I must say, with some aluminum bumper frame, and extended battery, you can transform the 2-year-old Note 3 that's more reliable and still looks brand new:
Mimi, 31 Jan 2016Where did you buy your replacement batteries from?Ebay. Some are even selling at $9 fir the back cover and double-capacity battery. My old Samsung desktop cradle charger can charge the double capacity:
There are triple-capacity ones, but they're about $35, but I don't like the silicone cover that becomes loose over time. Hard plastic covers are more solid and I can still use my aluminum bumper frame:
Suck-it-up, 30 Jan 2016Indeed,I noticed this when I had first got the update and I hated sammy for this!! Another th... moreyeah. you can still take screenshots on note 3 by swiping your hand across the screen.
At long last, I finally got my 2 orders of 6800mAh batteries, and have been putting them into their paces. After 2 charging cycles, WITHOUT power saving mode, although I did only get more than 13 hours on a single charge, I managed to get 8 hours and 23 minute of screen on usage with mostly browsing and YouTube, and 3 hours TuneIn Radio Pro listening and recording. Mostly on WiFi, with last 20% on LTE. This was at home. Anyone can see my stats:
Before that, with the same extended battery, I could get some 17H, with 4H42M of screen on usage, 5 hours on hotspot, and downloaded some 1.5 GB of torrents on the go. All on LTE without saving mode:
My point is, with my heavy usage, the removable battery system gives this flexibility. That's why I see the Note.5 being utterly pointless when I heard it came with a sealed battery. I will not have to carry charger/powerbank/spare battery. I calculated that with "normal" usage without downloading torrents, I can get some 25 hours with probably even 6-7 hours of screen on usage. The usage time per charge seems legit enough, but it'll take another 5 cycles till each batteries are calibrated correctly, and likely even more efficient.
Sure, there is a hump at the rear, but it gives me all day battery with LTE and notifications on till I get home. I normally get some 3h+ screen on usage, with 1 GB torrent download over a stretch of 12H+ on the regular battery, with some 10% left. I have to swap the battery to a new one late afternoon.
r1, 30 Jan 2016Sorry typo error n900 stability update is on due on jan 2016 we can expect anytime soon !thats great to hear as it will solve these problems r1.

r1, 30 Jan 2016The thing is we should wait till feb 2016 to know more on which version will note 3 get !yeah. i posted a comment to you as i was on sam live chat. but i think they are keeping it to themselves as they said they dont like to say when an update come out until month before its released. so i dont know. i think we get it. but when i dont know r1
r1, 30 Jan 2016Is every thing ok after reset ?was in sam live chat the day. waiting for an hour as must be loads of ppl asking question. i told them about the problems on my model and on n9000 model i knew what the answer was gona be. factory reset. about updates they said they have heard no news about our models, but thats not to say we wont get it according to them. they said just to keep checking with them every month as things can change. so if neo gets it we should get it. so heres hoping r1.

Another thing to be noted is that screenshot apps from the play store do not work either after the update,so it sucks.
