I know! S3 is such an amazing phone that it us holding back sales of S4 and newer products.. thats why samsung is rumored to not update s3 . But some websites and people on here said that 1gb ram is insuffucient and i dont agree yi yhat...
A funny thing also happened when i went to the mobile store to purchase s3 last week, the salesman spent half an hour trying to convince me for the cheaper grand 2 with "better specs" acc to him.. i hated the size of grand 2 and stayed firm with buying s3..
My galaxy s3 is updated to 4.3 ,,,, love it ,,, much improvement in battery timing

Samsung's touchviz occupies a great deal of ram. That is why 1gb ram is an issue.
I have lte 2gb ram version and it is going to get kitkat soon in'shaa'Allah. :)
Aki, 22 Feb 2014Also, Kitkat was planned to work "comfortably" on devices with as low as 512MB RAM.

The S3 is holding back the sale of newer Samsung products. S3 delivered on its promise and from a business stand point it has to make way for S5. But I have a question for Samsung. Why not increase sales on added value of new technology rather than suppressing the updates that keep the older phones going?
Kamalesh, 22 Feb 2014Atleast we r getting kitkat in india from 20th march.which source your qouting from??? sure about it???
