    Also I would like to know if I can get the Android update 4.4.4
    Okay , so I bought that phone for as much as 100 $ and after I examined it , both labels : the one an the back of the phone after you remove battery and the battery label say " Made in Korea by Samsung " .
    From searches on google , it says that this phone is a Chinese clone , however I don't see anything lacking on it except 4G service and the battery which is 2800 mAh , but it drains very quickly...
    I read that updating at Android 4.4.4 must resolve some battery issuies ,,
    So , is this phone original & can it be updated? Currently I run Android 4.4.2

    4.4.4 is not available as of yet officially. You can get ROMs that are 4.4.4 for the Note 3, but they are custom made ones you have to be rooted for and flashed by you.

    It appears you have a Chinese variant of the Note 3 especially for China, I would imagine getting hold of any custom fortunate for it will be difficult.

    So , this phone was made in Korea for China or in China for China?
    What means ROM & What means rooting your device ? What is that for? And how to root?
