I want to buy my first smartphone. I've read all kinds of reviews and so far the galaxy s4 mini appeals the most to me. But i have a few questions....
The look and feel of the user interface isn't really to my taste. Can you change this easily to make it look more like standard android?
Samsung installs a lot of software i don't care about. Can i get rid of it without rooting? Or at least disable it so it doesn't slow down the smartphone?
If i got it right android has been upgraded from 4.2.2 to 4.3. Will this device get 4.4? Any chance at future upgrades? Or is the device to old and mid-range?
Can you disable the fake shutter sound while taking a picture? On this page [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click Here To Register...] the is a demonstration movie about all the possibilities of the camera. Being able to take 20 pictures in a row seems nice. Until you hear the sound it makes, it's like a machine gun. The way it sounds, i wouldn't dare use that feature.
I want to buy an SDHC card for the device, because of it's lack of free memory. What kind of speed is recommended?
