If Minis are supposed to be a lesser, cheaper model of the bigger and superior predecessors, then the Samsung Galaxy Mini is indeed not so much a Mini. The handset indeed inherits merits from many greater brothers, yet the gadget itself is self-sufficient enough to appeal to many. Let’s take a closer look at it!
Inside the box you can find: a Samsung Galaxy Mini phone, of course, a battery, a charger, a handsfree, as well as a user’s guide.
The Samsung Galaxy mini is wrapped entirely in plastic. The 3.1-inch capacitive touchscreen has really perfect registration. Yet the resolution of 240 x 320 pixels happens to be inadequate for good viewing angles hence a decent looking experience. The keys located below are helpful enough for convenient navigation and easy to hit as well.
With its light weight and all-plastic build, you may find the device feel like a toy. Yet it doesn’t look cheap at all particularly when it comes with the dotted pattern on its back. The construction is a casual yet comfortable one which suits this entry-level smartphone a lot.
At the back harbours the fixedfocus 3.15-megapixel camera with maximum resolution 2048 x 1536 pixels. Certainly not the best available in today’s market but good enough for a well-budgeted handset.
On the top there are the 3.5 mm headphone jack and the micro USB port which is protected by a plastic flap.
All in all, as an entry level smartphone, Samsung Galaxy Mini is proved to be much more compact than we envisaged. With all the device inherits from its great brothers, it is doubtlessly an out-standing choice in the lower-end Andriod segment.
