    Do we get to access the camera directly from the lock screen as stated on the upgrade screen? Can't see how to do it if so.

    Downloaded and installed here. There's no great differences that I've noticed so far. It's perhaps a tad more responsive but the battery doesn't seem to last quite as long as previously. Apart from that I've had no problems.

    Settings > Device > Lock screen > Shortcuts.

    But it does get rid of app Shortcuts if you have them.

    Same here, another spanish user happy to be reporting the upgrade went by successfully.

    unfortunately, seems that it wasn't enough to completely shake frame drops out of the note 3, but I do see some improvement.

    Thanks. Figured it out now. Can't have any security on or you don't get the option. It doest seem to bypass it like ios does. Shame.

    Battery life apparently better here too, but I hate that Android KitKat ruined the wake lock detector apps I was using.

    As for the rest, I must say the difference in performance is more significant than I expected. The way the phone wakes up, unlocks, starts apps and how smooth everything is now is certainly an improvement.

    By the way, any fix to the SD card problem? Seems like writing to it with anything not Samsung fails, but I simply cannot stand the Samsung file manager... Anybody knows how to fix this?

    I have the update available on O2, don't think I'll update yet though with all the problems other users are having.

    I have noticed a huge difference in battery consumption when location settings are set to accurate, which is a must for navigation. When set to power saving, it seems to be better at managing the battery, but with high accuracy, it seems to be way worse than with android 4.3.
