Gsmarena should update the galaxy S3 specifications and remove the line "Planned upgrade to v4.4.2 Kitkat".
It could be absolutely misleading for people who might buy thinking they 'll get a kitkat update on their s3 in the future, which is not going to happen.
according to gsmarena this unit and the s3 mini won't be getting any kitkat update. go ahead to the news section if you want. if you have questions talk to gsmarena team or any of samsumg officials they interviewed.
u hve to root it for cyanmogen mode , 4.3 is gud enough but if samsung wil be fix all the bugs on it and battery drain problem
ZuQu, 09 May 2014Thank you Anthony ! There you got the reply from Anthony, as I haven't used any other mobile apart from s3 so I'm not sure. But in my opinion I guess there is another mobile that you have to check out.
I haven't used it but critcs seem to be loving the phone and has got a decent spec.
minku12, 08 May 2014so sad s3 dnt getting kitkat, atleast samsung can fix bugs on s3, 4.3 and battery drain problemWhat about cyanmogen mode ??
Anthony, 09 May 2014There is no news and there will be no news. Did you see a posting on Samsung page that the S &... moreThere was news. but looks like that he does not know nor do u obviously, that Samsung confirmed that s3 and s3 mini (the 3g ones) are not getting the kitkat update.
A5, 09 May 2014All these news just rumours. So continue enjoying s3. Until official release there is no news ... moreThere is no news and there will be no news. Did you see a posting on Samsung page that the S & SII were no longer getting updates?
Do you even remember when last the SII got an update?
Do you know how far from lunch date it was when the SII got it last update?
Learn from history, follow patterns. The SII got no updates in the lifetime of the S4. So you keep dreaming that the SIII I9300 will get updated in the lifetime of the S5. And keep believing that no news directly from Samsung is a good sign. LOL
It's the end of the road of samsung s3 and its biggest history and brought good name to them,and samsung forced samsung s3 to commit suicide.atleast you should have updated to 4.4 update and made to end s3.Hate you samsung i will never ever buy samsung smart phones in future.
plz guys give me an honest answer galaxy s3 international version quad core vs lumia 1320?

ZuQu, 08 May 2014thank you for your suggestion .. can you give me other great smartphone with low price like s3... moreAfter using the SIII i9300 as my personal phone for 2 years now.
If I had to buy an Android phone for a friend in the SIII price range.
My list would be in the order below.
1. HTC ONE X+
2. LG NEXUS 4 16gb version
3. ONE X
4. Samsung SIII (it would have been 3rd if it didn’t have the Touch Wizz a.k.a (Touch Piss) U.I.
5. Motorola Moto G 16GB (this is on the list because it’s real cheap and still manages not to be total crap.)
Freefaller™, 08 May 2014@ A5 Now YOU'RE the one spreading rumours. Prove what you are saying. Show us the link that... moreRumours guys like always spread these kind of news and ask for where is proof. Don't believe these kind of news users. Samsung never told it had stopped updating s3..a bit of pdf sheets papers leaked from outside source s3 is not in updating list. If u get the update in future u throw your phone in trash bin runway.
