Engadget Review

If you were hoping for a mini Galaxy S III, this isn't it. If, instead you fancy a decent mid-spec phone with a modern design, this is a great choice.

SAMSUNG S3 MINI REVIEWThis is a phone great for entry-level mobile gamers and definitely for those who are teenagers. While the build quality is questionable there is no doubt that Samsung tried to make this a good phone, with a decent processor and one gigabyte of RAM, which in my opinion is still rather impressive in mobile phones.6/10

Bought this for my grandmother, and it doesn't disappoint! She really enjoys taking pictures and being able to view them back instantly. The size is absolutely perfect, as high-end offerings like the Galaxy S III are just too big for her, and iPhones are way too overpriced in Israel. The device only costs about 1700 ILS (which equates to about $455 US) in retail stores, which is a great value for a device that's so capable, is quite durable and has great battery life. Highly recommended.The official retailer, Samsung Mobile Israel, sells the S III mini for 2229 ILS (~ $600 US), which is obviously a horrible price, considering that the HTC One X (not from its official retailer) costs just about 300 ILS (~ $80 more), and the One S is actually cheaper.
