premium suite

Back in March, C Spire customers with a Galaxy S3 finally managed to make the jump over to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. While this was a welcome update, it was also missing something that many other carriers had already included: Samsung’s Premium Suite.

The good news is that C Spire has finally brought its GS3-wielding users what they have all been waiting for, a new update that finally includes Premium Suite features.

The rollout of the new “Android 4.1.2 update with Premium Suite” actually began yesterday, and so it should be easily up for grabs by now. While you should get a notification telling you that the update is ready, you can also check manually by heading to Settings > About Device > System Updates > Check Now.

In the event you can’t get the OTA update to work, you can also grab it online through Samsung Kies.

Okay so you now know how to get your hands on the update, but what exactly does the Premium Suite offer? Basically you get some of the new functionality that has made its way into other Samsung phones as of late. This includes support for multi-window view, photo tagging, a reader mode, S-Beam enhancements, and a few other useful improvements.

Have you managed to grab the Premium Suite update on your C Spire GS3 yet? If so, what do you think?

    i got the update. overall it looks the same, the multi window is a joke the screen is to small to do anything useful with it.. makes me feel like i am using a little flip phone from back in the day with a screen the size of a postage stamp. i was hoping i would get a lot of the new stuff that i s4 can do, with the camera and the like, more the ability to take a photo from a video on playback. but i guess they want you to have some reason to get the new unit or what would be the point.

    over all the update could of given us more but it is a step forward, no problem with batt life (yes im looking at you apple) or issues with any inputs on the screen and i have cashed at all, (and thats t you RIM or blackberry whatever you are called now.), so id say its stable, just a bit of a let down with some of the features
