With only 4 days until the UK release date of the Samsung Galaxy S3, Android fans eagerly await to get their hands on Samsung’s flagship phone for 2012.
We’ve put together a Samsung Galaxy S3 video review that shows off some of the “designed for humans” key features of the Samsung Galaxy S3. Check out the video to see demonstrations of S-Beam, Pop up Play and more on the Samsung Galaxy S3.
The design of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is truly beautiful. With its curved edges; smooth to the touch and lightweight for a supersized handset at just 133 grams, the S3 bares no burden in your hands. Find out the best Samsung Galaxy S3 deals.
Running the tasty Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS (4.0), the Samsung Galaxy S3 serves up a tasty user interface. The S3 really is inspired by nature, with its water rippling effect as you swipe your hand across the display.
There’s a rather handy 1.4GHz quad core processor thrown in there too, which makes multitasking effortless and pain free as complex apps and multimedia flow with ease. One feature that really demonstrates this, is the Pop Up Play feature that lets you watch downloaded video content whilst browsing the net, texting friends or whatever you fancy. The ability to move the Pop Up display whilst running without lag or stutter, truly shows off just how effortless the Samsung Galaxy S3 finds multitasking.
Designed for Humans?
As Samsung point out, their Galaxy S3 is “Designed for Humans”. Well aren’t most mobile phones? Samsung aren’t referring to their core consumer base here, rather their focus to remove annoying and time consuming processes and replace them with interactivity that’s a little more human-like.
With Smart Stay, the front facing 720p HD camera on the Galaxy S3 tracks eye retina movement to see if you’re looking at the 4.8 inch display. Only when you look away, will the S3 display black out and lock. The front facing camera can even distinguish the rotation of your eyes, so that the display matches according. It can be frustrating when you’re lying in bed and your smartphone rotates against your viewing angle; Smart Rotation conquers this problem.
As well as seeing, the Samsung Galaxy S3 also listens. The S-Voice feature means your phone can be unlocked by you just saying your predefined message. You can even tell the S3 to turn up the volume of your favourite track, or let you snooze for another 5 minutes.
Intelligence is also seen through the Direct Call feature which will automatically call a friend when you hold the phone to your ear. It’s a great shortcut when you know ringing will save time over a text.
Smart Camera features on the S3
The 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video record, might not sound like an advancement past the Samsung Galaxy S2, but with several smart features packed in. With barely any shutter lag, your S3 camera is on the ball to take some great photos. There’s a 20 shot burst mode which includes Best Photo; the option where the S3 can recommend photos based on smiling and in focus. The Samsung Galaxy S3 can even wait until that perfect smile is visible before taking a snap. Magical!
The impressive camera also hosts some rather tasty sharing functions. Social Tag links your stored photos of friends with their Facebook and Twitter streams. By viewing a photo of a friend, you can be presented with these social features, plus the ability to call or text them. Like a human, the S3 never forgets a face, so once it is set up, your friends are linked automatically. With Buddy Photo Share, you have the option to upload these automatically to social networking sites, the moment you capture them, with your friends already tagged. Talk about time saving technology!
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is a real contender to become the best selling smartphone for 2012. With over 10 million pre-orders before its 30th March launch, there’s a global demand for this handset.
We even have Samsung Galaxy S3 upgrade deals where for a limited time you can get a free 16GB microSD card, case and screen protector worth £64.99.
