Every day Sammy releases new devices but seldom update old devices because Sammy lost track what devices they have launched.
Why huawei honor's 6 specs are much higher (octa core, 3gb ram, fhd display) and the price is lower than a5? And honor looks quite premium, i think...
Tannet, 31 Oct 2014The US spec S3 did get the KitKat update months ago, for having more memory. I dont see any updates here,,, so thats another failure update restriction from countries to country?!!!
At least when Htc bring out an update it will be available for all carriers in one month
DarkRange, 31 Oct 2014If I'm not wrong nexus 4 is more than 18months year old and it gets lollipop... And wow let me... moreThe US spec S3 did get the KitKat update months ago, for having more memory.
Reasonable prices would be Galaxy A3 - around 180 Euro, Galaxy A5 around 230-250 and Galaxy Alpha around 350-380. Such prices would be fair and good enough to turn customers back to Samsung.
Samsung said Galaxy Alpha is kinda of "premium" device... Why they want to kill its "premiality" releasing very similarly looking budget device like A3 ??? Or doesn't it mean that Samsung doesn't believe in Alpha "premiality" and decided to sacrifice it ?
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2014Oow. How old is S3 btw? Get real dude.s3 is bit older than Nexus 4 ... so what is the fuss about... HTC Samsung and LG are lousy with updates...
Anonymous, 31 Oct 2014Oow. How old is S3 btw? Get real dude.When s3 came out it was half of 2012 and 2013 kitkat came out so it should updated for no excuse it was one of samsungs flagship!!! When we see this from samsung we think that samsung won't update s4 either am i true so if you were out there and in these situations do you buy s4 any more now or you go for motorolla that update the whole range of its phones to lollipop?! I know motorolla is aosp and its stock but why samsung creat an heavy custom but with no update it's not worthy when you do a heavy job and you leave it there!!!
if galaxy A3 priced around 200 usd, i will sell my grand duos for this phone.
Alyx, 31 Oct 2014So wait, the A3 has just 1GB of RAM and comes with Android 4.4 and TouchWiz, when the only rea... moreWell it was only an excuse; as you can see galaxy young 2 has only 512mb ram and its running 4.4.2; samsung has many phone from low range to high end devices so it must sacrifise some of it's phones and why not?! If i dont update your phone you have to buy newer phone to enjoy the new apps... Good policy or better i say the evil one!!!
720p is definitely too low for a 5 incher. Won't buy this unless they are 350 euros max. My old M7 is doing better for a cheaper price.
Petrit Avdyli, 31 Oct 2014No it was not. Even Google stops supporting their phones with updates after 18 months. So stop... moreIf I'm not wrong nexus 4 is more than 18months year old and it gets lollipop... And wow let me see galaxy s3 didn't get kitkat even. And it wasn't after 18months so?!!!
But don't worry it's not only samsung but ofcourse LG and HTC have poor update plan...
Samsung still "taking a break" with Kitkat...
When are they going taste llollipop?
Keep on waiting..
