...and realized why I stopped using it. Long story: I got the Note 3 July 2014 as part of an upgrade promotion. I originally had Galaxy S3 which I had for a year before that. After the usual BS lag with TouchWiz and a disappointing upgrade to KitKat not giving me the new, improved TouchWiz found on the Galaxy S5, I decided to root and put a custom ROM known as HyperDrive Rls 8 which did give me the S5 TouchWiz and its improvements such as the updated S Health. Then I went on vacation and visited a pet deer someone had (I'm a deer lover if you can't tell by my avatar) and for some odd reason he thought my Note 3 was a chew toy and as I tried to get a photo of him he put the thing in his mouth and drooled all over it. I quickly got it back and cleaned it off, but then it went dead. Took the battery out and let it dry and I got it to power back on, and I know S-Voice worked as I could launch her from the lock screen but the screen was dead, wouldn't light up. When I got home I got a Galaxy S4 as a temporary replacement until I could get the Note 3 peoperly dried off. A week later I tried popping my SIM back in and the Note 3's Super AMOLED screen came back to life. But...now my phone was literally burning a hole in my pocket, once giving me a small burn on my leg, and also becoming unresponsive, freezing at the lockscreen, and only giving me six hours of standby (!) And the battery stats had 'Android OS' and 'Android system' being top of the list using around 70% and 45% each. I would pull the battery and reset it and it would respond for up to an hour and start doing it all over again. I later bought an LG G3 and used that convinced the Note 3 had a hardware problem. More recently I wanted to see if a factory reset would fix the Note 3 and it did. For a week. Excellent battery life and performance. Then it decided to start burning my leg and lagging and getting six to eight hours standby again. I have done everything I could to no avail. Factory reset? Nope. Clear cache and dalvik? Nope. Delete all Google apps? Nope. Turn off mobile data and use wifi? Nope. Battery pulls fix it for a hour or two and it does it again. CPU usage is always 80%+ but I cannot pinpoint one app causing it. It is so bad my Gear 2 stops communication with the phone reporting no connection even though Gear app says it's connected. If I battery pull it works until the phone gets red hot again. Texting is also unreliable. I can receive but have to battery pull before it allows me to send messages. Phone calls are fine. Playing music is fine. I can browse the web. Here's another weird issue. If I try installing apps be it sideloading apk or using Play Store, they hang indefinitely at 'installing'. If I battery pull and try again just before it starts to lag, it will install fine. So now texting and installing are affected. Is it a defective device? Damaged from vacation? Why did it work fine a week awhile back before acting up?
