T-Mobile recently released an Android 4.1.2 with Multi-Window update for its Galaxy S3, but reports are coming in that the upgrade comes with a keyboard problem.
According to a number of T-Mobile Galaxy S3 users, the virtual keyboard shows some noticeable lag after upgrading from Android 4.1.1.
"My phone is moving slower (keyboard appearing second later instead of instantly; the swipe on contacts to make calls won't work) and it's quite annoying. Wish I could get the last version back," wrote msadamas in a comment on the previous Latinos Post article detailing the rollout and its new features.
Scoutingwraith on an XDA Developers forum said, "After a couple of days of using the new version im getting annoyed with it because the keyboard always shows up for up to 3 seconds later when i need to type something. My homescreen folders are laggy as hell when opening as well. I need to ask is there a way to go back to the 4.1.1 official update before the update ?"
T-Mobile's own support forums also indicated that the keyboard lag issue was affecting users.
"Last night I got the OTA prompt to update my Samsung S3 to 4.1.2. After the update I have had continual problems with the functionality of the virtual keyboard," wrote Wade on T-Mobile's support site.
"This is completely unacceptable. I am pretty experienced with Android phone and I have been trouble shooting it and I know it is because of the 4.1.2 update. My phone was working just fine before I updated it. I have restarted my phone with no luck. I have also done some research on the internet and this is what appears to be a common problem after the 4.1.2 update."
T-Mobile has not yet commented on the matter, and it is unsure whether the carrier will warrant this a serious enough bug to push out a fix.
