Summary: this is a basic phone ... admittedly i did not do my homework on this phone but if i had i would not have purchased it solely for the fact that it will not play videos and adobe has discontinued support for the flash player availability..
Summary: I bought this phone last year and I'm going to tell you about my experience with Mini through one year. It was my first smartphone. I like it's big screen, external appearance generally. I use applications that came on the phone and they are practical and useful. All those basic things like clock, google search, calendar were on the phone.
Samsung Galaxy Mini: Cheap smartphone - perfect for first-timers.
12 November 2012
Summary: As a smart phone first-timer, who admittedly was a little scared of the dramatic progression in mobile phone technology, I plunged in and purchased the Samsung Galaxy Mini. The little phone appeared to suit my desire for an advance in technology, while remaining fairly cheap and seemingly easy to use. I am on a sim-free contract (£8 a month) and therefore the purchase price of £70 from Three Mobile appealed to me.
Pros: Cheap, good for smart phone beginners, easy to use and navigate
Cons: Small touchscreen makes qwerty keyboard difficult to use. Some limitations on apps available.
Summary: I have as yet been unable to make an internet connection and when I select contacts I am finding it very difficult to 'slide' through the list without selecting the first name my finger lands on. I am waiting to see my son at Christmas who is an IT wizard then I will be able to tell if it is the mobile or me!! Very pleased with the camera side of the phone.
Summary: i was very reluctant to give up my old phone but it was becoming more frustrating to use, i liked the look of samsung galaxy but it was far too big for me, i like a phone to fit in my jeans pocket and not to be at the bottom of my handbag. i have had the phone for a week now and am much more comfortable using it as i learn more about it (could not end calls properly at first). the samsung galaxy mini is a great intro to smartphones and i am now getting more apps for it.
