gunbi, 03 May 2014@parag : can u mention the difference between both??It means that the 416MB is the new data needed on top of the existing android 4.3.or android 4.2 firmware already installed on ur phone...means there r lots of things like apps etc ..u already have in ur phone and they do not require any changes..that is why the file size is small.
& the 1.2gb is a total firmware with everything included.
btw its no rocket science..
gunbi, 03 May 2014Got Updated to 4.2.2 kitkat via OTA....from kerala (thrissur)don't get the update of 4.4.2 via OTA I am from kollam....
UPDATE MY NOTE 2 with 1.2 gb file downloaded from sammobile.com
phone is buttery smooth.
battery life has increased by 20% approx
nothing new in the ui except for the white status bar icons.
there is something wrong with the screen with this update.
there is some gap between the bezel and the edge (rt and lt) of the screen.can be seen while using dark wallpapers or black wallpapers.
hope samsung knows this and correct it with update.
did anyone else noticed this?
Ive been using this phone since day one it was released and can assure you that it does NOT have a Corning Gorilla glass and period.
Nothing new in this kitkat update.
just minor changes.
Samsung should have atleast addede some features of s4 and note 3...or atleast dey would hav addede the note 3 camera app.
tell me guys one thing...
do you find any changes from the factory installed 4.1.1..
no UI changes...no features of successor s4 or note 3..
samsung is so pathetic in updating there device..
Although m a proud owner of note 2.
hav been using since 18 months..no lag..no slowdown...
smooth as brand new..
DK, 03 May 2014I got d update but I hv not yet installed it
Plz let me knw whether we cn move apps from ph... moreYou can do that from 4.2.2 onwarsds. But not for all apps.
You cannot copy, move files and folders from phone memory to the memory card using any 3rd party apps like x-plore, es file manager etc. You cannot create files or folders in the memory card using the 3rd party apps. You also cannot copy / move files within the memory card when the card is inserted in the phone.
To all :
Do not try with just my files app and post here (in favour of android). Try it with 3rd party apps and then post here.
Panku, 03 May 2014its working same as it's before. we are able to transfer data phone to memory card also. I clearly mentioned using 3rd party apps. Not using my files app. Try it with ea file explorer and x-plore.
MRooney, 03 May 2014Did you update sudhakar?Yes. Sick of 4.4.2. I think future upgrades are limiting the features. I will not upgrade anymore.
Hamshari, 03 May 2014Thats wrong i can do any of these options freely without any lag, it's a personal issue.Try it with the app called x-plore. I am not talking about the default explorer (my files).

Enjoying the update :-).

Radio app's UI is wonderful now.
Battery life is same as before (its good).

I can move files from sd card to ext sd card and vice versa (which i worried much). No problem found so far.
Its good to be updated cause latest tech always give us improved and more sofisticated life. So be updated.
