Samsung vs. Apple
The S series from Galaxy is the top selling phone, at present, among the Android based phones. It is also giving a neck to neck competition to the rival Apple.
Contrary to Samsung, which caters to the low priced segment with its new and different models, Apple sells its older iPhone models at fewer prices. This strategy by Apple has come out well as the company is able to make its manufacturing and software support simpler. However, there are talks around that Apple will soon drop a low priced iPhone, which will be targeted towards the customers who want to shell out less money and get an iPhone too.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini will be available in black and white colors.
