Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

Much work has gone into the soft­ware of the SIII. Call it an app, ser­vice or soft­ware, this smart­phone fea­tures ‘S Voice’, a voice as­sis­tant sim­i­lar to Ap­ple’s Siri. Press­ing the home key twice ac­ti­vates S Voice, but it came across as a gim­mick as it did not work well with our thick In­dian ac­cent and was slower then Siri. The ‘smart stay’ fea­ture uses the front cam­era to pre­vent the screen from dim­ming or go­ing into auto-lock while the phone is be­ing used for read­ing or brows­ing. This worked well. So did the ‘di­rect call’ fea­ture that tracked the hu­man ac­tion of call­ing a per­son in be­tween a mes­sage con­ver­sa­tion. There is also ‘pop up play’ that can be used for watch­ing video in a small part of the screen while us­ing the phone for any other work like mes­sag­ing. The SIII also of­fers 50GB free stor­age of Drop­box to its users.
