This thing or Lumia 1520?
I only have one problem regarding Android because after installing apps it become so much lagy also it runs so much background tasks while windows don't effect even a bit even if you install apps above 20 GB. I previously owned Lumia 920 which was a dual core but was so much consistent as compared to my Galaxy s3 which I factory reset every week when I install apps.
Plz google fix this or Microsoft is taking your place
"phones w/ non removable batteries are premium.. it is a sign of a premium build.. why do you want to remove battery when you can have it replaced when damaged, can use shortcut buttons to reset, and can USE POWERBANK to charge it while on the go without having to remove battery and plugging it in power outlets..."
Hahaha, coming from an Xperia user.
Non-removable battery = Premium phone
Premium phone = You need to carry a power bank
Note 3 gives you an option to change the battery with an extra one in a minute. Charging a spent battery on your phone will take more than 2 hours. No need to carry a charger or a power bank to get you through a day if you do heavy usage. You just need that thin small extra battery.
Haris, 17 Apr 2014Tcool many thanks for your reply, pls also advise me from where do i find this option to switch off?In order to make it a long story, go to:
5. remove the tick on automatic brightness.
To make it a short story, just swipe down the screen from the top most part and uncheck the auto from the brightness icon just below the notification panel.

Don't think they would make much sale if sold in the US or elsewhere.
We just guinea pigs my friend. Waiting on note 4. Will not make the same mistake.
Mine Exynos updated to kikat, ad everything slowed, no significant change fr 4.3 except mental satisfaction. Its dated 3 march 14. What are R&D employed n Sammy doing, just out nxt update without testing nor rectify later, their cell is sold got 650$ thats it. To hell wth customers. Wake up software engineers we r tobe penalized.

Also lets suppose you have quadrant or any other benchmark app on thep hone, after playing games the scores would be super low unless you restart the phone once, or open a 2d game and try again.
This is what I have experienced, not much of a problem, but just a small wibble 4.4.2 glitch with exynos.

Now I proven that people talking about Kitkat problems as they experience are just trolling.

TheNeighbor, 17 Apr 2014My only advice is to refrain from updating till any sort of reviews come out. Yeah, it is Kitkat 4.4.2
It is already downloaded waiting to install.
For how long should I wait?
When I press later I got the option for 30 minutes before it will remind me again to install.
