Strangely, after I posted about not to upgrade to KitKat, three or four people in one day, out of the sudden, said they had problems after KitKat. Why is this strange ?
Because in the past 2 weeks about 2 or 3 posts about KitKat issues were posted every 2 or 3 days, What made you suddenly remember you had a problem with KitKat ?
1- Either you just keep repeating your problems and my post was a reminder for you to come cry again.
2- You didn't upgrade to KitKat, you may not even have a Note 3, but you are making this to scare people out or to indirectly say Samsung sucks.
And like I said before, there is the same issues that are posted with the update to KitKat, so don't upgrade till the firmware become stable and bugs get fixed, otherwise you are risking the smoothness and full functionality of your phone for a couple of new features that you will forget about the next day after updating, but you will not forget the problems that came with it. So, don't do it now, wait a month or two.

Note 3 members,
Those with phone issues after KTK (4.4) update please factory reset your phone and that will solve all your problems.
Instal ES File app from playstore(ES3) and backup all your apps for later restoration.

firstly my galaxy note 3 (N9000) running smoothly with android 4.3 jelly bea... moreHope you had activated Finger View from the settings. There are three options, Spen Air View, Finger Air View, Auto option to work with both.
Microsoft Document Viewer works fine, i.e, Polaris, and there are many available in the PlayStore, free and paid.

The Z1 has a bulky body thats not much smaller than the N3 but only fits a 5" screen... those bezels are FUGLY!!
- Has typically average sony battery life (53 hours against the note 3s 75)
- Has no replaceable battery
- Has max 16GB internal storage
- Has no move app to SD

We don't hear Sony suing for "stolen" tech. Pretty big bezels. It's only water resistant. We have heard many incidences of waterlogged Xperia.
People just buy Samsung because is overated , I better buy xperia z1 . Remember Samsung uses Sony camera sensor on note 3 , stole touch gesture From Sony. They all hve same snapdragon 800, Sony is waterproof n best camera ever as proven thru UK individuals . This Koreans are fake
I had upgraded to kitkat throygh ota on 31st Jan. Post upgrade I was getting huge issue of phone getting hang. Screen unlock ducks. Touch of screen reduced in big way. I had to touch 5 to 6 times for doing anything. Please help me in degrading back to jelly bean.

- "finger air-view doesn't work"
No problem here with air view, it is working perfectly.
- "Voice command always not match and need to talk loudly many times."
- "Microsoft office document view doesn't work"
Its working here as well...
- "Always not match with smart cover"
I don't use s view
People says battery issues and auto restart issues, but I don't see any single issue after updating to kitkat.
I see beautiful keyboard, nice in app transparent status bar, and few UI changes.
All in all its nice experience after kitkat update.
Maybe they are trolls or it maybe the random issue. Or maybe they need to factory reset to fix the issues if they really have.
But luckily I am fine with KitKatt chocolaty and white ui and perfect ram management... and if somebody says that his gn3 is lagging after kitkat, I can't believe that :/
Pretty much the most versatile pocket device in the market right now. So much features and connectivity. Just wait out the update bugs that's happening. No big difference to update to Kitkat.
This is why I wait weeks and even months to update. Jellybeans still works properly.
