Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean review: Bread and butter

Samsung Galaxy S III Jelly Bean review: Bread and butter - read the full textThe official rollout of the Galaxy S III Jelly Bean update has finally started. In the next few weeks it should land on just about every Exynos-powered S III unit out there, letting it have a taste of the latest and greatest from Android...

Those motional jerks in Galaxy S3 video takes are not caused by the image stabilizer, but by the video camera randomly skipping 1 to 3 frames in every three seconds.

This is reported by the Finnish Tekniikan Maailma (Technical World) Magazine in their recent smartphone evaluation (iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S3).

After been using Jelly bean for about 1 week, i flash my S3 back to ICS due to screen freeze ( call log, Gallery...etc.), battery drain faster. Huge disappointment and won't upgrade anymore until it is fix. Btw, new functions doesn't bring any benefit to user unless the phone is work as fluid as what it should be in ICS.

I recently update to 4.1.1 (India)on my s3 n since then faced a lot of problems. My battery takes VERY LONG to charge (almost 4 hours from 0-100) and the battery life also has seemed to reduce. Offline typing still isnt working and it says no connection to Google servers. The so-called PROJECT BUTTER works only on screen transition but time taken to open messaging, contacts is slow and for the first time i experienced a lag on a QUAD-CORE phone!

its been 3-4 daya since i updated my samsung galaxy S3 to jellybean and i am really disappointed with the performance.
The latest update has slowed down the phn and the screen freezes very frequently. there is a huge delay in even opening the call logs,contacts or making calls.
i noticed while making/recieving calls the screen shows the pic and number of the previous call that was made/recieved from the phone...

a really huge degradation in performance

I m using Samsung S3 n recently got updated to AndroidJB
JB is better in some
1-blocking mode
2-re-sizing of popup video
3-extended web browsing time
but we aspects more from android n Samsung team, need to fix the delay while i opened my contacts or call log menu or even switch between them.
Otherwise its a superb phone n nice update i love both of them

I just got the jb update.. the ui seems too be faster but it takes more processing power... games don't feel fluid as in ics... the phone tends too freeze Some times.. nvr had this problem with ics... web browsing seems to have taken a step back.. over all project butter indeed made the ui better but it's taking to much processing power.. even with a 1.4 ghz quad qore the phone freezes... for me the jb update is a disappointment...

Battery after JB runs out much faster and phone sometimes freezes for 0,5 of second. I'm really disappointed with this update. I regret that I updated to JB. With ICS I had no problems
