    After the update I can still bypass the lock screen and access apps if I time it right.

    I was able to do this too; Samsung lock screen bypassed entirely with clever, meticulous trickery | Android Central gave me the steps to do it. By the way we're still able to bypass the lock screen, the security glitch was obviously not fixed yet. My phone was already snappy before I updated (as expected), so I didn't notice too much of a difference in speed after updating, but the Wi-Fi improvement was immediately noticeable to me. Let's hope that this update fixed the auto-rotation bug that was introduced after the multi-window update.

    After the update, google now crashes consistently if I configure my sports teams. I have to delete the cache and data in google search (settings -> applications) and reconfigure everything except sports teams for it to work. Not a great update.

    The screen sometimes does not auto-rotate when the setting is enabled. This issue started since the multi-window update.

    I've had the occasional app that locks the screen into landscape until you reopen it or kill it. Also, do you have smart rotation on?

    Both Wifi and Moible Data are significantly faster after the update! I am talking about 30 to 60% faster! Either they are really faster or they did something to trick the SpeedTest app.

    My auto rotate is still broken since first update. Its kind of annoying after dealing with it after 6 months and it still has not been fixed. I thought Samsung was better at fixing things. This is the biggest pet peeve with this phone.

    Im gonna bring it to Att and see if they can send it in for a warranty exchange.

    My Android central app is all buggy now and crashes constantly.

    I got the update and didnt notice anything. I had issues with wifi speeds getting slow after being used. Id have to toggle wifi on and off for it to work properly. Data speeds were fine. But my wifi speed went from 2-3 mbps download to 1 upload. After toggling it off then on again and testing it out it would be at 18-22 to 6-8 mbps. I lm having a new phone sent back for warranty.

    For those ppl who have the wifi issue try toggling the wifi and test it again. Also my ping time was very slow when this would happen.

    Yup, been having this problem since I got the note2 in january 2013. Toggling is the only way it'll work. Don't bother with sending it in; this problem is widespread and you can find a number of posts in the forum. It's a combo of 4.1.2 and the note2. It's having a crap time of handshaking with the new routers. I've gotten used to toggling wifi now, could probably do it while the note2 is still in my pocket everytime i walk in wifi range.

    What this update really does is prevent AT&T users from using the S-Pen without a special data plan

    Sorry

    just had to throw that out there

    You need a data plan to have this phone anyway. Having this phone without a data plan is like having a Ferrari without gas in it.

    Wifi!! I've had my Note 2 for 6 months and have yet to use even half a gig of data in any month. The only place I don't have a wifi connection is in the car, and I don't use the phone when I'm driving. Music is on the SD.

    I would venture to say that the majority of people with this phone use more than that.

    AFAIK, most, if not all, official updates, whether from Samsung, or from your mobile carrier, will not install if either (1), your device is rooted, and /or (2) if the flash counter shows greater than 0 (maybe 1 on some devices, also).
