I bought this phone right after it went on sale in july 2014. I really thought it will be one of first phones that will get android 5 update ASAP, silly me. Since then I was reading articles about planned update "soon". First in december 2014 then april 2015 etc. ... Well it's december 2015 and still nothing. I really should have waited for Z3 compact at the time.
It's a shame because I really do enjoy frequent OS restarts, weak GPS signal and sluggish UI
As for me, no more samsung, maybe a fridge, if it freezes the way like their phones, ...

When S5 mini will be updated to Android 5.0.1 lollipop??
or no update?
help , 23 Nov 2015How can i fix my s5 mini that keeps draining and overheating ?Try a factory reset (dont forget to back up ur data before reset).
Phone specs are very good, but performance is poor. I am using S5 mini more that a year and it already has been at service 4 times - on 4th attempt to fix it service did not took it just said that I should go to store and ask money back :)
Main bugs are:
android stops to work
restarts 10 - 20 times in row
can not make call because it says no coverage, meantime coverage is full
can not use internet as it says no wifi or no coverage, meantime there is 4g coverage and wifi connected.
and also true about navigation - its not precise
Same problems had 2 of my colleagues.
I also changed sim but no results, so my opinion is to avoid Samsung mini models.
My S5 mini (G800F) has big GPS issues. The position isn't accurate and it loses it very frequently when I'm driving. Plus there is a strange beep sound tha occurs randomly during calls
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2015How is s5 mini`s performance??Performance is very good, I have it.
I love mini phone and then forget the password wrong fingerprint information in the phone is very important to me, how can you help me
I've had this phone for over a year now and it is totally awesome, can do just about anything while on the go...9/10
ifagbemi ogunwale, 12 Oct 2015please teach me how to use the remote censor on Samsung galaxy S5 MiniJust download any remote control app and configure it. That's all
After 6 years using the same phone (since 2009) i start using this one. and i'm good with it. didn't travel much, so, i don't know how to resist on travel situations with the battery he got. But you can make everything like you do on your computer. The front camera( selfie camera) shoul be a bigger one in megapixels..
Could anyone give advice what model is better to buy, SG S3 neo or this one?
Since I bought first Samsung device (Galaxy Note 10.1) I felt in love with this brand and Android then I bought Tab 2 7.0 then Galaxy S3 mini. Because I loved this phone I decided to buy S5 mini and S4 mini for my girlfriend. It's been an over a year since I've got s5 mini and I have to say that I'm very disappointed.
First of all, Samsung health apps are pointless. It counts my steps even when I sit. Besicaly I unistalled almost all Samsung apps. Phones keeps freezing sInce was bought making me oversleep for work or unable to answer important night phone calls.
The most frustrating thing are updates! It's November 2015 and this phone is still on Android KitKat!!! They've been announcing Lollipop update sice September 2014... They still tell people that Lollipop update is coming soon but what's the point if lots of phones have got Marshmallow already?!
Samsung let me down a lot, even my Smart TV lost quite a lot of "smart" functions within due to outsource contracts agreements within last 1.5 years.
So if you're thinking about having great phone up to date, don't think about Samsung!
I bought this phone few weeks ago and I think it's great. Camera is awesome, front camera is perfect, especially at the day, it's fast, great performances, multitasking works perfectly, beautiful OS and animations, SO PERFECT screen and resolution, you should buy it if you want compact phone with nice specs.
