Saw the samsung S3 mini for a great price. Got delivered fast, great looking phone.. took a while to get used to, but that was simply as I have only had iphones since the 3G came out.
Amazing phone has opened up my eyes and now I see the iphone for what it is.. a fashion item.
The galaxy is faster and the tech spec beats it everyway possible..
This android 4.1.2 smartphone has received mixed reviews from the experts, mainly receiving around 3/5 scores. This is really due to the fact that it was overpriced at RRP - £300 - £315. Other handsets, offered a better screen, a quicker processor, more megapixels on the camera etc, and also it was nothing like the Galaxy S3 (other than in looks - the features were stripped back so much) so the reviews were justified.
Now the price has been reduced, and mostly so at Amazon, the phone becomes an excellent buy for the price.
It's size is really good, it fits the hand well, being a more preferable size in my eyes to the very large S3.
It is well made, looks good, works well, with no noticeable lag.
The camera is decent for the price and the Samsung TouchWiz overlay is attractive and easy to use. The screen is good enough, although not the sharpest available, but you have to take in to consideration the price you are getting it for.
The processor is 1GHz Dual Core which again is decent but not outstanding compared to other models but good overall for the price. This will be fine for nearly all apps other than big graphic gaming ones.
Well worth buying a case for it as I've seen lots of these style phones with a smashed screen due to a drop.
Although not especially noted, this is the 8GB version. After taking into account the android and samsung software you get 4.55GB free, which is enough for plenty of apps and you get the option of buying and installing a large SD card for all your photos and music etc.
Well worth considering at this price. You are getting a very good phone at just over budget price.Read more ›
Samsung Galaxy 3 can and often develop something called SDS. (Sudden death Syndrome) After 2 months I tried to unlock the phone and it was completely dead. After much research I removed the battery and sim card for two minutes and then rebooted the phone. Phew, back to life! However, it did it again two days later.
Now you would expect Samsung customer services to be understanding and helpful with a common fault with this model. After all there is supposed to be a firmware update to sort out this issue. Sadly, they seem to be in denial. "Have you tried changing the battery?" After some prompting they admited there was a problem but it was not that common. However, they stated that the major problem with S3's are they do not power up!!! (Same thing???)
They told me to send my phone to them for a few weeks and they would have a look at it. And what am I supposed to use for 3 weeks while they have my phone? And apparently if your phone shows any signs of damage, then they will not repair it under warranty.
So, sadly I sent the phone back to amazon (no quibbles) and bought a Sony Xperia SP. A litle more money, in some ways better, some ways not so good.....but hopefully we can forge a long and meaningful relationship!
The screen is reasonably clear, sharp and responsive to the touch and fairly quick in flicking from screen to screen.
Signal reception seems to be generally decent (on Tesco Mobile/O2) but does sometimes struggle to deliver a full 3G connection. I do not really know if this is down to the phone, the signal or a combination of the two. I have rarely found this to be an issue though.
As a SIM - free version, it does not come too overloaded with Apps, which is a blessing (but still a few too many 'useless ones' for my liking), leaving you free to load those that you really need. You do get a few Samsung and Google Apps, which you may or may not use. Email, Internet, Maps and the SATNAV are my mainstay ones. I just wish it was easier to completely get rid of the little used pre-installed Apps, without having to resort to 'rooting' the phone, which is a minefield for inexperienced or 'non techie' users! (This is typical of Android devices though).
I also liked the soft earbud type earphones that were supplied with the phone, I find them quite comfortable.
The supplied Email and internet seem to function without issue for me and the Maps and SATNAV, whilst not up to Garmin standards, have served me well when travelling. Do make sure you have an in car charger, as the phone obviously needs Wi-Fi and GPS running when using this and the battery will drain quite quickly.Read more ›
