Anonymous, 15 Jan 2014If i buy this phone will it have 4.3 on it because I hear it's terrible?@ Anonymous
No, it won't come with Android v4.3 because that Firmware is a recent release, and any Galaxy S3 you will find in a store will still have older Firmware on it.
The problem with Android v4.3 is that the EFS folder is written in a format that older versions cannot read; so if you do upgrade then you are stuck with it and there is no way back as I found out when I tried to reflash my phone with v4.1.2 - it just went into an eternal 'bootloop'.

and with the smart eye,on s4 it`s always on that`s why i get the icon there.

it lasted 27 hours with 5 hours on wifi (downloading movies with utorrent,installing applications,etc) ,playing for 30-45 min. so i guess it`s good
