4-inch Samsung Galaxy S III mini officially launched today in Germany with a price tag of 420 Euros. As we all know that Samsung Galaxy S3 is a major success in smartphone industry but the biggest problem lots of people face in this model is its big size. Not only its big, heavy but its also not fit into the hands of small size people so there was a need of a phone which is lighter and smaller in size as compared to the Galaxy S3. Samsung Galaxy S-3 mini has only 4.0 inch touch screen with more slimmer and with some lower specs but rest of the specs are almost the same.
First of all if you are willing to buy Galaxy S-III mini than you have to compromise on speed and performance because its has only Dual Core 1Ghz processor where as Galaxy S 3 has Quard Core 1.4 Ghz processor which is twice as fast as mini has.
Second thing which is small in mini is its touch screen which is 4.0 inch in size. Now its a good reduction because the phone fits perfectly into the hands without any problem. You can now operate it with just one hand like Apple iPhone 5 but you also have to compromise on screen resolution because mini has only WVGA 800×480 pixel resolution Super AMOLED display where as Galaxy S3 has 720 x 1280 pixels HD Touch screen.
Third feature you have to compromise is its camera which is 5 mega pixel compare to the S3 8 mega pixel camera. Camera is capable of capturing 720p videos as compared to the S3 1080p HD video with LED flash light. Front facing camera is only VGA for video chating only.
Ram size is same in both models which is a good sign for mini customer. Samsung Galaxy S III mini will be available in two data storage models 8 and 16 GB along with microSD card slot option to expand your smartphone memory.
Mobile operating system for both versions is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which is also a good sign and amazingly Samsung is providing its state of the art high class features like S Voice and Smart Stay too in mini version. Samsung’s TouchWiz User interface will remain on top of Android OS. All other features of S3 are the same like WiFi, GPS, Accelerometer, GLONASS, FM radio, Gyroscope, proximity sensor, Swype text input, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC etc.
The phone dimensions are 121.6 x 63 x 9.9 mm and mini weighs only 111.5 grams which is quite good. It has decent medium size 1500mAh capacity battery which can be used to play music for up-to 6 hours. The phone will be available in the market from November and its price will be around $500 dollars.
