The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been given its first firmware update. Although not a major fix by any means, it’s a reassuring nod towards the notion that Samsung is taking the quality of the phone’s software seriously.
Samsung has released an early firmware update for the Samsung Galaxy S3. It provides little more than “improved stability”, but should help to smooth-over some of the cracks that are still visible in Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. The update is being distributed over the air, and is a 31.17MB that can be snagged over Wi-Fi or 3G.
Slashgear writes that the initial download also sparks off a second 15.57MB update, but then that’s hardly going to decimate your data allowance. To check for the software update, head to the Settings menu, go to the About Device Tab then tap Software Update to get to the right sub-menu.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has managed to launch without a great deal of scandal or techy faux-pas. Some don’t like its plastic back and there have been predictable device shortages, but there has been no Antennagate-esque scandal – yet. That said, Apple is trying to get the phone banned in the US based on its claimed breaking of patents owned by the iPhone maker.
