just got this phone yesterday been pretty fine, Android is good no lags. Here what i thought:

Pros:

. Value for money
. Good build quality
. Music is good in ear and pretty much ok on speakers
. Web browser is great
. Touch is quite responsive
. Camera is good in daylight
. Swipe and qwerty works like a charm and there's a touch keypad too like abc-def
. Document viewer (didn't test the editor yet)
. Live wallpaper support, one built in
. Multi touch
. Pinch zooming
. Eye candy music player
. wifi & GPS works great
. Battery is alright lasts a day at normal usage
. Good choice of built in apps and organizer
. Android market and Samsung apps
. Screen is pretty ok for the resolution some built in wallpapers help quite alot

Cons:

. No divx/xvid support
. video quality
. camera quality at night
. Lacks flash
. Don't like the stock earphones
. Auto rotation only gives me landscape view in sub sections like inside settings and messaging and turning it off only gives me portrait mode in everything
. Plugin the headphones plays sound in the speakers and the earphones at the same time (idk if my piece is defective or there are some tweaks to be done)

It all comes down to the value and BANG!! it delivers it by fulfilling my desires, however can someone assist me on the last two cons as im feeling like my mini is defective.

Thank you

for the price this is a great fone!!! feature wise, value to money & properties wise u won't be disapppointed anyway except the "battery".
Though the battery is rated for 1200mAh, its performance is not upto the mark..it drains out much early; may be in even 12 hrs without any surfing or browsing heavy application..I am not sure if the running programes under application can be 'forced closed' or not?? I mean is it ok if i do so?? please reply as this may b smthng that cud help battry perform better..

@ Tany

The OS is not upgradable because it has android 2.2 and for android 2.3 you need at least 800 MHz processor.
Ram of samsung galaxy mini is 384 mb. Camera quality is great.

If you have more money, buy galaxy ace.

ace 15k, this is about 10k in the Philippines.

but the 5k difference is worthy.
the screen/display is kinda poor in mini. it's like having a champ phone
