    Saw a post on MobileSyrup that Rogers will be releasing KitKat "soon" for the Galaxy S4 and Note 3. Yeah!

    Well, soon for Rogers likely means within the next couple months, but I'll post when it finally shows up.

    Yeah, I won't get my hopes up for it, "soon" will probably be the end of March or something.

    Update currently downloading!

    Excellent update! Very smooth and with a few graphical changes. No apps were missing after installing, but Samsung's keyboard loses emojis. Google's Keyboard has a whole list and has them updated and looking 3D and on par with the iOS emojis. Awesome upgrade all-around! And battery is great so far, I'm going to drain to zero tonight and charge fully, just to give it a good cycle, then report back with updates in battery life.

    Hey folks.
    If I am not rooted, and just using Nova Launcher... when I do the update, will it keep my Nova setup, or will it default back to CheezeWhiz and I have to start over with Nova ? I know that I can do a backup with Nova just in case, but I'm just curious. In the MobileSyrup comments, a couple of users who updated had issues with WiFi (for one user, once WiFi was out of range, the carrier data radio wouldn't kick in without doing a restart) Probably, just a one off glitch, but wondering if anybody else noticed any issues ? My phone could definitely use a shot of Red Bull... it slowed down quite a bit even with Nova so I will definitely update this weekend. Might be a good idea for me to factory reset after the update and start over from scratch... clean up the apps and "unclog" my phone.

    I'd recommend backing up your data and doing a factory reset before taking the update. When loading apps and data back to the phone, decide what you really need and what isn't really needed or used very often. A lighter load should help it perk up!

    Thanks for the tip. I updated before reading your reply and so far so good
    It definitely sped up my phone ! Might not need to do a reset after all.

    Can anybody confirm the SD-card functionality? In a sense that it's a bad as they have said here KitKat and SD cards — what's fixed, what's broken and what's misunderstood | Android Central?

    I haven't seen any difference. Exactly the same as before for me anyways.

    So I bit the bullet and updated. I have noticed a few glitches, and I wonder if anyone else has noticed the same thing.

    1 - My power button and the home button occasionally do not respond. If the screen shuts off while I am in the middle of waiting for an application to load, and I press the power button, or the home button, the screen will not turn on immediately, and I have to go through a process of pressing one then the other several times before I can get it to turn on again.

    2 - The lock screen seems to be slower to respond then before the update.

    3 - I use Kingsoft Documents for work, and it seems that now all my spreadsheet documents will no longer load, and the spreadsheet part of the program itself will not work. (That is most likely something I have to go to Kingsoft directly, as it may no longer be compatible with 4.4, but the rest of the program works fine.

    Overall, I haven't noticed much difference. Although I did prefer the green battery icon at the top of the screen as apposed to the white with the update.

    I've been getting terrible battery life since the update. Laggy apps and getting stuck with a black screen for the lockscreen. So annoying
    Have you tried clearing the cache and rebooting?

    I got the update and can no longer answer calls - I can make outgoing calls. Pushing the hardware button doesn't work. I called Rogers and did a factory reset to no avail. Any ideas?

    I called Rogers again and talked to a gal from Manila - I talked to her from a land line and she correctly trouble-shooted my problem. It was a swipe to the right on the green icon. Before you call me stupid I've been using this phone for one year using the hardware button to answer. Still, if the swipe gesture always was then I feel like a complete a**, if you know what I mean. 😥

    Cleaned my cache, formated and removed the SD card before the update. Everything works just as before and if anything - I'm kinda disappointed by lack of any changes/real improvements. Battery life is about the same (which is still worse than on my previous iPhone 4 after 3 years) despite using the power-saving mode and disabling all crap-ware.

    Give the battery see days to settle in. Chances are good you're playing with your phone more then normal. Give it a full week before getting too excited about battery life.
