Is 4.3JB in S3 rolling out in phillipines
I didn't get any update.
Settings>about phone>software update
samsung make over 9000 models of phone and later give excuses for not giving updates. where is updates for galaxy core, duos, s4 lte a and advance? where is update for neo series? where is update for note 2 plus?
in the mean time my 2 year old 100$ lumia 520 will get this wp8.1
tbas102, 20 Feb 2014as if they said the same about s2 not getting 4.2 and it did. the s3 will get it guarantee.Read my lips when I say: Samsung Galaxy S2 will not receive android 4.2, only Samsung Galaxy S2 plus will. Now about SGS3 - we all know that it had a lot of problems with update to 4.3, maybe its the main reason why they drops update... But with this tendency I think 4.4 will be the last update for my SGN2 also...
drdzija, 20 Feb 2014The reason why Grand will get the update and S3 won't is difference in effective RAM. Although... morefake dealer dont spread wrong info.if u dont know anything shut ur mouth.moto g also have 1 gb ram and 720p screen with more ppi and it can handel kitkat like butter.
This seems about right. They can't support their phones forever. I've never had a Samsung device, but I can't blame them for stopping the update cycle. Now, if the s4 didn't get 4.4, THEN it would be something to rage about.
Cmon Guys, its not even an official release.. Lets wait.. My opinion is that S3 should get 4.4..
1 Gb can't be the reason, because Moto G is running KitKat very very well.
tbas102, 20 Feb 2014as if they said the same about s2 not getting 4.2 and it did. the s3 will get it guarantee.folks its not the same samsung as earlier.. its now a lot greedy n money sucking brand... with worst support for its customers
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2014nokia X has 512mb ram and its going to get Kitkat and heres this joke cmon samsung learn somet... moresamsung is not bothered about its users... they just get greedy.. should be given worst brand drama award for looting customers and flooding markets with plenty of variants with a minor difference and then now go to extent of killing a capable flagship phone than many other models out there receving update...
as if they said the same about s2 not getting 4.2 and it did. the s3 will get it guarantee.
nokia X has 512mb ram and its going to get Kitkat and heres this joke cmon samsung learn something from nokia haha xD
The reason why Grand will get the update and S3 won't is difference in effective RAM. Although they look the same on paper with 1GB of RAM, Grand has effectively more RAM than S3 because of lower screen resolution (Grand's 800x480 vs S3's 1280x720). The higher the resolution, the higher the stress on components. That is what you get from geeky chase of higher ppi. That's pretty much the same reason why S3 US version will get this update, because the 2GB of RAM can handle it good enough despite the 720p screen res. This is experience talking because I'm a cell phone dealer.
I will update tomorrow when i got home from work, does anyone already update the Galaxy S4 T Mobile M919???
samsung just killed international s3.. no kitkat 4.4 update for it... now it joins the club of abondoned flagship members.. its not even 2 years... and then same will be for s4 and who knows s5 with its 100 variants may not get update at all.. the only point of view for samsung is they care for u until u buy their product and after that you can go to hell... their mission is successful... whereas apple still updates even its 2010 products.. even though i dont like their products looking the way amsung is treatin g its customers one day its evident all potential buyers of new flagships shelling out so huge amount on it will land in same situation shortly.. then s6 s7 s8 s9 s10... and so on...
