The operating systems in both the handsets are different, for while the former runs on the latest Android v4.4.2 KitKat OS, the latter runs on BlackBerry 10.2 OS. The CPUs of both mobiles differ too. While the Mini version of Galaxy S5 is expected to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor clocked at either 1.4 or 1.5GHz, Z30 operates on Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 T Pro ARM dual-core processor clocked at a speed of 1.7GHz.

Naturally, the pixel density of the Samsung device’s display is higher than the concerned Blackberry mobile (326ppi over 295ppi). Both have 16GB of internal storage. While Blackberry Z30 comes with 2GB of RAM and external storage capacity up to 64GB, S5 Mini comes with 1.5GB RAM and an undisclosed storage capacity of the external expandable card. Both handsets have dual camera settings – the primary rear camera has 8MP sensor and the secondary front faced camera has 2MP sensor. In terms of connectivity, Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini and Blackberry Z30 have similar connectivity options. The final verdict can only be given when the Samsung product is released in the market along with the information on price.
