Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini review

t3me.com
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

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

CNET
3 October 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.
  • Pros: The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini delivers Android 4.2, 4G LTE, NFC, and a solid 5-megapixel camera for just $1 on contract.
  • 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

Stuff.tv
23 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Galaxy S3 Mini is Samsung's way of providing the best-selling S3 experience to consumers on a budget and without the need for blistering specs. With its familiar design, Super AMOLED display, Jelly Bean features and decent camera, it's safe to say it's done just that. But at £300, there's simply no way that we can recommend picking up the Galaxy S3 Mini over the Google Nexus 4 , which can be picked up for £240 and £280 for the 8GB and 16GB versions respectively.
