Android 4.3 update for Samsung Galaxy Note II rolling out - read the full textDuring the weekend an Android 4.3 update for the Samsung N7100 Galaxy Note II (the non-LTE version) leaked, but it wasn’t compatible with the N7105 (the LTE version). That doesn’t matter anymore as Samsung is rolling out the official update for both. The update is reportedly more stable than the...

It seems that after a major update we should all do a factory reset.

But if I do a factory reset, can I restore everything from a backup? Or will restoring from a backup bring back all the same problems?

Not being to tech savvy I though I was the only one that had problems with the version 4.3 upgrade. After the upgrade, the multiwindow function has automatically been disabled and it cannot be switch on no matter how I tried. The menus has change and I now can't find the place where you can sync rules. This version us taking me backwards and I'm starting to get mixed feelings about Android and Samsung.

After upgrade 4.3 my note2 when I text randomly will not appear nor show letters type in text mode after acfew c seconds it will just spit out what you had type seconds earlier on the screen and or at times it will lock up in middle of text then continue to be able to type rest of your text. Is very slow and annoying that Samsung needs to send info to correct thia problem and other with upgrade being their obligation to their customer trusting their upgrade to work properly not go backwards causing more headaches. Please set up a site to given solutions to this problem man others on going issues being so far unresolved due to your careless actions to send faulty upgrades and we the customer pay a bad price for it.

I'm in Australia using the Telstra network, after updating to 4.3, I cannot make simple GSM phone calls out of my home and surrounding suburb. This is annoying as I can only send sums. I've even went to my Telco to change a new sim card but this doesn't work.
Its also annoying why I have a phone that can't make phone calls?

after i installed the latest android 4.3 version, i can't use the swipe keyboard, i need to type each out the letter one by one. among all other settings that they revert to default setting, it's only this one that i can't change back to swipeable. it's annoying that my smart phone became less smart
