This Google now thing... it exists, right? Why am I not seeing it and why is Swype not inserting spaces?
Just found the Google Now. It is the search bar, click on that, should be a widget and it will start it.
Swype is working fine for me, not sure about the spacing.
Hold the left capacitive key down and Google Now will come up
I've been on jelly bean for the past 2 months on my Sprint galaxy s3. I'm not able to get the spaces to work on websites either. It does work in email and texts though.

This is just a test. Spacing is working fine.
I've had this phone for Since August and it is pretty good. My only complaint is the blue tooth sucks.
The truth is if you are buying the latest version of Google's Android you can't go wrong. My son has the latest Motorola Android and it is sweet as well. I still hate all the crap Samsung and Att loaded on this phone. I would prefer pure un-bloated Android Nexus.
Now that Google has bought out Motorola, I'm hoping they put out a killer Android Nexus within the next six months. That will be the phone.
Mine works in texts but not here. I even got the "no need to hit the space bar" message.
Ever since the update I've been getting call back numbers displayed in incoming texts, but it's not everyone.
Any way to disable that? Not seeing anything in message settings.
I have a toggle widget on my desktop that works fine, but yeah, weird that it isn't included there since seemingly everything else is.
Is there a way so that all images others send me are not just multimedia? Sometimes images are fine, I can open them and zoom in by pinching the screen and all that. Other times it's a multimedia message that "plays" for like eight seconds and I can't zoom in.
Are there settings for this?
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Tell whoever to send pics without any text. And one pic at a time.
Hey guys..I've got some questions. I think my phone is starting to die, so I'm considering picking up the S3. Questions are:
1) I saw it on wirefly for $100, which was the cheapest I saw for verizon. Anyone else seen better deals?
2) Is there anything on the horizon that may solve the battery issue better than the current crop of phones? If so, I may try to hold out.
3) Is this still the best android phone out there in this price range?
Hey a-holes. I had some questions!
1. no idea
2. battery isnt that bad
Also is Sprint ever going to roll out the updated android software?
I'm at 4.1.1 which is not the new version I think
No, it is not currently the best Android phone.
He asked for the best phone in the $100 price range, which the S3 is, far and away. The Note 2 is arguably better, but it only just dropped to $200.
@Chitown: what battery problem?
@Beal99: 4.2 is the latest version that none of the S3s have-- you'll have to flash a ROM to get it.
The note 2 is better? I have no problem paying $200, but the size of that sucker is getting a little big (that's what she said).
Regarding the battery thing, it's just always been a big issue with smartphones, and I was wondering if there were any breakthroughs in that area worth holding out for. But it sounds like that's not the case.
I've had a Note 2 for a month or so now & absolutely love it. Other phones now look comically small to me. Plus, quad-core processor (S3 has only dual core) & jelly bean out of the box.
Guinness makes you drop mud.
"Better" is relative. I think the Note 2 has a faster processor. It is large though, you should check one out in person before buying.
I've not had any battery issues with my Samsung Galaxy SIII. It easily makes it through a day on a single charge, even if I'm using it a ton. If I'm not using it much it'll go two days. The battery got a little worse after the Jelly Bean update.
I say "arguably better" purely subjectively because that giant screen is awesome...to me.
As for battery, mine also easily lasts the whole day with heavy usage. The only real jump to be made in battery life is for incremental drops in power usage from smaller components and larger batteries, barring some new leap forward in battery technology.
s4 coming out April 16.
2600 mah battery
8 core processor
13 mp camera
for the SIII it looks like I could jump back to sprint from verizon and get it free.
Samsung Galaxy S III 4G Android Phone, Blue 16GB (Sprint) -
Any chicago people have sprint? It seems like they were doing a major network upgrade last year, so I'm curious how the service is. I was with them for about 6 years prior to switching to verizon and it was fine, but a lot has changed since then, and I didn't have a smartphone back then.
I do, works great most days, 4G most of the time
