Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Unboxing by Wirefly

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is one of the latest additions to the Galaxy family of Android Smartphones, but does it belong.

See what comes in the standard retail package of the Verizon Wireless version of the Galaxy S4 MIni and see it next to its big brother the Galaxy S4.

Moto G vs Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini

If you are wanting a device a little more pocket friendly than say the Galaxy S4, Note 3, Oppo N1 then you either look at an iPhone or 'mini' versions of phones!

Close to the EDGE (Note Edge review)

Posted on: December 16th, 2014 by blaquejohn

First and foremost I concede the edge is basically the Note 4 and it definitely is not for everybody. What attracted me to it is the very thing that will turn some people off(limited production). Does the edge screen justify the added cost, of course not but no phone's features justify it's cost to be perfectly honest, so cost is a moot point. I'm not going to delve deeply into the features because you can read/watch a Note 4 review for that. I purchased the edge because I have a strong desire to be different and I love when I'm out and about playing with it how people stop stare and often drool that is definitely worth the extra cost.

RUN as fast and fare as you can

Posted on: December 16th, 2014 by Seaffs@gmail.com

There service is by far the worst in the market bolth data and voice. There Custimer service is so bad I am paying Someone else to fix the problem. There staffs nil age of the products and proseagers is so bad i can't beleave sprint is still in busness and that comes from the top pore uper Managment all the way to the top. I would not seguest useing sprint if you have any dependence on your device working when you need it I have decided to bite the bullet and pay the contract out and go somewhere else were I can get a ancer or Soulations to an issue in less then 3 weeks. Shuld not be hard th fiend. (I WOULD NEVER OG BACK TO SPRINT)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NET10 - please stay away from

Posted on: December 15th, 2014 by audi

Hopeless coverage Hopeless service Please stay away or rather spend the money on the payphone. I was not able to get international card in 15 locations. I have purchased nationwide card in hope to call customer service and convert it into international calling minutes (even with the loss of some $). That was not available. They made me buy international unlimites calling card for $65.00 which cancelled my $30.00 unused card. Unfortunately this card did not work for the destination I am calling (Poland, European Union). I am $95.00 short and still unable to make calls. There is no way to get the money back from them. Please beware.

Sleek and fast phone

Posted on: December 15th, 2014 by christoph.weber

I was eligible for a device upgrade on my Verizon Edge plan and only needed to pay tax on the full price, plus a monthly lease fee that will amount to just a little more than the full upfront price. So naturally I jumped at the opportunity to snag a 64GB iPhone 6, upgrading from a 16GB iPhone 5, and am glad I did. It's a sleek device and very fast! I love the additional breathing room the larger 4.7" screen affords, and am absolutely in love with TouchID. The device feels great in my hand and does pretty much everything I need. I have owned every major generation of iPhone since iPhone 3 (3, 4 5 and now 6, none of the S models) and Apple keeps delighting me with nice new touches and improvements. This one is no exception. I am knocking off a star for battery life, but that's more of a knock on iOS and apps which continue to add battery-sapping features, and not necessarily a negative point for the device. iPhone 6 easily lasts me for a full day and some, but two full days of light use, or one day of very heavy use would be nice, without having to step up to a phablet. One can dream...

The worst provider, worst carrier, worst customer service hands down!

Posted on: December 14th, 2014 by lhelms

Why is it that I can't rate this company with a big fat zero? They're liars. Their service is crap no matter where you are. Their customer service reps are rude, untrained and say anything to get you off the phone. They've been claiming they're upgrading their all new network for years. I see 4GLTE from time to time and it works horribly! Every other service is better. T-Mobile seems to have moved ahead of the rest, but Verizon is good service, although it costs more. Sprint says they're lowering their prices to compete with T-Mobile, but they're liars. Compare a T-Mobile bill to a Sprint bill for the exact same service. You'll find out you're paying more for much less. If you enter into a contract, they will screw you and won't let you out without a huge penalty. Save yourself and don't even think about going with Sprint.

