The Galaxy Note 3 has a new update out as of 12/9/13. Most importantly it enables Band 4 LTE, those in the big cities can jump on the unsaturated band for faster speeds.
So far I have not have any issues, and all the bloatware can be disabled. It's supposed to improve connectivity - hopefully make WiFi more stable.
Anyone having issues with the new update?
I can't get the update to install. It downloads, then about 20 seconds into the install, it gives an error message. Just says error. Can't figure out why.
Yeah until I disabled the bloat Verizon turned back on. According to many reports they also took extra steps with this update to disable tethering apps so perhaps this "feature" could impact the power consumption.
I did too, I also had Verizon to send me a new battery. And went in and disabled all of the apps that I didn't need or use, also keeping the screen on auto and selecting the power saver icon seems to help. You can also download Juice Defender try that out and see what you think.
I live in a 4LTE area and since I got the software update from Samsung my phone now stays in 3LTE all the time. I can turn the phone off and it starts back in 4LTE but in about 5 minutes it goes to 3LTE. Called Verizon and the told me to turn phone off and then back on. Tried to explain to them that it does solve the problem. Someone told that it could be the SIM card and that I might need a new one since the update.
Can someone please help me.
