Default Erratic behaviour after OTA 4.3

Hi guys...

I took the OTA just recently. I came from a pure stock Note 2.
OTA flash was seamless and all seemed well for a a few days.
But then, over the next few days, i noticed several problems.

1) the power button/home button frequently requires more than one press to work.
2) my gallery slowed to a crawl and would hang/freeze (all sync options for accounts are turned off)
3) occasional lag in touch wiz. including swiping applications.

anybody else have this problem? and what could the possible fix be?
am already thinking of doing a hard reset.

I had problems with my gallery freezing before but that was due to plex media server and once i turned off the dlna on the plex server side, my gallery was fine. but now my gallery freezes/slows to a crawl even with all data modes switched off/airplane mode.

hope to get some insight..

regards,
asmd.

I would suggest backing everything up and doing a factory reset. Most times that makes a huge difference.

In addition, I recommend to format your internal storage during your FR to get rid of all the old 4.1 files. This will drastically speed up your system. All those old caches for apps and thumbnails as well as the actual 4.1 apps themselves sometimes.

Since 4.3 uses emulated storage locations for internal storage, this will also correct any file path issues looking forward.

Thanks for the replies folks,
Its much appreciated.

I did the factory reset.
gallery is now better. i can still scroll faster than it can display the thumbnails. At least it doesnt lag and hang.
Battery life now has become an issue.

In normal use i have about 40 percent (after a full charge) left after 24hours.
Now i only have 20% left (after a full charge) after 24 hours.

wonder what is eating up extra battery life.

regards,
asmd.
