Samsung Galaxy S III mini G730A 

Released November, 2013
  • Android 4.1.2
  • 3.5G
  • 4"
  • Dual core 1 GHz
That said despite the lower resolution, the Super AMOLED screen is bright and reproduces colours very well which makes for a more than acceptable user experience.

Of course, under the right circumstances the Galaxy S III mini makes sense - processing power is enough for everything but the heavy games (which work better on the larger screens anyway), Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is great to have and there's sufficient storage and you can easily (and cheaply) expand it.
