That such a bad move. I really like my note 3. But i really dont want lollipop. I dont think they will give themes for it.
Hello guyz! If you want more battery life on your BEAUTIFUL Note 3, follow this steps:
1> Drain your battery at 10%.
2> Switch off your phone and connect the charger, don't unplug till it's full 100%.
3> Now unplug the charger, switch on your note 3 and connect the charger till its fully 100%.
4> Power Off and connect charger again till 100%. Now unplug and Turn ON your note 3. Now if you connect charger the battery shows full within 2 sec. That's verify that your battery is completely full.
Conclusion: You will easily get 7 hours of screen time Or 3 days of backup (WiFi) without touching games.
Lakewolf, 29 Dec 2014As you know im a loyal note 3 lover.and was a samsung ultimate buyer.but im still on the Hunt ... moreI have my Note 3 for a year, and I will be keeping this for about another year, then I will be hunting for a new one. I like Note becoz of its user friendly features and easy connectivity. Wifi Direct transfers, DLNA connectivity with Smart TVs all are easy to use, the only other set which I liked is Nexus 6 but I don't think I will get all these in N6 and no expandable memory with a price tag of Rs.50000 for 64 gb is a big no for me. If I had to buy now I will opt for Note 4 which will be a value for money. So I am keeping this for more few months. Lets see what Note 5 brings. In India only Samsung had some resale values other sets are a huge loss of money while reselling.

Hope they add some customization regarding the backgrounds, rest all can be customized such as sizes and layout of icons and fonts with any available launchers.

Lollipop will have bugs to until they can send out system updates to fix them. Kitkat was the same wen we first got it. I dont mind moving my apps from internal memory to SD card. Some apps are not made to save to SD card. But if they can give black theme then i might think about updating. But for now im happy with my note 3 as it is:-)

But until i know they will i wont be updating to it. I know a lot of people wouldnt mind the white screen. Im just speaking for myself:-)

I will deal with lollipop, and you already know that this kitkat have some bugs in it like Can't write to external SD card, Air gesture is not working, etc. And I'm remember that GSMA posting about Samsung might bring theme support to TouchWiz in its major update. And maybe this is a solution for you who don't like a white background.
Well just seen a preview lollipop on note 3 on youtube. Its back to white screen like many years ago. Sooo old fashion. I would rather have black screen. Its does not swipe in settings. The system status bar comes and goes. Maybe they will fix it. Its not a good future experence for samsung note 3 users. I for one will not be updating! As i said b4 lollipop is soo old fashion . WHITE BACKGROUND!

But im sure there will be bugs in it like when we first got kitkat there was some bugs in it. It always happens wen we get a big update . im still not sure if i want to update my note 3. I'll have to read up more about it and look on youtube to see what it really looks like.

You have to replace your motherboard once in a year. That's costs 1/3 of your smartphone price. Otherwise Z2 is good, But Samsung is winner in this comparison!
