S . SUDHAKAR, 29 Dec 2013My device (India) got a massive, useless 1.2 GB unknown update via KIES 3.xx.xxx on 28th Decem... moreAre you using a Windows 8 system as I am experiencing a similar issue. Whenever I try to update via Kies it downloads a huge file on my 2 Mbps connection which I've never completely downloaded. Whereas OTA update is only a small file. I've figured it might be because of Windows 8.1.
Also my phone was very laggy at times, used to hang after I receive a call. It was because of Truecaller app which I uninstalled today and now my Note 2 is working amazingly better.

I got 1.2 GB update which took 8 hours in 512 Kbps (64 KB/s) stable connection. I set the temp files partition as 1.5 GB. But the samsung updater said that free space was not enough. So I changed the temp files path and started to update.
Looks same. Battery standby time only improved (10% to 20% extra standby time). No other changes. Waste.
I think Samsung is planning to waste users' bandwidth quota.

My device (India) got a massive, useless 1.2 GB unknown update via KIES 3.xx.xxx on 28th December 2013. It took 8.5 hours to download on a 512 Kbps stable broadband.
It got installed on 29th Dec 2013 at 02:30 AM Indian time.
Before my device got 14 MB unknown update (after upgrading to 4.3).
So after getting 4.3 :
1) 14 MB update
2) 1.2 GB massive useless update.
Battery has improved only a bit. Looks like samsung has gone mad providing 1.2 GB update.
