  1. This look advantageous for me, I just love wide screens though I always get confused on add ons. Additional features is just a waste for me, my purpose is just to call or text but i love its looks.

    • Thats ok, although the use of smartphone nowadays goes beyond just call and text messages, many of them are incorporated with GPS, that serves as a mappping tool, some with NFC system for payment, smartphones has become a life tool, predicted to replace desktop and laptops in the future. Thanks for dropping by.

  2. The Samsung Galaxy S iii Mini is packed with updated features, user friendly design app and sleek style casing for customers.It is gaining much popularity all over the globe with fascinating design for customers of all ages.

  3. I think the idea of the Samsung Galaxy III mini is great! I noticed a trend of how 10 years ago our phones were getting smaller and smaller and now they only get bigger and bigger. I for one was looking for a reversal of this trend and downsizing our mobile devices as long as the performance and features remain top quality.

    • That’s how technology works, few years ago, the trends was bigger phones with Nokia leading the market with lots of bigger phones. But now, everything has changed!

      Thanks for your comment 🙂

  4. I love the way they made and i thought of buying S III now after seeing Mini i changed my mind . S III Mini looks very cute with more features than BIG one …… When it ill be on market ?

  5. I was looking for wide screen Smartphone. One of my friend is having Samsung Galaxy SIII just liked it so much . I think will go for this amazing Samsung Galaxy SIII mini, its specifications are impressive.

  6. yes SG mini 3 is thebest 😉 and as was expected, Samsung launched Galaxy S III Mini is a smaller version and the weakest in terms of features of the phone Galaxy S III famous. The common denominator between the new phone and his older brother is approximately identical

    • Yea, the phone is cool, but my concern for Samsung is that will the S III mini be accepted coz it failed to replicate what is packed on the S III original.

  7. Samsung has boldly stepped out to make a mini version of Galaxy S3 but keeping it cheaper and more portable for those who like it small and portable. S3 mini has Jelly Bean which sure is a delight and it does come at a time when Apple has announced iPad mini. We have to see how the battle turns out to be..:)

    • Yea, Samsung has tried its best to satisfy its customers, though the mini S III refuse to pack the full features of the oringinal S III. Though it comes with cool features though.

  8. The features that is provided in this mobile is o some and it increase the productivity of a person , Samsung has launch a good product ..
