Over the past month few weeks we have heard reports of European users of the Samsung Galaxy S3 beginning to download the impressive new Android Jelly Bean software for their devices. It was announced that UK would soon be in line for the Jelly Bean treatment and as expected the software has now hit these shores.
European users have had access to Jelly Bean for a little while now but this is the first opportunity for UK users to see what the software has to offer. The first UK network provider to begin rolling out this software was Three and other network providers followed close behind. Android users everywhere will be delighted at this news as Jelly Bean offers a number of improvements over other versions of the platform. One of the key changes is the new expandable notifications which will allow users to act directly on a notification. The much publicised Google Now software is also included as is the Project Butter user interface. The Galaxy S3 can now join the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as another handset in the range that boasts this excellent software.
Installing the new Jelly Bean update on the Samsung Galaxy S3 is a very simple affair. Users who have already installed the software have reported that the update file measures between 280MB and 290MB. If you are not familiar with the download procedure it is really straight forward. You can simply access the Setting menu where you will be told if an update if available. Once you select this option you have the opportunity to download it via OTA or Kies. It is worth remebering that your phone should have at least fifty per cent battery capacity before attempting to perform a software update.
