Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.1.2 Update at Verizon – Officially A Failure
Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3 seems to have hit a few bumps as far as the Android 4.1.2 update is concerned. By the looks of it, the update for the device is causing more issues than it’s solving and for the time being Verizon stopped the update’s distribution. With the update being rolled out successfully at other carriers such as Sprint and T-Mobile, one has to wonder if this wasn’t something that Verizon messed up.
The update was supposed to bring a number of improvements, however, it seems that users have been complaining about connectivity as well as battery life issues. The update, VRBMD3, considered an important one for the device, generated quite a lot of angry and upset responses from customers. With improved functionality coming to the Galaxy S4, such as multi-window support, the Galaxy S3 on Verizon would have been as up-to-date as it can get (sorry, no Samsung Galaxy S4 Android 4.2 update yet).
Verizon recently announced that most users went through the update without any issues. However, a small number of customer were negatively affected.
Verizon stopped pushing the update and it’s now busy trying to fix the issue. The official word is that the update will be postponed until they are certain the issues have been taken care off. If you were hoping to get the Android 4.1.2 update for your Galaxy S3 with Verizon, it seems that you will have to wait a bit longer.
