Bought from Dubai for AED 1300 (Rs.19500)
Most of the reviews in the internet weren't that encouraging, but still I went for this phone, because I liked it by its looks,specs and price.
Smooth interface, Camera is more than awesome for such a phone. Pop-up video play gives you the feeling of using a "premium" phone. S-Voice takes a tad bit longer to respond, but is near to accurate almost always.
Battery life is really good. 6 hours internet browsing, 2 hour calls, 1 hour video playback and 5 hours music playback) didn't empty the batter, and that too, WITHOUT activating any Power-save options.
Browsing is good, helps you to utilize the maximum potential of your service provider's network speed.
Really loud and clear loudspeaker. Ability to play many heavy-memory consuming-HD games smoothly.
In fact, you won't regret buying this mobile.
To those who come arguing with benchmark scores and stuff like ppi, etc, GET A LIFE!
In real life scenarios, no one is gonna measure the number of pixels or do extreme testing and all. In fact NO ONE will even use the phone to its MAX potential.
So if anyone has plans on getting this phone. Go for it! (Y)

This is a fantastic phone! I had it now for about 2 months now and it is a beautiful looking phone and it performs well - I'm not a game freak so I use it for the basics (phone, camera, browsing, texting, music, etc.) Just wish that the battery could last a bit longer, but I'm using a battery saver app and it lasts about 2.5 days max. I would recommend this phone to anyone.
Samsung Galaxy Slll mini is great and is definitely the best smart phone I have ever seen. Even though is does not have the screen, camera and processor of the Slll, it is still an excellent phone and I will certainly recommend it to anybody. Great work SAMSUNG!
I like this phone, it's far better than Galaxy R or S2 that i had used for one year...first reason it's really handy and slim, have smart/attractive look...but what to know how to move storage application to SD card as i did with previous phone...
I bought my mini about 3 weeks back. On the average it has jammed once every day.I have not installed any game, programme or stored any song etc. I have been using it as a simple phone. Any advice?

main problem of this phone is battery backup should be 2100 mAh battery 1500 mAh battery is not not enough
It doesn't have Adobe Flash but can you open flash website with the HTML5 phone browser?
(I'm not talking about play the video on the web or play flash game but to open the website that's made with flash)
grand / gs2 plus with broadcom Chipset is much prefer for higher data speed, 1080hd video recording and playback, better battery conservation.
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2013No it will not worked, like all other JB android devise, stock rom does not allowed moving app... morewell,app2sd is an app that just move apps only to sd. but the data still remain in usb storage which is internal.
i choose to install apps in internal but their data was stored in external sd card using GL to SD. Now i've got total 73 apps with 8HD games which 3 of them are 1GB++. if u find it confusing, just try and gain experience from gl to sd about how it works and finally u understand. must be rooted though.
