4.0 out of 5 stars Great substitute for a Samsung Galaxy S3 mini. 7 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this for my girlfriend for Christmas as she wanted a new smartphone and was considering picking up one of these £40 a month contracts to get a half decent phone. A bit of research later and bingo! Found this.
It looks the part (we went for the blue one, rather than white), very sleek and professional looking. Comes with a free rubber case and already applied screen protector too.

She put in her old O2 sim card and it worked straight away (she used the normal slot, but it has a slot for a micro sim as well). 3G works, but is a little slow, but not enough to worry about.

It connects to the home WiFi perfectly. No fault what so ever.

The screen, while not as perfect as the real thing if you are a pixel lover, is still very good. Crystal clear, vibrant colours. Watched an HD vid on it and it was spot on.

For some unknown reason, it vibrates when you make a call and the other person picks up. When she calls me and I answer, the first thing I hear is the flipping thing shaking like a smack head. Really annoying for both parties. HOWEVER, there is an app on the playstore called Vibrafix. Sorted the problem out perfectly.

Android lovers, beware. It says it's v4.1.1, but it ain't. Don't know exactly, but definitely a version or two prior to that. It doesn't hinder the use of the phone at all, but some menu items you would think would be there, just aren't.

While others have said it's the exact dimensions of the s3 mini, it isn't. In fact, it is a tiny, weeny bit bigger. We discovered this when we went to buy a new leather wallet case for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 1 Nov. 2013
By Spartan
Verified Purchase
Arrived today, less than a week after ordering. All I can really say is awesome.mdont dismiss the Chinese phones just because they aren't branded, they are essentially the same phone as their branded counterparts.

In this case this is a copy of the Samsung Galaxy 3 mini and being the owner of a Galacy note this is the samsung experiance for me but without all the bloat wear that comes with samsung.

The phone also comes with a gel case as a small form of protection and has a screen protector already fitted making life a bit easier.

Also at £75 quid you really can't complain!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT 12 Nov. 2013
By sm
Verified Purchase
I waited 3 week's for the phone,during that time I was still reading the comments and although there was 50% for and against I am HAPPY with the phone,still getting used to it,came with 80% charge on battery it lasted 27 hrs till empty and using the phone at same time,moves swiftly between modes no stuttering,GREAT 12mp camera at rear not so at front but can't expect much from 3mp.uses the same car charger as LG micro usb,ONLY complaint is instruction booklet is small and writing is minute and you might need a magnifying glass.The SAMSUNG GALAXY S3 MINI BLACK LEATHER FLIP CASE / COVER/ SKIN Sold by E 4 Emporium Limited in amazon will fit although it is a smudging to small the cover still shut safely and securely.I hope that helps.

This phone is spot on, Identical to the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini......Size, Functions, Buttons.......Everything about this phone is brilliant....

I'm glad I brought it.......Why bother with contracts, buy and "Pay As You Go" with this phone and save yourself money in the future......Mine works perfect on the GiffGaff network (O2 network).

1.0 out of 5 stars Late delivery and broken screen 10 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase
I was recommended this phone by a work colleague and was eagerly anticipating it's arrival. One week turned into 2, which turned into 3 then 4 weeks.
Once it finally arrived, I was really dissapointed to find that the screen had a large crack across it. When I booted it up there was black blotches along the crack. Completely unusable.
There was no noticable damaging to the packaging when it arrived so I can only imagine that it was packaged this way.
Overall, very dissapointed and have contacted the seller for a refund/replacement.

Verified Purchase
I dropped my previous samsung phone down the toilet hung over so I needed a replacement, didn't really want to spend over £200 for a new phone so I took a chance on this one.. I was not disappointed! this is seriously a great phone I'm chuffed. The build quality is brilliant, don't be concerned about it coming from China mine arrived in a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Value 28 Sept. 2013
By Nivlem
Verified Purchase
It looks like a Samsung 4 mini, for the price it is a very good phone and works very well, as good as any of the £500+ phones. The fact of it having duel sim card saves me carrying 2 phones. Overall it is well worth the money.
