Samsung Galaxy Mini review: Camera

Samsung galaxy mini

The Samsung Galaxy Mini comes with a 3.15MP camera with no flash. For the price, the camera's average, but when comparing it to other devices, it's shockingly poor – mainly down to the lack of flash.

Once again, here's where its brother, the Samsung Galaxy Ace, gets points as it incorporates a flash, allowing for better quality shots to be taken in dark environments.

There are different shot modes available – backlight, beach/snow, candlelight, dawn, fall colour, firework, landscape, night and party/indoor – but they are gimmicky and don't provide any actual enhancements, only making images more blurry or red.

NORMAL MODE: Picture taken indoors at night is a good shot, picking out the white of the fur

CANDLELIGHT: This image is much more orange, and alters the colour of the fur and carpet quite drastically

NIGHT: This mode should have been the best for the environment, but the normal mode does seem better

ACTION: Action shots are incredibly difficult to capture, and more often than not, you'll just see a blur
