Bottom Line

The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini GT-I8200 offers users a familiar design to the S3 flagship phone and sports Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. But the poor camera quality and low pixel density screen is a drawback.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini GT8200 is a bestselling 2012 unlocked smartphone that received positive reviews for a stylish design, bright screen, a faster processor than its predecessor, a usable main camera with LED flash, and microSD support. However, its 4-inch screen is quite small and sports a low resolution, the dual-core processor is also not meant for big apps or multitasking, and Android purists may not like Samsung’s TouchWiz UI. Overall the S3 Mini GT8200 is a reasonable choice for users who are ready to trade off extra features for a reduced price tag on a small and lightweight phone perfect for basic use. Please note: this version may not be covered under warranty in the US.

    They may look similar, but there's a whole host of differences between the Galaxy S3 mini and its bigger, more powerful brother - the Samsung Galaxy S3.
