Default Update 4.1.2 to 4.3 PDA: NA5 PHONE NA8

Hey there!

My wife's S3 still runs 4.1.2 as I wanted to keep it away from 4.3 update issues.

However today I had to wipe it down to a fresh and clean as it was running with great lag.

Now it is flash like a light but I just noticed on SamMobile there are 4.3 April/May releases. Kies says NA5/NA8 is waiting to bloat wife's phone. Should I do it? Issues are fixed or better to stay with 4.1.2?
Or maybe Odin it with some other country (S3 in Poland, International version, no branding)...

She is not android freak. She just need responsible phone able to call and have good battery life for some photos/facebook.

Thx in advance

4.3 is awesome IMHO but keep away from MK6 or older build, if possible, download NB6 or later, it doesn't have problems anymore like home button lag or something like that.
