I'm using live wallpaper...
Bought this phone yesterday for 9k.. Been pretty much happy with it.. Having used galaxy 3, i must say this ones right up with it.. The only areas gal 3 scores higher than mini is in the screen (which is more crisp) and in the video player support.. i was only able to play 3gp files in mini whereas gal 3 supports avi and wmv formats..
If you are considering of going for Budget Android phones around 9k,There are only a few models availabe here in india. a) Micromax Andro A60, b)Spice, c)Heuwai IDEOS 80 150, d)Samsung Galaxy
pop. The first two models are cheap china models made by ZTE corp. Build quality is very poor with medicore performance & features. Also lots of bugs. After making a few research i decide to go for Samsung Galaxy pop, I got this for Rs.8,750. Though Heuwai is also good model but lack of service centre near by, Small screen size and poor display set me back. After using for a couple of days here is the pros and cons of Galaxy pop.
3.2" Screen size (Best in its catagory)
LATEST ANDROID 2.2 FROYO WITH touch wiz 3.0.
3.2 mp cam, Best in its catagory.
Proximatory sensor for auto switch off display.
Auto rotate of UI.
Captivative Screen which is very smooth.
Tons of Apps & Games thru Android market.
POOR DISPLAY RESOLUTION 240X320.
POOR COLOR REPRODUCTION ONLY 256K.
POOR BATTERY LIFE MAX 1 DAY IN NORMAL USAGE.
NO FLASH IN CAMERA.
MUSIC QUALITY IS MEDICORE.
NO SUPPORT FOR LIVE WALL PAPERS.
NO ADOBE FLASH SUPPORT IN THE BROWSER.
FULL PLASTIC BODY PRONE TO DAMAGE.
i jus wann 2 know the responsiveness of touch????
is it similar to galaxy 3???

Yes as said by many, Battery seems to be draining more than it should be, but its common with li-ion cell in initial phase, will pick-up its pace after 8-10 full recharges, will give a try and put some reviews here later.... but switching off Edge and brightness you can drag till 1.5days (approx)
I downloaded a font named armani and some of the UI has really improved, the cutting edge and sharper text seems to have a lil blend and smoothness now.
Is this screen resolution is enough for 3d games.. is it working...
Can any other browser can be installed for flash plugin..

this is a good phone if you are just started with android,
love the design, great when you are using it with one hand while the other is holding on to something...
got a radio that's a plus for me
a good display for the price range of this? awesome la..
enough memory and good speed with 600Mhz (can we overclock it by any chance? *curious*)
but there is a few cons... well nobody's perfect
no flash (that would be better if we had one)
the battery is not a satisfactory...you need more than one charger if you are traveling.

Guys, There is a lot of fuss abt this phones battery. Bot this phone for 8700/- on Feb 14th. Here is the battery review. Drained the battery to below 20% and charged fully to 100%.
1. Talk time 7h 7m. Exactly switched off at 7h 7m(Fully tested)
2. Audio 10h, played till 9h, it is showing battery 11% left(Fully tested)
3. web surfing continous 7h 22m have taken calls for abt 10 mins talk time in the middle.(Fully tested)
4. Video playback 5h 40m according to specification. (not tested)
5. 400h idle time according to specification(not tested)
Guys stop comparing with ace, thats almost double the price. Also the processor is fast enough. If you are looking for android 2.2 go for it without any hesitation. Today at this price you get pretty ordinary touch phones.
