Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini release date and where to get it
Samsung has launched the Galaxy S4 Mini, a little brother to its current flagship handset. The phone is designed to satisfy those after something mid-range but with the looks and design of Samsung's other, higher-end devices. We've had the chance to see the SGS4 Mini in the flesh and it feels like a quality device, with a display that's nice and vibrant.
As is the case with pretty much every Samsung device, it is no doubt going to sell like hot cakes. So you're going to want to be ahead of the pack if you fancy picking one up. Read on to find out where you can get hold of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. Availability is expected to be from 1 July.
O2 has opened pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini on its website, with both black and white offered.
There's a range of tarriffs on offer, but the SGS4 Mini is a little pricey: if you want the handset for nothing, you'll have to take a two-year contract, costing you £37 a month. If you want a lower contract, but happen to have £350 to splurge on the handset, you'll be able to get a £22 a month contract instead. Of course, there's a full range of options so you can find something to fit your budget.

Three has confirmed availability of the device but is yet to say exactly when it will be released.
EE has the pre-order page for its Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini deals, and remember that this is a 4G handset, so you'll be able to take advantage of faster data speeds through EE.
Both colours of handset are offered, with two-year contracts starting at £31 and no up-front cost for the handset. If you're after a 12-month contract, they start at £41 a month, with a cost of £149.99 for the phone.

Orange Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini deals start at £26 a month with no extra cost for the handset on Panther 26, which is a two-year contract. There is a whole host of other options, if you'd like to increase the data or calls you get, or pay something up-front for the handset.
