    The way I understand it is that apps can't be moved to the SD card with KitKat 4.4. I have all my photos, music, and documents stored on the SD card now with 4.4 and they work fine. I moved all my apps back to phone storage before I updated to 4.4 and I stll have lots of storage left on my 16g Note 2. Of course I don't have tons of apps on my phone as I eliminated the ones I really didn't use frequently.
    Thats what I did too

    One of the big changes we got was changing of GPS to Location on the task bar. Its annoying because if you turn on maps and then want to turn on GPS you hit location and it brings you to the location menu which gives you levels of location services (high accuracy/wifi/gps only). This isnt a bother but when you want to turn gps off you cant just click on the location item like you used to with gps because then it turns off your location services and apps that rely on your location to not work. It actually got less intuitive. Sigh...
    This. This sucks. What they did with gps/location just blows.

    I got 4.4.2 ota this morning when I woke up. (northern Virginia) So far I notice the white icons in the task bar, and gps now says location instead of gps. it appears to run a tad bit faster then 4.3, but not 100% sure yet. My galaxy gear finally works properly, I'm getting all notifications and the proximity feature that unlocks your phone automatically when you are within a foot from the phone and then locks the phone when you get 5ft away is working flawlessly. Before I use to have to wave the watch in front of the phone for it to pick it up.

    I've also noticed the lock screen looks a little different and now allows you to launch the camera, messaging, browser and phone directly from the lock screen. When you don't pick a default app to perform certain tasks and you always choose an app manually and choose just once, now it remembers your last choice and will highlight it. However you'll still get to manually pick your app until you choose a default app for the task. There is also a few more setting options. When you pull down your notification tray by default the tray shows from the bottom up, so basically you see your notification without having to scroll down. When listening to music, the album art is full page and looks very nice.

    Issues that I've seen and not sure it it's the update or not but my note 2 has frozen 3 times and restarted by itself when I had several apps running. The biggest problem I have is for some reason my Samsung account won't sync anymore! I get an error message saying "sync is currently experiencing problems, will be back shortly. And my last sync was 5 minutes before I updated to 4.4.2! Will update with further analysis when I have more time with it.

    Mine has always been blue and black on my note 2, I think it has to do with the version of touchwiz. Both the s4 and note 3 have white phone dialers

    I believe you are right, I'm thinking it's Touch Wiz as well. Thanks for the input. 👍

    I have been having problems with my Samsung keyboard crashing and it will not stay connected to my Ford Sync radio for more than 10 min.
    Anyone else having issues like this?

    Update ** I was having problems getting my Samsung account to sync after the 4.4.2 update, I did a factory reset but that didn't help. Finally after a few days this morning the Samsung account magically sync! Hooray! Guess all is well now. I was also able to download the apk for s-health 3.1 and after installing and uninstall 3 times got it to be fully functional and integrated with my Samsung account and Galaxy gear on a Note 2!
