Has anybody owned and used both?

I've had an iPhone 4 for 18 months, like it, happy with it. But just got an S3 Mini on upgrade.

So wondering which is deemed better.

Fwiw both are 8gb.

(Its not a matter of just swapping over SIM cards to try it for a day, as iPhone takes a micro sim, so I'd have to swap over to a new sim, contacts etc)

Thanks : )

Mrs. Clareman used a iphone 4 for a couple of years, I got a S3 recently and she loved it so I got her a S3 mini (I know, she's lucky to have me ), she can't believe how easy it is to use, how much better the battery life is and most of all, she loves the notifications.

To get her contacts I just set her iPhone to back to her google account, then when I setup her S3 logged in what that and all the contacts came straight down.

s3 mini isn't really an s3 more of a midway station between the 2 and the 3, personally i''d go with the S3 then the S2 and then the mini

Thanks Clareman, sounds good. I just wanted a backup to the iPhone 4, but since then it seems it may be as good if not better.

Also I was told I'd need a new SIM card due to it being a micro sim, but turns out I can just use a SIM card adaptor so won't lose my contacts etc.

Now at least I can pick and choose between them and not have to get a new SIM card each time.

Thanks, but the phone was already bought so sticking with it.

No bother : )

One issue, I've used the SIM card adapter, stuck it in the Samsung, and all my contacts are gone?????

But putting it back in the iPhone and they're all there?????

How do I get my contacts onto my SIM card does anybody know?
