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
I also agree with Captain Barbossa.
So much crying for the new OS but don’t 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.
everybody always want to update there mobile device to latest android version even kitkat or further more latest version because we are all greedy :p
nobody want old operating system

I can't really understand why all of you are busy whinning about KitKat here, KitKat there, KitKat high, KitKat low, KitKat etc...I'm fed up with all the cry and whinnng about KitKat. I'm not sure why all of you weren't happy with current android 4.3 JB. Fast, stable, RAM management is good (doing minor update).. . If you do want to ensure S3 will receive KitKat, go spamming at all Samsung Mobile page in FB. Make sure you do a lot of spam. Or just send a bunch of e-mail to Samsung Company. Just copy and paste, easy task.

so now from the Android recovery menu, you have to wipe the cache partition & do the factory reset to get the phone running normal again.

k, 13 Mar 2014It has come down to Rs 22-23000.I do not know why? Grand 2 and this same price these days.so dont buy the galaxy s3 phones because they all are almostly 2nd handed phones if in case you are interest in s3 then goto 2nd handed s3 phones
It has come down to Rs 22-23000.I do not know why? Grand 2 and this same price these days.
tarique, 13 Mar 2014Get s3 this best mobile.hello lucky dont go for the s3 because grand 2 is the best my rating is grand 2 - 8.2 and s3 - 8.0
and do you know now all the s3 phones are come to the old reclining s3 parts so thats why samsung reduce the price from 42k to 22k
and in future also s3 doesn't get the 4.4 update but grand 2 get the 4.4 and so on updates also
Question : My phone is still on 4.1.2, how can I update it to 4.3 ??
In software update it says "the latest updates have already been installed"
