INNOVATION WITH INTELLIGENCE
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.
