The Samsung GALAXY S III Mini is the miniature version of the Samsung GALAXY S. For the most part, their only difference is size, weight, and processor. Both have a 1GB RAM memory with expandable storage, and a Micro SD slot. Sharing the same organic, nature-inspired design, the Mini also boasts of a 4.0” WVGA Super-AMOLED display which allows its users to enjoy movies, photos and web browsing in crystal-clear display even in the brightest environment.
It also has the same intelligent features in Galaxy S III, which include Smart Stay (which detects if the user is looking at the display and keeps the display from timing out until the user looks away), Smart Alert (which detects when a user returns to the phone and gives him a brief vibrating nudge to inform about missed calls, calendar events, and new messages), Direct call (which allows a user to make a call simply by lifting the phone to his or her ear while writing or reading a message or while specific contact details are brought up to the display), and S-Voice (which allows the users to control and command the smartphone with his or her own voice).
The GALAXY S III Mini was designed for the style-conscious and more modest user without skimping on power and performance. For more information, log on to www.samsung.com/PH or visit our page at www.facebook.com/SamsungPH
