With the big 3 telco’s announcing that they would be offering the little brother of the main Samsung flagship device, the Galaxy S4 Mini, you would be mistaken that you could only get this device either through the main telco’s or a grey importer, but it seems Big W is looking to cash in the popularity of the Galaxy S range.
In the latest catalogue Big W are offering the Galaxy S4 Mini for $548, which is $24 more than Allphones outright price and $119.09 more than Expansys outright price, although to be fair, the Big W and Allphones versions would be the local unlocked versions.

Would you consider buying the Galaxy S4 Mini from Big W? Have you already got and are using the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini? What do you like or dislike? We would like to hear your thoughts and comments below
Sure, I’d buy A phone from Big W, but not THIS phone… ridiculously overpriced IMHO. I’m still on my Huawei Ideos circa 2010, it still does what I need, and it was a quarter of the price of this. Is it 4 times better? I doubt it…
What a ripoff of a phone. What a disgrace to the Samsung s4 name.
The Optimus G for $388 (JB HiFi) or Nexus 4 for $319 (delivered from Play Store) are better alternatives for a lower price.
