Samsung unveiled a bevy of products at a Premiere event in London, some of which were brand new, others that were previously announced just unseen publicly. We got to see new tablets, phones and even a new mirrorless-Android-powered camera. I wouldn’t blame you if you were unable to list all of them. I was, however, able to play with a few of the new devices and see if Samsung has delivered any innovATIV products. Here are some quick thoughts on the Galaxy NX and the Galaxy S4 Mini.
A Samsung device with the model number SCH-435 stopped by Bluetooth SIG this week, likely on its way to Verizon. In the past, all of Big Red’s Samsung device model numbers start with SCH, and since this phone is headed to North America, we would be shocked if it went elsewhere. So what is it? It could be the Galaxy S4 Mini. (more…)
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini was introduced this morning as the “practical” version of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S4. The Mini provides most of the experience one would get with the GS4, only it delivers it in a much smaller package and at what we are assuming to be a more budget-friendly price. (more…)
