I had an S2 and loved it, then a nexus, also good, but both had poor battery life and were too big (especially the nexus). The mini is the right size for a phone you hold in your hand and talk on mostly, or send text, and occasionally surf/use for google maps, etc. If you need a smart phone, and mostly use it as a phone, this is it. Jelly Bean system, good graphics, enough power, expandable memory. But, its not an S3, its an S3 mini, which means smaller processor, not as fast with apps, etc. Battery last..
==UPDATE 3 Mar '13=== A Titan Grey version of the Galaxy S III Mini i8190 is also available with some of the very same Amazon sellers now!So I bought this phone to replace an iPhone 4. Been having it for 2 years and the antennagate issue's been getting worse especially this year... So I thought I'd make a small phone upgrade and I got the S3 Mini.My thoughts on this phone after using it for one week.BEWARE: Before buying this phone, CHECK YOUR MOBILE CARRIER'S NETWORK BROADCASTING FREQUENCY BEFORE BUYING TH..
The phone is nice, the screen is good, not astonishing as it's big brother Samsung galaxy S3.Is not a bad phone, but the thing here is the price. You can get an Optimus 2X from LG, Nokia Lumia 900 maybe an iPhone 4. What I'm trying to say here and don't take me wrong, it's not a bad phone at all, comes with Jeally bean, camera is decent, screen is decent, but I consider it over priced. This phone should be sold for $300 bucks or less and not $400
