samsung galaxy s3 review 1024 640x231

Quite a lot of people are still rocking the Samsung Galaxy S3 and since the device is supported for software updates, they have been patiently waiting to get a piece of KitKat on their device. Good news for U.S. Cellular subscribers today. The carrier has started rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for its Galaxy S3. The roll out has already begun so the update may already have popped up on devices by now.

Everything that we have come to expect from the KitKat update will be included in the latest OTA. The update brings slight user interface improvements, better security and stability, camera shortcut, advanced location control, support for wireless printing and a lot more.

Users may also notice slight performance improvements after updating to the latest firmware.¬†Updated camera and phone apps as well as the “OK Google” voice command also comes with this update.

Those who have not yet received the update on their Galaxy S3, even though that’s quite unlikely, can head over to the settings application and manually try pulling the update. If that doesn’t work immediately then the best thing to do would be to wait for a while as the update will eventually make its way to the device.
