While most of the world’s Samsung Galaxy S3 owners are anxiously holding their breaths in anticipation of an Android 4.2.2 update, eager beavers can download a test firmware ahead of the official release.

Interested parties can head over to SamMobile, the same Samsung-centric blog that leaked an earlier version of Android 4.2.2 for the Galaxy S3, and grab firmware I9300XXUFME7. The leaked build carries a build date of May 21.

Galaxy S3

The best features of this new update are as following: a brand new S4 lockscreen that adds support for new widgets, Ripple and Light lockscreen unlock effects, custom clock sizes, create a personal message to be shown when the device is locked, Daydream, Driving Mode, new Screen modes borrowed from Galaxy S4, Adapt Display and Profesional Photo, actionable notifications, improved Notification Center, revamped Settings UI that resembles the one used on the S4. Also, you will get Gallery modes, full screen Samsung apps, new S-Voice, smart switch widget and multiple others.

SamMobile has said that the Korean company is on track to complete testing by the end of the month. 

Bear in mind that the leak is only a test build, and while SamMobile does not report any major bugs, it is important to remember that it is not an officially-sanctioned piece of software. Only flash if you have experience doing so.

Will you install this firmware or wait for the official version?

There are quite few bugs in this firmware,here are the some i've experienced
1)Default gps doesn't work but there is one 3rd party gps app included in the package,which i found not very accurate and takes bit more time to get a lock on location.

2)Popular apps such as flipboard,google+,google currents etc and some other apps stopped working after updating those apps.

3)lock screen camera bug.

and some other minor bugs 

And finally,mainly,its very easy to upgrade s3 from your current firmware to this one, but its not very easy to roll back if dont like this firmware.Flashing the older official firmware using the same method i.e by using odin will put your phone in a boot loop.
you have to reboot in clockworkmod recovery and wipe or format certain folders before flashing the official firmware.
