TreyBlogHD, 05 Mar 2014why are we still waiting in england and to make it worse both my note 3 and my s4 are unlocked... moreRe English kitkat for Note 3, I just looked into this and have it directly from someone at Carphone Warehouse (store rep) that Samsung want people to experience kitkat on the S5 first, therefore, kitkat won't be release for the Note 3 until April!! This is just like Apple, who always release a major upgrade to iOS at the same time as a new iPhone. Morally disgusting because most of us paid good money for the Note 3, so should be treated with some respect.
What makes this pathetic is that the Note 3 does not sell to the same demographic as the Note 3. The Note 3 with it's stylus and quality electronics is a phone for creative professionals and productivity workers, whilst the S5 is as per the iPhone 5S, Xperia Z and HTC One a high end consumer device.
why are we still waiting in england and to make it worse both my note 3 and my s4 are unlocked. even my partners HTC one is unlocked but still nothing man this sucks

I got my Kitkat update for my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 from T-Mobile this morning. I had to check for the update manually on my phone, as there was no notification.
Im from pakistan. Plz help me.
Plz can anyone tell me that when I get kitkat 4.4 update for my note 3 sm-n900 in pakistan? Plz anyone know.
I've downloaded the update in Charlotte, NC on Tmobile network. It's available through OTA, checking settings>>About Device>>Software Update using WiFi connection. The update is stable & working properly thus far. Awesome features!!
Downloading my update now in Dallas TX!!! Excited, needless to say....
Yep !! manually connected. downloading 495.75mb file, east coast >>> looks like a 1.5 hour download. using wifi connection!
DOES ANY ONE KNOWS WHEN WILL THE UPDATE BE READY FOR SM-9005 ?! I am using SM-N905, I am trying to upgrade it and looking for update but it says that I havr the latest update, am looking for update using the phone not kies , my version is (N9005XXUDMJ7), I need help please, thank you.
Bigstrudel, 05 Mar 2014Run those benchmarks again!
4.4 for Samsung devices eliminates selective benchmark optimizations.Tested fresh note 3 exynos variant and again tested right before it's 4.4 update
Had marginal difference...both were under 34k
Updated to kitkat and 1st thing was benchmarking....got 35k...so I'm very confused as to weather there are still benchmark optimizations or there never were or perhaps kitkat is the much more efficient than what many predict....
PS: Benchmark used...yes you perhaps guessed it right...it's got to be antutu!
Telling me "This software update is not available via mobile networks. When Wi-Fi reconnects, your download will start."
Downloading kit Kat 4.4 for T-Mobile USA right now,currently 25% complete.
Been running the kit kat update on my note3 for 6 hours. So far, so good. No bugs to report. New lock screen features are nice and the integrated mms in hangouts is pretty cool
