Galaxy SIII mini resembles Galaxy SIII’s minimal and organic design inspired by nature. Its human-centric nature provides an ergonomic and comfortable experience with enhanced usability. Its comfortable grip and gentle curves deliver a natural feel and design.
Rather than being pitched as a high-end smartphone for those who don’t want the 4,8-inch display of the S3, the S3 mini is actually a midrange smartphone (but with a fairly premium price). With its 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel rear camera and 8GB of internal storage (on the entry level model), the S3 mini simply is nowhere nearly in the same league as the best that Samsung and its rivals offer.
Although the Samsung device shares the same screen dimensions as the iPhone 5, it’s 800×480-pixel resolution pales in comparison. The same can be said of most of the S3 mini’s specifications, whether comparing it to its larger sibling or Apple’s latest offering.
The S3 minis screen, however, is a far cry from the lush 720p offering on the S3. Offering 800×480 pixels, the S3 mini’s display is average, regardless of its Amoled pedigree. If you’re used to the resolution of any of the major manufacturers’ flagship handsets, the S3 mini’s display will disappoint. If you’re a first-time smartphone user, you’re less likely to notice – until you compare it to someone else’s top-end device.
