Emojis are pretty popular among all the mobile operating systems and the internet in general. For those that don’t know, Emojis are picture words that are used across the internet. Examples include smiley faces that show up in place of the classic “:)” in most chat interfaces, various animals, hand signals, and pretty much anything you can think of. Emojis have grown in popularity on mobile operating systems thanks to applications that allow for them on both Android and iOS devices, but they are usually restricted to things like chat apps and text messages.
For the Samsung Galaxy S III, users can modify their devices to get Emojis system wide. This means they’ll show up in web pages, settings menus, and other applications that don’t typically support them. While this won’t boost performance or improve battery, it does add a nice bit of flair to the device and makes things more animated and fun to use. Of course, you’ll need root access in order to make the mod work. If you don’t have root access and you’re looking for a good root method, you can find one here.
