at last, samsung officially announced that s3 mini will get an update for kitkat this first half of the year.
So if i can choose between mini s3 or mini s4 which one is better and why ? what are the pros & cons ?
Cyanogen 11 fits right on mine perfectly with Kitkat.
Although cyanogen is known to trim and cut the corners of things. This is a sure fit for 4.4 If its fake then. I guess the games I'm playing that require 4.4 aren't supposed to work :p And they do.
I used the fone for only four days and later it was written on the fone invalid IMEI and the network is not working too, i have sent to repairs severally but to no avail..
Pls help me to get the network working. Thank you
locked2u, 27 Mar 2014What about official new update for S3 mini, 4.3 or kikat?No update for international version i8190N, that why Samsung launch S3mini value edition.
I repeat S3Mini will nver ever get any firmware update to 4.3 or 4.4 so stop asking, if you have buy it yet please don't waste your money.

can anyone help me been trying to get dstv mobile streaming but to no avail is it compatible ?
Andrew, 26 Mar 2014What is the name of that clearing program?Clean Master (can be download from google play).
Upon download go to App manager - Pre-installed apps - then it would allowed you to choose which apps to disable.
Don't worry i am not getting any benefit or $$$ from the apps download..lol
For those who found this phone slow esp heavy game, currently i am using clean master app manager to disable some useless apps so that more RAM r free, seem like working, no harm trying.
It has got major signal problems. It displays as "Not Registered on Network ".
I have been using it for the last 3 months
I used this phone since early this year. Many telcos are providing free or at a minimal price if you sign up a contract.
This phone is more suitable for women with smaller hands although it is not too hard to type. It is easier to type on this 4 inch screen than the 7 inch tab.
This phone is fairly adequate despite the low price nowadays. It does not "hang" as often as my Tab 2.
Voice quality and phone reception are OK.
The camera takes photos with very nice color. The auto white balance works very well. The settings for the camera is reset no matter how you customize it, so this is the main fault I have with this phone. Something wrong because you cannot customize the settings as it should. The image sharpness of the 5 MP camera is clearly inferior to a 5 MP sony phone that I have. It may got to do the the lens, or pixel size. Despite not so sharp, I am happy with the color rendition and the many creative modes.
The loudspeaker isn't very loud.
Web surfing is not the fastest but very much faster than my company BB curve which I am tempted to throw in the sea.
I was on a plane journey and I left the phone in my front loose pocket. The screen cracked. I don't remember bending it or crushing it. So the screen is not very crack resistant. I can still use it but replacing the screen will cost more than the phone.
One thing I do not like about the phone (or perhaps with other Samsungs) is the amount of bloatwares. I don't need all these unnecessary apps. I hate it when manufacturers pushed these to you.
Battery life is actually OK if you dont use it that often. If put on 2G or on wifi.
3G will drain battery fast. The screen brightness can be set to very low and still be good indoors, saves battery. But this phone's screen is almost useless in bright sunlight despite setting it to max.
I don't recommend this phone if you are a frequent web surfer or gamer. The battery is not long lasting enough if you use it often and the screen is not big enough.
If you want a smallish, sleek phone with most of the feature, this is a reasonable choice. It is probably very cheap now.
