Samsung-Galaxy-Note-3-600x340

Samsung has just started rolling out a minor Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Galaxy Note 3 LTE SM-N9005. The update is codenamed N9005XXUEND6 and it only comes with bug-fixes.

It’s a minor update that should reach all users in a few days. Don’t expect anything new to come with this update, as you will only notice some bug fixes and maybe an increase in the Galaxy Note 3’s speed.

The update is delivered over-the-air (OTA), but some might not get it very soon, depending on their carrier or if their device is rooted, so you will have to manually update it.

To make sure your smartphone is receiving the update, make sure to perform a manual check. In order to do that, head over to Settings > General > About device > Software update > Update and your device will now check for the latest updates. We recommend you to perform OTA updates over WiFi because they might incur in data charges.

If you want to update your Galaxy Note 3 LTE manually, then follow our guide here, the firmware zip file can be found in the tutorial, but you can also get it fromĀ this one instead and then follow the instructions. If you encounter any problems during the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update, please let us know and we will do our best to help you, as always.

For those of you who’ve updated to N9005XXUEND6, we’re curious if you’ve noticed any significant improvements on your smartphone. There are still a lot of bugs on the Galaxy Note 3 LTE and we hope this update is going to fix most of them.

Please let us know in the comments section below if you notice anything after performing the new KitKat update. Until now we didn’t see any significant improvements here at Android Geeks.

    I’ve receive the new update for my note3 but i dont see any improvements in my phone…maybe i’d be happy if samsung would update note3 and have the same app in s5 like the ultra power save mode… which very impossible to happen…:)

    After the update my gps is awful. Kids say it sounds cryptic. Worse then that it does not work. Takes forever to locate my current location. It gives completely inaccurate directions. Ill have to download a 3rd party app. Not sure if this was part of kitkat update or the default gps update. But it all happened at the same time. My camera settings sections also are more complicated. Hate it.

    I’m doing the update now via Verizon software upgrade assistant. Update is taking a really long time. Good thing my laptop is on wifi. I will update you when it’s done. Got pics too!!!

    My note 3 updated last Friday. It’s caused a lot of problems, so many that Verizon had to replace it. I firmly believe that the phone was great before the update. It was fast, easy with great battery life. Now, it’s slow, bogs down like a old windows computer and the battery life has gone to the pits. The update sucks to the point that I would rather not have the phone anymore. I know this doesn’t happen to everyone but this is what mine is going threw
