Galaxy S III Mini

Samsung released the Galaxy S III mini in a move that seemed like one to appease the spirits of those who felt the Galaxy S III was a tad too large for their hands. At 4 inch Galaxy S III mini comes some 0.8 inches smaller than the Galaxy S III. There were also a few compromises made to the Galaxy S III mini, these being the screen resolution, the processor capacity, Camera, Battery and internal storage. This also reflects in the pricing which is quite different from the Galaxy S III. Last time I checked, the Galaxy S III mini was priced at Kes 37,000 ($430) without contract at some shops in Kenya.
The Galaxy S III mini takes the same shape and carries all the features available in the Galaxy S III and applications developed by Samsung like S Voice, Direct Call, Smart Stay, S Suggest, Smart Alert, Buddy Photo Share and Pop up play. It has all these essentials so it really is a good deal.
