Good: Big screen, good 8mp camera
Bad: Camera stopped working 11 months into contract
Comment: Phone was brilliant, worked well until the camera stopped working at the back my flash stopped too which i was disappointed, when i go on apps such as facebook it freeze's and goes off back to home screen and sometimes without anything on it freeze's and does nothing for about 5 minutes till it decides to come back on or without a reboot, other than that the phone works brilliant would recommend but be aware about camera, i also know someone else who has the same phone and having same troubles with camera!
Good: buttery smooth still stunning
Comment: i own this phone its the best phone ive owned and my friends still say its a brilliant phone the only thing i want is a better ui cos i installed an app of google play to make it look like it has stock ics cos i dont like touch wiz
Good: I don't really know anymore
Comment: Yes great phone, lots of features, lots of capabilities, but when you really need it to work it doesn't? what the hell? You feel like you should be greatful having all these new connections but at the same time, you paid almost 400 euros for it!!! So here I am trying to pay for something with paypal and somewhere during checkout you decide not to allow click through on continue.. what the f..... if you cannot do the useful stuff then why are we here??
Good: Camera,screen touch ,very fast
Bad: It hang a lot after you use it months it always hang when I'm playing games
Good: Processor, camera, display and many more
Comment: Such a brilliant phone, does everything I need it to do.
Its fast, smooth and has a beautiful vivid display.
Not to forget it has many features like "Tilt to zoom, pan to edit, double tap, turn over to mute and many more!
Comment: Sleek and stylish, the ergonomically-designed Samsung Galaxy S 3 mini GT-I8190 cell phone takes functionality to another level
Good: NOT A LOT !!!!!!
Bad: KEEPS FREEZING & SWITCHING ITSELF OFF
Comment: This is the worse phone I have ever had - so very disappointed with it - on average it freezes on me 3 or 4 times a day - have only had the phone since October and this is the third replacement but still the same problem and lately once I have managed to get the phone working again by having to take the battery out I lose all my contacts for about 20 minutes !!!!! Unfortunately tied into a 12 month contract.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PHONE TO ANYONE
