Re: Latest Android for Indian Galaxy S3?

India didn't get the 4.3 update for the GS3.
It's still on 4.1.2
Samsung started the roll out of the 4.3 update but suspended it after people started complaining that there were a lot of issues like random device freezing and wake-up lag, as well as stuttering music playback and battery drain.

Re: Latest Android for Indian Galaxy S3?

Will India get the 4.3 update in the future at all or not? With a low end device like Grand getting 4.2.2, its very sad that s3 is still on 4.1.2

Re: Latest Android for Indian Galaxy S3?

Didn't there were reports of s3 getting 4.3 again?

Yup ..International Samsung Galaxy S III resumes update to Android 4.3

no idea about the indian version though. btw OP, did you have nexus 5? think I saw you posting on nexus 5 related threads... unless you have s3 as your 2nd phone.

Yup already have it. Using S3 as secondary phone

That 4.3 update for S3 was released for Europe. When will we get it here in India?

Can we update S3 through Samsung Kies?

Yes but I would suggest you to wait for the official release. The 4.3 ROM they released earlier had issues and that's why Samsung stopped the roll out.
BTW they have resumed the 4.3 update roll out but it's still pending for India.
Keep checking Sammobile for the official release. Wait for the OTA or do it manually via Odin.

Updated my S3. Minor changes in lock screen, settings, notifications. Contacts seem to load faster. Overall, phone feels faster.

RAM usage seems to be the same. But, I dont worry about RAM usage, I just clear up the cache and couple of junk files now and then. Never had a problem with RAM. I suppose the Android system is supposed to manage that.
As mentioned before, overall speed has increased.

Saw the following problems:
- My phone never has hanged before. After the update, it has hanged two times (in a couple of days)
- Calls seem to be taking a hell lot more of battery life. Earlier, with a lot of calls, probably 1 hour of internet, some reading and games, it used to easily go for 24 hours. Now if I make a lot of calls, battery is lasting only for 12 hours. Not very happy about that. Planning to downgrade if that is possible.

Re: Latest Android for Indian Galaxy S3?

Downgrading did not seem to easy
Got fed up of the battery drain issues!! . Couple of calls and bam, down by 20% more.
So I rooted my phone. Objective was to freeze all samsung bloatware using Titanium Backup and install Droidwall to control internet access.
Little by little, I have frozen a lot of (unwanted) samsung junk and things are slowly seeming to improve.
Now I am getting close to 24 hours on a single charge with moderate usage.
Using tasker, Mobile data is switched on/off intermittently and flight mode is enabled from 12-6 in the night (secure settings needed)
