The Galaxy S 4 brand is growing, and with the latest additions, there's a Galaxy smartphone for everyone.  Aaron unboxes the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini.  It brings to the table a 1.7 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display (540x960 pixels), 1.5 GB of RAM, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 1,900 mAh battery, 8 GB of internal storage, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz.  It's not available on a US carrier yet, but those that want it can purchase global variants online at Negri Electronics.

Despite being a "mini" version of the flagship Galaxy S 4, the specs are more of a step backwards than many will like.  Is it worth sacrificing key hardware and software features for a more pocketable device?
