Samsung's Galaxy S III looks more elegant and thin than the company's previous smartphones, with an even larger display. It is a fantastic media consumption unit.

The Galaxy S III includes several physical ways to share data between devices. These include NFC using Android Beam (a standard capability in Android), S-Beam (Samsung's augmentation of Beam), and Wi-Fi Direct (the Wi-Fi standard that allows enabled devices to share content peer to peer). All of this is easily set up in the phone's Wi-Fi settings.

re: Samsung Galaxy S III Visual Tour: Android Superphone
that all is very nice, but how long does it work with one battery charge? how good is the basic function -- the phone -- the range?, where is the antenna? e.g. the i Phones used to have where you hold the device with your hand..

Want. BTW, I have Call Rejection notifications on my Droid 3 running Gingerbread. Is this carrier/platform-specific feature?
