Review Samsung S3 Mini GT-I8190 Smartphone

 

Mini-size, maxi-performance? Samsung introduces a new compact ver

compact and lightweight; AMOLED display: bright and contrast rich; Use of Android 4.1.1; many apps available; main camera (720p videos, 5 megapixel, LED-flashlight); battery life

Transmitting and receiving performance only average; performance not very high; only 12 month warranty; front camera

Current mid-range smartphones with Android 4.x. Among others, the Google Nexus 4 and the HTC One S are strong competitors.

Crysis 3 Benchmarked

 

Avant-garde After gamers had a somewhat disappointing experience with Crysis 2, Crytek pulled out all the stops for their new FPS. The third title in the series is supposed to present a perfect mix of the first two parts, offering a full Crysis...

Considering nothing but the technical aspect of the game, the game is excellent on almost all levels. Crysis 3 shines with breathtaking visuals, which makes it clear that Crytek takes the PC platform quite seriously. In terms of gameplay, too, the...

Samsung Galaxy S III Mini (AT&T)

 

The AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III Mini is a decent entry-level Android smartphone with an affordable price, but it doesn't come close to matching its full-sized namesake.

Comfortable form factor. Affordable. Responsive and stable

Lower resolution, PenTile display. Mediocre call quality

While it makes obvious concessions for size and price, the HTC One Mini is, at the very least, a faithful miniaturization of the company's flagship One. The same cannot be said for the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini, which shares little DNA with its...

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

 

One dollar on contract. That's pretty much all you need to know about why AT&T is selling an Android phone that's a year old, and why anyone would choose the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini over many other "minis" -- the HTC One Mini , Motorola Droid Mini , and...

The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini delivers Android 4.2, 4G LTE, NFC, and a solid 5-megapixel camera for just $1 on contract.

Mediocre call quality and internal speed hiccups are two trade-offs for the price; you'll especially notice shutter lag.

First-time smartphone buyers get a lot for a little with Samsung's year-old Galaxy S3 Mini, but keep in mind that this is no high-end performer.

Samsung Galaxy S III mini review: a small Galaxy with few stars

 

Samsung made a bold move when it announced the Galaxy S III mini. Here was an Android phone with the potential to take the iPhone 5 head-on. While the

Excellent battery life ; Same software experience as the GS3 ; Attractive, modern design

Slower performance than on the GS3 ; No NFC or S Beam ; Mediocre display

If you were hoping for a mini Galaxy S III, this isn't it. If, instead you fancy a decent mid-spec phone with a modern design, this is a great choice.

Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III mini review: The Halfling

 

Design and software experience coming straight from the most successful droid of all times, packed in a shell that's far easier to pocket. Now, who wouldn't want some of that? The Samsung Galaxy S III mini is the company's most premium compact Android...

Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4.0" 16M-color Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of WVGA (480 x 800 pixel) resolution ; Android OS 4.1 Jelly Bean with Nature UX ; 1 GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU,...

Pricey ; Pentile matrix display ; No 1080p video recording ; No dedicated camera key

Is the Samsung I8190 a shrunk-down Galaxy S III? It vastly depends on your understanding of a mini version, but we believe that it isn't. It's more of a Galaxy S Advance repackaged in an Galaxy S III-styled body and with a tad extra RAM. It's not a bad...

Samsung Galaxy S III mini preview: First look

 

The Samsung I8190 Galaxy S III mini is like a nostalgic return to the roots for the highly successful Galaxy S franchise. Quite similar to the original Galaxy S specs-wise, the new SIII mini aims to get as much of the Galaxy S III's personality into a...

The Samsung Galaxy S III mini is designed to bring most of the goodies of the Galaxy S III in a significantly smaller form-factor. However, the S III mini is more intriguing than your typical mid-range model, as it has the privilege of being named...

Elegant and compact design ; Comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Video recording is so-so ; The physical buttons could be better

The Samsung Galaxy S III mini is a lovely mainstream smartphone. All of a sudden, the Galaxy S III's “nature-inspired” design looks and feels right in your hand. The device is easy to hold and operate, while its 4-inch screen is big enough to provide a...
