The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is one of the most popular mid-range devices in Kenya. The S4 Mini is a surrogate of the hot selling Samsung Galaxy S4 Smartphone. The S4 Mini has some decent specs that equally match its superb design.
The Sony Xperia Compact is another mid-range handset that is too hard to ignore. It was the first handset to match its surrogate it pretty much every tech specification. The main difference between the Z1 Compact and its older sibling, the Sony Xperia Z1 is the display and frame size.
Enough with the techie talk, let the duel begin!
