Guess that warranty is voided, but it didn't cost me much, only 100 euros. If its totally bricked and theres nothing I can do (i wont take it to store so they could fix it up) which android phone should I buy?
Reply plssss i need help Thnx!!
Edit: The Battery out and 3button combination thing doesn't work
About the phone, for what i've heard and read, you shouldn't install ROM manager to a Samsung Galaxy mini. For some reason, a mini can't handle that app. So my wild guess (take it as a highly possible wrong guess) that there's nothing (or maybe just one thing) you can do: doing the thing i've read "jig" method... You should look it up...
Jig method for unbricking a phone (i was this close to doing it)
it envolves using a spare micro USB cable (that you will have to cut open eventually) and a resistance... i read a tutorial about it, and if you can't get to it, i will help you look it up.
About the android phone you should pick up, in case your mini died, I'm just not the right person to tell you this, as the Galaxy mini is my first android phone. Probably you can just google "best android phone" and you will get a very good idea.
I sincerely hope you fix your phone, i know bricking a phone can be a pain in the butt... i sincerely do hope you fix it
