Got the 4.3 update. After a patient wait of about 2 months got nothing. There is nothing worthy and fascinating. New s pen features should have been added. A great disappointment.
Thanks for the shitty update .. I wont buy Samsung again .. This is lesson for everyone .. lets say hi to Nexus
HERES THE GOOD Part !!!!
1)The Notification Bar is finally transparent similar to s4 and note 3...Feels Great..!!!!
2)Highly customisable notification panel and it finally doesn't moves leftways wen pulled down.
3) New multiwindow with smooth interface and more apps support (Hope had 2 similar apps running capability also.)
4) Full screen usage of apps like Videos ,Music player and gallery...WOW!!!
5)mUCH MORE crisp colour reproduction.
6)Beautiful lock screen (Glow Effect is Simply WOWWW..!!!1)
7) wIDGETS on Lock screen are very useful.
8) Tabbed settings Menu.
9) Camera additional feature of sound & shot.
10)Video player is very smooth and nice interface much on whiter shade as ios 7.
11)Enhanced audio quality as per my judgement.
12) Very smooth Internet but missing the new interface of s4 and note 3.
13)Blocking Mode....VeRY hANDY wen u dnt wanna be disturbed.
14) New Calculator, Contacts app etc....
14) MOST IMPORTANT ::::::: MOVE TO SD CARD FEATURE ....ONE THING I KNOW WE ALL MISSED A LOT IN JB 4.1....(tHANKS GOOGLE FOR LISTENING TO ALL UR beloved android users)
Now the downs....(WISH THR WERE NONE)
1)System lag in touch wiz (i.e after exiting an application it takes several seconds for all the icons to gather back like it used to be in times of galaxy s and tab 1 & note 1.
2) More memory consumption.
3)Gallery app iis slow and it takes time to load all thumbnails if u have 1000 nds of pictures and albums.( I have and loading all thumbnails for once only is like a pain)
4) Music player bringing up the "Now Playing" is a little bit slow as previous versions.
5) Missing S-pen FEATURES OF nOTE 3....AND OLD INTERFACE OF S -MEMO.
6)OLD AND BORED CAMERA INTERFACE.
Here's My Experience in last 5-6 hours.
I dont think the lag is an Update problem ...being such a major update thr are chances that all these problems are eradicated once we carry on a fresh installation (with cache cleared and data wipe selected) rather than updating to save our data.
I'll freshly install within a Day or Two and get back to u Guys with updated experience and reviews...
For the time being if u find my review helpful then Put a thumbs UP..!!!!!! This is My first Review on any Website.....
hope it helps.
Couldn't find Note3 features.. Air Command, etc...
I will not buy any samsung device going forward...
Samsung go to hell....
Such a waste of money on this device. Huge let down with the 4.3 update. Not much in terms of features it's just a minor update to keep all the note 2 users occupied. Samsung Please some value update ASAP.

hussy, 20 Nov 2013Can any one access the multi window option in note 2?
i tried to activate multi window , un... moreBuddy I dnt know why ..but multi window is fully functional in my note 2 after 4.3 update in india.
pls chk settings in display and see that multi window is checked.
man, u call this an update? , more of a ripoff for all note 2 users. Samsung u only give some new stupid we- gets, well i can find them on the market .
shame on you!
Update... no its not.. piece of it to make gear to work and to make more money.. money minded samsung.. nothing else..
Samsung sucks for not adding the note 3 features!! Even the S2 got most of the jelly bean features, along with S3, and the owners of the first phablet ever don't get anything worthwhile!!
Highly disappointed with Samsung. We're still sitting on 4.1.2 and just now got a crappy 4.3 update while HTC, Motorola and LG are updating to 4.4 Kitkat.
All I know is, I know better than to buy Samsung again.
got update for my galaxy note2 but only very slight improvement and no more features. shame on you Samsung
