Most folk are on 2 year contract so time to upgrade to S5 anyway..Why should they bother with old phones I wouldn't if I owned phone company..Times change fast in tech folk owning S3 should be buying S5 now especially if you visit gsmarena u must be a geek to do that...Geeks have new kit the S3 is 2 years old now..
so s3 had out of the box 4.1 if im remember right and still its JB. i have s2 it was 2.3.4 out of the box, and got officials updates till 4.1.2. much more updates where made. and now im running 4.4.2 custom rom and phones fells superb. Alot better than JB

pavle, 20 Feb 2014Bought my iphone 4 in 2010 :), 4 years of updates friends or 48 months, ios 7 will be the last... morelol all good features from iOS 5,6,7 are missing from iPhone 4.
I own an iPod Touch 4th gen and its somewhat in same boat as iPhone 4 (apart from iOS 7 update).
No Flyover and turn-by-turn GPS
No FaceTime over 3G/4G
No iPhone hearing aids
No Offline Reading List
No Voice Dictation
All major features (as what Apple boasts) are missing.
I don't why do Apple call updates as "iOS x" , they are service packs or patches at best
Galaxy SIII not getting android 4.4?
Samsung, you just lost your shot at making me buy an S5.
pavle, 20 Feb 2014Bought my iphone 4 in 2010 :), 4 years of updates friends or 48 months, ios 7 will be the last... moreYou come on here an gloat that your have an outdated phone that runs a current OS? Tell me, how is the experience using iOS7 on the iPhone 4? I'll answer it for you since i have an iPhone 4 too - it's ABYSMAL. The phone couldn't operate any slower and it's overall just a pain in the ass. Not to mention iOS7 is UGLY
AnonD-79518, 20 Feb 2014Lol now one x users and s3 users in the same boat... I'm one x userHow ? S3 is in 4.3 while One X is in 4.2.2 ?
Well I use for now an T999 no problem with 4.4 however I always use Cyanogen mod since I dont like the tons of bloatware they install on the S3. So, no worries at all.
Here's how it breaks down for devices in the U.S.:
Galaxy Note 3
Galaxy Note II
Galaxy S4 mini
Galaxy S4 Active
Galaxy S4 zoom
Galaxy S III
Galaxy S III mini
Galaxy Note 8.0
Galaxy Tab 3
Galaxy Note 10.1
Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition
Updates begin today, Samsung says — it didn't mention on which devices — so stay tuned.
Lol now one x users and s3 users in the same boat...
I'm one x user
I dont believe it . It must have to support KitKat 4.4 .
Grand is not better than Galaxy S3 i9300 yet it will get KitKat update . What a fu** samsung ! i will kick samsung for my next smartphone choice if it will happen.
I truly believe this is not true.
Samsung said it is goning to update S III, and if they are not, many people are going to leave Sammy.
The main reason to update S III to KitKat is that the 4.3 is still buggy and the battery life sucks :S
I hope Sammy is going to do the right thing.
Go Sammy, we are with you :)
Still 4.3 not available for Saudi users... big joke..4.4 is a dream
Even if the grand 2 was meant to be listed instead of the first grand, the tab 3 7.0 only has 1gb RAM, so that can't be the reason. This is truly disappointing Samsung, I always thought that Samsung were generally good with updates. But the S3 is not even two years old, and is perfectly capable of running kitkat.
