I didn't realize it happened after the update until it was mentioned here and u thought back.
I have all my regular apps that i use update automatically and i haven't added any new apps since I got the phone and installed them to begin with.
I use to tinker with my phones but haven't had time with the note, so it's not rooted, and it only has the apps I use constantly as I knew wouldn't have time to mess with the phone a lot and I didn't want to clutter it like my old s3.
I uninstalled everything that I could... It's definitely something deeper. I'm waiting till I have time to back things up before I do a reset
