Touchwiz is a piece of schiit! The worst user interface in the history of mankind!
Sammy if you can't make good user interface then you should learn from HTC's Sense, Sony's Xperia or Google Stock Android or even Apple's iOS!
After fire the head of Design,next Sammy must fire the head of Software!!!!!!!
it's just samsung's BS. new motorola E has only 1GB or RAM and comes with kitkat as do plenty of other devices. S3 owners don't want to upgrade to s4 (the phone has lot's of overheating problems ) or S5 ( wtf do i need a heart rate monitor or a finger scaner ) so now they figured they would force them to upgrade bcz of kitkat.
Again Samsung is showing its class. If moto G with a dualcore proc and 1gb ram can run kitkat then why not s3? Apple iPhone 4 with 800mgz SINGLE CORE cpu and 512mb ram is getting latest iOS 7.1.1 update. Shame on you Sammy.
Anonymous, 09 May 2014And 4.4 and touchwiz have both trimmed down. So it's bs. But not because of touchwiz itself ... moreWrong. touch Wizard UI has NOT slimmed down. it's gotten progressively larger as they've packed more and more features and functions into the UI. Research it and quit spreading FUD.
techfreak., 10 May 2014this is the reason why many ppl prefer apple devices bcauz they update even 4 year old devices... moreYeah your right Face Palm!
Reason why apple do that is to make the those devices brittle and not working properly.
then people who update the devices has no choice but to buy and upgrade there handset..
Good move by apple
Poor for Apple fanboys..
techfreak., 10 May 2014this is the reason why many ppl prefer apple devices bcauz they update even 4 year old devices... moresame BS you posted on the other thread I see. apple does not, and never has provided updates to 4 year old iphones. in fact, they have discontinued support on old models in less than 3 years.
techfreak., 10 May 2014this is the reason why many ppl prefer apple devices bcauz they update even 4 year old devices... moreThat's wen ur iphone gets slower and people run helter skelter to downgrade it :p
Samsung employ people to read all these posts on forums and will soon realise that their announcement NOT to update the S3 to KK is a PR disaster. I wouldn't be surprised to see a future statement from them announcing that they are 'Now able to release KitKat OS on the Galaxy S3 model'.
This is pathetic news considering s3 is the main reason for samsung's success in the mobile industry.It was a stepping stone which looks like it will be buried soon and forgotten.
They should re-consider their strategy.
Alot of customers will be disgruntled.
techfreak., 10 May 2014then why does moto g is enjoying kitkat.......its time to move for Sam boys because google ann... moreI agree , KitKat was announced for " all " devices
needing minimum RAM of 512 .
I have had 5 Samsung devices and am getting more and more disappointed... more and more people are leaving Samsung due to bloatware etc . Seriously Samsung , what gives ?
this is the reason why many ppl prefer apple devices bcauz they update even 4 year old devices like iphone 4
then why does moto g is enjoying kitkat.......its time to move for Sam boys because google announced kitkat is optimized for low end devices even with 512mb ram
They could release version just/only for S3 i S3 mini models, ... c'mon
As much as I loved S3, I wont EVER buy any Samsung product again. Ill also make sure that no one around me ever does as well.
Samsung.... you will be another Nokia very soon!
HTC... here I come :)
