I was waiting eagerly for the Kitkat update for my xperia Z1. It got updated on March 18, 2014. But sadly after the update, the phone has many glitches. Firstly, the file commander does not work properly. Whenever I click on the file commander, a dialogue box pops up saying 'unfortunately the file commander has stopped working. ' Secondly, about the ringer tones. Though the ringtone volume is on full, it is hardly heard. When I try to switch off the phone the volume of ringtone suddenly becomes loud. Similarly when I try to kill some app, the ringer volume becomes loud. Thirdly, the phone screen goes blank and black sometimes. I have to switch off and again switch on the phone many times. The Android Jelly Bean was very good. The phone was very smooth and without any problems. I never had restarted the even once. I hope Sony fixes these glitches as soon as possible

Not a question, but I just wanted to inform that there are 2 Galaxy S IIIs on the list. Not sure if this was intentional or not

Strange that you stated Z Ultra didn't yet have kitkat updates. I'm typing on a Z Ultra that has been updated since last month to the official android 4.4.2. Oh just note that I'm using the international version.

This article is really just a bump that was originally posted in mid-Nov 2013. They didn't update the content at all.

I've got a dealer line with VZW and I love the performance of the phone, but sadly this is a huge problem for me and I'm seriously considering not keeping this line in the future with VZW. I'm sick of knowing that I'm going to be the last to get any update on the "Cutting edge" device that I own with Verizon.

Its almost may, and the S3/Note 2 still don't have even a leak for KitKat. And i'm hoping that the GT-i9300 gets it with improved ram managing.

This list is a testament to the utter and complete failure of having mobile carriers responsible for updates. Basically this means most people will never see a significant update within the average life of the device. It is also a testament to the greed and laziness of Samsung and other hardware makers that are not putting out timely updates for all the wifi devices on the list. And it makes it clear why Google had to move more and more of their apps and infrastructure to Google Play. The carriers and device manufacturers simply can't be counted on to provide a positive user experience to their customers.

Android 4.4.x is aimed to be serving on devices which are on 512MB RAM or above but Samsung is focusing on it's high end devices, that is ok but alongside they should prove the 512MB thing and update their(our) Mid Range Devices too. I use Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 GT S7582, and thus i also want to try the flavour of kitkat on my device and am waiting for the ota update, literally there is no option for custom roms for this "DUOS" device as it uses a new BCM21664(t) based CPU and have Dual SIM (RIL Variant i think). so, my only option is to wait and watch and get...
