There seem to be all sorts of issues on all sorts of devices that already received Android 4.3 such as => http://news.softpedia.com/news/Galaxy-S4-Google-Edition-Plagued-with-Issues-Following-Android-4-3-Upgrade-374851.shtml
You can find dozens and dozens more,
If I ran an Android phone, I'd choose patience. Wait. See how buggy the updates are.
Don't be guinea-piggified.

My Note 2 is fine, that's not even running official firmware (it's me, what did you expect haha :p).

Getting the distinct feeling unofficial firmwares are more reliable? Uploaders on XDA etc have more to lose than Big G or Sammy etc... they just shrug off the complaints.

That and 3rd party developers are honest about what doesn't work. If the ROM has a bug or two, they'll openly admit it. The manufacturers would rather sweep it under the rug and hope that somehow not one of their millions of customers will notice.
