i have s3. i updated it to 4.3. initially, i have some problems but with the passage of time i received couple of minor updates then everything settled down.
my phone is just awesome now with crispy display smooth performance.
i have 32gb version. i have installed modern combat 4, virtua tennis 4, asphalt 8, call of duty. and still have plenty of space. these games run like a charm. i love my phone.
today i read an article at drippers android app that s3 is going to be updated 4.4. though it is not confirmed so far. but chances are 80%.
samsung is just awesome man.

So much crying for the new OS but donít want to pay for ... moreVery well said, Anthony.
I seriously see NO point in updating to a newer android version, except for the sake of the feeling "I have the newest android!" :P Your phone will not become a super phone once you update it. It might be very buggy, however, like the 4.3 update turned out to be.
From my own android phones history, and from that of my friends', a phone works the best the way it was packed from the factory.
Despite people here trying to convince me for a 4.3 update, I haven't. I just love the battery life and how my phone never gets heated and how it is bug free. There's nothing I'd like to change about my 4.1.2 galaxy S3. Seriously.
what a wounderful experience...
S3 is not my mobile phone,
its my new girl friend.......
I have s3 after I update 4.3 my phone is heating when I surfing net on crome and battry drain fast but in whats app not that heat plz give me some suggestions.
No. apple will always stick to psychological effects on human minds, it's products could not compete with samsung. and when apple 6 comes, samsung will beat it and then apple 6s comes then samsung will beat it, the fact is that more and more people are gonna switch to samsung , one simple reason for that at least for me was that a samsung galaxy s4 or s5 is not gonna switch off automatically in cold weather, which i have seen my friends with iphone 4s and 5 and 5s phones suffering from the battery problem.

Ask anyone that you know personally with a phone with 4.4 on it if any archived version of flash works on 4.4.
If they say yes post the link in the HTC ONE MAX forum. Because I for one missing flash badly. Updating that phone from 4.3 to 4.4 was a regrettable mistake that you are anxious to repeat here.
There are more restrictions on 4.4 for your protection but at a cost of features that sets android apart from iOS & windows phone. 4.4
being newer doesnít necessarily make it better (e.g. I donít think windows 8 is better than windows 7), but if that is what you are hungry for, what can I say.

Just switched over from s2 to s3 after my son bought a new nexus 5 phone.The s3 is really a great looking phone and faster and smoother than the s2.I immediately installed the latest android 4.3 update and it is really giving very good battery life.After using for nearly 1 hour the battery holds at a good 70% in the evening.My s2 used to drop to less than 50% on similar usage.I don't know why a lot of people
crib about the 4.3 update but it certainly good.My son had installed cynagenmod before and it gave poor battery life.After a week I removed it installed 4.3 at Samsung service centre and eversince it has been great

So much crying for the new OS but donít want to pay for new hardware. Like if putting new clothes on duty skin is going to make anything better.
If you want your old phone to run good, clean up all the sh-it you have running on it. That would work a lot better for giving it better performance than any new OS on top the ton of carp you have install/stored on it. Kitkat in not going to clean up your crap for you. So if your phone is running like sh-it now, it will still run like sh-it after kitkat. Some of you just went from 4.1.2 to 4.3 after bitching for that update. Did that make the phone experience any better for you? What dose 4.4 have that you want so bad? Really, can any of the complainers say what they need from 4.4 that is soooooo important but not important enough to upgrade your hardware for? Clean up your phone like you clean your body and stop looking for new clothes to put on mucky skin.
