After 4.3 update...
Performance is better
Battery life is same as before
Move to sd card option now available
Transparent status bar
Lock screen is lagging a bit
Most of the ram is occupied
S4 weather widget should have been added
No heating issues at all
Overall a good upgrade

Post 4.3 Upgrade Observations:
- Overall experience is smoother and tad quicker.
- Minor UI changes
- Battery drains out in 4-5 hours now as compared to on 4.1.2 where it used to run over 24 hrs easily.
- SD Card reading error
- Phone heats up a lot on standby
I am open to suggestions from folks who may have found acceptable workarounds to resolve those issues.

From Bangalore(INDIA).Updated to jelly Bean 4.3 through kies software. If you try to update from mobile, it shows latest software already installed.
So connect your mobile to laptop/computer and update it to android 4.3.
Updated to 4.3, device is much faster and menus are like ones in S4. Everything is good, but my device heats up when I'm connected to Wifi. Anyone experiencing the same problem?
Updated yesterday. Battery also fine (24hrs +). Phone book lag is still there, comparatively less though. 5 hrs continuous "Subway Suf" with lowest brightness (started at 78% battery), battery came down to 12%.
Performance is good.
UI changes are nice.
Yet to check AT+ and Gear compatibility.
Disabled S-Voice, ChatOn, Flipboard, exchangeService, samsung app store, hangout and Play Service
4.3 runs okay but at the end of the day small usable ram is going to make the phone lag no matter the processing power i hope we get 4.4
