Galaxy S4 mini  vs One X

We are genuinely impressed by how light, thin, and extremely portable the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini is considering the fact that it packs a 4.3-inch screen and a 1900mAh battery.

Tabbed browsing and incognito browsing are available in both browsers, but making new bookmarks in Samsung's own browser is slightly easier than in Chrome.

Reasons to choose the S4 mini, "faster processor speed." - Erm yes 1.7 is faster than 1.5 BUT the 1.7 is dual core and the 1.5 is QUAD core! DOH! So in fact the processor is a reason to buy the one x. "uses oled" - We could debate the oled verses slcd till the cows come home. This is not a reason to choose either! Reasons to choose one x. "screen size" 4.7 vs 4.3. - Yes it has a bigger screen but this is surely down to personnel preference My wife has smaller hands than me and so prefers a slighter smaller screen for easier control of the phone.
