Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini review

12 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Packing an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS in a smaller package than the original, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini offers Super AMOLED skills but it’s up against the Motorola Razr i, Sony Xperia P and the original iPhone 4. The Mini remains identical to the Samsung Galaxy S3 in design terms. There’s a slim plastic body and removable back panel for the battery, SIM and MicroSD card. On the surrounding edges, there’s just the power button and a volume rocker.
  • Pros: Slim profile, Jelly Bean Android standard (out of the box), Super light
  • Cons: Small storage capacity, mediocre camera, Expensive for its specs

Maximizing Your Samsung Galaxy S3: Improving Battery Life

Mobile Magazine
12 August 2013
  • Conclusion: If you think that there is a specific app that might be bringing you massive battery drain, you can always use the built-in battery usage tool to check for sure:  Settings > About Phone > Battery Usage Looking a 3rd party app specific to increasing battery life? JuiceDefender Free or the more powerful Pro version might be worth a look. Keep in mind that the Pro version will set you back $5.

[Review] Official Samsung Galaxy S3 Extended Battery

5 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Battery life in smartphones is always a little less than we need, and with the prevalence of external battery packs and portable chargers, replacement batteries almost get overlooked these days.  With good reason. Most add way too much bulk and weight to your device, and no one wants a phone that feels like a brick, much less looks like one.  We’re all addicted to our super slim, super sexy devices.  Why would we want to make them fatter and heavier?

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Review

11 April 2013
  • Summary: We guess what keeps this an S3 is the software, while the hardware deserves to be called S3 Lite rather. We loved a part of the hardware and the software, but there are a few things that hold it back. It needs a larger screen for most people as typing really was difficult, design is much unappealing, video only goes up to 720p without auto-focus and all that.

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini a killer bargain for a buck

10 April 2013
  • Summary: First-time smartphone buyers get a lot for a little with Samsung's year-old Galaxy S3 Mini, but keep in mind that this is no high-end performer.
  • Cons: Mediocre call quality and internal speed hiccups are two trade-offs for the price; you'll especially notice shutter lag.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Review: In Depth

1 January 2013
  • Conclusion: We really like the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, it might not offer the feature set of the Galaxy S3, but it looks near identical and offers the same experience - with a few compromises. The specification sheet puts the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini firmly in the middle of the mobile phone market, yet actually performs better. Our main problem with the phone is the price - £300 is too expensive..
  • Pros: Sturdy build, similar to Galaxy S3, Android 4.1, Excellent performance
  • Cons: Expensive, Screen resolution could be higher

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini ships with Android 4.1.2 in Asia

Android Authority
31 December 2012
  • Excerpt: If you’ve read our Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini review , you’d know that the phone doesn’t hold a candle to its bigger brother when it comes to specs. Nevertheless, the Mini scores big on usability factor and the fact that it looks a lot like the Galaxy S3 – albeit smaller. As we’re about to ring in the New Year, Samsung has a surprise for those who are planning to get the phone.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

12 December 2012
  • Summary: A solid, shrunken down version of its bigger brother but we can’t recommend the Mini over the cheaper and far superior Nexus 4
