    Default Note 3: The battery life is the best I have seen from my experience

    I have had the s2 skyrocket, s3,s4 and nexus 5 and by far this phone has the best battery life out there. 7 hours off the charger and still 67% battery life. I was considering going back to iPhone because for me the battery was always better compared to my previous phones but now I don't have to since this thing lasts forever

    If it lasts you a day or more then it's what you want...

    With moderate use, this thing last 3 days on a charge.

    Just be sure to keep an eye on the battery drain big whenever happens and fix it promptly.

    Completely agree. The Note 3 has got outstanding battery life. I can easily go the whole day on heavy usage and not have a worry in the world!
    They were smart when they made this battery 3200 mah

    Im surprised you had bad battery life with your Nexus 5.
    I have the Note 3, HTC One M7 and Nexus 5 (sold yesterday) when using all of them i found the Nexus 5 and Note 3 had excellent battery life. But from what i have read that can be largely attributed to the SnapDragon 800 processors. They are a lot more energy efficient.

    I would be lucky to get about 10-15% at 9-10 hours with me turning on airplane mode on the nexus 5 for about 4-5 hours as well. Mind you I also like brightness on around 85%. My galaxy note 3 is about 10 hours with LTE on and 85% brightness and only 71% battery life left

    With super heavy use, it lasts easily all day with a little leftover. Moderate use, 2 to 3 days. And it charges at record speed, which I really like.

    How do you define super heavy use? How many hours screen on time at what brightness?

    My Verizon Note3 (JellyBean OS), by far has the BEST battery life of ALL my previous cell/smatrphones. I was really suprised considering the HUGE screen size.....I'm HAPPY (Minon song)

    Mine is about 6 months old and the battery life has been great. HOWEVER, the last 2 days, something is sucking it dry. I haven't done anything differently. I haven't downloaded anything, changed settings or used it more. It's barely lasting 12 hours. Any suggestions as to where to look? Something must have updated, but I can't imagine what.

    Anyway, try wiping the cache

    60% brightness and for the first 3 months, I used it for everything because my iPad was busted and the Note Pro LTE wasn't out yet, so I did everything with it: homework assignments, client invoicing, job bids, emails, text messaging, calls, even camera use and Internet surfing.
    Granted, I took it down to barely 3% battery but it gave me a full day of work without any interruptions.
    now I do my work mostly from my note pro so my phone only needs charging every other day, sometimes it goes for 3 days, depending.

    I had a Note 10.1 briefly in 2012, but it didn't meet my needs, it was too buggy, not enough storage and I had a lot of issues with the S pen. I ended up exchanging it for an iPad which I was somewhat satisfied with at the time.
    Now I have the Note Pro LTE, 32 GB on board and a 64 GB card in, and I'm really happy with it.
    It's a huge learning curve, I'm still learning, lol, but I love it.
    I do charge it once a day but again, since I no longer use a laptop, it gets heavy use and it hasn't crapped out on me yet.

    Ah ok. I don't know that one but I remember reading it was wifi only which doesn't work for me. I'm on the move constantly and I need LTE.

    I have t-mobile and unlimited data and 3 gb data of tethering so I can use my phone connection for data with my wife model. Plus I don't feel the need to pay extra for it

    Well the note 10.1 2014 edition does have a LTE version for Verizon but isn't worth it... But anyways the 2 inches more worth the price difference?

    For me yes: aside from my middle aged vision (lol... aging sucks) I also use the multi screen feature constantly. For example right now I'm on this site, I have an email window up, I'm messaging my husband and I'm looking at Amazon. And each window is spacious enough that I can do everything I need comfortably.
    When using only a single screen, I do not need the mobile version of a website, it's large enough for full desk top version.
    And movies look awesome.

    It really all depends on your needs. Some people feel it's just too much and the portability isn't great, personally for me it's not a problem. It's roughly the size of a legal sized envelope, yes its heavier than a smaller tablet obviously, but in my case, those are non issues, the benefits I get from it make up for the added bulk and weight.
