Big Big Disappointment especially for its price!!!! Lower mid range device exorbitantly priced.... would go to and S2 or an xperia s/sl over this any day!!! A "mini" device with "mini" specs with a "mini" price range would have done the trick I guess...... but not to be I guess!!!

Why do the specs on the 'mini' have to be nerfed? Is there no such thing as a high end smartphone anymore that isn't the size of my forearm?

I guess this is the true successor to the Galaxy W GT-I8150 (rumored as Galaxy SII Mini before) and not the Ace 2 GT-I8160..... :)

Really disappointed if this is the price.

Samsung needs to learn from Moto on how to make a mid-range handset.

this is retarded, this is no competitor to the iPhone 5! it should have had the same specs, except for the smaller screen

This phone seems feels so pointless. It's lower spec'd than the S2 (which is getting JB) and cost more than it... does not compute. Screen size is the only thing in it's favor I guess.

I think the problem with this phone is the name because this phone has more in common with the Galaxy Mini than the SIII: a slower processor, a camera with less megapixels, less screen resolution, no LTE, etc. So it's more an enhanced Mini than a smaller SIII. But I don't think this is a bad phone for an entry level. I have a Galaxy Mini just for calling and sending SMS and emails, but for reading, browsing the web and playing some games I have a 7 inch tablet and that combination works for me.

The thing that I don't like besides the low resolution is the price, if the price in Europe for the unlocked version is over $500, I don't want to imagine how much would it cost in South America.
