  • 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.

    Positives
    • back in 2013: good camera in good light conditions
    • back in 2013: good price/quality ratio
    • not bulky, small size, operatable with small hands
    Negatives
    • internal memory (app size nowadays is too large for it)
    • internal memory (half of it is filled by Samsung)
