Samsung have begun the release of Android 4.3 for the SIII model.
It is only available for Vodafone (Ireland) at present, but over the next few weeks it should be available for more countries. I suppose now we will get all the usual moaners crying "I want 4.3. Why isn't it available in --------".
Please be patient, it takes time to release it for all countries.

Yes its normal that this fone takes 3-4hrs to charge from zero. Yes it heats up with normal net usage if u keep it ON full day for watsapp & FB, but it also cools down normally. Pls turn off the auto light adjustment & turn on the power saver then ur battery will give u atleast 12hrs back up. God knows wen mobile manufacturer will listen & make phones with cooling technology or the smartphone that never heats up!!

19300 4.3 leak has released.
I have had my S3 for 10 months now and have no real complaints. I find the S3 to be a big improvement on the original Samsung Galaxy S that I once owned. This is partly due to better hardware and partly because of the advances made with Android.
However, there are things that annoy me still with the phone so I couldn't recommend it to anyone else.
I have friends who also own this phone and they are of the same opinion as me. I won't go into details because I don't want to upset any fan boys or start a flame war. But I will say one thing about this phone that annoys me the most and that is the lag. Given the fact that it has advanced hardware, Samsung have ruined my experience with their laggy GUI. They have also disappointed me by delaying the update to 4.2.2.
For those reasons I decided to give Nokia Lumia a try and so far I've been really pleased with the Lumia phones I currently have. I have the 920, 1020 and I bought my wife the 620.
None of the Lumia phones have disappointed me at all. There is zero lag on any of them which is thanks to Windows Phone 8 not requiring that much in terms of system resources. My current daily driver is the 1020 which I personally think is the best phone I have ever owned.
To be honest, the S3 is a great phone but I reckon it will be my last Android phone now that I have tasted Lumia and Windows Phone.
Enjoy your S3's guy's and please don't take any offence from my opinions
muffy, 02 Nov 2013will there be any harm to my S3 if I use any other charger instead of the charger supplied wit... moreNo, you will not damage your S3 by using a charger manufactured by someone else. As long as the charger is made by a reputable manufacturer and not some unknown Chinese OEM you should be fine.
