Samsung aborts Android 4.3 update for Galaxy S III

Recently,Samsung released the Android 4.3 update for their Galaxy S3 which was aimed to provide a number of new features like support for Galaxy Gear watch and many more,but as turns out,its not very pleasant for its users.After the update release,the users who updated to the new firmware started facing problems like hanging of phone ,crashing ,and terrible performance while multitasking,whose root cause seems to be its poor ROM manager.Some user also complained about fast battery drainage.

Galaxy S3 4.3 update aborted

Android 4.3 update for Samsung Galaxy S3 is aborted

Consequently, Samsung UK has officially aborted the update on temporary basis by saying the following:

As we are currently investigating the reported issues with Galaxy S3 4.3 Jelly Bean update, the upgrading service has been temporarily suspended. We are committed to providing customers with the best possible mobile experience, and will ensure to resume the upgrading service at the earliest possibility

Ergo,the update has been barred from Kies and OTA service is also stopped.The Galaxy S3 users are quite disappointed from such failure from Samsung as they were eagerly waiting for this update since its previous official firmware Android 4.1 in 2012.We hope samsung will resolve this issue as soon as possible and will come up with a new flawless update.

  1. sad news,i was waiting for this update for a long time?

  2. samsung sucks big time

  3. I like games like Halo and Gears of War.
    What is the best ‘fit’ game? Like Wii Fit or something like that.

  4. I am using now is galaxy tab 3 3G i want to change my phone in galaxy s III… then i remembered that galaxy gear never miss a call and text when it ia compatible to your phone.. my wrist watch now is swatch, i want to change it cause i’m sick of it now. I want to exchange it in galaxy gear..

    I want galaxy s III cause i cant use outdoors my tab 3 properly and i always bring a shoulder bag to put it in there.

  5. So my school doesn’t allow electronics, majorly cellphones. But the Samsung Gear is a watch/phone. But they allow watches. So, will they take my Gear? Or will their heads explode in confusion?

    I just got a Tmobile galaxy s4. I didn’t really feel like waiting for the galaxy note 3 cuz I had a crappy phone. Don’t get me wrong, I love my gs4 but after seeing the note 3, I really liked some of the features. If the features of the galaxy note 3 came to the gs4 such as video in group play, my magazine, galaxy gear compatibility and a smoother UI I wouldn’t really feel as bad for not waiting. So do u think it will get some of the features of the note 3 and when? (Please only answer if you know a lot about phones)
