While Google has just released Android 4.4.1 for the Newest Nexus device the Nexus 5 Samsung is playing catch up with its 2012 devices. The Galaxy S3 & Galaxy Note 2 here in Canada are presently receiving their 4.3 updates which bring along a list of new features, UI enhancements, Notification improvements, performance improvements & more including a very important improvement which is battery life.
The update is hitting both of these devices on all carriers across Canada right now so if you haven’t received notice on your device head to the Settings – About Phone & hit that Software update icon to take advantage ASAP.
Improvements to the Galaxy S3 seem to be all good right now from our test device & the best Improvement so far seems to be battery life as our test device has made it through a full day of use which it couldn’t come close prior to this 4.3 update.
Will bring you more on this update as we have a little more time with the S3. Let us know anything good or bad you’ve noticed on either the S3 or Note 2 after receiving this 4.3 update we’d love to hear from you.
The Galaxy S3 has received an update to its OS through OTA and Kies methods. It’s available ON Telus, Koodo, Virgin, Rogers, Bell, Fido & MTS users. The OS remains at Android version 4.1.2 but is build MVLDMF1. Included is improvements to the gallery,
Improved download speeds when HSPA+ network coverage, Multi Window Feature, as well as addressing instances where third party VoIP apps could interfere when dialing E911.
So if you haven’t received a notification of the update yet hit the settings – about phone – and check for update, or fire up KIES on your PC & connect your S3 to grab the update now.
I haven’t had much time to check out the update myself & will be doing so later today, but until then if you’ve noticed any more changes feel free to let us know & we will add it to the list of improvements. As well let us know if battery or performance seem to be improved after updating. Just hit us up in the comments below.
The Galaxy S3 has been out in Canada for quite a while in its primary launch colors of Blue & white. Then it got covered in a odd yet stylish Garnet Red coloring.
Now it seems it’s time for a more well known color in the mobile device market, well with yet another stylish twist.
The Galaxy S3 is said to be being released in Sapphire Black real soon. Well it seems to be sooner than later as reports have come that it has indeed already been seen at some retailers carrying Telus phones.
Well what do you guys think of this phone coming in a new color after being on the market long enough to be mixed into the rumour mill of the Next phone in the Galaxy S series?
Do you think they waited too long, are ppl looking ahead of the Galaxy S3 already?
ANDROID IS THE FUTURE
