My device (India) got a massive, useless 1.2 GB unknown update via KIES 3.xx.xxx on 28th December 2013. It took 8.5 hours to download on a 512 Kbps stable broadband.
It got installed on 29th Dec 2013 at 02:30 AM Indian time.
Before my device got 14 MB unknown update (after upgrading to 4.3).
So after getting 4.3 :
1) 14 MB update
2) 1.2 GB massive useless update.
Battery has improved only a bit. Looks like samsung has gone mad providing 1.2 GB update.
