Sprint's Samsung Galaxy S III gets KitKat update

The new software version is L710VPUCND8 and Sprint says that it will be sent out in stages. That means that if you haven't received the update by this morning, don't fret. It will come. Also, to save your precious data allowance, you should be on a Wi-Fi connection when you download and install the update. And, you should have your battery charged to at least 50%.
If you're a Sprint customer with the Samsung Galaxy S III, be on the look out for this OTA update. Or, you can try to coax it out of your device by going to Settings > System Update > Update Samsung Software and Check for Software Updates.

This is why Samsung is better than any other Android OEM. DO HTC's, Sony's or LG'S 2012 flagships even have Android 4.3, let alone KitKat They don't bother about their older phones. That's why they struggle in the Android market.

The HTC Droid DNA already got KitKat and it is a 2012 device, with that being said the One X was dropped due to Nvidia failing to provide drivers, Samsung is giving great support to their users, let's hope this update is bug free unlike the 4.3 one tho.

Nexus 4 does have Kitkat, but you may not count it though. It's a Nexus afterall. Also Droid DNA and HTC Butterfly do have 4.4.2. Samsung and HTC: Few Updates Other OEM: No updates Cheers
