The painful Jelly Bean update rollout for the Galaxy S III resumes

The painful Jelly Bean update rollout for the Galaxy S III resumes
Galaxy S III users did not experience the smoothest update process ever. While the manufacturer started rolling out the update last month, it had to temporarily pause the rollout and work out a few bugs first.

After the first handsets were updated in September, it was quickly discovered that the update package caused a battery drain and a few issues with the interface. It seems that these have now been fixed, as the update process has been resumed in Sweden. Let's hope that Samsung will quickly deploy the update in all other markets as well.

The Android 4.1.1 update that is being released brings a number of cool features to the GS III, including Project Butter, which should make the handset feel even faster and smoother, better notification bar with more options, Google Now and some others.
