Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini
4 October 2014
Summary: Despite the name, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is the perfect size for many people, put off by the grotesque proportions of the latest Android super phones, and Apple’s closed off iOS software. And its looks and software are easy on the eye too.
Summary: The Samsung i8190 Galaxy S III Mini are placed in a lower band than the older brother, both as regards the characteristics which, of course, for the price. Stay the same high quality and excellent design, featuring a bit all over the Galaxy family.
Pros: Large memory; Super AMOLED Display, Wi-Fi, NFC, dual-core processor, Android version.
Summary: Mini-size, maxi-performance? Samsung introduces a new compact version of its successful flagship model Galaxy S3. The Samsung Galaxy S3 mini GT-I8190 includes Android 4.1.1 and a super AMOLED touchscreen with a 4-inch diagonal screen measurement and is meant to round off the Galaxy Series in the...
Pros: compact and lightweight, AMOLED display: bright and contrast rich, Use of Android 4.1.1, many apps available, main camera (720p videos, 5 megapixel, LED-flashlight), battery life, Decent performance in a compact, elegant chassis and the Micro SD card reader.
Cons: Transmitting and receiving performance only average, performance not very high, only 12 month warranty, front camera, The processor could have been faster and the cameras should feature higher MPs.
Summary: If you were expecting the S3 Mini to offer the delights of the S3 in a more compact design, think again. It isn't just the size that's been reduced. This is a phone that costs a lot less than the original S3, and the hardware spec has been cut significantly as a result.
Summary: The basics For those who couldn’t stomach the sheer size of its bigger brother, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is here. It takes the same pebble design cues as Sammy’s smash hit super phone, as well as cutting edge Android Jelly Bean software, and shoves it into a smaller four-inch shell.
Pros: Unlike the truly boring Sony Xperia J we checked out this week, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini’s got a bit of panache: it takes the same curved styling of the S3, and white hue to boot. It’s plastic, yes, but somehow it seems stylish too. And it runs almost exactly the same software too: Samsung’s ho...
Cons: While it may sport similar software to the Samsung Galaxy S3, the S3 Mini’s hardware pales in comparison. The four inch screen, though compact, is a lower resolution 800x480, which looks grainy and old against the pin sharp HD display of its bigger brother. And the 1GHz dual-core processor, thoug...
Pros: Scaled down design, Android Jelly Bean, MicroSD support, Bright Screen, Given that the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is based upon the Galaxy S3 , and we loved the design of that, we can safely say we really liked the design of the Galaxy S3 Mini. Its smaller stature than its bigger brother means it sit...
Cons: Expensive, Dual core, Low Screen resolution, Samsung Apps, Samsung has yet to create an amazing keyboard, with its current offering being functional, yet nothing spectacular. It might be to Samsung's credit that the first thing that we thought of when writing this section was the keyboard, but th...
Conclusion: It's hard not to like the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. While its specifications are by no means as impressive as those found on the full-sized Galaxy S3, it's worth noting that it's much cheaper than its older brother at around £300 SIM-free.
Pros: Nice design, good camera, excellent battery life, runs Google's up to date Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
Cons: Noticed some lag, screen disappointing compared to the Galaxy S3., High price tag compared to similar or better phones.
