TANVIR, 14 Jul 2011Mr.Fakrul, i read some of ur opinion abt GALAXY MINI s5570.U already use this phone.I m confus... moreI owned Samsung Galaxy S i9000 and Galaxy Mini S5570 about 6 month ago and since then i'm quiet happy on both device which got every features i needed.
Galaxy S are the perfect smartphone i ever had (no more Nokia and SE..) and i always show off to iPhone user on what Galaxy S can do especially it has 1ghz Cortex8 Cpu with PowerVR SGX 540 while latest iphone 4 only has Gpu PowerVR SGX535. Galaxy S are most succesful android phone by Samsung and still the top choice by the consumers. I've no complaint about this phone except the higher price even this model is already sold 1 year in the market.
Galaxy Mini also still the best among android OS phone these day. But you should consider to Galaxy Gio and Galaxy Ace because it has better screen resolution at 320x480 (HVGA) while Galaxy Mini only has 240x320 (QVGA). Low screen resolution means poor capability of display viewing especially you'll notice a distorted font and unsharped images. If you're at mobile phone shop, try to compare Galaxy mini with other hi-res screen model and see what the different.
I can't tell what the best phone for you but please do survey first the specification like the display res, 3g, wifi, gps, Camera Mp (autofocus), or etc. There are other brand at same range you can choose like SE Xperia X8 and X10 Mini or LG Optimus One and Optimus Me. However if you're stick with brand Samsung then i'll recommend you to buy Samsung galaxy Ace.
Mr.Fakrul, i read some of ur opinion abt GALAXY MINI s5570.U already use this phone.I m confused that should i buy this phone or not.So can u plz tell me wht are the advantages & disadvantages of this phone? some people complained that resolution is poor (256k color,240*320)so wht is ur comments & suggestion abt that?
Do we have to pay even for the Document Viewer? The
manual of this handset says that we have to pay only
for the editor version if needed.Anyone please?

Sunny, 13 Jul 2011I am not able to transfer the application on memory card so please let me know how to transfer... moreYou can transfer your apps to SD card if you are in 'superuser' mode (rooting android). For more info what is 'Rooting Android' here's a simple explaination from this website:
However you still has option to move apps to SD (Android froyo 2.2 only) via other method by using Android SDK Tools with properly step-by-step procedure. Refer to this website on how to do it:
bims, 13 Jul 2011hi fakrul, sory for not completing my prob....my prob are limited in writing text and limited ... moreActually you can write a text message as long as possible but since there's a limitation sms MAP or SS7 protocol, every text message normally 145 character (8 Bits GSM Alphabet) per page while 60 Character for 16 Bits Unicode (UTF-16). If your text exceed the 145 character it'll jump to page 2 which mean you'll be charged from Telco as 2 sms for a single long text sms. Please check your 'Message setting' at menu 'Input Mode' and the option as GSM Alphabet or Automatic.
For MMS its unlimited writing depends on the Kilobyte per message by Telco (50Kb-300Kb) including all multimedia content such as Picture (jpeg), audio and video (3gp).
hi fakrul, sory for not completing my prob....my prob are limited in writing text and limited in writing in mms..thanks
I am not able to transfer the application on memory card so please let me know how to transfer the data on memory card from phone memory????
Rooting phone and upgrading android via third party software (Odin) are for advance user only. Anything bad happen (like power failure or bricking phone) during flashing firmware may cause your device unusable and only can be repaired by manufacturer only.
It's not recommended to do upgrading your android unless you know what to do exactly. Many user complaint about short battery life on Froyo 2.2 and want to upgrade to Gingerbread 2.3 because this version has better power management instead of many features and bugfixes.
All i have to say is it's not necessary unless Samsung announce the update through Kies. For now just learn how to use your android froyo properly by doing a simple method:
1) Lower display brightness (below 50%) - Use Brightness widget for easily change the screen brightness.
2) Turn Off Live wallpaper and use normal jpg wallpaper. Live Wallpaper make CPU always in busy where's consuming a lot power battery.
3) Disable Wifi, GPS and Bluetooth. Enable when necessary only. For GPS, install Papago instead of using Google maps.
4) Use 2G only. Only enable 3G if you want surf internet. (Internet by using WiFi are recommended)
5) Disable Packet Data and Roaming.
6) Kill running background programs. (Close the program not meaning absolutely close the software.)
7) Don't play 3D games - Playing games Of course will drain your battery 3 times faster than using your phone for internet (3G / Wifi). Buy PSP if you want play games with far more advance graphic and faster frame rate compared gaming on your phone - Beside PSP Go & 3006 are cheaper now since brand new PSP Vita out to market soon by Q3 2011 ;)
Hope all of you happy with Froyo now..
