    Default Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Draining Battery

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm new here and have been searching the forum for some help but I am not the brightest star in the sky when it comes to technology.
    I have taken some screen shot in hope that someone could help me as I have to charge my phone 2-3 times a day and that is just about every day! I am currently on 4.3 OS.
    I would appreciate your help

    From your screenshots I don't see any 'irregular' patterns to battery drainage. Your main culprit, of course, is the screen, but from your first couple of screenshots, losing 5% from 18 minutes of screen-on time is not that bad for a phone with a large screen. It also depends on your brightness settings on how fast it will drain the battery.

    Also, your mobile signal strength is very poor. The lower the signal strength, the higher the power consumption your phone will see on trying to maintain a link to the cell towers (think of it as how loud you speak to someone who's right next to you and how loud you need to yell to someone who's next door).

    Also, have you ever changed your battery? This is an 'old' model, and if you still have the original battery, chances are it's very well into 50% of it's original capacity.

    Mobile security uses its fair share of your battery. Just a thought that you might ditch it and see if your battery lasts much longer. Keep brightness down if u can and turn on power saving mode
