To ensure that the Samsung Galaxy S III, "the next big thing is here," Samsung is posting videos to a giant screen in New York City's Time Square. Along with that big shot celebrities are sharing their Samsung Galaxy S III big shots (photo). The big wait is finally over for those who want to buy some models in store.
Time Square is aglow with Samsung Galaxy S III videos. There are videos of moon walks, weddings, slow mo mob scenes and model poses. To make a big phone look big, have a big guy endorse it.
A really big guy, former basketball star Walt "Clyde" Frazier has been signed to endorse the Samsung Galaxy S III especially the ShareShot feature (get it basket shots/camera shots.)
He previously had a flip phone here are some of the Frazier's favorite features of his Samsung Galaxy S III:
- It's easy, a lot simpler than I thought it would be.
- It's stylistic, it looks like Clyde. It's got a nice screen it's very simplistic, just touch what you want.
- The camera has really impressed me. You can take pictures and you don't have to worry about if it's right or not, cause in 1 second it takes 8 different pictures and the camera selects the best one for you.
- Yeah because you can share pictures with people. Like if you had one of these, we could kind of like touch them together and share the pictures and information. It's invaluable man.
- I Googled myself.
Demos of Clyde's favorite features appear in videos below such as Share Shot, S Beam, S Voice personal assistant and an over demonstration from Sprint.
