Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini I9190 Review

At the beginning of last year, I bought a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini after deciding to 'boikot' (stop) using Apple phones. I got a pretty good deal at RM1400 at Giant mall, Puchong with free memory, 'diamond' screen protector and all the usual stuff. Aspects that attracted me was the size. It was small enough to just fit my hand, as I could never possibly feel comfortable with its larger sibling. Then there was the great graphics as well, not sure of its technical terms but whatever..
After half a year or so, it started lagging, firstly the memory space was not enough at 8GB. This mistake cannot be rectified as even though I have an external SD card, many apps cannot be transferred into it. Furthermore, I don't even have that many apps. It was around 30?

Then as time passes, things took a turn for the worst. Messaging started to lag and the battery drains so fast like nobody's business. Eg: I have it at 80% in the morning, and after my lectures at uni approximately at 2pm, it dropped till 40%. It can't even last a day!! I don't use it to play games, just check Whatsapp and use Gallery and capturing photos. 

Concerned of my situation with my phone, my dad, being a loyal customer to Sony, suggested me to get the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. All my life I only used Nokia, iPhone and Samsung. So, I thought why not give it a try. However, as we heard of a guy that sells the latest iPhone RM700 less than the RRP, we purchased it immediately. Yesterday I received my new iPhone 6, it's slightly larger than my hand so I probably will not be able to turn it 180 degrees as swiftly as before. 

With iPhone, there are always its drawbacks, being exclusive and special in terms of incompatibility with Adobe and other restrictions. I got this very pretty and cool earphones from the box, normally RRP: RM70. Can't wait to get a new Simcard and get started. It is my hope that I can use it for at least 2-3 years. Then it will be much more worth it.

Maxis iPhone 6 price (cheapest deal for 24 months contract):
16GB - RM 1539
64GB - RM1899
128GB - RM2259
I need to double-check how much my dad bought the iPhone 6 and let you guys know very soon!
