All apps are automatically saved on the internal memory.

As far as I know, mostly, if not, all Jelly Bean phones do not allow transfer to SD card function.

You can have your phone rooted (but I think it's not very conventional. ) or download a program to your PC that allows the transfer of apps to the SD card.

I hope this helps.

I have had this phone for about 2 months now and an almost completely happy with it. 1 question though, was it not supposed to have some sort of smart "screen rotation" that can tell whether you're viewing content lying by your side or from an upright position? If so, how does 1 activate it?

here in Indonesia, Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III Mini price is only US$10 higher than Samsung I9070 Galaxy S Advance.

it's hard to choose between those two phones.
Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III mini has slightly better specs & software, but lack of ambient light sensor, and the design is not my taste.
Samsung I9070 Galaxy S Advance has better design with curved screen (i know that design is personal preferences, but still...), and so on.

i hope Samsung will lower the price of Galaxy S Advance a little further, so i can finally make my decision...

tell me one reason why s3 mini sucks? is it bad phone? have u even used one? I have used one month that phone and I must say amazing phone with only 280 euros price. I'm not any fucking wannabe, I just don't want phone that has 4.8 inches screen.. and you said that no one is interested about samsung and iphone sells with even that crazy high price but nowadays iphone isn't acctually selling that well anymore, because they made same old shit with just higher pricetag.

What would be a nice price for that phone? Is 340$ still to high? The price is dropping. It was at 400$ last years.
