    Default Note 3 uses way too much charge

    Ive recently got my note 3 and im thinking of giving it back. It uses 40% overnight when im not even using it. It uses around 10% every hour generally. During the day I don't use it for 8 hours and it uses 30% !!!!! I've taken screenshots but don't know how to attach them...

    Thanks

    You're lucky. I take mine off of the charger around 7 am and it's dead around noon with light use.

    yea, i mean i use mine lightly when at work but i also keep an extra charger at work so I'm generally charged all day... may be something to look into if ur line of work allows for it : )

    There is probably something to cause your battery loss. How many email accounts do you have synching to your phone and at what intervals? Live wallpaper, widgets, and other apps can cause unnecessary battery drain. There are lots of threads on AC which could help you resolve this. For me even with heavy use I can get from 8 am to 6pm with about 25% battery left after moderate to heavy usage. Then once I am home I pop in my 2nd battery and I'm good to go until bedtime.

    I took my Verizon Note3 off the charger at approx 8AM. I have 2 email accounts, texting, BBM, 3 widgets, and Nova Prime Launcher, I would say for a Sunday with medium use at 11PM and 54% battery left.....I am NOT disappointed. I have JellyBean OS installed on my device.

    There's something wrong with your hardware or software. When my N3 is idle, battery drain is at most 2% per hour. And that's with LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS turned on, and power-saving mode turned off.

    With moderate use, the battery easily lasts all day and recharges overnight.

    I suspect a battery issue with mine. Took it off of its charging cord at 7:00 this am. At 8:20, it's already down to 74 percent. Wi Fi, bluetooth and GPS are all off and I've barely touched the thing.

    Does anyone use the battery saving mode?
    If not , why not??
    I use to use it but quit using it some time ago based on something I read..
    The sad part is I can't remember why I quit using it..
    Does it really slow down battery drain??
    Thanks...............

    I don't know the details, but power-save mode presumably makes things slower and dimmer. I don't use it because my battery endurance is fine, so I don't need to sacrifice performance. (The only thing I do that would run the battery down is to use GPS navigation while driving for hours. And when I do that, I plug in the car charger.)

    I went from great battery life, 2-3 days, to not so great, 1 day, to better, day and a half. I deleted "stuff" that looked interesting and I hadn't used. Somewhere in there the upper left led started flashing when the phone was idle (what does that designate?) now it is not flashing again. My $ 00.02 worth.

    When I read a post and it's worth my wild to offer suggestions, I don't mind, but when I read a post such as this one and I notice the numbers don't add up, I just let the OP know that my device isn't acting that way. 40% overnight, 30% during the day (8 hours without use) and 10% every hour....makes me go hummmm.....USER error. I apologize for venting. The Note3 is an AWESOME device with excellent battery life...IMHO
