I know people at my work who updated and were not happy with it all, especially the battery life. But they haven't noticed much difference in user experience.... Just worse battery wise. Glad I didn't update....... And looks like never will. Think HTC next or sony but need removable battery. Be glad to get rid of Vodafone too in few months.

Hi. I started the upgrade and it stopped in between due to something with the internet connection. If i go to update software it asks me to download from 0%

My download was already 90% through. Can someone pl help? How can I resume my download that was running? and not start a fresh one?

After one month using 4.3 I have found some problems even I done hard reset before and after update.
Touch Wiz not responding at all some times,
multi window not working in easy home screen mode,
wake up delay(sleep lag)i.e. take time to awake up when pressing home or power button,
Move to Knox option in gallery is not present,
witch is available in Note 3, to transfer existing files or personal data to Knox container
and music player file sharing option is not found.
Battery icon, wifi, 3G, H+ down/upload arrows are dull in transparent status bar.
overall look is very good and performance is smoother and faster,
no battery drain, no crash, no major issue seen almost.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-01-16 19:05 from dRQ2 - click to readI agree with you all: my phone charges ridiculously slow (charges fast with car charger though), my main beach is that i can't bring pictures into s note without the phone forcing me to crop. Try taking pictures of notes from my prof and 3/4 of what was written is gone. This is a big loss for me, since I can't listen and write at the same time. I don't know why but I turn on the hand free app when driving in the car and that stupid sir I wannabe comes on. Samsung please take this upgrade back. I use to love my phone, now .....well, I don't know how to express my disappointment.

Lousy update.

I am quite unhappy with it.

Like others I am facing a problem with the keyboard. It cannot swipe between languages (I have English and Arabic), and also the keyboard dictionary no longer updates any words I input.

The screen Display modes are inaccurate and either over-saturated or bland. The "natural" setting from 4.1.2 was much better.

Battery life as mentioned is severely affected.
Should we take it to the service center? All they know how to do with software there is wipe and factory reset your phone.

We need answers... solutions... or someone from Android/Samsung or elsewhere can tell us what to do please.

My problem was no multi windows and no zoom. Anyway I foundyour help re settings and put to standard screen rather than easy aand everything now works as it used to thanks so much for posting this help I can't believe it was that easy to solve X x

Updated my noteII 4 days ago, works like charm.

No battery issues, UI has turned out lot smoother.

For all my note2 users, there are three software update in total ( Main update of ~700MB, and two stablity updates of 64MB approx. ).

For those who are facing NO multiwindow problems switch to standard mode

Settings > My device(Tab) > Home screen mode > Select Standard mode

For those who are battery drain issues turn on power saving mode and disable "Access to my location"
Settings > More(Tab) > Location services > Unmark "Access to my location"

(This will enable gps n wifi scanning to access you location, in directly draining battery)

And guys this is perfect official update from sammobile.
