Hi there!
I bought my SGS 3 mini more than a year now, and i am using the official rom. Suddenly, the phone is not able to charge the battery. when i plug in the charger it says "charging" but the bat percentage keeps decreasing until finally going dead.
I sent it to Samsung service center who apologized to repair and said it may be a defect in the mother board.
I purchased an external charger and the phone is usable again, but it is a real pain to switch it off and remove the battery each time i need to charge it.
I thought that this may be a software bug or something, so i performed a hard reset but in vain.
Now i am thinking of re-installing the official rom.
Do you think this could solve the problem? what are your thoughts? thanks.

i don't know why this complain about battery life. Of course is not the best, every smartphone have this issue. You can not expect performance and good price with one product. I have been use it for a year now the S3 mini and work perfectly, if you want something else then go buy S4, S4 mini, Note 3....oh i forgot....they are expensive!!!!

NFC is only available on the i8190N, and that version is country dependent, which means that it is only available in countries that support it.

there's an 18 month period of support from the official release of an android device... the s3 mini has been out since October 2012, giving us only like 2 month of that supporting time remaining.
We know you've flooded the market with a different phone every second samsung, but once they get released you total forget about taking proper care of the software within all giving time, newer phone with seemingly less ram and cpu power have arrived an are on higher level updates than the s3 mini!!!
