Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the Galaxy S4 mini I9195I by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The Galaxy S4 mini I9195I is a size that allows you to have a firm grip even while using it. Since your hand is kept stable, it is difficult to accidentally drop the phone, and it is very easy to use. Since the original body size is small, the phone is still easy to hold even when using a case.

Since the body of the Galaxy S4 mini I9195I is lightweight, your hands will hardly ever feel sore or tired even after using the phone for a long time. Also, since it is a light and compact phone, it will still be easy to hold even when using a case.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

Even when used with one hand, the Galaxy S4 mini I9195I has a size which allows buttons on the edges of the display to be operated. However, people with small hands may lose their grip if they try to press the buttons at the edges.

The size of the buttons on the App

Overall, the operating buttons on the Galaxy S4 mini I9195I feel small. This makes it easy to mistap, but usually this won't be a problem once you get used to it. The operating buttons in games are generally small so you may feel like it is hard to control when you're playing.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

It is difficult to not have typos with the Galaxy S4 mini I9195I because each button on the keyboard is quite small, and it is almost impossible to type fast with the device. With a device this size, it'd be better to switch to flick input so you can type faster.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the Galaxy S4 mini I9195I is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

In general, the Galaxy S4 mini I9195I displays characters and pictures in sizes that are easy to see. While some characters may look small depending on the app, they are not really difficult to see. Therefore, it can be said to be more than adequate for uses such as searching the Internet and messaging.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the Galaxy S4 mini I9195I displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The Galaxy S4 mini I9195I can display photos and videos beautifully. While people with good eyes can see jagged outlines when they look at the display up close, it is not really something of concern.

Ease of writing sentences

When typing a sentence with the Galaxy S4 mini I9195I the keyboard obscures the screen to some extent. While I do feel like there isn't enough work space to allow for long sentences, for short sentences it isn't really an issue.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

The Galaxy S4 mini I9195I has performance that allows it to be used comfortably for phone calls, emails, and chat. It is rare but sometimes there is lag. Still, this almost never occurs, so it can be said to be suitable for normal use.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

The performance felt lacking when using the internet and SNS. Sometimes the apps felt like they were running slowly. If I kept using it when that happened apps would close suddenly or stop completely.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

There isn't any sense of inadequate performance even when several apps are used at the same time and there is frequent switching between apps. In rare cases, it may feel slow and the display may lag, but I don't think one will feel stressed during practical use.
