2. Video multi-tasking

5. Direct Call
The Direct Call feature will automatically call a contact if their log, contact, or message details are on the screen and you move the handset to your ear. Direct Call can be switched on and off in the Motion section of the settings menu.
6. Smart stay
Personally, this is my favorite special feature. Smart stay uses its front-facing camera to see if your eyes are still looking at the screen. If it finds them, it�ll keep the screen t active, rather than let it sleep. You can activate the feature from within the Display submenu of the full Settings menu.
7. S Pen (stylus)
Once mentioned about Galaxy Note 2, we could think of the S Pen. With the Special S Pen, drawing and writing become easier, and that is why many people fall in love with it. Also, with the S Pen, you don�t even need to touch the screen for it to show off, called Air View. Excellent. The S Pen makes it simple to take a screenshot of your smartphone’s full screen by holding the side button in and holding the pen to the screen until the edge of the screen flashes white, signaling a screenshot has been taken.
