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 process and work out a few bugs...

Updating Android is a pain in the a.. by default and this is not an exception. As a former Android user I know it personally.

Experiencing touchwiz crashing weekly. Come on Samsung. For a phone that is one of the top tier android phones, it hiccups a few times when scrolling, and widgets load slow when I press the home button. I'm really hoping that jellybean fixes these issues. But since this is my first Android phone, I think I'm being too optimistic on when the update is rolling out to me.Lol

I'm running a custom ROM based on the Sprint Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.1) leak on my Samsung Galaxy S III, and I am very impressed with the way Samsung went about it. They've added very cool features and the phone is quick. Made the device even more enjoyable with a bunch of nice features. I think they're doing a great job with the update, even though we haven't received an official one.

Well I got a Treat last night, as I got my JB update on my International SIII! I think the update was available for me on 10/29, but with the Hurricane on the East Coast where i live; I did not try an update until yesterday. This update is great! My phone seems smoother & more responsive!
