A true smartphone, despite its size


Jan. 23, 2012—Samsung reveals the Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini, its latest smartphone in the market. The launch was held at URBN bar and Kitchen in Bonifacio High Street, Taguig, where guests were asked to ponder the question, “Does size matter?”

An evening filled with discussions on the “big vs small” subject matter transpired with host Sam YG posing the question to radio DJs Jason, Logan, Tin Gamboa, Aaron Atayde, Dani Castano and Karen Bordador.  The first three took on the affirmative, and the latter served as the opposition. Guests were treated to an interesting and fun verbal relay as the debate tackled topics ranging from sports to foot size.

The main takeaway was that no matter what the size, what’s important is that it gets the job done. A perfect case in point is the Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini itself, which, despite its small size, packs a powerful punch and delivers the functions of its “big brother” phone, the Samsung Galaxy SIII.

To cap the evening, Paulo del Rosario, Samsung Mobile head of Smartphones, talked about the new smartphone and the exciting partnership it has with Globe.

The Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini will be offered free through Globe’s exclusive customizable plans: Globe My Super Plan 999, which comes with P900 Consumable, 50MB data and two call and text freebies which can be changed monthly.

    I’m loving my Nokia Lumia 920 now!

    Despite having to emphasize the “smallness” of this phone in this article, the writer never mentioned the screen size. This phone comes with a 4″ screen — hardly small, as the iPhone 5 also comes with the same screen size. Not to mention we also have a large amount of smaller-screened phones being sold in the country.

    Another paid article?

    For me, Nokia is still the best smartphone with respect to durability and usage. Other smartphones like Samsung galaxy, and iPhone are good only for movie streaming and games. And, it’s not even an advantage. Why would you watch movies, tv broadcast and play games in your cellphone if you have a computer or at least a tablet? You will only be destroying your eyes. Nokia is advantageous when you are a businessman and frequently travels abroad. Nokia is the owner of Navteq which manufactures GPS maps. So, even if you are not connected to the internet, you can use the GPS anywhere in the world and it comes with both driving and walking mode. You can download all the maps of the countries of the world for free through Ovi sync or Nokia Suite. My old phone is a Nokia N8-00 and it is pretty reliable and sturdy. I decided to by a new LG Nexus 4 as a gift to myself when Google offered it last Christmas. I was lucky to buy at once the moment it was offered online because as soon as it was posted by Google, it was sold out within minutes. What with a 4G Lte, latest 4.2.1 jelly bean android, with photosphere camera capable of 3D picture talking, 16 gigabytes, unlocked and an amazing give away price of only 349 dollars. Other smartphones sells for more than 600 dollars unlocked with only 8 gig internal memory. Besides, Google is the producer of android apps that is why almost all the top apps are free to download at Google Play. No wonder iPhone and Samsung are now complaining. No problem with Nokia, it has it’s own free apps.
