I've the s4 mini was waiting for the s5 mini, as soon as a saw the specs I went and bought sony z1 compact.
So... this phone is like a Sony Xperia SP from 1 year ago then? :(
S3 mini was a flop because of the price and S4 mini was also a flop for the exact same reason.
Guess this device should be priced below 300€, but we all know this is never gonna happen and it will be priced 400€ or more and it will also be a big flop! :(
I don't understand how people buy this scam! :(
Great job Scamsung! :/
Anonymous, 03 Apr 2014Or chipset Exynos 5260 HEXAIndia launch may/june??
I already have S4 mini with 8MP and 1.5RAM memory. so I don't have to spend money for almost same performance...if specs are true than let's be patient and wait for S6 mini or move to other phone...

1.Display.- 4.5inch HD -Super AMOLED - CGG 3
2.Memory.- 2 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Snapdragon 801 or Tegra 4
gab, 02 Apr 2014Have you looked at sony xperia z1 compact?
flagship in "mini" cloathesYes the Z1 compact is interesting, high end. But it's bigger than the S4 mini so still too big for my liking..
A Z1 compact with smaller bezels (can do without waterproof) and with better camera (/software) would be very interesting.
S5 mini - 4.5 inches galaxy s2 flag ship 4.3 inches , ide like to no where mini fits into this , im disapointed if these are the official specs, will be released in australia for $550-650 and by the time it gets here there will be a z2 compact will be out . big flop samsung ,,, all you needed to do was keep it at 4.3 inches atleast a modern processor , hexa core or a snap 600 and atleast mali 640t or andreno 330 graphics gpu the S series is what makes samsung you need to pick up your game
The S4 mini has dual core and the S5 mini has a quad core processor. No other difference.
Anonym, 02 Apr 2014Moto G has a worst primary camera (5MP unit) and way worst secondary camera (1MP unit for self... moreConsidering the price difference you pay, you should realize that the Moto G is way better as the internals are better.
The MINI flag ship has the same snapdragon 400, similar quad core processor.
What you do not get on your flagship is a Gorila Glass 3 protection.
But for the price of 1.75 Moto G's you get one MINI
Maya, 02 Apr 2014U have just read the article and u don't even own one.. Get it? Own one? O-w-n o-n-e.. Hahaha... morei will be stupid if i "own one" after i read that article.
the camera is the most important thing for me after making calls in a mobile phone,i prefer a lower mega pixels with excellent results under every circumstances than higher mega pixels with distorted images when using the flash.
srv1987, 02 Apr 2014So, it's another Motot G in the price of 2 or 3 Moto G.Moto G has a worst primary camera (5MP unit) and way worst secondary camera (1MP unit for selfies).
Moto G doesn't have expandable memory either and it comes with way less RAM. (1.5x to be exact)
Moto G looks great for a cheap phone, but in reality it doesn't have such a good build quality when you start raising the bar to the level of these "flagship minis".
In short, a fantastic budget phone is targeted to a very different audience than a mini flagship, one which has substantially different quality requirements.
Maya, 02 Apr 2014Flash bleed what? What the heck are u talking about?? U don't even own one.. HahahahActually it's a very real problem which made me not buy that phone.
It's a shame really, since I was really looking forward for it (which, on paper, looked like it had a great camera). Thankfully I ended up stumbling upon those reports before "taking the plunge" and I am very grateful for that, since it would really make me very frustrated if I ended up with those piss-poor pictures under those light conditions. -- It just defeats the purpose of having a better camera.
777, 02 Apr 2014Barely a difference to S4 mini!!!What!? Please tell me where you can buy the Quad-Core S4 mini... I would have really enjoyed that.
777, 02 Apr 2014Barely a difference to S4 mini!!!did you read the article
mattdm, 02 Apr 2014If the bezels are sufficiently minimized, this will be a sufficient "mini" version o... moreagree to the fullest. the only problem is, i have a feeling that S4 is going to be really cheap soon. here in netherlands there is €100 cashback. when s5 is released s4 price will drop. eventually it will probably drop to ~€250 w/ cashback. that is a great price for still a very capable device albeit it is too big. s5 mini will be a very strong competitor for z1c
