Spent almost 2 days after Updating to android 4.3, the experience is quite good.... Better than the earlier version. Initially It was bit laggy but I chose to backup my device and reset to factory settings... And restored it using kies 3 And now its buttery smooth. Ram management helps a bit but felt battery drains a bit more. Plus points : revamped ui and lock screen; all system apps are upgraded to S4 features; transparent task bar; and many more tweaks that make it feel truly upgraded note 2. But note 3 features would Be more exciting to deal with.... May be till next update we need to be patient....good job samsung :)
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2013Hi Rajat! Can you please let me know how much free space do you have in your phone memory?Total 16GB, System 5.54GB, Used 3.55GB, Cached 205MB, Misc. 2.81GB, Available 3.91GB
Please dont update your phone ... this 4.3 style is worst i hate to look at my phone when somebody calls... Gallery is very slow...
updated yesterday ,... no lags ... however battrey has been impacted m down to 34 % from 9 am via a vis i used to be at 50 % at the same time same usage
also no multi window , wallet
expect a software patch asap to fix the battrey drain
Ever since the new update rolled out i decided not to go ahead and update my fone right away and it would be best to wait and see what others have to say... however, i couldnt help but notice that samsung keeps pulling out the update everyday for a few hours.. this usually happens in the morning and afternoons...
ALso, i have seen many people complaining that the phones perforamce decreases after the update where as some say their fone works better, so was wondering what is the total memory free in your fone after the update as that could be 1 of the reasons why the fone works slow.

All the people here facing problem with lag and slow performace, can you please let me know how much free space do you have on your phone memory?
Got my update on note 2 using kies yesterday. its one day with 4.3 on galaxy note 2. the screen and font sizes are awesome. Screen is brighter and more pleasant. battery usage did not find any issues. Memory usage was slightly higher. did not exeprience any lag though there was one crash of my phone not sure whether it was due to upgrade.Will keep posted regarding my experience.
Was expecting lot much in 4.3 then what has been rolled out. Performance has really gone down. Battery is getting consumed at lightening speed, also in Gallery when we hit Share it stops it by giving error "unfortunately, gallery has stopped".
rakesh rai, 20 Nov 2013For note 2 updates available in India. Hi,
Is the 4.3 update available over the air? I am on 4.1.2 and When I check for Software Update, it says that no updates are available. I am in India.
Thanks for any help.
Hi I updated my note 2 yesterday thro OTA. AM happy I did.
-- first time I tried I had only around 2.5 GB or storage even as it was downloading a critical storage space message flashed clicked home button, deleted few more apps apace was around 3.5 GB the download stopped in between restarted and said yees to wifi connected continue download. Download completed clicked "install all" install started but failed at 24%.
On reboot this time deleted some more apps to get 3.8 GB free, download succeeded clicked "Install" this time, and update was through. both times the download size was around 760MB (I think, not sure) was able to download consistently OTA at around 2mbps.
- changes look like there is KNOX, no wallet, battery consumption seems little higher, move2SD works but only for some of the apps and only for app code (not data it remains internal storage)- move2sd is the reason I wanted this update. anyways was able to install all apps i wanted all OK am happy I did this update.
