All the others have stupid S400 cores, including the HTC One mini 2 and the Galaxy S5 Mini (which are likely to priced above this one).

As for the display, my older phone was the X10, which had around 240ppi. I'm sure the 720p display will be a big boost
so what have u decided to buy finally?

PHONES-
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo (running Stock 4.3)
Samsung Galaxy S2 (running Spirit Rom)

Still no idea.
Been going on like this for four months now. :|
But it'll most likely be this one. Ironic that I'm going to buy a Samsung device after calling it Sam****e, Crap****, Samdung etc for the better part of the last three years. Fate's a bitch.

We are in the same boat. I bashed Samsung due to the stutters and lag touchwiz has BUT who knew man. I am a BIG touchwiz fan now haha. Love Samsung hahaha.

@inadequate & @filthykid - I don't curse but do complain about the Samsung bloatware, but having used devices from so many companies, I feel samsung makes the most complete, stable & functional devices.

I swore that I would never purchase a Exynos device in future and here I'm with another Samsung phone . Every phone has its flaws but somehow Samsung makes me a loyal customer to their brand

You may lose your faith in us, but NEVER in yourselves. From here, the purchasing will be your own.
