How stinking cute is this picture above!?  I kinda want it painted on my wall, but the only problem is that in a couple months it will be outdated, and I’ll have to add on another race participant.  Eventually, I will run out of wall space.  I get sidetracked easily.  Can you tell?  Ok, back to the purpose of this post…

I know 4.1.2 has been out for quite some time now, so I’m am a little late with my timing, but I have ran into a lot of people lately asking me about whether or not they should do this update on their Galaxy S3’s and Note 2’s.  I’m guessing they haven’t yet, because they have either 1. Been deferring it or 2. Have recently received replacement devices without the upgraded software version.

JellyBean 4.1.2 brings a ton of new features to the Galaxy S3 (most of which came standard on the Note 2 out of box).  Some of these enhancements include:

  • Multi-View (Multi-Windows Multitasking, Same as Note 2)

  • Page Buddy
  • New Gallery App (Same as Note 2)
  • Brightness Slider In Notification Panel Can Now Be Disabled
  • Notification Panel Can Now Be Customized
  • Smart Rotation (Screen Display Auto Adjusts To Your Angle of Sight)
  • Continues Input in Samsung Keyboard (Like Swype or Android 4.2 Keyboard)
  • Paper Artist App
  • Group Cast App

If you have the Note 2, by performing this update, you will be able to use more apps in the Multi-Window function.  This Rocks!

If you haven’t gotten a pop up message alerting you to download the software update, you can always check by navigating to:
