am feeling very glade that my s3 korian version now updated to 4.4.4 updated only though wifi............
I got 4.4.4 from Bangladesh. just out your sim card from device and restart. connect wifi and go setting > about device > update. notice that my device is not rooted. it's may easy to get update from any country. but not have visual change 4.3.3 between 4.4.4.
I have Galaxy S3 SHV-E210S here in the Philippines, and I can't get H+ and LTE network. Only 3G/G network :( Maybe the frequency here explains this. Hehe.

Yes. Samsung should stop releasing 2 phones every week and concentrate more on their current and former flagships. Keep these on the market and in manufacturing and update them properly.
But unfortunately the shitheads at Samsung don't have common sense and don't read these comments.

...especially the S3 32GB version.
The thing is that only the S4 has call-recording possible without rooting/hacking or tampering at all. Just get an app and it works. Tested on GT-I9515 (AKA the S4 Value Edition). Both the S3 and S5 require tampering with the device and root-access.
Also the S4 has currently the best price/performance ratio and is better value today.

Why do want these updates anyway. Storage support was best on S3 with 4.1.2 and all modern apps run from ICS upwards so...
I've got a S4 VE (GT-I9515) and it sucks. It shuts down by itself every day (even with a full just charged battery). It's 16GB storage only has 9GB left which is ridiculous! The "move to SD" option doesn't move the entire app to SD. Samssung promised 16/32/64GB versions but so far only the 16GB ones are being sold! WTF!
It's a shame.
I9305 it's powerful and can get KitKat and future updates.
You can get it unofficially, thanks to some porting...

Same here. I wanted a new phone this year but after Samsung let us S3 owners down I decided 'never again', so I went for the Nexus 5. I will never touch another Samsung phone again!
