    Hey Ahmed,

    I note from your screenshots you have 3 different things monitoring your battery level. (the built in Samsung battery % and 2 other) those can drain your battery!

    Overall, here is what I have done and am very happy with battery life:

    Juice Defender Ultimate to turn off wi-fi when screen is off, turn off connectivity at night and better manage other things. There are other apps out there that do as well I think, but I had already paid for JDU for my old EVO and I understand its controls.

    Turn off Google Now Cards. I actually like this feature when I am traveling to see what is nearby and quick link to directions and such, but I don't need it for location, weather or sports on daily basis so shut it off. Those that say Maps are always on, this is a likely culprit.

    Also on Maps, turned off the background location finding. Maps can be a big drain and it wants to be on all the time. Any time you use maps for any reason, pretty much have to force close it to get it to stop draining battery.

    Turned off the auto update and the personal ad features from google play. (I don't like auto update of apps anyway since I don't always want the most recent update, too often they release these without thorough bug checking)

    Disabled the following apps I don't use which were using CPU and battery

    -Media Hub (had to uninstall updates before could disable)
    -Music Hub
    -S Suggest
    -Samsung Apps
    -Samsung Push Service
    -Talk
    -Weather Widget (this is the accuweather widget that is used by google now and on the lock screen if you want weather there. Even if you are not using the widget on anything, it is still using CPU and draining battery a bit. I have a weather widget from 1W on my home screen that i like so don't need this. but if you like the weather on the lock screen or live wallpaper probably need to keep it)
    -Weather Widget Main (see above)
    -AllShare Play
    com.android.smspush

    Hey just got my new Galaxy Note 2. Very happy with it. I watch numerous reviews and videos about it prior to purchasing, and I gotta say it def lives up to the hype. With that said I have to say my only concern at this point is the battery life. It seems like everything I heard about the battery just isn't the case with mine. I took all the advice from above and manipulated all the settings as best I could but I still fell like im constantly watching the "countdown" as my percentage drops. I would like to get some true, accurate specs of what I should be expecting with moderate to heavy use over a 4G LTE network as well as Wi Fi use. I heard Samsung say the battery was rated for 16hrs of video play and for me that doesn't even sound like a considerable option. I don't kno if I just built up the expectations too much or what but something def feels off about my battery performance.
    Im at 70% with 6hr 45min off the charger 60% screen brightness and 1hr 30min on screen time.. is this normal?? is it draining?? Is it truly rated for 16 hrs video time????

    I honestly never set any options like power saver mode on my phone. I bought it turned bluetooth on, wifi on, gps on and constantly looking at web, auto sync on,emails, text messages, phone calls brightness set to bout 80% and stream Pandora. Also use both wifi and 3g no lte in my area and im pretty happy that I'm getting about 14 to 15 hrs on my note 2. Hope this info helps.

    If I use battery monitor widget and it says the health of my battery is good then I can assume buying another battery probably would not help?

    15% drain after 1 hour 2 min of use after full charge and calibration.

    Do you have an sd card inserted? If so it could be that. Look in battery settings and see what's using it up. If it's media at the top it's the sd card mounting and un mointing

    Hey guys.
    I got my note 2 few days ago.
    First two days were great. Battery very good. and now I can go thru 50% in 4-5 hrs just by txting:/
    Even with power saving on still something isnt right. I dont want to do full restore but I think Its gonna happen soon.
    I do have SD card. Any idea what to do to improve it?

    Here is screenshot of my battery today.
    Only thin I did was to send few txts, Upload few photos on facebook and whatsapp and took some photos (5-6) with camera) with screen brightness on auto.
    I did had day or two ago OTA security update or something. Maybye thats the reason for that battery drain?

    I get almost av whole day out of my phone. Not sure if it's because of lte or because I have a bunk battery. I though it was pretty good until I saw all the people on here getting 2+ days or of their batteries.

    Hi guys, the suggested ways of saving battery can only increase the battery backup by an hour or two.
    But how do we bring back the humongous backup that we used to get earlier?
    According to what i observed, the backup reduced since I upgraded from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2.
    During the first month after purchasing the phone on 4th november, the battery used to last for atleast 2 days with moderate use and atleast a day anf half with heavy use, such was the power of 3100mAH!!

    So as experienced by me, it is an issue with 4.1.2 version update. I kept updating with new updates as they were realeased expecting samsung to have fixed this issue. But this only made it worse.

    Now I plan to get my fone formatted and rollback to the default android that came with the phone. Is it possible to that with yhe service centre guys? Please suggest.

    Thanks,
    Shashi.

    I have been able to resolve some of the sleep/idle drain issues, but not all:

    1. Turn off Google Maps automatic location reporting (this has been the highest impact for me)
    2. Turn off Google Now cards and notifications (your Google Now search feature will still work)
    3. The Samsung Touchwiz has some serious wakelock issues with the stock Calendar app. It appears, after a calendar notification, the phone continues to be wake up after the alarm. Many calendar entries also causes significant wakelock distrubances. My calendar services woke up my phone 48 times in less than 1 hour after a notification! (there's a fix out on XDA for this)


    good luck, but those are the top 3 items from a stock Note 2.

    After trying allsorts to increase battery life and screen on time (my screen on time averaged between 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 hours) I have reverted to 4.1.1 and the difference is day and night.

    My eMMC is 0xf7, meaning the SDS (Sudden Death Syndrome) is not a factor for me. If the eMMC revision is different, I would not recommend downgrading.

    I used:
    - Odin v3.07 - [LATEST] Odin 3.07, Odin 1.85, Odin 1.83 | All versions! | Samsung ROM Flashing Tools - xda-developers
    - Original FW from here: Download GalaxyNote2/GT-N7100 at StockROMs.net
    - You should already have the Samsung drivers through Kies

    1. Turn off your phone, hold volume down, power and home until it boots into download mode;
    2. Connect to PC;
    3. Start Odin;
    4. Click on PDA and select the firmware (make sure you unzip the FW download first)
    5. Hit start
    6. It seems you need to do a factory data wipe from recovery after installing since I got stuck on boot (blinking Samsung logo).

    Good luck!

    It's because they're not using it as much. If you look at their screen-on times, it's usually an hour or less. (Just like my friend's note 2, for example, he got 19 hours (forgot how much battery life yet), but only have 1 hour of screen time)

    While mine is down below. My best yet.
