Jelly Bean for Samsung Galaxy S3 officially pulled off
After Samsung released its Jelly Bean update for Samsung Galaxy S3 last week, users reported some issues with the UK GT-I9300 and the South Korean SHV-E210K models related to reducing the battery life, constant applications crash and unstable connection via Wi-Fi. In addition, the Android 4.3 update for Galaxy S3 brought also lags into the performance along with incomplete device lockups. Back then, the engineering department confirmed the issues and promised to fix all the reported problems which led to pulling the update on hold. While Samsung Galaxy Note 2 officially kicks off with the new Android 4.3 update, as it’s been reported today, the Galaxy S3 that nominally got ahead of its Note 2 colleague with the new Jelly Bean haircut will stay on hold for pushing itself too hard. Today Samsung officially pulled the Android 4.3 update for Galaxy S3 due to the following issues:
- Phone constantly restarting itself.
- When locked or asleep, home key or lock key fails to work and that causes you to remove the battery. If you’re lucky, you might only need a few minutes to wake up your device and hope for the lag to go away.
- The interface freezes randomly
- Bluetooth Audio issues during playback in car
- The Audio quality gets low with the Samsung music app and it ‘stutters’
- During some incoming calls the screen doesn’t display caller and the ringtone quality sound lowers.
- Alarm works but only if you’re lucky.
- Battery drains by almost 12% within 10-minute of call.
- Notification bar shows apps that you have downloaded, however when you clear them, they will appear again for no reason.
- Issues with the Wi-Fi connection.
Apparently, the users who got hype for the new Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for their Samsung Galaxy S3 were way too many, so the reports came from all around the world which completely disabled Samsung to pull the update quietly. So far, it will be put on hold, but how long will it take for Samsung engineers to fix the problems, it hasn’t been confirmed yet. Stay tuned.
