Anonymous, 24 Jun 2015Hey there ,
i'm from Egypt too and i didnt get the lolipop update
u updated normally from ... moreA lot of countries have not got the LP update officially, it's not possible for Samsung (I am supposing here!) to release official updates for each and every region.
In any case, you can grab the latest firmware from sammobile.com and flash it on your phone. As far as I know, OEA is the latest version.
I am talking about Snapdragon models. For Exynos, the firmware version numbers are different.
a.salem, 24 Jun 2015only palm swip is working
i'm searching the screen shot button but not foundThree methods work to take a screenshot in Lollipop:
A- Power and Home button combo.
B- Palm swipe (which works half of the time with me, on S2 it worked every single time), and
C- S Pen method, from Air Command menu. The S Pen press and hold button method is nowhere to be found on LP, it's gone, officially.
Anonymous, 24 Jun 2015I picked a Note 3 on June 1, 2015. The battery drains within a few hours and I use my phone on... more3 to 4 hours of what? Be specific. If you are using data, be it 3G or 4G or whatever then 4 hours of Screen on Time is "normal". But if your phone is in standby mode for 3-4 hours and battery is draining completely from 100 to 0, then there is something severely wrong with the phone.
soubu, 25 Jun 2015I purchased a Samsung note 3 N9005 imported phone from eBay but I slipped it out of my hand , ... moreJust threaten those Samsung service centres. They are bound to service any Samsung device as long as they are original! The only difference will be you will be needing to pay as you don't have an invoice and I am sure yours is Snapdragon model, so in India warranty won't be applicable.
Talk harshly, they will take your phone and service it.
For culprits SC like this the whole image of a brand goes haywire. Really sad :( Literate persons should be recruited in service centres.
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 ... moreIf you stay on Stock kernel then you will get 6 hours of SOT at average. I have got 7 hours SOT so many times on LP that I have forgotten and 2 or 3 times I hit even 8 hours!
Yes, my phone is just 6-7 months old, so the battery is not really weak or anything, but I am person who fast charges the device and on some days I charged my device up to three times a day (don't ask why and all that). :p
Milly, 24 Jun 2015"we CAN'T Downgrade to older Ver. like from 5.0 to 4.4.4. (or 4.4.2 on S5)" see xd... moreI have gone back to KitKat (4.4.2 I think) multiple times when the first batch of Lollipop ROMs were releasing and I wasn't liking them! Whoever is saying downgrading isn't possible doesn't know anything!
Nikhil Kawatra, 24 Jun 2015It is working on my note 3. All three methods of screen shots.I think you are misunderstanding. We were talking about the feature where you would just press and hold the S Pen button on the display and it would take a screenshot. That feature, for whatever reason, is removed from Lollipop. Of course, now you can take a screenshot with S Pen from the Air Command option, but that's not what we were saying.
Nikhil Kawatra, 25 Jun 2015Note 4 is available in India for Rs 40k. This amt in India is quite a lot. In western and Euro... moreI bought my Note 3, Snapdragon model, 32GB, for 32.5k INR mate. You are mentioning the official price. I am quite certain that one will be able to get a Note 3, 32 gigs version at as low as 25-26k now. But yes, Snapdragon models won't give you any warranty, but the price of Exynos models will be more or less same. Just check on eBay India. And you will be able to get Note 4 (again SD model) for around 33k too.
Nikhil Kawatra, 25 Jun 2015You need to contact ebay [india] from where you purchased it. see whether it has International... moreSince you are using Lollipop in your Note 3, i want to know how much SOT you get and how much is your usage? I want a little detailed answer please. Also, do you face app crashes, overheating ? Any bugs ?
soubu, 25 Jun 2015I purchased a Samsung note 3 N9005 imported phone from eBay but I slipped it out of my hand , ... moreYou need to contact ebay [india] from where you purchased it. see whether it has International warranty. Even if there is a warranty you have to pay since it is accident.
I purchased a Samsung note 3 N9005 imported phone from eBay but I slipped it out of my hand , and its display became black with few scratches on glass. I contacted okhla Samsung repair centre but they refused to repair for the reason it is IMPORTED phone ...then in contacted a local repair shop in Rajender Nagar but they could not found a display which could match my phone ...Now can anyone help me where to repair my phone ...pleaseeee help me ..i live in Delhi...
RoggersClub, 25 Jun 2015Sorry bro but here Note 4 costs about 469 USD which is very best price for what phone we paid ... moreThats a gr8 price Rs 29k for Note 4. Note 3 is available in India at that price rs 27k to 28.5k.

Nice country & peoples :)

This amt in India is quite a lot. In western and European countries it may not be much. I expect Note 5 to open at same levels as LG G4 Rs 51 k. This amt is 10 months wages for 50% of working class. In fact phones with 8k-10k are very popular and are selling in millions. Note 5 is a phone only rich class can afford in India and African countries.
Abhi D, 24 Jun 2015Even Note 4 is coming with lollipop here in India now! I don't want a phone with 5.x And i ... moreIf you really want a good choice then go for Note 4 as its available at very low price now. Note 5 is coming in ending Sept. 2015. But the release price will be high & after 2-3 month, Price will be drop by 20% same as S6 variants.

And warranty is also no... moreBro If you are going through SAMMOBILE then no root is required for upgrading & downgrading... All your data will be kept as like OTA. You just need to unlock the bootloader for downgrade thats it! No root is required & no warranty void!!

The batteries are out side and could be replaced by fake ones with same number. The possibility of fake batteries planted in ur box cannot be ruled out. It could be software problem. The service center cannot gauge the usage time of any Customer. They should test the batteries in house for 24 hours at least. Software problem cannot be ruled out.
