note 2 users don't update your mobile to 4.3... battery is draining out too fast and we cant use data network when we are on call & voice commands are not responding properly.. but the looks are just awesome
I updated my note 2 with Indian 4.3 firmware but as everyone complaning, me too experiencing the same problem like fast battery drainage, excessive ram consumption under normal usage(>1gb), slow response in opening gallery etc.. so this update is overall useless for consumers like us... I hope Samsung will take our comments into consideration and hopefully release a stability update at the earliest to fix these issues.
reading all comments its a strong message to everyone Not to update to 4.3 as whats the point to gain very little minor tweaks and lose precious battery and ram and lag??? what for....ive heard google kitkat will support cheaper devices too and run effectively even on 512ram models... samsung is luring to update our precious note2 to buggy 4.3 so dat we get frustrated and buy note 3 instead...dey playing smart tactics and fooling us...they must be aware of the bugs but like jackal want to us to fall in the pit....im not updating and sticking to 4.1.2 and maybe wait until fix is provided or wait for kitkat. be smart and dont fall in the trap.
update not avaalable through kies & ota... thre shows latest software is installed... dont knw what to do... any one please help
Got android 4.3 today for my GT-N7100. Was really disappointed, though some nice upgrades. Battery level increase drastically, previously, when was on 4.1.2, battery lasted for 2 days, but now, not even 1 day! This sucks. Memory level also increase, more than 1GB used on normal usage. I am rolling back. Don't be in a hurry to update. wait for stable version.
choudhary, 24 Nov 2013After reading comments I decided not to update my phone. . Because I love battery life in note 2...Hi!!!
I posted this after 24 hour from the time I updated my n7100..
I updated my n7100 via Kies 2.6.. It took almost 3hrs. . I did a master reset after updating.. Then I installed Knox Separately... I found my mobile working well & good.. no lagging, no sudden drop in battery.. RAM Occupied less, as early as in 4.1.2..
So there is nothing difficult in updating n7100...

Updates haven't arrived in the middle east yet. Im sure Samsung will push a shitty update after making us wait for a year on android 4.1.2.

I am from india, had upgated my note 2 before 2 day. My experience with 4.3 are ..
1.Battery drain drastically. Screen is using more than 55% in ideal stat.
2. Battery Charging takes almost double time. Previously it takes 4-5 hrs to fully charge battery, now it takes 8-9 hrs.
3. RAM usage is increased compare to previous version (4.1.2). Previously in ideal stat it was 400 - 500mb and now it is around 800mb
4. After restar it takes time to load lock screen widget.
