Freefaller™, 13 Nov 2013It appears that Samsung have stopped the v4.3 update for the S3 due to the number of complaint... moreYup. Unfortunately Samsung did pulled the 4.3 update. Very shame on you Samsung. Atleast learn from ur mistakes and release the stable free update.
Freefaller™, 13 Nov 2013It appears that Samsung have stopped the v4.3 update for the S3 due to the number of complaint... moreMy NEXUS 7 running JB4.3, I don't have problem. Maybe S3 have hardware problem. By the way Freefaller™ and Anthony, have you noticed that GSMarena hiring talent person. You guys should apply
It appears that Samsung have stopped the v4.3 update for the S3 due to the number of complaints about it:
If this is true then it is an embarrassing climbdown for Samsung.
Can anyone confirm the rumour?
stumpy, 12 Nov 2013Got my 4.3 yesterday 11/11/13. stick with 4.2 :/ @ stumpy
"I told you so!"
after upgrading my phone to 4.3 it is found to be slow, battery drained more quickly and hanged several times.
Still waiting for 4.3 update on my UK carrier. Would be nice to see 4.4 eventually come this way, especially with it being flaunted as designed to run well - even on phones with 512mb ram (half that of the S3). May involve waiting forever...?
I still don't understand why many websites like pocketnow, even GSMARENA has not broadcasted this issue about ridiculous 4.3 update by Samsung. We've seen Apple IOS6 problems has been headlined by many websites so why not post these issues. I mean everyone in the world was very disappointed with this stupid update for galaxy S3. Please post this issue as this will add pressure and wake-up call to Samsung developers for releasing the bugfix 4.3 update soon.
Samsung have released v4.3 for the UK users. Read the complaints first on GSMArena's Home Page before you start crying 'When is 4.3 coming to ........?'. The update is a complete mess; you update at your own risk! Stay on v4.1.2
I know that a lot of you will ignore this warning, and you have the right to do whatever you wish with your own phone; but when you start complaining about the mess it has made to your phone then I will be posting the reply "I told you so!" to a lot of people.
My S3 is staying on v4.1.2
Ravi, 11 Nov 2013Over the last few weeks Samsung has been slowly rolling out the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update ... moregot software up date and my s3 is acting up will be going back to my previous Nokia phone
Sony Xperia SP is faster and more efficient than Galaxy S3. My Xperia SP scored 20772 points on ANTUTU benchmark were as Galaxy S3 only got 17900 point. I'm saying SP more efficient because it beats S3 even SP is just a duel core, thanks to the Snapdragon S4 pro chipset. The phone is butter smooth to use with no nonsense battery drain problems. Those who are confused between SP & S3, SP is the obvious choice.
I am currently using the same phone. However, it cannot be switched on and the light at the back is still on even when i remove and put the battery again. What can be the problem
Srinivas Suravarapu, 11 Nov 2013My Galaxy s3 India Had just got the 4.3 update and its size is 409.31Mb guys I think this update version 4.2 not 4.3
user, 11 Nov 2013Is samsung galaxy s3 is up gradable to kitkat os. M asking this question why because it has on... moreIts 50-50 at the moment, Looking at the way Samsung has released 4.3 update for S3 with very few S4 features and laggy OS i don't we'll get 4.4. All other brands like Sony,Htc and LG has already promised 4.4 update schedule and Still selfish Samsung doesn't. I think they will provide 4.4 after releasing Galaxy S5, so even though they've decided to provide update for S3 it will be in the last quarter of 2014.
