UK Samsung Galaxy S3 III I9300 Gets New I9300XXBLFB Official Firmware Update

United Kingdom unbranded Samsung Galaxy S III now again receives another Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich firmware update with a build number of I9300XXBLFB. This is the 2nd time in row that UK Galaxy S3 users can update again to the newest firmware build from previous released I9100XXALF2.

This said new update seems will take effect with only some minor changes from previous build. And now of course the big question is: what has changed? Or rather: what has improved? Since the Galaxy S3 releases in UK market some users already complaining some issues like the re-drawing in the home screen and the auto brightness control problem.

So let's tackle for a while and check out some as we have just performed the update until it is too early to find all kinds of things to make with certainty - that we do over the next few days though.

Redraw issue (not sure if already fix)
The "redraw bug - in which the interface should be displayed remarkably slow again after you come out of an app we have not seen - but that we had before the update either. Or so this is resolved, we can not say

Some controls seems a little bit improved and become smother - many will not (as far as this can also, of course). As I said, hopefully we can soon see more changes and or report improvements and either some bugs issues appears.
