Samsung Galaxy Note 3-Lock Screen

Following some rumors the update was coming, U.S. Cellular is indeed rolling out Android 4.4.2 KitKat to its Galaxy Note 3 owners.

Users of the Galaxy Note 3 on U.S. Cellular should be rejoicing as the KitKat update will bring many more features to their phones. Some of what you have to look forward to includes:

  • Phone Dialer – The new phone app automatically prioritizes your contacts based on the people you talk to the most. You can also search for nearby places and businesses, your contacts, or people in your Google Apps domain.
  • Camera – Enhanced the “touch to focus” option with a new circular, on screen control that can be dragged by your finger around the viewfinder to adjust a photo’s focus and exposure.
  • Hangouts – With the new Hangouts app, all of your SMS and MMS messages are together in the same app, alongside your other conversations and video calls.
  • Just say
  • “Ok Google” – You don’t need to touch the screen to get things done. When on your home screen or in Google Now, just say “Ok Google” to launch voice search, send a text, get directions or even play a song
  • Emoji everywhere – Sometimes words can’t express how you feel. For that, there’s Emoji, the colorful Japanese characters, now available on Google Keyboard.
