Product Description:

Instead of the grown-up S3's 1.4GHz quad-core processor backed by 2GB RAM the Mini has a dual-core version clocked at 1GHz and backed by 1GB RAM. But while it may not be at the cutting edge it's still pretty nippy in action, helped by the Jelly Bean version of Android, which is the operating system's slickest incarnation yet. It's running the 4.1 version though -- just slightly behind the very latest 4.2 version you'll find on the Google Nexus 4.

As usual, Samsung has added its TouchWiz interface over the top, which largely consists of some alternative shortcut icons and a few uniquely Samsung-esque widgets, like S-Planner -- essentially a calendar app but with a more intuitive layout than the Android alternative. You also get Samsung's own (rather sparse) app store and S-Voice, the Koreans' answer to Apple's Siri, which still has a way to go. It does okay with basic requests like tomorrow's weather, but doesn't have Siri's depth and intuitive capabilities when it comes to more complicated questions. 

The 5-megapixel camera can't match the 8-megapixel snappers on the original S3 or the Nexus 4 -- details aren't quite as clear, and it takes a little longer to focus. That said, pic quality isn't at all bad, with naturalistic colours and there are plenty of focus and exposure options to play with, as well as extras like smile shot and panorama. There's a basic VGA quality camera on the front for video calls and video recording on the main camera can go up to 720p and it's okay, if nothing to write home about.
