    hi, I'm having the same problem, and I leave my screen brightness on 30% (just enough to see), most of the day and throughout the night I leave "mobile data" off, and still battery does not last longer than 2 days. Despite the poor battery life of the samsung s3 mini, I am happy with the rest of the specs. Please can you add the battery specs to your samsung s3 mini site (as you did with the s4 mini) - I will find it helpful and interesting...

    Hi Lisa, You are probably using too high a screen brightness. Turn down this and your battery will last longer. Thanks.

    Hi, I had the same issue, wanting to put a picture to a contact that was saved to my SIM card. To do this, click on Contacts, when the list shows, click the Menu button (bottom left by the Home button), click Import/Export, then Import from SIM card. On the pop up screen, save contact to Phone. At this point, you can use the top button to 'select all', or just check the ones you want to save to your phone. Then click Done at the top right of the screen. That's it! Good luck!
