Hi guys,

And guess who is in that list??

Should be smoother and the Magazine UI. Kitkat was designed to work on lower spec devices than Jelly Bean. There are man many more differences. If you check Wikipedia, they do a good job of listing the changes.

My note 3 with kitkat is definitively smoother responsive and the battery is much better even without the ART runtime.

Not sure if you need to bother rooting, since the device rocks already IMO. I use Nova UI, so even better for me.

So I went to bestbuy to check out the new tablets. All I can say is wow! They are snappy! I can't wait for the update. I experienced 0 lag or hiccups which is what annoys me on my note 10.1 2014. Hoping the update is out sooner than later
