Samsung Galaxy mini 2 review: Little by little

 

Whenever a Galaxy S phone thinks "Boy, it feels good at the top", there's always someone down below to say "You're welcome". Samsung most certainly know who to thank. It was smartphones like the Galaxy Ace and the Galaxy mini that made...

Quad-Band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 7.2 Mbps HSDPA ; 3.27" 256K-color HVGA TFT touchscreen ; ARMv6 800MHz processor, 512MB RAM ; Android OS v2.3 (Gingerbread) with TouchWiz v3.0 UI ; 4GB internal storage, hot-swappable MicroSD slot ; 3.15 MP...

Poor display quality ; Fixed-focus camera, no flash ; No secondary video-call camera ; Video recording maxes out at VGA @ 25fps ; Sub-par ARMv6 CPU limits performance and app selection

The original Samsung Mini, released almost exactly a year prior to the mini 2, had very few points in its favor and the level of equipment wasn't among them. But it was cheap and it had Android. This made it a good option for anyone looking to see what...

Samsung Galaxy mini 2 Review

 

Android smartphones come in all shapes and sizes, including cute and cuddly, as the case is with the Samsung Galaxy mini 2. This petite-sized entry-level device is the successor to last year's Galaxy mini, and as such, it comes with improvements both...

Small and pocket-friendly ; Fluid performance

Unjustified launch price ; Android 2.3 Gingerbread ; Earpiece could be better

After giving it a thorough examination we can conclude that the Samsung Galaxy mini 2 is a very respectable entry-level Android smartphone. It is suitable primarily for those users willing to have a taste of the smartphone experience without spending...

The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 showed up at MWC 2012 in February and slides in at the lower end of Samsung's range, but it's not the firm's bargain basement off

Budget handset, but that's not a bad thing

Sturdy build ; microSD port ; Removable battery ; Pretty nippy

No ICS ; Hard to grip ; Poor camera

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 GT-S6500

 

The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 is one of the cheapest phones in Samsung's Galaxy range.

Good battery life, Pocket-friendly size, microSD card slot

Camera could be better, Screen isn't great, Better Android phones are available for the same price

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2

 

Mini by name and indeed mini be nature.
