Don't update it...really problem...lock screen lagging, batt drain issue ~~
really is a problem version....dun update it, unlock lag, batt drain & heating problem....
I just updated my phone few hours ago, and I wrote an email to samsung, because this update is the worst I've ever seen!
Home button doesn't work properly as the power button.
Wi Fi doesn't work at all.
Battery drains so fast.
I'm so disappointed
I hope they are releasing a patch ASAP
SG I9300 - My first and last Samsung. Pathetic camera (all my Nokia phones from NSeries were better), waiting 10 seconds to show the dial pad on stock rom,waiting for 4.3 and now they say the new upgrade decreases performance because it has 1GB Ram? How come last year's flagship, benchmark killer and etc can be obsolete in 6 mounts? I paid 400eur for crap. Back to Nokia for me. The kernel is the same and it should be 3.4. And worse is Samsung haven't responded for this upgrade. At least Jobs responded with "You're holding it wrong" instead of ignoring the users that bought this phone and made this company No.1
Faster, smoother, more user friendly UI. overall better than before
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2013Is it only for S3?? Wat abt Note3note 3 is already running android 4.3 out from the box
ha so all the samsung fanbois always knock Sony for slow updates but in matter fact they take longer because they test the rom before releasing it, obviously Samsung didnt do a QA prior to this release, disappointing!

bizu, 12 Nov 2013Do not upgrade, yet ! This is not a joke.
1. huge lag on unlock screen (betw... moreYeah u r right, the lag of lock screen is too much.
do u have an idea if it is the same for the uk version?
did u try it? I'm hoping this version is better.
In the uk. Using an unbranded s4... well annoyed they removed the 3x4 keyboard. I predominantly use one hand. I can't see why samsung would do this. The knox also seems a bit buggy. Slight decrease and battery and a couple new apps that cant be disabled or uninstalled. Couple fixes and improvements here and there. Like the decluttering of the notification slider from all to just 10 shortcuts.
I've already updated and I (like many others) regret it. It has many of the features listed in the post (I haven't seen more display modes to be hones). And there are a lost of issues with it.
