This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 160 MB 3G Steel Gray Unlocked Cell Phone 3.14"
Pros: Good price for a smartphone with GPS/WIFI
Cons: Horrible reception & battery life
Other Thoughts: First of all, I received this phone without the headset and mircoSD card – they were included in the picture of the product. The camera can’t be used without the SD card. Secondly, the reception of the phone was horrible. The call could drop a few times for a 10 minutes call no matter I was outside or in my house. Thirdly, the battery life is short. I tried to turn off all the processes running on the background that would eat up the battery, such as fetch email data, GPS, network searching etc. With all these applications off, the battery can only last for a day with the regular usage ( a few phone calls, texts and some web browsing). I have to say I used Samsung before and didn’t have such bad experiences. I guess the problem was caused by un-locking the phone to fit into other carriers? I believe the phone I received is an Europe model.
I wish I could return or replace this phone.
