Battery backup is up to mark as per specification. You just don`t want to accept the fact that it can be optimized for better battery life.
Just wait for Android M update and battery will be boosted to maximum level.Be patient and avoid negative comments.

I never told bad thing regarding performance. It is still a better one in this price range.
As now good options are there.
Asus zen 2 lazer is one of them with batter Camera in night mode low light also. BATTERY life is far better than k note 3. It also with gorilla glass 4 as batter protection. You can play heavy games easily which are giving trouble in k note 3.
I don't want to praise other brand but fact is fact.
In my case BATTERY life is main problem and surprisingly service center checked it TWICE keeping with them for two days & nothing wrong found in k note 3 device.
TWICE replaced BATTREY although for the same reason third also checked & found faulty & all proved in front of service officials & public.
Now where is the question of hardware or software?
Now third time they wants to keep my device for observations.
I am now not agreeing for that & remanded extra BATTERY or replacement against new entire device.
I have already spent so much money in conveyance in a new battery easily bought.

san, 28 Sep 2015Lenovo k3 note supports 64gb memory card or not? pls reply..It is advertised to only support 32GB SD card however I have a 128GB card in mine which is working flawlessly.
I believe all who are having a bad experience have received a defective piece of hardware and should return for a replacement/repair.
I've been using the phone for a while and have experienced absolutely no issue at all. Running an Antutu benchmark (Score of 46,560) places the phone in the region of the HTC One M8, Galaxy Note 4 and One Plus One which are all much more expensive.
This phone definitely provides the best performance for the value of the device.
Here is my experience:
Battery performance: Average use during the day, heavy use at night - lasts me from 7AM to 11PM with ~20-30% left when I put it on charge over night.
Heat produced: Idle/light use sits at ~34C, heavy use/gaming rises to ~44C but nothing to be alarmed by.
Wireless connectivity: All good, no slow downs and operates at speeds I would expect in the environment.
Camera: Brilliant detail in all lighting conditions, much better clarity to the photos taken compared with my old Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Screen quality: No light bleeding along any of the edges, the quality of the screen is excellent and produces amazing colours/definition in all situations. Even in direct sunlight I can still easily view the screen so the saturation levels are very good.
General performance: Opening apps, swapping between apps, scrolling, general typing are all instant with no hanging/lag experienced.

You have to accept that at this price its the best overall performance you can get. Real life performance depends upon person to person.
People who are buying this phone are not illiterate. After using for a while everyone will get to learn how to optimize their phone and LENOVO had made that simple.
This phone is a huge success not a failure. It still going out of stock in flipkart within few hrs of restocking.
some times its bad individual experience. and its obivious. becsuse of out of 100 pieces defects in 1 .so its goods statstical value.

any great phone consist of hardware and software. and k3 note failed in software Department.

People may get different battery life as per their usage. If a person chat a lot, a gaming freak,all time surfing will definitely affect battery life and will never be satisfied.Those who don`t bother about battery life will never compromise with performance.without any restriction this phone gives butter like performance and even screen is vibrant in full brightness
You will find screen difference when you browse and play a Fhd video on a 720p screen.
This phone is for everyone, high performance with battery limitations and optimize battery with a little downgraded performance which is acceptable.
If you are lazy enough to tweak your phone,you better sell and buy samsung note for 50K and I bet you even there you will find some drawbacks

1.its a feature rich high end full hd phone but you can't play any good graphics intense game.
2. someone is getting great battery backup someone worst. automatically it states that quality is inconsistent.
3. No major difference of screen quality between k3 and other 720P phone when using side by side.
4. you have to tweak phone in order to get 2 days battery backup.
I am using this phone. it has several limitations. you have to accept it.
