I was thrilled when Samsung came out with the mini version of the Galaxy S3 as I’ve been lemming for a smaller phone for quite some time. Big phones are great (because they’ve got big screens and all), but my hands are too small for them. So when this came out, I thought – Finally! Something for my small hands! I ordered one immediately, and pulled up my sleeves when my new phone arrived. Just like anyone else, I tinkered around with it, played with it, and I personalized it as soon as I had it.
So here are my thoughts on this phone. I love that it’s compact. It fits well on my hand, so it’s very easy to hold. Though I imagine folks with bigger hands might have trouble with small phones. But anyway, this works for me. What I didn’t like was its response time. Sometimes it takes 5-10 seconds (or more) before I can get to my contacts and call someone. It’s kind of slow. I don’t know if it’s just this unit or if it’s the same for everyone else. The camera’s okay, but it doesn’t really produce crisp photos especially under low light. Overall, I guess I’m happy with my new phone. I just wish it were a bit faster.
