Our Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Review

Pay as you go or pay monthly?

Despite the fact that the S5 Mini was released in 2014, the majority of mobile operators still only offer this phone with a pay monthly contract. Furthermore, the wealth of online features on offer means you’ll be better suited using this phone with pay monthly anyway, as pay as you go rarely allows for heavy 4G use without getting expensive in the long term. 

Display 

The 4.5 inch display on the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini might be small, but it packs a punch. The HD Super AMOLED technology ensures that you’ll always get a stunning viewing experience. Colours and blacks are enhanced to be the brightest they can be, making all content you view on your phone come to life with amazing crispness and detail. 

The S5 Mini’s advanced technology means it’s fantastic for videos. Whether you’re sitting back to watch something on YouTube, Netflix or even footage you’ve recorded yourself, the S5 Mini always gives you the best video quality. Plus, the smaller frame means it’s easier to use than the larger standard version, giving you reach for everything you need to tap with just one hand. 

Camera

The camera on the 5S Mini offers 8 megapixels to play with as well a number of ways to enhance the quality of your photos. Samsung’s mobile camera is one of the fastest on the market, allowing you to take photos in an instant with just a double tap of the home button. As  well as this, users can focus on targets in just a second wherever they are in the frame, meaning you’ll never be left with blurry photos. 

The S5 Mini also gives users the opportunity to record gorgeous HD video that captures the moment in the best way possible. This allows the S5 Mini to be used as the ultimate handy-cam - blending smartphone technology with a video recorder that can be used instantly. 

Design

One of the biggest draws of the S5 Mini is its smaller size when compared to the standard model. With smartphones getting bigger and bigger, many users might feel that they want a smaller device that acts more like a phone than a tablet. With a 4.5 inch display, the S5 Mini is firmly in the ‘phone’ camp, allowing users to tuck it away in pockets or bags easily. 

Outside of the small size, the design of the S5 Mini is just as sleek and modern as the standard S5. The mixture of glass and metal gives it a premium feel, whilst also being something you can fit in the hand. The device is also water-resistant, giving it an extra layer of durability. This means you won’t have to worry about the occasional rain shower or spilt drink, with dust and sand also being unable to penetrate the phone. 

Performance

With Android 4.4 Kitkat installed from the box, you’ll be able to enjoy the most popular mobile operating system in the world. Android is a completely open system, giving you freedom to use your phone for whatever you want and fill it with as much media as you can carry. The 1.4GHz quad core processor also ensures that you’ll get the fastest and smoothest performance out of your phone. When you start using the Galaxy S5 Mini, you’ll be amazed how a phone this small can pack in so much technology. 

Battery life is another area where the S5 Mini excels. With 21 hours of talk time and just 10% of battery life lasting 24 hours when on standby, the S5 is a phone that you’ll never have to charge twice in a day. If you’re someone who uses their phone constantly throughout the day, the S5 Mini is the ideal choice. 

What’s it like for social media?

All Android smartphones have access to the Google Play Store. Using this, you’ll be able to download companion apps for all your favourite social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, Vine, Instagram and more. Andorid often has the best version of these apps, as they appear clearer on the screen and use up less battery life due to being purer versions of the websites. The Facebook app for iOS, for example, wraps the website in its own software, causing extra battery life to be used, even when the app is not open. 

What’s it like for games and apps?

For games and apps, the S5 Mini does a competent job, but not as good as the standard version. Whilst the phone will run games quickly and smoothly, the smaller screen gives you a smaller view on the action, something that the standard S5 mends. If you’re serious about gaming on your phone and consider it a top priority when shopping around, the S5 or one of the newer, larger Galaxy models might be a better option. That said, you’ll still be able to download all the same games with the Mini via the Google Play Store. 

What We Think 

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini is one of the best mini smartphones you can buy. More portable than the standard S5 but still just as powerful, the Mini gives you an uncompromised Galaxy experience, but one that you can fit easily in your pocket. Plus, with it being a few generations behind now, it’s cheaper than a lot of phones out there.
