Which mobile do you uze ???@ deepu @ 143
My main phone is a Galaxy S3, but I also have a Galaxy S3 Mini that only a few close friends have the number of.
I don't have a Facebook account because I protect my privacy. Myself and a few friends had a contest to find out who could discover the most about the others. Using FB, I was able to find out that one of them was having an affair with his neighbour, and discovered her name.
I was also able to find out that one of the others was in serious debt and was about to lose his house.
I would never use Facebook, Twitter, or any other of those social media sites.
Chipset: A chipset is a set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manage the data flow between the processor, memory and peripherals.
TFT vs. SuperAMOLED: It is too long winded to describe the difference here, but go to the link below for a full description.
In short, AMOLED screens give richer colours and better battery life. They are also clearer to see in sunlight.
I can't help you with the cost of the i8190 in Bangalore because I am resident in the UK. Sorry.
@ FREE FALLER

White flowers, 16 May 2013It says mini sim on specs but mine uses same old Vodacom sim. I'm confused The "mini" SIM is the standard card we use here in Mzansi(South Africa) but the "micro" SIM is the 1 used exclusively by Apple on iPhones & other iDevices but Sony is also jumping into that. bandwagon cause I seen some of them at a few VodaShops & MTN stores. Well, in terms of functionality I'd personally buy this (midrange)mobile or the Sony Xperia L for size & everyday use than the flagships & then have a tablet for videos & web.
I'm really happy buying this phone since december.
Total apps 107 (47 games about 10 are 1GB++, 15 social and media, 45 tool apps) wtih internal memory free 2.26GB and with 32 GB external with no degradation of perfomance with active 5 pages on home screen.
So happy :D :D :D

The is very little difference between them when you compare the specifications:
Personally, I prefer the S3 Mini simply because it has a Super AMOLED screen whereas the Grand has TFT. That gives the i8190 a 223 ppi against the 187 ppi on the Grand. Also, the Mali-400 chip is superior to the Broadcom used in the Grand.
However, the Grand wins on the camera, 8Mp compared to 5Mp on the S3, video at 1080p compared to 720p, TV Out, and a larger battery.
It comes down to personal choice, but my goes on the S3.
Andy, 18 May 2013Right about 8Gb internal memory. But when told about 8Gb, people would think it is the memory ... moreYou are correct. Available memory for use should be mentioned. The 8gb/16gb description is deceptive.

Samsung can't do that because it would be false advertising.
Each country has different carriers, and each carrier alters the Firmware to suit them, so the file size changes again. The UK Firmware is 1.28Gb before it goes to the carriers, who each add their own bloatware to it, so the size is never consistant.
Freefaller™, 15 May 2013Let's clear up the matter of the memory. The Galaxy S3 Mini DOES have 8Gb of internal memory.... moreRight about 8Gb internal memory. But when told about 8Gb, people would think it is the memory available for them to use. So phone companies should mention the quantity of available memory, which is the only thing relevant for users.
