I upgraded my phone to 4.4.2 2 days ago and i must say that its a pretty useless update.
Going from JB to Kitkat would seem like there would be some significant changes but there arnt any.
The phone works a little faster but its barely noticeable and there are very insignificant changes to the icons.
The only things worth noticing about the update is the improved battery and lowered RAM usage.. not impressed at all with this update!
I used to love this phone very much. I have owned it for about 7 months now.
Recently, it quite often does not register any signal. I have to restart it several times before it can regain the signal. It's not about signal strength as when I insert the SIM into a feature phone, it works without any signal lost or drop.
If you guys know any solution, please kindly suggest. Thanks in advance!
Yes its true.. 4.4.2 Update has been released in india. Its about 450 MB. They have not included the integrated google now on the homescreen like in the nexus 5.. or i haven't figured it out yet.. anyway its amazing the the KitKat update is finally out for note 2.

gunbi, 04 May 2014After updating to 4.4.2 we can install GOOGLE CAMERA on note 2 frm plystre, it'hav photoshpere... moreUpdated to kitkat 4.4.2 .The UI was always smooth even before 4.3 with its 1.6 ghz clocked quad chipset ,however the benchmarks still matters with kitkat 4.4.2 and yes the more updated software tech is better than the old..
Also Installed flash player today with dolphin browser...however dolphin is still a little laggy than the stock browser...lets hope the devs give some solution soon..
translucent status icons are better the old ones and the transparent status bar is also supported on nova launcher.
Yes,there is a slight screen loss in the edges of the screen ,btw its likly to get resolved with few more updates..
no issues with wifi , bluetooth or any connectivity features
liked the music widget on lock screen
camara focus speed has also increased a bit.
battery life almost same as 4.3
If some apps are not working properly go to GPM & Update those apps.
overall a nice & stable update however cud have been better

Do not try it with my files app. Install x-plore and es file manager. Then create a folder, delete any file, copy a file from phone memory to the memory card within the x-plore and es file manager.
After updating to 4.4.2 we can install GOOGLE CAMERA on note 2 frm plystre, it'hav photoshpere n more options...enjoy guys...
Prajju, 04 May 2014How's the kitkat update?i heard there's no changes at all in update. and its worthless update.... moreI have updated my Note 2 to 4.4.2 ...
new update includes a new lock screen , monochrome status bar... and nothing more... but i am telling you , the phone has become a lot more smoother , smoother than the day i bought the phone 18 months ago...! Its not a worthless upgrade...becausse 4.3 was a mess , lot of bugs and my phone had slowed down...! But after updating to 4.4.2...the phone has became much faster , performance has increased , higher benchmark results...!
Final Words : ITS WORTH UPDATING TO 4.4.2...!
How's the kitkat update?i heard there's no changes at all in update. and its worthless update. its same as old with lil widgets changes n oly 4.3 to 4.4 number changes in setting than nothin else. Samsung is cheating us i guess oly by giving number to the same old firmware. not evn one app in improved or given as like s4 o n3. can anybody tell the difrncs perfectly ?
No noteworthy changes..still no new camera app that debut more than a year ago on S4. Even Mega ando Grands have it but not on note 2.
Forget about floating apps and s-pen features of note 3.
gunbi, 03 May 2014After 4.4.2 update :
On widgets assitive light is replaced by "TORCH" They removed the "settings" widget where we could set individual settings shortcut like battery or software update.
Did anyone notice this..
Anonymous, 03 May 2014I bought Note2 in Asia and working fine there..lately travelling in Europe and could not use i... moreThat the badcthing about Samdung phome. They use regional lock. So Asian region can use with sim in other region. Only thing you can do bring it to Samsung service center to unlock that phone. Now if you are going to come back ti Asia will you have the same problem ?. I stop buying Samsung phone dueto this selfish reason.
