The phone offers a personalized call-equalization setting, which tests each of your ears with a range of tones and frequencies to see how well you hear them. It then creates a customized EQ curve for each ear, allowing you to hear calls as clearly as possible. You can access this feature via settings > call sound EQ settings > personalized EQ.

Get the Whole Picture

Don't miss out on those big, scenic shots: Capture the entire thing using the Galaxy S III's panoramic mode.

When you're in the camera, just switch your shooting mode to panorama, and you can pan across some gorgeous scenery as the Galaxy S III goes to work, snapping the photos you need and stitching them together to make a panoramic image.

Want to get this functionality on your Android phone? Try out Photaf Panorama (free) or Pano ($3.06), both available in Google Play.

Next: Video, web browsing, location, volume tips and more.

Keep That Video Playing

If you've ever tried to keep a toddler entertained by playing a video on your phone, you know how handy it can be. Until said toddler presses a few buttons, minimizing or stopping the video--then all bets are off.

If you want to keep that child's attention where it should be--on the video, of course--lock the phone's touchscreen by simply pressing the power button once when a video is playing.

Looking to add this feature to your phone? Head over to Google Play and download Screen Lock / disable touch or the $0.99 Toddler Video Player Lock.

Send Your Own Personal Video

Samsung's AllShare Play feature has gained a lot of attention, and deservedly so: It sends the content that you see on your phone over to your big-screen TV (provided that your TV is compatible with Samsung's sharing technology).

This is a great way to watch a movie or see photos on a big screen, but it also offers a unique way to send a video message. Simply record a video of yourself on your phone, and then play it back on your TV with friends and family watching.
