Samsung has launched three variants in its Galaxy Touchscreen Phone Series – The Galaxy S, Galaxy 3 and Galaxy 5. While Galaxy S is the leader with an amoled screen and other high end features, it looses out on the price front costing an exorbitant 28ooo/- But watch out, the much more reasonably priced variants are in fact excellent choices to go in for. We have a look at the Samsung Galaxy 3 in a series of articles that explore its winning features.
Today we look into the most prominent and THE standout feature of Samsung Galaxy 3 – its Google Integration. The back cover of the Galaxy 3 quite prominently mentions that the phone comes with Google support embedded in it. On the first look it may seem not as useful a thing and wonder why Samsung is highlighting this on its phone’s body! But as you start to use the phone, you would simply love this very aspect of the phone, especially if you are a net addict and cannot think of being away from your email or online presence for long.
To start with, the most obvious and important offspring of the Google clan is Gmail. Samsung Galaxy 3 integrates Gmail in such a seamless and smooth manner that it comes out as a part of your phone just as is SMS or any other feature. What’s more, it provides for Push Support for Gmail which works like a charm! I have used other push mail services on other phones in the past, and believe you me, the experience of Gmail on the Galaxy 3 is unmatched! The delivery of messages is instantaneous, so much so it any new mail appears instantly on both your phone and your computer with no lag whatsoever. The Gmail client is much more refined than the ones you get for Symbian – its super fast, well laid out and filled with excellent features like support for labels, etc. Not only is the new ail delivery synchronized, but whatever changes you make to your Gmail on your PC, gets shadowed on your mobile and vice versa. Thus, if you delete a message, move a message, label a message, just about anything – your mobile and PC are in complete sync.
After the mail, the next Google product is your contacts. The phone provides beautiful support for your Gmail Contacts to be synced on your mobile and can be used as your mobile contacts as well. You can even link your Gmail, phone and SIM contacts and the ones from social networking sites like Twitter or Facebook.
Google Calendar and Picasa Web Albums are the other two Google products that the Samsung Galaxy 3 provides support for. Just as in case of Gmail or contacts, these applications also work in the background to keep themselves in sync with your Web account so much so các phần mềm kế toán thông dụng that you wouldn’t even realize it.
Its quite obvious that not all of us need or use all these features and the synchronization after all consumes your battery and data charges. No issues as you can choose and decide which of these apps you want synchronized and which not. I personally love to keep my Gmail in sync at all times but not so much the others.
One important Google feature that you would find extremely useful is Google Search. This is indispensable for one and all as it is extremely useful to have the ability to search for any info that you are looking for at the click of a button. Google Search opens up the world of information to you – any help you need, Google Search is your companion at all times!
Being an Android based phone, Google support was quite expected of the Samsung Galaxy 3. What I love is the very unobtrusive integration it provides and makes it easy to use all of these features. Your mobile in fact becomes a small little computer in your hand and you can carry your internet around at all times!
