varun13, 07 Nov 2013Mr abhijit wishwas here is the Answer to your comment. http://m.gsmarena.com/galaxy_s_iii_... moreUs note 1 users dont get no more updates tho.4.1.2 we are stuck on. How sad is that ;-(
It will be great if Samsung adopts pure andriod instead of Touchwiz . Cause its easy to update a pure andriod device rather than a complicated Touchwiz.
Andriod has grown very much since cupcake to the latest version of the Kitkat and it covers up all the features that Touchwiz was intended for Eg: dailerpad , file manager etc . Though filemanager should be downloaded separately from store for pure android, otherwise it covers up all Touchwiz features. Some of you may think Touchwiz is necessary for Galaxy Note series , but come on Samsung has spent a lot in R&D for Touchwiz if they spend a little more I believe its possible for their flagship to provide updates quickly and reduces costs very much.
edwardz, 07 Nov 20135.0 doesn't even exist...this is just a rumor
How do u know it is a rumour may be it is correct. Sammy people r nt fools dat they mentioned 5.0 they must be knowing it. May be it will come in 2014 but sammy will upgrade s3, note 2 to all new android versions

As you can see here it is clearly mentioned that s3 will get update 5.0 so android 4.4, 4.5, 4.xx will be
Go get some information and then write comment.
Don't underestimate s3 it was a powerful device of 2012.
So, my T, the phone I paid 600 eur for when it was released, 11 months later the official updates stop for it, a "little" bit disappointed Sony. My next device will be for sure a nexus.
Great news!! :-)
Anyone knows if Sony will allow Apps to SD in 4.3 or 4.4?
I have the ZL and don't have an SD card for now, anyone knows if Directory Bind works for the ZL in 4.2?

The S3 is probably the oldest phone to re... moreOh ya, where exactly did samsung tell you that s3 will get 4.4? the 4.3 is the last update for s3, but note2 will get 4.4 if samsung is fast enough, because the note2 has been treated very poorly with updates!
I want the link for 4.4 for s3 announcement! I know you won't be able to coz what you are saying is a lie and what I am saying is true! s3's 18months are over, all it will get know are bug fixes and stuff for another 6 months max!
Currently the best companies in updates are in rank,
1. apple, 2. Sony, 3. Samsung!

Let's see which others get 4.4
Plus I know that xperia M and L can easily run 4.3 and probably even 4.4 with it's hardware, so these phones should get the updates too..... sooner or later!
Updating lower end phones will put sony of top the cellphone manufacturers list...
xperianxt, 07 Nov 2013If you actually read up on Sony international and not just Sony America you would already know... moreThe difference between the Xperia S and the S3 is only 3 months. And remember that for example JB 4.2 was released last year and the phone was not upgraded to 4.2 which was released less than 18 months after the phone was launched. I do like the hardware and design of Sony's smartphones but my next buy will be a Galaxy S or Nexus phone because of software support.
