    After you've installed it and ran it for a day or so let us know if everything still functions correctly. I'm concerned with any SD card issues and battery drain issues. Hopefully they got most of the bugs out before the OTA. Mine hasn't arrived for my Note 3 yet. At least I know the rollout has started.

    Wow awesome! It's 2:00 AM here on the west coast, just checked my software update setting on my phone and it started downloading the 495.74 MB file which will apparently take upwards of forty minutes? Yikes. I'm on a 18mbs connection. Hmm.

    Will update later when it downloads. Exciting though!

    Kewl.

    White notification icons.
    Full sreen album art on lockscreen, plus a camera shortcut on lockscreen.
    Notification panel is a bit cleaner; pastel color scheme seems to be used (as we see in the GS5's softer blue), and lighter font weight is used.
    New stock keyboard running a darker theme.
    Everything seems to be running a bit smoother than when on 4.3 Really *really* snappy!
    Window animations are now akin to those on Nexus devices (no longer TouchWiz animations).
    My Magazine... is nowhere to be found! It is no longer triggered by pressing the home button when on your default homescreen.

    Okay well I have a gs4 for T-Mobile and I'm tired of waiting for the update... This post gave me a little bit of false hope.

    Bug report: battery drain is annoying. Dies about twice the speed. It's charging about half the speed too. Them there's the writing issue with SD. You can access files but can't write anything to the SD. I think they removed some audio codecs too because some of my music isn't playing. The best part of all is that it will not let me root or flash any other Rom (official or not) on to my now. I filed and insurance claim and am gonna brick this when the refurbished arrives. Hoping the refurb has 4.3.

    Every time I read about a KitKat upate, I get disturbing results. I'm wondering if the reason Verizon is taking so long to release the update because of it not being completely finished. Also has anyone tried doing the KitKat update, but removing the SD card first? with the Blackberry Lagacy devices this was a must to maintain proper SD functions. I'm not sure I want to upate until ALL the bugs are worked out. My Verizon G'Note3 is running nice and smooth.

    Ok, I did the update yesterday and it seems to be running much better overall. It is faster and I get better reception.......no joke. One thing I noticed on the battery drain issue, before the update the highest percentage of use was from the display, now after the update my it goes Android System, Android OS, Lookout, THEN Screen.......?

    I noticed my battery draining a little quicker myself... but for the sd card write issue it seems like it's only 3rd party file managers that don't work. If you use the stock file manager that comes with your Note you can write files just fine.

    I just ordered a replacement. T-Mobile said it will have 4.3. I can't do my phone dying in 6 hours. I work 12 hours a day.

    After the update to KitKat 4.4 the "home" button on N900T no longer working with Spigen Slim Armor View. The home button used to work when the view cover was closed; however, it does not work with the cover closed since the update was applied.

    I had the same problem. Shutting down the phone, removing and replacing battery and then restarting the phone helped me. Now I get better battery life than before.

    Bugs to report: excessive battery drain and didn't get the KitKat interface - left with TouchWiz. Had to install a KitKat simulation launcher from the PlayStore to get an interface close to KitKat.

    Now if the SD card bug also exists then KitKat has destroyed my two main reasons for buying a Note 3 - mad crazy battery time and useful sd card. Before Kitkat I would charge to 100% in early evening and still have a charge percentage in the 90s by midmorning the next day using wi-fi - this morning I had 24% left so something is radically wrong. BTW Google says the battery drain bug is a manufacturer problem.. I heard Samsung had agreed going forward to leave Android closer to the stock experience so I wonder whether we have been sold out for the sake of Google's quest for Android purity.
