kitkat my opinion, faster, more stable, it consumes very little battery even with the stock kernel

Im very happy with the stock na1 firmware on my phone. Its an n9002 anyway so I dont have much of a choice. I'd probably stick to this firmware until something really major comes out.

The real question is not if JB was "greatest ever", the real question is if KK brings (much) more advantages than disadvantages.

JB 4.3:

- stable, extremely well tested
- no SD problem
- voice recorder
- I am on MI7 bootloader and I can install any stock Samsung 4.3 and still have Knox 0x0 and root


KK 4.4.2:

- unstable in many configurations
- new SD permisssions, many older programs have problems
- no voice recorder
- no coming back after the new bootloader
- there WILL be another KK release from Samsung to fix known problems
- only apparent advantage is better battery and somehow better latency (mostly in stock programs) - but on my 4.3 configuration I already have excellent battery (my record is 4 days and almost 10 hours of screen) and I am using programs like Apex launcher and exDialer that already have excellent latency in most of my normal tasks.

So for the moment I am staying with 4.3. and being very happy with it

EDIT:

Also an advantage of KK is the fact that there seems to be more free memory (which IMHO is just the video driver no longer reserving stuff in advance). But since I have most of the stuff that I do not use frozen in Titanium Backup I have plenty of memory for the moment (I am coming from an i9300 where you were basically getting less than 800MB in total, around 300MB free in stock-derived ROMs, so from under 300MB to 1000+ is kind of OK for my immediate needs )

Im also holding back to upgrade to KK,

I've got no issues so far with my rooted MK2. I know there's no turning back once you jumped shipped to KK, so i'm patiently waiting for a more stable release before i let my itchy hands loose

I'm playing with the idea. One day I want it. Next I don't. . Purely based on user reviews and personal experience using Stock 4.4 in another device.

Waiting on BTU update. . Frustrating!

NA6 + NA7 had fixes to my previous MJ1 problems, and reacts faster to my actions.

Hence, KK for me.

I was sitting on the fence too about upgrading to KK nut as I have 2 note 3's I thought bugger it, I'll go with one of each...
Set up both Note exactly the same to see what would happen. Jb ate up arond 30% battery over 8 hours while KK only used 20%.
Overall KK was faster. it isn't majorly different eye candy but under the hood has been tweaked big time.
I never had the problems with the sd cards, the flash went off without a hitch and everything was working fine.
I gave myself 3 days to test then upgraded the other one as the experience was so much better...
Only missed some of the theme mods as most others I use worked but that has been fixed with time...
Would recommend going to KK as you will find it better, though you might nee to find the mods again that work with KK...
