Excerpt: "I avoided the Samsung Galaxy Mini when I went shopping for a new mobile phone because I'd heard that it had bad screen, was low end because it was cheaply made and that it was an awful phone, amongst other things. But after four days of shopping and browsing and generally pulling out my hair I asked a helpful assistant in my local T-Mobile store to recommend some handsets. She pushed a chubby looking little handset across with a bright screen and ...
Pros: Small, low cost, feature packed
Cons: No flash, doesnt support many high end apps .
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Mini is a good little phone if you do not want, or cannot afford the latest all singing all dancing smart phones. Sure the Galaxy S2 and 3 are much better phones but they are not everyone's cup of tea. The mini has a good touch screen which doesn't lag too much and does the job it's asked. While the camera is only 3 mega pixels it still takes decent pictures although don't expect much if you are a distance away from your subject.
Fabulous first android phone, however, a few little issues.. ...

Summary: I've had this phone now for around four months and can confidently say I've experienced most of its positives and negatives. After seeing my partner getting on well with this phone I purchased it. This was my first android phone and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. My previous phones are like bricks compared to this beauty. It has a sleek and lightweight body and has a touchscreen that is very receptive.
Pros: Great Navigation app, Conversation-style messaging, Many applications on play store, Good internet.
Cons: Low battery life, Freezes often, poor camera quality.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Mini is an amazing phone that you can get for a very cheap price. It has Wi-Fi, an 3MP camera and media player etc. It is easy to use, it's a simple phone that will keep you and your budget happy.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Mini is a smartphone released in the early part of 2011. Its features include 3G, touchscreen, 3MP in built camera, GPS as well as full access to the android market. It is a cheap smartphone compared to many out there which is great for those who want something neat for a small price. So how good is it? I got mine in summer 2011 on a contract with a large supermarket company.
Summary: This is the worst phone I have ever owned. Dreadful. The touch screen locks during calls. It's difficult to end calls, The buttons on the side are too easy to accidentally press during calls - for example I have caught the buttons and reduced the ring volume to zero and missed important calls. The swype text input method is absolutely dreadful - once you have activated it you try deactivating it - it's a nightmare trying to find the right controls.
Pros: Screen size is fair.
Cons: Far too easy to accidentally press the volume control and off buttons when making calls. Screen locks up during calls. Batterly life is abysmal.
Summary: The screen locks during calls, the touch screen is awful, they have placed buttons on the side which you cannot help accidentally pressing during calls, the screen back-light goes off far too quick. I'm an ex IT Manager and well used to modern technology but this phone is absolute rubbish. I protest in the strongest possible language about the sheer impracticality of the design.
Summary: I haven't even had this phone for a week yet and am lovin it! Great value with heaps of super apps, not that I use them all but things like Facebook, Google, Hotmail, brilliant! Only bad thing is battery - needs recharged too often, but then that could be because I use it so much!
Excerpt: "===Introduction=== As a complete newcomer to smartphones, apart from the occasional play on others’ devices, I wanted something cheap and fairly basic. Therefore my review is intended to tell you what you can expect to experience when turning on the phone and exploring the functions for the first time, as I have created this review whilst doing so myself. I bought this phone for £91.75 in July 2012, and I was gutted to see that it was previously ...
Pros: Comparatively low price, easy to use, good for newbies to smartphones
Cons: battery life? can't transfer text message from old phone, power and volume button locality
