    Just want to say the note 3 has fantastic battery life..had it since September and im still amazed I can get through my day at work and get home and still use it until bedtime with 30 percent still left. ..wow.

    My galaxy s2 would have used 3 batteries in this time..

    Thanks samsung.

    Can you post your battery stats after a days usage? A lot of us are seeing issues with Google Play Services and Google Now draining battery.. do you use Google Now?

    Sorry....in response to your question I can confirm I don't use google now....

    Maybe this helps battery life.

    I have bought a spare 3rd party battery but as yet had no need to use it . With my galaxy s2 I had 4 spare batteries with me...although I would normally need to put 2 spares in during the day.

    My note didn't get charged last night, and I left with 18%. Made it through the day on wifi. Terrific battery.

    My battery sometimes drains quite fast as I have on almost everything that can be on. Half an hour ago I tried to optimise everything for long battery life like putting the battery saver on, disabling smart features and so on, and all this time I have been surfing the web - but not lost one single %!
    This just shows that the Note 3 battery is even capable of 50 hours of on-screen time!

    I have power save on and I usually have wifi and gps off unless I am using them. The rest I believe is stock. I get killer battery life.

    battery life is amazing and whats amazing is when you do run out of juice i love the spare battery option

    my stats from yesterday with auto brightness +5 on

    4 hours, 40 minutes screen time
    17 hours 30 minutes total.

    took it off charger at 5am and didn't need to charge it till 10pm at night

    just what you want for a phone.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again, while the battery life is great, what I like most about the Note 3's battery is how fast it takes a charge.

    I consider myself a heavy user seeing as how I stream non stop all week 9 hours straight per day plus the normal texting, surfing, and any the else. Watch is connected all day plus blutetooh stereo headphones and I never get less than 13 hours. I have 2 spare batteries that I have never used once.

    That explains it.

    On mobile data that battery will drop faster. I charge once if not twice at work sometimes... But in all fairness I'm streaming movies, so screen stays on of course, and then I have 3 others tethering to my phone all at the very least streaming music if not Netflix as well :P. It really rocks the battery.

    Yes I'm aware of this. I stream videos and my wifi/data will fluctuate and run off each other if the connection isn't stable so either way, I'm still using some mobile data. I'm almost at 5GB.

    Nice. In the past 2 days I've racked up 8 so far. Just started my cycle a little bit ago. I usually average 50-60 GB a month.
