Thats not like Samsung Their unbranded software is usually last by several months

Check on my Branded Three S4 and no updates. Sadly Android is inconsistent for updates and Samsung and other market leaders should be issuing Kit Kat 4.4 instead!

Been using some stable custom rom builds of 4.3 on my original Galaxy note for ages now. Really amazes me that developers can make it work much faster than huge companies.

Out on Vodafone? That is a shock! They're one of my two networks and they're usually terrible with updates for their branded phones.

I messaged 3 through their FB page and was told it's in testing and should be out soon - all very vague still.

...well when it's relesed, i hope it's got the sim update so you can enable 4G instead of waiting another month or two for another update to enable it

I got the update notification on Friday morning via my phone network (sim free S4) but chose to wait until I on wi-fi at home and it took about 30 minutes to complete.

I also have a Nexus 4 and looking forward to 4.4 in a few weeks as Samsung roll out 4.3!

Just got it, and for the first time ever it just worked the first time I looked. That makes a change!

Samsung have to include their bloat so it is over 600mb!

When I was first notified on Friday morning I did start the download over the Three network before 9am, which was pretty quick, but I decided to wait until I got home and the download speed around 6pm was noticeably slower despite being on 30mb home broadband.

The funniest thing for me is they've changed the quick shortcuts in the notification dropdown largely back to the way they used to be!! It used to show a limited amount with others hidden, then they went to insisting on showing them all, now it has gone back to letting you choose the hidden ones that you don't use again.

Make your mind up Samsung!

Expected for the S3 by the end of the year then the networks have to approve it so could be Jan February time.

Because three haven't pushed it out yet. They are currently testing it.

But Thine Wonk says he's got it and he seems to have an S4 on Three judging by what is written under his username... that's the only reason why I am asking.
I had been told by 3 it's still in testing so I didn't think the update was out yet.

My S4 is on Three but it is sim free and therefore I updated it on 1st November.

You're not missing much still being on 4.2.2 unless you play games a lot.
