Very disappointed with Samsung, was hoping S3 mini to be as powerful as S3 (8 mp Camera, Quard core cpu, Ambient light sensor)....
This is actually downgrading S3 personality !!.
I tried s3 for some time, found it too good but returned back only because i found it too big for my hand and pocket... was waiting for s3 min.
To me a mini version are a smaller version of the big one with same spec,,if its got different spec its a different model range alltogether..Thats the buzz getting all the top spec into a mini version not just downsizing spec as well anyone can do that..Bloody waste of time me waiting for this,,proper SGS3 it is then.
why are you people voting this phone so highly?? what has it got to deserve those high values?
Arch, 13 Oct 2012 gs3 mini is the worse Samsung galaxy S3 series..... This isn't the GS3 series. It's totally different.
kjl, 13 Oct 2012battery should be minimum 1700 mA.NovaThor chipsets are good for power saving. This battery is good.
All the Android phone manufacturers seem to follow this herd mentality. The specs of all the flagships look very similar to each other, screen size of 4.6" to 4.8", similar quad core processors (except Sony who is stuck at dual core), same camera specs of 8 mpx (with a few exceptions)...
And then there is the mid market phones with single/dual core processors, 4 inch VGA screen and 5 mps camera.
Yaaawwnnn... No one tries to innovate anymore.
This phone has the potential to break that mold but Samsung decided to stick to the herd.
It is time someone realized not everyone who wants a small phone wants a low budget one. So stop making the smaller phones fat, slow and with outdated technology. How about making a really slim (8mm) phone with a HD 4" screen, 8 mpx camera and decent processor ?
with that specs i might as well buy an SGS2 or an Atrix, almost same specs for virtually half the price LOL
Droid Terminator, 12 Oct 2012Oh man! Why are you trying to defend this overprice phone. This phone doesn't deserved to be c... moreThe Razr M isn't a Mini version. I would like to see the Razr M Mini's specs when if will ever come. What do you want from a Mini phone? Mini version are supposed to not be high-end, so this is meant to be a cheaper version of the GS3. Anyway, Samsung made a mistake with it's price.
This fone is going to made a big hits.
inspite of its inferior software quality with the big title gs3.... series.
What, is Samsung hoping the average consumer will not compare the specs to the S III? And thus the buyer imagines their holding a model akin to the S III but smaller? Clever marketing, to be sure. But what a risk; and, in my opinion, somewhat deceptive. With this move I have lost a bit of respect for Samsung. I would choose the Galaxy S II. And it can be found for a lower price!
