whatever you read about thos phone thats bad, ignore it. The samsung galaxy mini is not as mini as it sounds, compared to its rivals it is actually quite large.
The internet on the phone is very quick using hsdpa (3.1g) and on wi-fi networks. also the android os is very good on eclair (2.1). the android market has a good choice of apps including angry birds for free
making phone calls is very quick and easy along with text messages and e-mails. however adding contacts is very similar to the iphone and other top end rivals.
Overall a great phone! I recommend if you are looking for low to mid end smartphone :-)
