This phone is designed to work on select GSM networks and is 4G LTE capable.

International Variant / International LTE
The GT-I9195I is an international variant of the Galaxy S4 Mini. The GT-I9195I's LTE radio is tuned to frequencies that are most often used outside of North America. It can still be used in the Americas, though LTE access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network. Please note that the GT-I9195I does not support popular LTE bands used in the United States. To ensure this phone will work with your carrier, please check to make sure the frequencies your carrier uses are supported by this phone. The full list of compatible carrier frequencies can be found here; the frequencies this phone supports can be found in the product specs.

Because the GT-I9195I is an international variant, the language of the box and the default language of the phone may not be in English. Also, an international AC to USB adapter may be included.

    Samsung GT-I9195 Reviews

    Galaxy S4 Mini GT-I9195I 8GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upgraded Model S4 Mini Plus Just received the phone. Bh Photo model SAGTI9195B. The phone came in with a label stating it is a Quad Core 1.2 Processor and has wide enhanced selfie. After searching the product number on the box (GT-i9195I ) we found this to be an upgraded model Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Plus 4G LTE. The 4G does not work in the U.S. which is exactly what we expected. The 4G lte is for other countries. The OS is KitKat from the factory. Phone is very responsive. It does come in set to a foreign language. Easily changed when first starting up. The phone has a European charger with a U.S. adapter. The charger is a USB 2.0 - Micro. We will use the same charger we have been using for every other phone and leave the Euro charger in the box. The same charger style is used in Brazil. 2 prong round. Easy to set up the phone to wifi. The entire process was quick and easy. Perfect sized phone for my wife. Samsung quality is great as normal. The data speed is fine without the 4G for the amount she uses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good phone at great price. I bought this for my wife. It fits a lot better in her smaller hands. She loves the bright screen and all the functionality. She previously had a Lumia 521. She liked it but it did not have a flash. Our little girl dropped and broke the screen. She did not want to buy the latest expensive phones, as they do not add a lot more to functionality. This phone is more then sufficient for 95% of people.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. It is hard to get a 4-4.3 display smartphone with decent CPU/RAM in 2016. The only choice is Apple iPhone 5s or iPhone SE. I was using a s4 mini GT-i9192 dual sim. Sadly it died overnight on a charger suddenly. I had to get another piece of the same kind because I need a phone that does not sag in the shirt pocket, can be operated with one hand (not a viking sized hand), is nifty responsive and offers world wide connectivity for 2G/3G. s4 mini is not available in my country (India) any more. I could only find it here in the US - all of them international versions that will not connect to US 4G networks (which does not bother me). The phone is up and running and working just as sweetly as the one before.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent phone Excellent phone but default language on phone and instruction booklet was Czech. I can Not uninstall Czech language apps on the phone via Google Store. It should have been English! B & H tech support was very helpful to get US English as default language!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awsome phone Bad battery I love this little phone it is awesome fits in the pocket nicely does everything it bigger brother the Samsung S4 does but without all the bulk of it bigger brother but for some reason the battery does not hold a charge very long even with all the goodies turned off it goes dead in about 6 hours after a full charge on the battery and that's just in stand buy mode but it is a nice phone!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, beautiful with great features I just love my new Galaxy S4 Mini. I didn't want to have the big size S4 and having the mini option just come perfect to my needs. The phone is beautiful and have all the features the big one has. The only downsize I've noticed, it does not have as good connection as my old HTC. I really wish they will work better on that on new models.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good (if u read Dutch,use T-Mobile) This was a gift purchase for my wife. The gift did not enhance my loving husband rank! My wife wanted a good quality smartphone that would fit her small hand and one which would not tie her to a long term contract with a carrier and which would be compatible with GSM and have both 3G and 4G capability and LTE. The GT-i9195 seemed to be a perfect fit to our requirements. We could not find a GT-i9195 S4 mini at any walk in stores available to us. B&H seemed like a good solution for our problem. The phone hardware seems to be very good, the Android OS is fine. All stored registration instructions are in Dutch and the phone was clearly made for T-Mobile subscribers (I thought unlocked indicated no vendor specific information would be on the phone)since a very annoying T-Mobile app which provides welcome and close screen and sound is stored in ROM and cannot be disabled. I am learning how to root the phone to get rid of the annoying attributes. If I can successfully root the device I think it will become a fine device for my wife (I hope she agrees). Because the phone was built by Samsung for the Dutch market and I purchased it from a U.S vendor, the two year Samsung warranty is void (BH tells you, in the online info,they provide a 90 day warranty). What they don't tell you is that Samsung will tell you they have no responsibility for supporting the phone--at least that's what they have told me, albeit, very nicely. All in all, our problems are primarily a result of our ignorance of the arrangements Samsung has made with US carriers to NOT vend some of their phones on the open retail market in the US. If we could have purchased a GT-i9195 from a US vendor and received full Samsung support and warranty coverage, we would have done so. What we did instead is make an expensive bet that a Samsung S4 phone is a sufficiently reliable device that having only a 90 day warranty will not matter.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Experience Needed I received an unlocked Samsung Galaxy International GT-I9195 smartphone from B&H that was from the Czech Republic. The default language was Czech and there were welcome/shutdown screens from O2 (a telecommunications company operating in Europe and Czech Republic) and some other items in Czech language. I had to spend considerable time switching the phone to English and deleting some of the Czech items (apps and/or bookmarks). Unfortunately, I cannot get rid of the O2 displays without rooting the phone. The phone was discounted by B&H but I paid for the discount with my time. B&H kindly offered to take back the phone and give me a refund, but I had so much time invested that I decided to keep the phone. It is a very good phone now that I have made many changes. This experience is not for the novice.

    If Straight Talk is a GSM service (and I think it is) then, Yes, this phone is compatible with it. The phone is not compatible with CDMA service protocol; e.g. Verizon

    Will this work for sprint?
    Asked by: Nicholas
    Unfortunately not. This S4-Mini version is GSM based (ATT&T, T-Mobile type networks). To work with Sprint your phone selection must be CDMA based.
