After I updated my sgs3 to jellybean, battery life now sucks! I don't know why. The reviews said that battery life will be improved. But in my case, it's didn't. When it was still in ICS, even if it was idle for 8-9hrs. Only 2% is consumed. Now in JB, 9% is consumed??? Is this a bug or what? >_

Got the update around 12 this afternoon through kies on my unlocked int s3

They took away the vibrate to mute option on the volume botton. Now its only down to vibrate only. Im wondering why they'd do that. Other than that they've added a few good features. Something i noticed but had never read anywhere beforehand was the ability to go straight to the options menu of any of the notification shortcut switches. Was this always there or did i find this by luck.

Just received JB update on my unlocked GS3 in Romania.
Strangley it is one week later than the update of the GS3 locked on Vodafone Romania.
What a mess Samnsung!With my previous phone GS2 which was locked on Orange Romania, I received the ICS update 2 moths later than the unlocked S2

guess its just tough that i bought an unlocked s3, because i didn't want the stupid network branding software now means i drop right to the bottom of the list for updates, thanks samsung really think about your direct customers who like your phone not the networks version.... oh thats right the money from the networks means so much more!!!!
