Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 update is full of bugs

Samsung has recently pushed the Android 4.3 JellyBean update to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and users were feeling very happy to get this update but now the many peoples reported the problems that are found in the latest Android 4.3 update. The latest Android 4.3 JellyBean update is full of bugs and we have tested it in our lab and found many problems in this new update, also many people send us an email regarding the problems of the Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 JellyBean update.


Samsung Galaxy S3 Android 4.3 update is full of bugs


The major problem we have found in the new update is the Battery performance, the device consumes a lot of time to get fully charged and when it is fully charged, the battery drains so quickly, it's not matters whether Wi-Fi, GPS and other services is turned off or turned on, the battery performance becomes very bad after this new update. Another problem is about the phone wake-up, when you press the unlock/power button, the device wakes up in 3 to 4 seconds, many peoples also reported the problems about the Gallery (hangs and force close) which is bad, it is not over yet, the device also hangs sometimes when listening to the music or during the online video streaming.

People are not expecting such type of problems in the new Android 4.3 JellyBean update and Samsung should take serious action against these problems and a good news is that as our sources say that the Samsung has noticed these issues and will release the FIX update soon globally.

If you are experiencing some other problems too with your Galaxy S3, kindly let us know via commenting below.

  6. There were a ton of changes to my phone after this update and I hate them all. The camera flash goes off in the morning with the alarm and there is no way to turn it off. That's just stupid. Who wants ultra-bright flashing in their face first thing? My alert bar is overloaded with icons for the same downloads over and over again and I can't go back to the original version of navigation. Also, the new keyboard is idiotic with swipe typing and the keys all look like they're in the font from "Law and Order." I hate it!

  7. GPS not working after update to 4.3 so can't use any GPS navigation software. Never buy Samsung again.

  8. We noticed a major problem with streaming video after 4.3 upgrade using VLC player.
    We could pick up stream using Android 4.2 OS but now that we've upgraded, phones can't pick up video stream from Aruba access points....

  11. I hate the update too. Battery already took a long time to charge and now I have to charge it more oftn. The lock keypad doesn't work well. It takes several tried to enter the pin now. The phone actually gets very warm when on the net for awile. Again battery drain. Everytime I use my phone now I say "I hate this update". Also don't like my text messages showing up on the locked screen. They aren't private now.

  12. Commented earlier and forgot to mention the goofy face now showing for contacts and in text messages-which detracts screen space for the messages

  13. I'll never understand why people, companies, fix what ain't broke. I -loved- my phone until this updating, and now I hate it and can't wait to get out of it. In 15 months of owning it, I've never had to charge it mid-day. Now I have to charge it two times during the day, and over night. This is a tragic failure...

  14. Had this phone less than 2 weeks and was happy but now wish I hadn't got it, cant get the 3x4 keyboard anymore, phone vibrate on text alerts although vibrate and haptic feedback are off. Emoticons have disappeared and I only found this out after it did the update which I knew nothing about. Stuck with this for 2 more years now, really not happy.

  15. Used to sing my S3's praises... now I am starting to hate it. Aggressive autocorrect, Swype is much dumber, blinding light with calls/alarms, even the sensitivity of the screens (you didn't want to unlock your phone, you wanted to move around 5 mystery boxes on this lock screen instead, didn't you?) have all gone downhill.

  20. The lock screen has less options before i could remove everything from it to just have a nice wall paper now the carrier is there permanent. The alarm notification its on the lock screen and on the notification at top why the f@#k do i need it on there twice.
    i hate the stupid update.!

  21. Every last one of my downloads reappear as a new download. I had to turn off autocorrect. I switched from the iPhone for a lot of these reasons, and it seems like they sold out to try and mimic the iPhone. I DIDN'T WANT APPLE'S PRODUCT. THAT'S WHY I BOUGHT A GALAXY. STICK WITH WHAT WORKS AND WHAT SELLS. NOT A HALF ASSED STEVE JOBS WET DREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Battery that wasnt great to begin with became worse, music stops and starts randomly, phone screen flickering randomly. Overall it becane worse.If I want to stuck with android in the future I'll definitely pickanother brand.

  23. WTF! I was late to work b/c alarm stopped working after update. Also my extended battery drains in a couple of hours now. Nothing but problems from Google. Android may be extensible and dev friendly but the basic features are clumsy and sometimes don't work at all. I'm switching back to iPhone.

  24. I HATE 4.3 ! I can no longer get wifi, i have hangs and force closes, my battery life is terrible and worst of all, my email not only doesn't work, but I keep getting that annoying msg telling me it's not working. If I disable the email, it comes back, complete with error msgs that i have to okay every 5 or so seconds.. i can't do anything with it! I used to love my S3 but now it's virtually useless.

  25. I wish I could go back to the old software. I updated to 4.3 on my Galaxy S3 and wish I hadn't. So many problems... I hate the date stamp in the gallery that you can't switch off. I hate the censored keyboard. I can't use swear words in swipe. Who do Samsung think they are censoring my language in private texts? I downloaded a third party keyboard. The worst problem is BATTERY DRAIN. I've turned off sync in the email app but it doesn't help much. I have to constantly change my phone now. I used to love my phone, now I hate it. I will never buy a Samsung smart phone again.

  33. This update sucks....No emojis for the 4.3 and when I take a picture, the picture focus clear then immediately switches to blurry....I use to brag about how the camera on this S3 was awesome, but now....I'm silent...

  34. I Just found the GPS fix. Dont worryI read it and laughed too, but in a fit of frustrated desperation i did it and OMFG my GPS came back with a vengeance.
    1. remove the back cover and tighten all the little screws nice and tight, i actually went back a second time and really tightened them and got even faster GPS within 5 foot accuracy.

    Im not sure what is going on here or even if its good or bad for the phone , but i know this much .. it works and now i feel like all my problems are over and i can now move on to the next misery samsung will put me thru. Very very unhappy, - If this fix doesnt work, try taking a very large object and gently smash it 5 times on the front screen - and tell me it isnt any more useless that it was before. Great work SAMSUNG keep it up!!

  35. I used to hate when an iPhone user was included in a multi person text and their reply went to everyone. Now with the new update, my s3 does it and I haven't found out how to stop it. I hate it!
