Kies for samsung galaxy s3
May 15, · Kies is a pile of streaming poo. It reminds me of "Nokia Suite" and 'Ovi Suite" from my Symbian days, they were awful too. I never use Kies, it just takes up space on my hard drive so Odin can use the drivers. By the way Kies 3 shouldn't work with a Samsung Galaxy SIII, Kies (without a number) is the one you need to use. Does anyone know how to get a Samsung Galaxy S3 to Kies? i've just got a new s3 & have had the same problem on two different PCs (windows). Kies has downloaded successfully but when i plug in the phone using the usb i get a "connecting" message but it does not connect. Jul 06, · This is the slowest step of the whole processes. Samsung Kies will download the whole Samsung Galaxy S3 firmware from Samsung server. Usually, Samsung Galaxy S3 firmware size is around MB to MB. Unlike OTA update which usually around 50 MB in size. So take a cup of coffee if you have a slow Internet connection.
