It's not a very good phone. Slow when opening apps. Loads very slowly. Camera's not good. And the battery runs out quickly, I mean like veeeerryyy quick. One minute it was like 95%, and then after like 20 minutes it goes to 7%. Shut downs/ restart randomly. If I had a choice I would pick another phone. But I'll have to survive with this phone. and Samsung should give this phone an upgrade to kitkat.

Absolutely love this phone. Running 4.2.2. Screen is very sharp and easy on the eyes. The touch screen is very reactive. All aspects of the phone are fast and seamless. Screen size is perfect; can easily fit in pocket.

my s3 mini got an update sometime this mornin
but after the installation and optimization
nothing had change.
it was still on 4.1.2 and the update weighed in at a bit over a hundred mbs.
has this occurred with anyone else, does anyone know what this is about?

No update of firmware, dated chip, lag in heavy game, apps can't move to SD card, limited internal memory, bad i meant very bad battery life, low ppi dispite super amoled screen.

Get a S4mini which is much better & KitKat 4.4 update available.

I was extremely happybwith my Galaxy s 111 mini until it suddenly started telling me "not registered on network". Switching off, removing the battery and restarting sometimes works, but not always. Sometimes using Whatsup revives it but only sporadically. Help from the network provider is useless. I need a reliable cure.

guys i have been using it for almost a year. i must say for those having doubt about it, ITS THE BEST MIDRANGE device. Camera is great especially for video making (i have made dozens of 720p with absolute clearity). muisc quality is extremelly good and if you want optimum result, install next launcher and feel the difference. it will really become butter smooth and lag free. much better usability than stock touchwiz. just my opinion.
Many time i thought of shifting to nexus 4 and xperia sp but the love i have for this little droid prevents me for exchanging it, and i might keep it for longer or might give it to my family member in the end so that it can stay within my house :) . simply marvellous device. shame samsung isnt supporting it.

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.
