The Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White is one of the most feature rich, innovative phones on the market, and if you have one (or are about to buy one) chances are you haven’t found all of the fantastic time saving, security or even just plain fun features yet. We took a look at some of the most interesting of the Galaxy S3 16GB White’s less well known capabilities, tricks and tools, to provide a list of three new ideas for how you can make this outstanding smartphone work for you.
Set Your App Shortcuts Up In Folders
It seems obvious, because you’ve been doing it on your computer forever, but did you know that on the Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White you can group your app icons into folders? This can be a much better way of organising the ones you use less regularly than having separate screens for different sets of apps, meaning you can create a folder for games, social media, productivity, tools, and even more niche things like your fitness apps or art apps. The way to do this is to simply drag an icon from an app onto another you want to group it with, which will put the pair of them in a folder. Then you can drag in more apps until you have the folder set up to contain everything you want it to.
Use “Smart Stay”
Does it get on your nerves if you are reading a long email, a web page, or even a book on your phone, and you have to keep tapping the screen periodically so it doesn’t go dark every minute or so through your lack of activity? Samsung have implemented a cool solution to this, called Smart Stay, which you can switch on via the options menu. It uses the camera on the front of the Galaxy S3 16GB White to look for your eyes, and if it sees you looking at the screen, it will keep the screen backlit for you rather than letting it sleep. This is great because you don’t have to turn the setting off to ensure it keeps going into power saving mode when you aren’t looking at it.
Get Some Peace By Using Block Mode
Some people seem to think that the fact that you own a mobile means you are obliged to speak to them or deal with their messages, tweets and Facebook updates to you no matter what time of day or night. This can be stressful, but the Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White gives you heavily customizable ways to decide who you want notifications from and when. You can whitelist the important people so they can get hold of you at any time (like being on your very own VIP list), and block other notifications at set times, for instance if you are going into a meeting or going to bed. Of course, some people, you may just want to have blocked at all times, so you don’t have to hear your Samsung chirp up every time they send you a new Farmville request…
The Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB White is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed mobile phones available, and offer a great alternative to the iPhone. Tech blogger Laura Ginn tried out this Samsung bestseller to see whether it lives up to all of the hype it has received.
