Default [Q] Questions for Note 3 Owners

When you guys were on the Note 2 before updating to the Note 3 (or any Galaxy device), how long did it take for the update(s) to come out where you would get the UI from the Galaxy S device? For example, the phone, web browser, texting UI, etc updated for the Note 2 and it looks similar to the S4. Like I understand it's hard to explain, but I was wondering when will our Note 3's look like the S5's TW ui?

As far as I know there are already two roms with S5 features, you will find them in android development section.

I would like to avoid rooting. My bootloader is locked as well.

Unlucky for your bootloader.

Usually it happens when the next iteration of your current device is released, 3 - 4 months later a major update would be released.

However with 4.4.3 looming near, Samsung may decide to think about the possibility of an image of the Note 3 having flat skins.

Yes, that is how you should think about Samsung's speed of updating ^^
Problem with ROMs? Try this. Still no? Ask me on Google+!

I have AT&T in the US, so our updates are slower than other companies because of the bloating. I just want that LTE/Wifi mix booster software, UI updates, new camera editing features, and Ultra Power Saving Mode. Most of those are S5 features, but I am willing to wait. I also want a bug fix for the battery drain bug from 4.4.2. AT&T kaboshed our GPS and took many months to fix the phone. I could've gotten another phone from them, but I chose not to since I like the Note 3 a lot.
