If it's tech, there will be security issues and it is no different for your Samsung Galaxy S3. It has been revealed over the last few days that you, or some shady character who is pawing your precious, can bypass the security lockscreen on your phone by taking advantage of a security bug. The bug takes advantage of a combination of unlocking accessing the emergency call feature on your Galaxy S3 along with a combination of the home and power button. This in fact disables the lock screen on your galaxy entirely. So for now, keep it hidden, keep it safe! =)
That headline ought to get any Brits with a Galaxy S3 drooling. According to Engadget there is a "multi-week update" coming soon. As we've experienced with previous updates and Samsung phones, we'll still have to wait for all the networks to test things out fully before we get a taste of the sweet sweet jelly bean. Hopefully they won't keep us waiting too much longer though.
If you're based in the USA, you may already have Google Wallet on your Sprint Galaxy S3 handset. If you're on US Cellular you are due a treat. Along with some other updates, the latest update should bring Google Wallet to you too! You can try the Over The Air (OTA) update from the Phone settings, or you can manually update with these instructions from Samsung.
Those of you who can't wait for 4G speeds on your phone may want to get in on this action. The new network, EE, is not yet fully in action, but you can prepare for it by getting an LTE ready phone from Orange or T-Mobile today. The Samsung Galaxy SIII LTE version is available from both the networks, and once EE is live, you'll get it. Full details here. OR if you just wanna buy it already, click here for the Titanium Grey S3, or here for the Marble White S3.
Just a quick little rant from the airport on my way somehere warmer. I am sure I am not the one who has gotten bored and frustrated with these patent wars. Yes, I'm quite loyal to Samsung, so that 1 billion law suit felt pretty harsh. Google's Eric Schmidt recently put it very well, "The war for marketshare ought to be fought with the release of better products, rather legal maneuvering".
