    Default T-Mobile Galaxy S3 finally getting Android 4.3, should I update?

    Hello community,

    Just checked with my phone today, and I am getting an update to Android 4.3 on my T-Mobile Galaxy S3. It sounds nice, but I have been hundreds and thousands of articles saying about battery issues, Ram issues, and etc.... about the Android 4.3 update on the Galaxy S3. Should I update, or should I hold on to it?

    And umm, for those of you who owns the T-Mobile Galaxy S3 (SGH-T999, not SGH-T999L), tell how if its working properly if you have Android 4.3 installed. Thanks.

    Since the U.S. version of the phone has more memory than the International version it's POSSIBLE that it may not have the same problems with the 4.3 update.

    With that said, I personally wouldn't accept it until there's more data available. YMMV.

    I updated my S3, taking the risk of all those problems. It turns out to be well though, I don't see any problems with it. Although The move-to-SD card feature doesn't really work for me though.

    +1 I almost never volunteer to be a lab rat.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Got the update waiting to be installed. Still debating. It's going to change the whole look of the OS

    Just updated and some of my installed applications are gone. SwiftKey and Nova are what I noticed so far. I'm wondering if they are still taking up space..
