question about RAM on this phone. - If I long press menu button and bottom left pie chart and click on RAM at top it says RAM status 737MB/831MB - why 831MB and not 1024mb (1gb) of ram? - and also does that mean I have 737MB available out of 831MB? or does it mean I am using 737MB out of 831MB? - thanks.
good phone - takes very good pictures as well, i find a bit laggy still in places even though quad core and have frozen most of the bloateware and clear caches

'If it ain't broke then don't fix it'.
But if it bothers you that much then just download the latest version, put it on your external SD card, and use 'My Files' to install it.

From reading your last post and previous others it has struck me that you are frightened of trying anything out for yourself.
Install the keyboards I mentioned, try them out, and if you don't like them uninstall them. You won't hurt your phone by trying.
I have purchased s3 in may 2014.First 3-4 months its working fine.But after some times without using any app my battery percentage reducing like crazy.at night 11 if my battery percentage is 40%-50% then at morning 7-8 the phone is switched off due to 0% battery.I didn't know the reason why that much battery drain while in stand by mode.Still im facing the same issue.Now for a single day i have charge my phone 2 times to 90% approx.

Samsung should give updates to S3 .............. Still S3 best selling phone in market............. Samsung should think again............ Don't launch phone every day.....Care for old models like Note 2, S3, Grand 2............ Play mind game :)

KNOX was never on the S3! Why do you want it for? Do you even know what it is? Why would you want spyware on your phone?
You are one of those who think 'Oooh, I'm missing something. I want it , I want it' without having any idea of what it is.

Thanks for the tip but I didn't keep the S4 that long. KNOX should have been a downloadable app from the Samsung app site, not forced onto consumers without any way of uninstalling it.

I only heard of it as i watched a documentary, showing how at first it was set up with total security/freedom to browse wherever etc. However very quickly the criminal world found out & big business has been taking place. I would like to think in that case folks are able to be caught, though i doubt it. Its available on android under orweb. But is slow apparently
