    I'm at 11 hrs and 48% now. I shut phone off when I go to bed and I shut it off for 2 hrs while I was at the movies yesterday. It hasn't been on charger since I took it off yesterday morning

    Im with you. At max I get 6 hours till battery dead. With very little use say 1-2 screen on time I can usually get 2 days between charges.

    My ipad 2 gets 10 hours till dead.

    Go to Settings > Accounts (Google) >
    ... Then select your Google account to edit.
    Uncheck Sync settings you do not need.
    Google seems to want to sync everything.
    Also, go to the settings of your apps to see if they are trying to sync unnecessarily. I download a Twitter app once, and found out it was syncing every minute.

    Did you happen to find the guy on YouTube that does the "Galaxy note 2 tips and tricks of the day" videos? I think some of his videos would answer alot of the questions you've been asking.

    I use the GSam Battery Monitor application. Within the app it has an icon that looks like a vacuum cleaner. Clicking on it will reveal what apps are sucking up your battery. It also reveals other useful information. Such as, how long an app is running in the background, number of wake locks, etc.

    I'm calling bs. Post a screenshot where he said he gets 8.5 hours screen on time and only uses a quarter of the battery.
    Clearly I misread the original post, but since I quoted it it's easy to track this down and see where things went wrong. No smartass screenshots needed ;-)

    I'm pretty sure you read the post wrong. He said after having the phone on for 8 hours, with the screen on for about 1 or 2 hours, his battery is at about 75%. Not 8.5 screen on hours.
    Thanks for replying rationally. It's appreciated

    No where in my post does it say anything about me getting 8 hours of screen on time. Please read thoroughly before screaming bs.

    Pretty sure there was no screaming involved. I apologize for misreading your post. The reason I said post a screenshot is because these battery threads get out of hand quickly with people making wild claims of very good or very bad battery life and then they do nothing to support it (this happened in the evo lte camp). People like to describe their usage as heavy or light but it's all subjective and gets very misleading.

    I get 24-30 hrs of battery life with heavy usage. Games / etc. Battery life is exceptionally great!

    Galaxy Note 2.......
    Can you be a little more specific with your usage? Light usage for me is 24 - 30 hours, and heavy usage is more like 12 or less.

    People should always include screen on time in battery discusions. Heavy, light, etc is very subjective.

    Personally with the LTE Note 2 (using 2g/3g), I find that I generally get 22 hours with around 6-8 hours of screen on time.

    My worry is that if I don't use the phone much, i'd still get around a day (maybe slightly more) with around 3 hours of screen time. I find my phone drains on idle more than it should. I have tried many battery tips and have identified and eliminated every noticable wakelock, as well as disabling most syncing and removing un-needed apps. Turned off google now and locations, and removed svoice, etc. Literally have done everything worth doing, or so it seems.

    My guess would be poor reception is the cause of my draining, combines with the LTE variety using more slightly more battery even if you don't have a 4G sim card.

    Doesn't matter. But I was aware of what you meant in your original post about screen on time.

    Let's see some screen shots of these supposedly 20 to 30 hrs of heavy usage.

    if you're not going to be doing allot on the phone and are down to about 40% you can always put Power Saving on as well. It will give you at least 20%-30% more battery life then you would have with it off.

    So going back to the original poster, has your battery life got any better over the last couple of days or are you still having problems?

    It has gotten a bit better. But I am considering returning the phone because it just doesn't seem like the right fit for me right now.
