Default [Q] New N3, but Should I update to kitkat

Hi All
Just unpacked my new unlocked UK/EU Note 3 and its still on its 1st charge, however, I traded my S4 when I upgraded my contract and the KK on the S4 was abysmal and buggeed...

Question:

Is KK on the Note 3 as broken and would you recommend me to update to 442 or just flash the latest 4.3 in ODIN

Thanks

Depends on various things, KK on the Note is fine but JB was also -- I assume it has JB on it hence the KK question? cause you cannot downgrade to JB if KK is already only on it.

No, my N3 comes with XXUBMI6 (4.3) dated 11th Sept 2013 at bootup, but this is my works phone for my business, so I want 442 stock to be ok. I have read that theres an Update called MD6 which fixes the bugs of MD5, as long as i get good battery and for the N3 to function as it should then ill just update, but im asking if anyone has had any real issues with KK 442, like the issues on the S4 KK?

Thanks,

My recommendation, stay at 4.3 if you don't have any problems. I only update to kk, because Deepsleep problem in 4.3.
After updating to KitKat I don't have the Deepsleep issue.
The SD CARD permission crap for most 3rd party apps is not important for me
If for you, than stay at 4.3

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


All i use the SD card for is Photos, which is connected to OneDrive and Music, nothing else.. so like you I didnt have an issue on the SD either, But it sounds like 442 is fine, Ive just been burned by the s4 crap, and am a bit apprehensive..

99 out of 100 users have zero issues with KK on the N3 - I had no issues either. - Go for the update.

Like you I didnt have an issue with the SD permissions, I only used it for Pics, Music and MS Office documents.. so its ok.

Ive just been burned by the S$ KK and Im just a bit wary with my New N3 thats all..

Note 3 ist the Best phone for me, with 4.3, and also with 4.4.2
Can't say bad things about 4.4.2, but can't say..... go quickly and update your phone because KitKat sounds good or had any new features and so on. Both runs very good..... only Deepsleep was a problem.

If you make a update, do it right at first time. Spend some time an reset it before, use the recovery mode, wipe cache, use Odin and update your phone. Again reset via recovery mode

If you flash the original Samsung Firmware with Odin you don't trigger Knox or something else!!!
