Did you know that Samsung is the only OEM which gives its older devices the latest version of Android even after completing the 18 month update cycle.

Explaining withg an example,the company has provided the Samsung Galaxy S2 users 2 major Android updates which are the Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean and note that the Galaxy S2 is a device which was released in April 2011 and initially shipped with Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and finally ended its support in May 2013 which is a total of 25 months updates along the line.

About the new Android 4.3 update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 , there are not much visual changes but there are a ton of under the hood improvements and enhancements. With the update the Galaxy S4 feels much faster than before and the benchmark scores have significantly increased.
