I bought my Samsung Galaxy Note3 (SM-N9005) 2 years ago. And it came with KitKat, which was so powerful & easy to use without any issues. It consumes less RAM & not draining the battery much when the screen is off.
But after receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop, the things just started to get weird. It consumes more RAM capacity and drained the battery within few hours. And I tried everything to fix it because this device needs to be speedy.
After receiving the new "Smart Manager" application update the Android 5.0 issues became less painful. and after update I factory rest my phone, and it really worked for me.
Now I've been using Andriod 5.0 for nearly 06 months and I could recommend Lollipop update to anyone with 100% confidence. Everyone please make sure to Factory Rest your device after updating your phone. Because it is the only way to experience the fully version with it's own speed. I hope this will help every Galaxy Note3 user in the world.
This device is such a useful mobile to anyone who loves to feel the true Galaxy experience. :)

Anonymous, 11 Jun 2016I coudnt understand can u explain it bit further Why do you want to downgrade to kk? Its got problems. Stay on 5.0. If you have problems then do a reset which solves some isues. Backup all your stuff first. Make sure all your apps are updated for lollipop.
Kitkat all the way? Ah no! Deff not! Enjoying 5.0. Problem free for me and other users.

Anonymous, 10 Jun 2016kit kat is old firmware and has bugs too..thats why google released lollipop to fix the bugs..... moreI totally agree. Kk is old to me. 5.0 for me personally is better. And yes updates are important. It would be good if samsung give us 6.0 as it has the specs to run it Anonymous.

KentLim, 07 Jun 2016Are there anyone faced the problem that action memo on s view cover window has stopped working... moreNo. Im running lollipop and it works fine on mine. Tried it on my partners and at first it didnt work. I open and closed s view a couple times and action memo works fine now on my partners. Settings, contacts and torch also works fine. Remove your s view cover and then put it back on again and see if works. Hope this helps.
