    Default Reset your note 3 after kitkat.

    I reset mine last night and apps lol completely different. Phone seems much faster and less cluttered. I kept wondering why some apps didn't look the same on my wife's note 3. Now I know.

    i have found that a factory reset after any major OS update is a good idea.

    Cool. Sometimes a simple cache clear does wonders, too.

    Does clearing cache wipe the phone like a factory reset?

    Will a cache clear remove anything from my phone? Or will I lose anything?

    Nope. Just system data which is not user data.

    Ok quick question I'm thinking about reseting my note 3, will I lose all my pictures on and off my SD card? I'm not worried about the apps I can just re download them

    If you have tons of apps on your Note like I do, I wipe the cache every so often to keep thing running as smooth as possible. Also after Updates as well. I'm not a factory reset person with so much stuff on my phone to replace.

    This. A factory reset seems like way too much work for me. The cache clear is relatively painless and improved my post kit kat better life

    The kitkat update cleared the cache automatically after the reboot.

    Why won't some videos play after the update?

    I tried this to get rid of the KitKat update pop up....didn't work. I'm afraid the only way to get rid of the annoying KitKat update pop up is to actually install this...this update. Does anyone know how to STOP the pop up?

    I read a message from Samsung that when you are notified of the update it will send you a notification every 30 minutes if you denie it
    and will continue until you download it!
    I don't think you have a choice!

    Mine downloaded yesterday and so far it seems just fine.
    A little more RAM, the battery seems to last a little longer.
    It added 3 new apps.
    So far it seems to be running great!

    All of the bugs in 4.3 are fixed.... if the only drawback is some 3rd party apps can't access the sd card I can live with that... probably safer that way anyway maybe that will keep my sd card from randomly corrupting

    The update caused me to lose my pics except for 7 of them. I am very mad over this. Didn't harm my music

    I finally updated to KitKat last night (couldn't take the "pop up" anymore). It's NOT as disappointing as I thought it might be....I like it (smile). So far so GOOD, I've had none of the problems that I have read about (knocking on wood). I like the white battery icon in the notification bar and the other little enhancements that KitKat brings. It's to early to comment on the battery, but I will be keeping a close eye on my Note3 in the comig days as with any OS update.

    I agree and so far on my phone, I see no reason for a reset! It's running fine.
