    Phone is extremely slow and keyboard responsiveness is far worse than 4.3, Phone shuts off nowon its own, every morning I have to take battery out because phone is frozen. Is anyone else getting this? I NEVER had these issues until the update.

    Mine has not experienced one problem sine the update. (I postponed it for a while before applying it). Some apps are still being updated with "KitKat" fixes in the update notes but if your S4 wasn't running on all 8 cylinders when you got the upgrade your best shot is that factory reset.

    I did factory reset before applying the update (had to since I was rooted before). I have had phone lag issues, slow to wake up when I open the Sammy cover. If a calendar reminder has gone off it will not wake up unless I press the power button three or four times.

    I did a restore from a backup after installing the update. I may try a factory reset and just let google play store reinstall all aps and see if that improves things. I just keep thin king it can't be the update. Samsung and Vz had 6 months to perfect this thing before they infected...err...released it on us.

    Allow me to suggest that you NOT allow Google to just install all the apps. 2 reasons, from history. The first is that one of those apps could be the problem. The other is that after a certain number of installs you should probably do restarts to keep the system fresh.

    System reboot seems to have fixed the issue. I did not allow all apps to re download. It must have been one of the recent apps downloaded that caused the issue with the update. So far so good..

    The only app I downloaded prior to kick at was a monopoly slot game. It affected my screen from timing out at first and was fixed with clicking the side button. I have not re downloaded since reset and phone runs great! I did reinstall all other apps

    Only issue I have noticed so far is that KITKAT doesn't allow other programs to write to sd card which sucks and that is a Google feature. I had my camera app writing all photos to my larger sd card in order to not clog up the phone and now that has gone by the wayside unless I root.

    The app Android Browser stopped working. It was a simple browser and there's others to choose from.

    Is this right? Pictures are no longer able to be written to the SD card by default. Are you using a special camera app, or stock camera?

    Foxfi cannot load it's credentials after the update. I get a prompt for a password for "credentials" and I have tried every password I have used on my phone, nothing works and I haven't found a fix yet. S4 on Verizon.

    Nova launcher prime
    Samsung galaxy s4
    Verizon
    Kitkat

    Received kitkat update.
    Installed no problems.
    Did a battery pull after installation.

    Tried to set nova prime as default home in phone settings but wouldn't take. Set it using nova app, seemed to set. Shows nova prime set as default home in default apps, but if you go back to look, it's gone again.

    Every time I turn on my phone, when I swipe the lock screen, I get a prompt to select a launcher. I always choose nova and always.

    Still I always get the prompt after turning on my phone.

    Any suggestions or fixes. All apps are up to date.

    Received the Verizon KitKat update just shy of two weeks ago now and have noticed decreased battery life ever since.

    Within the last week or so, I've also noticed that I lose 4G connection frequently if my phone sits idle for a little while. The only way to get it to come back is to toggle airplane mode. I'm missing emails quite frequently as a result.
