Galaxy S3 KitKat ROM


Samsung officially announced that it won't update its Galaxy S3 I9300 smartphone to Android 4.4. KitKat due to unresolved Hardware limitations issues, which came as sad news for the S3 users worldwide. Today, thanks to the Android XDA community, you can Now get Android 4.4. KitKat on your Galaxy S3 I9300 through a custom ROM. As long as you don't have an issue with rooting your device and following the instructions on the forum (source link below), then you'll be able to enjoy KitKat on your S3.

However, as with most custom ROMs, the KitKat ROM for the S3 isn't perfect. There are still some stability and usability issues, and not all features of the phone may function properly. Users may experience some glitches as well. However, if nearly all previous custom ROMs are any indication, the KitKat S3 ROM will get better with time as the community continues to work out the kinks.


Android KitKat 4.4.3

It's interesting to note that the KitKat ROM file is too large to fit onto the Galaxy S3's internal storage; Samsung's pre-loaded bloatware is primarily to blame. Once it was removed, the hackers were able to successfully port it without any storage space issues.

Galaxy S5 & Galaxy S4


On May 11, Samsung's current flagship Galaxy S5 will have been available on the market for exactly one Month (launched April,11th). We do know that the first day sales of the Galaxy S5 were significantly higher than the first day sales of Samsung's last year flagship, the Galaxy S4. At the same time, the launch weekend sales of the device also beat the ones of its greatest rival, the Apple iPhone 5s.


S5 vs. S4

In this line of thought, it is quite curious to compare the overall adoption rates of the two devices, the S4 and the S5, for a bigger amount of time and see if the trend is still present. Luckily, the folks at Chitika, an online advertising network, released a statistical report that gives us more insight on the matter. According to Chitika, the Galaxy S5 accounted for 4.3% of all Samsung smartphone web traffic in North America just 25 days after it got launched, from April 11 throughout May 5. which is more than Double what the Galaxy S4 had 2.0% only in one month after it released.

The Galaxy S5 will undoubtedly be one of the hits on the smartphone market this year, but Samsung's rivals won't stay idle on the contrary, their smartphones are going to fight tooth and nail with the Galaxy S5 for a bigger share of the market.

Samsung is no doubt a mobile powerhouse, the latest IDC quarterly update gives us a look into just how much of a powerhouse the Korean manufacturer is. 30.3% of total smartphone market share is controlled by Samsung, which is about 85 million units, in Q1 2014.

All "other" smartphones account for 40.5% of the market share, but these are hardly the bigger players that pose a threat to Samsung's current market dominance.

IDC predicts that smartphone shipments will reach 1.2 billion units, total, for 2014; a 200 million increase from last year. This is due to growth in the smartphone market and the constant spread of new models entering the market, especially low-range handsets.
