Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. Introduction. With the Samsung Galaxy S3 continuing to dominate the smartphone market, lining up as a true Android based rival to the i. Phone 5 (check out our i. Phone 5 vs Samsung Galaxy S3 piece), Samsung has looked to capitalise on the handsets success with the more accessible Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini. Sharing a number of design characteristics with its full- sized sibling, the 4- inch Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini features a reduced spec and lower price point than its predecessor, whilst maintaining some of the desirability and pleasingly curved aesthetics of the full sized model.
Despite the handset featuring a similar design to the high- end Samsung Galaxy S3, that is where the similarities between the two devices end. Tasked with bringing the S3 brand to a wider audience, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is designed to appeal to younger markets, with its heavily reduced specs sheet, and lower price point testament to this.
Playing host to a 1. GHz dual- core Cortex A9 processor, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini ticks all the boxes necessary to appease mid- market expectations, without ever standing out from the crowd. Available in Ceramic White and Pebble Blue colour options, the Mini adds 1. GB of RAM, a 1. 50. Ah battery and a 5- megapixel rear- mounted camera to the fray. What’s more, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini price tag does not help the handset separate itself from the competition either, with the not inconsiderable £2.
Pay- As- You- Go basis, seeing the device have the same impact on the wallet as the specs superior Google Nexus 4 and the Sony Xperia S. Unlike the Google Nexus 4 and Sony Xperia S, however, the S3 Mini does not have the same level of stand- out specs and performance capabilities that, on paper at least, offer reassurance in the handset’s potential. We take a closer look at how the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini stands up to the competition. SEE ALSO: All the latest on the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Design. Piggybacking on the success of its illustrious sibling, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini plays host to a number of design characteristics found on its big brother, whilst a smaller 4- inch screen makes the handset a more viable mid- market offering and one that will appeal to younger markets. Appearing as a shrunken rendition of its i.
Phone 5 rivalling counterpart, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini features the now recognisable pebble- esque curved edge design of the original Samsung Galaxy S3. Although a slightly curved, removable rear plate ensures the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini sits relatively comfortably within the hand, the device feels slightly undersized by modern standards.
Working in the handset’s favour, the S3 Mini, despite a predominately plastic construction, feels well pieced together for the most part, offering up little unwanted flex on unnerving creaking when put under stress. Lining up at just 9. Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is compact and well- balanced, with the modest weight distributed evenly throughout the handset.
Despite these largely pleasing aesthetics, however, the heavily rounded, almost bulbous base of the handset and its slick, glossed plastic finish mean the device can prove slightly difficult to grip on occasion. Shy on the physical buttons, the smooth edged finish of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is largely untainted, with just a trio of physical controls (power, volume and home), and a micro. USB charger port, located centrally on the handset’s base, detracting from the pleasing finish. Whilst the handset does not suffer from poorly placed controls, ensuring accidental presses of the power/sleep button are not performance depleting issues; the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini home button is not without its user aggrieving problems. With the physical home button proving a squat, squashed affair, the integral control option offers no height but plenty of width meaning that, during testing and general use, the button was overshadowed by our thumbs, an issue that caused the handset to become slightly troublesome and far natural to use. Further detracting from a natural user experience, the sub- sized nature of this home button gives the feeling that the button has been broken and only a fragment of its intended form remains, hardly the most comfortable of offerings.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Screen. Where the Samsung Galaxy S3 display is a 4. Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini screen falls dramatically short of the mark, with the 4- inch AMOLED offering providing a disappointingly low grade 8. Although we have come to expect a lot of Samsung’s displays, the low res offering fitted to the Samsung Galaxy S3 is significantly below par when compared with its similarly priced rivals, such as the 1. Google Nexus 4 screen, and one which fails to appease itself to continued video playback or app- based game playing. With the handset’s inbuilt light sensor proving effective at offering the optimal screen brightness to the surrounding settings, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini screen also handles its own when in use in bright outdoor environments of direct sunlight, suffering only minor levels of performance depleting, eye- straining glare.
As tends to be the case with AMOLED screens, the colours and contrast ratios offered by the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini screen appear over exaggerated and far from natural, an issue that, although quickly overlooked through continued use, does detract from and diminish the subtleties of a high quality image. When comparing the screen with the Clear.
Black options found on recent Nokia handsets, such as the Nokia Lumia 8. Samsung branded device. Further compounding the handset’s poor screen to levels of pure annoyance, viewing web pages and text- heavy documents on the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini screen results in visibly pixelated content which fails to encourage continued use. Although this issue will not prevent essential use of the handset’s core features, unlike a device such as the i.
