    Default Insane Battery Life Note3

    I'm a heavy user of my Note3 and today I got 8 hours screen on time and I'm still on 22% I'm no light user I'm constantly pushing my phone I left my home with 96% this morning the time was roughly 8.25am I've been playing NSS all day (soccer battery consuming game) been generally whizzing around the phone and my shock I can't crack it I'll admit it the last two hours I've been in low brightness power saving mode however it's still amazing - I think it may be something to do with a CPU and RAM app I downloaded which shuts app when you lock the phone and shuts any apps taking up lots of ram it also gets rid of junk files eg cache which I had tons of. The app is Clean Master it rules I also downloaded Battery Doctor which helps - I'm undecided between Battery Widget Reborn or Battery Doctor! But anyway I'm loving my Note3 experience of course I won't always be able to have the brightness down especially in bright areas as that screen goes ridiculously dim. I believe it's 2 knits which is frightening.

    Nope, shutting down apps and cleaning RAM doesn't give you better battery on this phone. Android likes its RAM full...and likes having apps open, so it takes less power to get back to running apps. I have Clean Master...and it's basically nothing more than "clear RAM" in the native active apps widget.

    I get max of 4 and a half hours screen time in a full day. However, I usually get around 3 and a half, because I sometimes play half an hour to an hour on HOC (Online 3d game) still want a ton more battery life, how do you do it!!!

    He has a Neo - screen, among other things, should use significantly less battery than ours. And it has a 3100mAh battery despite that.

    8 hours! Wow!!! I used to get 6 hours when I was on JB, lucky if I get 5 now that I am on KK. I wish I could get 8 hours.

    He's lying. See his other thread about battery life.

    Darn..... That's kind of a downer... I was hoping that he had some super cool $100 app that I could have downloaded to get 8 hours screen time.

    12 hours of screen-on time in two charge cycles, and a full 2 1/2 hour charge, all in in 11 hours? Really? How's that physically possible?

    Unless you're trying to troubleshoot a specific wakelock or similar issue, I'd get rid of the battery saving and RAM clearing and task killing apps. As indicated earlier, those are going to be more detrimental than beneficial to both performance and battery life.

    I just want the trolls to stop marketing fake battery optimizers in device subforums. There's areas for that stuff, use them.

    Well, that's definitely low brightness at work there. And the Android System power usage is *miles* too high.

    Nah its on auto. It's only looks really low due to it always being lower when under 5%

    Android system is always higher since updating to kitkat. It tends to be at times over 28% some days.

    One time I had 3h 30 min screen on with auto brightness, and my android system was using 39% battery while screen was using 22%. KitKat has some battery drain issues :E

    I think @Golfdriver97 was asking the OP for battery screenshots with the usage graph.

    Wow, that's a terrible regression. My Android System is 4% not 25-40%. I am 64% battery after 24hrs off the mains on my Flex. When it first came out the Note 3 had good battery and one of the best screen-on times too, this KK....wait. Did you factory reset after Kit Kat? Or not? I keep hearing it makes a big difference on some phones.

    I never did that as I havnt needed to really. Even though Android system is a lot higher on kitkat battery life is still great so hasn't been an issue to me. Not sure why it's higher on kitkat but as I said I get on average 5 hours screen time and well over a day+ total

    It might just be a change in the categorization of certain tasks and/or a different methodology of executing similar functionality that is handled by the OS instead of a separate app, etc.

    I don't fully get all this battery talk about the note3, I'm very happy with my battery time and am on kk or 4.4.2, I tend to charge my note3, either once a day or once every 2, sometimes even 3 days depending on what I do with it, today, this morning rather, I think I woke with 88% on batterry, last charge was sometime yesterday eve, but either way I thought it did ok streaming 5 to 6 hours of youtube constant before the 15% window poped up...love the phone and it's ridiculously long battery life...
