3 to 5 weeks?
T-Mobile had the 4.4.3 update on my Moto G in a couple days.
Android fans who are hoping Google will debut a new version of the OS at its annual I/O conference in San Francsico next week might be in for a disappointment ... because the company is rolling out a new version this week. On Friday, the Chocolate Factory published firmware images of Android 4.4.4 – yes, we're still talking " …
I got fed up with the performance of my S3 the other day and nearly bought a new phone, so I decided to try Cyanogenmod before shelling out. The Cyanogenmod installer took 10 minutes and was literally a point and click installer from Windows. It installed a new fast ROM and a copy of Clockworkmod as a recovery option.
Since then I've enjoyed upto date Android and the speed of the phone is amazing, it's as fast as when I got it nearly 2 years ago if not faster. I'm really impressed, have a read and give it a whirl.

Which leaves you with no way of using the Barclay's bank app as cyanogenmod counts as a routed device.. Or are you suggesting I change my bank as well as the software on my phone.
Also it voids any warranty so Samsung will not repair any physical defect with the phone (including a faulty battery or a cracked screen or bezel) if its not got their bloatware on it...
CyanogenMod disables root by default, since 2012 anyway (from memory you have to go into some kind of hidden developer menu to enable it, which frankly is impossible to do by accident). Unless your banking app is checking for the vendor code or something it should work fine.
Most Android devices suffer from a double MitM attack (Manufacturer in the Middle).
As far as I know, there are two ways to avoid that. First, buy your device, don't get it via a carrier plan. That gets rid of the one middleman. For the other, either get one of the Nexus devices, or install Cyanogenmod.
My HTC One updated to 4.4.2 just last week. Not sure whether this is due to HTC's lab processes or Three being slow pushing the update; perhaps even a combination of the two. I think this one will go the way of my Wildfire S and be getting the Cyanogenmod treatment once the contract expires.
