I want a Galaxy S3, but my finance doesn't allow, so I want to at least have some functions of the Galaxy S3. I started sourcing for apps and tutorials, and yes I found them, but they are distributed everywhere on XDA forums, so I decide to compile them and write a tutorial.
This is a quick tutorial to help S2 users to achieve a level of functionality close to that of GIIIS3, including TouchWiz, Smart Stay, Popup Play, Burst Shots, S Voice, Direct Call, and hopefully more to update in the future. Credits go to all the developers mentioned.
Ripple Live Wallpaper
Still waiting for the S3 lockscreen to be ported onto S2, but we can still get a little fun out of the live wallpaper. There are so many versions out there, but I am so far most impressed with this Galaxy S3 Water Dandelion LWP.
APK is one provided by XDA member pratikverma28 and it comes with editable waves.
I don't like the quality of the stock wallpaper, so I advise you use your own ones.
By far the best setting I have is as follow:
Refraction quality: Middle
Wave weight: 400
Spreading speed: Medium
Fade range: 100
Random creation: None
Ripples from CUSTOM ROM:
For i9100 SGS2, AllianceROM by XDA Senior Member Goldieking comes with a S3 Ripple lockscreen. You may want to give it a go.
Thanks to XDA Senior Member Smando who keeps working on better versions. The latest beta version provide landscape view.
Beta 3 version is out (Thanks to Xavaris)

(Interestingly, I just realised that the phone on the right is not S3!!!)
Simply download Super Video, Floating & Popup from Google Play

UNSTABLE (NOT RECOMMENDING)
The following functions require Tasker to imitate.
You can download the beta version of Tasker here:
Choose the type of alerts that fits your needs from the link below:
If you want to implement Direct Call on SMS, Naver LINE and Whatsapp, you'll need Tasker.
For my Tasker Profiles, please download from below:
Call-LINE (Shake Phone Left-Right Gesture)
Call-Whatsapp (Pick Up Phone Gesture)
For the tutorial to set up Direct Call with Whatsapp, please see Chef_Tony's:
For Task Edit for Whatsapp, use this,
For Task Edit for Naver LINE, use this I have created,
(Points to note is that your gesture has to be performed slowly during actual use, and the speed of automation is really slow. If you are tired of the slow reaction and the retrying, I highly recommend you not set the Sensor as Gesture, choose Shake instead.)
I have prepared a RAR file of the S3 Ringtones, you can download it here.
More updates on this thread if the development continues.
Thank you for reading!
