for batteries (any lipo battery)
charging short burst is ok, just never ever let it go down to 0% or charge it to maximum 100% and let it stay there for a long time. best is charge ur phone when it is 10% or more to 95%. never have battery problem with my phones

mowafybarge, 11 Jan 2018I'm comparing between Note-8 and Mate10 pro. Could you advise which one is better in Battery ... moreif u are into camera and battery life, mate 10 pro battery life is simply amazing, i can go whole day (while working and play games during the day) without charging and charge when i am back home. but i do hear lots of complaint on the note 8 battery life. for camera, i give it a 10/10, its perfect, super fast background blurring for portrait shot. great sharpness and tons of camera feature. vs note 8, i cant give u the answer since my note 8 arriving in few days
mowafybarge, 11 Jan 2018I didn't get a proper reply, which phone is better??? Note-8 or Mater-10 pro i would say go for the note 8, used mate 10 pro before ( i am not using iphone X and my note 8 is coming in a few days). my mate 10 pro is having that "lagging" issue for certain game, where the iphone X none, so does my Z5 premium from 2 years ago. but the problem may lie on the newer GPU or processor which mate 10 pro or huawei failed to awaken its full potential. hopefully note 8 not having that issue. BTW, its best not go for a "octa-core" processor phone, never liked them.. since i experience lags only with octa cored phones. yeah, i know note 8 is using octa processor.. but hopefully it wont lag
using a iphone X currently, and my note 8 is coming in a few days. lets see how they compare XD
I wonder if front glass is gorilla 5 since it easily get scratches and broke on a 20 inch fall.
Vincent Manalad, 15 Jan 2018Crowd Sourcing: Battery Life Concern - What is the best battery charging habit for Note 8?... moreAfter charging too 100% mine is also dropping to 99% or less within minutes. I am not concerned about it since my Nokia Lumia 930 had the same and I used it as primary phone for more than 3 years. I think it is pretty normal.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2018IR and radio for low end and mid end phones no more high cause don't need these gimmicks anymore.It's not a gimmick when you lose your TV remote or your staying in a crappy hotel with a broken remote.
I miss it. Didn't use it all the time but definitely useful.
Also, FM radio, I like to listen to my local football team play on the radio. If I use internet radio, it's fine until the game starts, then I get a looped message saying the content isnt available in this format.
The snapdragon version apparently has FM radio (just need download a app) but my Exynos version hasn't

But overall the camera it's excellent compared to android phone around and better in some scenes than pixel 2 camera.
PS. I'm a user of note 8 and iPhone x BTW

Battery Life Concern
- What is the best battery charging habit for Note 8?... moreLast upper 3 percentage will be an unreliable indicator fur a full battery after a few charges.
Using the AcuBattery Pro app, I personally consume 15% per hour while using with screen on, connected to my Bluetooth, playing music, and on LTE. That's a total of since 6 hours SOT.
For the last 3 months of use, I've kept my charge mostly above 80% by trickle charging with a battery case/magnetically attached power packs. By doing this, I'm slowing down the degradation of my internal battery life.
Also, AcuBattery Pro indicates of the internal battery of 3300 mAh is beginning to decline, like the battery reports in Windows. Mine indicates I'm 22mAh more than the 3300mAh battery design capacity:
plz help bangladeshi friendz.i brought N9500 model but there is no bangali language in keyboard language,so wht can i add bangali,i dont wana 3rd party software.
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2018The best till nowAre you joking? The battery is sucks, the camera has only 12 megapixeles, the sampling time of the barometric sensor is lazy, it hasn't IR, nor stereo, and the finger print sensor is situated in wrong place.
It is far to be as good for a huge price!
I own this phablet despite I promised myself, I will not buy for myself a Samsung until some issue will be resolved, but my wife surprised me in. I don't like this phablet... But don't tell it to my wife!
Is a fancy phone with a lot of feature, it is true but it is far to be what I expected from the Samsung flagship.
The barometric sensors sampling is still lazy. The camera is pretty good, but the lack of megapixeles is still an important issue. The position of the finger print sensor is absolutely wrong and still I put my finger on the camera lenses.
It is a good gadget but far to be so valuable for its price witch is too much for what you get.
Battery Life Concern
- What is the best battery charging habit for Note 8?
- I notice that from 100% fully charge, after using the phone for 5 minutes (internet connection, thru wifi or cellular data) it drops to 98% right away. Is it normal?
- I am using the ordinary settings, means no POWER saver option selected.
