Missing opportunity..A phone with the same specs as S3 but with 4" screen and a bit cheaper would have been a great hit. But Samsung probably doesn't want to hurt the sell of the very profitable S3. So better look at the coming 2013 Sony phones...
doesn't make sense the galaxy s2 is better and cheaper and a 1500 mAh batter man the galaxy w should be better then for about 250$
I don't think that quad-core running Jelly-Bean would be such a good idea when most phones running Icecream sandwich are running best off a quad-core...
Very disappointed in the specs shown so far. The Galaxy S Advance is better than the SIII mini imho. For the first time, Samsung came up short :(
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2012It's like a SGSII mini, bad move for sammy, badUhm, don't you think that is EXACTLY what Samsung wants? DUH!
NFC is a thing I missed even in the Indian version of Galaxy S2. I did not like the Galaxy S3 design either. I prefer rectangular shapes like S Advance. Galaxy S3 seemed like a bigger version of Galaxy S Duos to me. Galaxy S3 mini seems no different. If this phone is priced above Rs 17000 my November purchase would be Galaxy S2. The Galaxy S Advance's size seems perfect for my hand but it has a single Mali-400 core whereas S2 has 4 Mali-400 cores for GPU. Screen in S2 is also better. NFC, price would be the deciding factor for me when I will shopping. S2, S3 mini, Lumia 820 are the ones in my plan right now.
better go for galaxy s2 or galaxy s advance!!!not worth for money!!!! s3 mini sucks :@ only worth when it comes down to Rs.20,000/- range!!!!
I suspect this new NovaThor SoC may be at 28nm. If so, then this is superior to the other phones that people are comparing this to.
adiyer92, 11 Oct 2012It does dude. I guess the Spec page hasn't been updated, but the S III Mini has a Mali-400P, j... moreIt may have the same Mali-400 but I don't think that it has the same number of GPU cores like the SIII, i.e an overlocked Mali-400MP4 (4 cores). The lower amount of usable RAM (552MB out of 1GB) will also be a serious downgrade.
What a rubbish my Galaxy S2 is much better
than this GS3 Mini. Once my Galaxy S2 will
receive Android 4.1, It will be even as
powefull as the orginal Galaxy S3 is. It's even
more ridiculous than Samsung overpriced it.
Moto Razr Intel, Sony, HTC are much better
and cheaper than the GS3 Mini.
bunty pahuja , 11 Oct 2012there is no graphics processor (GPU).bunty.. there is gpu .. else u cant do anything on the phone :). Novathor has ARM's Mali-400 dual core gpu ..
