Santa Claus, 09 May 2014bad move Samsung
i will upgrade my S3 to Lumia 930...what you think about that??...upgrade to z2
Sony will never fail a z series customer.
Lol, been running 4.4.2 kit kat for long.. Cyanogenmod thumbs up!
Samsung you suck!!!! Google had claimed that kitkat is designed for phones that have 500 MB RAM and you give this shit reasons, remove your waste apps and bloatware which the customer doesn't need then it will automatically support. So please don't give us this nonsense
NeXus.AcUa46, 09 May 2014Finally Samsung Galaxy s3 will get a huge cut on the price. I think :DIts already cheap here! Its 266$ !
WinP, 09 May 2014Bull.... Wasn't KitKat designed to support 512MB of RAM? Why do you need 2GB of RAM?new touch wizz for samsung was very heavy for s3
james79, 09 May 2014We all said this would happen and it has - in googles own words they said that KitKat was deve... moreGoogle saying it doesnt make them stupid. You believing it does.
WinXP could run on 64MB, you think it ran great? It barely ran at all, sure KK CAN run on 512MB but its gonna suck bigtime.
We all know that its possible to run Kitkat on a device with 1 Gb of Ram, just remove some Bloatware that u bundle with ur stupid Touchwiz GUI and there u go...but samsung doesnt want that to happen. Eventually someone will come up with a mod or a custom ROM and we all will end up having to root our device for this..but ShameSung will not bow down to their customers
maheshmehta, 09 May 2014Start selling you S3 and S3 Mini on Quikr....at least you will get a good deal... :)S3 mini is so cheap now so you won't get a good deal. In UK an old s2 still sells for more than s3 mini.
KITKAT was made for that reason, consume less resources.
What a sorry ass excuse.
When kit kat got released S3 was only 1.5 years old. So for me it's pathetic not to upgrade it.
2 Years should be the mimimum time Flagship models should get updates.
Bad move samsung.
We all said this would happen and it has - in googles own words they said that KitKat was developed for devices with as little ram as 512mb. At the end of the day s3 has had a good update life as its now over 2 years old meaning that most people who have them will now be out of warranty so rooting is an option. I wonder if in another years time Samsung will be saying 2gb ram isn't enough for s4 to be updated.
Doesn't matter - my i9300 already has a KitKat rom. I've been using 4.4.2 since temasek released his CM 11 rom.
Start selling you S3 and S3 Mini on Quikr....at least you will get a good deal... :)

Finally Samsung Galaxy s3 will get a huge cut on the price. I think :D
kitkat supports 512mb ram. bullshit reason samsung. you could atleast state the real reason why
It would be easier to instal CM11, it has KitKat and it runs better than touchwizz :)
