The Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2 Android 4.3 update has caused users to complain about the wait for many weeks now, and even though the latest reports reveal the update is heading to more regions it seems some people are still very unhappy.
It is clear that the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has received the Android 4.3 update via official service centers, and this was evident from a number of screenshots landing on Twitter and well known Android blogs. Sadly, this news confused some people and they thought the software was released OTA, but this is not the case at the time of writing in the majority of regions.
We have received feedback from Product Reviews readers in India and the UK, but none of these people have seen the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Android 4.3 update go live and some even took their phone to service centers. “I just went to a service center and I’m still on 4.1.2”, said one Galaxy Note 2 owner. Another added, “It is the same story every week and I’m getting tired of the really long wait to get the latest software update”.

We have also heard about problems with the Android 4.3 update, especially on Galaxy S3, and it seems to involve the UI becoming unresponsive when you get a phone call. One way a few people fixed this problem was to clear their TouchWiz cache, but this can wipe home screen apps.
