I'll say its a pretty good phone depending on how much you forked over for it....as for L I can't confirm it will come officially or not as that will be up to Samsung to say or release...which right now there is no confirmation... Though I can say there will be custom Roms based on L I'm sure...I know I plan on building it

I've had the s3 for over a year now and mines still running smoothly. I have no complaints whatsoever. As far as L is concerned there hasn't been no announcement to the s3 getting it but as reventech stated I'm sure there will be custom builds

I've had my s3 since they were introduced, still using it to this day. Of course, I've never had the KNOX boot loader either. One of my favorite phones to date. Waiting on the G3, because any new Samsung is gonna have KNOX, I can handle it, just don't want to have a KNOX booboo because I totally forgot that I had it.

I already really liked my S3 on 4.3 and on 4.4.2 I'm really loving it.

4.4.2 is supposed to be the last official stock update for our phones but you just never know until the time gets here. And as we mentioned, of course there will always be AOSP / CM / etc versions of Android L.

I love the s3 and I would say it is one of the best phones to root. It's still got great technology and hardware, but without some of the hassle and hoops you gotta jump through with newer phones. Plus there's a crap ton of mods that are still being updated and supported. Not to mention the fact that it's old enough to feel like a hacker when rooting/modding but not too hard that a noob can't do it.
