Rated 3 out of 5 by DaPsy Battery life is a disaster
I came from a galaxy gt i5800, so the upgrade to the S3 mini is a big step forwards, or should be. But, the maximum time I did with a full battery is 13 hours, and then battery need to be recharged. I didn't even call with my phone, I only used it a couple of times to check facebook over 3G, that's it. If a phone can't even do 24 hours it's a waste of money. I always keep my old 5800 with me, in case I need to call, when this one goes down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fiza great phone
Great phone. features are good specially I like its smooth touch. But there is something I feel not good that I cant work with two applications at the same time like if I am looking something on browser I cant play games running at the backend or see a missed call alert without going back or Ill have to close the browser to go back and check the rest of the phone activities or apps . It slowdowns and wastes a lot of time and even irritates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LovinIt S3's little brother
The Samsung galaxy S3 is a wonderful phone and I really like it. But the size is way too big. With the S3 mini, you get all of the same features of the S3 but in a smaller package that can actually fit in your pocket.
PROS : The motions are wonderful, and the battery life exceeds expectations.
CONS: The phone does not have NFC
Also, when you take out the battery and feel the phone's weight, it is like holding a piece of paper

Rated 5 out of 5 by kev_leeds So good....i bought the wife one too
Loved this phone from the minute i set eyes on it. Had mine 4 weeks and it`s a cracker. So much technology and advanced features crammed into this beauty. Very easy to operate, very easy on the eye with great clarity screen and for reading texts too. Mine is in the pebble blue.....but bought the mrs the white version, she too loves the phone as much as i do.
All i can say is....buy it, its such good value and a joy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by zoebbz Really good phone
I wanted the big s3 for ages but i really didnt like the size of it and i am so glad they brought the mini out. The phone overall is really good. It fits in your hand perfectly, its fast and the screen quality is very clear. I especially love the size of the phone over all. The only thing i dont like is it takes ages to take photo and it is a tad bit expensive :( but overall if you enjoy the phone its worth the money.

I have had two SAMSUNG phones in my past. Back in 2009, I had the Gravity and it was my favorite phone, now in 2013, I saved up all of my money to buy the Galaxy S3 mini and it is amazing! Although the specs aren't amazing, it performs very well! Not many signs of lag, camera takes nice pics and HD video, Super AMOLED screen is amazing with the colors and sharpness and Jelly Bean 4.1 is amazing! I also quite like the TouchWiz interface. I occasionally use S-Voice which is helpful when you need to set a timer or something and the Play Store is full of great apps! Being a teen, I love my music and the music player is great, the equalizer is really good and accurate and I like the 'Quick List' to quickly listen to your favorite songs. Overall this is great phone and I can't find anything wrong with it apart from the fact that you need to buy a case to protect from drops, overall good value and great phone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RetroScarlettRaven Attractive phone
This phone was a great step up after having two years with the durable Samsung Galaxy Europa. It has wonderful features on it and the screen is clear and bright but it can be a little slow at times. I'm also a little concerned about the fragility of the rather thin device and the not very tough screen but this shouldn't be a problem if you are careful with your phones.

Simply great, I have the S3 and the S3 mini. S3 was too very big for my pockets and after buying this one I had the same great experience as I had earlier in the S3. This phone has a clean minimalist design, it's attractive and compact. Nature UX is just as elegant as seen in the S3. People see and are just left seeing.
Overall Impresive performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by galaxyFOREVER a very good phone
it`s an AWESOME phone it`s big enough for me because the galaxy s3/s4 are a bit big and too pricy i have been very very happy with this phone.but i think that samsung should have made it with a bigger battery but overall it`s SUPER AMAZING and i really recommend it for those who want a great and small phone

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tazz Designed for people with an unlimited cell phone budget
Too many apps that leads to the battery being drained at an alarming rate.
It is impossible to decern which apps are necessary for the phone to operate and which are just there to eat away at your cell budget.
Indescriminate updates that are not requested, nor authorized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ksells123 What A Fantastic Phone
An amazing phone. Pop up play and smart stay are handy features, as well as smart alert which notifies you when you have an unread message etc. Having Android Jelly Bean is excellent, with Project Butter making things extra quick and least likely to crash/slow down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3Ace Possibly the best smartphone
The S3 appear too large so I chose the S3 mini instead. I can say I haven't been disappointed as it is packed with excellent features and its performance is on par with the best smartphones around.
Contrary to some views, this phone is definitely not feminine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kazzerfly I love this phone
My little samsung is just great, easy to use, no problems at all with it except when I put my old sd card into it it would turn off when it felt like it, reformatted the sd card and its been wonderful ever since. I highly recommend this phone to anyone

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sudini Poor battery life
Not suitable for business purpose. If you have very few calls and messages with limited and very low email usage will work. Otherwise it wont last for a day(office hours) though you do not have much of the apps running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mini Me Beautiful and small, but brilliant...
Sharp, intelligent and mini, this smartphone fits my taste in the matter. Being built with a very clear display and very clever performance, it stands proudly right behind his bigger brother...I'm in love with S3 Mini

Rated 5 out of 5 by ppero196 Great phone
Samsung really did it with this one. This phone is awesome. S3's big screen was just too big for me.
4" is great screen size for a phone.
Good job Samsung. Keep it up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GROB234 Very fragile product
I'm very disappointed with the quality of this phone. My ring (not a heavy one) fell on its screen and it literally broke into pieces just after a day from purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RayOfSunshine1 S3 mini
Used to have a SE Xperia Ray, 8MP camera, small in size, light and good screen resolution (297ppi), decided to update to the S3 mini, 5MP camera, resolution of 233 ppi - well, its a nice phone, speedy and the screen is not bad at all. I compared it to my friend's Note II, to be honest, couldn't tell the difference easily in terms of picture clarity and running of the sample video on the phone. By no means the top of the range phone, but am very happy with the purchase, easy to handle one handed and good price as well for someone who does not want to spend over the top on a mobile phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by marbreles I cannot use many of the features as unable to understand quick dealer response or access a handbook to download. I need help before I hand back
Where can I download a written instruction book - not a video one. I am 75 and want words I can understand to use phone to potential I bought it for,

I love the phone, but only had it for a little while. It seams that the battery does not last very long, but other than that, the phone is awesome.
