    will VZW Note 2 have better, same, or worse battery time compare to my current VZW Galaxy S3?

    I have already ordered a Note 2 from VZW, but I did not think about the battery issue until today.
    My current VZW Galaxy S3 has amazing battery life, based on how I've used it in the last few
    months.

    If your amazed by the battery life w/ your S3 then you'll be speechless once you get your Note 2. I went from a S3 to Note 2 & I can finally say I have a phone where I don't have to worry about battery life.

    cool... that means I'm trading in my Galaxy S3... got a trade-in quote of $307 + $50 bonus from Gazelle right now.... so no need to keep the old S3 around!

    Way better than S3, I have both and it is without question a considerable improvement.

    Another vote here for the Note 2 battery being a tank. Have not had one instance where I was worried about battery life and not making it through the day. On normal daily usage for me, I can get anywhere between 1.5-2 full days out of it. Obviously that changes per usage but its pretty good to know I can at minimum last a full day without having to ensure ill need a plug before I get to bed.

    I agree with all of the other replies...

    My Note 2 easily outlasts my wife's S3 & I am a heavier user than her.

    Enjoy your N2!

    I get at minimum a full day out of it. I would consider myself a moderate user, some days heavier than others, but for the most part moderate usage. I am so use to my Thunderbolt that I take my charger with me to work EVERY day and it never leaves my coat pocket, dont plug it in until I go to bed at night.

    Leaving LTE enabled at all times. I don't have to use the phone info app to disable 4g like I did with my crappy razr battery to make it a full day. This thing plows along

    my Note 2 arrived this morning.... first thing I did was plug in the charger. It was already at 76% out of the box, so didn't take too long to reach 100%.

    I've played it for the last two hours, but the battery has already dropped to 47%. Can this be right? All I did was browse the internet, play with the S Pen. No video or audio playback at all. Scree brightness was on auto.

    Will it improve after a few more charging cycles?

    You need to post screen shots. Separates the true from the false and helps us to help you. Just the basic three, battery, screen on time and application use palm swipe to capture.

    how do I do screenshots on the Note 2?

    the strange thing is the the #1 item on the battery usage list is something called "Media Server"
    but I haven't even played audio or video on the phone yet. It is showing 42%.(!)
    Is this normal?

    should I charge the battery to 100% with the phone completely off,
    in order to get a more accurate battery usage reading?

    Thanks!

    This is tricky if you have huge hands like me. I basically have to swipe my pinky across for it to work
