Comment: samsung galaxy s5570 skype have
Good: Great Size and Price
Comment: Did an awesome comparison with the s3 mini and the s4 mini. It was no contest http://bitly.com/10N4USm - I went with the s4 mini. Even with the 50% discounts on the s3 mini, the s4 mini was my choice after seeing the reviews.
Good: Screen size is fair.
Bad: Far too easy to accidentally press the volume control and off buttons when making calls. Screen locks up during calls. Batterly life is abysmal.
Comment: This is the worst phone I have ever owned. Dreadful. The touch screen locks during calls. It's difficult to end calls, The buttons on the side are too easy to accidentally press during calls - for example I have caught the buttons and reduced the ring volume to zero and missed important calls. The swype text input method is absolutely dreadful - once you have activated it you try deactivating it - it's a nightmare trying to find the right controls. I have never ever used a more frustrating phone in my life and I used to only buy Samsung. No way will I buy a touch screen phone again - dreadful. Samsung really fouled up on this phone and don't even get me started on battery life - very poor - needs charging daily. Absolutely no good for going away on business. Very disappointed in Samsung.
Comment: Good Android Phone OS
Bad: Battery Life
Comment: Great Phone,Fast Performance And Looks Great!
The Battery Life Lets It Down So What I Did Was Just By A Battery Off Of eBay For Roughly £2.49 And Away We Go! Best Phone I've Had Up To Now!
Good: cheap, and good for newbie
Bad: the display resolution, laggy browser, 600MHz is not enough
Comment: charge the battery for 3hrs in turned off, and you'll able to acces the internet for 4hrs non-stop.
Good: Cheap,android OS
Comment: It is good !!
Good: Cheap, Android Smartphone, Fast, Looks Good
Bad: Battery Life, Built in Storage
Comment: The Galaxy Mini is the ideal introduction to smartphones. It's cheap (£10/month on Tesco) but looks good and high quality. It supports 3G and Wi-Fi and also allows you to install apps from the Android Market. The battery life is nothing to write home about and the built in storage is poor but overall, I highly recommend this phone.
Good: The web browser is really fast and its very responsive the grip is good and the os.
Bad: Battery life
Comment: The web browser is really fast and its very responsive the grip is good and the os. if it had flash support i would give its five stars. the gps is very good it works perfectly. i also like the colour i got it in white. the camera is a 3.2 megapixel it was an ok camera it also has built in youtube it never buffers. It needs a little more memory it has 461 megabites it comes with a 2gb memory card. the screen is fine the resolution dont matter.it also has samsung apps as well as the android market it does 7.2 megabites per second. i have to charge the phone every day but i recommend it to everone that wonts a cheap phone its great value for its money. im on the 3 network they do great deals its only 129.99 on payg
Good: size, feel, android OS,
Bad: poor camera, abysmal battery life
Comment: Overall it's not a bad little phone, its web capability is fine and it has a good user interface but the camera is so poor that I dont even try to use it anymore, it's worse than 1st gen VGA cams. The battery, however, is a joke, It's almost an offence under the trade descriptions act to call it a battery, after an overnight charge, the battery will, with very light use , last until tea time. I you dare to use the phone and do a little facebook browsing, well, forget it !!
