debz, 09 Mar 2014For everyone who thinks its a wrong move by Samsung, their decisions are based on market needs... moreYeah. The Galaxy S III name will sell this phone well. It won't be the greatest value for money, but neither will it be "totally unusable" like the haters will claim. I have used the "old" S3 Mini and it's an okay phone for moderate use. If you want the fastest and best, you won't be buying a lower mid-range phone anyways. That said, initially it was was clearly overpriced and kind of rip-off.
why doesnt samsung relaunch s2 with latest processor and specs. it will b surely bang for bucks! :p
Well the phone is absolutely idiotic to us but I think samsung has a greater plan ahead. I think they will offer tizen updates to all these phones somewhere in the future and will try to break the android monoply hence getting the software market...
Sammy is a looser, nobody will buy this phone, is obsolete hardware and S.O.!
Samsung will hve to rebuild the Galaxy line in all ways, see LG's, great phones and even updating the design of your phones...im a very proud LG's fan! :P
It is also for sale here in Portugal under the name Samsung I8200. It also has NFC though, not sure the original I8190 had it.
the_seba, 09 Mar 2014Why get this if one has the option of getting a regular S3 which bests it in every way possibl... moreBecause this is another samsung hoax; most people think the SIII mini is just a "small" s III, and they don't even know the SIII today is a ripoff, so they think they're getting a deal instead of a sub-par, laggy and overpriced phone.
For everyone who thinks its a wrong move by Samsung, their decisions are based on market needs. And whats wrong in making a product better. As long as there are takers any product is great! Besides Samsung has been leading the way for the last many years. ..
Why get this if one has the option of getting a regular S3 which bests it in every way possible and costs about the same?
I have one like that . Is Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini SM-G730W8 and is a perfect size in hand (better than old S3 Mini : LTE(old just 3G) , 2000 mah battery (old just 1500 mah),dual-core 1.2 GHz with Adreno 305 (old just dual-core 1.0 GHz with Mali 400)...in rest it's same. In Canada is 250$ cad + tax full price
Heisenberg2501, 09 Mar 2014Go home Samsung, you're drunk!Yeah! LOL
