First of all, I am NOT posting under different names. The other person you are referring to was using copy & paste to post my comment elsewhere.
You call the update process 'cumbersome', but in actual fact you are just angry because you aren't at the front of the queue. Samsung sold over 100 million S3 models, and is approaching 50 million S4. Can you imagine 150 million phone users all trying to use the Samsung servers at the same time?
You demand that Samsung should find a better way of issuing updates. Well what do you suggest. You tell us a better way of doing it. I bet you cant!
Please keep posting, I do enjoy reading your comments (but mind your blood pressure).

I hope I answered your question..

Bro,if u plan to buy a phone i can give u some help by my experience,sony cell phones r v good in use with fast 3g,2g signals,internet speed and camera but as the time passes they start to give problems in hanging,freezing and battery backup get worse.
As the same matter to htc but htc gives lot more lesser problem in hanging or freezing but battery get worse by the period of time.
samsung has improved much in all scenarios but still need to cover battery backup bcos after 6 to 8 months battery power is started more consumption in samsung sets whether u change new battery.
nokia is best in reliability and built with good body n chips along with battery back up.only worst part they have not adopted android.if they did so they would remain the leader in cell phone market.

What an angry little boy you are!

Updates are sent out country by country. If Samsung released the update to every country at the same time their servers would go into meltdown.

Here in the UK the update has been released for the unbranded model. I have received the Firmware AND the camera updates. You will just have to curb your temper and wait until it is released wherever you are.

Foul language won't get you the Firmware updates any faster.

The last part of my post is wrong. I was reciting from when I used to wipe the cache on my S3. On the S4, when you select 'wipe cache partition' the screen shows 'error' (but it has flushed the cache), and then reboots by itself.
I have just done my S4 and it works.

No, it is similar but different (?). Turn your phone OFF completely. Then restart by holding Volume UP and the Home button together, and while holding those down press the POWER button until the Samsung logo appears. (Three button reset). Then release all three buttons and you will see the Android robot appear and the phone will enter Recovery mode. Use the Vol Up/Dn button to select 'wipe cache partition' and press the Power button. When the menu reappears select 'Reboot system now' and press the Power button again and your phone will reboot.

You don't seem to have any idea of how updating works; you would rather rant and rave without finding out.
Let's say for instance that Samsung finish an update on 01/11/13. They then have to send the update out to each carrier in each country for approval. The carrier installs the update and then tries it out for let's say 2 weeks. Then the carrier reports back to Samsung on 15/11/13 and wants an alteration to the Firmware. Samsung have rewrite the Firmware and then send it out again. 2 weeks later the carrier reports back to Samsung approving the Firmware (now 28/11/13) and it gets released.
You moan about the slow update on your laptop. It's your connection at fault, not Samsung's problem.
My OTA update took less than 30 minutes. The file size is 1.6Gb, what do you expect on a laptop.
I downloaded a backup the Firmware for my own use. Now, I have a 60Mb Broadband Fibre Optic connection and that download took about 20 minutes (it took that long because it was a busy time of day).
Stop blaming everyone else.
