    As sad as it is. ..we all know this won't stop many of us from buying the next Gen notes...they are just too much of a solid phone

    Sent from my Note 2
    Couldn't agree more...and everyone is complaining ....smh..please check the percentage of devices on 4.1.2..... now after u have done that...stop crying. Enjoy the phone u have...its been said before and I'll repeat it..if updates is your #1 priority buy a nexus. ..u have a phone packed with tons more features than vanilla offers ...so use it for what it is and be happy!!! Again just my opinion.

    It's been said before and I'll repeat it... updates are necessary when you experience bugs introduced by Samsung. Google "note 2 WiFi issue" and see just how many people experience bad WiFi since 4.1.2. Being stuck on 4.1.2 unless you root isn't fun.

    This mentality that we have to accept everything is ridiculous. Why do we have to bend over for these rich companies? They should be providing a service. One update a year doesn't cut it when security hole and bugs just pile up instead of being fixed.

    Security issues and bugs should get updates. One update a year should be left for new features.

    Now my friend you make 100% sense.. security fixes and bugs should be updated asap...I will agree all the way with that..
    But to those complaining just because they wan 4.2.2 ...smh to me .Again I.m.o its silly.. there isn't that much of a difference to say ...oh samsung is horrible... another I seen "im done with the note" ....smh .....what? Really?

    But the security and bugs should be fixed...but that doesn't have to be done by 4.2.2 or 4.3 .... people are tooo caught up in the hype

    If you have bad Wi-Fi, that's what warranty is for... a lot of ppl miscommunicate bad Wi-Fi for the carrier bloatware smart Wi-Fi crap anyway...

    If we skip 4.2..... oh la dee effing da. We'll get the features when we upgrade to key lime.... And if you are that impatient, go root. It doesn't hurt my feelings

    At least it's not like the other phones that have stopped updates.... "oh but I think my phone deserves android 17.2, tiramisu"

    ^^ THIS.

    Samsung officially acknowledged the accessibility issue that renders some of the more 'unique' apps on the Play Store such as LED flow for example, almost useless as the TalkBack bug kicks in when apps require accessibility priveliges.

    That acknowledgement was months ago now. Why they couldn't release incremental updates to address bugs is beyond me.

    I'm annoyed at them. Coming from iPhone,, we always got updates. Regardless... This is just bleh , not making me happy lol not sweating it but it may be what will stop me from ferreting s new Samsung.
    I get new phones not because of updates but basically because I like what's under the hoodc etc.
    I am not going back to iPhone but Samsung leaves us high and dry... I may just not burger again. Im sure they won't miss me lol

    Apparently you didn't Google the WiFi bug. It's a known issue whether you like it or not. Depending on the circumstances you either have to root and install the 4.1.1 WiFi drivers or go into the dial menu (not normal settings) and turn off the power saving mode every reboot.

    Again, it's a known bug. It needs to be fixed, but we don't get small updates to fix these sort of bugs. That's pathetic on Samsung's part. They don't fix bugs as they are too concerned about new devices.

    It's not the only bug either. Clipboard bug anyone? Can Google that too, though I'm sure if you've never experienced it on your device you'll just go to the warranty line...

    Samsung makes good phones, but their support is abysmal.

    That said, I don't find the report credible,
    I don't think there even is a report (that originates from Samsung), is there? It's all just speculation and rumors.

    Even the original article refers to it as a rumor.

    And you know these things work - one source reports on the rumour then before you know it a handful of other sources are running with the same story. Don't get me started on how clueless Australian carriers are about handsets or firmware - they are at the mercy of Samsung too.
