The scam of the century. This is a simple redesign of the galaxy s advance with a big price increase to further increase its margins. The only advantage : it has jelly bean out of the box. But there are mid-range smartphone as well but much cheaper even with competition
Android OS, v4.1 (Jelly Bean) Dual-core CPU
v4.0 -Bluetooth Internal - 8/16 GB, 1 GB RAM wifi speed 14.4 Mbps WTF the phone gona be rock man
Is this mobile will only be available in white color ??? not black ???
NEWS : UK Expansys release date
Anonymous, 18 Oct 2012Correct. I have an s2 that has better specs. That killed my interest on this s3 mini.It's just... more gs3 mini cheap status has already spoilt my mood even to buy gs3.
Now Lumia 920 will solved that problem when available by mid-November.
This is only for outside looks,
Inside software quality is very bad, low-end standard !
Padmanabhan, 18 Oct 2012better to buy a samsung galaxy s2Correct. I have an s2 that has better specs. That killed my interest on this s3 mini.It's just a cute s3-looking phone. Nothing better, just the jellybean.
What sells me on this phone, vs the htc desire X, is Jelly bean... I'm a sucker for Jelly bean.
I am looking for a good 4" display dual core phone for quiet some time now. I always thought of buying Galaxy S Advance But 2 things kept me reluctant.
1. The Head phone jack at the Bottom
2. The thin low quality back cover.
And I always thought, If at leat get the headphone jack on top, I would have bought SGSA. That Issue will be solved with S3 Mini. But at the cost of Ambient light sensor and glossy, slippery back cover. Waiting for the launch, review & pricing. I personally is Expecting it to below be 21.5K in India.
Wil97, 18 Oct 2012It's not worth it. but if you compare between the two, the S3 mini definitely winIf only both of them selling at same price point, go for S3 mini. IMO, I don't really sure why people go for this phone. We always have choice when choosing Android phone. I bought Xperia Sola and i will choose sola over s3 mini if s3 mini cost 10$ more.
Austin Deane, 18 Oct 2012Upon first impressions, this device is very underwhelming. With this device, Samsung is trying... moreYou know what, this is the spec list that Samsung should put on this device.
-4" SuperAMOLED Plus at 480x800px
-1.2ghz dual core S4/1.2ghz Exynos quad
-8mp cam (1080p video)
just put those thing on the current S3 mini chassis, and I'll say it's worth 400 EUR.
