One of the other big-hitting features Samsung is talking about is the ability to Track your Eyeballs to make sure the Display Stays Lit when you're looking at it. In theory this should mean that you can keep the Screen Timeout to a minimum of Fifteen Seconds and then Never have to Worry about it Turning Off. A little Eye Icon ( Eyecon ) Appears in the Notification Bar when it's Tracking your Peepers. It waits till you're Asleep, the Screen maintains a bright Display as long as you're looking at it.
In practice it works around 75% of the Time, even in Bright Light it can sometimes still Turn Off the Display, despite the icon Showing up. In fact, the Icon can Pop Up even when you're Wearing Sunglasses - so it's hard to trust it.
Smart alert takes the Motion Sensor in the Phone and Sends you a Vibration Notification if you have any Notifications that you haven’t Cleared yet. What is most likely happening here, if the phone picks and chooses what notifications to tell you about via Smart Alert, there is likely a White-List of sorts that allows you to set notification type for Smart Alert.It knows when you've been away from your phone: a vibrating nudge lets you know that you have missed calls or messages.

Direct Call allows you to make a Call simply by Lifting the Phone to your Ear while writing a Message to Someone, or while Specific Contact Details are brought up to the Display. Just lift, and Speak. It's a nice Feature to have but we can think of many Scenarios where this could Go Wrong. It knows when you want to talk.
Sharing your Content with Friends nearby should be Easy, Quick, and even Fun. S Beam lets you Bond Instantly so you can Transfer Documents, Contacts, Pictures, Music, Videos, you Name it. Just put the Backs of your Phones Together, Connect, Share and Enjoy.
The biggest issue that S Beam will face initially would be with the compatibility. As Samsung rolls out more devices that are S Beam compliant, the service will become useful to anyone with multiple Samsung Devices. The Features being Implemented here will be unique to Samsung, and will further encourage users to stick with Samsung with all Devices moving forward.
There’s another way to Share content on various Devices. It’s called AllShare Play, and it lets you share with everyone, Access Documents and Multimedia even when you're away from your Computer.

Buddy Photo Share

You might find Facial Slideshow Entertaining, especially when it comes to making out Individuals in a Huge Group Shot. The Feature essentially creates a Slideshow from One Image, Cycling through Portraits of each Person in the Frame.
