    Just curious how much battery your note 3 drains overnight. Mine uses about 3% overnight. What about you?

    1-2% if that. I do have social media signed in, but always have refresh set to manual. That way it uses less data & battery.

    I see about 2%-3% when I sleep less than 6 hours. Today I slept later because of a head cold, so I noticed about 12% drain (granted someone was blowing up my phone and I slept about 9 hours).

    I usually charge BUT....

    When I don't.. It drains 1-2 % in 6-7 hours. That's probably due to it sitting on wifi while I sleep and using WiFi calling to stay connected to T-Mobile (the cell radio gets shut off).

    I don't because that would keep the battery at high voltage unnecessarily, which reduces the battery's life span.

    3-4% probably, I try to only charge when I absolutely have to.

    Not necessarily. Batteries now a days are smart and stop taking charge once full.. It doesn't keep the voltage to it like older batteries... For this very reason .

    I charge it to a 100% before I go to bed and then unplug it. It only drops 2 - 3% over night for me.

    Yeah, it doesn't really hurt, I just don't like to charge the phone overnight. Plus I use my phone as an alarm clock, if plugged, I might tug it with the cord, happened on an older phone.

    You misunderstood, I was not saying it will be overcharge, I meant it will keep battery at the voltage of 4.1-4.2.

    Every 0.1 v drop in battery voltage prolongs its life span by significant amount. Sitting at 4.2 overnight is not good.

    Probably not normal but depends on what apps you have running.

    You seem to have a lot of things in the top left of your notification bar... This tells me things are syncing and pulling data more than the average persons phone. That could easily be your drain.

    @chloeshotmom Have you figured out why your Note 3 uses 20%. I'm just asking because I have mine for 4 days now and I notice a significant drain of about 20 % every morning. I called the service this morning and the woman told me it is normal because of the syncing, wifi, mobile data ... over night.

    I just want to make sure my battery is not broken or something else. At the moment I have not figured out all the settings and how to turn off all the things I do not need.

    The majority says the Note 3 needs 3%-8% over night. Does this mean 3%-8% in Airplane mode or does it mean 3%-8% with all data connections on? Do not get me wrong, I just want to figure out where the problem lies and therefore start with the obvious.
