Share Photos Instantly

Gesture Smarter

The Galaxy S III goes beyond swiping and pinching. Special motion gestures let you do things easier and more intuitively than ever before. For example, to capture a screen shot, just swipe your hand across the screen. To get to the top of a list, just tap the top of your phone. Or if you're texting someone and want to call them, just put the phone to your ear. It doesn’t get any smarter than that.

Speak, and the Galaxy S III will Listen

S Voice™ responds to your every voice command, acting as your on-board personal assistant to give you helpful, accurate information, dial phone numbers, send messages, open apps and more. It will follow your commands and answer your questions quickly and intelligently. You can tell your phone to wake you up, take a photo, answer a call, send a text message or play your favorite song. In fact, thanks to S Voice, you might never talk to real people again.

Simplify any Task

Samsung TecTiles™ is the short-hand way to operate your Galaxy S III. Just program your “tiles” to automatically handle repetitive actions, like changing settings or performing certain tasks. After that, all you’ll need is a simple tap of your phone. It can launch apps, connect you to Facebook® or Twitter® or share a contact with any NFC-enabled phone. TecTiles are sold separately.

Memories in a Moment

The Galaxy S III is as powerful as it is stylish. For starters, the camera has 8.0 megapixels and absolutely zero shutter lag, so you can catch memories the moment you press the shutter. Want more? Take up to 20 continuous shots in seconds with Burst Shot. The front-facing camera even has a full 1.9 megapixels, so you can get yourself into the HD action.

I just can't say enough good things about my Samsung Galaxy S3. I use it to organize my life, keep track of appointments, navigate to destinations far and wide and reach out to people on the go! I have doctor's appointments and other important things for my family and our foster kids to track and when we're going somewhere new it really helps to plug in the address into the calendar and let the built in Google maps tell me how to get there. The only down side is that navigation uses a lot of battery power but it's so worth it. The phone & dialing features has an easy to navigate, user friendly, common sense interface methodology that makes it easy to use even for a first time smartphone owner. There is also plenty of memory to hold ALL of my numbers plus songs and apps. Even my home phone has a limited number of spaces for phone numbers but not my Galaxy S3! I also love the level of support and education that Samsung gives you as a customer via email and online tutorials and...

This will be my 1st product review for a cell phone. I bought this phone a week ago, and I will say it's by far my fave smartphone ever. I've owned other smartphones and they were good but this phone is the most fun, and interactive. Great job Samsung!
