This would be a decent phone if it was priced somewhere around 200 Euros for 400 it's to expensive for those specs
bunty pahuja , 11 Oct 2012there is no graphics processor (GPU).There is, most probably Mali400.
this is what I have been waiting for! Lets face it, it is a phone, not a tennis racket, so the size is what matters. for other things there are notebooks and Tabs and Pads.
Who cares that the specs are much too close to samsung galaxy I9000 - 2010 model (which i had and was the best phone - too bad it got stolen) and now im waiting for price on this just to buy it.
I cant understand why would anyone buy anything over 4" as a phone.
AnonD-70782, 11 Oct 2012Galaxy S Advance is even better than this..it's the same , but the S III mini is thicker but comes with jelly bean
i think this phone is meant to replace the S advance since the S advance is cheap right now , so they made this one to raise the prices again :@
Where is the GPU...???!!! Or is there no GPU available on this model...?! Is the chipset inferior to NovaThor U8500...???!!! God... this phone looks like aa failure from day 1 ...
What the ...!
They think that will die if they won't announce a phone every month !
The specs are exactly same as Galaxy S Advance. Except the chipset and the lack of a GPU in S3 mini.
The S Advance costs 280 EUR against 400 EUR for this.
Why would anyone pay 120 EUR extra for just a 'premium name'?
Check the specs side-by-side. They are almost a mirror-image.
People are much smarter while buying phones now a days and hardly anyone would fall for such a cheap gimmick.
bunty pahuja , 11 Oct 2012there is no graphics processor (GPU).Who said that?
Well there is GPU, which is Mali 400 Single Core.
All ST Ericsson Dual Core chipsets have Mali 400 GPU.
rofl 480x800 resolution in 2012 ? hello this is what my old desire had over 2 years ago.. I think many people will be very fooled thinking it has the same specs as the S3 but its so much worse i dont see the need in this phone, it should not be called s3 mini at all.
Piece of nonsense. Why would they give it the S3 name when it's not remotely close to the S3 except for the wallpaper? I would have bought this phone if it was a mini version of the S3 with the same specs.
Why would anybody want this phone? We already have the S2 and S1. If I should get a smaller phone than my S3 I would take the HTC one S.
Galaxy S3 is Samsung's version of iphone 5. It goes neck to neck with iphone 5. Screen size is same and other hardware specs are similar or better than iphone5. Offcourse this phone is inferior to GS2. SIEMENS was playing with very high hardware specifications. They needed something to fight at the level of iphone 5. Here is the SAMASUNG's answer. Iphone5 has specs of a middle range phone and GS3 mini proves it. This phone is made for those ladies who cannot handle a screen size of 4.8 inches. Samsung has thrown a screen size similar to that of iphone 5 to give small phone lovers a thought.
