There's no way a yet to be released device has garnered near perfect rating and three thousands reviews.
Samsung should launch a real S7 Mini and S7 Edge Mini instead.

It would've been a mesmerizing development had this been released in the Summer, but now it's more akin to having too little to late.
Aspros, 26 Dec 2015 i really doubt that anyone can compete with sony for a compact flagship, most companies simpl... moreGalaxy Alpha is basically better than everything in Xperia Z compact except storage.
A) Better battery (practically infinite by using spares)
B) More accurate colors when you use the "photo mode"
C) Unlocking the bootloader does not kill the Warranty
D) Better XDA presence (more roms/kernel to choose from)
E) Better camera in everything except low light.
F) Physical buttons, so the phone "chin" is used and the screen seems bigger
Only Disadvantage lack of Micro-SD which implies low storage. It supports OTG though which kind of solves the problem for some.
With Samsung having the crown of best "compact phone" I'd look forward for S6 mini.
i really doubt that anyone can compete with sony for a compact flagship, most companies simply cannot have the tech to support downsizing, only advanced technology and now how allow that. Samsung was never good at downsizing, they always thought thast bifger is better and when they try to reduce size, they do it at the expense of smth else, like the stereo speakers, water resistance, battery capacity,top of the line cpu, big camera, etc...
they never managed to fit all that into a compact size, never will, oneplus has failed too...
Anonymous, 25 Dec 2015Z3C is still a better value... Maybe even the Z1CYes, yes, yes may be Nokia 3310 from 2001 isn't it?
What a mentality...
Anonymous, 25 Dec 2015Sony= big bland big bezeled brickLol, the Z3C has better screen-to-body ratio than Samsung devices of similar size. And this is with stereo speakers and waterproofing
Now it's too late , already I bought the S5 New Edition which has 16 GB of internal memory (no Gorilla Glass 3 ) but has slot to expand the memory.

Far to late now S7 is on way. Still good they are doing mini versions though but would sell more if it was a mini version like Sony do.
Johny Amadeus, 25 Dec 2015This samsung need to be FHD, contained Snapdragon 650 and Type-C!!!with microSD card slot....and no Touchwiz please !
I think it's stupid & certainly not a good idea. Samsung should just concentrate on new future models instead.
wow so many people commenting this and want to buy when it is actually a fake LOL picture is just normal S6 ...
.....but it would be nice to see one more pathetic mini from Samsung....

I'm waiting for oneplus mini. Samsung and HTC are really screwing people on their mini.
