AnonD-53316, 24 Nov 2013Clarify which functions are not functioning properly.Disadvantages of 4.3 :
> Add city option (in clock --> world clock) did not work without factory reset. I have updated 4.1.2 to 4.3 without factory reset. There is no rule that we should do factory reset before updating.
> Flight mode and wifi option cannot be controlled by a profile changing software called profile scheduler +.
> 1GB RAM is always occupied even when there are no background apps. 4.1.2 occupied only 600 to 700 MB RAM. It comes to 1 GB after some time even if I clear the bavkground process.
> If I enable WiFi in strong coverage area using the drop down list, it sometimes disconnects and reconnects 4 times before connecting continuously.
> KIES via WiFi is missing in 4.3 (don't say kies air is there).

I am not satisfied with the camera clarity. If you are satisfied,it doesn't mean that all should be satisfied. Understod?.
After 4 days of android 4.3 update, Phone is working fabulously now. Ram usage decresed now,from 1.14 gb to 850 mb. There is no lag now. UI is VERY smooth now,no redraws in scrolling home screens. No lag in opening Apps. Can't say anything about Battery life. Acc to me,ppl who are updating without factory reset ,it will take 2-3 days to fully stabilise ROM. As many new apps added to make Phone faster like TRIM,will work 2-3 days extensively to make phone faster,use RAM more. After that phone works like CHARM. So guys who don't want to factory reset,wait 2 days after updating for ROM to fully stabilise.

AnonD-208194, 23 Nov 2013After update is it worth to buy?Parbinder did not say anything about the camera clarity which proves that this phone has worst camera clarity. LOL LOL LOL.
AnonD-208194, 23 Nov 2013After update is it worth to buy?It depends on your needs, as what are you going to do with Note 2, because if you don't know the capabilities you will repent buying it as Mr. Sudhakar is now complaining whole day on this forum. I am using this set for more than a year and I can say that it is best as I use this as my primary business phone with emails, office documents even invoicing purposes. My kid enjoys kids games I love high end gaming, I have call logs and SMS since the day I bought, it is 14,months, updated to 4.3 with more than 100appz installed not facing any problem. Using Spen for writing messages emails, editing documents etc. Kid enjoys painting better than they do with mouse on laptop. Now you can judge yourself.

AnonD-208194, 23 Nov 2013After update is it worth to buy?If you are not bothered about camera clarity (before and after update), you can buy this phone. But most of the medium to high end android phones (like N7100, S7562) are very good phones for browsing and online texting.

* means some functions are not working properly.
So, I'm finally tired of the wait. And I'm tired of Samsung's treachery. This was an awesome piece of machinery last year when it came. It still is but I think Samsung has been utterly unfair to the SGN II and everyone who shelled hard earned cash for it. I think this is the one phone that has had the worst treatment in terms of updates.
Finally, ICS is here but only a China and India is getting it after almost a week? Shouldn't we in other regions be getting the update by now as well? I've been a faithful Samsung person since Nokia went the way of Windows Phone but now I really don't know. Maybe their success is getting to their heads. Time for a switch to Ericsson or Huawei, perhaps? Or worse still, Blackberry? I'm really disappointed with Samsung's attitude to this brilliant phablet.
My next phone will definitely not be a Samsung, I can confidently say that. Shame on you, Samsung. You've treated SGN II owners shabbily.
