While Using Software data cable I'm not able to copy/paste files directly into the memory card !this update sure sucks !
I have the android kitkat update - g7102DDUBNG1 of 8th august installed , following is one month review of the same -
1. 20% call quality poor reception and voice reception , though better than Sony phones , but grand 2 call quality in 4.3 was better in comparison.
2. DAYLIGHT HDR MODE NOT WORKING , GIVES WASHED OUT PHOTOS , EVEN INDOOR PHOTOS UNDER ARTIFICAL LIGHTS NOT GIVING PROPER RESULT.
3. CPU cap of Power saver mode not working.
4. Random blue screen , abrupt hangs while receiving calls and random hangs - stability update issues faced.
Unless these 4 issues are sorted out , no point absolutely in updating to kitkat , and I hope SAMSUNG IS LISTENING , EARLIER DAY I CALLED SAMSUNG HELPLINE , THEY DENIED ANY UPDATE ISSUES !!!
For 4.3 users , please hang on there till android 4.4.4 or if you get user better response to new update on gsm arena , either way it's a minor update , and the negatives outweighs the benefits.

Hey I had the the same problem.My phone was restarting after every 2 mins. But the problem is resolved after I started my phone in SAFE mode. To enter into Safe mode - just after restarting your phonen it displays The makers name and name of the phone model just keep pressing volume down key until it shows home screen. Your phone's Down left corner will have small black strip that reads Safe Mode. Then it will display a message that phone upgraded successfully. Then see if it is running smoothly. After that you can restart your phone as you do normally. It helped me wish it'll he

Hi, I recently purchased Galaxy grand 2. Post upgrade to Kitkat 4.4.2... the camera stopped working. I tried resetting to factory settings but it still didn't work.
When I checked Settings>>Application Manager>>All>> Camera... I see it has 0.00B memory.
Can anyone guide me with a workaround to start the Camera application.
