As with the camera, video on the Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 is more of an afterthought by the Korean firm, rather than a stand out feature.

The rear 3.15MP lens can capture rather standard VGA (640 x 480) quality video, which is less than impressive as we start to see cheaper handsets offer up 720p video recording, such as the Sony Xperia U and Huawei Ascend G300, while the £200, Intel-powered Orange San Diego will give you 1080p – that's full HD people.

Once again Samsung has decided against giving us any fancy tricks with the camcorder app, with brightness and white balance settings lining up alongside the same three, boring effects in the camera app.

While recording you can adjust the 3x digital zoom using the volume rocker switch on the left side of the Galaxy Mini 2, but quality is reduced the more you zoom in.
