> In reply to A Geek @ 2014-02-09 12:00 from 6w@g - click to readMake a survey. Nobody talks about it. Battery kits are being sold everywhere. You mostly see power banks being used because of iPhone users and other users of uni-bodied devices. You think carrying a power bank is way more efficient? State reasons that make sense.

I'm one who use this more practical method of changing batteries when needed, and charging the spent one at home. What's complicated about that?

I've already enumerated 10 good reasons for a removable battery system, and I've given the small number of advantages of a fixed battery system. Can you name more?

Is this eating you up since you are an Xperia user who is justifying the constant usage of a power bank to keep your Sony Xperia device alive daily?

Utorrent works fine, and I can get 600kbps to over 1mbps per title. I've just consumed over 80GB of data for over a period of 3 weeks.

Unfortunately, the Note 3 does not have a lock to LTE only option. You can use LTE Discovery app and its paid version automates cycling to LTE.

-Heavy extra battery that has relatively more capacity.if you have problem with it there are battery banks with less capacity.
I think battery bank is much better in shape than a mobile battery.also it works with different gadgets.
-2:funniest statement ever heard.If you think so you shouldn't charge your phone because if you use it's micro USB port,it maybe gets damaged.hahahaha.
-5:Just some second to change battery?then how does it get charged itself???you have to put it in your phone at home to get charged separately.that means you have to charge your main battery at home to 100% then bring it out and put second one in the phone and wait till it gets 100% too!Thats a nightmare ! ! ! but power bank is just a independent accessory,and you can use it seperately.If second battery provides saves you some time outdoor,it wastes you some at home cause you should put it in charge and not using it to get full charged,so it gets useless at home.Its the second time I explained it for you but seems your eyes are closed not seeing it.

So you can see all of things you mentioned as disadvantages are actually advantages.Reamovable batterys just makes phones production cheaper so that your dear Sammy makes more money.And Sammy paid trolls are only one s who appreciate it.

> In reply to Tcool @ 2014-02-09 07:48 from NyjE - click to readI did it, but as you see the option "Hide Apllications" here on this https://db.tt/BGKrAwiX screenshot. It's missing on Note 3. I need this to hide some apps from toddlers. By this I don't mean to uninstall.

I know I can use third party launchers to avail this. But I like stock touchwiz.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks
