i recommend all samsung s3 owners to stay with 4.1.2. its better than 4.3 but if you like to try 4.3 please please do full titanium backup before updating.

Allen the I.T Guy from the Philippines. Hey Samsung! Where is the 4.3 Update eh? I've been waiting for Months already. Don't let us down. I've read comments online saying that the 4.3 Update ruined some users phones. Come on you guys, so far APPLE beats SAMSUNG in terms of updates.

Pros
* You can move apps to the SD card
* The haptic feedback vibration issue has been resolved
* The keyboard is better and the sounds more pleasing
* Copy, paste and select all options are clearer.
* It's easier to select smaller text now
* 'Permissions' in apps show more detail
* Private internet browsing is shaded grey.
* The settings menu is more organised
* Menu transitions are smoother in areas that weren't as smooth before - i.e. scrolling through widgets. However, other areas now lag more.

Cons
* The battery drains quickly
* Gallery is unusable now - thumbnails are huge and can't be changed. Any more than 100 photos and scrolling through them takes forever. There are no sorting options.
* It takes ages to charge
* Adobe Flash (which I enabled) crashes the internet
* The revamped calculator app is ugly
* The clock widgets aren't as attractive
* In video player, the videos are no longer animated.
* The bar at the top is no longer shaded, which looks like a design flaw in the app tray.
