sirisiri8882007, 21 Feb 2014its nothing like they are skipping 4.4 to upgrade to future version this is not 4.2 kinda stor... moreThe galaxy grand was not to long upgraded to 4.2
They were not on the 4.3 list but are on the 4.4 list.
It's not the fist time a Samsung model did a version skip and it not going to be the last.
so don't believe 4.3 is the last update for the SIII unless Samsung them self comes out and says so.

It's not like 4.4 is going to be the last android version that is going to be made by Google. But that fact is SIII is still geting updated to 3.4 in some regions. So don't expect a new version until that is completed. and because of that the SIII is missing the time line for 4.4 people are reading to much into that 4.4 update list, that was never said/confirmed.

S3 z stil good smartphone n ve a long way to go
i updated my phone's os to 4.3.
there is much usage of ram as compared to previous os version and hence a little bit slower processing of the fone.
cobby1, 21 Feb 2014I move from Samsung to apple al bcoz of update...al iPhone get update the same day release...
... moreDo you guys under that apple only have 1 phone. Make that 2 with the C line now. And they develop and make there own OS.
How may lines samung has? The S class is just one and each model has different versions. And they don't make the OS, they have to get that when Google is finished developing it before they can start work on all the various version by region and class.
so be real with your expectations
sirisiri8882007, 21 Feb 2014its a better idea...nexus is a safe option atleast u get updates on time and no crappy bloatwaresFist thing you said with sense
No update to 4.3 in kenya!!
Samsung whats happening and we are moving to 4.4?

samsung stops updating s3 coz s3 is still darkhorse in market...available in very low price..and still very much fast than other phone...s4 is not much upgrade from s3 in speed view... and s5 is in the way to releas...so samsung has to decide for s3 .. should stop s3 updating or stop manufacturing.....but s3 is very dominating device still in market.
Any one can please help me to find out the link where my samsung account synchronize Calendar, contact and others. I will be very grateful. And I need a repeating Task feature. How can I do so?

Anthony, 21 Feb 2014O and add Nokia to that list too when thay stared selling there first batch of lumina phone ... moreand for ur comments about nokia... its far better than samsung.. two year old lumia 520 is still getting updated to windows 8.1... now thats called product support to end users.. u may give 100 reasons comparing samsung to other OEM's... but in terms of support samsung is worst than any Oem's at present...
Anthony, 21 Feb 2014Yo apple is the king of screw over. what do you call the S version of every iPhone ever made ... moreatleast compared to samsung apple updates its devices in time... and given the fact samsung hiccuped so many times with its 4.3 update with bugs... making s3 users wait for it in vain skipping 4.2... then even they are no better than any oem's
Anthony, 21 Feb 2014.3 to .4 is not a major update. 5.0 is the major update.
point something in any OS is just a... morewoww u sound like a samsung employee
4.3 to 4.4 is a major update.. when they cant give what is already available then on wat basis u r telling they will be thinking of next version of updates... and given the fact of time to build custom rom kitkat was released way back last yr end.. when they hav time to build it for grand and other mid range devices then bloody hell they should do it for s3 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.
sirisiri8882007, 20 Feb 2014even though most in this forum dont support apple.. i have an s3 and nexus 7 and lumia 520.. ... moreYo apple is the king of screw over.
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.
