6. Efficient communication

Efficiency is at the heart of Samsung S Voice and another area where it can help streamline your experience is with communications.

You can view a contact by saying, for example, "Look up Jason", and S Voice will return Jason's contact details, including his phone numbers and email addresses. If you then wanted to speak to Jason you can say, "Call Jason" and S Voice will ring him.

If there are multiple contacts with the same name, you'll be given the choice of which one you want to call.

It's not just voice calls that S Voice can handle – text messaging is very much on the agenda as well. All you need to do is say something like "Text Jeff message Will you be home tonight?" and S Voice will do the rest.

This is great if you're using a computer or reading a document and your GALAXY Note 3 is sitting on your desk, as you don't need to stop what you're doing to send a message or make a call.

7. Hands-free social networking

Samsung S Voice supports integration with both Facebook and Twitter, allowing you to update the world with ease.

You'll need to enable the social networks on S Voice by heading into the settings within the app, but it's just a couple of taps and then you're ready to roll.

Simply say something along the lines of "Twitter update, I love S Voice" or "Facebook status, just won an awesome game of Monopoly", and S Voice will do the rest.

You'll be able to review your message before posting it to your account. Then just say "update" and you'll be done.
