The Samsung Galaxy S3 recently unveiled has been the talk of the smartphone market. Here we will bring you info on the top 10 features of the upcoming smartphone set to release on May 29th beginning in Europe.
1: Wireless charging
The Galaxy S3 includes wireless charging built on the battery, similar to touchstone charging used for Palm devices. It’s a charging pad that uses magnetic resonance, or inductive charging, to re-power the device without the hassle of wires.
2: Smart Stay
Smart Stay is a simple, yet powerful, feature in the S3 that stops the screen from dimming automatically even when performing a task. If the phone senses a user’s hand in front of the screen and detects the user looking at the phone, the screen stays bright.
3: Exynos 4 Quad processor
The featured Exynos quad-core processor is clocked at 1.4GHz along with the 1GB of RAM. Bringing you blazing speeds while dominating benchmarks across the platform.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 offers a thin and light form factor packing the 4.8-inch screen, weighing only 133 grams. In comparison the iPhone 4S weight 140 grams.
The 4.8-inch screen is powered by the stunning Super AMOLED HD display.
5: S Beam
S Beam functions like the Bump app for iOS and Android, where two phones can be “bumped” together to share contacts. S Beam works with Wi-Fi Direct and NFC to move files between two S3 devices by simply tapping the phone together.
6: Ice Cream Sandwich
The Galaxy S3 brings the latest version of Google’s operating system to users. Ice Cream Sandwich also brings more consistent design across Android, though the S3 runs the nature-inspired TouchWiz skin, along with APIs that take advantage of larger screen such as the Galaxy S3′s 4-8-inch display.
7: Three storage options, expandable storage
Like the iPhone 4S, the Galaxy S3 offers 16, 32 and 64GB storage capacities. Additionally, microSDXC expandable storage is available – another 64GB of storage that takes the phone up to 128GB.
8: Best Photo
Best Photo is another powerful feature that only takes seconds to capture. After the zero-shutter lag camera takes 20 photos at once, the Best Photo chooses the top eight photos and allows users to select what he or she considers the best.
9: Buddy Share
Samsung looks to have raised the bar of photo-taking in the Samsung Galaxy S3, even post-shoot. Along with the device grouping people together depending on the tags and faces – so multiple people marked as family will be grouped together – and social network information is brought in through facial recognition. Click on the photos takes users to a friend’s Facebook Wall, or e-mails can be sent by tapping on the photos.
10: Direct Call
Very simple, but very effective, Direct Call allows users to stop a text mid-message and call the user just by bringing the phone to the ear. The S3 calls the user automatically, recognizing the destination of the text for quick access to the call without having to navigate through the menus.
