S4s and note 3s have had the lollipop update long before the devices you mentioned. Now tell me more about the desire series, G2 variants or even the G3 variants. What was that you were saying? Lol

Flagships costs more, so they gets its life extended, because user pays for it. You can buy phone under 200€ ans shout loudly "why they did not released upgrade? This phone is really capable to run it!". Not only you folks knows how to count - if you pay more, you get longer update life cycle. If samsung, sony, apple or other big boy would update their midrangers as long as users shouts, then flagsips should have update cycle for 5+ years. In short - you got what you paid for, now please keep your whining for yourself. I, myself had only one samsung midranger (galaxy s2 plus) and it got only one android update (Android 4.2.2), so from that time, I had note 2, now I have S4, and have no complains.
S4 Mini will get lollipop update in near future.
Atleast International S4 Mini units will get it.
GT-I9190,I9195,I9192 should get it.
Check this link ::
Do not panic. Do not curse samsung.
S4 Mini has 1.5Gb ram and more than enough processing power
to run lollipop.
S4 mini will get lollipop 5.0.1. Pls check this link http://samsung.youmobile.org/
AnonD-332464, 25 Apr 2015s5 mini has 1.5 GB of ram just like s4 mini but it will be getting lollipop!? Is this another ... moreYa.... It sounds like something apple would do.... wonder what Samsung is playing at....
Meanwhile HTC users already enjoy 5.0 on their One M7s and LG users on their G2s. Samsung's become greedy with all that momentum they currently have and already started having an apple-like disrespect for their customers.
I like samsung and even though at the moment i have xperia z1 which i love i still prefer samsung phones, but if you want a compact phone sony is the way to go, same specs same everything just a smaller screen, no downgrade unlike htc and samsung. But given how s6 turned out no removable battery, no water proof no sd slot i think my next phone might be another sony. Only thing sony xperia z line would need to be perfect is an amoled screen.
Sony Xperia Z1 Compact has upgraded to Lollipop
people need to chill the hell out like holy crap! Im glad they aren't going to update this old thing like what if this shit bricked your perfectly fine working phone you've been using all these years?? Just be glad what you have with you for now and stop whining and move on with the life.
It's just a phone for Christ's sake.
The s4 mini update to lollipop is confirmed..
Watching in a daily basis today shows that the update is cofirmed!
mike.m, 25 Apr 2015This is getting ridiculous. Not everyone can afford or wants a high end/huge screen flagship p... moreWell said,i have a note 3 and wont even entertain lollipop.mines running smoothly on kitkat and im not gona bugger my phone and apps up like it did my m8s note 3.he regrets updating now. But like you said its samsungs scam to get you to by a flagship when a budget phone does everything on kitkat !
I never understand Samsung, they have so much phones on the market and can't even update them,am sure in a few months, they will release a low end phone with 3.2 mp cam and 4gb internal and 1gb ram with lollipop. Yet s4 mini can't support lollipop.
thank god i have motorola.
started with jellybean,now i have lollipop.
Have you guys checked out you mobile. It's been confirmed. I even asked three myself. Please update this. As your making many customers very angry for no reason. Sincerely me.
I beg To differ.
This is getting ridiculous. Not everyone can afford or wants a high end/huge screen flagship phone. And you have morons on here that say crap like "deal with it". This is a midrange phone that is perfectly capable of handling lollipop. I prefer these mid range phones cause frankly, the flagships are too freaking big, these are the perfect size with pretty decent power/specs. At least there is Cyanogenmod, but even they are slowly starting to only support flagships too. What a fkn marketing scam, cunning shiftless bastards.
Put a big sticker on the box then; "Warning. You are not shelling $700+ for a phone that won't fit in your jeans. This phone will not be updated with performance and major security updates". Oh stock Android, what have they done to you...
S4 Minis will be receiving the Lollipop update. The news they received was outdated. Samsung is working hard right now to start rolling it out, make sure to check your phone everyday for this update, I would be expecting it soon.
S4 mini lollipop
I was so angry when i saw this news i was waiting for it for so many months and now i opened the web and saw this news i am so disappointed with you samsung,so now i understand they only update the flagship devices not the compact small ones. Very annoyed.
Hope the same will not happen for Grand 2 also.. :(
