Galaxy S4 mini Review

If Samsung’s Galaxy S4 is more phone than you think you need, the electronics giant has just offered up the smaller, more midrange — and surely cheaper — Galaxy S4 Mini.

Like a decaffeinated beverage, Samsung is hoping to give its lighter smartphone much of the same taste with just a little less oomph. Although the Mini has stepped-down specs compared to its flagship family, like a lower-resolution screen and an 8-megapixel camera instead of a 13-megapixel shooter, it’s no slouch when it comes to the Galaxy S4’s core features, like a built-in TV remote control.

As with the Galaxy S3 Mini that came before, this version is aimed more at the mass market. The mini plays the role of the lower price option compared tp the marquee Galaxy S4, but without sacrificing some of the superphone’s more defining features.

The CNET crew will first get our hands on the smaller smartphone in London at the June 20 launch event, and we’ll have more thoughts to share when we do. Until then, here’s what we know about the phone, and how it should stack up against the original Galaxy S4.

Difference between 1080i and 1080p

9 Thoughts

There still seems to be some confusion about the difference between 1080i and 1080p. Both are 1,920×1,080-pixel resolution. Both have 2,073,600 pixels. From one perspective, 1080i is actually greater than Blu-ray. And, you can’t even get a full 1080p/60 source other than a PC, camcorder, or some still cameras that shoot video.

True, 1080i and 1080p aren’t the same thing, but they are the same resolution. Let the argument commence…

1080i and 720p
Because our TV world is based around 60Hz, and because there’s a limit to how much resolution could be transmitted over the air (because of bandwidth and MPEG compression), the two main HDTV resolutions are 1080i and 720p. Let’s start with 720p, as it’s the easier to understand.
