    Software:

    Samsung has introduced a plethora of software enhancements for Samsung Galaxy S3, including a Siri challenger: S Voice.

    Here are few of features Samsung Galaxy S3 will offer:

    Smart Stay:
    Samsung Galaxy S3 will dim its brightness when you’re asleep. So long as you are awake and will look at the phone, it will maintain a bright display.

    Direct Call:
    Samsung claims that Galaxy S3 knows when you want to talk. If you’re messaging and want to call instead, simply lift your phone to your ear and it will dial your friend automatically.

    Smart Alert:
    It knows when you’ve been away from your phone – vibrating nudge lets you know missed calls or messages.

    Social Tag:
    It keeps track of your loved ones: a glance at your friends’ photos will show you their current SNS status.

    S Voice:
    Samsung Galaxy S3 responds to your words:
    you can tell it to wake up, answer, even take a photo.

    S Beam:
    Place two GALAXY S IIIs back-to-back and you can transfer pictures, music, videos, and more.

    All Share Cast:
    Stream your photos, videos – even the game you’re playing – onto big screen, with your phone doubling as a controller.

    Buddy Photo Share:
    It shares with everyone instantly: as the phone recognizes your friends faces, it can share photos with them instantly.

    All Share Play:
    Galaxy S3 lets you share with everyone: access to documents and multimedia files when you work somewhere else.

    In addition Samsung Galaxy S3 will allow you to watch HD videos while you text, or while you are writing a long email. A distraction some may call it – fun for others.

    Samsung also partnered with Dropbox to offer 50GB of cloud space for Samsung Galaxy S3 owners.

    All top sites including engadget calls HTC One X the best Android phone for 2012.

    http://www.engadget.com/2012/05/25/samsung-galaxy-s-iii-review/

    I am really glad i made the right decision in going for the One X last month for 52k. I will try and use the S3 for a few days though. All sites talk about the cheap feel of the S3… I am sure it cant be that bad. I’ve used S2 for a year and it is still a rock solid phone, the One X truly feels a whole new world now.

    • Arsalan

      Lolz! idiot, you made a wrong decision almost every tech site tagged Galaxy s3 as the winner. please update your knowledge before making a fool of your self.

  • gadgetguru

    I wont call you an Idiot… jou bolta hay wohi hota hai :p

    I have even provided a link to the most respected tech site on the net and you just say almost every tech site???

    When the best site says One X is the best then it surely is.

  • Yasir Habib

  • LATIF BATAWALA

    regrett to inform you that htc one x specs are better thEN GALAXY S3 BOTH IN TERMS OF CAMERA AND PROCESSING SPEED. I HAVE THEM BOTH AND I FIND ONE X TO BE BETTER THEM S3

    STILL USERS OF HTC WILL NEVER LIKE S3 AND USERS OF S2 WILL NEVER LIKE ONE X THOUGH IN TRUTH THE SENSE UI OF HTC IS ONE THOUSAND TIMES BETTER THEN SAMSUNG

    AS FOR PRISE IT’S PRISE WILL COME DOWN TO 52,000.00 WITH IN 15 DAYS SO DO NOT BE IN A HURRY AND START SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY

    TAKE CARE
