Hello fellas. I am having a note 3 N900 exynos variant which i had bought in dec 2013. I had rooted my fon and was going smoothly. I was fascinated by the charming looks of lollipop and i updated my os. All that glitters is not gold- the update literally taught me that. Very poor battery performance (100 to 0 in some 8 to 10h with screen time of 3h ,just moderate use with internet on. No gaming, no movies etc). I decided to buy a new battery thinking it will solve the issue and bought it online frm Amazon aftr reading all the reviews. I got the product today ans its much worse than my original battery. By 5h the battery is 38% !!. I am asking for a refund for the battery which does look original in its case ,serial no etc. Now i feel the major battery eater is lollipop itself and now i am thinking of going back to kitkat. I have a few questions, pls do answer them.

1. Can i revert back to kitkat like how i updated using odin and the firmware frm sammobiles ??

2. Will rooting the lollipop and installing greenify ,tb etc and removing the bloatwares help improve the battery life and reduce the ram usage ??

3. I would like to know wats the battery life of similar users with a 2yr old note 3

4. Please give detailed description of reverting back to kitkat ,things to be taken care not to brick the device


Tons of thanks in advance ☺

Yes, you can revert to KitKat, 4.4.2, any time you want.

But one thing, I am sure you took the OTA route for upgrading to Lollipop right? If that's the case then kindly do one more thing, take a backup of your apps and data via Titanium and wipe the phone COMPLETELY and flash Lollipop. See if the battery is better or not.

No, my phone isn't two years old, but it will be full one year very soon, and after upgrading to Lollipop my battery life has improved, in face quite a lot. However I am using the Snapdragon version.

What does the update add ? Isn't android 6.0 a part of the 2year update system of android. Since marshmallow came before the 2 years of note 3 were up.

As per the rumours, we wont get an upgrade unfortunately, to push us towards upgrading our phones.
It is quite difficult to believe anyone stating that they will push a major update to note 3 users.
Even if they do(i wish), they will take a hell of a long time to do so. :(

    just for laugh

    ignore these types of posts:

    1. where can i buy sm n9005 (the sd 800 version) galaxy note 3 in India (even though u cant get one officially)? and then someone replies "Gaffar market"...(yes, why not? best way to advertise grey market)

    2.I'm having so much trouble with the galaxy note 3..it has killed my cat, destroyed my house..and still i don't want to go to service center..instead i will switch to x,y,z brand and now everything is OK..(seriously?)

    3.i have found a magic shop and the shop owner wants to donate his gn3z so i got a galaxy note 3 @ 30 k with bill and warranty (oh, im so jealous of u)

    last but not the least and most lamest

    4. sd800 version is better than exynos version..(lol)

    Enable Unlock Effects :)

    Hi, Im just sharing @xperiacle, who made this amazing job for our device. It brings all unlock effects without root or any other methods. Just simply install and select the unlocking method :)
