I've got the Note 8 since it came out since April 2013. Somehow, the battery monitoring system will misalign and it will give wrong guage values that affect the battery usage time.
Opening and disconnecting the battery reformats the battery monitoring system. It would then give you back the usual 6 to 7 hours of screen time usage instead of the just 2 hours and rapid battery drain.
For more info, you can go to the last few pages about our discussions about this battery system problems at XDA Developers:
LPI, 10 Jan 2014There is no gyro on this device, checked with android sensor boxWow, then why can I play Into the Dead by tilting left or right to control the direction where I'm going?
It even says out has gyro on the specs. Do you actually have a Note 8? Have you actually tried one? Or are you just relying on that app to detect?
I've had this since April of 2013 when it first came out.

I bought a galaxy note 8 a week ago and I am satisfied, besides one strange thing that happened two days ago. When I turn it to the landscape while working the screen turns black like in the stand by mode. I have to turn it on with the on/off button and it starts working normally. This does not happen in certain intervals, I mean it might occur now and then after 2 min or after 10 min. it doesn't happen in the portrait mode. Could anybody help me?
