Samsung Galaxy S III, the Redeemer!
More Features to Lust After the S III
Since the legendary entrance of Siri on the market, avid users and consumer reviewers have become its messengers that preached the greatness of the voice-controlled software in the highest decibel. Although it didn’t enjoy the most attractive reviews about it (especially the widely-touted issue of Siri uttering cusswords and expletives to the persistent user!), Apple certainly got the bang for its buck when it released the iPhone 4S with Siri.
But as with all things, a lot of other tech companies want to strip Apple of its colorful robes. And what better way to reduce Apple’s lush territory into a wasteland but to attack iPhone 4S’s most salient feature- and this is where Samsung Galaxy S III’s S Voice shall boom as a shattering reverb to all our sleeping sensibilities!
The ‘S Voice,’ I can say, is more useful but less bombastic than what others deem it to be. It’s a cloud-based speech recognition system that enables you to launch an app and initiate some native phone functions through voice commands. Throwing out simple questions is a fun exercise, as it makes use of the web to search for relevant answers. But there is a drawback: If common phrases propel the S Voice to give you correct answers, names, numbers, and high-flown terms will usually yield a senseless or confused response.
So far, there are a limited number of hands-on reviews about the S Voice because the Samsung Galaxy S III is still very new. And as it stands right now, S Voice, contrary to what Siri has reaped, is not the biggest selling point of the Galaxy S III.
CAMERA and BEST PHOTO
Unlike its immense internal power, Samsung didn’t focus much on augmenting the camera capabilities of the Galaxy S III. Like the iPhone 4S, it takes still pictures through an 8-megapixel camera, and records full HD 1080 video at 30 frames per second. In fact, this is one hell of a feat!
Add to that is the Best Photo Feature that takes eight photos in quick succession and chooses the best from the bunch. You can do it by pressing the shutter button long enough. Do not worry, if its choice does not match with yours, you can manually select the photos that you want to keep. I believe HTC One X also has the same feature.
In spite of the heavy power juice that S III’s quad-core processor demands, its 2100mAh battery can still keep the unit alive for an entire day’s use. And this pretty much includes rigorous use of the handset like long web browsing sessions, email-checking, music streaming. However if you intend to use the phone for watching videos and movies, expect its stamina to underperform. You can charge it via Micro USB.
That’s the wrap up of our discussion about Samsung Galaxy S III. I hope that you learned more from this short review. If you zeal for Android phones, consider this so called ‘Super Phone’!
