It really baffles me that samsung continue to miss the point of the 'S5 mini' we want a high speced phone with the features of the big one in a smaller form?
whats so hard to get about this concept, if it doesnt have the processor/camera/features of the S5 then ITS NOT A MINI VERSION OF THE S5.....ffs
the size of the s5 is the only reason I havent bought one.
It would be a smart move to do like the Oppo Find 7 mini and use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with a quad core at a speed of 1.6 GHZ (less than the S4 mini by 0.1 GHZ but quad core instead of dual core), if Samsung does that move the S5 mini will be a hit for sure! Personally i would buy it right away...
@Sudhakar Not everyone is looking for a mini tablet. If the weight stays under 120 g and the camera provides good quality, it's mine :-)
Rai, 31 May 2014it is almost the huawei ascend p7 mini, let the price decide the winnerHuawei Ascend P6 is better than P7 mini. The Samsung must be compared with P6
To all :
Samsung Note 2 N7100 is far more better than the rumoured specs of S5 mini. Buy Samsung N7100 itself. Do not waste your money by buying S5 mini.
Any idea when this will be launched. Need to get my kido a phone urgently and would like to buy this one.
It may be short on RAM due the quadcore settings. Samsung may doing wrong saving some budget on not increasing RAM size while this handheld is their flagship small edition.
ken, 25 May 2014Instead of buying this s5 mini, maybe I'll go for xz with 5 inches display, bigger battery, ma... moreTrust me, I have seen it first hand many times, the display of the XZ is truly inferior to almost any other IPS screen out there. XZ has shit viewing angles and mediocre contrast. Also uses very annoying screen protector which cant be removed and scratches and smudges too easilty
Instead of buying this s5 mini, maybe I'll go for xz with 5 inches display, bigger battery, maybe cheaper or same price, s4 pro quad 1.5ghz, classic elegant looks, 16g, and more. That's only my opinion
Alexs, 22 May 2014if doesn't have at least 13mp ois camera doesn't worth buying at all. only improving cpu is nothing.Cpu is downgrade if sd400 quad is used.
What the hell is taking them so long to release/announce this phone?
if doesn't have at least 13mp ois camera doesn't worth buying at all. only improving cpu is nothing.
This is a copy of s4mini, at least add a 13mp camera, samsung is the new apple..
Anonymous, 19 May 2014Is this a joke? It's the same S4 mini. It has the same 1.5 GB RAM, the same 8 MP camera, same ... moreNo not true. Read review about s5 here or on anandtech and trust me s5 is a worthy successor to the s4. It goes beyond the spec list.
I am afraid that once again this mini version is going to disappoint.
The s5 mini will very likely get the mediocre snapdragon 400 processor and not 800.
There might be a variant with the 800 but only a specific market or provider will get it.
The only thing that can redeem it now is if samsung matches the price with that of the moto g. We all know samsung by now, it is safe to say that wont happen.
The sad thing is the s4 mini might actually perform better as it has two krait 300 cores.
This s5 mini will get 4 A7 cores which are significantly slower.
