Dear Samsung pls fix these problems !
I have problem with HD games like Ravensword,MC2,MC4,GTA vice city and Call of Duty(saying "Incompatible to your device "or "Sorry ! unfortunately ****** is stopped working").Even Manuganu game also.(character and coins are black colored").I am using galaxy note 3 Exynos SM-N900 India version with Android 4.4.2 out of box.
I used SG S Advance which ran perfectly with all those HD games.I like your products.But with this device AM NOT HAPPY !!!

Samsung is going to solve the 3rd party accessories compatibility issues, That's really good.. But I found another problem after I have installed Kit Kat... when I play video equaliser is not working properly. So when I play Video sound quality is really boring now. But before this update it was excellent. R you guys facing the same problem? How can I have good sound quality at the time of playing videos as like before can anyone suggest.. I have experienced the equaliser problem even at the time of playing audio. Every time I start music player, I have to open the equaliser option and select options. Other wise my custom setting is not working. Before the update of kit Kat I have never faced this problem

It proves that Samsung is caring about their consumer, more than few years ago.
Samsung is getting better and better followed by Lg, Galaxy Note 3 and LG G2 are the best of android world.
Note 3 is nothing but perfect.

I gave up waiting for Samjoke and used the Ireland Vodafone ROM which works fine. I will bet money the official UK version, when they do eventually deem to make it avalable, will be the first version and will then have to wait for the second one that fixes the issues it causes. There is an A version and that is what is being rolled out, albeit with many regions not yet getting it. Russia and Poland are currently on a B version that contains the fixes. They are now rolling out both versions simulteously depenedent on your region. Look on and you will see what I mean.
