Sounds like the ideal replacement for my beloved S3 Mini (I don't like big phones, you see). I wanted the Z1 Compact at first but Sony's design and UI, while pretty, don't do it for me.
Specs sound great for the most part. I felt 4.3' was too little of a size increase compared to S3M's 4', so 4.5' sounds great. Standard HD is perfect for this size- full HD would've been overkill. And it's Samsung, so you're getting very thin bezels: so ergonomics will be excellent as usual.
2 GB of RAM might've been better, but the S4 Mini was pretty fluid with with the 1.5 GB so I guess it's fine- I don't run heavy apps anyway. 8 MP are ok, all I want are some good enough photos.
I just hope this "little" guy sports Snapdragon 800.
Please tell me if S5 Mini will have Notification LED?
S4 Mini did not have a notification LED.
AnonD-257441, 24 Apr 20141080p or more on a smaller than 5inch screen is just bull****!! S5 mini has the perfect screen... moreI suggest you plz do it 4 inches with all new features such as high fixel camer (front and rare) advanced android person ..high cpu .internel memoryand .expandable
Samsung is used to producing big sized phones and some of us that are not big phone fans don't like that. If they plan to release Samsung Mini Phones, they should be mini phones indeed. A 4inch size phone is idea size for Samsung S5 mini. I think 4.5inch is still on the big side for a mini phone. Please make it 4inch for people like us who are more comfortable with small phones.
Now all that remains is the physical dimensions which could make or break it.
If it has a small frame for the those inches and a water resistance as s5 does, this will be the perfect phone for me. I dont like big phones...
it will be very nice if the phone don't exceed 5.1" in its lenth while the display remains 4.5".
Looks like as last a successor to S2, albeit probably bigger :-) By that I mean it's not worse in any spec, except lacking mhl and usb-otg.
Samsung Galaxy Mini S5 should contain 801 Snapdragon chip, which will be really perfect, with a pazavendësueshëm question, because when Sony Xperia Z1 went Compact, Samsung promise that I will bring to the market also with SG S5 mini Qualcomm's latest chip, so I believe that will not disappoint Samsung fans and will contain the following this 5 elementary specs:
1.Display.- 4.5"inch HD - Super AMOLED - CGG 3
2.Memory.- 2 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Snapdragon 801
4.Camera.- 16 - 2 MP
5.Battery.- 2500mAh or more
Samsung Galaxy S5 mini need contain this specs:
1.Display.- 4.5 inch - AUO or IGZO - CGG 3
2.Memory.- 2 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Exynos 5422
Yes, but 10 MP or 8 MP is not a big difference. Unless you want to print your photo's. I recommend buying a digital camera if you think a better is a must.
Moto G vs S5 Mini:
Apart from RAM & Camera almost everything seems to be same. So for this Price should be 20-25k. Ideally around 21-22k it will sell like hot cake. But as per past experience I'm sure Samsung will price it above 25k.
samsung fan, 29 Apr 2014why dont you put in a 10MP camera? the s4 mini also has a 8MP camera. why dont you want to mak... moreAddressing GSM arena won't get Samsung to read your post and implement a last minute change just for your convenience...
why dont you put in a 10MP camera? the s4 mini also has a 8MP camera. why dont you want to make the camera better on the minis to?
Good phone for people who dont want a large phone. Why do we always need over the top specs. Great to have Samsung that give us multiple options.
Why being disappointed about specs? Samsung never said, that S5 Mini would be a high-end phone, it will be normal midrange like S3 Mini and S4 Mini before. It's not like Z1 Compact oder HTC One Mini, which are from specs much better. Samsung knows how to make money, that's why they don't make to much changes to theyr new Galaxy S models, only evolution and now revolution :-(
