Samsung Galaxy Mini is Smaller Version of Popular Flagship Device

Author: John Davis

If there is one phone that is more desirable than the Samsung Galaxy S, then it would probably be a mini version of it. It is exactly what the Samsung Galaxy Mini is after it was announced that Samsung are planning to launch a smaller version of the incredibly popular high-end phone. This will be made to satisfy customers who cannot afford the high price of the Samsung Galaxy S. Of course, it does sacrifice on a few features, but overall it is fully worth the portion of money that you will be paying for the Samsung Galaxy Mini.

The Samsung Galaxy Mini comes with a sleek body, which is rounded off at the bottom rather than at the top. There are only a few buttons on the face of the phone. They include the buttons for making and receiving calls, and menu button. This minimalistic usage of buttons has meant that Samsung has been able to include a 3.14 inch touch screen display. This capacitive touch screen display might not be able to support the highest resolution of the Samsung Galaxy S, but the resolution of 320 x 240 pixels is more than sufficient for a phone with this screen size. The phone has 3.5 mm audio jack that is used for connecting the phone with other headsets. Because of the presence of a sound technology called DNSe sound enhancement, it is extremely possible to use high-quality headsets without worrying about the level of audio that you will be able to hear.

Even though the internal memory of the phone is limited to only 160 MB, Samsung has gladly provided the option of being able to upgrade to the highest consideration possible. There is a 2 GB memory card included in the box, while the Samsung Galaxy Mini provides support for up to 32 GB cards. The connectivity options in the Samsung Galaxy Mini are pretty vast. There is the 3G option, which supports a maximum download speed of 7.2 Mb per second. There is also the Wi-Fi option, which is capable of supporting far greater speeds than the 3G option. While these options will let you to connect to the Internet, there are options that will let you connect to other devices like the micro-USB and Bluetooth option.

The camera in the phone is a 3.15 megapixel unit, which is basic in all respects. Features like video recording and Geotagging are the additional features along with the camera. The video recording feature is capable of capturing videos in the QVGA resolution. The videos are captured at a frame rate of 15 frames per second, which is more than good for a phone in this price bracket. Digital compass and social networking integration are some of the other features in the Samsung Galaxy Mini. Even though the phone has only a 600 MHz processor, it is still running on the Android 2.2 operating system. Samsung claims that this is more than enough for running this operating system version of Android.
