    Morning people.

    KitKat for the Galaxy Tab3 8" (4.4.2kitkat) is NOW available for download in the UK and Portugal (250614)

    I DIDN'T get a notification this morning, but I simply went Settings>About Device>Software update>Check for update, and there it was.

    693Mb ready for download.

    Enjoy

    NB/
    I believed that the Camera would be available from the lock/front screen, and also that "Okay Google" command would be available from the home scree. Neither of these are so :-(

    Anyway...

    Don't know what the "roll out" schedule is Brosko. Samsung will not release any information.
    It was released to our "French neighbours" last week, and finally arrived here (and Portugal) today.

    Anyway.. You've got Google Glass! ;-))

    Got my update this morning in Chicago. The apps stored on the SD card were missing the icon, but removing the app from the home screen and then putting it back fixed and it.

    apps still work from the SD card.
    The touch screen is glitchy.

    Maybe it's because my tab is the UK version. didn't think that would make a difference.

    Downloaded the French version from SamMobile last week and installed on my US tab.
    The only problem of course was 4.4.2 screws up the use of the ExtSD card. I rerooted and installed the app from Google Play to restore full use of the ExtSd.

    No Problems yet

    OK. I've had KitKat on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 for over a day now and here are the pros and cons.

    Pros: None

    Cons: it's slower, screen freezes, touch interface doesn't always work. Some apps don't work from the SD card.

    Wish I'd never updated it.

    Well after seeing the start of this thread I updated my Tab 3.8.0 which took 45 minutes but I dont have time to play with it too much as its 1.00 am here in the UK. It did drop my battery level from 86% to 27% after the install but turning Tab off and on again resumed battery level. Will have time to play tomorrow so will report back then with any problems but none at present.

    Well after just 3 hrs of using the kit kat update I am seriously not impressed. It has changed the way a lot of games work for the worse, decreased the functionality of my email and locked me out of my skype account. Have not noticed anything that has improved but at least I am not having problems with my touch screen as some have mentioned. If only I could go back to Jellybean.

    After messing with download everything seems good except video app keeps crashing. Anyone else having this problem? Other then that it seems great even my screen seems crisp and brighter. Everything seems to be moving smooth. I did notice more RAM is being used now dont understand why its suppose to use less with this update
