The Galaxy S III has a beautifully large 4.8-inch (720 x 1280) display, crisp 8-megapixel camera, quad-core processor and long-lasting 2100mA h battery. And the speedy new 4G-equipped Galaxy S III model hits Australia on October 9th, complete with Android 4.1 Jellybean. Yet Samsung's best smartphone also gets the little things right, like nudging you when you’ve missed something. Let's take a closer look.
As you can see in this video, the Galaxy S III can automatically take a burst of eight shots and select the best one for you. It sees your best side.
When you pick up your phone, wouldn’t it be nice if it let you know what you’ve missed while you’ve been gone? The Galaxy S III gives you a vibrating nudge to let you know that you’ve missed a call or message.
When you stare directly at the screen, the Galaxy S III’s 1.9-megapixel front camera looks deep into your eyes and can maintain a bright display for your continued viewing pleasure. The result: auto screen dimming, the way it should be.
Another smart Samsung touch: The Galaxy S III knows when you want to talk. When you’re messaging someone and decide to call them instead, simply lift your phone to your ear and Direct Call will dial their number for you.
Tell your internet-connected Samsung Galaxy S III to turn off the alarm for a few minutes and let you sleep a bit more, answer or reject calls, turn your music up (or down), and even tell the camera when to shoot##. No more off-kilter shots while moving your thumb to the shoot button!
Buddy Photo Share
Speaking of photos, the Galaxy S III can recognise faces using your group profiles, and if you’re online, link them to your friends.
Social Tag lets you link the faces in your photo album with your friends' social media streams*. Once it’s set, all you have to do is look at pictures of your friends while connected and you’ll see their current status appear.
AllShare Play makes it easy to send photos or videos to compatible tablets, PCs and TVs.
Another great way to share files: Put the backs of two Galaxy S III phones together, and you can almost instantly (and wirelessly) transfer documents, contacts, photos and home videos.
