I live in Bangladesh. My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 LTE. In Dhaka, there is 3G. But in the network mode I see 2G/3G (Auto Connect), 3G only, 2G only. LTE is mentioned nowhere. Is Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 LTE is a real LTE variant phone. Confused. Please reply.
I got it last March and it was working Super UNTIL the last Kitkat Update .
1 - it keeps freezing and i cannot almost use my phone as i cannot get out the black screen .
2 - I did the Factory reset , it worked fine for some days then it's becoming even worse !
3 - now i cannot know who is calling , cannot stop the alarm sometimes i cannot use it at all !
Any ideas what to do rather than endless factory reset !

But it is inconvenient because every time I need to check the phone I have to open the bag and dig inside.
Should I dump my tight jeans and buy loose jeans? LOL!

Or Samsung has caught on with funneling people to buy music from their Hub. Haha.
I have no qualms about the Note 3 having an FM radio or not. I'm pretty happy with internet radio.
On a side note, the Note II has recently got a 4.4.2 update that gives it the Air Command and seems all the software features of the Note 3. That has an FM radio, but no LTE for most.

An alternative casual thing you can use is to try out a belt bag. I found the thinnest one, with another compartment for the extra battery:

since last update . better battery life. i bought proper samsung s viewer. but i bought one from amazon and it works from this update. so you can use third party acessories.
Initial findings on battery performance after 4.4.2 update indicate to be normal as before. From last night to this morning on a 13 hours stretch, the indicator reached 50% with more than 2.5 hours of screen on usage browsing with Chrome and email turned on to check every 15 minutes.
4.4.2 also fixed the problem connection with my old Sonyericsson Liveview smartwatch which was always disconnecting with 4.3.
Got kitkat update in UAE. No problem in mobile..update via kies. No battery drain problem and nothing..
it is pretty big phone for hand and pocketing ...but performances are great for me , i am very sattisfied with this phone ...AMOLED display is great !

For my baby, I use only apps compatible to Android 4.4.2. There will always be Jelly Bean apps counterpart on Kitkat.
