Hi to all I have to say this phone has been long coming but that it is now available from quite a few places like just now found out that handtech UK have the black and the white versions in stock for £371.99 you will have to wait for the gold and blue version though.
As for myself I am still waiting for it to be available in dubai as I get most of my phones from there as they are a lot cheaper to buy I hope you lot enjoy your phones.
I think that phone is only a waste of money I mean you spend almost 343 pounds for an 8 mp camera a not even good CPU and the shitting part of the story is it doesn't even have the battery timing as compared to the g2 mini come on Samsung that phone released in February you should really go and check out the market
Wait...you mean Snapdragon 400 Adreno 305 for £389.95 ?
So essentially a bumped up camera and expandable memory costs you this much over a Moto G
Why are companies still spamming the Snapdragon 400 chip when better ones like the Snapdragon 600 are available ?
k11, 30 Jul 2014The s4 is a lot better than the s5 mini. Its got a bigger, 1080p screen, more powerful chipset... moreNot true that bigger phones are better than smaller ones, for playing psp games, phones with lower resolutions have avantage..beside ppsspp emulator and many other games have problems with full HD screen like note 3 and s4 and s5
bad, 28 Jul 2014no doul sim no radio high price... not available yet Hi samsung must change its cheep design and include some aluminum body it will be give added clue for user. For the money we pay we don't get that much satisfaction only that we love samsung, Android names

I got s4, the best, except the size I am happy everything. But samsung could release equal to upcoming iPhone 6.with 10 megapixcel camera, 4.7 inch screen and specs of s5 above features compared to price of iPhone this boy will sell well and Android people love it much.

And I'll still get updates for a year or so on the S4 by which time who knows what else is out there.
bianconero, 30 Jul 2014Guys my dliemma is this, buy the one year old full size S4 or the brand new S5 Mini? I prefer ... moreThe s4 is a lot better than the s5 mini. Its got a bigger, 1080p screen, more powerful chipset with more RAM, a better rear camera and both the s5 mini as well as the s4 run android 4.4 kitkat. S4 may or may not get an update to the upcoming android L version, but the s5 mini will. So go for s5 mini only if waterproofing and updates are very important to you.
Guys my dliemma is this, buy the one year old full size S4 or the brand new S5 Mini? I prefer the size of the S5 Mini but for my money the full size S4 is a much better spec, though older, phone. What do you think is best? New lower spec, or older better spec? thanks.
Ok, so the S5 mini manual says it has a notification light (yaaay) but the dumb asses have removed the FM radio. Why Samsung, WHYYYY? Is it too much to ask to include both a notification LED *and* an FM radio?
Forget this load of crap, if you want a premium small handset, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is still the only choice. Another epic fail by Samsung.
The specs are okay exept the chipset.
Snapdragon 400 and adreno 305 is old. Must be snapdragon 600 with 320 to make more poweful :)
And it should have smart features(eg. Multi window) and fm radio :)
advice, 29 Jul 2014Exynos processor runs games at faster frame rates than snapdragon processor.
the GPU in the... moreIt's actually a Mali-400.
I imagine that because they're using this outdated SoC, this phone is quite cheap for them to produce.
Just checked the official GFXBench website and saw two different models of the S5 mini. To those who may not know, GFXBench is a benchmarking application that tests the GPU of a phone. In the benchmarking results of a phone on the website, some specs are also mentioned, and I saw that there are two variants of the S5 mini with one variant (model no. SM-G800H) having a snapdragon 400 chipset with a quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU and an adreno 305 GPU. Another variant with model no. SM-G800Y has an Exynos 3 Quad chipset with the same 1.4 GHz Cortex-A7 quad-core CPU, but has a quad-core Mali-400 MP4 GPU instead of the adreno 305. Performance of this quad-core Mali-400 GPU is mostly as good as adreno 305 according to the benchmark results that I checked. But the mali-400 does not support OpenGL ES 3.0 standard as opposed to the adreno 305 that does.
Really Samsung has gone made.shit,it's still mali400.really their are making full peoples.what the use of features when performance doesn't match.aderno 305 is common now a days.and even aderno 305 it's mobile doesn't performs well,friend's grand 2 goes often hang,heat even if a youtube vedio played,it get too hot that u can burn your hands.is it aderno 305 mobile.the same chipset found in Lumia and xperia and what a great performance they provide.shit samsung.
