Samsung Galaxy S3 Specifications and Review

The much awaited and talked about Samsung Galaxy S3 will be available from May 29, 2012 onward, and this is one phone really worth the wait. It succeeds the Samsung Galaxy S2, which according to Samsung’s high standards did not sell really well. But the S3 is different, and definitely raises the bar as far as smartphones are concerned.

Let’s have a look at some of the Samsung Galaxy S3 specifications, and review it in short too.

The Samsung Galaxy S3 has some cool innovations. The most exciting and useful addition to this phone is the new sensor it has. The new sensor tracks your eyes, so as long as you are looking at the phone, watching something, reading something, the phone will not go dim and lock itself on you. till now, with our phones, to overcome this problem, we used to set the screen lock to a longer time. Not now, as ‘Smart Stay’ uses the sensor to know that you are using the phone.

Another good feature is that if you are view a contact on your phone, or a message from someone, and you put the phone to your ear, the S3 will dial that contact for you. The S3 also comes with ‘S-Voice’ for voice control, which works even better than Siri. The 8MP camera comes with a 20-shot burst mode. Other useful features are ‘Buddy Photo Share’ which automatically shares a photograph you take with people whose faces are recognized, and the ‘S-Beam’, which facilitates file transfer quickly by touching devices together.

All in all, the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a good step ahead from the S2, loaded with some awesome features, which is why I think it will get a decent run in the global market, at least till the next iPhone comes out.
