    Hey folks. Funny how problems often bring the first post.

    I have a challenge. It seems like my "screen usage" is attributing to my battery drain a great deal even though my brightness is at 50% and I have all the power save features enabled. I'm going on hour 11 here and I'm cutting below 40%. When I check the usage, it seems to directly correlate with awake time. I have disabled my motion controls as a result.

    I'm super happy with my phone! I know I've been handling it a lot..I'm not confident I've spent 40+% of it's on-time handling/using the phone (4 hours in the last 10 :| )

    I'm syncing a bit too, but I didn't feel syncing equated to screen-on time.

    Here's the shots. Any thoughts?

    I've done some reading and most people agree ~5 hours screen-on time is what you can expect from a Note 2. This is agreeable. I think I'll try...(operative word here is try <3) to put my phone down after a full charge all day tomorrow...and see if I still get drainage for screen activity. If I have actually been actively using this thing for nearly 50% of my day, then my gawsh I need to settle down!

    yeah your getting average use! With those numbers. But if you can't seem to find yourself to put it down:thumbup:. I recommend a extended battery!

    Here's a link to one.. :thumbup: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00A6U...cUvbUpU2656796

    Haha thanks for the tips folks. Yeah I'm pretty sure I've just totally lost track of time while using my new favourite toy! Kind of a useless reason to start a thread until you started making useful suggestions for new phone fiends like me. I really should settle down eventually. If I don't, I know where to shop ^_^

    There is a drastic change in battery life on my end between using my screen all day at 100% brightness vs the lowest setting. I'm not talking just a couple of hours, either. I'm not rooted on this replacement yet and there was one day this week where I was outside and had to have the screen brighter. I was using it like how I normally would. BIG mistake. My phone was almost dead before the day ended, which I have yet to see

    I get on average about 7-8 hours of screen on time. Prior to 4.1.2 it was getting 10-12 hours. Most of the time its only for low rez games and internet browsing. So if you are playing something thats ramps up cpu/gpu speeds you can expect less
