Samsung Galaxy Mini Review: In Depth
5 December 2013
Conclusion: The Samsung Galaxy Mini is an average phone with an ok camera and questionable call quality. When you consider that you can pick up the Samsung Galaxy Ace (a better phone) on similarly priced contracts it’s difficult to recommend. That said, the Galaxy Mini is cheaper by about £100 on pay-as-you-go, so you could always invest in a Galaxy Mini as a back up/second phone.
Conclusion: The screen may be bad quality, the processor may be barely able to power the phone and it may be running a software version from last year, but all of this comes together into one of the best entry level handsets I have ever used. When you look into whether you are going to purchase, do not look at the specs, they are irrelevant, look into what you are getting for the money you are spending.
Summary: Samsung Galaxy Mini is the cheapest one and sports the lowest specs you can find in an Android smartphone. It has a 3.2 inch display, 600 MHz processor and a 3 MP camera. It comes with Android 2.2 Froyo and is one of the best budget Android smartphone options in 2011. The Samsung Galaxy mini is cheap, cheerful and proud of it. Its low-resolution screen and relatively sluggish processor may not concern you too much if you’re after a feature-packed phone at a low price.
Pros: Very affordable, Stutter-free navigation in the menus
Cons: Low-res screen makes it difficult to read text, Below average fixed-focus camera, terrible camcorder, Adobe Flash is a no-go
Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 Review: Right on the mini
16 March 2011
Conclusion: So, did the Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 give its best? It most certainly did but it would be no surprise if you failed to notice. You see, we can go on and on about value for money and delivering results within budget. But that won’t be telling the whole story about a phone like the Galaxy Mini. It all depends on where you’re coming from. You think the Galaxy Mini is too cheap to notice? Fair enough. But consider the difference it can make for first-time smartphone users.
Cons: Low screen resolution limits choice of apps, Fixed focus camera, No secondary video-call camera, No flash, no dedicated camera key, Poor video recording QVGA @ 15fps
Excerpt: Samsung’s Galaxy family has been breeding like wild fire in recent months. The latest addition to the Android-focused fam’ is the Galaxy Mini, a pared down, budget blower that aims to offer the full-on Google experience without a recession-busting price tag. But just how does this cell stack up? And is it worth plumping for over the brilliant HTC Wildfire S ?
Conclusion: The multimedia features of the handset are average. If you are expecting something like 5 MP camera, then you will be disappointed. Galaxy Mini loads a 3.15 mega pixel camera with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. You can record videos at QVGA @15 fps. No secondary camera is available in the handset. Apart from the camera, the other multimedia features of the mobile phone include the regular media player.
Pros: Affordable, 3G, WiFi, 32GB memory
Cons: QVGA display- not good enough for Android, No secondary camera
Summary: The screen may be bad quality, the processor may be barely able to power the phone and it may be running a software version from last year, but all of this comes together into one of the best entry level handsets I have ever used. When you look into whether you are going to purchase, do not look at the specs, they are irrelevant, look into what you are getting for the money you are spending.
