hi friends, pls help me
after updating my s3, when i switched on, the welcome note SAMSUNG window came and stucked. again i remove the battery and switched on again the first window SAMSUNG came and stuck there. 4,5 times i repeated the same but there was no use. the same thing is happening again and again. now am not able to use my s3. friends please suggest what to do to use my s3 again.
Using S3, 21 Feb 2014After reading this news... It's my last Samsung mobile... Definitely I will go for Nokia or Apple.. O and add Nokia to that list too
when thay stared selling there first batch of lumina phone it was about a month or 2 before the switch to 8. You think they didn't know Microsoft was going to stop supporting 7 that they still rush to put on the phone to get them out just before before 7 support was abandoned?
If you going to buy a phone for what the future holds and not for what it can do at the time you got it, then I say no brand is good.

what do you call the S version of every iPhone ever made if not a screw you who has the one that came out right before the S.
you think when the iPhone 3,4,5 was being made they didn't already have the hardware for the S models. ...
then the faulty hardware problem like the antenna. They new it had a problem from the very first devic and still it wad put on the shelf knowing software updates couldn't fix that.
Microsoft did it too, to all there windows mobile OS users when they switched to windows phone 7. And yet again because not a person with a windows phone 7 got an upgrade to windows phone 8 that came out 1 year later. But short memory span people never remember any of this.

Ask your self when is Samsung promising 4.4 for there other phones?
Then ask your self how long in day it takes them to develop a rom based on past history.
Then take into consideration that they are still working on 4.3 for SIII in some regions. My provider hasn't got it as yet. And the Rom i switch to some time back, that provider only got 4.3 this week.
now knowing they still have to do 4.3 for some providers and the deadline for 4.4. Is it realistic to expect 4.4. Or would logic say the time would be better spent on an upcoming version. Just as was done with 4.2

do you remember the SIII didn't get 4.2.
If we went with your logic then no one should have 4.3 now. If you don't get 4.4 so what it's been out on the Google phone so long that every one should know a next version is right around the corner. What's the point to start work on 4.4 now? By the time any one get it Google would have moved on or near to the next version.
Rahulsgs3, 20 Feb 2014Frinds samsung decided to stop updateing s3... no they just got greedy.. they want all s3 users to go and buy s5 dats how they want to earn money form all of u and dat wat they will do for s5 customers next year when they release s6...given the greedy flow of samsung its not far even s4 will be bricked shortly
even though most in this forum dont support apple.. i have an s3 and nexus 7 and lumia 520.. the worst hit is my s3 the way they are treating its end users... worst customer care worst service centers bloody worst updates and now this they get greedy and kill your device.. apple is better than such shameless samsung brand in terms of update.. as even 2010 phone products of apple are getting recent updates and support.. shameless samsung look and learn.. cant innovate anythg just gets greedy and blames apple at its ad...
samsung just killed international s3.. no kitkat 4.4 update for it... now it joins the club of abondoned flagship members.. its not even 2 years... and then same will be for s4 and who knows s5 with its 100 variants may not get update at all.. the only point of view for samsung is they care for u until u buy their product and after that you can go to hell... their mission is successful... whereas apple still updates even its 2010 products.. even though i dont like their products looking the way amsung is treatin g its customers one day its evident all potential buyers of new flagships shelling out so huge amount on it will land in same situation shortly.. then s6 s7 s8 s9 s10... and so on...

Seems like this mobile is not going to get Android 4.4.2/4.4 :p !! Samsung seriously? no wonder people say their smartphones are good.
irfanifse, 20 Feb 2014Can u briefly tell me abt the 3rd point, u have mentioned we can turn off apps which are waste... moreI’ll explain with 1 example that maybe or may not be affecting you.
You start your phone and right away “s suggest" is running, updating, using memory, and your data plan and like a bad habit it’s very hard to stop it. Well not any more in 3.4.
Got to settings>more>application manager>scroll across to “ALL”>find “S Suggest” and tap it>tap on “turn off”
Just like that it’s gone from your running apps, the “ALL” list, your auto start up list and your all apps locker/menu. Sweet!
If you ever need it back and I don’t know why you would. Lol
Just go to settings>more>application manager>scroll across to “TURNED OFF”
Everything you turn off is listed there to tap and turn back on.
