Aweful battery life.Repenting on my purchase
5 days ago
Summary: I won't recommend this product to anyone. This product is having the worst battery life that I can imagine. This phone has been purchased brand new on 02/23 and the battery does not last for 6 hours...Pathetic..
Summary: I bought the mini because of its size and because of my experience with the full size S III. I could not use the 32 GB micro sd in the mini that I was using in the full size S III because it would randomly say that it could not recognize the card. It worked OK with a 4 GB card. I have not tried anything between 4 and 32. The 32 GB still works fine in the full size S III. The performance of the mini is much slower than the full size. The mini will randomly lock up on me.
Summary: I purchased the product to replace my samsung sidekick 4g and was very disappointed. I got the phone from 232tech and im not sure if it was the phone or the store but I had two sent to me and they both lasted maybe a month. 232tech told me the manufacturers were sending faulty batteries along with their phones, and yet refused to refund or rectify the situation. I would definately recommend spending the extra money for the s3,s4, or s5 when its released.
Summary: w Works like it should. I like & trust all Samsung products. I've had good experiences with them. I would still have My Galaxy if I hadn't run over it with My wheel chair. No exterior visible damage , but the screen now won't light up.
Summary: I like the S3 mini. It is a very functional phone. I wish it had a better camera but pictures come out ok. Great battery life and has all the organizational features you would want. My major problem is with the email app. I have to constantly reset it in order to pull in messages that are a few days old. Wish they would just stay there. Other than that pretty good smartphone.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Lightweight, great organizational features
Summary: This is not a review of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini I8190 GSM Phone itself because I wasn't able to use the device due to the fact that it is NOT AN UNLOCKED Phone as advertised. After spending hours on the phone with my Straight Talk service provider, Samsung Tech support and a third party consultant, we determined that this device was never meant to work in the USA as a GSM unlocked unit.
