    Every android phone with the facebook app "Integrates". What exactly is it you want in your contacts from facebook?

    I think he means the contact photos synchronising with facebook and maybe seeing facebook updates from the contacts. I don't think you can see updates but there's an app that lets you sync the photos. I just don't tknow the name because I don't use it. Something with pix in it i think

    The photos dont update automatically. Just the original sync. My HTC Dewsire was the same. I use "sync my pix"

    Adding facebook widget to a homescreen adds status' in my contacts app.

    I also use SyncMyPix to update my contact photos with those in Facebook.

    thank you all for your feedback, and yes u guys got it right, thats exactly what i meant.

    Previously i had HTC One X, and the only good thing i liked about it was this complete facebook integration, ie. My facebook calender was synced to my calender showing everybody's birthday.

    In contact it has this option "merge" fb contact with your google contact so that u can review the latest status update, contact pictures, it is how every still possible in S3 but you have to do it manually ,to every single contact..

    Not true. If names are same, it automatically joins. Its not mind reader though. Doesn't know contact "mum" should be joined to facebook profile "Jenny Smith"

    you can add the facebook calendar as an ical calendar within gmail then you can add that calendar in android. ive done it and have all the facebook birthdays synced

    EDIT also you can sync with calendar within s3 without doing what i did above.

    if you go to settings > accounts > add account. you will see an option for "facebook (for syncing)" pick this option and after you log in it will allow you to tick sync pictures with gallery and sync calendar

    I came across this post while searching. My phone does not sync my contacts with their facebook profile picture like my Inc 2 did. Is this phone unable to do this?
