*Opens his eyes at 5:00 a.m. on 13th December , 2013 Friday*
*Checks time on his mobile phone*
*Amazed to see that it shows a firmware update is available!*
*Sleeps back hoping finally the 4.3 has arrived, with a dedicated oath to get a 3g plan to download it*
*At 1 p.m. gets a big data plan plan recharge*
*Rushes home and quickly puts on the download*
*Finds out it was just 13.07 mb of minor update that Samsung did (-_-)*
*Checks on google maps the nearest iphone store*

The End - What the hell samsung! ?

On the contrary of what people think about Sammy, it keeps updating its phones even within same android build.

So... Kinda off topic, but I just checked my note3 at random even knowing that I'm not expecting 4.4 till Jan at the earliest (knowing Aussie telcos I'm guessing march-june) And it said that there is a firmware update available. Anyone paid enough attention to what's going on to know which upgrade this is?

Just installed here in the Netherlands on my i9305 and running like a charm. Device just got even speedier. Now that's how an update should be. Good job Samsung.

Being in the tech field myself, I wouldn't recommend Samsung to any of my peers. Poor Performance Samsung! Shame!

I have an unlocked international i9300GT.
Still haven't received any software update. Far as we'd heard the 4.3 update had been retracted for battery drain and performance issues...
