    Good for you... I'm sure you'll also enjoy those Apple updates crippling older models so they are painfully slow to use. Oh and just because the older model has the latest iOS... it doesn't mean it can actually access all the features of that OS release.

    And what exactly are you missing out on by not having the absolute latest Android right away? If you are that much of a techie... just flash it on yourself!

    You're clearly not very savvy with Android, are you? I've been running Lollipop on my N900W8 (All Canadian Carriers) since it was released. You do realise you can install TWRP and flash a T-Mobile custom ROM that features Lollipop (AKA all of them) on your Rogers/Telus/Bell/Any Canadian Galaxy Note 3, right?

    OMG SERIOUSLY?! I've been asking that question in the regular note 3 forum but i didn't get a solid answer hey, do I have to have a custom recovery to flash the T-Mobile version? Can't I have everything stock?

    Are you serious? Even a tiny bit of research on your own could give you that info. And yes you need a custom recovery - it allows you to install the customized ROM. That's the whole point lol. How could you consider swapping to Apple? No such thing as custom ROMs. You're limited to the OS they want you to use, the way they want it to be used. No customization. Yuck. The moral of the story is, you can get Lollipop on your Canadian Note, just do the research :P

    I have googled this a lot but I didn't get an answer... All I find is forms on cm 12 for Canadian note 3 which I do not want. Googling on how to get a T-Mobile ROM onto a Canadian note 3 didn't give me any results. Also I don't want a custom recovery so I guess there is no point now , might as well wait 4 more months till Canadian carriers release it

    It shouldn't be that much longer, carriers are rolling it out for S5 and Note 4, I've got it on my spare phone (HTC One M7) - it should be coming soon.

    Where in EMAD's text did they say they were buying an old iPhone? I read that they are considering buying an iPhone, which means could be the latest iPhone which definitely works well with the newest iOS update. I too am sick of waiting for unknown time periods until Samsung gets their act together and gets the update out to consumers. Samsung needs to get rid of their piece of crap app loader, it sucks and is full of useless software that I doubt most people use or even know exists. We should at least be able to uninstall what we don't want. I will either buy the Nexus 6 or iPhone 6 Plus next. Apple makes a much better phone in terms of design aesthetics (except for the S6).

    So does anyone know if Rogers is officially updating to Lollipop OTA or do I have to unlock bootloader and root my device for this?

    Rogers own timeline says 5.0.2 is coming to our phones this month... so just hang in there and wait for the official version.

    I don't know if it's a placebo effect but lollipop feels so much faster than kitkat. Battery life however is not so great but it is manageable.

    Are you sure you want to flash bells version? I see on Rogers official website that they are rolling out 5.0.2 in April (that's right now) so you can expect the official OTA by the end of the month. If you still want to flash bells (it's only 5.0) just download the firmware from sammobile then follow the instructions here

    Ps. That's not my video, it's some random persons on YouTube
