    I had so much trouble with kit kat it was unreal. First note 3 would not update to it. Got it replaced. Second one did and it was nothing but trouble. A lot of random reboots. Etc!!! Att tried to wipe it and put 4.3 back but that wouldn't even work. Finally replaced that one with a new one with 4.3 and been running smooth again. They did say the note 3 and Galaxy mega are having a bad time running kit kat. There working on a fix.

    I think it has ruined my phone.. I might go talk to att about getting another phone or something. Should have just stayed with 4.3.

    That was my experience. Some people update fine. I'm happy on 4.3

    Yea.. I'll post a screen shot of my usage later this evening. But battery, email, service dropping, not getting service, ram usage is more than Jb, having to charge my phone during the day. Which never happened on Jb.

    yes please elaborate, I would never go back to Jellybean 4.3! Worst OS EVER!!!!! Totally sucked on my note 3, everything as of now runs great on my note 3 since the kitkat update, I only charge my phone every other day with moderate to HEAVY use! No issues, or problems on my end. What seems to be the problem, maybe you have an app that prevents the phone from sleeping or a run away app. I got those all the time on my Galaxy S3

    Not me. It fixed my WiFi issues and I have no other problems. I did stop Lookout from running as it seems to be a large battery hog but other than that. I'm good.

    I do have to charge mine during the day some to ensure it lasts ALL day but then I have my screen turned up to 100% brightness (old eyes) and I have BT, WiFi, NFC and other things runing all the time. This is how I use my phone and I'm not going to compromise just so I can say I didn't have to charge it. Typically without charging, I can go maybe 14-16 hrs running like this. I only throw it on the charger in case I don't go straight home from work.

    I have had iPhone 4s for 2.5 years and lately I've been dying to get a phone with a big screen (like s5 or Note 3) but all these KitKat problems people have been having makes me want to wait it out till they get them all fixed.

    Keep in mind that you typically see an in proportionate amount of problems on a forum like this. Mine updated and is much better than before.

    Along that same line people don't generally post when everything works well.

    I am going on two weeks with my Note on Kit Kat and have not experienced any issues at all. The phone works flawlessly just minor normal Android issues. The battery life is great but you need to watch what apps are eating your battery and ones that run in the background that are never used. I am a heavy user and I get 12 hours from my battery with ease!

    When I had the AT&T Note 3 it update just fine, no issues at all. The only reason I returned it was to wait for the GS5 32GB to arrive. Just checked out the 16GB GS5 today and honestly other than a few UI changes and an updated processor I am not sure the GS5 32GB is worth waiting for, I may just get the GN3 again and then upgrade next year to either the GN4 or GS6.

    Is it normal for my phone to say:

    Software update interrupted.
    No update is available for your device etc etc

    I'm starting to think my phone is incapable of downloading the KK update ota. Or is this what everyone sees when no update is available (even though KK is out there &#128542

    Some people did have issues downloading it. My suggestion would be to either hit up att/best buy for them to update it, or try Samsung Kies.

    Have done all of the above except AT&T. Best Buy Samsung desk did not have it available to load but that was a couple of weeks ago. For such a killer phone I find it really lame that I might have to take it to AT&T or Best Buy to have an update installed.

    Samsung Kies wouldn't do it?

    No, unless I'm doing something wrong. I downloaded Kies 3 on my computer and it doesn't give me any indication. Anywhere specific I should look?? I'm new to all this so thanks for the advice.

    Open up Kies and make sure it is current. Click on tools at the top and then select "Firmware Upgrade and Initialisation" Then fallow the prompts. It should also tell you connect your phone on the basic info screen if it is current firmware.

    Yeah, I've done that. No luck.
