The Samsung Galaxy S3 is getting on a bit in terms of the smartphone market that moves forward at an incredible pace, but the handset can still be purchased from a number of retailers around the world. Owners of the device have been beset by problems over the last few months, and the Galaxy S3 is crying out for the Android 4.4 update as 4.3 fails the handset.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has received the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system but the majority of users have had with problems that continue to plague the handset. The list of problems has been growing all the time which have now been affecting our own international version of the handset.
A growing number of times now the handset just freezes momentarily, and an annoying issue that hit my device the other day is the camera app just crashing. My son was about to receive his new belt and certificate for karate after a successful grading when the camera app just closed.
Luckily I managed to open it back up to grab a quick image but didn’t have time to zoom in closer to the action. There have also been a number of other apps that keep crashing as well that include the likes of Twitter and Facebook.
Now there has been talk that the GT-9I300 version of the handset will be left on this version of Android, but more recently hopes of a Galaxy S3 Android 4.4 KitKat update have been growing. Talk before suggested that because the device only has 1GB of RAM and the fact that the Samsung TouchWiz UI takes up so much memory it would miss out.
As we reported previously though other Samsung handsets with 1GB of RAM have already been promised to receive Android 4.4 KitKat at some point in the future.
What problems have you been facing since installing Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on your Galaxy S3?
