This looks like my Galaxy GIO S5660. Interesting bump on the back cover, will it have a longer battery capacity or is just for 'olding it right'.

Suddenly my droid 2 feels so old, almost surpassed by a low end device.

The difference again is the fact the the X Arc has more than a ghz of processing power and bigger RAM, something the Samsung Mini 1 doesnt have hence the lag like many Symbian S60 devices before Nokia adopted Anna and Belle, which still lags. The Mini isnt perfectbut comparing the ARC with the Mini is comparing a luxury Audi A8 with a Toyota Yaris, different class of mobile.

Especially with the update, the scrolling should have been smooth as butter given the lesser pixels and smaller screen. Maybe some others X10 minis were riddled with bugs more than others

No flash phones means it can still capture pictures even in dim light.

Good Design Samsung and respectable specs too, should be a tough competition to phones like N8, Defy, X10

By the specs and design, this would replaces Galaxy Gio as well.

Still Galaxy Y has better design, because it looks like a mini iPhone, *cough* I mean mini Galaxy S.

The stupid digitizer is not responsive, try to scroll fast on a long list for example your contacts and see what happens or try to play fruit ninja.

The Battery cover starts to wobble after two months only.

I couldnt take it anymore and got the arc.
