      lol.. i have my nexus one & nexus 7. I pity on you guys who cannot demand right worth value for hard earned money.

      Have a look at this comparison with 3 years old Nexus One, and still think S3 mini shouldn’t come within 12k

          I can’t believe this guy…
          FYI
          3.7inch is smaller than 4inch
          1ghz dual core a9 cpu is any day better than 1ghz single core a5
          mali400(single core in novathor u8420/u8500 wins hands down against adreno 200
          super amoled is better than amoled
          480p recording is lower than 720p

          i am tired of writing these comparisons..you can yourself read the link you posted…
          god bless this guy!

      Stop laughing and realize how are these manufactures dominating the market with such huge prices. WVGA screen with dual core 1.2 Ghz and 1 GB Ram deserve this.

      Nexus 7 cost 10K in USA and 20K in India.
      Nexus 4 which has best screen, quad core, 2GHZ RAM and bigger screen than S3 mini costs 17-18k in US is not launched in India due to these manufacture monopolies.

      Value your hard earned money or waste it laughing off. I don’t care its ur money 🙂

        huge price? 21.5k isn’t huge for galaxy grand..it’s key selling point is its screen size…i know the resolution isn’t great…but u can’t expect everything at this price from a manufacturer like samsung…
        why is nexus 7 selling in US for 11k? because it is sold via play store and google is subsidizing the price…
        talking about nexus 4…it’s a great deal at $299 in us…but again why? because google is subsidizing it…
        nexus 4 isn’t selling here because devices aren’t sold in india via play store….the fact dat lg can’t sell it at such a low price in india might have been the reason they didn’t launch it here…
        manufacturer monopoly exists in US(where Apple dominates) not in india…
        i LOVE value for money phones…but you can’t really expect s3 mini at 10-12k… SAMSUNG IS NOT MICROMAX…
        PS-its 2gb not 2ghz…RAM is measured in megabytes and gigabytes

          Sorry for typo.. Google is not offering in India might because of strong presence of Samsung in India (monopoly & wide range) compared to other countries.

          Apple doesn’t have monopoly but loyal (fool rich) people who will spend anything for apple. This is not monopoly.

            Whatever may be the reason, Apple rules in USA…and it enjoys its monopoly over any other manufacturer in mobile+tablet business!!
            If you don’t know what monopoly is, don’t speak about it! Get your facts right!

    Is it really worth? 5inch screen WVGA and that too at 21K. I don’t think so, they better had launched s3 mini in range of 10-12K
