Samsung Galaxy Mini 2

The Good Compact, sturdy design; Colourful casing; MicroSD card slot.

The Bad Not very powerful; Screen isn't the greatest.

The Bottom Line The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 is a budget blower designed for a younger owner. It's light on features and not very powerful but as a cheap and cheerful first-time smart phone it's charmingly basic. There are more powerful and capable Androids at bargain basement prices so do your homework before committing your pocket money.

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2

Samsung's smart phone Galaxy universe is populated by devices of all stripes -- from the pricey Galaxy S3 right down to the cheap as chips Galaxy Y.

The Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 is definitely more budget red dwarf than money-burning white hot giant -- hence the dinky price tag. It's basically a slightly beefed up Galaxy Y with a very compact, palm-friendly shape and a bright yellow behind.

You can grab the Galaxy Mini 2 for pocket-money prices. It's being offered free from around £10 a month on a two-year contract. Amazon has it SIM-free for circa £150.
