Let's review those pages:

v4.master
  • Team site masterpage
  • User content pages (lists\content pages\etc)
  • _layouts pages (site settings, etc)
minimal.master
  • For app experiences, like Search or Office Web Applications
  • If you do not need site navigation
  • If you do not have a ribbon
  • If your app needs the space
simple.master
  • For error pages or login pages
  • Not customizable, but pages can be replaced
default.master
  • Show site using legacy interface
  • No Ribbon, no fluency
