Hey guys i upgraded my fone 3 days ago. And everything is just perfect.. except the charging time. It is taking 3 hours now to get fully charged.. which was actually 1 hour 50 minutes on kitkat. I have checked the voltage of my charger(original) and have also checked the data cable as well. Everything is ok. So Is there anyway to solve this problem. replies appreciated :)

I cant speak for everyone. I like the black. Makes it look nice. I want to buy note 5 if it comes with M or newer version of LP. But white background is the only thing i worry i might not like. A lot of forums i go into say its too catoonist. I dont know cos im not on LP. I would have to try note 5 and have a look at it before i buy. I might like it. Just have to wait and see. Everybodys taste is not the same. But glad its working for you ithehappy.
blondi, 28 Jun 2015But there still complainst with LP. Glad it works for you.its better when phone comes with L... moreWell I have seen people complaining too! Main complaint is battery, it isn't good and all that, but it's exactly opposite for me. Then there is the memory leak problem, which I am yet to find what, and I run 10 apps at a time sometimes! And then there is the slowness or lag when you try to close all apps (clear Recent apps list), yes, that is the ONLY ONE thing which is worse in LP than KK. It was almost instant on KK, but it takes a second or two in LP, but I do that only once, before going to bed to make sure Deep Sleep doesn't get disturbed by any open app. And that's all. But again, if KitKat works for you, as it should, because it had more time to get rid of bugs, so it should run stable and all, you should stay on it. The only thing, a MAJOR thing, which sometime people miss is, there is a HUGE upgrade in Runtime, moving from Dalvik to ART is a big step forward and that was done with Lollipop, and that should make the overall experience of Android better, a lot better than how it was on KitKat, and that is the main I reason I ask people to upgrade! It's not ICS to JB, or JB to KK, there is big fundamental change here. But yes, one can't expect smooth and buttery Lollipop like Nexus devices have, Samsung are going in right path with TouchWiz, but they still need to do a lot of things to give us the Stock Android experience, along with the additional features. On KitKat, TouchWiz was a messy bloat. On Lollipop things are way less messy, but work still needs to be done.

Glad it works for you.its better when phone comes with LP. upgrading to LP over kk isnt good. it only causes more problems for some ppl and other ppl it works great and thats good. Kk is great for me. No problems.

Zull, 27 Jun 2015Tq for your opinion,i appreciate it,that really helps me :)Your welcome. Some ppl would say note 4. But ive read that some pp who bought note 4 wished they had stayed with note 3. But to be truthful note 3 is more classy looking:-)
Somebody help me out here please, I'm using Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9005, I've updated the android version when Samsung official update arrived in our South Asia region. After the update my cell's LED indicator light doesn't blink like before, it only turns red and green while on charging... Settings are also okay, any solution please...
Zull, 27 Jun 2015Hi guys,I never use a samsung before but now I quite interested with note 3, and I would like ... moreDepends on your budget. If you are getting Note 3 at a good price then go for it. No disadvantage at all, I love the phone, even after using this phone for seven and a half months I love it quite strongly, I don't seem to remember any phone I owned about which I can say the same.
With Note 4 you will get a much better camera (much better, seriously), a QHD display and faster chipset obviously, but quite naturally it will cost you more.

I can't recall a single problem, no memory leak, nothing, there are however a lot of things better in 5.0, than in 4.4.2!

So it looks like Note 3 with factory installed Lollipop is doing great
Zull, 27 Jun 2015Hi guys,I never use a samsung before but now I quite interested with note 3, and I would like ... moreNote 3 is still a great phone. its fast on web browsing. Backup battery us good. But always keep a spare as screen uses a lot of battery power. I dont play games on mine. SO wouldnt know about that. Go for note 3 N9005 4g lte. You can get it at a reasonable price. Even though its nearly 2 yrs old its still a good flagship phone. Hope this helps:-)
Abhi D, 27 Jun 2015Is that "1 hr 57 min" the time screen has been on OR the time device has been on ? Device has been "on " for more than 15 hours. Screen time is 2 hrs. 8 - 10 hours of night is included though. Screen time to device usage time is difficult to find though. But is definitely less than 40%.
