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