Sizably faster maximum shutter speed
5x faster maximum shutter speed. A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.
Significantly less shutter lag
0.05 s less shutter lag. The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
It has a better design, it feels like a leather in hand.
Considerably less startup delay
0.41 s less startup delay. It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.

Top 24 Reasons for the
Apple iPhone 4S 16GB
Compared to Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini
Much higher pixel density
41.63% higher pixel density
Considerably more megapixels (photo)
1.60x more megapixels (photo)
Significantly higher resolution
1.60x higher resolution
Every pixel has three subpixels
The device has a display with three full subpixels per pixel, resulting in a sharp and crisp picture. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
Direct updates by OS vendor
It can be updated directly by the OS vendor, so no need to wait until the manufacturer or network provider releases an update.
A shade thinner
0.60 mm thinner
Substantially better video recording quality
1080 x 30 fps
720 x 30 fps
1.50x better video recording quality
Has an IPS screen
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of normal TFTs TN-matrices: relatively slow response times, small viewing angles and low quality color reproduction.
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
Has a CMOS sensor
CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.
Has manual white balance
With manual white balance you can choose the most accurate setting and avoid the green, blue or red hue which can occur in auto mode. You can also change the setting for artistic effect.
4.40 mm narrower
Plenty less body volume
36.80% less body volume
6.40 mm shorter
