It knows when you want to talk: If you’re messaging and want to call instead, simply lift your phone to ear and it will dial your friend automatically.

It keeps track of your loved ones: a glance at your friend’s photos will show you their current SNS status.
It responds to your words: you can tell it to wake up, answer, even take a photo.
It shares what’s in your heart: place two Galaxy S IIIs back-to-back and you can transfer pictures, music, videos, and more.
