User reviews about the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini

- Good and affordable phone back in 2012-2013
Back in 2012-2013 I bought this phone because of it's camera and because it was affordable and small. And it did not let me down.
I actually wanted the S3, but a phone of that size simply does not fit in my pocket and I can't operate it with 1 hand. If I'd buy a phone larger than 13 centimetre long, I'd rather buy a tablet.
Then came the S3 Mini, which was the perfect alternative: small, reasonably hardware, good camera, not too expensive. And I still use the phone today (April 2017)!
It used to be a reasonably quick phone, but nowadays it is quite slow. But I've overstuffed the memory so that might have something to do with it.
The only thing I have disliked about the phone, is that only 5.5 GB of storage is available for the user. I can't seem to install apps on the SD card, which is why the storage of the internal memory card has been full, permanently, for the last 2 years.
Camera: good shots in good light conditions, but does not compare to newer phones of course.Pros
- back in 2013: good camera in good light conditions
- back in 2013: good price/quality ratio
- not bulky, small size, operatable with small hands
- internal memory (app size nowadays is too large for it)
- internal memory (half of it is filled by Samsung)

In this case, to determine the score we evaluate 5 general aspects:
- Design and screen
- Hardware and performance
Once these 5 factors have been rated, we introduce the price variable. This means that any two devices with the same ratings get a different Ki score for quality vs price.
Even a device objectively worse than another may have a higher Ki score if it has a better price.
The Ki varies as time goes by. As new devices with better specifications enter the market the Ki score of older devices will go down, always being compensated of their decrease in price.
