buying this phone bnd $500. and surprisingly no software update for s5 mini. im dissapointed. better get e series already lollipop versioned device.
My Samsung S5mini will not recognize a new Andrews Endoscopic camera. Is the OTG disabled in the S5 mini software?
it is a great mobile to buy
but i faced a problem after upgrading 5.1.1 lolipop
my contacts list and call logs shows a "contact list is updating" sign and it doesn't disappear
and it doesn't show my contacts
Anonymous, 26 Dec 2015What does it mean when it says it have touchwiz?Touchwiz is what Samsung calls their UI (User Interface).
Android phones usually share a common design theme, but phone manufacturers often add their own stuff on top of it. Motorola has MotoBlur I think, LG has Optimus, HTC has Sense, Sony's is just called Xperia which is confusing, and the OnePlus phones have OxygenOS, whereas Google's phones, because their parent company also makes Android, all have the stock Android UI without any custom tweaks and frills.
Give it a Google under the image search filter to see the differences, else check out a video on Youtube! Switching brands can sometimes be confusing because of these UI differences.
P.S. The only thing I can think of to note about the Touchwiz UI is that it supports screen-splitting; opening more than one app at the same time and splitting the screen real estate. It can be cool, I guess
Sherry, 18 Jan 2016Their is a software update i just checked now. what is your country please ?

Manuel, 23 Dec 2015Any news about lollipop on SM-G800F ? I have this mobile phone and there is no software upg... moreThe S5 mini can be easily updated to Lolipop 5.1.1 with Samsung Kies 3 on a computer
Am using this phone over one year. I lost my phone, but it can't be traced. Then I bought new s5 mini. Samsung must increase security to trace lost phones. Need an upgrade bcoz the RAM is not enough for me. S6 duos doesn't have water resistent feature. So waiting for S7 duos.

Guys seroiusly i have the phone 1 year and no update theres a 6.0 and i cant get even 5 on the SM-G800F not fair i loved samsung and believed them but this is dissapointing
makarios alfy, 30 Dec 2015i have that mobile and i can't upgrade it to android 5 You don't need to update it believe me.The newer OS is a rubbish.I have LG Nexus 4 and it came with OS 5.1.1 and I remove it and put it on 4.4.2 Kit Kat I think it's better tnan lolipop!!!
I want to compare memory wise on the s5 mini, i have the USA version, and it has 1.35 Gb of ram, and 12 gb of usable storage. Anyone else?
Does anyone knows if samsung is planning for a samsung galaxy s5 mini plus? I am asking this because there are s4 mini plus,s3 mivi VE, s2 plus..
