    Default Battery charges slow and discharges fast

    I'm noticing that in addition to slow 4G service, I'm getting really bad battery life. My standard battery discharges completely in about two hours and can take up to 8 hours to recharge. Has anyone else noticed this or had a similar issue? If so, hire did you rectify it?

    I don't think this will help, but you can give it a try: Reboot into recovery and clear cache. Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.
    Follow instructions for the S3.

    I tried that and it didn't really change anything with regard to the battery usage. Your link just took me to a forum thread about the S3. Any other suggestions?

    How long have you had your Note 2? May be a dying battery?
    Do you know anyone with a Note 2 that you can swap batteries with and test this theory?

    I was having major battery life issues on mine after 15 months of use. Bought an anker stock replacement battery on Amazon for $15 and it's like new again. I'd just spend $15 for a new battery.

    Yeah, your battery needs to be replaced. They are only good for 500 cycles and then they start to go bad. I had this problem until I replaced the battery and now it's like a new phone again.

    try a new cable. those are cheap. and try a new battery. batteries don't last forever. i'm ALWAYS replacing battery half way through my ownership timeframe.
