    Yesterday left house at 730 am with 98% charge. Went all day checking emails, texting, along with gaming and linked to galaxy gear. This morning at 9 am at 23%. Amazed how well the battery last and I am a heavy user. This also includes having Facebook check frequently and two mail apps. One that checks every minute and the other pushing.
    No way EVER get that with my iPhone 5.

    My galaxy gear is also holding battery life as well. Used all day yesterday and this am at 68%.

    The Note 3 and the Gear both have pretty great battery life I continue to be pleasantly surprised.

    I'm doing something wrong. I'm not getting that battery life at all.

    I've updated settings which helped. Not sure where I'm screwing up. I don't have push notifications for really anything.

    It's on par on power savemode with my iPhone 5. This thing guzzles battery. Thank goodness for large battery. I can't wait for my spare battery to arrive.

    My Note does not drink battery, at least I don't feel like it does:

    BlueTooth is typically on to accommodate my Galaxy Gear, as are location services (WiFi only).

    I say this thing guzzles battery because the battery lasts about the same length in spite of its 3200mah vs 2200mah(?) of iPhone.

    Well, it does have a far superior display, more RAM, and a higher end CPU. I wouldn't expect it to be the Prius of phones.

    I have 17% left after 18 hours moderately intensive use. 17% = another two hours left at least.

    Does anyone know how you would reset this back to 0? My timer is on 3 days and counting right now, but I've charged it since then.

    Do you guys use auto brightness or keep it at 50%? Just got my Note 3 yesterday, hoping to get as good of battery life as I see people get on here.

    You have to charge the phone to either full or over 90% I believe.

    This is my battery. Unplugged around 530 AM (EST) this morning and then left for work at 6:30 AM (that was the wifi time).

    Not bad at all for tethering my buddies phone most of the day so far... Streaming music and even CNN live TV. Brightness on 20%. Mobile data usage only since 6:30 AM.

    It's ok, I expected better. I was probably spoiled by the 6500 battery in my Note 2.

    Sorry no screen shot but my wife just got hers recently. We fully charged and I set up a few things for her, maybe an hour of screen time max. This morning it has battery critically low. I looked at it was as 2%, battery was on 1 day,17 hours. For those that care, it took a little over 2 hrs to recharge fully. Now most of that time it was just sitting idle, only getting email and FB notifications but I can complain.

    I think the battery life is poor I'm afraid. My Note2 was acceptable (it nearly made a whole day) but the Note3 doesn't come close.

    It seems like you are in the MINORITY, and a real SMALL MINORITY at that...

    I'm consistently getting 5-6 hours of screen time between charges. After charging it for the first time I went 52 hours before I plugged it into the charger again. Words cannot describe how happy I am with this phone!
