I updated a friends Galaxy Beam to Jelly Bean. I kept .y one running on Gingerbread. I am not sure about Youtube but the instructions for updatin on the ibtimes website are incorrect. I got the instructions from a different website and even those were not right. However, I figured it out and the update was done. I used the phone for several days while it ran on Jelly Bean and I am afraid it is not worth updating to the leaked version. It makes the phone terribly laggy. It regilarly freezes and the projector videos often slowdown and become jerky. To make matters worse you cannot exit thw apps if the start freezing. For instance, I was listening to music and hen I got a phone call. The phone froze for ages. Once it started up again, it froze again. I removed most of the apps that would take up a lot of ram but to be honest that does not realy solve the problem. The reason Samsung have not rolled out this version of Jelly Bean officially is obvious. It slows the phone down and makes it less usable. It is a pretty snappy performer on Gingerbread and I personally think the upgrade just makes this phone less usable. Of course, it is cool to be able to run Google Chrome or any other apps made for Jelly bean but to be honest there are not that many JB exclusive apps I want to run anyway. The people who own this device probably bought it for the projector and that feature works fine on Gingerbread. Updating the phone to a less usable OS is quite pointless and rather senseless so my recommendation would be to stick to GB unless Samsung make an improved version of JB for the Beam. This laggy version has some cool features. I like the new music player and some of the sound effects you can play with. I don't know about anyone else bt the battery life improves dramatically when the JB update is performed. The battery life was good enough to begin with but I never seem to run out of juice on JB. I wish the whole hing didn't freeze and lag as much as it does. Sometimes you cannot afford to have the slowdown. Urgent calls can become a problem. Sometimes when an app opens in the background (for example Facebook Messenger) the phone just staggers. If you are listening to music and you get an sms or email the soind breaks up. Games freeze and lag. It is a shame because if it ran well I would prefer this but at present it offers no practical advantages. I also doubt that, at the time of writing, there are that many useful JB exclusive apps, so unt Samsung make a better version (I doubt that will happen now to be honest), stick to GB which is a very capable OS and works well with this device. My friend intends to downgrade to GB and I do not blame him.
Where is the promised official update by Kies jelly bean. Do not want to upgrade buggy and risky by odin. How long will we have to wait samsung?? Already spent the time to fulfill the promise!!
Use Tubemate. It' an app which has been banned for Google Play, because you can download or watch videos. It's flawless. Try it

Anonymous, 19 Sep 2013Sir plz help i m not able to upgrade my phone.if you want to upgrade to JB (offical leaked), downgrade to GB, OR just want to know more about the Beam, go to youtube.com/allabouthegalaxybeam
hey samsung when was the official jellybean coming out we are waiting for too long now we getting bored with gingerbread we need new os please post some news please.
One more question. What about the screen ?
I understand, it's not a gorilla glass..
Anyway, do you find it sensitive for scratches ?
Do you use any screen protection ? If not, did your screen got scratched just from using it with fingers ?
I have the beam for a month now and I have no regrets buying this phone, it's pretty awesome. Still waiting for the official JB update.
Excellent phone, enough memory and high speed processor. I have not complain about this smartphone. Very useful the projector.
i have used the samsung galaxy beam and it's good the sound output is excellent, the video recording is good, battery life is over n above normal, the projector is a feature to brag abt it's excellent at night, the internet speeds r great n downloads do end quickly, but they shld have given it a better camera and zooming ability.
Hi dear colleagues,
So is anywhere released official OTA Jelly bean version for Beam ? Or Samsung thinks, that it's enough some leaked beta version on the internet?
Maybe I would risk to flash it , but I'm not sure about mine Beam warranty after that, plus I heard
not one opinion, that after this leaked JB update , phone becomes laggy ..
If you have JB update , please share your experience !
