Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

While the specification is on a par with all but the latest top-flight 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Android handsets, the Mini runs a little on the slow side. Long menus scroll at a pace best described as leisurely. It's never intolerably tardy while going about its business even with multiple apps running, but it's no iPhone either.

The only physical controls on the face are the call answer/end buttons and the central navpad. The standard Android Menu, Home and Back buttons form part of the touch-sensitive screen. The navpad, with its circular click-button surround, lets you navigate easily about the screen without getting your fingers in the way which is handy when looking at web pages shrunk to fit the 2.8in, 240 x 320 display.

Doubly so, since the touchscreen is resistive rather than capacitive. Screen swipes and taps were recognized with reasonable accuracy and consistency, but you do need to be more careful and more deliberate than with capacitive touch screens.

It's not as colourful or crisp as the latest OLED displays fitted to the likes of HTC's Desire and Legend, and the viewing angle could be more robust, but watching a full episode of Doctor Who via BeebPlayer was actually quite pleasant.
