    Default Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300 - 4.3 in the UK

    All I've seen available is U.S version's coming soon, but no news on the international versions. Does anybody know when 4.3 will be available in the UK?

    I've just updated mine too. It's still the old clock & weather widget. Will that not get the S4 one?

    I'm now having trouble with kies, it says my device isn't supported ever since I updated to 4.3. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    How's the battery life after upgrading to 4.3? any major problems aside for the one you've posted? The update hasn't reached my region yet so it would be nice to know if its all safe to upgrade to 4.3.

    Can you tell me what version of the phone you are running. Is it a carrier specific or unlocked version? I've got the unlocked UK version but really don't want to upgrade till I'm sure it's not going to screw up my phone!

    I wouldn't upgrade to this version just yet it seems like a beta. A lot of things are not right with it.

    Avoid the update.
    I'm in the UK and got the OTA update to 4.3 and it's ruined the phone
    As you can see from the Vodafone forum link below.
    https://community.vodafone.ie/t5/Sam...es/td-p/133270
    It's a common problem to many. It has made my phone next to useless.
    DO NOT UPDATE, I REPEAT, DO NOT UPDATE.

    Thanks for this, I have resisted the temptation after reading a lot of horror stories, although I'm not sure If it's just a Vodafone problem or affecting all S3 models
