samsung smartphones are still having issues with their chipsets. I used to have a S4, but when this rebooting problems came (continuously on-off, rebooting) the problem was the chipset, replacing the chipset is like buying a mid-range smart phone. go and see a samsung service center, and you'll see a lot of chipset problems!
samsung grand 2 now in kitkat 4.4.2

The kitkat update on Samsung galaxy grand 2 having following issues -
1) mobile power saver mode not working properly , it's CPU goes to full throttle middle of the day despite being on power sav.
2) heard of poor graphic performance on gaming
3) 1 sec. Lag while opening mobile from start button press.
4). Default front camera viewfinder not working properly the image is spread up.
5) call quality in single sim has reduced by 50% and even single reception has reduced .
6) rear camera performance reduced by about 20% , colour no longer as lively as in android 4.3
All in all the update seems to not have been properly tested , it looks like a demo build of the actual kitkat or Samsung released the kitkat update in hurry.
In kitkat apps can be copied to SD though the data copies is bit less than android 4.3
User please let me know how you got the 21 mob update , ota update shows software latest , please inform the new firmware numbers forum members
Alerts For Grand 2 users (VERY IMP)
I updated my grand 2 to 4.4.2 using kies software After updating I noticed some serious issue.
1.>Lockscreen wallpaper not changing.
2.>Any file manger app available on googleplay will not be able to copy,write Or paste in internal or external mmc even we use otg (even if u try to share file using wifi transfer cannot save that file in external memory card).
3.>Most Stupid Thing USB mass storage is not availble in both 4.3 or in 4.4.2 we have to use mtp connection which is available by default after connecting usb which takes too long time for transfer data means 5 min will extended to 20 mins compare to usb mass storage transfer data.
4.>We can play heavy game like NFS MW, REAl Racing 3 Fifa 12 or 14 but due to low
memory We cannot keep more than 2 games every time we have to transfer our game data
from external memorycard to internal.
5.>While transfering files using inbuild file manger we cannot do other things (means using other apps) or else phones keeps on hanging till transfering is completed.
6.>In 4.4.2 battery also drain fast compare to 4.3 .
7.>In 4.4.2 we get new 3 types of new live wallpaper which consume lots of battery power.
8.>In both 4.4.2 & 4.3 auto brightness does not work as per our surrounding lights auto brightness only work for app only like if auto bright is on & if we open camera phone brightness autmatically gets rise so we can capture good photo or video
