There is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Mini is great value for money. It has all the features of a high end smartphone as it is running Android 2.2. Froyo but just in a smaller package and from £89.99 on Pay as You Go. I see this as one of the...

The Samsung Galaxy Mini is a small device with a big list of features. It does a good job and offers a fun user experience. It's just a shame that the low-res screen is such a disappointment. The slow chip is really not a problem, and the handset...

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...

Samsung is the only manufacturer that can get away with launching variants of one particular device in a series and pricing them to suit different budgets, as it did five years ago with the D500 and its variants the G600 and D900. Now the Koreans are...

The Samsung Galaxy Mini is an average phone with an ok camera and questionable call quality. When you consider that you can pick up the Samsung Galaxy Ace (a better phone) on similarly priced contracts it’s difficult to recommend. That said, the...

Asides from its low-res screen and measly camera, it’s hard to criticize the super-cheap Samsung Galaxy mini. It’s a great looking handset, and if green is your colour, it’s right up your street. We have to agree with Samsung on this...

The most important thing about a phone is its calling quality and we found the output of the microphone on the GALAXY mini clean and loud enough as our callers reported hearing us with the natural tone of our voice. The small low-res screen...
