Have owned note 3 for 1 year, been so very satisfied with it, cud not stop recommend it to others, until a week ago gorilla glass all of a sudden cracked on me, while I was doing some major multitasking, downloading and surfing, it became quite warm in my hands, which apparently caused the battery to expand and it affected the glass, tiny hairline crack throughout entire screen. Without me ever dropping it or applying any pressure, have always taken great care of that expensive baby! I did a research online, it seems to be a rather common issue with galaxies on many forums. Samsung are of course denying it's any of their defect. Warranty will not cover it, for you can't prove you didn't drop it or sat on it. Very devastating, been saving quite few months to afford this fragile piece of junk.

But if its come with Google final version ANDROID M then Note 5 gonna rock like S6. OMG I'm waiting for the KING yeah! Definitely buying it! I impressed with 4100Mah battery & 4k Screen B)

Lollipop is only good for max. 1 month then after its starts lagging. I also upgraded to lollipop & used for 10-15 days. Starting days i love the update but then after its starts little lagging. Not completely stable! Those person are using their cell for business or they want their cell completely functioning, Kitkat is best for those ppl. And yes whatever you said I agree with you. New Touchwiz & all new Note 4 features i like it too. But old one is stable for me hehe!

@ wilson. You should read up lolliop before you update. Its alright ppl saying update. Its your phone and it should be your choice and nobody elses. My friends are still have problems with it. Battery draining, ram getting eating up etc. But at the end of the day it will be your choice.

RoggersClub, 14 Jun 2015We will need you on our Note 5 forum. Everyone should be like you brother! :)I agree rogger... Sooner or later we will upgrade our phone and move to the forum with the phone model we used. At least when we leave this note 3 forum we have a great experience helping each other and the people who helped us.. By December or january I am planning to upgrade to note 4. :-)

And others find it alright and if its running well then thats great. Diff ppl have diff views on it through their own experiences with it. But anyone who has lollipop and its working great then well and good. But i make up my own mind if i want it or not.

RoggersClub, 14 Jun 2015This phone is just for 2-3 months more. Then no one will like to look at this phone. After upd... moreI have updated to Lollipop as soon as it came out, and have been using it for past couple of months, other than some minor annoyances there is absolutely nothing wrong with it! Was KitKat more stable than LP? Probably! That doesn't mean LP is bad or anything, in fact for some stuffs its better than KitKat!
When I got this phone it ran on KitKat, it was a damn stable OS, I loved it, but hated the all black/ darkish background, and now its running on LP, and I love it even more, with whitish backgrounds. And now when Xposed is working and all nothing could go wrong.
Also Lollipop updates are releasing pretty fast too, OB6, then OD6 and now OD8 is out too. Memory leakage problem is almost solved now. I am quite sure Samsung will release Android M update for Note 3.
Note 3 is my 34th phone (have lost count, so not sure about the number), and its the best phone I have ever used.
So I am not sure what your comment means!!!

There will always be someone trying to intimidate users. It goes on all the time on every forum. Its nothing new. Thats the truth. So let peace reign. So far its good. Hopefuly it will stay like that. But anything can happen!

They asking me to upgrade for s6. But I'm waiting for note 5 cus Note series are best. Best only if you don't update to next os versions haha! And sd card slot is not there for performance tweaks. I will buy 128GB if its sets into my budget otherwise 64GB will be enough by doing some compromise like less movie. For movies and games i have my Ipad Air 64GB. So doesn't matter for what I go hehe!

After ... moreWhat does battery usage say when you go into settings and then battery rodger? Something is draining your battery quickly. Maybe an app in background is eating up your battery. But ive never come across this before. Maybe if you google it you will find an answer to your problem. The only last thing i can say is take it to service centre if your phone is under warranty.
Guyz atlast some gud news, LTE vesion got lollipop update in UAE through its customer service center.
Does anyone know What is the reason behind it?
I charged my battery 100%. After turning on phone, Battery drops to 20% or 34% like this. After reboot it keep getting low on 20%. Sometimes its charging at 74% and after 1 hour it droping to 54%.
I TRIED POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS:
Cleared cache partition, Master Reset, Changed the battery twice, Changed the firmware regions.
Please give me solution for this. Thank You
