Updated from 4.3 to 4.4.2 kitkat yesterday. It was around 420MB and took some to download and update it (around 1 hour). Wanted to share my experience:
* It seems that the color calibration has been improved just a little as whites are a little better now as compared to the earlier ver.
* The devise feels just a little smoother and faster (not a major change though).
* Not sure about the battery life yet, but seems the same till now.
* Checked the benchmarks now, the quadrant score has increased from 6k earlier to around 12k now (impresive increase). The antutu X and antutu score remains the same i.e. around 22k.
* Faced one problem till now, the jet audio lockscreen widzet was casing problems so I have to change it to the basic one, thats all. (The default player lockscreen widget has been improved and displayed on full screen now)
* Im using the golauncher thus the look have not been changed at all.
Overall it just feels good to have the latest update.

Anonymous, 04 May 2014my phone Bluetooth and wireless refuse to switch on. please how do I solve this.Open your note 2 settings. Go to the settings. For wifi network, turn it on and you will see a green colour on the switch. Make sure the area is covered with WLAN for your phone to access it. Some require password and others are open. For blue tooth make sure its on and visible to other devices. Its always easy to forget to turn on the visibility switch so make sure its all done well. Finally if it all doesn't work out, reset your phone.
I upgraded my phone to 4.4.2 2 days ago and i must say that its a pretty useless update.
Going from JB to Kitkat would seem like there would be some significant changes but there arnt any.
The phone works a little faster but its barely noticeable and there are very insignificant changes to the icons.
The only things worth noticing about the update is the improved battery and lowered RAM usage.. not impressed at all with this update!
I used to love this phone very much. I have owned it for about 7 months now.
Recently, it quite often does not register any signal. I have to restart it several times before it can regain the signal. It's not about signal strength as when I insert the SIM into a feature phone, it works without any signal lost or drop.
If you guys know any solution, please kindly suggest. Thanks in advance!
Yes its true.. 4.4.2 Update has been released in india. Its about 450 MB. They have not included the integrated google now on the homescreen like in the nexus 5.. or i haven't figured it out yet.. anyway its amazing the the KitKat update is finally out for note 2.
