Another tip about S-Voice. By default, when you press the Home button, the phone waits for a second press to activate S-Voice, which causes a slight lag.
Open your app drawer and select S-Voice. Press the left soft button and select 'Settings'. The second option down is 'Open via the home key'. Untick that option and you will find that it speeds your Homescreen up a little (reduces lag).

Better still, goto Settings/Developer options. Tap on it and turn it on. Scroll down to Apps and you will see the heading 'Do not keep activities'. Tick that box ON.
funkyboj, 23 Mar 2013Ok about the people asking for the battery life...when i got the phone with the stock apps on ... morereally? my siii mini just shown 8% for android os. what is that supposed to mean? I dont have any apps installed? p
*PS the percentage has nothing to do with what apps are still running.
Is S3 mini with 16GB internal memory is indeed available in market. I am from Dubai, UAE. Search in all authorized outlets and couldnt find the spec.

well here's a little idea that stupid but works.
Remember after you open games, and other apps, after u close it, go to menu -> edit and tap an app that just you used, drag it in on app info. press force stop. that'll help a lot
Ok about the people asking for the battery life...when i got the phone with the stock apps on it,the battery lasted at least 2 days of medium usage(phone calls,checking mails,listening some music,texting sms,some internet)...but as you install 3rd party apps some of them may impact deeply on the battery life...
for example,when i installed the Dropbox app, it made a huge difference, my battery go drain very fast since it wasn't letting my phone to go to deep sleep,was keeping the phone AWAKE all the time...overnight my battery drainage was between 3-5% and after i installed that app it was draining my battery for over 30-35% overnight(i uninstalled that app and the battery came back to normal,thank you Freefaller,he actually helped me to solve it)...
So stop saying the battery is bad,since it can and it will give you at least 1 day of heavy usage(2days of medium usage) without any problems...the problem is in us,we install 100 apps and when we don't use them we let most of them keep running on the background thus the battery will drain fast of course...
Check out on the settings-battery,your Android OS should be between 18-24%,if it is above that,then a 3rd party app that you have installed is sucking your battery dry...also click on the graphical picture and there you can see how much your phone is actually "AWAKE",if you see a long blue line,then your phone is awake all the time=its not going to deep sleep at all=drains the battery all the time=some 3rd app is responsible...
another thing to check is your S Voice...if your S Voice is set to activate to a voice command that means your phone is active all the time,listening all the time...disable that

For example, turn off the motion features (or some of them) since you can do things without them. Set the screen-time activity by 15 seconds. Things like that. Open task manager and end all applications that you don't need. There are some apps that can do task kill and save power. Based on my experience, if you use S III Mini in messaging and calling purposes only, battery can lasts for about two days.

I've noticed it as well lately that even though the phone is not on mobile data, it drains battery so badly, after 8 hours only 45% left.
Had a few short calls and 1 text as well.
I've only had it 4 days and I'm really thinking to take it back where I got it..
