Big things packed in small

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is the successor to one of the world’s best selling Android mobile the Samsung Galaxy S3. It has been made especially for the people who liked everything about the Samsung Galaxy S3 except of its monster size. Samsung Galaxy S3 mini packs the same oomph factor but in a small package.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini features a 4.0 inch, 480 x 800 pixels, 16M colors, Super Amoled touch screen running Android 4.0 toppled with Nature UX user interface. The screen is excellent with high quality display, wide angles and sunlight legibility. No complaints here.

The phone has been powered by a Dual core 1 GHz processor, Mali-400MP GPU and 1GB Ram to ensure buttery smooth performance of the mobile.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 mini packs a feature loaded 5 Mega Pixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash which can also capture videos of up to 720p@30fps. Some of other camera features include smile and face recognition. The pictures shot from the camera are the best a 5 Mega Pixel snapper can shoot.

It’s a complete mobile on the connectivity front as well. It packs all the connectivity features like 3G, Wi-Fi, DLNA, GPS, Micro USB etc. The phone also houses a 16GB of inbuilt memory which is further expandable via Micro SD slot.

Verdict

Like its predecessor, Samsung Galaxy S III mini is a complete package. It is the best mid range Android mobile. Though it houses a dual core processor and 5 MP snapper instead of Quad core and 8MP respectively, but that is what makes it affordable. It is the perfect alternative for those who did not buy the original S3 just because it iss too large or costly. If you are one among them, go for S3 mini undoubtedly.

    The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is a pared down version of the top-tier Galaxy S3, but does it do enough to compete with its rivals?...

    Pros: Slim profile ; Samsung apps ; Jelly Bean as standard

    Cons: Lack of storage ; Poor camera ; Expensive

    Verdict: The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini looks like a Galaxy S3 but has been stripped of all the things that made that smartphone the T3 smartphone of the year. It doesnu2019t look as nice as an iPhone 4, doesnu2019t have the camera skills of Sony smartphones and ...

    The Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III mini is like a nostalgic return to the roots for the highly successful Galaxy S franchise.

    Just as the Galaxy S2 got the Galaxy S Advance as its cheaper, slightly more basic mini-me, the S3 has now been joined in Samsung`s smart phone line-up by the S3 Mini. Naturally, the S3 Mini is much cheaper than its big brother, and you can nab one SIM-free for around £300, while the S3 floats around closer to the £400 mark. You can find the S3 Mini on a two-year contract from £15.50 per month. The two phones seem to be miles apart in te...

    Pros: Latest version of Android,Decent battery life and call quality,Feels comfortable in your hand,

    Cons: Too expensive,Outclassed by the cheaper Google Nexus 4,
