Samsung Galaxy S III LTE (GT-i9305N) gets Android 4.4.4 update

The original Galaxy S III isn’t getting any update love from Samsung ever since the device reached the end of its 18-month support period, but its international LTE variant, launched a few months later, is surely on the top of Samsung’s support list as it has begun getting an update to Android 4.4.4. The update is out for the Galaxy S III LTE in the Nordic region and brings the device’s software version up to I9305NXXUFNI4. KitKat for the LTE-enabled Galaxy S III has been a long time coming, so it’s good to see Samsung has updated it directly to Android 4.4.4, especially since this will probably be the last update for the device.

The update should include all the standard KitKat features – the Galaxy S III LTE should gain wireless printing support, faster performance and reduced memory consumption, white status bar icons, full-screen lockscreen album art, updated Samsung apps, closed captions support, and general stability improvements. As usual, the update will take its due time before reaching every Galaxy S III LTE out there; advanced users can skip the wait and grab the firmware from our firmware section and upgrade manually, and you can also try to force it show up early by heading into the Settings » About phone » Software update menu and hitting that Check now button.

It would be wonderful whether after 2 months, someone could write here some impression of usage, I mean some kind of information (the most important) on battery discharge and/or on performance with difference from the previous version 4.3 , 4.1.2 or earlier, through Antutu Benchmark (or something else) perhaps.
Do you think could be helpful for anyone else? I hope so 🙂

Finally now on 4.4.4 on my GT-I9305! Followed the instructions to flash 4.3 germany (dbt) firmware then update manually via OTA. Works like a charm!

Have you got any bugs on the previous version which were finally fixed by the last (current) update? How much better? Have you ever done a test with Antutu to see the improvement or any kind of study on battery life? Thank you so much. I hope your response would be helpful for someone else

Is there any big differences between csc versions NEEEMK1 and DBTEMJ4?
My plan is update Nordic I9305 from NEE to DBT and get functional 4.4.4 from OTA.
