Samsung Galaxy S3 has earned many positive reviews and praise from all around the globe and to some extent it can be credited to the S-beam feature in the Galaxy S3 which is Samsung’s data transferring tool which connects via NFC and transfers a file using WiFi.
Samsung Galaxy S3′s S-Beam is a direct answer to the WiFi direct. The S-Beam technology allows you to bypass the arduous pairing procedure for a simple tap, thanks to the NFC chip.
As soon as two phones equipped with S-Beam( like Samsung Galaxy S3) are tapped with each other, they make a connection and transfer the file on your home screen to the other phone via the built-in WiFi.
A common question asked by the potential customers of Samsung Galaxy S3 is, what is the main difference between Bluetooth and S-Beam technology which the Samsung Galaxy S3 features? Well, if told in a non-geeky and easy to understand way, S-Beam is approximately 12.5 times faster than the traditional Bluetooth technology. Need I to say more?
Samsung Galaxy S3 features Android v4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box. Samsung Galaxy S3 gets its super fast speed for which it is famous for from the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. Features like 4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display, 16/32/64 GB of internal storage and 4G LTE connectivity makes Samsung Galaxy S3 currently the best Android smartphone available in the market.
Samsung Galaxy S3′s S-Beam isn’t just limited to pictures, it can also be used with video and music content. When two S3′s are held back to back, the phone which wants to send the file concerned suggests you to tap it to confirm sending the file. However, S-Beam is only available in the Samsung’s multimedia apps, so it won’t work in case of file explorer or any other similar app.
Here is the video of two Samsung Galaxy S3s using S-Beam to transfer a photo and then a video.
