If anyone has this problem and knows a fix please let me know.

I think part of the problem is that i have a lot of files on my sd card... the syncronisation is taking a long time which chews the battery.

To anyone having problems with battery drain caused by the media server on the note 2.....

Having suffered this for 3-4 days i think i have found the solution. I uninstalled Viber and re-installed it and my battery drain has virtually stopped. It has been going an hour now and has only used 1% compared with 10-15% before. :-)

Another option was to reformat your sd card and reload the files. I didn't try this as i literally have 500,000 files on my sd card with my mapping apps. I have seen posts of people who say this doesn't work.

I bought my note 2 15 days ago. Initially my battery backup was also about a day, now after heavy usage( min 3 hours of calling, around 30 txt msgs, Listen to music for couple of hours, play games for half an hour, gmail, facebook, watsapp, skyp and google hangout synced, few min of internet browsing and 24 hours mobile data on.....) I am still left with 45%-55% of battery at the end of the day. Love this monster mobile.

In relation to your battery, 7 hours continuous use for 75% drain is ok if you are doing a heap of 2G browsing. At this rate you are getting over 9 hours of continuous use...... the only phone available that may better this is a Razr.

Your other option is to buy a spare battery and charger of ebay ($20) and you can use your phone forever.

Battery life will definitely improves after 4 to 5 charging cycles(Charge the battery and discharge fully before charging again).

If you are still finding any issues try to do a factory reset.

I've bought a new sgn2 yesterday. The device memory is 10.46gb out of the box.but it is decreasing hevily.when I played temple run2, keep browsing for 3 hours in 2g network, it is decreased to 10.39gb despite using a 32gb microsd.(that means sgn2 loses its 71.28mb memory).its a very very damaging problem to me. Although I have used my sgn2 continuously for 7hours today(from 1pm to 8pm), but not heavily.battery level is now at 25%.I have charged the battery for 8 hours before using it. Is the battery backup which I get normal? Also when I take a picture using the 8mp sensor,all the images get stored in the device memory (though I've set in the camera settings for storing the snapped photos to memory card).why is such damaging incidents are happening with me?plz plz plz plz plz plz plz friends, help me to solve my problems.my device is running on Android 4.1.2jb.thanks in advance.
