Great phone with android 4.3 jellybean but after update certain things r not as before.
1) battery drains faster
2) no whatsapp in pen window. Thats really bad. Roll back to 4.3 plz..
3) RAM usage in 4.4.2 should be better but it directly opposite. It consumes more than 1.7GB as compared to android 4.3 the RAM usage was about 1.1GB
[deleted post]Everyone, don't listen to this troll. Stay away from the T2 Ultra - It only comes with 8GB model, has only LESS THAN 5GB of user internal memory, and 1GB of RAM. Useless!
I've put root with the stock 4.4.2 update for the Note 3. I couldn't stand the bloatware operating, and froze most of them with Titatnium Backup. I'm still having trouble with writing on the micro SD card using Astro. Titanium Backup can't also write on to the external memory. Still looking for a fix that works.
Battery usage time is still indistinguishable from 4.3. I'm not getting any better or worse battery life frm my very heavy usage patterns. I can drain the entire battery from downloading 20GB+ worth of data in 4 hours via LTE.
More as I get to the weekend.

If you are not able to open link below are the tips from the link.
Open your Galaxy device Settings.
Scroll down to Developer Options.
Okay, now tap on Developer Options and scroll down to the following options:
Windows animation scale
Transition animation scale
Animator duration scale
Tap all the 3 options one by one and set the Animation Scale configuration either OFF or to 0.5x (for less animation effect).
Besides, you can also try turning “Force GPU Rendering” option ON by checking the box (avoid this step if you play 3D games on your device).
Finally, you can free some more RAM by setting your device to kill any activity as soon as you leave it. To do this scroll down to “Do not keep activities” option and select it.
Note 3 is an amazing phone.......If you put great antivirus programme like AVG, Quickheal, McAfee etc.
