Android 4.4 KitKat update Causing Third-Party Accessory Issues to Galaxy Note 3

Are you one of those people who have enjoyed the latest news about the Android 4.4 KitKat update prepared for Galaxy Note 3? Are you thinking of updating your device? You should hold that thought a little longer as long as there are several complains from other users who are claiming that after updating to Android 4.4 KitKat, several accessories for their Galaxy Note 3 device had suddenly stopped working. After initially denying any correlation between the Android 4.4.2 software and these problems, Samsung has finally admitted that this this update is indeed causing third-party accessory issues to Galaxy Note 3.

Regarding those complains that we have told you about, people mentioned, for example, the problems about the S-View cases which no longer triggered the special screen as we are used to when closed. So, although at that time the company had only suggested that we should start buying the official case instead of these popular third party ones, now we finally know the truth.

Is never easy to admit that you have been wrong, but now Samsung wants to make things right, so it has just released a statement to Ars Technica saying that it has successfully identified this software compatibility issue with the Galaxy Note 3 update to KitKat and certain 3rd party accessories, so it is currently working to fix the problem.

In this case, you are supposed to wait for a new software update in the near future and the problem will be solved. The third-party cases will once again show screen information from the Galaxy Note 3 when the display is covered, just as they should do it in the first place, but the story doesn’t end here. These Android 4.4 KitKat updates are presented as being as safe as possible, so where does that leaves us staying?

Are there any other problems waiting to reach the surface or was it just a “one time” unfortunate situation? It’s pretty hard to predict that from our position, but Samsung has definitely lost some of our trust.
