Samsung Galaxy Note II for Verizon gets its Android 4.4.2 KitKat update today

Verizon Wireless today started rolling out an official Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for its Samsung Galaxy Note II (model number SCH-I605) - less than a month after the carrier also updated the newer Galaxy Note 3 to KitKat.
Apart from including all the new stuff that KitKat has to offer, the update brings support for Samsung Knox 2.0 to Verizon’s Note II. It also fixes some issues and small bugs, while removing apps like S Suggest and Samsung Music. Moreover, support for the new Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch has been added.
All in all, Verizon is delivering Android 4.4.2 KitKat to its Samsung Galaxy Note II before AT&T and T-Mobile, but after Sprint, which started rolling out the update at the end of May.
Released in November 2012, the Galaxy Note II is no longer available to buy at Verizon. And that makes perfect sense, as the Note 3 was launched in October 2013, and there’s a new Galaxy Note 4 that’s supposed to be announced as soon as September.

I'm appalled by that Verizon logo on the home button. That's why I will never buy a phone from Verizon...

Some people don't find end of world for something like this. Easily get or make home button to cover up and wow things are restored back to goodness. I've bought one for $4 or so and I just keep with adhesive and keep on using. Is really not a big deal or maybe you just see something like that meaning so much with everything else in world. You maybe should just really get a iPhone and start to be happy, they do have round home button so really think on this.

Make that 3 people; if all you can do on your phone is focus on a small button that takes you back to Home then you deserve to have an iPhone. I've had the Note II since November 29, 2012, and the Home button, for me, serves its' purpose. You need phone lessons, Homey!
