No-one is forcing you to buy anything. If you don't mind the lag you get with Touchwiz and are happy with the delays then that is fine.

Don't blame Samsung for the SD card restriction, blame Google (who own Android). It was their decision to cripple the SD read/write permission because they want to force everyone to use their useless Google Drive for storage.
RE: Launchers. I use Smart Launcher Pro. By making it my default launcher instead of Touchwiz I now average around 250+Mb of free RAM, and without Touchwiz the phone is a lot faster opening apps, lockscreen, camera etc.

Did I make a mistake buying S3? :/ But there wasn't a better option at that price.. I hate the size of Grand 2. -_- And I didn't want to buy anything other than samsung, because xperia has left me dissatisfied always and nexus, i dislike how they do not have a good ui like timescape/touchwiz(I know it makes the performance worse but UI's are my obsessions)

Is that the case with all kitkat updated phones unable to move files?

1. none of the archive version of Adobe flash work in 4.4.2
2. Write restrictions for security reasons have been put on the SD CAD slot. (no more move,past,rename and so on of you files from download apps.) And if you Google the problem on the note SIII you would see there is a good chance that restriction would also affect the default file manager.
are you really willing to upgrade knowing those facts?
(keep in mind the brand new S5 has kitkat and has the same UI lag/stutter as the SIII on 4.3.)

I agree that kitkat won't make the S3 faster.
But there's a good chance it will fix all the bugs which were seen in 4.3 JB, right?
Things like battery drain, a few second wait before the screen shows up after unlocking, probs with the music player/wifi etc.??
I haven't updated my s3 from 4.1.2 yet because almost everyone who updated wasn't happy!

Hi im using a thaird party data cable coz original one was damaged now when I charge phone battry temp get heated to 43c and charge very fast is there any Problem in it?
Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 will get kitkat update without Samsung knox and Samsung Wallet since both are ram consuming. As Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 has only 1 GB RAM, kitkat won't run. To avoid Samsung will be seeding kitkat by removing these two new features which are present in Galaxy S4, Note 3 and Note 2.
I had sent an email to Samsunt day before yesterday requesting to roll out Android Kitkat update for Galaxy S3 in India.
I got reply as " Our R&D are in process of developing the same, soon it will be launched in India for our esteemed customers".
It means that kitkat update for Galaxy S3 in work and will be available soon in India.

The S5 has KK, more ram, faster cpu & gpu. And it has the same lag /stutter issues as the SIII. and after reading the article at the link below I saw that the workaround is exactly the same as what Freefaller has given in the past to deal with the problem on the SIII
Added to which kk handicapped the SD card slot in phones that upgraded to it. So why would SIII owners want that.