Dropped the ball immediately

Posted on: December 10th, 2014 by IHateTMobile

I thought I had been to the lowest pit of Hell when I was with Verizon, but no, T Mobile has created an even lower, darker pit of Hell. I'm going into hour 5 of setting up new service. I live in a very rural area and they are my only choice. The first T Mobile genius had my account set up and ready to go when the call disconnected. She didn't call back or email me. She had both sources of contact. I gave her 10 minutes. Then I called back to T Mobile. I got a different, even less able to think genius and I told him I already set up my service, I should be on the computer somewhere. He couldn't find me, but assured me that it would take just 10 minuted to setup my service. Wrong. First he couldn't find my address, then he kept adding the bill wrong. I have 7 phones in the family plan. He couldn't get it right. He kept putting me on hold to "check on something". Finally, he got the amounts right and I paid with my credit card. He put me on hold again and then I waited, and waited, and waited. 45 minutes before the 3rd Genius picks up. In the meantime, I call T Mobile back on a different line. I get a supervisor who says I'm not in the system at all, nothing has been set up. He hands me off to his assistant and she has to set everything up AGAIN! Meanwhile, the 3rd genius whats me to finish the setup of the accounts with her. To their credit, meager as it is, they gave me $50 off the phones I bought and waived all set up fees. Big whoop! This is the beginning of what I fear will be a long, bad relationship. I'm willing to put up a cell tower on my farm if AT&T is listening!

NEVER GOT MY REFUND

Posted on: December 10th, 2014 by

VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH CRICKET. The service is ok. Switched from Verizon and paid $600 to end our contract with them. We will most likely be switching back to Verizon. The customer service with cricket is AWFUL!! You can't get ahold of anyone and when you finally do they hardly speak English! was on the phone for 25 minutes this morning finally got through to ask about our $100 rebate (2 phones at $50 each for rebate) he could not help me but transferred me to the rebate department that is completely automated and you cannot talk to an actual person and all it kept saying is I'm sorry we have no rebate record for this number. (I MAILED IN MY REBATE JUNE, THAT'S 6 MONTHS AGO!) So we are out our $100 because everyone I talk to just transfers me to the rebate department ..... disappointed in cricket!

They don't deserve a star!

Posted on: December 9th, 2014 by glash

Been with T-Mobile for 3 years now and there service sucks but so does a lot carriers around here so I put up with them. Until now, I just renewed my phones back in Aug and got a few more phones as well. They told me that I could only have 5 lines on one account and would have to have two accounts in order to get more. I said fine, about a month later they decided it was ok to have 10 lines on one account and I could combine the two accounts into one and maybe save a little money at the same time. I said great let’s do it. A month later I get a bill for 215 bucks and I call and ask what it is about as my normal bill has already been paid. They said they did not know, it most likely was just a system error from switching to one account in the middle of a billing cycle. They told me to just ignore the bill and everything would be fine. Next month, I get the same bill except this time they say it is past due and they need their money now or they will send me to collections. Wow! So I call up again and say this is apparently not nothing, you need to look into it and figure out what is going on. I very good credit and do not want you reporting me as a dead beat and ruining my credit. So it take some time but they finally decide that it was a phone that did not get transferred over from the other account. While I thought all the phones were accounted for on the new bill I told them what ever just do what you have to do to fix this and not let it go any further. So I was on hold for a while longer and everything was finally fixed supposedly. After they did that I requested to talk to a supervisor just to make sure everything was taking care of this time. I ended up talking to two supervisors that day both of which told me that everything is fine now and I do not need to worry about this issue anymore. Next month rolls around and guess what, I got a call from the collection agency. What the hell! I call them up again and once again no one seems to know how it got this far and how it happened. But they really really promise that everything is fixed this time. I call BS and want someone to fix this now, you have already ruined my credit by reporting me to a collector and refuse to fix it. I am really just done with you all, and until my credit is fixed I am making it my mission now to prevent anyone else from getting TMobile. Hope to see you out of business soon!
