    Battery Life on brand new phone

    Hi everyone!
    I'm new here, just got my brand new note 2 last friday evening!!
    My battery barely made it for 24 hours... which is worse than the really old iphone 3gs I' m replacing...
    Could you please give me a hint as to what I'm doing wrong? I had brightness on the lowest end, didn't really use the phone much at all (i.e. no calls or videos) took 3-4 photos and sent a couple of e-mails. that's all...
    This is a screenshot of my battery life, could you please tell me if this us normal? One of the main reasons I chose the note 2 was the great reviews on battery life... Name:  30352347993505Screenshot_2013-05-05-14-28-24.png

    I don't know of a phone made that will get the battery life any iphone gets. 24 hours on a single charge aint bad at all if you were actually using the phone

    Lot of factors at play...screen time is probably the biggest one. 4g definitely takes more battery up and you have a significant bigger screen with the note than the iPhone which is going to drain your battery. Believe it or not 24 hours is actually good for what the note 2 is...its a pocket laptop that makes calls. You really can't compare it to a 3g phone with half the screen size. It also looks like you were using WiFi and 4g the whole time....turn off WiFi when you don't need it (or 4g data if you can). That will help.

    Give it a week the battery takes a few cycles to get up to its best performance

    The wifi is the culprit.....use the settings and cycle it off when not using

    This. Also you will stop playing with it as much and start using it the way you normally do. One thing to check....is gps on and not able to see a satellite? I have that issue at work. Big cement building eats my battery on gps.

    Also are you on the edge of 4g...constant switching between 3 and 4g will kill you.
