Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini

 

The smaller S5 is good, but we want more

Bright, vibrant screen, Very capable 8-megapixel camera, Great battery life

Plastic back feels cheaper than on S5, Some missing TouchWiz features

Samsung Galaxy S5 mini review: Mini not mighty

 

Samsung was among the pioneers in creating mini versions of flagship phones. Now the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, representing the handset's third generation, is here to cram more features than ever into the smaller smartphone form. The Samsung Galaxy S5...

Waterproof design, bright and colourful screen, enough speed and good battery life

Plasticky build quality, some gimmicky extras, middling screen resolution

The Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is a respectable handset that offers ample speed, a bright and colorful screen and good battery life. What lets it down is the build quality, which is chunky and plastic.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini review

 

The Galaxy S5 gets blasted with the shrink ray

Good battery life ; Dazzling OLED display contrast ; Super-convenient waterproofing

CPU not super-powered ; Screen a mite less sharp than the S5 ; A bit pricey

This isn't just a small Galaxy S5, it’s a cut-down one, but it still offers a fairly top-notch phone experience

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini review

 

The Galaxy S5 gets shrunk, but smaller isn't always better

Water and dust resistant ; Decent battery life ; Screen is bright and colourful

Dodgy fingerprint scanner ; Interface isn't the quickest ; Plastic body feels cheap

The S5 Mini is a solid smartphone with an impressive range of features borrowed from its bigger brother, but it fails to really impress at what is now a highly competitive price point.

Galaxy S5 Mini price must drop if it hopes to compete - Galaxy S5 Mini video review

 

The S5 mini uses the same water- and dustproof design as the Galaxy S5, which costs an extra £25 SIM-free, but its smaller 4.5in screen means it's more comfortable in the hand.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini review: Flagship stylings with watered-down specs

 

Samsung's Galaxy S5 Mini matches the full-size S5 in name and looks, but its specs are disappointing for the price.

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 vs Samsung Galaxy Alpha comparison review

 

The Galaxy Alpha, on the other hand, seems to be Samsung's stab at the iPhone 5s (or maybe the upcoming iPhone 6), with a metal frame around the edge. The rear cover of the Alpha is still plastic, though.

Overall, the Galaxy S5 mini and Galaxy Alpha are reasonably evenly matched smartphones from Samsung. With just 0.2in difference between the screen size, your decision between the two will come down to metal vs plastic when it comes to design. Of...
