AnonD-44586, 18 Feb 2013hey man, r u sure it plays mkv vids in stock player? plz, i need a confirmation, does it play... morei just tried to play mkv file on my s3mini(transfered via bluetooth,somehow it didnt wanted to transfer via usb)..its a sample Supernatural series video file 720p and it runs smooth with stock video player,but no audio since it says cant play DTS encoded audio...so i guess it plays 720p mkv files fine and the audio depends on the encoding...just get MX player or a converter for ur PC...i use the second,converting from 1.2GB mkv video file into 600MB MP4 file(duble less size,same crispness of the video since our native rez is 800x480,so no need of 1280x720)..i hope this helps...hmm,also on stock video player u can smoothly play 720p(1280x720) MP4 files
Instead of asking this same question again, and again, and AGAIN why don't you just Google it?
I did that and got the answer in about 5 seconds. In case you are too lazy to do that yourself I will answer it for you. NO you cannot play mkv files on a S3 without converting them to mp4 or avi format.
AnonD-44586, 18 Feb 2013hey man, r u sure it plays mkv vids in stock player? plz, i need a confirmation, does it play... morePositive. Though depending on the encoding, some mkv files are rather tricky to play. I am not an expert on the subject, and I simply shared my personal experience. So results may vary.
good features phones does not come in cheap price. if u want better go buy the expensive one. maybe ull be satisfy. peace!!!

The S3 Mini doesn't have auto brightness control but I would recommend 'Brightness Level' by Curvefish from Google Play Store.
I have tried a lot of apps and widgets that control the brightness but this widget is the best I have found so far.

I have Galaxy S3 Mini and want to install the new software update j... moreAm afraid that there is no update for your phone neither in the middeleast nor anywhere else, in fact each phone has its own update and that needs a big effort at samsung because of its long galaxy series especially with googls many updates and upgrades each year . I think samsung is working at older phones , so you should enjoy what you have and waiting for a while ( maybe months long) before an update for your phone is released , and may be newer and better than 4.1.2 . While that you could open the sgs3 mini page here in gsmarena from time to time and see wether the OS is upgradable or not ,my regards .

how many of you have the auto-brightness option?mine s3 mini doesn't have that option(and so far all the videos i have seen on yutube none had that ability), but today i ran into a dutch site video review and the hack his s3mini had the auto-brightness option!?!...so,is it maybe only the newer versions have this(i presume the NFC editions) or is it somewhat firmware/software upgradeable? i can see there are 2 sensors right next to the front camera, 1 i presume is proximity sensor and the second maybe non-functioning light-sensor or maybe the both sensors are proximity ones? are we maybe being scammed by samsung,the same phone,one with light-sensor and the others without?
