Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 update warning as it reaches UK

The Samsung Galaxy S3 begun receiving the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update last week and has now been reaching more regions that now includes the UK, but the update does come with a warning for those that have yet to install the software.

Samsung pressed the button last week to begin the process of rolling out the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S3, but a number of users that have already downloaded the software have reported a variety of issues with the firmware.

Many have complained of the lockscreen becoming unresponsive as well as the Wi-Fi connection becoming a joke. Others have complained of really bad battery life since installing the new operating system, and it makes you wonder if the update will be pulled shortly due to the problems.

Over the weekend reports of the same software being ready to be pushed out for the Galaxy Note 2 emerged but this is surely going to be delayed because of these problems. The update has reached the UK and it seems is available via an OTA update, but we have yet to decide if we will update our unlocked version of the Galaxy S3 until the problems have been sorted.

Update: Samsung has since pulled the software.

Have you got the update and yet and had any issues?
