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...

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...

Samsung Mini 2


Great little phone, It does everything that I need, and also I can read the larger text which I couldn't do with my Nokia Luma 800 which I got 3 months ago and had to give away.

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 review


The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 is a pocket sized fun machine from Samsung. Can it compete with the Sony Xperia U and HTC One V?

Palm size ; Rugged body

Poor screen ; High price ; Too similar to the original

It’s a struggle to see why the fun sized smartphone market exists when larger smartphones with better cameras, processors and add-on freebies like HTC’s 25GB DropBox subscription sit in the same (or much lower) price bracket.

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 review


The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 slides in at the lower end of Samsung's range, but it's not the firm's bargain basement offering.

Sturdy build ; microSD port ; Removable battery ; Pretty nippy

No ICS ; Hard to grip ; Poor camera

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2


Mini by name and indeed mini be nature.

, finding it a little too small and basic. The Samsung Galaxy Ace 2, though has a slightly larger, higher resolution screen, 200Mhz faster processor (800MHz vs 600MHz), and more internal storage. It's still not likely to be a powerhouse but it could be...

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 hands-on


The Galaxy Mini 2 is unlikely to offer much in terms of hardware, but this compact and colourful Android phone is likely be very cheap, so it could prove alluring if the price is low enough. I'll be looking for decent build quality when I go hands-on.

Increased screen resolution ; Compact ; Colourful

Not very powerful ; Camera will probably be very limited

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2


The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 is an affordable smartphone with multimedia, web browsing and social networking tools at its heart. It has a 3.27-inch display with a 320 x 480 resolution, has an 800MHz processor, and runs the Android Gingerbread operating...

Those looking for an affordable phone that does most of the basics right would do well to give the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 a look-in, however there are better, more powerful alternatives out there. Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 is tagged with Samsung, Galaxy...
