And most importantly, Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini attracts our attention with its design and outlook. So, Samsung has done everything what should be in the market to infuse positive message.

Targeting the mid-range mobile phone market, Samsung’s intention appears clearly here. It wants to throw strong competition in the market.

It would vie in a straight line with its closest rival Apple’s offerings.
