Galaxy S III Video Maker now available through Samsung Apps, too

As we mentioned in our full review, one of our pet peeves with the Samsung Galaxy S III is the way automatic brightness always defaults to too low a level, combined with the fact that there's no brightness widget or control in the notification area. And it looks like Samsung's heard our complaints, as a second over-the-air update for the international Galaxy S III adds a dedicated brightness control to the notification area, allowing S III owners to set a level manually, or enable auto-brightness.

We're also noticing that the base levels for automatic brightness seems to be a little higher than before, which we're sure S III owners will see as a welcome change. In addition, it seems that there's a new icon for daylight savings in the clock widget, as well as a freshly-baked kernel and radio firmware. The new software version is still based on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, build IMM76D.

What's more, Samsung Video Maker app, absent from the Galaxy S III at launch, is now available via Samsung Apps under the "More Services" section, weighing in at 34MB.

If you're an unlocked Galaxy S III owner in the UK, you'll be able to grab the new update to firmware version XXLFB from Samsung's Kies desktop application.
