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

0. phoneArena 07 Sep 2012, 06:54 posted on

Sprint's new ad for the Samsung Galaxy S III shows off the S Beam feature on the phone, allowing users to share files by merely tapping another S Beam enabled handset; that's only part of the story as Sprint's unlimited data is another focus of the spot...

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.

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

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.

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.
