    I posted this similar comments in another forum. Does anyone notice a tad bit slow performance in this 4.3 update? For example if I am in Facebook app right? If I want to hold down the home button and what happened was it took a while to finally load up the background running apps..it took a bit while which it normally should.. Before the update I was able to hold down the home button and it immediately load up.. As well for any apps you are in and if supposedly you want to quit and go to the home button, it also took a while too!! Its annoying!! Does anyone experience this similar small performance impact?
    I think this is the same as 4.1, I remember have to change something in settings to get the home button to respond immediately when I first bought the phone. Wish I could remember how to fix it for you, but I don't think it has anything to do with the update.

    Just got the upgrade.
    Post here the changes you noticed over 4.1.2.
    Hmm I've noticed a few times I'm seeing 4G on at the same time that I have a strong wifi symbol? That's disturbing. How can I fix that?

    When on the lock screen swipe to the right from the time and a page comes up to add them.
    Can't get this to work on my lock screen. I can see the lock screen outline but it won't scroll... Any ideas?

    Pictures look more clear, they also added slow and fast motion video.
    No they had that since day one. I've used it plenty.

    I've noticed they didn't add the smart stay video pause feature when you look away from the phone. That's the 1 thing I was actually looking forward to. Cuz I watch a lot of YouTube

    Anyone know how to get FoxFi working? Verizon Mobile Data keeps coming up and won't let me use FoxFi for a hotspot.
    I couldn't get the Foxfi hotspot to work but I was able to Bluetooth tether. I had to download pdanet tablet to my tablet and follow the instructions.

    You must not have looked in the settings in the camera app to change it.

    You have to touch the area on the screen with the time when you swipe to the right. You'll see it then

    I haven't.
    But something I got into the habit of doing a few days ago is before I put my Note 2 down, I hold the home button down and close all the active apps.
    I wonder if this is why I get so much better battery life?
    Of course, my Note 2 has always lasted all day since I first got it.

    Battery drain is the same. You all just want something to complain about.

    I'm not a fan of the new calendar setting that shows the option of day, week, month etc. It takes up screen real estate that's unnecessary. Previously there was an icon switch to bring up those selections; now it's there by default. Nothing in settings to get rid of it

    Also, does anyone else notice the font is much larger in messaging than the system font? It looks unusually large. There no font size in messaging settings to change.

    Yes. Works for me with my bad eyesight. A bigger place for pics of who you are texting with too.

    The wifi notification is there. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding you.

    I think you have to enable it in your Settings> Display> Notification Panel.

    One thing I have noticed that maybe someone could explain:
    When I get a text message and it appears on the lock screen, when I tap the message an outline of a box appears on the bottom of the screen with nothing in it. What is this box for?
