The Samsung Galaxy S3 is certainly no longer what we’d call a bleeding-edge device, but even after nearly two years, its still a reasonably solid handset and is more than capable of providing a decent Android experience. Today the handset is getting even better for those on Sprint’s network, as Android 4.4 KitKat is making its way over to the Galaxy S3.

So what’s new here? While we don’t have a full change-log just yet, from the sounds of it the only truly noticeable change is KitKat and all the new goodies that come with it. Just like the GS4 and Note 3 KitKat updates, you can also expect some minor Samsung and carrier-specific changes such as bug fixes and performance improvements.

Overall, don’t expect tons of new features here, but this is still very much a welcome update, especially considering the fact that the Galaxy S3 has been on the market for a while now. If you have yet to receive a notification prompting you to download the update, you can check manually for the update by going to Settings>About phone>Software update.

If you have received the updated, did you notice any major changes outside of Kitkat that are worth mentioning? If so, tell us about it in the comments below.
