    SCREEN TIME, bud, SCREEN TIME. Like this:
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...5-20-17-01.png

    Where is yours?
    10% of 6 days is equal to 6dx24h=144 hours, 10% of (144 hours) = 14.4 hours according to Google and according to the image below. 26% of calls, 7%of media server, But There is something running on it without the screen being on. like music player and phone calls. where the screen switches off.
    This is a 3 month old phone. I've finished fiddling with it. Now I'm using it as a regular phone and I'm just checking to find out how much I can push it. so far so good!
    If my screen was on 85% of the time, I guess it would not be any different from what you are getting.
    I don't have what you are requesting because I did not save it. I was not intending to post. I was only taking screenshots for my reference.
    I may be wrong on calculating the hours.

    That is not screen time. Tap the screen part of that and another screen will pop up with how long the screen has actually been on, not how much battery the screen has been using. Your missing the point of what is being asked.

    I get what you are asking. I did not take that particular screenshot that you are asking to view. Sorry.
    That was an old screenshot taken a week ago, with moderate usage. The new screenshot I can take now is with totally light usage and it would not tally
    I was not particularly interested in screen time, as to the overall usage of the smartphone as a phone with a little bit of music and videos thrown in.

    Even with a period of time that I had no signal, my note 2 still lasted through the whole day. I also used Google Music for about an hour or so.

    So after fairly heavy media streaming. I'm at 17%. I'm talking about 9hrs streaming over TuneIN. Using 4G. Screen time is only 2.5 hrs but that makes sense since I was streaming. I should be able to last another few hours before I'm completely drained. Loving this battery life.

    Alright, so I got my Note 2 a couple days ago and I love it. The only problem is, I'm not getting nearly the kind of battery life that everyone else is getting. I'm gonna upload some screenshots of my usage today, and I'd appreciate it if you guys could help me out as far as how i could get better battery life. So today, I turned my brightness all the way to the lowest setting, power saving was on almost all day, I switched my mobile network setting to CDMA only since I don't get LTE here, and then my wifi was on most of the day. I'm not sure why my battery life is so low compared to everyone else's, but if someone could tell me what's going on I'd really appreciate the help. The only thing I could think of is the mobile network is doing this. Now the completely red part you'll see in the picture could've been avoided using airplane mode and I'll do that in the future (it wss sitting in a locker at the gym), but other than that one section, I need the mobile network to be on so I can receive any texts/calls. The Note 2 is an amazing phone, but if the battery is gonna hamper my ability to use all the features freely, it would be really disappointing. So again, if you have anything I could try, please tell me. Thanks.

    It lasts so much longer than any phone I've ever had in the past. I unplug it from the charger at 7:30 am and the battery will be down to 45% at 2 am. It's awesome.

    My first suggestion is to get rid of mobile lookout. There is no reason for it. At least not on the note. 4 plus hours of screen time isn't that bad. Are you using Gmail or the other email app. What's syncing?

    Yes, this and only this.

    I can get about 10 hours of screen time on a full charge. I think that's fantastic. I keep a charger at work for a quick 1 hour top-up mid-afternoon to get me through the evening without battery warnings. My 4S got about 4 hours screen time. Great device, tiny battery = use it less.

    What's mobile lookout and how do I get rid of it? And I'm using the standard email app with two email accounts set up, but they're both set to only sync manually. Notifications for all my social networking sites and games are turned off as I check them everyday and don't need the phone to waste battery fetching for that stuff. When I go to settings under the "accounts" section, all of my accounts say "sync disabled." So I'm not really sure what's going on unless the mobile connection is draining the battery.

    And I feel like this wasn't to me as the guy below me has "lookout" in his screenshot and I do not. Whoops.....

    How are you getting 8hrs of screen time? Mind posting your settings. I'm topping off around 6 or so.

    I can't believe what a difference turning off the 4 system sounds (keytones, touch, screen lock and haptic) makes. At the time of writing I am usually around 15-20% depending on usage with system sounds on. Currently I am at 47% with the 4 system sounds turned off.

    I do wish they would make the sounds more efficient. I don't get why they would cause wakelocks, especially if you have the phone on mute (not even vibrate). There's a serious flaw there and it's a shame to have to turn them off.

    Ok so here's a little update to my post yesterday. In short, I'm still not getting nearly the kind of battery life that most people are talking about. I got more time out of the phone today, but I was barely using it until the end. As you can see in my screenshots, the screen was on for around an hour less than yesterday, but still went down to 11% with that time. My mobile connection was much better today, wifi was off when I wasn't using it, power saving was on the whole time, and the brightness was all the way down most of the time. I really wanna get my battery to its full potential, so if someone could help me out it would be awesome.

    Here's a suggestion. I have noticed better battery life when I let the Sprint connection optimization app work its magic. Especially when you have no connection to the network. Give it a try if you aren't already.
