Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Sprint gets Jelly Bean 4.2.1 update


We always try to keep our readership informed about operating system updates for their smartphones and tablets and today there’s good news if you have the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Sprint. Android Jelly Bean 4.2.1 is now available for this device although please note this is for the Sprint variety of the phone and not for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon.

Sprint Galaxy Nexus owners should be well-satisfied as the 4.2.1 update (Build JRO03U.L700GA02) comes only shortly after the initial update to JB 4.2, while unfortunately the wait goes on for Verizon owners of the same device. If you want to check for the OTA (over-the-air) update simply head through the normal route via Settings>About Menu. Alternatively download the 4.2.1 update through Google at the source link below.

This update will bring various improvements to your Galaxy Nexus such as a revamped camera interface and the much-lauded PhotoSphere feature, which is extremely impressive and that many people will be looking forward to. It also means that users will be able to access some apps without having to unlock the screen, with the use of lockscreen widgets. If you want the camera app for example, simply sidescroll to the right while for other apps sidescroll to the left.

Also you can access the Notifications Shade by swiping from the top downwards and if you want to expand a notification or take action on it you only need to tap on it. This should be a very welcome update, especially the new Photo Sphere feature that will give you a 360-degree Panorama mode.

If you are a Galaxy Nexus on Sprint owner, let us know if this Jelly Bean update goes smoothly and what you think of the 4.2.1 improvements? Maybe you’re a Verizon customers still waiting for your update for the Galaxy Nexus and wondering why you’re still waiting? Let us know with your comments.

    I have the Sprint Nexus. I have to say I’m extremely satisfied with the new update. It’s just as smooth and seemless as I heard it would be. I hope verizon steps up for those on verizon!
