    “the Galaxy S5 Mini empowers your life, helping take care of your well-being”. Yes absolutely sir. The mobile is so fast and smooth that you’ll be forced to abandon it halfway and take care of yourself (or your metal self). More when the 2nd gen Moto X arrives and you find your friend using it.
    See Samsung cares so much about its customers yet charging on 26k for it.

    How can it compete with nexus 5 ? You just make comparison with only the price factor ?

    Nexus 5 has full Hd screen , 2 gb of ram and a snapdragon 800. It’s like comparing moto g with nexus 5.

    “Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will compete with the likes of LG G3 Beat, Nexus 5, and HTC Desire 816 in the country.”

    Actually, the only 2 phones it will truly compete with are the Nexus 5 and the Galaxy S4 from Samsung’s own stable. And that’s exactly the way they want it, hence the positioning.

    Say I’m a Samsung lover, would I buy this ahead of the S4? Only if I’m a midget little guy with tiny hands and cash to burn. Oh well.
