sunny, 19 Dec 2013As we look around the flagship android phones of 2012 the only samsung and google nexsus phone... moreDont lie htc one x and x plus got 4.2 months ago so go home you samsung fanboy. You probably even didnt notice that htc one (not google edition) already has kitkat in US
SentinelBorg, 19 Dec 2013My old Note 2 (German/DBT) got the 4.3 upgrade a few days ago.S3 got rubbish battery.
AnonD-85193, 19 Dec 2013If you have a i9305 then you don't have 4.3, 4.3 has never bean released for the i9305 even in... moreRiiiiiiiiight:
I've installed it today manually - the unbranded UK version from sammobile. For now it works very well, noticeably smoother than 4.1. Let's see how it will hold after a few days.
sunny, 19 Dec 2013As we look around the flagship android phones of 2012 the only samsung and google nexsus phone... moreright on Sunny, lets get real here, Samsung are good to their flagships compared to the rest - and what a great phone the s3 still is, and getting kk too, cant be bad!
"Samsung has never really had a history of updating its phones on time but this time they have truly let their customers down. You'd think that the biggest smartphone manufacturer would know better."
Just another reason why other phones and their prices are justified. Because of their excellent service. Example: Apple and their iPhone.
As we look around the flagship android phones of 2012 the only samsung and google nexsus phone will getting the updates till now . if we look around the other manufactures 2012 flagship phone.they already stop updating there phones for example.
htc one x+ > stops at 4.1.1
sony experia s > stops at 4.1.2
motorola razr maxx hd > stops at 4.1.1
lg optimus g > stops at 4.1.2
oppo find 5 > stops at 4.1.1
so these are the all flagship android phones of 2012 from different manufactures.so we should appreciate the work of samsung which provide the latest updates to almost 2 years old flagship phones. we also know that samsung also planing to give the 4.4 update to s3 in mid 2k14..so what else we expecting from the samsung. be patient ....
istiak, 19 Dec 2013Waiting for note 2 update. does anyone know exact date or info?My old Note 2 (German/DBT) got the 4.3 upgrade a few days ago.
Lol. My new G2 stands better in palm. My S3 looks soooo old. Update to 4.3 won't help S3 any better.
Still waiting for S3 international version. enyway this is my last samsung.
I'm still waiting for my international version.
Imagine when we'll receive KitKat...................................
Yeah, and then you go on and complaining about Apple.... Bravo! Seriously Bravo to all Fandroids!
A reasonable stable nightly of Android 4.4 Kitkat is available in cyanogenmod for Galaxy s3. Why not use it?
Samsung only good at releasing nonsense models but very poor in software/firmware update.
Why can't Samsung spend more time to work on Android OS so that all the old phones get updated.
AnonD-174570, 19 Dec 2013Even Google itself isn't doing a very good job in updating its nexus phones. They promote KitK... morebut you're forgetting that the cost and profit margin on Nexus devices is much lower than on Apple.
the level of service expected on a £500+ device compared to a £250 device should not be the same.
Also there is nothing stopping Nexus 4 users manually updating their device with a Custom ROM.
