Samsung Galaxy Note 3 on T-Mobile now getting Android 4.4.2

Galaxy Note 3

The Galaxy Note 3 smartphone on T-Mobile is now getting the coveted Android 4.4 update. This will bring forth quite a few changes compared to conventional KitKat updates as Samsung has to take the S-Pen specific updates into mind as well. The UI has received minor tweaking with some updates to core Android. It will change the software version to N900TUVUCNB4, so make a note of that if you’re on the lookout for an update.

As is the case with any OTA update, this one too could take its time in reaching devices, so maintain patience and you should have it by the end of the week. If you’re particularly impatient, you can try pulling the update manually through the settings. It is said that looks wise, the update doesn’t change a lot, so don’t get your hopes up. But be assured that there will be quite a few changes on board and that’s because Google has made a lot of changes to stock Android with KitKat.

Let us know if you’ve gotten the update already on your T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3.

  1. Interesting. It might be worth reporting the problem to Samsung, see if you can get some results. Like I said, I’d be surprised if it was the processor, but it’s entirely possible. With all the people talking about their batteries exploding inside their Samsung devices, I wondered if that might be cause in your case…

  2. I don’t think so. I haven’t reported it. I don’t even feel like using that device. I only use it for testing my apps. And for some reason, I feel like the status bar icons (all white colored) don’t match the rest of the OS.

  3. I tried keeping the phone on air plane mode for a complete day. But even then the heating issue was there. So it might not be the radio? But yeah, it could be the battery as well.

  4. It could be the Exynos processor, but I have my doubts. It wouldn’t be much of a surprise if it was the cell radio or the battery, considering Samsung’s history with these issues…

  5. I agree. I’ve seen heating issues increase after the update as well. But I think its because of the Exynos processor inside the international version. I have on T Mobile version as well, at work for testing. And that doesn’t heat up that easily, even with gaming.

  6. The international version, or the Nexus version of the Note 3 actually got this update over a month back. It was kind of good on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. But I think the KitKat update screwed up the phone. Its laggy now and there are crazy wakelocks.

  7. Awesome! This was actually a quick update considering the Note 3 just came out, then again it is simply incremental and not totally impressive. Samsung! Give us faster updates!
