The Samsung Galaxy S III Mini convinces as a smartphone. The hardware may not be the latest and the greatest, but it's powerful enough to ensure a smooth user experience. However, the 'S III' in the name creates expectations that aren't entirely met. Sure, the software and all the features are there, but the hardware just is a bit too underwhelming. Especially considering the £300 you'll reportedly be asked to pay for this device. If you're not particularly bothered by the software and all the interesting features it has to offer, then the Galaxy S Advance may be the better option for you. This has the same hardware, but doesn't give you the 'S III' look and feel. It is, however, cheaper than the Mini.
