This is no way to treat your customers SAMSUNG. We bought S3 thinking that it could be the best deal. But now it seems quite the opposite. We are hoping for an update that will at least fix our battery problem with s3.
Even shitty Karbon phones on sub $150 category are launching phones on kitkat with 512 MB ram on board...Shamesung is a big joke
how come other brands can come up with phones with 1gb ram and running kitkat out of the box and samsunng cannot. also many other small timers having updates to 4.4 for their phones with only 1 gb ram. thus, the reason of having only 1gb ram in s3 i9300 as limitation for not upgrading to 4.4 kitkat is crap.
samsung is just too lazy to care for its customers forcing its faithful followers to switch to other brands.
samsung should know this that majority of its customers have already switched to other brands and the remaining will also soon if this type of customer relation ship continues.
its this same reason samsung's new phones like note3 and s5 are not so successful, because people know that they will be abandoned soon, thus no point shelling out so much for a phone which will soon be forgotten by its creator themselves.
Shame on you Samsung.
You disappointed S3 users.
Good bye Samsung. ****

Those phones already come with a stripped-down version of Touchwiz to be able to run on 512MB of RAM. Plus, screen res is lower. They certainly can't remove features to Touchwiz just to upgrade current S3s to KitKat. I sort of agree with Samsung's move. S3s won't catch fire without KitKat, they will continue to run well.
Heheheeheeheeh! My Nexus 4 is getting Android L in fall! Your s****y plastic S3 won't even get KitKat!
When the recently announced Galaxy Ace 4 which has only 512 MB RAM can have Kitkat version, then why cant the Galaxy S3, which has more juice than any of your recent releases (Ace 4, Core 2, etc.)....SCAMSUNG!!!
My Galaxy s III I9300 is languishing on 4.1.2 as apparently i already have the latest update... anyone put cyanogen mod on theirs, do you like it?
Samsung did a VERY BIG MISTAKE on not rolling out Kitkat update for S3 International Version. Its your best selling brand but then you disappointed a lot of S3 users. How come Motorola and Sony can run Kitkat on their phone with 1gb ram only ? C'mon Samsung make some move, or else you will lose a lot of S3 users and go to Sony phones !
gordon, 13 May 2014 If you are the Galaxy S III users on Sprint then we have a good news for you that Sprint has... moreWell gordon...thats coz the sprint version of the s3 comes with 1.5 GB of RAM, nevertheless its a lame excuse from Samsung that Kitkat wont run on 1 GB version...Sony is willing to roll out 4.4 for devices running the same specs and lower...dunno why samsung wont.
no kitkat for S3 mini ?
I'm disappoint !
Isn't S3 designed for human ?
where the humanization for this ?? lol
Seriously I'm very disappoint,
it's a goodbye from me to Samsung.
I will never ever buy it again !
This is not at all fare. in future prompt costumers also wont prefer samsung mobiles. you cheated us samsung. if there is no updates in s3 in india, why the **** sell the s3 still in the market of Rs. 23500 INR.
Its big cheating. Good bye to samsung mobiles
If you are the Galaxy S III users on Sprint then we have a good news for you that Sprint has confirmed the roll out of the KitKat update for your device.

Shame on you Samsung ,
Are you kidding us with your ridiculous news ??!
If you can't provide software updat for i9300 so why do you name it universal or international model ???
If you're going to make us angry So we will change our platform into iOS
If I can still remember, KitKat has been made for 512MB devices as well. That's what you get for patronizing Samsung...
