Dang I want here when that was going on. I'll totally test new roms and such.

How about the international version of the S5? Same story as the Note 3. Custom kernels, but no custom ROMs. You can all thank Knox for that, and that's why i'm never ever touching a Samsung again.


But you know... enjoy that Note 3, OP

Edit: Some strange font change going on here... meh.. i'll let it be.

Granted, T-Mobile (US) version has bootloader unlocked.
I just wish ZU battery can take at least 5000 charges before 15% degradation.

Looks like the Ultra's battery quality is good. I've had mine since september last year, and i still get 6-7 hours of screentime (depending on usage), and that's what i got 6 months ago. I hope the quality is as good as HTCs batteries, because i have an old Desire HD that's 3 years old and the original battery is still kicking and lasting about a day (depending on usage).

Since ZU battery is NOT removable, I really hope the battery can take at least 2000 charges before losing 15% capacity.
3 charge per day on extreme usage * 365 days * 2 years = around 2000 charges.

Wow

The battery may last better if charged slower (less heat) so i would do the over night ones via usb.

Ps you can change the battery quite easily, and just need the battery, a glue/seal set, a suction cup and a hair drier
