The Samsung S3 Mini was the first ‘mini’ version of a Samsung flagship Smartphone. The S3 Mini boosts some decent specs but comes at a price that is out of reach of many in the Kenyan Smartphone Market.
In a perfectly orchestrated move, Samsung introduced the Samsung Galaxy S3 lite. The S3 Lite is exclusively a Kenyan affair and the petite device available for purchase via Safaricom Retail Stores country wide.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Lite is to an extent a ‘compact’ version of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini.
Tech Trends Diary analytics data shows that Kenyans love the Galaxy S3 Lite. I believe this is largely to the friendly price tag of the Galaxy S3 lite.
I decided to it the two devices against each other.
