And FYI in Note 3, neither it's present in Jelly bean 4.3 nor in 4.4.2 Kit Kat.
A geek, 09 Feb 2014-1&3:you say it's not sufficient,and has shorter life.The phone shows when it's battery re... moreFor your information, I have a 7000mAh capacity power bank for over a year now. I still use it occasionally for long trips and powering up my devices like my Galaxy Note 8 which has a fixed battery.
But for my daily routine, I carry my Galaxy Note 3 only with a spare battery.
1&3: The most effective way to charge a battery is to turn off the device. Heat is the number one enemy and shortens the life cycle of the DEVICE's battery. Keeping your device on or worse, using it while charging generates more heat.
2: Wearing out the micro USB port does happen, power connection loosens. I know two people who had their devices fixed with that problem and had to wait days to get them back.
4: A power bank is heavy and mine is 22mm thick and I don't carry a bag with me all the time. Do you like carrying something twice heavier and more than twice the thickness of your device every day?
5: You can stop your ignorant acting. There are battery cradles that you place your empty battery to be charged, and you need to connect it with the charger powered by the electrical outlet. You DON't need to be hassled by waiting to using the device as the ONLY place to get your battery charged. Is that clear enough for you?
Here's a picture of a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Battery set. It comes with a battery case too:
Yeah, a battery cradle is also an "independent accessory". It's an easy plug and sleep for the night. The difference is, you don't waste your time and energy like carrying a power bank, at home or elsewhere to keep things juiced up.
You better come up with more reasonable stuff with your Sony Xperia user experience with a fixed battery. Can you list 10? Ok,make that 5 good advantages of carrying a power bank. So far, all you came up with is "Sammy paid trolls are only one s who appreciate it."

Battery bank still needs to be recharge at home, so you can use it again the following day, it would be the same scenario with an extra battery pack charging at home using a separate compatible battery charger.

Higher than Android JB 4.1 no longer supports that feature.
A Geek, 09 Feb 2014Sure using a second battery isn't a thing that just a geek can do,but how many people use a ... moreMake a survey. Nobody talks about it. Battery kits are being sold everywhere. You mostly see power banks being used because of iPhone users and other users of uni-bodied devices. You think carrying a power bank is way more efficient? State reasons that make sense.
I'm one who use this more practical method of changing batteries when needed, and charging the spent one at home. What's complicated about that?
I've already enumerated 10 good reasons for a removable battery system, and I've given the small number of advantages of a fixed battery system. Can you name more?
Is this eating you up since you are an Xperia user who is justifying the constant usage of a power bank to keep your Sony Xperia device alive daily?

Utorrent works fine, and I can get 600kbps to over 1mbps per title. I've just consumed over 80GB of data for over a period of 3 weeks.
Unfortunately, the Note 3 does not have a lock to LTE only option. You can use LTE Discovery app and its paid version automates cycling to LTE.

Note 3 flashlight have very low brightness nad intensity compared to note 2. On note 2 is like 3x better.
TheNeighbor, 07 Feb 2014You said, "Removable batteries are for geeks." twice.
While you sport carrying a... more-1&3:you say it's not sufficient,and has shorter life.The phone shows when it's battery reaches 100% doesn't it?so that less battery life seems not reasonable.Or if you meant power bank has shorter battery life,you can imagine it is 9000MAs instead of 10000,or it takes longer time to charge.still it has 3-4 times bigger capacity than a second battery.
-Heavy extra battery that has relatively more capacity.if you have problem with it there are battery banks with less capacity.
I think battery bank is much better in shape than a mobile battery.also it works with different gadgets.
-2:funniest statement ever heard.If you think so you shouldn't charge your phone because if you use it's micro USB port,it maybe gets damaged.hahahaha.
-5:Just some second to change battery?then how does it get charged itself???you have to put it in your phone at home to get charged separately.that means you have to charge your main battery at home to 100% then bring it out and put second one in the phone and wait till it gets 100% too!Thats a nightmare ! ! ! but power bank is just a independent accessory,and you can use it seperately.If second battery provides saves you some time outdoor,it wastes you some at home cause you should put it in charge and not using it to get full charged,so it gets useless at home.Its the second time I explained it for you but seems your eyes are closed not seeing it.
So you can see all of things you mentioned as disadvantages are actually advantages.Reamovable batterys just makes phones production cheaper so that your dear Sammy makes more money.And Sammy paid trolls are only one s who appreciate it.
TheNeighbor, 09 Feb 2014It's the service you have that's slow. I get up to 2mbps with my LTE service. am on lte too... download is fast on other apps except for utorrent.
do u have an apps where I can see speed of lte in my area? thanks
