Samsung Galaxy S3 owners on T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T are enjoying Android Jelly Bean, and to think that a few short weeks ago the US’ top four carriers were competing to roll it out first. Verizon had been left out in the cold and last week it finally gave its users the update, although coming in last among the top carriers.
Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update fashionably late
The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update was leaked back in September, which led many to think it’d be out very soon, but it hasn’t been the case. Verizon only got its act together last week.
To add insult to injury, the update has hit Samsung Galaxy S3 handset in over 30 other countries all over the world, including rural carriers in Canada and Australia.
The Verizon Android 4.1.1 update is filled with extra bloatware, and this may be the reason for the delay.
Samsung is thought to be getting Jelly Bean out to the Samsung Galaxy S2 next. Luckily, Verizon is the only of the top 4 US carriers who doesn’t carry this device, as we now already expect them to be lagging. Just look at the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus which is currently 3 updates behind.
For shame Verizon, for shame.
