Good: same performance as galaxy s2 whych was super high end just a few years back
Bad: nothing only usual android staff like too much costumization possibilities so user spend whole months customising his phone because he can :D
Comment: I dont know which part of MINI cnet doesnt understand but if this phone would have same hw like big s3 i would hawe cost as much so no big help for users who cant afort big s3, and it styl have enough performance for everithing even more advanced users want to do on their phone. Powerfill enough procesor and graphic for most of a graphic intese games, smooth ui (finaly) and camera not exactly for profesional but styl prety good. It looks stylisch and have many features of big s3 like smart stay and others
Good: I wanted the big one and I got the little really happy that I got it considering I am only 10.
Bad: No kids know about it.
Comment: Its so powerful in a 4 inch screen package.
Good: It is literally a shrunken S3. If you forgive the slower and more uncommon processor, everything is perfect. Now that the price has fallen, it is the perfect phone to buy.
Bad: Both cameras are not up to the mark. The primary camera's picture quality deteriorates on extensive zooming. The secondary camera is not great, but is okay for video calls.
Comment: I was able to obtain this phone( 8GB version) plus a scratch guard and a flip case, within 270 dollars. Excellent deal for the price. Get it if you can. If you cannot obtain it from Abu Dhabi, you can get it now from www.souk.com for 255 dollars, without the accessories mentioned above. No regrets. Go for it.
Good: nice size screen
