Sony and its UI maybe the worst between android manufacturers.
it doesn't even have half of TW software functions and tricks.

I'm not dissing Samsung, like i said I'm just saying. If you're just bashing about one single word i said then there's something wrong with you.
and for your info, you obviously have never used a Sony phone before.
the following features may be different but they nearly function the same:
The music feature? Sony has it already called smart connect.
Sorting the most recent apps? Sony has it already for their apps menu.
Multi window? Sony has it already called mini apps.
and just to let you know, If you ever read any reviews, articles, personal opinions from others you have no idea what youre information you are missing. I've used Samsung products before including the S3 and note 2. Samsung pushes out too many features, yes they're not bad but you don't even realize its there and you don't/barely use it.
Sony pushes out features that people uses for sure, not sitting at the back wasting your space.
I'm sorry if my words have offended you, lets not start a war here.

You must be SONY's Sales Person.. or You Study Sony's Marketing.
25. buggerrer (Posts: 285; Member since: 21 Sep 2011)
you nailed it, he must be a salesman lol !
who is on earth saying that Sony beats Samsung in UI and software features!
and since when there is a good plastic or bad since most of the phones use "polycarbonate", he just show us how ignorant he is.
Damn PlayStation kids, who praise anything Sony made .. even if its sh!t !

Sony's UI doesn't beat samsung's UI in terms of features,but it looks better than samsung's UI in my opinion.most phones use polycarbonate,it's not about whether the plastic is good or not, its about the feel. Look at the s3/note 2,it has a glossy finish and just feels uncomfortable in the hand,unlike the Xperia XT.

All my friends who are having Sony phones are using Go launcher,as they are unable to bear with the default UI..

So Sony has S Pen functionality and multi view window functionality? Do they also have the functionality to detect when you are looking at the screen to keep the screen on? Or keep it from accidently rotating to landscape mode? Instead of making such a stupid statement with no examples to back it up with, how about you just not say anything at all? Itll prevent you from looking even more foolish.

lol learn to read please. If you dont even take your time reading other people's post then why bother commenting?
btw I used the word "most"
22. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 2941; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
You mentioned a bunch of crap that I have never seen before. Please show me how multi view and this mini app are EXACTLY the same. Lol you are just butt hurt Sony isnt at Samsungs game when it comes to popularity.
24. Katrina (Posts: 65; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)
LOL youre just making a fool out of yourself. DUDE LEARN TO READ HOLY.

Wow really thats all you can say!?! Damn you really proved me wrong!!! Video? Photo? No? Then please shut it already lol
Im not going to take one freaking sentence that is all based on opinion and believe it as fact.
Face it, Sony is far behind Samsung and get over it already.

if sony is so great why are average people not interested in their phones? here in dubai, ive only seen 3 xperia s and all of them are women, s3 note bb and iphones are selling like hotcakes. you might think highly of sony but sales matter and s3 and the gnote are selling wildly in comparison to sony's phones.

U fool sony is no match for Samsung. Sony s***ks . Xperia tx is beautiful but software and hardware is worst. Don't compare looks

