It was apparently surprising to people when Min Cho, senior manager at Samsung Mobile communication, took out his Galaxy S III and called it an intuitive device that listens and watches. Samsung S III, third generation Galaxy S series phone, has been one of the most anticipated devices after the iPhone and iPad. Featuring a 1.4 GHz Exynos quad-core processor, Galaxy S III runs on Android 4.0, and could well be the most powerful and the fastest mobile device. With a 4.8″ super AMOLED screen, the Galaxy S III has gone larger to its predecessor by almost 16 percent. There is no doubt that anyone looking at the spec sheet would want to get hold of Galaxy S III but there are some features, missing in the specifications, that are rather more impressive and takes the usability and human interaction to a completely new level.
“Smart Stay”, as they call it, is a fantastic addition to the Galaxy S III that keeps the display screen active even if you do not touch it. The feature that best describes the tag line “it watches you”, lets you read your eBooks or web pages without having to touch the screen, every-now and then, just to prevent the phone from getting into the sleep mode.
The 1.9 MP front camera is not just good enough to capture 720 pi HD video but also recognizes the faces and keenly watches the eye contact which forms the very basis for “Smart Stay”. What’s more fascinating is that Galaxy S III checks and cross-references the pictures, taken through the camera, to that on your phone book app and lets you share those pics to the respective people’s facebook wall, without having the need of even logging in to the Facebook.
Through “S Voice”, Galaxy S III listens to you and responds to the voice commands better than ever. With a little bit of training, Galaxy S III could listen to the owners voice and carry out various functions without the need of having to touch the mobile. Imagine how fantastic it would be to have a phone that works on voice command.
If that was not awe-inspiring enough Galaxy S III, apart for recognizing the voice and face, also senses motion. Its “Direct call” feature lets you call to a number, while messaging, by just lifting the phone and keeping it next to the ear.
Another feature called as “Smart Alert” vibrates the phone automatically to alert you of any missed calls or unread messages as soon you lift the phone after it has been idle for a while. “S Beam” is yet another remarkable feature, deserving a mention here, that allows you to share a 1 GB movie file to another Galaxy S III in just 3 minutes and a 10 MB file in just a couple of seconds.
These set of smart, intuitive and simple features along with the compelling and captivating set of specs have made it certain that Galaxy S III would stand out as a competitor and is all set to lead the race of Android wars with ease.
