Do not upgrade to kitkat.
Here are the shameless limitations (using third party apps like x-plore, es file manager etc) :
> You cannot copy / move any file or folder from phone memory to the memory card.
> You cannot copy / move any file or folder within the memory card.
> You cannot create new file or folder in the memory card.
> You cannot delete any file in the memory card.
Note : I am not talking about the default in built my files app.
If you do not believe, install x-plore app in a phone running android 4.4 or later. Then copy a file from phone memory (displayed as /sdcard) to the memory card (displayed as /storage/extSdCard) and see. Also try to create a folder in the /storage/extSdCard and see.
Then you will come to know.
Its pathetic to see people still running behind rumours of a possible update to KitKat.
Truth to be told, Samsung has confirmed there is no kitkat update, although there maybe an update to rectify the problems faced currently.

I heard also the same of peoples phones not working too well, and also heard that the Samsung smart dock does not work on 4.3. So as I use the S.S.D then I don't wish to update for that reason as well. It is possible that there are other reasons why the S.S.D hasn't worked on users that updated to 4.3, but the dock itself has a lot of controversy over it not working for some users, but does for others.

saddam, 29 May 2014I love my galaxy s3 but I am waiting for kitkat update.I'm sorry, but have you been away from planet EARTH? Samsung has announced OFFICIALLY a few weeks ago that the S3 won't be getting the kitkat update... Sorry!
Ravi, 29 May 2014What is the game reviews on galaxy s3 and what types of games are support on s3 ?? Plz tell me... moreloads of big games work well on sgs 3. like real racing 3, rr2, A7, A8, need for speed wanted, modern combat 4 , mc3, (mc5 when it comes out). Nova 3 and shadowgun and many many more. As the sgs3 was and is very popular then the developers have made likely all games work. See google play online for examples.
i've only just started using my sgs3 with the web on facebook. Is there anyway to be able to see the txt we write. As soon as i tap the comment area then my onscreen keyboard takes over the space so i cannot see at all what i am typing. This happens in both mobile and desktop views, and unless i have it on the tv with the samsung smart dock then it is impossible to use fb in the normal browser.

You have 'Multi window' turned on. There are three ways to turn it OFF.
1) To turn it off temporarily hold down the BACK button on the Home screen for a couple of seconds. You can turn it back on the same way.
2) To turn it off permanently pull the notification bar down and scroll to the right and turn off 'Multi window'.
3) The long way round is to goto Settings/My device/Display/Multi window and untick it.

People struggling with the battery life.. Here's something for you: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2357417
Most of these tricks require root, but the result is well worth it.
People have managed to get 4-5 days of usage from their battery, some have even reported over 7 days. Good luck! :)
