TouchWiz Nature UX Overview on the Galaxy S III (video)

TouchWiz Nature UX Overview on the Galaxy S III (video)
With the Samsung Galaxy S III the Android phone maker introduced the newest version of its interface overlay over Ice Cream Sandwich called TouchWiz Nature UX. Nature, of course, hints at the Natural Interaction capabilities of the handset, which are a centerpiece of Samsung's new strategy for a holistic approach towards hardware and software.

TouchWiz is more streamlined here in the Galaxy S III, and at the same time has gained plenty of new features like the S Voice communication user-phone, the ability to watch a video picture-in-picture while doing something else, and many other innovative features.

Have a gander at the new TouchWiz Nature UX that will be coming with the Samsung Galaxy S III, and please don't jump when the display units alarm gets set off - these are the risks of live events we are willingly taking on our fragile shoulders.

Samsung has updated its GSII with this and actually did not need to make sth better than this.This phone has everything.It works perfect with lots of feaures.I myself like the design and I am sure when you keep it in your palm you will have a better feeling about that;)

People that don't like the looks and feels of Galaxy S3 go ahead buy a different brand it is a freedom of choices. But you will be sorry if the phone you buy is worst than S3 is 1 of the best superphone in the World.

Revolutionary? Heck no. Evolutionary? Yes. This phone is nothing THAT new. While it is a good incremental upgrade, it doesn't offer anything "life changing".

The phone is great. everyone can see that. but that doesnt mean there cant be anything bad about it. the phone looks ok from the back and is nowhere close to being as beautiful as the oneX. so what. It beats the onex in most departments. its still the better phone. but calling htc's design repetitive wont make it repetitive. its diff from all other htc phones. motorola has great designs too. now say that its better than razr in looks. you wont as it isnt. so face the facts and if you cant then shut up

lol. rumor mill fatigue. had everyone not gone crazy with rumor mill hype people would be dancing in the streets for this phones specs. the ONLY reason people are not more excited is because of rumor letdown. at least its not as bad as the i4s rumor let down. besides, your let down by a phone that is pushing exponentially more pixels than its predicessor, while doing A LOT of things in the background for the "nature UI Interactions ", and yet it still takes the crown as the worlds fastest phone. maybe we need a reality check?

not just that the s2 was/is still a great phone...honestly the only thing that i was missing on my s2 was a hd screen(pentile or not as pentile on a 720p screen is hard to see unless you put your eye balls to the screen and also no ones yet to be complaining about the screen) and always wished the s2 was a little curvier...i am more than happy with the s3 as i never expected anything more than a quad core exynos and hd screen(did think it would be +) and bigger battery.and actually got some extra features like wireless charging and s voice and allshare etc so for me i got what i my opinion the white one looks nice and also people its made out of polycarbonate to the people who say the lumia and one x have a ''better'' plastic...oh yeah i got my micro sd slot and removable battery :)

Not really rumor mill fatigue, Samsung encouraged the hype and set aside their own event for this phone. This would've been less of a letdown if it was announced at MWC.

Lets keep it simple. Design: Galaxy S3 < One X Performance: Galaxy s3 > One X Performance matters more than design to me :D

I applaud SAMSUNG here on this device all they needed to do was BEST the GALAXY S2 mission accomplished on that. Clearly the GALAXY S3 has the BEST in class software, great 4412 quadcore processor, great camera software, just an overall lovely device. Samsung has proven alot since 2011 and the BEST DEVICES on the market today are the GALAXY NOTE, GALAXY NEXUS, GALAXY S2 and now the GALAXY S3. What more can people possibly want Samsung has MAJOR OBLIGATIONS coming with the GALAXY NOTE 2 and the end of the year new GALAXY NEXUS so they have to save the best for last. If your walking around with anything made by Samsung after 2011 then you know you have the BEST devices technology has on the market. These are not some USELESS incremental iphones these are luxury devices apple CAN'T THIS...
