Submission + - Samsung Galaxy S III Launched, Hands-On Testing (

MojoKid writes: "One of the most highly anticipated Android phones of the year is the Samsung Galaxy S III and its official launch is today. This smartphone comes with a number of new features we haven't seen on many Android phones including improved voice control functionality, new sharing features, and Near Field Communication features including Samsung's new TecTiles which are programmable NFC tags that you can use to control the phone's many features and functions. For example, you can program a TecTile to automatically change phone settings for a particular location, send a text message, open apps etc. Samsung's S Voice functionality works much the same way as Apple's Siri: You can use plain English to tell the phone what you want it to do. You can set alarms, update your social networks, get navigation instructions and ask basic questions. During tests with the Galaxy S III, the performance and accuracy with S Voice was comparable to Siri on an iPhone 4S. Performance-wise the Galaxy S III handled well in the benchmarks with Qualcomm's dual-core SnapDragon S4 offering a very fluid experience across Samsung's gorgeous 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display."
