Time On is 1h 57m 20s. Screen 11%,An Sys 3%, Voice calls 1%, And OS 1%,Cell standby 1%. Ratio of screen time to full phone usage cannot be gauged.

I havent been into xda dev in along time. anyways just to see i checked OTA and it says latest software installed. So im waiting on note 5 with either M or newer version of LP.

It will never be released anyway, cause SD Note 3 never did officially sell here. Flash another region's firmware.
blondi, 26 Jun 2015Thats a FACT lol!Yes, it is. Google about Google's own Project Volta!
If you aren't getting better backup in Lollipop then there's something wrong with the implementation of the firmware. It's Samsung's problem, rather than anyone else's.
My backup IS ~25% better, along with plenty other people. XDA is there for FACTS, always!

When wil we get lollipop for snapdragon model here in india??? Why is samsung taking sooooo long... I dnt understand! !!!

Sometimes you dont always get warranty from ebay on phones unless it brand new. It depends on the seller. I was told when i bought my note that if i broke screen through my fault i would have to pay for to get it fixed. Thats not covered by warranty.
I finally got the lollipop update on the Note 3 (which was a nightmare to install - so much frustrations). After the update was done though, battery life improved significantly (haven't used it long enough to determine SOT, but each percent warrants a longer usage time though compared to KK, for example; it drained 10% in 1 hour and 30 minutes while on social media, which I find to be really good in fact), device feels faster and it looks a lot better also. If you get this update, then do it now! There's really no point staying on KK if the update is available.
Abhi D, 25 Jun 2015Since you are using Lollipop in your Note 3, i want to know how much SOT you get and how much ... moreNo app crashes , No bugs , Heating only when updating 10-12 apps at a time. It does not have a fan like PC, lap top. Difficult to quantify "screen on Time" but i have kept on power saver mode. Magnificent gestures are off and screen time out is 2 min. Absolutely no problems so far with phone.

They must service a genuine samsung model. Of course he has to bear the cost bcoz his screen cracked bcoz of accident which is not covered in warranty.

There is an issue of IMEI going null/erased and one has to flash the modem of lollipop to get the phone working and get back IMEI
There is no such issue in Snapdragon version though

And also my apps keep crashing, app drawer slows down, phone slows down, ram usage has surged, wallpaper changes automatically to stock.
