Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is a complete Android cellphone launched many years ago, packing a very fast 1400 MHz Quad-Core processing unit, a medium 4.5" capacitive touch-screen, and two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 2.1 megapixels front-facing camera. That's all? Not at all, it's only the beginning of this extreme review.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is powered by a Exynos 3 Quad 3470 chip, including a high speed 1400 megahertz Quad-Core CPU and a great 1,5 GB RAM. Collaborating with graphic rendering, it also has an ARM Mali-400 MP4 GPU ticking at 266 MHz. A nice advantage of this phone is its quite big 16 GB internal storage memory and an SD memory card expansion slot, allowing you to install hundreds of applications and games without any problem.

The S5 mini is much lighter than what you would expect from a cellphone like this. This phone is quite a compact cellphone, given that it features a 4.5" screen and it has just 5.16" long. This cellphone has a wonderful design, with a thickness of just 0.36". This cellphone is available in a variety of color options: black, blue, white and gold.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 mini features two cameras, an 8 megapixels back side camera and a 2.1 MP front facing camera. It also shoots Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 30 fps. This phone also counts with multiple interesting features: flash, auto-focus, fast burst mode, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, face detection shooting and geo tagging.

Samsung designed this cellphone with a high-tech 4.5-inches screen, and a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, making everything look absolutely great. Its screen uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This cellphone counts with an amazing 2100 mAh Li-Ion battery, enough to provide the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini with an incredibly long battery duration.

The S5 mini counts with wifi capability (and it can share it with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed connection type and also HSPA+ connection type, a slower 4G network or 3G fast data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This device works with a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers.

This phone also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), Fingerprint Reader, GPS Navigation, Infrared Port and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is a great choice considering it's an awesome cellphone and it costs only 180 dollars. This device is probably very appropiate for you if you will use this device mostly for social networks and internet browsing, will use it for gaming, want a work cellphone or you love taking photographs.
