17 Reasons Why You Should Buy the Samsung Galaxy S III Smart Phone

Samsung finally announced the Samsung Galaxy S III after a lot of speculations, rumors, unofficial announcement from the press guys, but when the device came in it had a few stunning features that although not everyone would take advantage of, are those which no other phone has every had. Talk about the smart actions which the Galaxy S III does, no other phone from any brand could make a call when the device was taken near to the user’s ear, or holding the screen and rotating the phone to landscape mode never activated the camera. That all can happen only in the Galaxy S III.

Let’s see what all kept the world stunned with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Ok, here are the features which we wanted to focus on, why the Galaxy S III would be a step ahead of other devices:

Reason 1 – The large screen, but extremely thin bezel

The length of 5.4-inch would make someone feel whether the device would fit well into the hands, but the thin bezel given by Samsung did keep the comfort levels to the max. The Galaxy S III is just 0.34-inch thick, and finally, you won’t be seeing a chin at the bottom.
Although we would see complains flowing around that the design is just the little-bit of changes done from the previous versions of Galaxy, we feel that the design is a lot different and the inspiration taken from nature (that’s what Samsung says) is quite well portrayed, with the color variants “Pebble Blue” and “Marble White”.

Reason 2 – Smart Stay with Eye tracking

It stays active with the screen turned on until you are viewing it and the front camera of the Galaxy S III recognizes the same. The response from the phone is in accordance to your activity. This is a trial of something totally new from Samsung and the users would surely notice it, because the eye tracking technology as what the hands-on show, works pretty well and acts accordingly.

Reason 3 – S Voice

This is a voice recognizing system, which would listen to your commands. It isn’t that productive as the Siri in the iPhone 4S, but the lazy users could take advantage of it and make calls, set alarm, check a website, weather status all with their voice commands rather than typing things out. Few other features and functions of the S Voice include the controlling of volume, launching the camera app and even clicking a picture using the camera. When an alarm rings in the morning, you can just say “snooze” and it would shut the alarm and set itself to ring after a few minutes.

Reason 4 – S Beam (NFC, taken to next level)

The smaller files to be shared between the two similar devices would be instant with the two devices in touch, would send files of size around 10-15 MB within a moment. This is the modified version of the current ICS based NFC service but one won’t be very lucky enough to use it, unless both the users who are trying to share the files are the proud owners of the Galaxy S III.

Reason 5 – Allshare Cast

Gone is the time when you had to plug the HDMI cords and connect the phone to the larger screens. The Allshare Cast does the streaming to the largers screens like TV, wirelessly and this broadcasting of content is done through the Wi-Fi connection.

Reason 6 – Best Photo through Burst Shot

Taking the inspiration from the HTC One X (or was this already in their plans but the One X launched earlier), the 8-Megapixel camera of the Samsung Galaxy S III would capture up to 8 shots per second, and a single burst shot can capture up to 20 scenes at once and it would list all those from which you select the best one and the others are gone in an instant. This would work the best when the object is moving and you can’t rely on a single click. We aren’t sure whether we can select one, or the phone itself selects the best shot automatically but if its the latter one, we would be totally disappointed.

Reason 7 – 1.4GHz Exynos Processor, Pop Up Play

The strong 1.4 GHz Exynos processor has been well portrayed in the Pop Up Play feature. The Galaxy S III would play a video on the top or in the front of any app and while you are using the text messaging app or any chat app, the video would run along and you could place it anywhere on the front and resize it as you wish. The video viewing is limited to just the videos that are stored in the phone, but that shouldn’t get you frustrated as you are getting a lot of storage space. One would at least appreciate the fact that there is an option where you aren’t only emailing or texting, and you get to watch a video along with it.

Reason 8 – Direct Call

You are messaging someone, or replying to their text message and feel that its better to call them rather than type it out, you won’t need to go to the Phone app for that, as the Direct Call option would start calling as soon as you lift the phone in front of the face or near the ear. You don’t need to tap on the screen at all, just the lifting of phone would do the job for you.

Reason 9 – Buddy Share

We won’t ask you to totally and trust this feature, but talking about the function of this feature, the Buddy Share would automatically recognize your friends in the photos that you captured using the Galaxy S III camera and then would share these photos with those friends who are tagged and recognized.

Reason 10 – Camera app shortcut – No usage of button

A pretty simple way, but sometimes would also unnecessarily open the camera app. Tap on the screen and hold, and rotate the phone into landscape mode and it would activate the camera app. This is way better than having the camera shortcut app on the home screen, or opening the apps list to start the camera.

