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.

Samsung Galaxy Mini (S5570)

 

Earlier this month Mobilicity launched the Samsung Galaxy Mini, which made its debut south of the border a few months ago as the T-Mobile Dart. It's been out in the UK since the spring, but seeing as affordable, smooth Android phones are a rarity up...

Uncluttered, simple operating system ; Affordable pricetag ; Swype preload makes typing a breeze

Mediocre display ; Poor camera ; Hit and miss coverage on Mobilicity

Performance lags were mostly in the form of app load times, rather than any choppy performance. The delays might be a little much if you're used to immediate responsiveness, but I was happy so long as touch input responded steadily. There are a lot of...

Because most of the Galaxy Series phones can only handle up to one or two Android upgrades, Samsung releases new mobile phone models at least every quarter a year. While the Samsung Galaxy 5 I5500 enjoyed its reign as the cheapest Android phone...

Samsung Galaxy Mini

 

With a low price and relatively basic spec list, the Samsung Galaxy Mini GT-S5570 is firmly aimed at first-time smartphone users. There's no denying that the pint-sized handset is cheap and cheerful, but is it any good? We took it through its paces to...

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...
