The move from Note 1's 4 to 5-hour heavy usage to the Note II's 8 to 10 hours of actual screen-on time on heavy usage is a big leap! This darn thing can run up up to 20 hours of my usual 7 hours screen-on with wifi and bluetooth on! I guess the root that allowed the One Power Guard to work to switch to lower frequencies than the 1.6ghz of the processor helps. At full capacity (or gaming mode) it can give me only at least 12 hours; at power save of 1.2ghz, it can extend to 16 to 20 hours of moderate to heavy usage. No lag experience except when you open heavy performing apps like games, S Note - this is when I crank it up to 1.6ghz.

I keep my Note II virtually wireless as I change to a fresh battery once it hits just below 20% (that's like usually on the 16th hour of usage). I don't need to charge my battery with the unit itself since I have the official charger. It's a safety measure too and I cycle 2 other official Samsung batteries for the Note II. This eliminates any worries of carrying a charger to plug it in those odd times when you need power. You just change to fresh ones.

So I just don't get it for smartphones with non-replaceable battery. Especially even with the new ones with 1080p screens that suck up power more. They would argue that a portable power bank or bringing a charger everyday to plug somewhere would solves this problem. And carrying an extra battery and totally replace the spent one in less than a minute is such a hassle than waiting at least 2 hours somewhere? - that is if you're even fine with leaving it in the open and there is a likelihood of theft or leaving it behind. Or not use it often - uh, ok.

For some of us, the Note II serves as a heavy duty device that has the most versatility - what other pocketable device that has the apps and functions of an S Pen? Thank goodness this runs through the day (and more) with a charge.

Dear friends,
I bought a note 2 on February 19,2013 and there was a problem regarding Wifi connection. On 21st feb13 I loged a complant with the (telephone) technical support. After a week or so with this persisting problem I visited one of the service centers at Kolkata (India) and they told me that the motherboard needs to be changed which will be done at free of cost.But they are not issuing a DOA status. Since the handset was a brand new it must be replaced ?? can any one suggest me how to get a DOA status....for my handset..or if they replaces the motherboard then future problems will not arise...I think I have made a blunder to trust samsung in high end gadgets.. no quality control at all....
