    Default Note 3: S View cover drained battery??

    I would expect it to drain the battery some but has anyone noticed a significant drain in battery life with the s view cover? My phone would be at 75% at 5pm and now with the sview cover I'll be at like 30% by 5pm. Nothing else had changed with my phone or usage except the cover!

    Oohhh... My God, there might be some sort of software running inside the s view cover go to the nearest support centre and seek for help !! well, have you gone mad s view cover it has no connection with your battery this is happening because of some application, that is continously running in the back ground and consuming all of your power better to install some battery saver application and from there you can track which application is consuming most of the power etc... you can also optimize your phone from there and reduce the consumption of the body!!

    While I appreciate your sarcasm, the s view case WITH wake feature has to run off of some kind of software within the phone hence the chip in the case to use wake and hence the case having an entirely different screen when closed. As well as Kitkat update not supporting a third party s view case. The only way that is possible Is for the case to run off of a software within the phone. I'm not talking about a plain old Bayou s view case. I'm talking about the one with wake feature.

    Even though it isn't touching the battery.. The screen still senses when it's there to lock and unlock so that uses something. Also battery saver applications usually use more battery...

    I don't use one OP but that is definitely a big drain.. I haven't seen any other people report this yet.

    That was my thought exactly. Just as a trial, today I put my spigen slim Armor back on and It is now almost 4pm and I'm at 89% battery life with no other changes made to the phone.

    Actually I switched from the S-View cover to an Otterbox Commuter and I noticed a huge increase in battery life. I only charge every 2 or 3 days, now, as opposed to everyday with the S-View cover.

    Ever since I ditched my S view case, I have had a huge increase in my battery life. My thought is is that it does drain the battery based on my experience with it.

    Could your S view cover have inadvertently opened on you? Another person posted elsewhere that the cover had opened while the phone was in her purse, and it quickly drained the battery.

    After what happened with my phone and cover I don't discount covers causing issues of one kind or another. I started having issues with random reboots. I took my cover off as a test that was like 2 weeks ago I have not had one random reboot since. It makes perfect sense to me is that a cover that has a wake feature would contribute to battery drain.
