"==SAMSUNG GALAXY MINI GT-S5570== The Samsung Galaxy Mini is part of the Galaxy series launched by Samsung. It was released one year ago (mid-February 2011) and it comes in black colour, with a silver or lime green stripe around the edge and in white. I bought my black/steel grey Samsung Galaxy Mini GT-S5570 on June from the Carphone Warehouse with the Pay As You Go deal of the “3” network for £ 100. The device was unlocked and “3” was offering ..." Read review

Samsung Galaxy Mini - First impressions

AdvantagesComparatively low price, easy to use, good for newbies to smartphones

Disadvantagesbattery life? can't transfer text message from old phone, power and volume button locality

"===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 ..." Read review

Samsung Galaxy Mini Fully featured at good price

AdvantagesLots of free apps, Ready to go with email and facebook

Disadvantagesbattery life, voice activated dialling does not work, poor PC software

"I have been using the Samsung Galaxy Mini GTS-5570 for around five months now, I bought it from a Vodafone shop. I looked at various smart phones, I needed one which was a reasonable cost to buy so I could use it on a pay as you go tarriff. The Galaxy Mini is smaller than most smart phones which are similar in size to the iphone, this means its screen is not the widescreen format but a squarer aspect ratio, the camera is fairly basic ..."

A huge phone in a small package.

AdvantagesSmall, low cost, feature packed

DisadvantagesNo flash, doesnt support many high end apps.

"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 ..." Read review

Best Budget Phone Review with images

Advantagessleek, stylish, robust, feels good in the hand, fast

Disadvantageslow battery life, low resolution

"== Samsung Galaxy Mini == === Summary Of The Product === Last year Galaxy released four variants of the same phone, each with a different price tag. The mini was the cheapest of those four. Despite it's name, mini is actually an exaggeration as it's screen size is actually a nice 3.2" touchscreen. Unfortunately this budget bundle only comes with a 3 megapixel photo and video camera which is a bit of a shame when comparing it to it's bigger brothers, ..." Read review

The Mini yet mighty Galaxy.

AdvantagesExtremely similar to an iPhone with great features and a clear camera of good quality.

DisadvantagesPoor battery life and requires a lot of charge (but is outweighed by the advantages).

"...feeling regretful about picking the Samsung Galaxy Ace. It was only due to recommendations that I grudgingly agreed to make the purchase, just waiting for a problem to occur with the handset. I was greeted by a simplistic box, very nicely packaged, with full instructions and manuals inside. The phone itself was also very simplistic, being a small white handset, light enough to carry around in your pocket but heavy enough to not forget it's there. ..." Read review

Samsung Galaxy Mini-It May Be Mini But It Packs A Punch

AdvantagesFits a lot of features into a small phone, compact, not too heavy, looks stylish, good value

DisadvantagesFor just a little more money, other Galaxy models can do more

"I chose the Samsung Galaxy as my next phone, when I purchased it a few months ago, as I thought it would be a good choice for a then first time Galaxy and indeed Android, user. It is one of the more basic Galaxy phones out their, but still comes with many features that are likely to be enough for a lot of people, it can do a lot of what people want from their phones. Let's start with the look of the phone. It follows a nice rounded edge from top to ..." Read review

New Android User?

AdvantagesEasy to use, Nice screen,

DisadvantagesNo flash player, back easily damaged

"For me, this was my first android phone. I found it was perfect as just that. There was no reason to be overwhelmed by all the features. I found it to be a great user experience. It made me familiar with the basic android features at a GREAT price. Applications such as Netflix and Youtube work perfectly, much better than any non android phone I have had in the past. The disadvantage would be the lack of a flash player. But if you're just looking ..." Read review

Don't go by the name mini.

Advantageswide touchscreen, great response from the touchwiz 3.0, wifi, 3G

Disadvantagespoor resolution, no flash, only 3MP camera

"...a chance to check out samsung galaxy mini. First impression: Has a small screen 3'14"! But, once you actually see it, it's very very impressive. Unlike other phones with even 3.2" screens, the screen on this phone looks a tad bigger, thanks to more width. Hence typing is definitely easier on this phone. In fact, swype worked very well on this phone. The resolution on the phone isn't anything to talk about but decent enough. The touch response is excellent, ..." Read review
