    I've been constantly working with mine for over four hours and my battery is at 92%. I keep my screen brightness at 100% all the time.
    Let's deal with the facts and not speculate.

    I've never been able to go that long with the screen on and only lose 8%. actually that sounds incredible, as in impossible.

    perhaps your idea of "constantly working with mine for four hours" is different than what I infer from that statement...

    Exaggerating a little? Anyone that owns a note 2 knows that wasn't even possible before the update

    Look back in this thread where I got the update and later posted about my battery life. I took a shower and ate some lunch.
    I'm off work today and other than that I fed the dog and cats and went to the mail box.
    I have no reason to lie.
    I plugged it up at 91% and now it's at 100%. Check the time of my posts.
    The only time I put it down is to read this forum, post and ****.

    So now your battery is actually charging as you use it instead of draining like most do?

    That's incredible! !!!!

    No no no silly. Ay 12:45 I started messing with changing the widgets on the lock screen. At about 1:30 I plugged it back into the charger at 91%. At about 1:45 it was fully charged.

    I have to say that the update notice on my phone is quite irritating. It's there every time I unlock the phone and then it comes back quite often as I'm using it.

    There used to be an option to defer the update. Is it not there anymore?

    Much better, thank you. I wasn't paying close enough attention.

    I never got a notice new software was available but checked, have the update and deferred it. I have no need to update to a possibly buggy version when my phone is working perfectly and has been for 10 months.

    No, I don't. This is my first S/W update on this phone. Hopefully someone will chime in that knows.

    Per Verizon's update documentation (see the Software Update Instructions pdf): Software Update: Galaxy Note® II by Samsung | Verizon Wireless

    "If you choose "Defer" this will delay installation and you will be taken back to the home screen. The system update message will appear every 30 minutes until you install the update."

    Note: it doesn't mention anything about the "Reject" option though. But its behavior will most likely be similar. At some point though, if you don't happen to catch the next prompt to defer or reject again, it will automatically try to download and install the update.

    246MB (according to that link)?!! Mine is over 700MB!

    Maybe the photo in the link is just a general how-to and not specifically for this update.

    Yeah, it appears the Software Update Instructions pdf hasn't been updated yet. But the defer/reject functionality will most likely still be the same.

    Quick Command is working with the new 4.3 update. I have to say (knock on wood) all is working well! Running Action Launcher and no bugs...nothing.
