S Voice is the new feature provided in the latest Samsung Galaxy SIII, You can say that S Voice is a clone to the Siri a feature in iPhone 4S.  S Voice works in the same way the Siri works like searching a term on internet, providing weather information, dialing a number etc. There are some additional features in S Voice which I believe Apple will counter in next generation iPhone 6 and new iOS 6.

  • Search
  • Volume Control
  • Open apps

It was rumored today that iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III (galaxy s3) will be having a feature similar to the one called Liquipel that is a waterproof coating.  Although Liquipel is the technology which is already available in the market but they may go for a new alternative technology called HzO. Although it is a rumor but its good to feel your iphone protected against the water damage which I have suffered once when I fell down in the water at beach and my iPhone was in my pocket, it was dead.

Few weeks ago I shared one video that was showing details about the Liquipel waterproof coating which you can get on your iPhone by paying $59 and you need to give the company your mobile for atleast 2 days. Below vidoes also show you how the Liquipel water proofing works.

This video shows how does waterproof coatings protects the iPhone.

Watch this video to understand more about Liquipel waterproof coating.
