    I see people claiming they get at least a day out of their fully charged Note 2, but I'm not really getting anywhere near that. At the most, I'll get maybe 15 hours with moderate usage.

    The only reason I've got 16+ right now is because I put it on the charger for a bit. Any tips?

    I would call that more than 'moderate' usage - it looks like you are getting close to 6 hours of screen time, that is not bad at all. But to be sure, get GSam battery monitor and see exactly what is using your battery.

    You may be having some wakelock . Can you post your battery history details? That's the chart you get when you click the grey chart.

    On mine, I get 7+ hours of screen time and more than a day of phone on time. A bad signal ruins battery life quickly. Wifi also appears to use significantly more battery than LTE (3%/hour on idle vs. 0.5%/hour on idle).

    I think the main culprit could be your mobile signal... it's kinda crappy :P

    That being said, it looks like most of the time your phone is awake when your screen is on, which is normal... (Except that chunk about 3/4 of the graph, near the end... that is odd, what were you doing then?)

    Also, which version of Android are you running? When I first got my Note I'd get a full day out of it and not even reach 20%. Cue in an update to 4.1.2 + Exynos patch and my battery performance dropped substantially... It's still usable, but now I'll be lucky if I still have 5% left on my phone by the time I go to bed (being used to seeing 20+ left by the same time before, it IS noticeable). Most users are reporting the same drastic drop after the 4.1.2 update, so that might be why you're not getting the awesome battery this phone once boasted...

    nothing to do about the network signal, is there? Sucks. And yeah, I'm running 4.2
