The Samsung Galaxy Mini Black & Green Refurb on 3
Why we like it
- Compact, comfortable size
- SWYPE technology for faster typing
- Great connectivity options
- Good battery life
The Samsung Galaxy Mini on 3 is a fantastic addition to the Galaxy family which makes a real splash with its compact size and brilliant value.
The Galaxy Mini's 110x60mm shell sits easily and comfortably in your hand or pocket, and is perfect for single-handed use. The 3.1" capacitive touchscreen looms large in the small frame, and sports Samsung's TouchWiz UI and SWYPE technology for effortless and speedy text input.
Don't let its small size fool you when it comes to performance, though! The Galaxy Mini runs Android 2.2 and packs a 600mHz processor, easily matching other pint-sized offerings and is especially impressive for a budget phone. It also sports a good connectivity suite, with micro USB, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 and A-GPS.
The Mini has a neat little 3 megapixel camera, which is great for taking the occasional snap when you're out and about. The music player not only works with any set of 3.5mm headphones or speakers, but packs a FM radio and 5.1 surround sound virtualisation, as well as a straightfoward and simple interface and the option of a number of different equaliser presets.
As an introduction to the world of smartphones, or simply as a functional but great value update from an older phone, the Samsung Galaxy Mini on Three packs everything you need into a compact and attractive form, and is sure to be friendly to your pocket any way you slice it.
