Some new features as compared to the Samsung GALAXY Note are :

  1. Different Gallery views
  2. Air View – This feature allows you to HOVER the stylus 1 cm-ish above the screen so you can see a preview of what you’re hovering it over, for example, a video would preview as you hovered your stylus over the screen.
  3. An enhanced Stylus and other related features
  4. Video “lessons” (see the video later for more information)
  5. And the feature I’m MOST looking forward to – Best Face – this awesome option clicks 5 faces of each person  in a photo, and you get to choose the best out of those! (I’m particularly non-photogenic, so really excited for this.)

There are a dozen more amazing features, have a look at this video.
I only hope they CAN get these features to the Samsung GALAXY Note once Note II releases!

Looks like there’s a hell lot of difference between S3 and Note II. Now, the only way Samsung can cash in on this is, by advertising it well, the way they did for their “Flagship” S3.

I would like to end this blog by saying one last thing : Samsung “infringed” Apple’s patents, they copied it, right? So now, you can get what Apple used to rip you off for, only for cheaper! *wears an invisibility cloak before Apple reaches this blog*

Hope you enjoyed this read!
