    Hi,

    I have been using the phone since launch, and I noticed that even if I uninstall apps, files still remain. Been thinking of upgrading, but the phone still works. I am currently on my 3rd battery, and 4th S Pen tip. Still not sure if I should upgrade, but I have seen the latest benchmarks and the Note 3 is quite behind compared to other current phones (antutu benchmark).

    I also noticed that whatsapp is the main cause hogging the phone's memory. This app cannot be transferred to the memory card. I don't game on my phone (uninstall all games to free space), using it for emails and S Pen, but recently even that is a problem as I cannot reply to emails as the loading screen after hitting the reply button takes time to load. I do use a lot of widgets and widget buttons on the phone screen.

    Should I factory reset it or perform other methods to get a clean phone? Maybe this will help speed up performance of the phone? Maybe install a newer OS?

    What items I should backup if resetting is the way?
