How to Convert Galaxy Note 3 into Note 5!


howtoconvert-note3-into-note5

Can’t afford a Note 5?  Perhaps you don’t like the fact that Note 5 no longer has microSD slot and removable battery?

No worries, you can easily convert your Galaxy Note 3 into a Note 5 using the DarkLord N5 ROM.

Based on latest Android 5.1.1 Note 5 firmware, the DarkLord N5 ROM brings you all the features of Note 5 plus much much more.  Inside, you will find everything you can do on the Note 5 including themes, settings, UI, etc…etc…  For S-Pen, you will be able to enjoy all of the new Note 5 features along with screen-off memo that works flawless.  Essentially, the DarkLord N5 ROM makes your Note 3 better than Note 5 with support for IR blaster, multi-window for any apps, People Edge/App Edge from S6 Edge Plus, and more.

Performance is decent on its stock kernel with excellent battery life, probably much better than on a real Note 5.  With custom kernel, you should also be able to improve the performance quite a bit, I should have an update on that also.

Overall, if you want to convert your Note 3 into Note 5, the DarkLord N5 ROM will do just that.  Of course, you won’t be able to get any feature on the Note 5 that requires Note 5 hardware such as the fingerprint sensor but otherwise it’s simply amazing.  So, definitely give this guy a go this week(end) and do let me know what you think!
