Got an S5 Mini? Good, you’re in the right place. Here are our five best cases for the S5 Mini!
We begin with one of our most popular cases, the budget FlexiShield Case. The FlexiShield is made from a flexible gel material that adds good scratch and impact protection, without adding significant bulk. The case is also available in a good range of colours, letting you customise the look of your S5 Mini.
The S-View Cover is one of the best premium cases for the S5 Mini. It adds a flip cover that provides protection for the screen, but also includes a clear window that lets the screen shine through. That lets you see notifications and incoming calls without opening the cover, and you can even control your music or track your fitness through the window. The case is available in a stunning range of colour options, each of which match well with the S5 Mini. Finally, because the case replaces the original rear cover, you get a surprisingly slim flip case.
The Encase ArmourDillo is a great budget case that still adds considerable protection to your phone. The ArmourDillo has a thick ridged back just like its namesake, which provides excellent impact protection and rigidity. The case also includes a built-in media stand, which is helpful for watching videos or seeing incoming notifications. The case is also available in some nice bright colours, which is a good way to make your S5 Mini stand out from the crowd.
My favourite case from the lineup is this Case-Mate Slim Tough Case in black and gold. The case’s design provides a good mixture of minimal bulk and strong protection. There’s a stylish textured finish which adds good grip too, making it less likely that you’ll drop this phone or let it slide off a slick surface. The controls are also protected against dust and moisture ingress, with sensible covers over the buttons on both sides.
1. Encase Slimline Horizontal Flip Case - Carbon Fibre
Our top recommended case for the S5 Mini is also the most popular in our store. The Encase Slimline Horizontal Flip Case offers it all – a stylish, modern-looking carbon fibre exterior; complete protection for the screen and sides; a practical built-in media stand. What’s not to like?

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini looks like a strong upgrade over its predecessor, and we’re happy to welcome the new phone into the world with a range of cases and accessories. One of the most promising ranges that we’ve sourced for the S5 Mini comes from Krusell, specifically their Malmo FlipCover Wallet Case and the ColorCover Case. Let’s take a closer look at each.
Krusell Malmo FlipCover Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Wallet Case
The Krussell Malmo FlipCover is an attractive folio-style case for the Galaxy S5 Mini, offering a nice mixture of features. There is an inner card slot for storing important pieces of paper or plastic, a built-in landscape stand and of course the flip cover itself, which provides excellent protection to the front of your S5 Mini. The case is attractive too, coming in a black and blue colour with a nice subtle texture to add grip.
Krusell ColorCover Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Case
The ColorCover is our second case for the S5 Mini from Krusell, and it’s a little more simple. The design is an impact-resistant plastic shell, clipping around the S5 Mini to provide considerable drop and scratch protection while adding the minimum possible bulk and weight. The raised lip around the screen is another important feature, preventing the screen from taking the full force of any impact and preventing costly shatters.
I hope you’ll check out these cases if you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini or you’re planning to pick up the phone.

Yesterday we announced that Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini accessories would be coming to Mobile Fun, and today we are happy to confirm that the new Samsung phone itself will also be available for order here, SIM-free and unlocked. We are the first to announce a UK price for the new handset, which will be £369.00.
Pre-orders can be placed via the link below, which will have the latest pricing and availability information:
The Galaxy S5 Mini looks like a surprisingly strong mid-range device, thanks to an improved set of specifications compared to the previous S4 Mini. The phone includes a quad-core Exynos 3470 processor running at 1.4 GHz, 1.5 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage plus a microSD card slot. The latest connectivity standards are also supported, including 4G LTE internet, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wireless N. A 2100 mAh battery keeps the phone ticking for quite some time.
The display is improved here too, with a new larger 4.5″ size and a reasonable 1280 x 720 resolution. An 8 megapixel rear-facing camera provides good performance in well lit scenes, while a 2.1 megapixel camera on the front allows you to take selfies and make video calls with ease. Samsung’s myriad camera modes also make an appearance here, allowing you to take some clever and unique photos compared to the software on stock Android.
Even some of Samsung’s signature features from the Galaxy S5 have made it to the S5 Mini, including a heart-rate sensor and an IP67 waterproof rating. The waterproof rating is incredibly unusual for a mid-range device, so we’re excited to see it for the S5 Mini.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will be coming soon to Mobile Fun, along with a hearty helping of cases and other accessories. To see more information and our full accessory collection, please visit the product pages and categories linked below:

Samsung announced their latest S mini handset this week, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini. The phone, as with previous versions, is a downsized version of Samsung’s flagship phone which retains its look and special features, while offering a smaller screen and reduced specifications in exchange for a much lower price.
The Galaxy S5 Mini looks relatively stronger than its predecessor, with an Exynos 3470 chipset that includes a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage plus a microSD card slot. The front of the phone is dominated with a 4.5″ 720p IPS display and a 2.1 megapixel selfie cam, while the back of the phone contains an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2100 mAh battery. LTE connectivity, wireless N and Bluetooth 4.0.
For software, we’re looking at Samsung’s usual outfit of Android 4.4 sitting underneath a hearty helping of TouchWiz UI. Many of the S5′s features appear on the Mini version, including IP67 waterproofind and the heartrate sensor.
We’ll have a range of accessories for the pint-sized S5 Mini smartphone, and we’ve already added quite a few bespoke Galaxy S5 Mini cases. These include models from Case-Mate, including the Barely There, Slim Folio and Slim Tough Case; the Toughguard Case; and Flexishield cases in four colours.
In terms of accessories, you’ll find the full assortment. We have a range of essential universal accessories that’ll fit the S5 Mini, including microSD cards for expanding your storage options, car chargers and holders for those road trips and desk stands for keeping an eye on notifications. Finally, we’ve added a couple of screen protecting solutions for the S5 Mini, in order to keep the phone’s display looking good for longer.

Earlier this week we posted about some cases for the upcoming (yet unannounced) Galaxy S5 Mini, and now we’ve moved on to the phone itself. We’ll be offering the phone sim-free and unlocked, a nice complement to our range of Galaxy S5 Mini accessories. For more information on the phone, read on!
The Galaxy S5 Mini follows a similar story as we’ve seen with previous Mini phones. It looks like its bigger brother, the Galaxy S5, but includes some toned-down specifications in order to achieve a vastly lower price.
We’re expecting the S5 Mini to ship with a new quad-core Exynos processor and 16 GB of internal memory (which is double that of last year’s Mini). As with most other Galaxy phones, you’ll also enjoy a microSD card slot that can allow you to add up to 64 GB of additional storage. The phone also includes a 8-megapixel rear camera and a 4.5″ qHD Super AMOLED display running at 1280 x 720 resolution. 4G LTE connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0 complete the picture. These specifications are very close to last year’s flagship Galaxy S4.
In fact, the Galaxy S5 Mini is better than the leading-edge Galaxy S4 from last year in some ways. The S5 Mini has a waterproof enclosure with an IP67 rating, as well as an integrated fingerprint scanner that allows you to unlock your phone with a swipe – as well as make PayPal and Play Store payments!
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini will be offered in three colours – Black, Blue and White. For more information or to register your interest, please visit the product pages linked below. You can also see our full range of cases and accessories via the corresponding links.
