Yes pretty simple too.
No buttons to press . Just put the side of your hand (like a karate chop...lol) on the left side of the screen and swipe across to the right side of screen. The pic will be copied to your clipboard and gallery.

I love my s3, but I've never had an iphone so I can't tell you whether or not I like it lol. Nevertheless, I love my phone. :-)

 From a user point of view, the S3 wins hands down. It has a faster processor so it is faster than an IPhone. There is also the S Voice which is comparable to Siri on an IPhone. although I will admit, S Voice isn't as fun to play with as Siri is because it doesn't have some of the funny answers to silly questions. With the S3, the touch functions are more versatile. Unlike the IPhone, if you are reading an article online you can instantly scroll to the top of the page by double tapping the top of the phone.

 

Also, one thing that I like about the S3 over the IPhone is how easy it is to transfer files from one phone to another. My husband has the Note, (which I like even more than the S3) If I want to share a picture or video with him, all I have to do is tap the back of my phone to the back of his and voila - picture transferred.

 

Now from a technician point of view, the IPhone is the winner. To replace a screen in an IPhone, it is a lot easier and cheaper than to repair an S3. The IPhone is cheaper to repair if needed than an S3. If you crack the screen on your S3, you might as well replace the entire phone because the screen is difficult to remove and it is not a separate piece from the digitizer so the part is a lot more expensive. The Iphone (depending on which one you get) the screen is an extremely easy replacement and very inexpensive. (IPhone 5 excluded.)

 

So, if you want to consider how much it will cost should you break your phone, then go with an IPhone. But if you don't care or have the ability to replace it should it break, definitely get the S3 - Actually I'd go with the Note over the S3 though.

You can do that on the S3 very easily.
Just swipe the side of your hand from left to right across the screen. The pic will be on your clipboard and in your gallery.
