    How is it that the s4 gets tap to pay from Google wallet but the note 3 didn't get it

    Posted via Android Central App
    Oh really? The Google tap to pay setting is in the settings menu? I'm downloading the update now so I haven't used it yet. Just checking to see if anyone is reporting any glaring issues.

    Apparently this update is pretty stable.....I don't see a lot of teeth gnashing and pitchforks and torches in the field.......so I am going to go ahead and download it.

    Do it! No bugs really...SD works fine...signal is significantly better than before and there aren't any major changes to cause issues.

    Is the signal indicator merely showing a higher signal, or is the raw signal strength in decibels higher? Bars are one thing, but real signal strength is another.

    When playing music (I've tested Rocket Player, Pandora, and the stock Music app) the album art will fill your whole lockscreen with larger skip and play buttons.

    After the update, I noticed I can't hide apps. It did before from the 4.3 version.

    Taken from comments section here Android 4.4 update for Samsung Galaxy S4, Note 3, likely to cause microSD problems
    The Note 3 and GS4 use different NFC chips. The Note 3 uses NXP chips while the GS4 uses Broadcom. Right now, host card emulation (the proper name for Android's "tap and pay" functionality) is only supported on Broadcom chips. Sprint's Galaxy Note 3 works with Google Wallet, but that's because it has a different NXP chip than other Note 3 variants. The Sprint version has a secure element onboard, thus eliminating the need for host card emulation altogether.

    I like the new music lock screen however my exchange email won't sync now. It keeps saying "Master sync is turned off" even though sync is checked in the mail settings. Frustrating situation.

    Make sure you have Sync turned on in your power toggles (area in notification screen where you can turn on/off wifi, bluetooth, etc.)

    Thanks for help, it worked. I always had it off before though and I usually just pressed refresh in the email app to get it to work. Thanks.

    Higher raw signal strength and faster up and down stream speeds

    That's weird. I saw that it was supposed to improve the actual signal strength, but my mom's S4 only gets -96dbm, while I get -81dbm. Both the same exact model, same location. Don't see why there would be such a big difference there

    Did you try flashing stock firmware to get rid of the custom status? Or TriangleAway?

    Is it always like that? I'd flick airplane mode on then off to make sure they're both on the same tower.

    Not sure. I'll have to try it later, but that could be it.

    I noticed the same thing. Before I started the update, I had 2 bars from my home. Now I have 4. I wonder what's real?
    I noticed I'm getting a better signal whereas before I was not

    All I did was go into Play and search for one of the apps that had disappeared in order to reinstall it. It showed up as installed, so I backed out and went into the area where all apps are displayed (as opposed to my pages) and there they were. All I had to do at that point was drag them back. YMMV. :-)
