While this miniature version does not include features as impressive as the original Galaxy S III, it still has enough power to hold its own. It includes a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 1GB RAM, and 8GB or 16GB of internal memory. That being said, we wish Samsung did not systematically downgrade everything and at least retained some of the original features of the bigger S III, like its 8-megapixel and 1080 video recorder. Here, we only have a 5-megapixel camera and a 720p video camera.
If Samsung's claim is accurate, the Galaxy S III mini and its (1500mAh) battery should be powerful-enough for 850 minutes of talk time, a lot of talk time!
Weighing only 120 grams, the Samsung Galaxy S III mini is lighter than the iPhone 4S.

Of course, it doesn't offer as many features as the latest iPhone (the "4S"), but since it only weighs 120 grams, it is more lightweight than the iPhone 4S (which weighs in at 140 grams).

Its 9.9 mm body makes it quite thinner than average for a bar phone.
It boasts a hefty internal memory (16000MB/8000MB), but it may sometimes be more interesting to buy a phone with an included memory card instead, since the memory card can then be reused in a future cell phone.
It accepts two SIM cards, which lets you hop from one network to another if you own two SIM cards.

It's great that the Samsung Galaxy S III mini can record fancy 1280 x 720 videos, but we're surprised we didn't find any sign of the Galaxy S III mini sporting an HDMI port (which comes in handy to watch HD videos on your shiny HDTV without having to move them first to your computer).
