Between your post and mine Samsung already made 2 or 3 new Galaxy's. They're the whore of the industry, dumping ground of mediocre crap. It's time they go down.
Sorry, tell a lie, the Moto X is there. Somehow managed to bleep over it first time. However, the Z1c still isn't there, and neither is the S4 mini, so we can't see how much of an IRL leap there's been between the current and newer phone...
Why is the Z1 Compact not shown on the benchmark results chart? It's one of the S5m's deadliest competitors after all... The only thing in there that's an actual match for it, sizewise, without having to go dreadfully down market, is the HTC One Mini 2. There isn't even the Moto X, just the (rather large) Moto G... but at the same time there's a variety of huegfones and tablets. Tch!

The Z1 compact is 4.3" which is 0.1 inches more than the 4.2 inch SGS 2
Sony have not got it completely right only partially
Sone were the first to give us dust and water, Proof, if needed they were thinking ahead (I wrote it taht way intentionally)
However still with the NON user replaceable battery, so as far as soft reset engineer only and again no spare
LG have now got it right in that the LG G3 is the LG G2 with microSD and removable battery
The LG G3 could be called the Lg G2S but per gsamarene the LG G3 had 3 timeas the sales voulme in the opening weekend in korea when compared to the S5
The LG G3 has been mareked down for NOT being both water and dust proof
The S5 mini corrects the 8GB,(5Gb user) in being 16GB
the S5 mini has a removable battery
So a standard now is water & dust microSD removable battery and 16GB and 1.5GB Ram (kit-kat 1Gb)
It will sell and the Z1compact needs to add battery
I really want to see how the Iphone 6 stacks up to this
Was really waiting for S5 mini. At the moment using S4 mini. Not worth to update. Will try S4 black edition probably price will be same like S5 mini

Samsung didn't get it! People want high end phones with medium size screens (4.0-4.5" screen). That's why people are buying Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. All the other 'minis' are just overpaid budget medium range phones.
So far only Sony got it right. Well done Sony!
Already got the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact and am very pleased! Samsung have at least tried to make it a better phone than the S4 Mini but missed it..
The specs of the S5 Mini are really weak. The S4 Mini has better specs even being dual core, compared to S5 Mini. The chipset of the S4 Mini it is a Krait 300 dual core, the same architecture of the Snapdragon 600 and more or less comparable to an Arm Cortex A15 but modified, with instructions A15, while the S5 Mini, it has a Cortex A7 quad core cpu. The graphics are better with better specs with the OpenGL ES 3.0 Api, thing that Mali 400 doesn't have. The S4 Mini it is globally better and superior than the S5 Mini.
Joey, 11 Jun 2014Because ppl don't want to carry around a phablets like the Android full sized phones, look at ... moreWhat about the Moto G? Out performs iphones in real life tasks. Or the Xperia M2, SP?? Or nokia 625?? All can do everything iphones can do,usually with greater ease and quicker. Iphones are just gimmicks that are marketed well. And their new ones will rival flagship droids in size but not performance.
