At the Mobile World Congress, Samsung’s Galaxy Mini 2 had a hard time making an impression, paling in comparison with the other super high-tech gadgets on display. However, if you take a look at the phone and ponder it’s usefulness in individual terms, it is not a bad device at all. It is now available for the United Kingdom market, and we’re sure many will order it. If you think you need something more high-end, check out our websites for other suggestions – Samsung themselves have quite a wide offer. You could still make good use of the Mini 2 either as a secondary device or maybe a gift for the kids. You can buy it from MobileFun, link is at the end of the article. More pictures of the new device are included as well.
The Galaxy Mini 2 is part of the ever-growing Samsung Galaxy family. It is designed as an entry level smartphone, with a pretty design that we appreciate, as well as decent specs. Nothing mindblowing, but a very good pick for Android users that would like an affordable new handheld to… well hand-hold. You guys get the picture.
Speaking of pictures, we would like to note the 3MP camera on the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2, which paired with the firm’s excellent fimware and the Android apps placed at your doorstep (or app-step, if you will), is quite neat. Also highly welcome is the NFC technology, present on the little Galaxy Mini 2. The rest of the specs are listed below:
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS
- A decent 800 MHz single-core processor
- 512 MB of RAM - Rather low but ok-ish if you keep it tidy
- 4 GB of internal storage (microSD slot – upgradeable by up to 32 GB)
- 3 MP rear-facing camera
- WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC
The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 starts at £179.95 (about $280 US dollars) at pre-order, and can be ordered for the UK at MobileFun.
