6 more Samsung Galaxy S3 features you may not know about

If you want to access to S Voice all you have to do it tap the home button twice and it will appear.

If you need to take a screen shot of your display you can tap the home and power buttons and hold them down for around 2 seconds. You can then find a photo of your display in your gallery. Another option is to simply swipe your palm over the display for the same result.

For those with limited data plans you can find out how much data you have used by setting up data notifications in your Settings. Choose data usage and check the box in the set mobile data limit. You can then alter the graph by moving the bar to see your usage pattern in detail.

Switching between apps is very easy if you hold down your home button for about 3 or 4 seconds. Apps that are running will then show up and you are able to choose which one to switch too and also close apps simply by swiping them right or left.

If you want to keep a check on how much battery you have remaining then go into settings and display and then check the box where it says display battery percentage. This beats the icon that is not as accurate to read.

Accessing Google search is easy if you press and hold the menu button down for roughly 2 seconds. You can then type your query into the Google search bar that shows up. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Nexus which has limited unified search, the Samsung Galaxy S3 wasn’t affected by the Apple lawsuit and wasn’t forced to limit the depth of the search results.

Check back next week as we bring another 6 Samsung Galaxy S3 features you may not know about.
