Samsung Galaxy S5 mini review: Big enough

 

With two Galaxy S minis under its belt, Samsung has set off on a quest for a third, hopefully more successful version of its current flagship. But the rules have changed and Samsung has finally stopped ignoring this fact. While Sony flipped the mini...

Optional Dual SIM version available ; LTE connectivity ; 4.5" 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display with 326 ppi ; Android OS v4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz UI ; Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A7 processor, Exynos 3 Quad 3470 chipset, Mali-400MP4 GPU, 1.5GB of RAM ;...

Uncompetitive price at launch ; No TV-Out option (MHL is not supported) ; Only the LTE variant has NFC ; Lacks in-call noise-cancellation

On its own, the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is a merely a good midrange smartphone. Next to it's bigger sibling - it's probably Samsung's best mini to date. It retains what makes the bigger flagship desirable and cleverly mimics its superb performance so...

Samsung GALAXY S5 Mini ( black)

 

Its 4.5-inch screen has a 720p resolution, it has a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera, 4G LTE, fingerprint and heart-rate sensors and runs the older Android 4.4.2 KitKat software. The S5 meanwhile, has a 2.3GHz quad-core chip, a full HD...

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini has the same rubberised design as its full-size brother, it's waterproof, with a vivid screen and decent camera.

Like all of Samsung's previous smaller flagships, the S5 Mini seriously waters down the specs of the top-end phone, meaning it's just a mid-range phone with a flagship name and high price. The plastic design feels far less luxurious than the metal HTC...

If you've been hoping for a fully-fledged flagship phone with all the bells and whistles of the the other elite mobiles just in a more compact size, prepare to be disappointed. The Galaxy S5 Mini matches the regular S5 in name and looks, but not in...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini is a smaller version of the top-selling Galaxy S5. Slim and lightweight, it's an excellent Android phone, but over-priced.

The S5 Mini isn't a bad phone by any means. It's better than the S4 Mini. But it's a lot more expensive too. We feel it's over-priced.

Review do Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini: o melhor Mini até agora!

 

Apesar do fato de que a Samsung certamente ouvirá as mesmas críticas que vieram com as suas versões Mini anteriores (hardware fraco, nome enganoso, promessas não cumpridas, etc.), nós praticamente não encontramos vulnerabilidades com o S5 Mini. O...

Serviços iguais aos do S5, Recursos de software, Interface de usuário e processamento

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini review

 

Another year, another Samsung Mini — is this one any better? Even with the arrival of smaller flagship-level handsets like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, "mini" Android smartphones typically occupy the mid-range space. This was the case with last year's...

The Sprint Vital is an excellent choice given its wallet-friendly $100 pricetag. Does that mean it's the best bang for your buck? Not exactly. There are a handful of great options on Sprint's shelves for those on a tight budget, but all told, the...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini review: a mini worthy of the flagship name

 

Lets be honest: Samsung's historical attempts at mini flagship devices have been pretty miserable. In our Galaxy S5 Mini review, we'll show you how Samsung has improved upon the instantly forgettable Galaxy S3 Mini and S4 Mini to produce a slimmed down...

Same look and feel as the S5 ; Same flagship software features and experience ; Great display ; Solid camera and battery

Slower performance than S5 ; Relatively high price

The Galaxy S5 Mini manages to achieve something its predecessors could not: it stands up as being worthy of the flagship name. Of course, you won't get the same top-shelf specs or camera resolution as the Galaxy S5, but as far as styling, experience...
