Sprint's ad for Samsung Galaxy S III shows off S Beam 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

I have an S3 and fits in my pocket pretty well. I'm sitting down right now and, nope no damage.
17. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
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?

Well played, but it still doesn't change the fact that you have 12 year old hands

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.

i've had the sgs3 for over a month and it fits in all my pockets, sounds like you just want one and are jealous.

lol was that the best you could come up with? "put in a jeans pocket and sit down" i'm not even gonna bother reading further down from here.
34. RapidCat (Posts: 351; Member since: 12 Jun 2012)
why people complain, i have one and i don't care the build, what inside the plastic matter

i got a big d**k and i need big phone.....i don't need barbie phone!

Not really an original feature. ICS introduced the Android Beam feature which is what S-Beam is based on.
3. networkdood (Posts: 6329; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
Why is this a news article - we all know Samsung GS3 has the S-Beam...same commercial on any other major carrier.
4. networkdood (Posts: 6329; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
ahhh, man...someone minused me and now I am sad :-(
5. adi4u4882 (Posts: 135; Member since: 10 Jan 2012)
That's thumbing down bro :)
Not minused or something else
6. joey_sfb (Posts: 3717; Member since: 29 Mar 2012)
i don't know about S-Beam till i saw the Sprint Girl Ad.
Good Ad btw.
38. networkdood (Posts: 6329; Member since: 31 Mar 2010)
seriously? Where have you been? Under a rock?
21. Mxyzptlk (Posts: 5198; Member since: 21 Apr 2012)
Doesnt seem as functional in my humble opinion.
24. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
It's good if you have 2 S3s , sending all that HD video through Bluetooth would take time otherwise lol

Why don't you wait for another 5-50 years till it comes on iPhone? And then we can go around boasting its the best thing ever since automatic flushing toilets.

I'm pretty sure that's not even how S Beam works. And It's really not that amazing of a feature.
I know I'm probably going to be attacked for this, but other than having good specs, I don't think there's anything exceptionally amazing about the SIII. S Beam is not very useful (and doesn't it only work w/ Samsung devices?), pop up play is stupid, etc.
It's just another android device to me.
35. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
Listen, E. N, I wanna know what you want from the S3? Holographic projectors?
It is the best smartphone around. That is why it's special.
What is so special about the 4S? Just another feature phone to me
41. E.N. (Posts: 2395; Member since: 25 Jan 2009)
Just as long as you guys know that the phone is not "revolutionary." It's basically just the latest Android device with the latest specs. The only thing remotely new and exciting is smart stay. And even that is somewhat underwhelming.
And why are we talking about the 4S again? I thought we were talking about Samsung's features.
42. wassup (Posts: 565; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
It's definitely more innovative than the 4S was.
And we're talking about the 4S because you think that it is 'revolutionary '... just showing you that it's not.
Oh and btw, I'm willing to bet as soon as apple copies Samsung with their iBeam app they'll release for their NFC phones, you'll be talking about how revolutionary it is.
44. voxmarc (Posts: 321; Member since: 22 Aug 2012)
yeah right...but if iPhone have this feature it would be awesomeness.....like the website a big fruitty fan!

dont try to convince others which OS is better. individual has different mindset, diff opinion and so on.
