Galaxy Note 3 gets an update, fixes accessory compatibility - read the full textMany users were complaining about broken compatibility with third-party accessories since Samsung launched the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Galaxy Note 3. Apparently most of the S View-like third-party cases stopped working after the update. Samsung has recently acknowledged the issues...

Solution: while the phone is still switched on, fully detach and re-attach the back cover. It worked for my Note 3.

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.
