Do you have an ADB (Android Debug Bridge) driver installed for it? Did you
enable USB Debugging in the device? If the device does not appear in ADB,
it will not appear in RADStudio.

Then Samsung lied, because it does support USB debugging (AFAIK, all Android
devices with a USB port do). In Android 4.2, the Developer Options were
hidden, but not removed. There is an Easter Egg to unhid the Developer Options
so you can then enable USB Debugging (amongst other things):

I can debug going step by step, I can see variable values.... and is S4 Mini (GT-I9195 in Delphi).

I use SAMSUNG_USB_Driver_for_Mobile_Phones.zip modified Mai 05,2011 (on Win 8.1) from here:
http://developer.samsung.com/android/tools-sdks/Samsung-Andorid-USB-Driver-for-Windows

What I recommend you do is run

adb devices

from a command prompt, where adb.exe is commonly install to
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\14.0\PlatformSDKs\adt-bundle-windows-x86-20131030\sdk\platform-tools.
Is your device listed there? My guess is no. If you cannot get it
listed, contact Samsung and find out why. Once adb devices lists your
device it should show up in RAD Studio.

One thing you might try doing is running Samsung Kies. I've had some
people say it installs what you need.

Note that I personally have a Samsung S4 and it just worked when I
plugged it into my computer. I've never heard of the S4 Mini before.

I installed Samsung drivers and it works very well here with XE5 and XE6.
