Samsung Galaxy S III Mini Unboxing: Deceptively Mini

Samsung’s new Galaxy S III Mini is, as the name suggests, a tinier version of one of the company’s best-selling smartphones ever. It bears a like-for-like outward resemblance to its bigger brother, though it feels a lot different because of its smaller size. To be fair, that’s not such a bad thing.

It’s very compact, with a screen of just 4-inches tall, and still retains Samsung’s familiar plastic build. This is clearly a device aimed to fit in the pocket of those who don’t require the massive power of the S III, though the Mini boasts enough specs in its own right to compete against other Android handsets.

Check out the full unboxing to see a few quick comparisons between this and the bigger S III, along with more thoughts on this diminutive device.
