The 4.3 I9305XXUENA1 doesn't have any problem with battery or applications!! it solved all my problems.
got new S3 and upgraded it to 4.3 but now the phone has become too slow and also certain appications have started functioning abnormally like gallery, camera which exits by itself :( :(
waiting for a solution ...
This update made the phone lag like anything. 4.3 update sucks... Waiting for 4.4 update..
4.3 is a waste of time - has reduced battery life by about 50%. Having to continuously manage apps to get a whole day out of a charge, and I'm a light user by most standards. Samsung need to sort this one out or go quickly to 4.4
DO not upgrade!!! I had mine upgraded and it was OK for a few days. A few days only, mind you. There after, the whole phone keep on rebooting without stopping and cannot even charge. Data receiving becomes very erratic and phone at times just cut off. I am bringing back to the agent .
Read the comments sections before you update, everyone seems to be having issues with the new update.
I have the s3 lte version, i live in Cyprus and i haven t received the update yet..
I like how everything looks, getting used to where stuff was moved to. But since the update, my phone keeps redownloading everything I've ever downloaded. Like every few minutes! It's killing my battery!

So in this case you are so immature that even though it announced that you are getting the update and it is rolling out to most places as we speak, that you cannot live your life without anger because you have not received it yet....Got you. Even though it should also be going up to 4.4.

I got the update on my s3 lte international (Greece).
Pros: great colors on the screen, newer better app icons, some more features in camera, better organisation on the settings, some new motion gestures and other features, transparent notification bar, lock screen widgets.
Cons: the phone lag a lot, sometimes it does not register my touch on the screen, more ram usage (before when I pressed Clear Memory, the default memory that was left used was 0.7GB, now it is 0.99GB), sometimes it takes up to 3 seconds to wake up after I pressed the power button.
Keep in mind that I did not make a factory reset, maybe with a factory reset these problems will disappear, but I currently do not have time to setup my phone again.
If someone had the same problems and manage to fix them with factory reset or some other way, please inform us.
Just updated to 4.3 early this morning...major mistake!!! I hate this new S4 wannabe. Does anyone know if it is possible to reinstall the older version of JB??? I am really FURIOUS over the slimy endrun with Google Maps. I hate the new maps, so I uninstalled the updates and kept the one-touch, older Navigation. This update automatically erases the older version and forces the new Maps on you w/o your knowing until too late. The S-voice sounds like some amateur soundboard piece of crap instead of the near-human voice from my S3...WTF????
