So here is a review of staying with mini and some tips:
1. I would NOT recommend galaxy mini as of 2012 because its lacks pixel density and processor speed and RAM. Buy a new phone and get better specs instead of not being able to install hd games and limited to armv6 apps.
2. Don't get galaxy mini 2, it lacks a gpu and is worst than galaxy mini.
3. The galaxy mini is best to root and install custom roms.
4. We have cm10 (jelly bean) on galaxy mini but till now, we have issues like camera not working (xda if u can google lol)
5. Its a basic phone, not for playing hd games, and u would better get gingerbread.
6. The froyo has software bugs, i think which drain battery. I use gingerbread and its stable and little battery drain.
7. This phone's display is not good, i mean u can see pixels on the screen and viewing in sunlight is awful due to intense glare.
8. On custom ROM, the mini works fine and you experience little lags.
9. The camera of 3mp is awful, poor photos :/
On a final note, if u are getting this in 2012 and are tight in budget, look at the HTC desire C which comes with ICS and is slightly better or check galaxy ace 2 or sony xperia U. In 2011 it was good, but its outdated now like all phones with time.
It was my 1st smartphone and i had some regrets but overall it served me well :) Have a nice day.

Guys being forewarned is being forearmed,dont waste your valuable cash purchasing this invaluable asset,the one i bought has hardly stayed for 4 months and it just mysteriously went dead never to come back to life,i thought the 1 year warrant would save me but it just a series of frustrations whilst making the warrant claims...it sucks
