I expected much more from Samsung when I bought this phone but here r the reasons why im disappointed:
1-bad battery life(need to charge at least once during the day with normal use)
2-no light sensor for auto brightness control
3-no notification led light
4-volume buttons and lock button bad positions
5-Bad screen visibility under sunlight
Best sized device:screen phone ever built. but having the above points I do not recommend buying this device. Samsung could hace made better sales with this device.......
If this phone doesn't have nfc out of the box , then Galaxy s2 for the bigger screen

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?
Hi.. it has no move to sd function. . What if the internal memory are used up. Does the apps transfer to the SD automatic ?whenever I install an apps. What are the other options. I hope Samsung will include this function of ever the will have an update. Thanks!
this is a nice phone. glad i bought it. can play mass effect gta 3. but not modern combat 4. running game 2D very smooth. responsive and etc etc. this is my chosen phone that's fulfill my needs :D
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...
I have had the phone for 3 months now, lovely phone it has features of much "higher' specs phone, definitely value for money.

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.
