    Lol. Do you have GPS on in location settings before you use maps or turn it on once using it then turn it off right after? I'm curious to know if I should just leave GPS on in location settings. Will it run battery or does GPS not run unless you are using an app that needs it? It is set up differently so I am confused. Lol

    I really don't know how it affects battery life in Kit Kat. I always turn it OFF when not using an app that requires it but that doesn't mean I need to turn it off, as I'm just doing what I've done for years, to conserve the battery.

    Yeah I hear that. It's annoying having to go into the settings everytime I need to use Google maps though. Hmm...

    I bought a battery really cheap through Amazon. it's an Anker battery and it works fine. I also bought a charger for it for less than $9 and it also works great. Gotta love Amazon Prime

    What I have noticed in the past few days is that my screen keeps turning on for about a second then turning off. It will do that just about all day but it's random. It's more often than not. Any one else experiencing this and know how to fix this?
    Update: I even turned smart stay off and back on again.

    Well my excitement about greatly improved battery life has been short lived. While my battery is still showing improvement, my phone is now acting extremely erratic. Lagging with just about everything, including AndroidCentral app. I haven't installed any new apps since the update. I've cleared caches, deleted any unwanted files (nothing system related just downloads and pictures). I've removed the SD card also to no avail.

    The worst part is my note2 keeps "turning off" regularly....I will take my phone out and hit the power button and nothing happens. The only thing that works is pulling the battery. Any ideas?

    Under Settings - Storage - Miscellaneous files

    My Miscellaneous files shows as 5.79GB and 5.67GB of that is "System Memory".

    Any idea how to clear this? It has to be a mistkke as most of the items in that folder are under 1mb.

    Since the update, my SCH-I605's usb port doesn'twork. It works to charge the phone, but when I plug it into my home computer to move pictures or music to the computer, the computer never sees the phone now... It used to see the phone and you could move files back and forth. Now, I can't even use KIES cause it won't see the phone. I really need this to work for pictures and files....I need help and fast!

    Grumpy, I don't know if this is Something that will work for you or not but using Google Drive to sync files works great. Yes it isn't as fast as USB transfer but as long as you have WiFi you are good to go. I use my phone as a camera for work a lot and we have our USB ports locked so I can't use that method. So I synced my PC with my drive and it's right there by the time I get to my desk. Granted if you don't have access to WiFi then it will kill your Data. As for why you can't access your phone through USB is a mystery to me. Is there any settings to tell your phone what to do when plugged in in your notification bar?

    I move from office to office in my work, so no wifi..I used to get notifications when I connected my computer to the phone, before kitkat, now nothing. All the port on the phone does is charge. Doesn't matter is USB debugging is on or off, nothing...
    Verizon unlimited data plan...if that makes a difference...I can't mount the phone as a hard drive, view anything on it, etc....this sucks.

    the cooling down icon pops up and doesn't disappear even after my phone has cooled. I tried swiping it away but it is persistent. I haven't touched my phone for about an hour and it feels cool but the icon won't go away.

    No I don't. And I've rebooted my phone which made it go away. I'll post a picture of it happens again.

    So far I'm less than impressed with the update. My phone seems to lag on everything I try to do from unlocking to writing a simple text message. These are some of the things I've noticed so far (about 1 week in since upgrade).
    -- Serious lag when opening apps, closing apps, basically doing anything on the phone
    --My email client (not gmail) routinely notifies me of new email when there is none. It also does not update in real time like it used to and I often have to hit the refresh icon to see if there is something new
    --The battery life does not seem any better than previous and takes longer to charge. Yesterday I had an anomaly where my phone was at 79%, plugged in it, and 20 min later it said 100%. I unplugged and then very quickly the battery drained to 83%.
    --I like the text notification on the lock screen, but the font is so big that I can't read more than a few words of the text. Can that be changed?
    --I hate the new revised emoticons in the Samsung keyboard
    --When I get a voicemail, the new voicemail icon stays in the notification bar until I physically delete the message. Even after I listen to it, it still shows as new. Anyone else have this?
    --I don't stream video too often, but this week watching the World Cup was awful because it kept freezing. I don't know if it was purely network traffic or some KK glitch that someone else mentioned with Hulu and HBO.

    That's about all I've noticed so far and unfortunately most are negative making me wish I wouldn't have upgraded. I've never done a factory reset, but I'm assuming that deletes all of your data. How hard is it to back up the phone and restore? I should probably do that anyway!

    Have you cleared partition cache? That doesn't delete you stuff.

    Shutdown phone > push power, up volume and home button at the same time (a menu should pop up) > move down to clear partition cache with volume button > push power button to select > wait for this to clear cache > go down to restart and there you go.

    If you are using TeslaUnread Plugin for Nova Launcher, then restart the launcher: Nova Settings>Advanced>Restart Nova Launcher.

    If still no joy, then you may need to clear cache a data of affected apps (phone and message apps)
