If you are a mobile phone user who still hasn’t jumped on the Smart Phone bandwagon .. Pay attention! I know many who are happy with the Calling & SMS functions and dish out an average of RM 600 , this is the phone you need. Samsung released the Galaxy Mini 2 on the 14th of May 2012 in Malaysia to the appearance conscious consumers.

It comes with a 3MP camera, this is almost as good as the iPhone 3GS which came with a 3.2 Megapixel camera. Whats surprising is for the price point, the Galaxy Mini 2 comes with Near Field Communication (NFC) support built-in,
This device runs on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) which is a very easy to use operating system which has more than 500,000 applications on Google Play, Android’s App Store. So if you are worried of how you are going to ‘graduate’ from your conventional phone to a Smart Phone, don’t fret .. It will be a very seamless and fun experience!
When i got my hands on the device, I was concerned on how slow the phone might be considering the processor but to my surprise the device responded very well to touch and has good response time. What i like best about the Android Operating System is the ability to customize the phone. There is no one formula, you are free to add widgets and set up multiple pages the way you want it.
