Samsung Galaxy Mini
Advantages: cheap, fast, small and light
Disadvantages: bad photo quality, poor battery life, not as impressive as other smart phones!
After my ancient brick of a mobile fell down a lift (don't ask) I decided it was finally time to venture into the smart phone territory. However as a student, who always relies on emailing rather than texting and calling sadly, I didn't fancy spending too much on a new phone. So I was offered a contract where I'd get this Samsung Galaxy Mini thrown in for free (I think normally it costs around £110-145). If you're looking for a cheap smart phone, then consider this.
I'm quite simple and really only want a phone to text and call, so let's begin with this. For some absurd reason I would get the same texts over and over again (this didn't happen with the same sim card in other phones), this was a little unsettling, especially the first night I had the phone and I could hear constant texts throughout (I then put it on silent). Also, it wasn't very easy to text with this phone...
Moving onto another fairly basic function of a phone these days - photos and videos. Unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy Mini took very very low quality pictures, so avoid this phone should you want decent photos.
In terms of its other functions, it loaded applications fairly quickly. It's fairly light and small too as the name "Mini" suggests.
However as soon as I was offered another smart phone by my dad, I was quick to take up the offer. The Samsung Galaxy Mini might look nice on the exterior and it is cheap for a smart phone, but it doesn't offer all that much. I'm happier with my alternative phone.
Summary: Wouldn't really recommend, for a smart phone it didn't fulfill all my expectations.
