Samsung S3 mini

So it's been a month since Apple released iPhone 5 and in the first few days they sold over 5 million copys and today you'd have to wait up to few weeks in queue to get one.

But it's not only the iPhone i wanted to talk about.

Samsung is planning to come to the market with a smaller version of Galaxy S3. Since the S3 is a flagship for Samsung and it has sold well, they aim for the same market ( mainly Europe, because of the 4 inch screen demand ).

iPhones all previous versions have been 3.5 inches (screen) and now as they made it 0.5 inches bigger, people have commented a lot about it, as if Apple only made the screen a little bigger. And there are jokes spreading in the vastness of internet that the next iPhone will be many times bigger than current latest version.

So the S3 is 4.8 inches (diagonally ofc) and they are making the new mini version 0.8 inches smaller. In my opinion 4 inches is already maximum size that a phone should have, because i keep it in my pocket ( jeans mostly ) and i'm pretty sure i don't need to explain the issue of having way too much stuff in your pockets.

So iPhone went from 3.5 to 4 and S3 goes from 4.8 to 4.

Price is considered about 300-400 € ~ 400-520 $
