The international version of the galaxy s2 uses an exynos 4210 (also known as Exynos 4 Dual) chipset with a dual-core 1.2 GHz cortex-A9 CPU, and does not support LTE.

The European variants are definitely using an Exynos 3, with an Intel LTE modem. Most likely the US variants will be using the Snapdragon, is my guess.

Alb... moreFirst and foremost, the samsung galaxy s2 has a way different chipset than this s5 mini. The galaxy s2 had a dual-core 1.2 GHz CPU with a cortex-A9 core architecture, while the s5 mini has a quad-core 1.4 GHz CPU with a cortex-A7 core architecture. A cortex-A7 core actually provide same performance as a cortex-A9 core, but with lesser power consumption and better RAM management. Since the s5 mini has a quad-core cortex-A7 CPU, it can beat the hell out of a galaxy s2 and thanks to more RAM, it can even beat a galaxy s3. As far as the chipset is concerned, it has not been officially confirmed by samsung whether its an exynos or a snapdragon 400. Different leaks about this phone recently have indicated either one of the two chipsets. Maybe samsung might even use an exynos chip for the 3G variant and a Snapdragon 400 for the 4G variant, as it has done before in case of the galaxy s4, note 3 and s5.
Samsung makes a mistake but not putting an FM radio, not everybody has unlimited wifi data, plus wifi drains your battery faster. we need an Fm radio for local stations. sometimes u r in the mood for some news or even a sport event sometimes for music and with FM radio u don't need to worry about copying music , copyrights , storage , etc FM radio is very useful, even 4 those with unlimited data sometimes coverage is bad... or missing . fm radio saves u from those problems
For those who live in India...
Guys if u want to purchase a phone under 25k-30k then this is d correct device or u can say this device is an upgrade over galaxy s3 neo i9300i....
but those who want to purchase samsung galaxy s4 snapdragon version will have to purchase it from outside india like singapore,malaysia,phillipines etc.
All these 3 devices have snapdragon 400 chip except that s4 (i9505) lte version has snapdragon 600 chip outside india ...
so, s5 mini dual sm-g800h is best for customers who like samsung and lives only in india....
samsung has released kitkat firmware for s5 mini sm-g800h on samsung_updates.com
so stop complaining abt these devices as these devices just need aluminium body with good specs which should be stable...

Hi to all I have to say this phone has been long coming but that it is now available from quite a few places like just now found out that handtech UK have the black and the white versions in stock for £371.99 you will have to wait for the gold and blue version though.
As for myself I am still waiting for it to be available in dubai as I get most of my phones from there as they are a lot cheaper to buy I hope you lot enjoy your phones.
I think that phone is only a waste of money I mean you spend almost 343 pounds for an 8 mp camera a not even good CPU and the shitting part of the story is it doesn't even have the battery timing as compared to the g2 mini come on Samsung that phone released in February you should really go and check out the market
Wait...you mean Snapdragon 400 Adreno 305 for £389.95 ?
So essentially a bumped up camera and expandable memory costs you this much over a Moto G
Why are companies still spamming the Snapdragon 400 chip when better ones like the Snapdragon 600 are available ?
k11, 30 Jul 2014The s4 is a lot better than the s5 mini. Its got a bigger, 1080p screen, more powerful chipset... moreNot true that bigger phones are better than smaller ones, for playing psp games, phones with lower resolutions have avantage..beside ppsspp emulator and many other games have problems with full HD screen like note 3 and s4 and s5
bad, 28 Jul 2014no doul sim no radio high price... not available yet Hi samsung must change its cheep design and include some aluminum body it will be give added clue for user. For the money we pay we don't get that much satisfaction only that we love samsung, Android names

I got s4, the best, except the size I am happy everything. But samsung could release equal to upcoming iPhone 6.with 10 megapixcel camera, 4.7 inch screen and specs of s5 above features compared to price of iPhone this boy will sell well and Android people love it much.

And I'll still get updates for a year or so on the S4 by which time who knows what else is out there.

Its got a bigger, 1080p screen, more powerful chipset with more RAM, a better rear camera and both the s5 mini as well as the s4 run android 4.4 kitkat. S4 may or may not get an update to the upcoming android L version, but the s5 mini will. So go for s5 mini only if waterproofing and updates are very important to you.
Guys my dliemma is this, buy the one year old full size S4 or the brand new S5 Mini? I prefer the size of the S5 Mini but for my money the full size S4 is a much better spec, though older, phone. What do you think is best? New lower spec, or older better spec? thanks.
