First Phone: The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini
The 4.5-inch Mini version of the fifth-gen Galaxy flagship, closely mimicking the IP67-certified physical design, its sensor set (including fingerprint and heart rate monitors) and network capability (LTE Cat4). Samsung also retained the Ultra Power-saving mode that could extend up-time for its slightly lower 2100mAh battery capacity. It runs on a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, and halves the S5īs main camera resolution (16-mp) to 8-megapixel, with a nearly identical 2.1-megapixel camera up front.
