    It is great for those looking for more current updates. Myself, it really makes no difference as I don't buy into the update game (OS or apps) as it too frequently breaks stuff and causes problems. I prefer the axiom "If it ain't broke....". It's one major reason I root and freeze the OTA updater to stay on existing firmware (wish Google/Android gave us a native way to do that without needing root). As to newer software, I'll look for it on new devices when the time comes.

    Good to hear but honestly... Me being on Verizon... I'll believe it when I see it. I'll remain skeptical up until that point.

    You're getting it regardless of carrier. You may get it later than others, but I don't see why you wouldn't get it at all.

    I am not updating since this will break my wi-fi tether.

    Well, i gues i'm skipping this one. Because the external SD-card is restricted. Got a 32GB card, i do want to keep it.
    I do am happy with the 4.3 completely. 4.4.2 would be nice, but only if the SD-Card is not restricted.

    How is an android update going to stop us from using a 32GB card on a non-Nexus device??

    Well i guess i will wait it out. But i really use the SD-card.
    I keep my eyes on the Solid Explorer, which i use. In the mean time, i disabled the auto update feature.
    With the 4.3 it's already better than the original firmware, i don't have any issues and am happy about it. I would love the 4.4, but really need the SD-card function.

    I also watch the youtube channel, "the daily note 2 and 3" which test every feature of the upgrades on the Note 3 and 2. Great channel.

    I couldn't be leave that samsung would implement or take over this from the source files. Because all their phones has an sd-card slot. But it was true for the Note 3 and S4 updates.
    I have not yet found a official response from Samsung on this issue.
