    The only quirk I've found so far is when I connect to my home WiFi network, a notification pops up that "unauthorized access to a secure part of the phone has been blocked"

    My WiFi connection is still good and there doesn't seem to be any repercussions other than I have to swipe away the notification.

    I did download and install Knox but I immediately uninstalled it when it became clear that exiting Knox mode was kicking me back to TouchWiz UI instead of Nova Launcher.

    I had that problem with KNOX taking me back to the standard launcher instead of APEX. I fixed that by setting APEX as the default launcher in the APEX settings. Nova also has a setting to do that.

    The problem I had with KNOX was that the Google Keyboard did not work in it so I switched back to SwiftKey which does work. But it does work fine for me for corporate exchange email use.

    I am having similar issues with text messages. In fact most of my contacts do not show up in the recipient list at all. Any help ??
    Mine did the same thing after my update. I closed messaging and opened my contacts, mainly because I was afraid they had disappeared (they hadn't); anyway, I closed contacts and re-opened the messaging all of the names had re-appeared. Good luck and I hope this helps.

    I am rooted on 4.2.2 using the Xposed Framework. After seeing all the issues on 4.3, I will not be updating. This update seems very rushed. Not much benefit in my opinion. I'll wait for the next 4.3 build.
    I'm having no issues at all with mine.

    My Galaxy S4 di the same thing with the phone and contact app.
    the only solution i found was to factory reset, but if you back up everything don't restore the call logs there seems to be a bug where restoring call logs jams up the phone and contacts app causing it to crash.... but otherwise phone is not brilliant.

    Having the exact same issue. Tried force stopping app, erasing cache, reset something... nothing is working. Still pops up in status bar every 5-10 minutes. Really annoying. Not to mention my battery seems to be having the life sucked out of it much quicker than before...
    Delete the music player app. That's what I did and it solved the problem.

    I am not seeing any of the problems I am reading on here, Everything seems okay but one issue I am having. I use folders on my homescreen, and when I open a folder and go to app, get done with the app I am using, press the home key, the folder stays open. It doesn't automatically close like before, I have to press home key again to close folder. It's very annoying, anyone else seeing the same issue?

    I've noticed a little bit of sluggishness so far, but the one main annoyance I have update the update is that home screen folders do not close after opening an item in the folder. Has anyone else run in to that?

    Did the install/uninstall of Knox solve issue of pesky notifications about security? Getting that notification hourly today

    Nope! Neither did clearing the data and cache for Knox Notification. Sounds like only a factory data reset will clear it for good. :-(

    Loved this phone when I got it, but this update is really frustrating.

    - Security warning pops up whenever I connect to WiFi, even after factory reset.
    - WiFi randomly disconnects because secure connection is "unstable," though signal strength is excellent.
    - Folders remain open on home screen even after app is closed, requiring extra click on home button to clear.
    - Battery life dramatically reduced.
    - KNOX installed and can't be removed - more bloatware I don't want/need.

    This update is short on benefits and long on annoyances. Very frustrating.

    I'm updating to 4.3 right now BUT I do plan on factory resetting my phone as soon as it's done updating. I always factory reset after every major OTA update and I usually haven't seen an issue after doing so. Hopefully, the factory reset helps in mitigating most of these issues that you guys are listing.

    Mine did that, too. I deleted all the data in that app and that fixed it.
    I'm also getting an intermittent error code from TuneWiki.
    Had the same problem and that did the trick. Thanks!

    Per Samsung Support USA - no way to have folders closed on homescreen when done with app. So I guess we're stuck with it this way, like it or not (or root).

    With such mixed reviews, sounds like an update to avoid for now. Maybe I should root 4.2.2.

    Ever since the 4.3 update, a lot of my apps keep popping ANR notifications. For example, I've been charging my S4 for an hour or so and when I unlocked it, ANRs kept flooding in. Samsung Push Service, SVoice, etc. Any idea what's happening? :/

    I updated my phone to 4.3 yesterday, and immediately lost the ability to connect to Wi-Fi.

    I'm on business travel, so I don't have access to the routers, but on three separate Wi-Fi networks I get the following error message:

    "Network disabled because internet connection is slow."

    I'd been connecting successfully th these networks for days before the update.
