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.
what the funny, I think Samsung is making fool for the mid range devices,what is new in dis hand set,only this device is look like s3,n s dios,n only nfc is extra features added in dis device... 5mega pixel is common this days, expecting 8 mega pixel camera,1080 hd video recording,1.2ghz snapdragon scorpion processor,dual core, and the price around 24000rs, this all the v should expect
i thought that it would be replacing galaxy s2....but s2 is far better than this at a low price.......
Disappointing. The phone is priced at $550 which is quiet a big price for a (mid range) mid range phone. The specs aren't quiet exciting. And it is a very bad decision. For all those who wanted to buy this phone(Including me) will be really disappointed. We can get a htc Wp 8s at a reasonable price(only 370$)which is a new gen snapdragon S4 phone with windows 8.
Its like the ace2 but i'd say samsung is stinjy
Samsung never give even 12 mp front camera,ram only 1gb usually,always give mali(week graphics)
they always only give quad core the most no dual core and never cards or chip like tegra3 for example
If these specs are true - the Galaxy S Advance i9070 is even better phone with NovaThor U8500 instead of U8420 :))))
They shd hav upgraded Ace 2 rather then coming up with S3 mini.... Can't see any reason for this product ... It would be a success only if its price is lower... Rather it might bring a feeling of dissatisfaction for ppl who are having original s3 as mini share its name... so that feeling of having "the original S3" would be lost somewhere...
