How to Retrieve Deleted Photos from Galaxy S3 Mini

Several days ago, Samsung just dropped its new phone – Galaxy S3 mini which is a smaller version of Galaxy S3 in October in German. Galaxy S3 mini’s hitting the market at this moment reminds people of the great competition between Samsung and Apple. Of course Galaxy S3 mini is regarded as one of the greatest competitors of the newly-issued iPhone5. Then, compared with Apple’s new generation iPhone – iPhone 5, what is the shinning point of Galaxy S3 mini?

JK Shin said Galaxy S3 mini is designed for the middle and lower-range market segment. That is to say compared with iPhone5, Galaxy S3 mini is more competitively priced. By narrowing its screen size to 4 inches, Galaxy S3 mini has a similar appearance with the original Galaxy S3 but just with a smaller size. According to the report, Galaxy S3 mini comes with a super AMOLED display with an 800×480 resolution. And the phone sports a 5MP rear-facing camera with LED flash.

In this case, I think Galaxy S3 mini is a great competitive smartphone for the people who love to take photos. It is absolutely a powerful phone which can really bring them more happiness. However, things are not always so satisfying. Sometimes the precious photos might be deleted by false operation or even lost strangely. It is really a pity.
