Believe it or not, 4 to 4.5 – inch smartphones are not completely dead!
Once, these “mini” phones were industry standard, but when Samsung totally and ruthlessly abandoned the Mini line, it looked like the diminutive Android flagships were dead.
The Galaxy S5 Mini seemed so lonely after the cancellation of the Galaxy S6 Mini. But it turned out that Samsung didn’t forgot about it.
Some months ago, there were rumors that there will be a Marshmallow update. Finally, those rumors are proven true today with reports of major software updates in Russia. This was hard to believe at first, but once screenshots emerged, it was settled.
This update brings everything from Now on Tap cards to Doze and App Standby energy efficiency enhancements, advanced app permissions and security improvements.
The 6.0.1 pack will suck roughly 800Mb of your internet and it will refresh your Galaxy S5 Mini. It should feel a lot smoother, rewarding you for you huge patience.
Keep in mind that this is a mid range device that was released nearly two and a half years back. It has extremely similar design with it’s big brother, the Galaxy S5 and somewhat old spec sheet that includes Exynos 3470 CPU, 1.5Gb RAM, 8/2.1Mp cameras and a 2.100mAh battery.
