It’s a schoolyard battle between the two younger brothers today. This morning Samsung introduced the Galaxy S5 mini, the smaller version of its flagship Android smartphone, and it will likely slowly replace the Galaxy S4 mini as it rolls out around the world, starting in Russia this month.
We already compared the Galaxy S5 mini to the Galaxy S5, but how does this year’s mini model stack up to the Galaxy S4 mini? We’re glad you asked. Some of the major differences include the addition of a heart rate monitor and a fingerprint reader, but it’s also IP67 resistant against water and dust, which means you won’t have to worry about an accidental dunk in the toilet.
As for the specs? We’ll make it easy for you. Here are the two devices side-by-side:
