Found myself in the Verizon store this weekend taking care of some business. I picked up the Galaxy S3 again.


It makes a great phone if you have a purse... I mean satchel to carry it in.

It's odd you say that and people have no problem carrying out ipads around without a purse or satchel

seriously, its really not that big of a phone for your pockets compared to the note 2.

unless you wear little boys waist size 4-20 or something its slim enough to fit into any pants.
once you get used to it after two weeks , grab another candy bar sized phone. HUGE difference.


edit:

if you havent rooted the phone but want 4g wi fi tethering,
foxfi works well. The free version has a usage limit that requires you to restart FoxFi to continue using free mode.

You can purchase the full version key to unlock this.

It's odd you'd use that as a comparison considering people don't walk around with iPads in their pockets.

obviously if your a very small framed male, you have a point. most of us go a little larger than 100 lbs and don't wear a women's size 0. again, no issues putting it in my pocket, but its not the phone for everyone.

grammar polize!

I do like that I can hold left menu button, say "google!"(always tilting it so that the bottom of the phone towards my lips) pause and say,

"what day is the end of the world?"

" what is the answer to the universe, life and everything"

gives me the right answers. The sports ones are pretty sweet.

Anyone notice the email background went from black to white?

same thing on all jelly bean.


get into google now or at any google search bar say "google!"

and the Mic icon will appear and await your question or command.

so its just one step.

Quote:
You can initiate a Voice Search or Voice Action in several ways:
•Touch the Microphone icon in the Google Chrome omnibox.
•Touch the Microphone icon on the Home screen or Google Now screen and speak.
•Touch the search bar on the Home screen and say "Google".
•When you're viewing the Google Now screen, you don't have to touch anything. Just say "Google."

Next, speak the terms to search for or the Voice Action to perform.

The ability to trigger a search or action by saying "Google" is called hotword detection. To turn it off or on, start from the Google Now screen and touch Menu > Settings > Voice > Hotword detection.

Question guys... when i text a group with the S3, all of the responses come back seperately rather than staying in the same chat thread, is there a way to configure this, or is this an iPhone thing only... what a pain in the ass when i get a group text and see all the numbers I don't know, and can't reply all....

I downloaded some different texting program that overrides the standard texting program. Problem solved. VZMessanger I think.
