Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III mini review: The Halfling

Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III mini review: The Halfling - read the full textDesign and software experience coming straight from the most successful droid of all times, packed in a shell that's far easier to pocket. Now, who wouldn't want some of that? The Samsung Galaxy S III mini is the company's most premium compact Android smartphone and is here to prove...

 

Sort by:

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.

"coupled with Samsung's home-brewed Nature UX and its cool software tricks goes some way towards justifying the higher price tag."

does anyone really care for those "software tricks"?

The Samsung Galaxy Exhilarate is a much better deal and can do everything this phone does.

I think that the only use for the most powerful phones is to play games... But I wonder if there is anyone who play on the phone for more than 15 minutes instead of only showing for the friends what their phone is capable of (not to mention that the majority of these games run on much less powerful hardware).

I think the Samsung Rugby Pro (i547) is a much better phone for the $$$, especially if the 4" screen and smaller size is the main concern. Better specs and much tougher to boot (it is a little thicker though). i547 was just released also thus should be getting Jellybean and a couple of other updates before it is shelved.
