If we compare it to the similarly priced Sony Xperia Live with Walkman released in 2011, the Galaxy Mini 2 specifications are a bit disappointing. The Xperia Live retails as low as Php9,250 and will give you a faster 1 GHz processor and faster Adreno 205 graphics. But what the typical user notice more about the Xperia Live is the 5 MP autofocus camera, front camera and 720p video recording.
The Galaxy Mini 2 does have some advantages with 4 GB of internal storage (we do not know how much of it is user available at this time) and a slightly larger battery (1300 mAh v. 1200 mAh).
