Samsung in the beginning of this year, started the revival of the phone which started Samsung’s success to the top of the food chain, the Galaxy S2. The Galaxy S2 started receiving the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update. Slowly and gradually the update started rolling out all around the world, first for the international version (GT-I9100) and later to the various carrier versions. Recently the update touched the Australian outback, with users of Telstra getting the update.
Its been a long time waiting, but it was worth it, the I9100TDVLSK Jelly bean update blows new life into the smartphone, with a completely new Nature UX UI, found in the Galaxy S3, Galaxy S3 Mini and Galaxy Note II. Features from the Galaxy S3 include, Smart stay, Pop up play, Direct Call etc. Jelly Bean features include Google’s new and improved voice search and Google Now etc. As it is a carrier device, you get the Telstra One widget as well as Big Pond news widgets. There is also a widget call “my account” which tells you how much data has been used.
