I like this phone but theres something i wanna know before i buy it. In phones like Nokia 5800, E72, C5-00, C5-03 etc etc Nokia offers free lifetime navigation with Ovi Maps. In such phones, maps can be downloaded into the phones from Ovi Suite and thereafter no internet connection is needed for navigation/GPS. Is such a feature available in this phone? I know that on Android platform GPS can be integrated with google maps but do we have to connect to net everytime that we want GPS/navigation?
Nan, 01 Mar 2011Does it support android 2.3(gingerbread)......??for android 2.3 there is shoulb be min 1ghz proc

hi! i want to ask which is better samsung galaxy ace S5830 or galaxy mini S5570? im planning to buy a new phone next week thanks! :)
AnonD-2845, 02 Mar 2011how is the money value of this fonehello arjun,
give some reviews of your phone as u r using it...is it worth buying or not and price also.
Hi all, let me answer some of your questions:
1. Yes it supports live wallpaper, you dont need to root, it comes with one already in the phone, i tried with aquarium and it was awesome
2. Kies does support this phone and i am using it, all you need is .net framework 4 client to be installed in prior. Tethering is also supported which connects you to internet
3. Upgrading to 2.3 will only be possible if samsung officially declares and provides all the updates.
4. It supports smooth multi touch
5. you can play most of the 3D games without any lag
(accelerometer compatible games also supports)
6. it lacks flash, so all youtube videos will be streaming from a youtube app instead of your browser
7. PDF, Word, Excel all office files can be viewed
8. For some here who wants to know if this phone is better than nokia's symbian, my answer is "Complicated", I had been using symbian all my life and i really like symbian's functionalities than android phone, for non-GUI classic user with rich control over your smartphone "symbain for any day" :)
Finally my observation of Samsung mini
1. Camera is Fixed focus but does really better than other phones in its class
2. Speaker phone is the worst of all, i hardly found voice coming out when in speaker-phone mode, my micromax x225 was far far much better than this.
3. Battery for standby is Good as said by samsung, that is you need to switch off Edge completely with Auto Sync and Background Data OFF. If you are a user who keeps experimenting with new apps and plays music and browsing, you can maximum make out for ONE DAY ONLY.
4. No front Camera so no Video Calling
5. Lower Screen Resolution is the drawback, but with few widgets and some custom Fonts you can definitely make your mini much better.

smallgent, 02 Mar 2011Surely since Android has the USD tethering function. It is very easy. I tested already.What is USB tethering function?
Are they sure this doesn't support live wallpapers? Cause I saw a video on YouTube where the guy is used a live wallpaper. I'm just not sure if it was rooted or what, though it looked unrooted to me.
