I don't know why some people are complaining here about lagging issue in 4.3 o/s.
Go to settings --> application manager --> all and choose ALL. Open every app (that you feel you don't use) from the ALL list and then choose force stop and disable.
Less battery backup reason is acceptable. But it is improved a bit after 2 updates (in 4.3 version android).
Shibu, 02 Jan 2014Note II is possible to degrade from 4.3 to 4.1 pls need some guidance.Better don't downgrade.
I tried downgrading from odin but it failed multiple times.
Go to recovery mode and do wipe data n cache. Restart ur mobile and again on top of that do facatory reset. All your problems will solved if u have any on 4.3 ROM.
4.3 official ROM is very very good :-)

san, 02 Jan 2014Hi want to buy one but confuse between NOTE 2 and GRAND 2 ... i like NOTE 2 but Grand 2 also c... moreChoose Note 2 because plenty of developers support Note 2.don't worry with the update because stock ROM are limited.if your Note 2 had custom ROM its almost limitless with the features.i will not recommend Grand 2, to make you satisfied compare this phones here in GSMARENA and you will see the difference of Note 2 & Grand 2.Good luck..(:
siddhss, 02 Jan 2014sorry samsung i sold my note2 yesterday coz of lots of headaches of 4.3 issue with battery and... moreYes! still 4.3 update for Note 2 is not fully stable..i flashed my note 2 with 4.3 custom ROM and i'm very satisfied the result.while connected to mobile data battery last to 6-8 hours & ROM was very smooth.avoid to hotspot the unit coz it drain your battery fastly.also,80-85 percent of Note 3 features are ported to Note 2 custom ROM so no need to buy Note 3 because your Note 2 still very best with custom ROM and you'll experience the Note 3 features.if you had a plan to purchase Note 3 just save your money for Note 4.love your Note 2 with custom ROM and you will amaze how still good this phone until now..(:
