The Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 enjoys the good ol’ standard Android gallery. Images and videos are automatically located no matter where they are stored. It can even import your online photos from Google Picasa galleries.
The gallery shows off pretty sleek 3D effects and transitions and the Galaxy Mini S5570 has no problems keeping those gimmicks stable and fluid. The albums appear as piles of photos which fall in an organized grid upon selection.
Alternatively, you photos can be organized by date with the help of a button in the top right corner which switches between grid and timeline view. In grid view, there’s a date slider, which can also be used to find photos taken on a certain date.
Pinch zooming is also available here thanks to the Galaxy Mini S5570 multi-touch support but you can also use double tap or even the +/- virtual buttons.
Along with the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, the Galaxy Mini S5570 music functionality is complemented by the great music player.
The interface consists of several sorting tabs: by artists, by albums, by playlists or just view all songs at once. On the bottom bar, there’s a neat button that shows you the current song that is being played and also shows the last played song when the music app is launched.
Galaxy Mini S5570’s music player settings are basic and straightforward. You can choose from different equalizer presets to enhance to sound to your likings. There’s an added virtualization of 5.1 audio channels and you need headphones to enjoy it.
The Samsung Galaxy Mini S5570 also features an FM radio with RDS. Up to four radio stations could be saved as favorites.
