Samsung Galaxy S III mini Review

The time of “mini” models have revived again with Galaxy S3 Mini. Previously, Nokia launched N97 mini, Sony Ericsson X10 mini, and now Samsung is taking its turn. Samsung has released the mini version and now it is expected to be seen in Pakistan in near future at a very affordable price. With Galaxy SIII smashing away all that comes in its way in terms of price, specifications and features, its mini model is going to be out there to make things even better for Samsung sales. With most of the features and specification from its tweaked up brother SIII, the Samsung SIII mini price in Pakistan is going to give a lot in lot less making this one hell of a phone.

The Galaxy S III mini is intended to offer simpler specs, smaller size and above all cheaper in price than the flagship model. Design and color however, have been kept similar which obviously is loved by S III fans in Pakistan. With the same “inspired by nature” theme, the user experience turns out to be identical. So it is definitely made for you if you are having budget concern but you are fascinated by the original Galaxy S III. The best thing to cheer about S III Mini is the same software, which is called 4.1 Jelly Bean version of android out of the box that was also launched in the revised model of Galaxy S III a few weeks before SIII mini was announced. It also offers Samsung’s TouchWIZ UI overlay same as in its elder model.

So what made Samsung reduce the price of Galaxy S III through “mini”? Well, there a number of elements of flagship phone which have been simplified in Galaxy S III Mini. These are screen and casing size, processor and memory and multimedia. The Mini S III has standard resolution of 800x480px and diagonal size is 4.0in, which is considerably lower than the original SIII, but still gives a beating to Apple’s latest role model iPhone 5. The processor is almost half of its leading model with 1 GHZ 2-core from ST-Ericsson. Similarly memory is somehow same as processor starting from 8GB to 16GB while in the leading phone, it was 16 to 64GB. Beside these changes, the locations of internal parts have also been swapped. Flash location is beneath camera module now. The memory card slot has now gone under the battery which is somehow inconvenient. Considering its own low memory, the hot-swappable option was highly expected in S3 Mini.

Overall, with the fact that SIII mini is a miniature model compared to its super hero brother SIII, still it is up for a tough competition against some of the hottest phones out there. This fact makes Samsung SIII Mini price in Pakistan the main attraction factor for millions of people who are just dying to get their hands on this phone.