Pad mini, which pairs a less than pristinely sharp display with a raft of performance enhancing features, the S3 Mini sees its screen line up as just one of a number of core issues that fail to inspire use in the device. That said, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini screen is not without its positives. In terms of responsiveness and transitions the device is second to none. Proving highly responsive to all touch based commands, from single finger actions to more advance features like pinch- to- zoom, the screen of the S3 sibling helps create a predominately immersive and seamless user experience when transitioning between home screens, menus and in- app pages. Whilst the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini screen would be a welcome addition to a handset with an entry- level price point, given the device’s near £2. PAYG billing, the 8.

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini review. The announcement that Samsung has sold the most phones, and in particular more than double the amount of i. Phones, will no doubt be of little shock. The Samsung Galaxy S3 was the most popular selling smartphone in Q3 2.
Samsung Galaxy S2. One of the secrets of Samsung's success has to be the quality of its devices, but another is that it has targeted every corner of the market.
The Samsung Galaxy range has hit every price point, from the super- budget Galaxy Y to the highest end phablet Galaxy Note 2, and the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini here falls somewhere in the middle. Samsung will look to the success of the Galaxy S3, as the Galaxy S3 Mini - also referred to as the Galaxy SIII Mini - comes up against the newly launched LG made Google Nexus 4, that has completely rewritten the book for mid- priced smartphones. It also faces some stiff competition from more established handsets such as the HTC One S, and the ageing yet still very popular Samsung Galaxy S2.
Remarkably, like the Nexus 4, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini comes in with a similar spec sheet as the i. Phone 5. But it hits the price point of the two years older i. Phone 4, at £3. 15 (around AU$4. US$4. 80) SIM- free, or free on monthly contracts from around £2.
AU$3. 8/US$4. 0) per month in the UK. Design and feel. After a quick glance at the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini you'd be forgiven for mistaking it for its larger, higher end brother, and that is in no way a bad thing. The plastic feeling that we mentioned wouldn't appeal to all on the S3 feels right at home on the S3 Mini. It even comes in the same Pebble blue and Marble white variants that the Samsung Galaxy S3 launched with.
Measuring 1. 22. 5. Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is by no means the largest phone, and it sits very comfortably in the hand.
The 1. 20g (4. 2. There's no doubting that the Galaxy S3 Mini looks superb, its size being the only initial indication that it wasn't intended to be a market- leading phone. In fact, we are left wondering where the compromises have been made. The two main areas are the processor and the screen, with the dual- core 1.
GHz chipset and a 4- inch WVGA resolution screen being a lot less spectacular than the Samsung Galaxy S3. We can forgive minor details like this, but given the 1. GHz dual chip in the HTC One S, and the quad core power behind the Google Nexus 4, we're a little more sceptical. Elsewhere, Samsung has provided the Galaxy S3 Mini with the Android 4. Jelly Bean operating system, as well as a 5. MP rear camera with flash, and a VGA front camera. As we mentioned, the Galaxy S3 Mini sits very well in the hand, its smaller size meaning that it is a lot more comfortable to hold than the Samsung Galaxy S3.
The lock/power button sits on the right side, with the volume key directly opposite on the left. The phone's small size makes them all very easy to hit one handed. The capacitive soft keys are out in traditional Samsung style, the Back and Menu buttons sitting either side of an elongated Home button just under the screen.
Samsung has kept this layout since the original Galaxy S, and we are big fans, since it means that unlike the newer Nexus phones - the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 4 - there is no searching for the on- screen keys. Elsewhere on the front of the Galaxy S3 Mini are the speaker and the front- facing VGA camera for Facebook profile pictures, as well as video chats through the likes of Skype. The two main ports sit at opposite ends of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, with the micro USB sat at the bottom (next to the microphone), and the 3. This again follows the standard Samsung layout shown on other Galaxy devices, and we've never had a problem with it. The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini comes with an advantage over other mid- range devices, since it has a removable battery cover, the Google Nexus 4 being the most notable exception. The battery cover makes up the entirety of the back of the Galaxy S3 Mini, and sits tightly on the back, so there's no chance of it popping off accidentally.
The back of the phone is a smart white (or blue) affair, housing the 5. MP camera sensor, a small flash, the loud speaker and the obligatory Samsung branding.
Hidden behind the cover is the 1. Ah removable battery, which many heavy users will consider essential. Elsewhere is the SIM port (standard, not micro. SIM), and the micro. SD slot. Unfortunately the micro.
SD isn't hot- swappable, which was a little frustrating. It's located behind the battery, and isn't a pop- in slot. This means needing to lay the micro. SD card flat against the Galaxy S3 Mini, and pushing it in, which can get a bit fiddly. In all we were very impressed with the design of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, but we were more impressed with its more powerful predecessor, the Galaxy S3. The curved design sits very comfortably in the hand, and the smaller stature makes it easier to hold, with every part of the phone accessible one handed.
For those looking for a stylish phone, who don't want a massive screen, a massive weight or a massive price tag, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini makes a more than promising first impression.