Reason 11 – Smart Alerts using Accelerometer

HTC was having such an option already, but Samsung goes big with the other features tagged along. The Smart Alerts uses the built-in accelerometer of the phone and keeps a track of your usage and if you have received any text messages and missed any calls, as soon as you are back and the accelerometer detects your touch or movement, it would make the phone vibrate to let you know of the unread notifications.

Reason 12 – 4G LTE support

Connectivity is no less these days in any smartphone, and to carry along with the trend (unlike the Apple iPhone), the Samsung Galaxy S III comes with the 4G LTE connectivity, and the advantage would be fully taken of in the U.S. and U.K. where the actual 4G networks with the full-speed wireless connectivity are available.

Reason 13 – Flipboard for Android

Only for the Galaxy S3 users – The famous app for the iOS devices, Flipboard, which is a social integration tool is now available in Android, and for those who are planning to have the Galaxy S III in their hands, have an upper edge over the other Android devices because Flipboard is going to be available only for the SIII. This app would surely come into a few selected phones later on, but the early bird advantage is only for the new S III users.

Reason 14 – Super AMOLED is unexpectedly brilliant

The quality of graphics and display shown on the screen of the Galaxy S III suggests that the Super AMOLED display with the 1280×720 pixels is pretty neat and all the hate talk against the display for not being the Super AMOLED Plus or Retina might stop once experienced. The resolution is good enough for the 4.8-inch screen, and if Samsung had tried to bring out the full HD display here in this size of the screen, we might have seen a stage of oversaturation.

Samsung Galaxy S III 4.8-inch

Reason 15 – High Storage – expandable to 64 GB

The Samsung Galaxy S III is going to come with the 16 GB and 32 GB storage options, and the company says that the internal memory option of 64 GB too is coming soon. But for those with the lesser storage, would be happy with the option of having 64GB in the end, thanks to the MicroSD external storage option. Apart from that, Samsung has collaborated with Dropbox to give an extra storage on the online servers and this is going to be a whooping 50GB! This doesn’t give you an extra storage option, but so much of storage backed up would keep you out of any worry.

Reason 16 – Removable battery, Good capacity

We would not support the second part of the line already, because we haven’t got any battery tests done but for the given specs except the high-end processor, the 2100 mAh capacity is quite something because we had to settle down with the 1650 mAh of the Galaxy S II. The battery can be removed, unlike the latest high-end devices like the Sony Xperia S, HTC One X, Nokia Lumia 800, HTC One V. It holds a big advantage, especially while you are traveling and have a replacement extra battery.

Reason 17 – The Smart Accessories – Wireless Charge, S Pebble

Samsung never brought out any special accessories, which includes the Wireless Charging, the S Pebble which is the music playing companion exclusively for the Galaxy S III. Wireless charging is something that the 3rd party companies have brought in, and a very few phones are compatible to get the wireless charge, but the Galaxy S III users have got one more reason to boast about. Other accessories include the flip cover, similar to the one for the Galaxy Note, and there is an HDMI port included, for those who would not use the wireless AllShare Cast for broadcasting the content on larger screens.

S Pebble

We are blown away with the features and specifications given by the company, but we can’t say that the Galaxy S 3 would be the best smartphone around right now, because there are quite a few things that we weren’t impressed of. We would be listing them out too, but the “Good” outnumbers the “Bad” in the device.

  • Praveen Vijayshankar

    I used the phone for short duration at Croma. Found that it freezes a lot when playing video and changing orientation. Also Sometime the home screen also freezes some times. But the floating video feature is unbelievable.

    But is a beautiful piece of equipment to hold in your hand. Just melts into your hand and screen is magnificent. Pictures and video appear crisp and sharp. Feels truly HD. In the hand, it feels even better that HTC One X. Just wish it was priced lower as it does not seem worth the current market price.

    Just don’t hope that WIFI will be working. Wifi on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is just as bad as on the S2.  None of the workarounds work and you can’t even set a static IP as it wont let you save static IP. WiFi problems are not solved with the Galaxy S3 – so don’t bother upgrading from the Galaxy S2 if that’s what you are hoping for

    Hi, just wanted to point out that those not particular to the plastic feel have to bear in mind that having metal in replacement could , if the asus prime is anything to go by, significantly reduce the reception on the phone such as wifi etc. My contract is due up shortly and I love my S2, so unsure if to upgrade or not. I had thought about the note but a rep at a showroom advised battery life was terrible. Any thoughts?

  • najmus

    worth trying

  • Farhan

    The phone looks worth a try

  • Farhan

    can someone tell me the price of s3

    • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

      A couple of weeks and the official pricing from Samsung would be announced in India. It is expected to be somewhere between Rs. 38000 to Rs. 42000 in the Indian markets.

