vikas, 19 Feb 2014Is it okay to upgrade to android 4.3? I am still using 4.1. Are there any problem whatsoever? ... moreNot only just updating to 4.3. Your device must get 3 updates of varioud sizes after upgrading to 4.3. Only idle standby time has increased a bit in terms of battery backup.
Just wanted to say that this phone rocks... Bought it in the first few days of its launch and am still using it without any problems at all...
The battery life is good before the 21mb update I was getting 1.5 to 2 days of use with 3 to 4 hours of screen time... But since that update the battery started draining more... so after taking a look at wakelock it turned out an app was going crazy and draining the battery so I uninstalled the app and now the battery seems to last like before... Rite now my screen time is 3hrs with 53% battery remaining and 9 hours since I unplugged the phone from the charger...
I don't care about the few people who say bad things about the phone but the bottom line is that the phone still rocks...
Is it okay to upgrade to android 4.3? I am still using 4.1. Are there any problem whatsoever? Pls let me know.
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2014agree Symbian games may starts take time but after that its goes for hours where as in android... moreN 8 doesn't have a dedicated graphics processor and you should take into consideration the quality of games, Do you own Note or any Android or how many high end games did you played on high end Android. I prefer practical discussion not just biased.
Anonymous, 19 Feb 2014agree Symbian games may starts take time but after that its goes for hours where as in android... moreI don't think you can play games on a mobile for more than 5-6 hours, any high end game can run that well in Note series.

I am trying to make you understand that every OS had their own limits and functionalities and you cannot get same in all. If you are still stuck to old forms you can, but the main reason of not installing the apps in SD was lagging. You can tap on a game in N8 and have a cup of tea till it fully starts, lol. Try to understand the technology, whining like a kid does not make sense that I need blah blah.

Samsung has removed that feature. Samsung has simply released 3 updates* (14 MB + 1.2 GB + 1.2 GB) in which I see no difference after the 1st update which made idle standby time to increase by a meagre amount. Then the two 1.2 GB updates is utter waste. Now can you accept the fact that Samsung is trying to waste customers' internet bandwidth?.
* means - the updates that my device has got
In 4.1.2 I used the app called profile scheduler+ used to automatically switch to flight mode (profile changing)** at a certain time. But the shameless google blocked that also from the 4.3 version onwards. What to you say for this?. Do not simply say "root your phone, root your phone". It is not easy for everyone to do so.
** means - without rooting, in a normal condition
Talking abt battrey backup on normal usage i get 2 to 3 full days ...this is mainly cause of excellent standby time but i dont have to be in flight mode either...and i use data and wi fi when needed...and use it in stock power saving mode when i am not running resource hungry apps....
one thing @ sudhakar needs to understand that we r not saying that note2 or note3 or as a matter of fact any android, wp etc smartphone is a ultimate device we r not saying that there is no scope of improvements in them..even i feel that there cud have been lots of other features on my note2.but i dont get upset allday what i do is send my feedback and suggestions to samsung so the devs can see if they can do something to add that feature.
..i'll give you a eg...with jb 4.1.2 i cud not connect my note2 to my dell bh200 headset for voice calling there was an issue with one of the hands free profile so i sent reported the issue and now with 4.3 i am able to use mu bluetooth for voice calling and it take full advantage of apt x bluetooth audio enchancement on note2 so if u see deeply there will always be a scope of improvement when it comes to technology what we cud do is to help each other and most importantly help devs with our feedbacks to make things better..
no device can be ultimate....and when it come to android , one needs to be a little techey to just use it properly and if u want to use android to its full potential u have to be a excellent thechy...there is no get away if ur uninformed.and don't understand how stuff works with android..enjoy.
