Hello everybody! Please help me choose between these two phones 'cause I am new to android.... Galaxy 551 and Galaxy mini...
1.) Which phone is better for gaming and internet?
2.) Is there a big difference between these two? If yes, what are they?
3.) Uhmm... I also want to ask if Galaxy 551 really has adreno 200...
4.) Does samsung already has an update for gingerbread (South east asian firmware)? If not, can I use the european?....
* Additional information: I also want 551 cause my hands are a bit big and I'm scared that I may not type correctly the words and have a hard time texting :D
Thank you in advance... And also, I'm new to this forum so sorry if I made some mistakes :)
Hello Hayato and welcome to Android Forums

1.)Both should be equal .Mini has more RAM smaller screen and 256K colours .551 has a bit less RAM ,bigger screen and 16M colours .
As far as gaming is concerned mini would be better since 240x320 has more games support
As far as internet is concerned the QWERTY 551 is better IMO .
3.)It has the adreno 200 like mini so the are equal
4.)You can use european firmwares
2.)The difference is the screen resolution .240x320 is standard 240x400 has issues regarding games which dont scale properly .