  • innjung

    The Smart Stay with Eye tracking so cool!

    • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

      Yes we haven’t seen such a feature before this. So it’s an ubercool feature we would be seeing.

  • Farhan

    i am really confused to buy it or not

  • Suraj

    This smartphone is really amazing. Smart stay(eye sensor) is best feature, plus POP UP PLAY shows the multitasking power of quad core processor.

    • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

      Yes the quad core processor has to flaunt itself showing the power, and the Pop up Play does show it pretty well.

    Everybody keeps complaining about the plastic on the s3,how silly is that?
    What exactly sells a phone? It’s not plastic,it’s the user experience you get from the device. Samsung galaxy s3 has just topped the charts with it’s hi-tech user experience.
    Very good post by the way..

    • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

      Thanks for the appreciation. Agreed that in the end, its the experience the user gets would help them decide if they are liking it or not.

  • osang

    …and still a plastic body. Can’t they create something made of metal? I love the feel of Samsung GT-S5610.

  • Vimal

    Features Are Good But I Am Disappointed With Its Design.

  • Aadith sasi

    Reason 8 Direct Call is the best option in consideration to me..really cool and the processor is 1.4Ghz really appreciable handset by samsung..

  • Ganesh

    It is a beast- Enough reason for me.

  • bilal

    Is the wireless chargind and the spebble come with the s3 or we have to buy seperately???

    • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

      No the Wireless charging kit and the S Pebble have to be purchased separately.

      • bilal

        How much cost the wireless charger in france because s3 will be at 649 euros in france

        • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

          We haven’t got the official news and prices of the accessories of the Galaxy S III as of now. Once we find that, we would update you with the same. The wireless charging kits usually come at a price tag of around 80-100 euros, so you may assume that as the pricing but it’s not official.

  • http://www.embiznes.pl Amanda

    Reason 7 saying everything – 1.4GHz is really powerfull processor

  • skk

    Flipboard is also available to other phones…but not from playstore…

  • Janish

    Hi, Do you think it will replace a tab? Should I go for Tab or GS III if I have have to upload files and download stuff as I am a freelance designer

    Thanks

    • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

      A hard question to answer, when you are asking about uploading and downloading the design stuff. In such a case, any Android device would be the same, be it the Galaxy S III or the Tab. You might need to decide based on the screen size you prefer, and when its any heavy design files etc. then the S III would be a better device with a better processor.

  • Rahul Sethi

    whats the expected price in India Androidadvices??

    • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

      The expected price in India is around INR 40000 to 42000.

      • Pavan Somu

        The features are awesome and it’s expensive too. That’s the reason why I need to win this Giveaway :P

  • Jon Ogden

    Yes I agree Chetan, but the near “edge to edge” display is what I have been waiting for in a phone, I do love the HTC One X, but, not being a tablet owner (nor really wanting to be)the Note comes into its own! There have not been many reviews I’ve read that the reviewer hasn’t said he/she wants to keep it! So, don’t know really, the S3 is growing on me and you can pre-order now for £500.00. I am quite sure its coming with 4G even in the UK, the HTC One is £550 with 4G the S3 £500, think I just talked myself into the S3.

  • Jon Ogden

    I am a bit disappointed with the S3, the upgrades in software are cutting edge yes, but I am capable of pressing the green phone button to make a call, voice recognition, I have yet to see people walking along have a chat TO their phone. (Except for Raj from Big Bang Theory hehe) I have been following tech now for many years and with £500 burning a whole in my back pocket cos I don’t like being stuck with contracts For the first time ever I can’t decide between One X, S3 or Galaxy Note!

    • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

      Oh you have set up a competition between the three phones which cannot be easily compared and each of them have their own advantages. Personally being a Samsung fan I still can’t convince anyone to go with Samsung because HTC has brought in one of their best masterpieces lately with the HTC One X.

  • rajo

    Great post about smart phone.

  • me

    these are the dumbest reasons i’ve ever seen to buy a phone, stupid people this phone is shit at least it has a good gpu

    • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

      I would be happy to hear the reasons why you would buy a phone. Actually, just tell if you feel you got a phone which has better features. No company would release a phone just with an intention to let the world know that they have got a new phone.. they release it to make it sell. What most of them lack is to show the USPs.

    • Sanjay R Nath

      Yea other than just processor & design everything else is software oreinted and i think there are apps out there that can do this for other android devices !!

      • http://androidadvices.com/author/chetan/ Chetan Bhawani

        When you talk about the apps, you would have already purchased a low-cost low-range Android phone and used some similar apps.. but the usability and experience with the inbuilt features is totally different from what you see in the apps.
