I just upgraded my galaxy note3 from 4.3 jellybean to 4.4.2 KitKat OTA. But honestly, I see no difference between the two apart from the colour of the icons on the notification bar which changed to white.

Am I missing something? Please what's the difference between the two?

We are in the same shoe bro. I upgraded my Lg G2 from jellybean to kitkat. The only difference i noticed is that the device is now faster.

Battery was better on jellybean, at least on mine though it's probably from LG. I had to switch to a custom rom

I have now noticed that the upgrade came in with "device cooler"
Clean master displayed it. And the device doesn't get hot the way it used to when in was running jellybean.

I am looking out for more changes.

after updating ur device, a factory reset is COMPULSORY. If not the new update will find it hard or may take long to take control of ur device system. After update, reboot ur phone, then factory reset it. There will be no issue whatsoever with ur device.

The one I'm using now(CloudyG3) is based on stock G3 rom, stock kernel. The battery is not that great but the UI has kept me glued to it. If you're looking for battery improvement, try CloudyFlex and apparently, dorinmax kernel is best for battery improvement..so I heard, never tried it

I haven't used an AOSP rom on the phone before but I once tried SOKP, it was cool but battery life was terrible

U just upgraded na. Use it for one week first. Have you noticed that U can access the notification bar even when on full screen; e.g when playing games and that U can swipe from the bottom to access Google Now from any part of the phone. There are more. Check them out on YouTube.

yea i noticed the notification bar tingy now appears anywhere even while gaming, but i dint tink it was part of the upgrade cos i bought ma fone wit 4.2 on it, barely some hours after using it, it detected new 4.3 update(did d upgrade asap), after that it detected d 4.4.2 (updated asap again) so i barely used the old OS to notice any differences sha... last time i used andy was months back wit 4.0.2 OS ...


Best of both worlds... android (4.4.2 rooted wink) and ios 7.1.2 jailbreak(ed)... so wen peeps b arguing wch is beta, i jst sit back and enjoy their ranting....


over all i am an iphone lover and tink ios is way cooler... MY OPINION
