I am using it for the 4th month.
Fone is awesome except for the yellowish display.
Does anyone know how to change the yellowish display to little blueish to get a cool interface look instead of yellowish..
Any app available?
And has anyone got the 5.1.1 update?

Unless you manually kill the apps every time (this will cause system to be misbehave and slow opening apps), if not the RAM will be always nearly full to provide better user experience.
You can see that in application manager there are 2 sections, running services and cache processes. Cache processes is use in keeping the apps to load faster next time while running services is to keep services and syncing active. Priority is given first to running services which never stops running in RAM. If RAM needed for a newly open apps, apps that use the least in cache processes will be killed.
Yes, the more RAM needed if you install more applications that provide services (like Google services, widgets, mail or social networking apps). For that being said, this is why old Android devices that has less RAM and also less internal storage (apps can't be installed in SD card) to prevent too much apps overloading the RAM.
Anonymous, 16 Nov 2015"Small Battery". It's battery is replace-able, so it's actually one of the biggest in the mark... moreactually that 2500mah batteries were sold out long time ago in ebay or amazon... but i agree that 720p screen of alpha is still good
(i also owned note 3 with 1080p screen before and i think both phone have brillant screen qualities)
I agree that samsung is RAM hungry. My Samsung S5 has 2gb ram and when I use it, the 2gb ram becomes 400mb. So maybe samsung should add more rams for the future flagships.
