Android 4.3 coming to Samsung Galaxy S III and S4 in October

Of course, maybe it's just us, but it feels like the turnaround has been a bit quicker for Samsung this time around; and, we can't help but wonder if that has anything to do with Samsung being part of the Google Edition program. Perhaps the company has learned better ways to update faster? We'll have to wait and see how a more major upgrade like Android 4.4 KitKat goes before truly saying one way or the other.

You had to go ahead and make me pull out this article. It looks like HTC is on top for update time. http://www.phonearena.com/news

LMAO!! An article from Dec 2012??? Things have changed dramatically since then buddy. Samsung upgraded the Galaxy S2 and Note 1 to JB, brought the Galaxy S4 with 4.2.2 out the box, while updating a few other phones and tablets to 4.2.2, and now they are also bringing 4.3 to the GS4, GS3 and Note 2. They are looking far better than HTC, can you name me one 2011 HTC that got an official JB update?

Welp, I'm on Verizon. I guess I should add half a year to October and mark the calendar before I forget. It's going to be a while...

Verizon is a double edged sword.

Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T all work pretty damn good in Chicago. AT&T has the fastest LTE followed by T-Mobile then Verizon. And I didn't even bother to mention Sprint because they just suck.. Period. T-Mobile SIII and S4 should be updated by November, or now if you decide to root.

I think when people mean better coverage when speaking of Verizon, they mean overall. Obviously they may not be the best everywhere, but overall they have a larger footprint than the other carriers. In the state I live in, both Sprint and T-Mobile have little to no footprint. They say AT&T has some of the best coverage here compared to their other states, but it is pretty spotty in comparison to Verizon. I wish it wasn't the case as it'd be nice to have an option other than Verizon.

If they skip 4.3 we will be waiting till December at least for an update. Kit kat not expected till Oct/Nov time add then that it will take a couple of months to optimise tw,get it through carrier testing etc we will b waiting forever. They already skipped 4.2 to give us 4.3, it doesn't make sense to skip 4.3 especially when kitkat hadn't even been released yet.
