Measuring four inches in size (compared to the GSIII's 4.6-inch display)


The Galaxy S III has a 4.8" screen. Just sayin'. :) 

The Mini looks okay, but it is specced slightly lower than the Galaxy S II. The only advantage it has is NFC, and that's hardly going to set the world on fire. It might also have been left a little wanting in the battery capacity area.

To me, it looks like a way of stealing iPhone sales by having an identically sized device at a much cheaper price. Sneaky, but the specs are just too low.

The specs are fine for the market they are going for. Samsung actually had a 4" phone in 2009 with the Galaxy S. It was a 4" screen, and large for it's time. This phone is going for a middle market, and the specs are actually pretty darn good for a casual user. It's a nice little phone imo.

Yes, but we're nearly three years down the path from the original Galaxy S (I had one). I think the problem is that it has "S" in the name whereas previous models have clearly separated themselves from the high-end phones by not doing so.

It has a Mali-400MP GPU which is actually pretty good, and with the 1GB of RAM I'm probably being a bit unfair.
