Aprix, 17 Apr 2016Hello ppl, Im just buying a new phone, to buy Samsung S5 mini or Samsung A5 2015?Forgot to mention,the more recent phone will be able to bump up to a more updated version of Android in the future. And,have you considered the J5?
Aprix, 17 Apr 2016Hello ppl, Im just buying a new phone, to buy Samsung S5 mini or Samsung A5 2015?Love my Mini! Love Samsung! (Not one single Samsung share in my portfolio.)
The Mini is older and has a vastly inferior camera to the A5 (at least on specs). Mini has slightly more CPU but slightly less RAM. And comparable batts BUT: I prefer removable battery. I can use and abuse (games,er...,games) my batt and swop it out when it gets short on life. Also,(slightly) smaller Mini fits perfectly in my hand. Overall,however,I would go with the more recent phone though. Especially if you use for two years,then swop on contract. IF you buy for the long-run (I.E.: Not paying Soo much more over time for the handset on contract),get removable batt phones.
Hope this helps!

I have a 27 day old - bought brand new factory sealed, unbranded S5 mini.
All this phone does is overheat and drain the battery at around 20%/hour even when turned off,
according to Samsung service centre the phone is 100% AOK meaning that overheating a battery drain is normal.
Get an iPhone/HTC instead
