    Default About to get a new phone

    Any steps back on the Note 3 from the Note 2? I have to get away from this Maxx due to WiFi issues so I may have to pay $700. How many hours of screen time (I'll be using Verizon) do you get in average before the battery dies?

    Thanks.

    I think if you just kept your brightness to about half or nearly three quarters, you might be fine right there. That is a big screen and the display will obviously eat up the battery. Other than that, good luck with the new device!

    Depends on your usage. Some get 5+ hours easily that I've read. I personally get 5+ but honestly, I haven't run it dead yet so I can't give an accurate assumption but I can say that it lasts me all day and then some.

    Hope this helps ya!

    depends

    if you are on 3G or 4G most of the day you likely will get around 4 hours screen time. If on wifi? you are looking at 5-6 hours screen time.

    Either way you will or should get at least 1 day of battery life. Last week I got over 2 days battery life but I didn't use it loads.

    I always set my Galaxy on auto brightness to save battery. Samsung's auto brightness seems to work good.

    I know I've seen it here before but is there any way to remove the Google Plus pictures from my gallery? Do I just delete them online?

    Edit: Nevermind, I was able to only show the images on my device by going to Gallery > Menu Button > Show

    Edit 2: Never mind resets immediately. Any ideas

    Set what you want the Gallery to show, then go to settings>device>applications manager>scroll to all then scroll down to Gallery. Clear cache and data and reboot. this "should" fix it as that worked for showing unwanted facebook albums.

    Under Google account settings, did you uncheck sync of Google pictures?

    Thank you. Must have had a brain fart. Disabled sync of Picasa.

    My only issue is it still shows all the albums when I want to attach a photo in Messaging and Hangouts.
