Samsung GALAXY S III Tip: Disable S Voice to Speed up the Home Button
Recently, the Samsung’s most awaited smartphone in 2012,
Samsung GALAXY S IIIhas finally arrived safely in the hands of some customers who already pre-ordered it or bought it at retailers, with the exception of US users out there that have to wait patiently for the device to launch in their land later this June. And for those who are lucky and already receive the units, can now test drive all the features and the awesomeness of this “Next Galaxy” phone.
Anyway, as many of you already know,
Samsung GALAXY S III is equipped with the feature called S-Voice, a voice-based assistant just like the Siri on Apple devices. Some say it’s a cool feature in this phone, while others don’t really like it and will unlikely use it very often.
And if you really are the owner of Samsung GALAXY S III, you will also know that the S-Voice feature in this phone can be quickly activated by double tapping the home button.
However, by using this double-tap setting, apparently when you want to go back to the home screen, it always takes a bit moment for the phone to response because the phone wants to firstly know whether you want to go back to the home screen or activate the S-Voice with 1 more tap.
Some users don’t really like it when that happens because it makes going back to the home screen a little bit slower. Therefore, if you feel the same thing just like those users and want to deactivate the double-tap feature on home button, then this is how you roll.
Firstly, go to the S-Voice settings, secondly, change the double-tap command on the “Launch S Voice” setting menu, and you’re done. Now the home button of your phone can bring you to the home page in much faster than before.
