    Default Note 2: Sluggish and slow after 4.3 update

    Anyone else noticing a really drastic change in how the phone operates since updating?

    I find my Note 2 so sluggish and slow to respond along with being somewhat choppy since updating.

    It used to be much more fluent.

    This is why I don't understand all the screaming and crying about updates.

    Have you cleared cache in recovery?

    Here you go. It doesn't matter that it's from T-Mobile--it should be good for any Note 2.

    Thanks, I also downloaded clean master and it has made a noticeable difference. Will it do the same as these steps or should I follow these steps too?

    Edited to correct spelling mistake.

    Clean Master won't clear the system cache partition, so it's still worth doing.

    Sorry about not responding. I was having issues with one of my devices and just went dark on the forums.

    My note 2 is also stupidly slow now. I was hoping it would get better but if anything it's getting worse. I don't think I'll ever buy another Samsung in my life. I HATE this phone now. Hate it.

    Welcome to Android Central! Sorry to hear your phone isn't working well. Is it still slow after the cache partition wipe?

    I am feeling the same and wondering if I can go back to the original state. Update is not always a good thing to do....

    Do a clean wipe. I've done this with 4.3 and I did it again with 4.4. In both instances the difference is dramatic. It's a pain, but it's well worth it. It made my phone feel like brand new. Backup first though.
