    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 , Android 4.3 , Gallery issue

    Hey guys,

    First of all thanks for taking the time for reading this post.

    About a week ago I installed the version of 4.3 Android to my Samsung Galaxy S3. I noticed a few changes. One of them is that my gallery has changed. In the previous version I could go to an album and see like 12 pictures at the same time. Now I have the problem that I can only see three, and in order to see other pictures I have to scroll down.

    My brother and sister also have the S3 and the new upgrade but they can still see like more pictures at the same time. I also noticed that when I open my gallery, at the bottom I see this:

    < (gallery icon) Camera ( amount of photos) and on the right the camera icon. While the devices from my brother and sister also show the icon of making an album/map)

    How come this is different? I believe there must be something wrong.

    Hopefully someone can help me. Thanks in advance!

    Go to Settings - Applications - Gallery and clear cache, that should help for the issue. I don't know what would have caused it, perhaps there are galleries with no images but still taking space? A little on the unlikely side, but still possible.

    Same issue here. Galaxy S3 recently updated to 4.3 via OTA. Now I can only see 3 big pictures at a time per folder, where as before I could see around 12. You used to also be able to swipe left and the album section would disappear showing even more pictures. Scrolling to the bottom of an album with alot of photos is very painful.

    Funny thing is, I know one other person who has this issue and one who doesn't, all running 4.3. I'm thinking it may be specific to certain network operators. I'm on Ee (t mobile) in the UK. What about everyone else?

    In the meantime I am using QuickPic app which is perfection, but I'd rather be using the stock gallery app. Bizarre!

    I am also with t-mobile so maybe it willl be the provider. I did an hard reset though and it helped. All back to normal now.

    Cool, thanks for letting us know. I will try it later today. When you did a hard reset, did it revert you back to an older version of andriod or did you stay on 4.3?
    Thanks.

    It will stay on 4.3, the latest version you have installed. Just a tip but make sure you have a backup of you apps, fotos and contacts. You can easily do this with an google account. Goodluck with it!