I don't know that you mean by "Sony already have 'most' of the features like that already", Sony has nothing like the multi-window or pop-out video.
2. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5559; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
the multi-window and the Facebook thing are neat but i thought the SIII did most of these things when it launched. xD
they better be careful too, they're walking into the realm of Moto's Smartactions and Moto may not take kindly to them being there...
3. MaineMan91 (Posts: 25; Member since: 26 Jul 2012)
why would they put the same features on this phone as on the note 2, if this is the case there is no real big reason to upgrade to the note 2
4. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5559; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
xD one would not upgrade from the SIII to the Note II. the Note II is a bigger alternative to the SIII.
5. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5611; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
IMO, the compelling value proposition for the Note II (other than larger screen size, quad core CPU + 2 Gb RAM) is the S-pen. Being able to see the contents of e-mails by hovering the S-pen over the e-mail without actually opening the e-mail is the definition of impressive. No S-pen for the GS III.
14. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5559; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
the Note II was probably just able to support the 4412 because it's big enough to have a separate LTE radio and the Note II also has a big enough battery to compensate for using a separate radio and besides the 4412 isn't just oodles more powerful than the S4. the US Variants of the SIII match the Note II's 2GB of RAM and the SIII's smaller size is the trade off for the S-Pen. a Stylus doesn't make sense for a phone the size of the SIII and it's not something i'd really miss with it.
32. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5611; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
There is a separate LTE radio in the GS III (I can send/receive e-mail while I am talking on the phone). I suspect the problems with the GS IIIs may have been with the LTE communication chipset (but that is just me speculating, I don't know for certain).
Whether there is room for a stylus or not in the GS III, the function of the S-pen to be able to preview e-mails is something else. I quickly scan my Inbox, and reply to the e-mails that I need to, without having to open each and every e-mail to see what the sender is saying. That alone justifies the price of admission of the Note II (for me).
41. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5559; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
no, phones with the S4 have Qualcomm's LTE radios integrated into the SoC. no Exynos variants have that which is why Exynos chipsets aren't coming state side in devices with LTE connectivity.
well then it sounds like the Note II is more appropriate for you but market-wise it's not an upgrade over the SIII, it's an alternative. that's all i'm saying.

dayum dayum.... here comes My S III... look out iPhones and Ones.... lol

Its great to be a GS3 owner, it really is :D Samsung are spoiling us, the Multi-view feature alone sets the GS3 and Note2 far apart from other smartphones, these two smartphones are truly far ahead of anything on the block, they are made for true power users who want a smartphone that can multitask properly, and only GS3 AND NOTE2 offer this, great work Samsung :)
My GS3 using both Multi-view AND Pop-up Play (running Google Maps, and Google Chrome while watching a video all in ONE screen):http://i759.photobucket.com/al

So cool to see these features being added to our SIII, go Samsung! Keeps getting better and better.
16. amozhi (Posts: 96; Member since: 23 Oct 2012)
Great work Samsung...We expect mobile PC on SIV :-)
35. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
I already have a great pocket PC in the S3.. my desktop goes through days of not being turned on.
19. RORYREVOLUTION (Posts: 2941; Member since: 12 Jan 2010)
Too bad a software update cant get rid of the pentile display lol. I never had any problems with it before until I got the Note 2. Going back you can see the difference, brighter, sharper, colors are more accurate, etc. Samsung really listened to the consumers and I cant wait to see what they have planned next.
29. SamsungFan (Posts: 201; Member since: 16 Apr 2012)
Sony s**ks and sony is no match for Samsung . There is no device to compete with galaxy s3
33. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
That is why this still is the best phone on the market.
And it's just the beginning, software wise.
Samsung is just heating up for their software onslaught next year .. just wait and see :)

boring samsung feature!!! as for the lock screen with facebook notification... why do one as to go through so much s**t while on the lumia 920 all u do is tap on the lock botton and see all ur facebook details except for password??/
38. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
Lol, another Nokia retard that can't even put couple of sentences together.
I like to keep my fb details as far away from the interface as possible..but I guess your phone suits dummies like you perfectly.
I hope someone takes it and has some fun with your account, kid
37. duwiegeneral (Posts: 48; Member since: 07 Dec 2012)
also there is a media player call power ams which as a feature that allows u to go back to ur favorite song when pluged in... again boring. cant all u samsung owner's nt notice that samsung s3 was a choice to ave a one on one race with the ifool's?????
39. skymitch89 (Posts: 1044; Member since: 05 Nov 2010)
It doesn't really matter what features Samsung takes form the Note 2 and adds to the S3, I still plan to get the Note 2. It's got a bigger and better screen (non-pentile), S-Pen, and a quad-core processor (unlike the US variant of the S3). I'm just hoping that the price goes down sometime within the next 2-4 months.
