Video: Samsung Galaxy S3 TouchWiz Overview


Samsung has made some major changes to its TouchWiz UI through the Galaxy S3. In fact, they made so many, that it took a 26-minute video from us to touch on about half of them. The video is below and includes a tour of the camera, S Voice, UI customizations, and more. If you were looking for a more detailed video of this latest custom skin from Sammy, you may not find one elsewhere. This video was also posted in our full Galaxy S3 review, in case you missed it.

    Kellex hows the sound? Any improvement over the G Nex low speakers on videos?

    • michael arazan

      good question, heard a couple beeps and noises plus s voice, but how loud were the settings for audio, and music player sound?

  • I seriously can’t bring my self to watch a 26 minute video.

  • GJ with the folders, Samsung…..

    App drawer icon on the right would be the first thing I’d change. Needs to be in the middle.

    • Mack

      I actually like it on the right, put it that way on my phone even. To each his own though.

  • S Bosworth

    Seriously looks like Moto Blur Gingerbread on the old Droid 2 in the first pic…

    Kellex I think you’re too polite to your phone servant. You should say “Give me the weather or be destroyed” to see if it works faster.

    I don’t think I’ll mind the physical button coming from a Droid X, nice review.

    • smoothy

      I was thinking the same thing! I also noticed that, with the exception of the designated search button on the DX, the GS3 even has the same button layout (menu, home, back).

  • How is the screen wakeup time?

  • Andrew Wegand

    I wonder if we will get a nice port of this on the Galaxy Nexus?

    • e_droid

      Haven’t some guys over at xda port some stuff over already?

      • michael arazan

        they did try to port s voice at one point a couple months back..

        • e_droid

          I have it on my Droid X 😀

  • Jarred Sutherland

    Wow, TouchWiz doesn’t look horrible anymore. I hated it on my Fascinate, but this one looks rather nice!
