Samsung Galaxy Mini - Pocket-lint

 

It may not be the best phone in the world, and call quality isn't brilliant but its nicely designed and good for those on a budget

Compact, slick design, decent size screen, responsive display, cheap

Low resolution screen, mediocre call quality

The Samsung Galaxy Mini is pitched at a certain market - mainly those who want a modest smartphone that they don't have to spend too much of their hard-earned cash on. Going by that premise - the phone delivers what it promises. It's very affordable...

Samsung Galaxy mini GT-S5570 review

 

At less than a quarter of the asking price of the best Android smartphones on the market, it would be ridiculous of us to criticise the Samsung for its relative shortcomings. That the screen is noticeably smaller at 3.14in, and infuriatingly low-res in...

It's incredibly cheap at £101, but the Samsung Galaxy mini makes several compromises to achieve such a low price tag. Most noticeable is the horribly low-resolution screen, second is the paltry 3Mp camera with no flash or autofocus, and third is an...

Samsung Galaxy Mini (GT-S5570) Review

 

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...

Samsung Galaxy Mini review

 

Update [August 2013]: The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini is the latest mini, budget Android smartphone from Samsung. Check out our review right here.

Attractive price, very accessible side mounted microSD card slot, up to seven home screens

Low resolution screen, average to poor camera, slow processor

Small and neat, but let down by a low resolution screen and absence of Flash support

Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 Review: Right on the mini

 

Minis are supposed to be the cheaper, stripped down version of the bigger and superior gadgets. There's a long list of bigger and superior siblings for the Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 to choose from but it has its own two feet to stand on.

Quad-Band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA ; 3.14” 256K-color QVGA TFT touchscreen ; ARMv6 600MHz processor, 384MB RAM ; Android OS v2.2 (Froyo) with TouchWiz v3.0 UI ; 160MB internal storage, hot-swappable MicroSD slot, 2GB card included...

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

Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 Preview: First Look

 

Mini phones are a hot commodity. They are desirable and fill a market gap of small, easy-to-carry devices, which can lift mountains despite their size. Now Samsung wants to have a go at that market with the Galaxy Mini S5570.
