Samsung Galaxy S III mini Review of The Pros And Cons
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.
Samsung says that the Samsung Galaxy S III mini provides a talk time of 850 minutes. That's significantly higher than average.
At only 120 grams, the Samsung Galaxy S III mini is more lightweight than the latest iPhone.

It may not have features as shiny as the iPhone 4s (the latest model), but at only 120 grams, it is lighter than the iPhone 4S (which weighs in at 140 grams).

The Samsung Galaxy S III mini features a hefty user memory (16000MB/8000MB), but it may sometimes be better to buy a phone with an included memory card instead, since the memory card can then be reused in a future cell phone.
With its two (2) SIM card slots, you can swtich between two network cards on the fly.

It's great that the Samsung Galaxy S III mini can record high-resolution 1280 x 720 movies, but we were disappointed not to find any evidence of the Galaxy S III mini featuring an HDMI port (which is convenient to watch HD videos on your shiny HDTV.)
