Drive [Q] Difference between OTA and Kies update

Hi Folks,

I've received 4.3 update for my Galaxy S3. When I connected my phone thru Kies, it downloads data of over 800MB but through OTA the data downloaded is just 407.99MB. I wonder what could be the difference between the two. Please let me know the difference.

Thanks in Advance

The ota update is more like an incremental update, but due to the fact its an update from 4.1 to 4.3 the update is kind of big. Kies should download the full rom.

Btw, wrong section. There is a q&a section
