I just updated my note 3 LTE to Kitkat 4.4
There's no bug but it overheat a little bit on the back of the phone.
Living in the UK, my Samsung Galaxy 3 Note LTE was automatically updated to Android Kit Kat. Upon rebooting of the phone, I found that the phone would lock up and freeze for a long period of time, resulting in the screen going black but still being able to hear sounds when I pressed buttons etc. I phoned Samsung support team and they told me that they have heard of this problem before and asked me to download Kies 3 from their UK website, then copy across my phone data, contacts etc. After my data was saved, I was told to perform a reset of the phones operating system by holding down the power, home and volume up keys whilst it was rebooted. Then choose the reset phone option. Rebooting the phone again restored the phone to back to factory settings but retained the Kit Kat operating system. All I then did was restore my contacts and data from Kies 3 and reload my applications from Google play. All is working well now and have not had any more operating freezes. Though, my battery live is reduced when compared to the older operating system the phone had.
Aquarius2, 06 Mar 2014How is your update working? I'm in Indiana too and would like to update mine too if it is good. I'm at Indiana too, no major improvements with this update, the only thing it's that today the battery drained in 12 hours, yesterday lasted 28 hours really weird. No bugs so far. I like the fact that I could install and use the Google launcher
I received the OTA KitKat update on my T-Mobile Samsung Note 3 about two weeks ago.
I noticed some quirky actions since the update. My screen has frozen a couple of times, screen auto rotation doesn't respond as well for a couple of apps, the camera access button now on the lock screen doesn't work and my battery has been discharging much faster than it did before the update.
Needless to say, I'm NOT exactly pleased!
Updated to Kitkat on 10/05/14 in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Using a Snapdragon variant. There's not much of a change overall. But it is a lot more snappier than before, anr the RAM seems to have increased. And I don't get why people are complaining about the device sometimes becoming slow, and even freezing. The update does anything BUT slow Note 3. Come on.
Upgrading to Kitkat for Note3 it makes same features not work (SView)...it's better to downgrade to Jelly bean...Until now there isn't solution or Information for it from Samsung...
i got kitkat update notification last week but when i went on to update it later that week its showing that no updates available....somebody say me wht to do ?
I am about to download and install the Kitkat 4.4.2 in my Note 3. (Philippines)
- uses more battery life
- instances of slow load or freezing screen
Anything else that you may add?
Updated note 3 this evening. Nothing Ive noticed so far besides the color change of the battery status bar. A dislike I see is that i lost the ability to zoom in and out of web pages using pinching and widening with 2 fingers while in my Internet browser.

After upadting to 4.4 my note3 is going way to hungry and I hav to recharge it twice a day which wasnt the case before the kitkat update. I am also facing overheating problem after kikat update.
