Sprint's ad for Samsung Galaxy S III shows off S Beam feature
Sprint's latest television spot for the Samsung Galaxy S III shows off the S Beam feature on the phone in a very emotional way. Watching the life of a young girl pass in front of your eyes shows the dramatic use of photography. More importantly for owners of the device, it shows off the S Beam feature which allows videos, to be shared simply by tapping two S Beam enabled devices together. It's a clever way to show off the feature.

Being an ad for Sprint as well, you would expect that the carrier's unlimited data plan would somehow be worked into the spot, and it is. Perhaps watching a human life go from birth to 12 years old isn't the typical thing you'd find in a smartphone ad and might be suited more for a greeting card spot or commercial touting long distance service. But you don't sell 20 million units of anything without making a connection to the world's heart and mind and obviously the Samsung Galaxy S III has made that connection.

Name a phone you can put in your pocket and not risk damaging.

any 4.3 inch screen phone or less. anything bigger than 4.3 is statistically proven unpractical as a phone

Dude, STFU, which statistics? It is statistically proven that you are an idiot.
People go to it because it's the best phone around till the s4 comes out.
If you have the hands of a 12 year old then you fail

Aww, is the widdle boy mad that his hands are too small to use the best phone around?
I can use the S3 perfectly and comfortably without any problems, you get used to it.
You can always do hand surgery to get bigger hands if you're insecure about your hands you know ...
Oh and btw, trying to abuse family, what are you? 12?... oh wait, you are.

Ha ha, the widdle boy is mad ... aww, and btw if you damage phones by just putting phones in your pocket and sitting down, stop wearing skinny jeans! If you're a boy, it's inappropriate unless you're you're 12. Oh wait ...
Btw, drop spaghetti? WTF?

I have put every phone I have owned in my back pocket.. sitting, standing.. never had any problems its no different than my wallet, never broken a phone from it being in my pocket. To say its unpractical is just silly, A good bit of us men have big hands and big pockets and don't have any issues. :) and doing things on a larger phone like watching videos or surfing the web tends to be much better than on a smaller phone just sayin.

I use my galaxy s2 4.5" in my rear pocket,but usually just be holding it. I find it very umcomfortable in front pockets(unless i remove the case which is not much of a difference).

I saw a girl typing on her galaxy s3 yesterday with both hands, it was like she couldnt reach the top letters with just 1 hand.

I dont want to get "used to a phone" or wear baggy pants.i want the phone to be comfortable period.and the s3 will be the best phone till the note 2 comes out, lets be real the only thing that changes is the screen size and the name. So we can say the s3 is an old phone already.

Not really an original feature. ICS introduced the Android Beam feature which is what S-Beam is based on.
