I like the phone, especially how fast it is. Extremely fast. Only complaint is the battery life, it can't go a day without running out of battery.
I've had so much trouble with this phone. For example, it has reset itself to factoryspecs three times! I lost everthing of notes, pictures, mail- and other settings.
I'm buying an Iphone now. I guess that's what it costs to get a good phone that works.
Is this a decent phone a guy that only wants to use the phone as a phone and surf a bit (Facebook, Whatsapp and normal internet surfing)and take family pics? I don't do gaming except play poker and billiards occasionally and I watch youtube vids a bit. I can pick it up for $150 and can't see many other options at that price range.
Trudie, 21 May 2014How can battery only last 7 hours.I don't like this phone at all.They should warn people about... moreits a good entry level phone, but standard its not on par with many of its competitors. I was dissatisfied with its memeory and obviously its bloatware, only solution was to root it.I see a few comments about battery life but when rooted you can increase battery power or increase graphics. I know many are hesitant to root your device, but I absolutely recommend it for the s3 mini if you want to make it better. you can even install custom roms, at the moment im running kit kat using a custom rom from cyanogen 11... but these are just my own views. use at own discretion.
Karim, 25 May 2014I'm 100% satisfied with this device :)I am 100% unsatisfied using this phone.
I am a picture of Samsung galaxy S3 mini while using kitkat.I want to see the difference between jellybean and kitkat....
AnonD-266310, 22 May 2014it's very good on systeme android 4.4.2 (kitkat)!!please send me link to instructions on how you upgraded yours to kitkat OS
How can battery only last 7 hours.I don't like this phone at all.They should warn people about this when selling this phone.Very unhappy customer.Do anyone know what I can do to get more battery life?
I really love this phone!!! I've had 2 of them and still using one. However... although it does everthing i need it to do AND more, the only thing which is heartbreaking is the battery life. You can literally be looking at your battery percent with WIFI on, brightness on high and you can see the battery going down 1% too often and it actually freaks you out haha.
Can i just say apart from the usual battery issue samsung phones are great!!

They would tell you "want kitkat buy a new phone", can afford "shut up & live with it".
Samsung is lying to their teeth when they forgo Kitkat update for reason of 1GB ram is apparently not enough. But I stumbled upon this about to be released Galaxy Ace Style just running 512mb Ram and its on Kitkat!
samsung your excuse is appallingly unacceptable. You have promised at lease Jelly Bean 4.2 but you didnt not deliver. Instead, you make us wait for Kitkat but then you dashed our hope for a speedy version because of shady reason.
Its about time to make a petition to samsung not to neglect their userbase.
Anonymous, 20 May 2014can you tell me where to get s3 mini
Probably some phone shop still selling outdated or obselete model..lol
S3 mini is already been replace by S4 mini since last year & soon will be replace by S5mini, why waste time getting such a old phone with zero firmware update.
Don't waste ur money, S3mini too outdated.
