Galaxy S4 Mini

Ludicrous $500 off-contract price likely won't entice many to forgo the service agreement

Although the carrier didn't make much noise about it, U.S. Cellular is now selling the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. While we knew the smaller (and lesser-appointed) Galaxy S4 was headed to the carrier at some point in November, no new information was known until the phone just popped up on its online store.

The Galaxy S4 Mini can be yours on U.S. Cellular for $50 with a two-year contract or (a frankly absurd) $500 without any service agreement. You'll have your choice of white or black for the color, and in either case you'll be getting much the same experience as those who have the S4 Mini internationally or in the states on Verizon.

If you are considering the S4 Mini on U.S. Cellular, you may want to shop around just a bit, however. The carrier is currently running promotions that peg devices like the Moto X at free on-contract.

dont know why anyone would buy this phone. dont expect any update from Android 4.2.2. look at s3 mini still running 4.1

also, Moto X is now free or $50 for mtoto maker with KitKat

No, AndroidCentral reported the S4 Mini will is getting 4.3 now. But it's still a bad scheme by Samsung to make more profit from unwary buyers, similar to the failed iPhone 5c (I think it can be said now).

Just buy a Moto G and get newer softwares without the Touchwiz lag. Although I guess the S4 Mini camera is going to be alot better than Moto G, it's not worth the 2 years contract or $500.

Do I believe it? Yeah it has a decent shot. I am just talking about the leaked docs. Not that they are the most reliable either...

Anyone reading this post is obviously not buying this phone. This is for the poor uninformed consumer who has heard the galaxy and Samsung name. Shame on you carriers for selling this, you should probably credit people $50 or $100 if you sign a contract for this phone.
