    Why is Verizon blocking my free Hotspot capability? Maybe they need hit with another fine to remove few million $$$ from their pocket!

    don't tell me--yet another way to pay?

    Yeppers.

    Also the bloatware Viewdini? Open it up and it says service stopped in October and it would be removed in next update, which of course it wasn't.

    What is this delay people talk about? I'm not seeing it.
    Reading this message, hit the "home" button. There's a slight delay before it returns you to the home screen. It's very so slight and sounds like it's just being overblown, but it does seem to be present *on my phone* as well.

    What is this Samsunng Updates Icon that I'm finding on my homescreen? I click on it and it does nothing, it also is not listed in the app drawer.

    I'm glad I'm not the stupid one that had not seen it. Its not a delay, its like a transition like a video camera back in the day. At least I don't have any lag on my phone that I can tell. Seems pretty smooth and responsive. Sorry if you have problems people.

    Been there for a while. I thought it is put on when you install the samsung app store but I probably am wrong.

    I don't have 4.3 yet but just trying to help out with this "delay". Could it be a transition effect? One of the first things I do when I get a phone is to turn on Developer Options and turn off all animations- makes the phone seem super fast. Maybe try that and see if that makes the delay go away.

    I am so glad someone brought up the home button delay.. I still experience it since and had no ideas how to make it go back the way it was before on 4.1.2.. Anyone find out how yet? Also I found out that the developer option is removed but its hidden.. Go to about phone, tap 'Build number" 7 times and the option will show up in the setting list.. That's weird.. But I rechecked and nothing in there that will make the home button to respond delay..

    Do you know any more secrets?

    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

    I googled.. .. Because I noticed developer option is removed after the update (to 4.3) and I googled... so this is what I discovered.. I'm not a genius or anything but yeah I snitched around XD..

    - - - Updated - - -

    So nobody found out how to fix the home button delay?

    apparently EVERYONE. foxfi + 4.3 = no go at the present time according to other threads
    Just went 4,3 and checked foxfi.... Working fine on mine. Noticed Blocking Mode has been added in settings. Before update I had to use Quickshortcutmaker to access it.

    I don't know about anybody else, but even before the update I was using Nova Launcher which, imo, is an improvement over the stock launcher. And now after the update things fly right along. I see no lag or home button delay

    I have been using Nova launcher ever since note2 came out. I am laggy after update. When i go to open an app, it sits for many seconds before opening. Also when pulling down notification window etc.

    Yes, but now you can uninstall Viewdini.

    I use Apex Launcher Pro and maybe that could explain my pleasure with 4.3.
    My battery life is at least as good as 4.1.2 and I believe my battery lasts substantially longer.
    No lags whatsoever.
    I didn't do a factory reset but I do hold down my home button and close all apps before putting my phone away or back into my pocket.
    No complaints with 4.3 from me.

    Yeah, I'm not getting that problem. Maybe there is a fix.

    I noticed the ability to move apps to the sd card which is great BUT the app icon is now grayed out and very difficult to see on my home screens.

    Found the fix.....For those apps that are grayed on the home screen but not in apps, looks like the shortcut is losing some of the link information to the app on the sd card. Delete the defective shortcut from your home screen and remake it (long press in blank space, select Apps and Widgets, select app). The new shortcut should look and work OK.

    Thanks to Patruns for posting in the forums.

    Google navigation works great of our stock 4.3. No issues at all. Just say, "Navigate to the nearest Starbucks" or "Navigate to Work" and it is done!!
