4 out of 5 eggsBetter with custom ROM

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 mini GT-i8190L/GT-i8190 White 3G Dual-Core 1.0GHz 8GB Unlocked Cell Phone

Pros: Have had for more than a year with the stock ROM, and it works fine. I used it with 3 different SIMs on 3 different continents, and have had no issues.
A few weeks ago I decided to root and put on a custom ROM from novafusion.pl...now I have an unofficial port of Cyanogenmod based on Android 4.4.3 long before Samsung finally gets around to releasing the official KitKat ROM. A few bugs in the nightly builds, but overall greatly improves the usability of the phone.

Cons: No NFC on this model (i8190L). Samsung says they will eventually upgrade to KitKat, but why wait when you can have Cyanogenmod right now?
Small screen not so great for surfing the web, so I just wifi tether my 8" tablet to the phone when I am not in a wifi hot spot.
Accessories not usually available at the mall kiosk like for the more popular models, but still readily available via internet.
I live and work in the 3rd world, so can't comment on the 4G speeds, but 3G has been just fine everywhere I've gone.

Other Thoughts: Can't say enough good about Cyanogenmod upgrade to get rid of the useless Samsung bloatware.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Phone!!

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 mini GT-i8190L/GT-i8190 White 3G Dual-Core 1.0GHz 8GB Unlocked Cell Phone

Pros: I've only had this phone for a couple of days yet I find that this phone has everything that I need. The display on this phone is outstanding. The application menu and setting menu are easy to understand and navigate. On most of the setting, there is a help feature there just in case you don't know what it does. The call quality is also excellent.

My only complaint is that I didn't look here first, I paid almost $200 more than I could've here!! I would definitely recommend this to a freind

Cons: I have not found any cons yet... If I start finding them, then I will re-post with updated information. I truly believe, however, that I will not find anything that will sour my experience with this phone.

Other Thoughts: I decided to buy this phone because I wanted something that would last and keep up with the technology. I know that technology will surpass this phone, I truly believe that I will enjoy this phone for years to come.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent little phone!

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 mini GT-i8190L/GT-i8190 White 3G Dual-Core 1.0GHz 8GB Unlocked Cell Phone

Pros: Great little phone -- ordered it on another auction site for about the same price -- a little less. The Nexus was still on back order. If you're looking for a smaller form factor then you'll like this phone.

Cons: Nothing really -- works well with straight talk.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S3 mini GT-i8190L/GT-i8190 White 3G Dual-Core 1.0GHz 8GB Unlocked Cell Phone

Pros: It is a smart phone.

Cons: Make sure you read all the fine print.

Other Thoughts: For the same price you can get the "Nexus," and actually get at least 3G (t-mobile). DONT BUY.
