Following the preliminary injunction handed down against Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, it seems that Samsung is taking some preventive measures as it pertains to the Samsung Galaxy S III. Reports are coming in that Galaxy S III users on Sprint have received a “security update” to their devices that removes the universal search feature implemented by Android.
Translation? Now, the quick search bar on the Android homescreen will only fetch results from Google and will not scour for data on a user’s own device. For example, searching for Bon Jovi will only yield Google results and no listings for any Bon Jovi songs you might have on your phone.
