Dear manufacture I am a user of Samsung galaxy s advance and we are stucked at Android 2.3.6 and it looks outdated for us when our friends smartphones runs on jellybean therefore we require jellybean as early as possible. And on this handset most of the games hangs and our fellow Indian users are facing network problems and there is no camera zoom available. ******so if the update doesn''t arrive shortly

samsung is such a tease, why dont they just launch JB for this model already, all we kept getting is unofficial teasers, I bought this phone relying on the promise of a JB update,
hi i have been upgrade my galaxy s advance to android jelly bean... huhu this phone is perfect but after i upgrade it just slow a bit maybe it still new.. huhu...
Lost hope of getting JB in India. Unfortunately will have to throw this phone. Samsung is a cheater. It is just intrested in selling out new phones but not able to satisfy old customers. So i wl never buy an samsung product in my life again. Definately we should go in consumer forum for this thing.
I dont know, Why samsung made Galaxy S Advance with Gingerbread in 2012. When Jelly Bean in India? Shame Samsung.
definitely go for it, if ICS is not your priority coz no other phone in market in its price bracket can defeat it in terms of goodies it offers you (4" Super Amoled screen, 768 RAM, Cortex A9 processor, 1.3MP Front cam.. Amazing phone and if it got JellyBean update then it will become the toppper in mid budget..
Handset is all good with the GB. I guess it's just the additional looks and experience that will be added to the JB. Anyways, I'll just wait for it. -jas

Guys, would you recommend buying this phone in India, the chances for an official JB update is low? If so would it be worth it paying this money for a 2.3 device?? Please tell me fast as Im in urgent need of a new phone
I dont think samsung is updating it any soon,talking about it here is waste, we must ask at their FB page, or report it to consumer court
AnonD-82836, 19 Mar 2013Hello Harry;....Tried playing 720p@48, 60fps, 1080p@30,48,60fps..BS Player is just a piece of ... moreI tried the same HFR videos. I mentioned HFR mp4 format like action shot 1,2 in my previous post. I also got a fragmented video while playing HFR avi video like Brit.avi... Anyways bro download BS player free from play store (it is optimized for Armv7).if the BS player u tried is from play store, then go to preferences>playback preferences> decoding mode>HW decoding mode(BS player engine). Then u can play 1080p with HW acceleration. And mine's working perfect.
if samsung is not interested in launching JB in india then we must complain to consumer forum....
I don't think that we in India are going
to taste Jelly Bean in near future on
our S Advance, as I wrote to the
Samsung Coustomer support and they
replied me in this way "We thank you for taking time for
sending this email . We are sorry for the
inconvenience caused to you. As per
the mentioned query of
Samsung mobile model Galaxy S
Advance, we would like to inform you
that Samsung don’t have any official information of launch of Jelly Bean for
the same in INDIA so kindly bear with
us till then. Regards, Technical Support
