Introduction
We’ve had some time to play with Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone, and it seems to have shrunk in the wash. Wait, scratch that—we’re actually tearing down the brand-new Galaxy S5 Mini, a smaller, lighter, and less powerful version of the S5. Call it Samsung's flag''boat'' smartphone.
To beat the launch-day crowd, we got our S5 Mini direct from motherMother Russia. We'll be sure to point out any special adaptations this phone needs to speak Russian.
