Freefaller™, 09 May 2014I've read the comments from users who seem shocked that the S3 wont be updated to KK. I wrote... moreTouchpiss was trimmed down on the 5S, really? So why in the hell is the dialer and contacts still taking so long to open on first start. And why is going back to the home screen still take so long to fully load? I too have moved away from Samsung to HTC. It's a last year model but it's still a hell more responsive with a UI that makes sense when it comes to using your smartphone as an actual phone. Samsung S class of phones is like the know it all kid that does everything the long way to show how much it can do but actually all it's doing is waisting precious seconds.
I've read the comments from users who seem shocked that the S3 wont be updated to KK.
I wrote on the 25/04/2014 that I thought the S3 wouldn't be updated because of the limited amount of memory left after Touchwiz has loaded all the useless apps that Samsung think we want but don't (Group Play, Paper Artist, Samsung Link, Google this... Google that etc. etc.).
The S3 could easily run KK if Samsung trimmed down Touchwiz like they have on the S5, but they seem to think that if we don't get KK we will all rush out and buy their new model (which we wont).
I was going to change my phone anyway this year and I have voted with my wallet and purchased a Nexus 5. My loyalty to Samsung has vanished, and I think a lot of other people will feel that way now.
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
AnonD-261485, 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.
AnonD-221988, 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?
