Reading all the comments here on update to 4.3 from 4.1.2 or whatever is not really worth it. So far update is not released for GCC countries. So better not to update when its released. Thanks for the warning.
My Note 2 got upgraded automatically,unintentionally.
The experience it not great at all and many features are missing Eg:- Edit option for any pictures in Gallery.
I want the previous android version.Please suggest.
my dear friends,
please trust me and do not update your samsung note 2 with 4.3 version software.

Himanshu, 09 Dec 2013I updated my Galaxy Note 2 about a week ago and have been really unhappy with it. Among other ... moreIf you hit the arrow after every word it does not recognize, it will save and remember them ;)
I feel your pain. :'(
So reading these comments, I am having the same issues. All of my saved words are gone, and battery life is horrible to say the least. I am a heavy user, and the phone at least would last through a work day. Now I find myself charging within 5 hours into it.
Been a loyal Samsung customer, but reconsidering if there is not some solution to these issues.
At this point, I am at my wits end, hence why I am on here looking for solutions.
Sorry we all are going through this folks :-/
updated to 4.3 on my Note II yesterday and regret. Battery drainage is obvious. Used to get min 2 / max 3 days battery life because I am not a heavy user. Today my phone is left with 19% battery after a day's use. Charging time also gets longer. Used to get fully charged in an hour or 2. Now at least need to wait for 3 hours. Was always proud of the battery life. Begging for a way to go back to the old OS.
