Which feature do you like most in the Samsung Galaxy S III?
0. phoneArena 03 May 2012, 16:03 posted on
Now that the big announcement is already behind us, we wanted to ask you, dear reader, which one of the new features you find most appealing in the Samsung Galaxy S III. Maybe you are fascinated by the quad-core processor in the international version, or the new camera shenanigans. Or is it how Samsung managed to cram a 4.8" display in a body slightly larger than the Galaxy S II?...

I liked the pop up video thing, I thought that was really cool..
Btw, are you sure about the regular SIM because other sites are reporting Micro sim.

Well, I searched a bit and it looks like it does have regular SIM and that's a good thing.

Our troops on the ground confirmed a micro SIM in the end :)

if i had to pick a non hardware feature, it would be the "natural interaction ". if Samsung pulls that off well, that is going to be the stand out feature other than the screen to regular customers.

any feature that is infront of you at all times but works invisibility to make things seamless and intuitive is a huge step. the neat thing is that the better It works the less u will notice it.

True, i was just thinking this morning how good it would be if I could shout "Shut up" to the phone alarm clock, instead of getting up just to snooze it, and here it is, on the Galaxy S III...

ha.. they were staking out your dreams.. I guess they wanted to make sure you weren't counting "sheep ". har har ... lol ;)

I bet that S voice can be modified to respond to "Shut up!" for the alarm. :D

And hopefully 'shut the f*ck up' for mornings you just need to sleep it in!!

make sure you set it on snooze, so that way when you yell at it a second time, it wakes up your iphone using neighbor that just had another alarm fail that morning. lolz :)

Remixfa I love uor ideas and we have a lot in common but 2 years ago when I had a 3G woke me up for school everyday without ever failing

every year iphones seem to fail on .. what was it.. daylight savings time? Its a known bug that still affects some people even with iOS5. Its not as bad as it once was, but its still there..
they cant even get a simple clock app right.. OI...

There is an app for Android called "Wake Voice" that allows you to do just that. I have it on my DROID 1 which I pretty much use as an alarm clock....

Am I the only one who gets reminded of the Nokia C7? I love this design!

Despite the processor disappointment (for US LTE versions), I think this is overall a good evolution of Samsung's line. I think the 4.8 inch screen will turn off some people; for them, 4.3 tends to push it. (I don't mind personally, btw; I'm loving my Note)
It'll be even more fun to see what comes out around the holiday season. I'll be eligible to upgrade around January or February of next year, so I'll be paying special attention.

considering all this "Nature UI" is doing at any given time, im scared to see of how poorly the S4 pushes that + the 720p resolution + all of android's regular running services. There are somethings 4 cores can do better than 2.. heavy multithreading is one of them.

Quad-Core Exynos is best feature...camera app (20 burst shots)...Video Pop up...S Voice.

I would have picked processor (by a hair), but I had to fall back on battery/SD (longtime favorites of mine), since they are stuffing a Krait in this phone for the US.
It's not different enough from the Nexus to make me wait 2 more months and go onto a 2-year contract, so I'm going to buy an off-contract Nexus and move to T-Mo. After 10 months the cheaper contract will pay for the phone, and I'll sell it and jump on one of the newer models next year with better processors AND LTE all built into one package.

Im so tired of reading about this quad core gsIII. We are not getting the quad core gsIII so stop telling us it will have quad core!!!!!!!

I love the "old school" plastic case & the excelent Pentile pixel density! :-|

I don't need a "premium feel" on my handset.
I'm okay with it as long as it's durable, resistant, and smooth

I'm taken on everything but the design,can't wait to have it hands on soon
23. remixfa (Posts: 14255; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
im not really gaga over any phone design really.. i dunno.. maybe im just too much of a specs nerd to care. lol

now sammy can teach htc, sony and etc a lesson that we can still have removable.batty and microsd at the same time without comprisming on size and weight..
its a bad sign that htc and sony chosen to jump into.the isuck bandwagon. well done sammy, this is what i call innovation and being active in respoding customers needs
