Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini smartphone now down to £14 per month

E2Save, a subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse, is selling the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, one of the few disappointing handsets the Korean company launched recently, for as little as £14 per month on O2 on a two year contract.

The total cost of ownership of £336 is not a massively huge premium compared to the suggested retail price of this handset. The plan includes 100 minutes, 250MB data and unlimited texts plus you get access to Priority Moments.

As for the handset itself, well, the Galaxy S3 Mini is closer to the Galaxy S2 than to the S3 itself. Its screen resolution for a start is still 800 x 480, spread on a 4in Super AMOLED display, It is powered by a dual-core ST-Ericsson U8500 SoC, the same that powers the Xperia U (and the Galaxy Ace 2) which costs half the price of the S3 Mini.

Other features include a 5-megapixel camera, the same design as the Galaxy S3, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UI, DLNA compatibility, HD video recording, a front facing VGA camera, 8GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot.
