Open your eyes to reality
I have used the Micromax Canvas Nitro, and coming from a very optimistic and happy person you might not believe this but the Galaxy S5 mini is not what it seems. Compact phones are supposed to be like compact powerful hatchback cars. At best this phone is like a TATA car – promises a lot and then, all goes phissssssssssss….. waste of money
Stop singing the Samsung song!
Let me hit the main advantages first before I rip apart this phone’s reputation:
Screen is big and bright with great images
Camera has many settings – turning average people into good phone-photographers
What is not good?
The same old problem—Samsung makes plasticky phone. Wish I could find their board of directors and give them a good hammering about using some metal. Why not use some forms of light aluminum strip on premium phones too? After all we do have cars and super-fast engines made from the same materials! Do I recommend the Galaxy S5 mini? No ways. For starters, the phone has 1GB RAM at a price that is foolish in the current scenario. Are we bound to bigger brands? why not entrants like Xiaomi or even Lenovo that are not huge sellers but are at least sensibly priced. Even worse is the supposedly great quad core at the heart of Grand Prime. Yeah, you read about it on review sites but when u lay your hands on the phone, u just won’t feel it!!!
Excellent Android Phone!
This is a very good android phone. It has regional languages already installed in it so even my grandfather does not have any problem using it. I love the cameras of this phone as they click very good quality pictures. Battery backup is also great and it easily lasts for 2 days on one full charge. I will recommend this phone to everyone looking for a budget phone with excellent features.
I bought this phone 2 weeks back and I am very happy with it. It has a great camera that takes amazing photos. Touchscreen is very smooth and wonderful to use. Build quality is like high end phones and it does not feel cheap at all. Even the front camera is very good takes very beautiful pictures and selfies. It does not have the hanging or lagging problem that Samsung phones usually have and runs very smoothly. It already has Android KitKat running and I am eagerly waiting for Lollipop upgrade and give my phone a new look and design. I do not even have to carry 2 phones now as this has dual sim feature and both work together. Samsung has done a good job with this phone.
