Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini – Not up-to its Big Brother !!!

The Mini version does not have a lot of specs as compared to the big brother. Though the Mini comes with Android Jelly Bean, some of the Samsung, or precisely the Galaxy fans might be disappointed with what’s inside.

There is no quad-core processor or the HD display that Samsung Galaxy S3 has. Moreover the 5 MP camera looks childish as compared to the predecessor, Samsung galaxy S2. The S3 Mini is lighter on your pocket and easier to hold, with the dimensions of 121.55 x 63 x 9.85mm and weighing around 111.5g, it is a little thicker compared to S3.

Samsung’s very own Google Voice Actions has been incorporated in the Mini version. Samsung Galaxy S3 does not have LTE connectivity but provides superb 3G connectivity and comes with Bluetooth 4.0.

The Money Factor.

The Galaxy S3 Mini has been priced at £298.8, which is somewhat high, but the official price is yet to be confirmed. If the price turns out to be correct then, Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini will have to face some serious competition from some better and power-packed devices like HTC One S and Sony Xperia S.
