Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini VS Samsung Galaxy Grand, which one to buy?


I really love the comparisons which I have to make with any of the Samsung’s product and when it comes to compare two Samsung products then nothing can be better than that. Samsung has recently launched two new smartphones Galaxy S3 Mini and Galaxy Grand. Galaxy S3 Mini was launched as a cheaper version of S3 for all Samsung lovers who can’t afford original S3 and Galaxy Grand was just unveiled during December 2013. It still has to make its root to Indian market. But according to some reports this new smartphone will be available in India very soon (might be from end Jan 2013 or early Feb). Both the smartphone’s houses almost similar specs. Both are equipped with Jellybean OS and similar software’s from Samsung.

Which one to buy?
Hope you have yourself got an idea about best gadget to buy but if you are somewhere confused then let me solve it out for you.

Both the smartphones comes with similar OS which means both will have butter smooth UI, LWallpapers, resizable app windows etc.

Talking about Galaxy S3 Mini, it comes with better connectivity options (NFC). Along with connectivity it also houses some better software feature.

Galaxy Grand on the other side come with big screen, better processor, camera and battery options. It also gives the option to expand external memory to 64 GB space, which is a great thing for all users. But it will surely come with higher budget than S3 Mini. So if you have some extra bucks to spend on your smartphone then please go for Galaxy Grand as it covers all the best possible specs and features.

  1. in gaming wise which one is better?

    1. galaxy grand is far far better than s3 mini in galaxy grand scored 58 fps in nenamark 2 graphics test (almost same as s3), while s3 mini scores 25-29 exceeds s3 mini's scores in other benchmarks too. and, unlike what most people say, grand has DLNA..i see it in my phone's settings..lastly, the phone's so called low res screen doesn't pose any problems whatsoever..its more than usable, and is sharp and crisp enough to use and'll only notice a little pixelation when you zoom out full in the browser and try to read the text, but you can zoom in for better readability..even the slightest zoom does the job

    2. does it can play high level games,, like,,amazing spider man,,batman,etc,,plz plz plz reply me

    3. Yes! YOu can play all those games on both the phones

  2. Since pixel density is higher in s3 mini wouldn't it be better during video playback?
