I had the original note, and have recently upgraded to the note 3, so if Samsung keeps to the same sort of time frame then it'll most likely be the note 5 by the time you (we!) upgrade :)
[deleted post]Butterfly S briefly only sold briefly, only to be outdated by HTC One in less than a month. HTC repair center for my city is only one and it's open only every other day. That's how they value after sales services.
They closed down a couple of sales shops too.

TigerTabish, 20 Jan 2014yeah you're right i think I'm going with you..Just don't trust anyone's advice. Research from numerous sources.
It'll cost you the time and even the fees to get your Note 3 fixed, because some poser gave you the wrong advice.
As a general rule for OS updates, just wait for official ones via Kies or from your carriers. These updates aren't usuit'smajor, and there's no point in risking having a bricked device of you don't know how to reverse the process of reinstall the original OS version.
I wait for reviews before installing to see if there are issues with battery performance or radios weakening.
I stick to original ROMs as I experienced crashes with custom ROMs. Rooting is a careful process and I read the necessary research from different sites and a number of video tutorials, and a safety net of reversing the process.
Rooting is necessary if you want to tinker processor, graphics tweaks on some apps, etc. I for one needed to freeze or uninstall some stock apps. I made the security app Cerberus as System app, meaning it's not going to be wiped out with a reboot. This is so I can keep tabs on my phone in the event it's stolen.

This is another of the many plagiarised advices of this anti-Note 3. He's posing as if he has a Note 3 but can't formulate his own reviews since he doesn't actually have a Note 3.

Once Downloaded, connect your Galaxy Note 3 with the help of original USB cable and place the zip files in the device. Disconnect the device so that it can be entered in the Recovery Mode.
Recovery mode in Galaxy Note 3 can be entered by holding the Volume Up button + the Home key button (the middle button). While holding these both buttons, you need to switch ON your device. In recovery mode, select options to clear and wipe the data present in your phone.
In recovery mode, select “install zip from sd card” and then choose the zip file of Liquid Smooth KitKat 4.4.2 Android firmware and then the Google Apps Package which you have placed in your phone.
Once the firmware is updated, select “Go Back” and select “reboot system now”. The whole process of firmware update will take around 4 -5 minutes and in some cases it may take more time.
To check on whether the firmware is updated or not, head over to the path “Settings > About Phone” for checking the same where you will see the current firmware version as KitKat 4.4.2.
