samsung galaxy s4 after the hype aa vs s3

Just last week, Android 4.3 started rolling out to Galaxy S4 handsets on AT&T’s network. If you’ve yet to receive the update, you might be in for a bit longer of a wait than previously expected.

AT&T and Samsung have pulled the Android 4.3 update and are now investigating some potential issues with the build. We can’t say how long the update will be unavailable, though hopefully this is just a temporary delay.

As for those that already grabbed the upgrade to Android 4.3, AT&T has yet to divulge exactly what’s wrong, though reports from Galaxy S4 users suggest some of the problems might have to do with Wi-Fi or cellular data connection issues. There also seems to be a few random bugs and other issues.

Then again, some users seem to be rocking the update with absolutely no noticeable troubles.

We have reached out to AT&T for more details on what exactly the problem is, and have asked for a rough ETA on when the update will start rolling out again. We’ll be sure to update if and when we hear back.

What’s interesting is that this is the second time that Samsung has pulled an Android 4.3 update this month, with the first incident revolving around issues caused by the Android 4.3 update for the Korean and UK version of the Galaxy S3.

For those that already have the AT&T GS4 update to Jelly Bean 4.3 — is everything working alright, or are you running into any unexpected issues?
