The smartphone features a revolutionary S voice application that is a voice based assistant like iPhone 4S’s Siri. It is perfectly integrated with Android and applications of the phone. The S voice works perfectly in identifying the Indian accent and acts accordingly. Although at times the S voice application takes up little more time to react but the beauty of this application is that it perfectly understands every word said to it.

In terms of innovations, Samsung has really gone overboard with the Galaxy S III. The device comes with a ‘Smart Stay’ feature that recognises the eyes of the users while browsing the web or doing other such activity requiring display to be on and the moment the user’s eye contact is broken, the device automatically goes to standby mode after a few seconds, thus saving battery charge.

Another feature we liked is the Video Window feature. It allows users to close the video window midway and do something else like checking email during which the video window will float on the display.
