    You're probably right about that! The large screens do want a lot of battery power. Well, as it is now, it isn't the worst it could be and it looks a lot improved. :thumbup:

    That is true! Still holding out hope that when my new battery comes in that changes something. However, apps like Phone Info tell me my battery health is good so I may have wasted money. Lol

    Hi, I noticed your using Green Power. I use Deep sleep battery saver and believe it or not, I've gotten a little over 39 hours on one charge using my phone heavy to light usage at times. You might give it a try.

    I'm really trying to figure this thing out! I'm starting to think that I'm expecting too much and that I'm going to get similar battery life than I was before on the s3 and that the battery is just so large because the Note needs it to just be on par with smaller phones...

    I think you are right to expect better battery life. It is hard to quantify battery life, but I moved up from s3 to note2 and got double the screen time (3.5 hours to 7 hours) and there are many others who have.

    The increased screen size doesn't have as much effect since the resolution is the same (the increase in sub-pixel count doesn't compensate the increased battery).
    Also the drain is constant and not depending on screen on time.

    I hope the new battery fixes it 😃

    Have you contacted Verizon support about this?

    Well, I got it almost dead. I was able to charge it up to 77% before we headed out for the day. As of right now I'm at 46% after 6 hrs 15 mins on battery and 1 hr 47 mins of screen on time! Much better than I was getting. And my graph isn't showing all those wake ups that I was seeing before. 4.3 is also nice but I'm not a fan of the way the settings menu is all tabbed now. Too much digging to get to stuff. Lol

    You'll get used to it though. I'm glad you're finally getting nice battery life. It's so much less to worry about when you know your phone will last throughout the day! :thumbup:

    Just powered it off at 15 percent. Time on battery from 77 percent was 10 hours and 18 minutes. Screen time was 3 hours and 29 minutes! Way better than what I was getting with the Note!

    How much screen time were you getting with your s3? This is probably me best today and thats with having everything off when I am not using it. Best screen on time I have ever gotten is around 3 hours.

    Back on the Note! Apparently the person I traded to was a habitual phone switcher and his mom required he switch back. Damn kids. Lol luckily I'm a nice guy.

    Wow, I'll say. You've been playing musical chairs with phones. If your battery doesn't work out maybe think about trying a Zerolemon battery, a lot of posters think they're pretty good.

    I don't know what happened between trading it away on Saturday and getting it back on Sunday but this is yesterday after charging up to 95%...

    I was on Wi-Fi all day and I am using power saving mode...

    Oh .. Hm. One thing you could also try is turn down the brightness of the screen. That could save some battery. What you have there isn't terrible but it's not as good as you should be getting, still.

    I'm actually ok with this. If I can duplicate that at work today with switching LTE off using Phone info then I'll be a happy camper. The reason I'm switching lte off is because I think my excessive drain may be due to this Note always seeking lte that it's not going to find! Typically, all I ask for from a device is to get me through my work day without fear of my battery dying! I can charge on my commute!

    Good! I hope it will work. I know how nerve wracking it is to be out and the phone is draining battery. That makes me so nervous.

    I noticed during my 24 hours with the S4 that after side-loading 'Phone Info' the app wouldn't open on 4.3. I sure hope that I don't run into that when this Note 2 gets 4.3. The ability to toggle LTE off is something that should come standard on these devices anyway.

    Yes, I agree with that. I wish I could access a bunch of toggles from the notification shade. Probably can with a third party app. :rolleyes:

    I'd be fine if it was anywhere in the settings as an option since it would only have to be done twice during the day and the time between toggles would be 8-10 hours!

    That's strange... I'm not familiar with the Note 2 though (or any Samsung phones) since I've not had one.
