Summary: I bought this for my wife who resisted getting a smartphone and so far it's worked out perfectly. The Mini 2 is the perfect size for people that don't want one of those extra large phones these days, but it still is very easy to operate and maintains full functionality of all the phone with the larger screen size. Because of the smaller size it has an excellent battery life, so you can use it all day and not have to run to the nearest outlet.
Summary: I love this phone. For me it is the perfect phone. It is just the right size. It feels good in your hands. Has the perfect weight and feels generally well made. It is small enough to slip in your pocket and not feel bulky. I am not one who texts or spends loads of time searching the internet on my phone. I use it to make phone calls! And it does this well.
Definitely unlocked; Australian plug, but adapter included

Summary: Phone is indeed new and also works well in Europe. The plug on the charger is the slanted Australian version, but seller includes an adapter for US outlets, as well as USB cable. If you are looking for a smaller size smartphone that is more portable, without being locked into a contract, this is a solid choice. UPDATE: After problems with the adapter, seller promptly sent TWO replacements. This is a reliable company. Satisfied with the service.
Excerpt: Decent smartphone. Touch screen responsive. Wifi fast. Gps with google map with installed text to speech working outstanding. Setup really easy. The keyboard is a little difficult to use -- For the price, features very good deal. The Samsung 5830 probably will be better, but I am happy with this phone's feature and especially price.
Excerpt: Actually, it might just be me being lucky, and you might not believe what I’m about to write, but this phone fell from the 2nd floor and also splashed into a swimming pool (on my wedding day!) and it still works perfectly…but don’t try this at home, I don’t think Samsung warranty will work against water dropping and downstairs falling!
Summary: UPDATE 3: I would buy the same Samsung S6500D. This is in fact the international version that works also in Europe (I travel frequently). It has everything you need from a smartphone: fast GPS; excelent Wi-Fi; Bluetooth; Tethering (allows you to share your 3G net); good signal reception; it is small enough to fit in your pocket but with enough screen to read emails; (not so good handling webpages). I love it.
