Firstly, I didn't buy mine through Amazon, I got it SIM free and unlocked from a major UK supermarket chain that starts with a "T" and ends with an "o" and I got the "Charcoal Black" version. As far as I know it is exactly the same European model that is being sold here.

In the box, you get the phone, the battery, quick start guide (very short), USB cable, 3 pin wall plug and in ear headphones (with spare ear buds). The phone is encased in plastic that needs to be taken off and please note that the camera lens on the back of the phone also has a tiny piece of plastic over it that should be taken off. I only realised it was there after watching a review of the phone elsewhere on the Internet and may never have noticed otherwise!

With regards the hardware, there is no point going through all the specifications here as that is available elsewhere. But the screen is great and is a Super AMOLED display at 1280x720 giving a 326ppi pixel density. One very nice feature is that the auto brightness can be controlled to be lower or higher than the default. So if you find that that it is too bright for you (or you want to save more battery life) you can adjust the auto brightness down (or up) by up to 5 "increments".

Storage is 16Gb with about 11.5Gb available out of the box. Micro SD support up to 64Gb and 1.5Gb of RAM. I am using a 32Gb Class 10 UHS-1 card without any issues. I am aware that some other phones don't support such high speed cards but this is working fine.

Camera is very good and was one of the main reasons for buying the phone. I like the Samsung camera app with a great compromise between simplicity and features. The rear camera is 8Mp with LED flash and the front camera is 2.1Mp. You can record video in full HD (1080p).

The S5 mini represents a pinnacle in the mobile phone market for me. After that, there was a slide towards 'Form over Function' with the S6 etc. The S5 mini is a very rare beast: it is waterproof, but it doesn't have rubber plugs that will wear out and lose their seal like the S4 Active etc, nor does it have the sealed exterior with charging points on the body side like the Sony Z1 Compact or Sony Z1 Ultra. (I admit that the latter is a very cute solution - well done Sony! - but one draweback is that you have to then carry their charging dock with you and another is that it can be fiddly to get the phone in the right position in the charging dock).

The S5 mini copies the revolutionary idea of waterproofing the headphone socket (no rubber plug needed) and similarly waterproofs the Micro USB charging/sync socket. Thus it avoids the drawbacks of the Sony models, nor do you have to worry like "did I fully plug the rubber bung in after charging my phone last night?". As long as you put the phone back cover back on securely, on the few occasions a year that you take it off, you don't need to worry about the waterproofing of this phone. Very nice.

Also, I love the size of the S5 Mini. After going through a whole cycle of different phones and phablets of all kinds of sizes, weights and shapes, I've come full circle and back to the original small Apple iphone 4 size! Its the sweet spot. It's small enough to fit in any jacket pocket or jeans pocket, but big enough to still do meaningful activities like add a diary event or navigate on a map. OF COURSE, if you have some horrible 1 hour daily commute and are looking to your phone for entertainment, then this isn't the phone for you, but if you just want a device to make calls and fulfill your basic IT needs whilst mobile then this will fill the spot admirably.

I bought this phone to replace my iPhone 4. I don't have any fixed loyalty to iOS or android and after 4 years i just fancied a change.
My first impressions are that the S5 mini felt very flimsy compared with the 4. However when it was fitted with a silicon case it felt fine.
The phone itself is excellent and was easy to set up all old numbers and data were transferred using Samsung Smart Switch.
In the 4 years since i last owned an Android phone they have really upped their game. The software is very intuitive and easy to use and tasks that were once a pain are now simple !!
Battery life seems to be the norm for a smartphone these days. Ive had 24 hrs one charge with heavy use.
The display is what sets it apart from from the 4. It is brilliant and the colours are vibrant and clear.
Time will tell but my initial thoughts are very positive !!!

Bought this phone for my boyfriend for christmas. So far so good! Well first of all the colour is really nice..he loves it! It's fast, stylish, fab quality and everything you need in a phone. It's also pretty big for a 'mini' and at a decent price, you can't go wrong with this!

I paid over £230 for this 'brand new' White Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini to be delivered to me on the 8th June 2015. Imagine my surprise that while the phone came in a box that skilfully looked sealed with the clear tape, I opened it, charged it a bit to transfer contacts from my old Samsung S2, and discovered the phone had internet data cached from APRIL 16th (!!!) and had a small dent in the metal just above the screen!!!??!! Obviously the phone was NOT brand new. I have lodged a complaint against the seller via Amazon; the only reason I use these no-name companies on the Amazon Marketplace is just that: because they are on the Amazon site. Not impressed and I will be complaining further if there are any issues. I'm absolutely fuming as we all know how much research now has to go into finding and deciding on a phone to suit our needs now a days. I can't be bothered messing around with reinstalling my apps, using the very annoying Samsung Smart Switch app to transfer everything again, so haven't requested a refund just yet - but I'm really annoyed at companies scamming us endlessly when we work so hard for our cash. Why not just sell the phone as 'used' instead of passing off a phone that was being used to watch Game of Thrones back in April, as Brand New? Avoid this seller. As for the phone, I'm sure it would be wonderful if it was actually brand new - nice upgrade from the S2 and S3; camera a bit rubbish (but that could be because I was sent a used phone! Not a new one like I paid for). Sound is: meh, okay (S2 was a bit better); pearlescent white back very nice, overall build quality you expect from Samsung, but ALSO waterproof and dust proof which I love, lightweight, slim, good finish. Good phone intuitive and easy use for those familiar with HTC or Samsung; rubbish marketplace Seller.
