Samsung starts the Premium Suite rollout for the S III in the UK - read the full textThe Premium suite update for the Galaxy S III has started rolling out in the UK. Most of the new features come from the Note II phablet, including MultiView, which lets two apps share the big screen for better multitasking. There are improvements to the camera (easier sharing, low-light mode,...

Low-light mode seems to be nothing more then the scene-mode 'night'. It's removed under scenes and added to shooting-mode as low-light.

received mine today.

Initial thoughts, UI on the gallery is good but laggy. I can take pictures while watching video. big whoop but you never know when you might need it. better to have it than not. The multiview function is quite good and fluid. I can customise my notification bar icons.

It is quite minor I guess but I am used to having the media toolbar on the notification bar where I can access different apps when my headphones are plugged in. This has been removed and cannot be put back on and my headphone icon does not appear...WHY???

need to explore more before I can make in depth comments

(pertaining to UK stock)

Although the update is available for GSM devices, any handsets provided through a network always take longer. It will be down to the respective network to process the update.

Example being O2 sourced HTC One X, the JB update has been available for ages, but O2 only released it this week.

Guys, any initial review on this update? Does it have any lags or any delays while using multi view? Any lags using the dialer (phone) app? How is the RAM management?

No one noticed that or mentioned it, but previous JB update for SIII removed the taking pictures while recording feature.

To anyone who has been able to test 4.1.2, is that feature back please? I find that kinda annoying, i wanted to brag about it a few weeks ago then... well nothing. but it was really handy.

people moan about late updates in Samsung!
Just download any back-up apps and back-up your files and run Odin* with the latest stock Samsung ROM "image" for 4.1.2.

*First read about it very well because it may damage your phone if you don't know what you are doing, you also can check for tutorials on Youtube with full details.
