Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini – Small in Size, Big in Performance

Despite being smaller and more compact, the Samsung Galaxy 5 Mini manages to bring over some of its bigger brother’s headline hardware and software; making it a powerful device nonetheless.

Sleek Design Retained

Being smaller than its bigger brother did not mean that the S5 Mini’s slick looks were compromised in any way – the only main difference being their sizes. Other than that, the S5 Mini is almost indistinguishable from its bigger brethren, being an exact replica of the S5 in terms of the outlook. The S5 Mini has the same soft-touch, pimpled polycarbonate rear panel that provides better grip and the plastic rim with a metallic chrome effect. Similar to the S5, the physical home button is on the front and the same square camera unit is on the rear, with the heart rate sensor lying beneath. The physically smaller size of the S5 Mini makes it far more comfortable to be used in one hand as the thumb is able to reach all areas of the screen easily.

Bright and Vivid Screen

The S5 Mini features a 4.5-inch screen with a 1280 x 720 resolution and a SUPER AMOLED display that makes the colours pop and the display is as immersive as the S5’s. Hence, you can watch your favourite videos and films on your S5 Mini with super clarity and detail. Even if you are outdoors, the screen remains bright and text is still crisp, meaning that the visibility is not affected, even under sunlight. Moreover, to provide you with more options to change the display settings for different conditions, the Mini S5 also comes equipped with the same display settings as on the S5. You have a choice of standard, dynamic, professional photo, cinema, and adapt display modes to choose from.

Detachable Battery with Impressive Battery Life

Although the S5 Mini has a smaller battery compared to its close rivals (at only 2100mAh), it does boast impressive battery life. With moderate usage – web browsing, couple of hours of Spotify playbacks, an hour of gaming, and the usual calls, text and social media action – you can get a full day’s usage without much problem. The detachable battery also enables you to replace an empty battery with a fully-charged one, which is particularly useful if you are on-the-go with no reliable power source to recharge your battery.

Competent Camera for Vivid Photos

The S5 Mini features a built-in 8MP camera and a 2.1MP front camera, which are relatively competent cameras. With the S5 Mini, you are able to capture commendable shots without encountering any of the common aberrations that are associated with low-quality sensors, such as washed-out colours or visible noise. The rear camera is able to shoot photos with balanced exposure and plenty of details, resulting in decent-looking photos that will still impress your social media followers.
