    Default Battery life

    Battery life in Galaxy note seems really bad. barely 24 hours with moderate- moderate low usage, whhats the point to have a device with lots of bells and whistles if you cant use them at the same time, do you have to disable most of the best performance points to improve battery life? or I just got bad device?
    any pointers are welcome

    ... and i thought 16 hours was good battery life... i never had a new age smart phone with more than a days worth of battery life (note, s2, milestone, bb 9700, bb storm, bb 9000 and the first generation iphone)

    I don't know who says it barely lives over 25 hours. I text quite a bit, might surf a little or watch a video or two. Few phone calls. Normally last me 2 days before I throw it on the charger. I usually have 20% left on the 2nd day. Usually watch a few videos before going to bed as well.

    Wow, that's awesome! Although I have to say that I have never had a smartphone that I haven't put on to charge overnight, no matter what the remaining percentage is.

    I've watched my son let his phone get down to 1% before he'd put it on the charger. Just the thought of that makes me cringe.

    My baby brother is exactly the same way; when I ask him why he never charges his phone, he just shrugs and wanders off.

    Wow thats great battery life. I got 20 hours on my first day with the note, now I average about 12. Yesterday after 13 hours I got the notification of low battery.

    I didnt even use it that much, mybe 10-20 emails, 30-40 min phone call. 4 games of draw, and 15-20 mins of browsing. wifi and gps stuff is off, i wonder if some app is killing me. oh and i had about 20-30 whatsapp messages.

    I purchased a note on tuesday the 1st. I would unplug it from the charger at about 7 am and by 11 am I was already down to about 30% battery life with very light usage. I contacted samsung and told me to just do manual sync on my emails. It helped a bit but not really.

    I went back to at&t and the rep said that was not normal, and I also talked to a customer there that had the note and he said that he was getting all day usage with heavy use of the phone. So the rep exchanged the phone for me and now I am getting about 8 and a half hours with constant usage of text and and moderate of twitter, youtube, and emails.

    I am extremely happy now with my note and plan to keep it. I don't see myself going back to apple unless they have a ground breaking product but I highly doubt it.

    You might have a defective unit like I had, so try to exchange it.

    If you really need more juice, an extended battery (with the extra weight and bulk) might be the answer. Mugen (5400 mAh) and others (5000 mAh) can be found on eBay ranging from $19 to $100+. All include extended battery backs.

    But 24+ hours is excellent for a phone like this with normal usage.

    Also guys, it's a good thing to bump charge your phone every few weeks.
