And now it's time for an epic comparison compendium: lined up for their mugshots are the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S5 Mini, and iPhone 5s.

It looks like Samsung was going for a Goldilocks appeal with this "just right" sized phone.

The S5 and its mini clone appear to be identical in form, just different in scale. For the number crunchers:

The Galaxy S5 measures in at 142 x 72 x 7.9 mm.

The Galaxy S5 Mini shrinks to 131.1 x 64.8 x 9.1 mm.

Quick subtraction shows that the Mini shaved off 10.9 mm in height and 7.2 mm in width, but added 1.2 mm in thickness. The question remains: does this minor change in size make a major difference in repairability?
