Samsung Galaxy S3, Note 2 Android 4.4 update needed
Samsung Galaxy S3
Encounters Bugs after 4.3
Xperia SP is a better build over Galaxy S3 cheap plastic body. Also Xperia has top end Adreno 320 Graphics processor compared to much weaker Mali-400MP controller on the Galaxy S3. Quality and performance matter for a smartphone thats why iphone has that much reputation. Galaxy S3 have a horrible Android 4.3 update which anybody can google it.
Sony Xperia SP is faster and more efficient than Galaxy S3. My Xperia SP scored 20772 points on ANTUTU benchmark were as Galaxy S3 only got 17900 point. I'm saying SP more efficient because it beats S3 even SP is just a duel core, thanks to the Snapdragon S4 pro chipset. The phone is butter smooth to use with no nonsense battery drain problems. Those who are confused between SP & S3, SP is the obvious choice.
I want to get this phone, has good battery life, great screen, good amount of memory and ram, nice camera, why not right? Pls reply what yoi think I should do.

Freefaller™, 13 Nov 2013It appears that Samsung have stopped the v4.3 update for the S3 due to the number of complaint... moreYup. Unfortunately Samsung did pulled the 4.3 update. Very shame on you Samsung. Atleast learn from ur mistakes and release the stable free update.
Freefaller™, 13 Nov 2013It appears that Samsung have stopped the v4.3 update for the S3 due to the number of complaint... moreMy NEXUS 7 running JB4.3, I don't have problem. Maybe S3 have hardware problem. By the way Freefaller™ and Anthony, have you noticed that GSMarena hiring talent person. You guys should apply
It appears that Samsung have stopped the v4.3 update for the S3 due to the number of complaints about it:
If this is true then it is an embarrassing climbdown for Samsung.
Can anyone confirm the rumour?
stumpy, 12 Nov 2013Got my 4.3 yesterday 11/11/13. stick with 4.2 :/ @ stumpy
"I told you so!"
after upgrading my phone to 4.3 it is found to be slow, battery drained more quickly and hanged several times.
Still waiting for 4.3 update on my UK carrier. Would be nice to see 4.4 eventually come this way, especially with it being flaunted as designed to run well - even on phones with 512mb ram (half that of the S3). May involve waiting forever...?
I still don't understand why many websites like pocketnow, even GSMARENA has not broadcasted this issue about ridiculous 4.3 update by Samsung. We've seen Apple IOS6 problems has been headlined by many websites so why not post these issues. I mean everyone in the world was very disappointed with this stupid update for galaxy S3. Please post this issue as this will add pressure and wake-up call to Samsung developers for releasing the bugfix 4.3 update soon.
