Information posted on another thread.

Install Kies on your PC, then simply connect your phone to your PC via it's data cable and Kies will automatically check for updates for you.

I just used this process earlier today and it worked like a champ. I was updated and up and running within 30 minutes.

You can either check for updates via Kies as posted above, or you can check via OTA(over the air). To check via OTA click settings/about phone/software update/update. Make sure you have your wifi turned on.

Did you check in Kies? Sometimes an update will only show in kies and not OTA.

What's your version number under Settings > About device > Android version?

What country are you in and what country did you buy the phone in?

I'm using one of the 4.1.2 leaks and I'd say battery life is comparable. If you only want to charge once a week you'll need to buy a bigger battery.
