I recently bought one and I tried the wifi as one of the 1st features that I was interested in. I think the problem with wifi connection may originate from the source and not the phone. Mine logs on with lighten quick speed and maintains connection and I use it in a hot spot and in my home with other computers logged on!
the problem in this phone is the internal memory its too low.. the wifi connection is weak, when im using wifi at the same time with my 2roommates using their iphone it indicates connection lost.
aman, 23 Jul 2012galaxy mini, upgrade ur mini to 2.3. it gives nice battery backupThe battery does not last anything like advertised, even with virtually everything switched off. Very disappointing.
I have samsung mobile Model S5570I which has not accepted any phone dialer for using internet.I had tried all mobile dialer but it has installed the dialer and while calling time their sounds are came to hear but from here our sounds are not going in this mobile.This is the problem oftenly happened.I had consult with mobile shoper also they are also not giving full confident about this mobile.So if any body have this mobile please inform which dialer has to accept and support to speak clearly for this mobile.
I've got a solution for those who suffering from battery problem.... Try to root your phone... Or install new custom rom available for galaxy mini.. Trust me guys ur battery stand by will increase to the maximum extent... Try to google out for custom rom....
the phone is brilliant but only the down side is the battery
it says it over 9hours
not really its much less
when playing the games it seams 2 eat the battery
also when texting an using the wifi function
overall is a good fone - when on the move its best to take yer charger with you
This is a negative feedback on the galaxy mini,I mention true problems that I have faced with this phone,please be careful on purchase:
-Wi-Fi at sometimes not turning on at all until further reboot
-signal drop till nothing (service unavailable),fixed in two ways,reboot or airplane mode switch on then off
-at sometimes when installing an app,the phone crashes and reboots without completing the installation,when the phone finishes the reboot process,the space that was meant to be taken from the internal memory by the app that was installing before the crash,is actually taken from the memory with the app nowhere to be sighted,so I can't uninstall or use that specified app.
-terrible internal memory:180 Mb.
-no separate system memory from the internal memory,that means if you run out of internal memory,you won't be able to receive any msgs at all.
-multiple crashes upon calls being answered,you won't be able to answer the phone,or know who called you.
-clunky back and menu buttons that get worn out quickly and are rendered useless.
-worst battery life ever,3h45m of gaming and video playback,completely unreliable.
in the end don't buy this phone unless if it was your last choice,if your on budget then you have to buy it..final review score:4/10
[deleted post]Don't buy this crappy phone, even Corby II, unless you have to bring your wall charger always. Both have very poor battery performance.
Aadi, 20 Jul 2012this is my first android phone. its feauture are good but battery backup is very very poor. Of course, it's an Android-battery-drainer OS. So you have to charge it always.
Great phone. I have it for more than a year and I had no problem with it. Battery lasts 2-4 days (depends what I do). I recommend it!
