Default Samsung Galaxy S4 4.3 Update

I have the Galaxy s4 from Sprint and I was wondering what are your reviews on the 4.3 update and you u recommend me updating to 4.3. I am asking because my phone wants to update to 4.3 and I need to know if there are any issues after the update especially battery life, I get more than 12 hours on a single charge off and on wi-fi (which is excellent to me). I am thinking if I choose to update my phone to 4.3 the battery life would get worse. Can you please let me know about the battery life and if there are any issues you are having after the 4.3 update. I already know the Galaxy s4 from AT&T 4.3 update caused their phones to have wifi problems.

I wouldn't bother. Take the opportunity that you still have with 4.2 to root your phone and experience the fantasy! You can always update later, so why the heck not?

If you don't want to root, I'd at least wait until 4.4. 4.3 from what I've read is no quantum leap over 4.2!

Besides, if your battery life is good now, I wouldn't jinx it!

4.4 isn't much of a change either.

Au contrare....As noted on a recent post of many I've done on the WiFi thread, I so far, on AT&T, have had less problems with my WiFi after the 4.3 update. FWIW.
