£14 per month Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini smartphone

Head over to BuyMobilePhones if you are after the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini (which looks like the S3 but has Galaxy S2 parts). The retailer sells it on O2 for £14 per month on a two-year contract, that's a total cost of ownership of £336, which is nearly 40 per cent more than the cost of the phone itself (you can get it for under £200 on SIM Free). The O2 plan includes only 50 minutes and 100MB data but you also get unlimited texts, tethering, unlimited O2 Wi-Fi hotspot, Priority Moments and two months free O2 tracks.

As for the phone itself, it comes with a dual-core ST-Ericsson Novathor U9500 SoC clocked at 1GHz with 512MB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a 4in Super AMOLED 800 x 480 pixel display with a Pentile matrix, a rear 5-megapixel camera, a front facing camera Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, TouchUX user interface and a 1,500mAh battery. The camera is all but pocket-sized as the marketing literature would describe it. Check out our review of the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini smartphone here.
