Default s3 features on Nexus 4?

Hey guys, I'm kind of a newb with this stuff so sorry if my questions don't make sense.

I've been looking at getting a new phone and am between the S3 and the Nexus 4.
I want to buy the new Nexus 4 phone (because of how cheap it is). But I want to have all the cool features that the S3 shows in their commercials. By this I mean features like:
Pop up play
Smart stay
Speak to turn alarm off/ snooze
Create your own vibration pattern for alerts
Turn over to turn off sound
Swipe to take a screen shot
Pick it up and it vibrates if you have any alerts
Put it to your ear and it will call whoever you are texting
Take pictures while shooting a video
Take a burst of photos
Speak to take a picture (shoot, cheese, now)
S voice

If I buy the Nexus 4 will it have any of these features? If not is there a way I can get them on the Nexus 4?

Thanks a lot- Mitch

The majority of these features are part of Samsung touchwiz so no its unlikely you will get them on the nexus 4.

No. I don't know how much you know about android? The nexus line of phones/ tablets can be made by different manufacturers but they all run "pure" android which means a version set by Google with no extras added on by manufacturers.
Touchwiz is Samsung's version of android and all the bits you want are only on Samsung phones and will not work on anything else.
Its up to you to decide what features you want though.

As an S3 owner, all of those features are really insignificant that are just gimmicks. But the S3 is a truly awesome phone, but I can't comment on the Nexus though.

Galaxy Nexus S3 TouchWiz Jelly Bean Addon [MOD] - YouTube

will doing this add those features? I know they are gimmicky. The one I really want is to be able to take pictures while shooting a video and to be able to take a burst of photos. Does anyone know if this will be available on the Nexus 4?

Thanks for all of your replies!

Doing that will not add ALL the features, and will have more bugs than the original SIII. Mainly because the Samsung method is actually editing Android at the OS level.
