Samsung's Galaxy S III is one of the best phones you can buy. It's fast, it's beautiful, it's got guts most handsets can only dream of. That's why it's so disappointing that Samsung's Galaxy S III Mini, officially announced today, isn't just the same phone in a smaller body. It's a lesser phone in every way.


Samsung has confirmed that it will unveil a new, smaller Galaxy S III on October 11. The new phone won't be a budget version, but rather a (slightly) scaled-down device, with a 4-inch screen for those who prefer a more pocketable handset.


The Galaxy S III has a beautifully large 4.8-inch (720 x 1280) display, crisp 8-megapixel camera, quad-core processor and long-lasting 2100mA h battery. And the speedy new 4G-equipped Galaxy S III model hits Australia on October 9th, complete with Android 4.1 Jellybean. Yet Samsung's best smartphone also gets the little things right, like nudging you when you’ve missed something. Let's take a closer look.


If you have a Samsung mobile phone running Android with the TouchWiz UI, there's a newly discovered vulnerability that could result in an accidental factory data reset by simply accessing a link from your phone. This includes some Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III devices. UPDATE: Other Android devices not using TouchWiz are also affected.


The iPhone 5 has been the most anticipated mobile device of 2012 together with its cousin the iPad Mini, which we expect to be seeing shortly. Apple has made displays its most prominent marketing feature, because it determines the quality of the visual experience for everything on a smartphone or tablet — including apps, web content, photos, videos and its camera. The retina displays on the iPhone 4 and the new iPad were significant advancements — not just in sharpness but in picture quality and colour accuracy, which is what provides the display's real wow factor.


Look, I'm just going to come out and say it. It's what we're all thinking, right? Is just a bit petty that Samsung is attacking people who line up for Apple products when nobody is game to line up for Samsung's?
