Post #2 Titled Rooting and TWRP is as concise as it gets with very little digressions I think
I started this thread when there was zero info on this device so I gathered all that I could.
I made my own scatter file as no official one was available also there was No TWRP again down to me.
I will be sure NOT to share in future and leave things up to the pro's like you
peace.

Sadly obsolete because there is no official source code for this device so virtually zero chance of any OS updates.
Android 6 is still valid and currently holds a good sized share so will receive support by app developers for a good while yet.

Thank you!

Battery has a pretty small capacity so not great for heavy users eg; gaming and constant social media use.
I used to use mine for calls, texts, check emails, playing Music and some web browsing and the phone would last all day with probably 40% > 50% power left.
Obviously battery life is 100% dependant on the user and really a nonsensical question so the best answer is that the T3 is no better or worse than other devices with a similar sized battery probably.
If you live in the UK I have one New unused T3 for sale.

As @bigrammy states, there is no official kernel source code for the phone available, and Lumigon no longer exist as a company.

I did the leg work towards the end of last year to get into contact with as many ex-Lumigon employees as I could, through LinkedIn. Every one of them, when I asked about obtaining the kernel source code for the Lumigon T3 all said the same thing. That all of the Android development for Lumigon's phones were outsourced to a company based in China who have also now gone bust themselves. So there really is no way to get it unfortunately. A very disappointing situation for such a nice phone.
