Im on a custom rom phoenix rom for note 2 with the note 3 features and unless i turn my internet on i will get a minimum 2days on one charge, i watched 6movies for a whole day and i wasnt in flight mode although brightness was at half and i hit 57% when i was done so battery is actually good, the stock rom is what sucks coz i was getting just under 14hours without browsing. As for the case it is plastic and i dont mind it because ive dropped it a million times and a year and a half later i dont have scratches on the screen and i dont use screen protectors or a case, the back cover shows it though hehehe this phone is perfect coz show me another phone where you connect it to the telly via hdmi and connect a bluetooth ps3 pad and a keyboard then play games on a 45" tv with great graphics and later surf on the telly plus it also works with those 4port usb expanders, i was really shocked. It supported a mouse and a flash disk i didnt think 2 devices would be supported on this port. Now i need a note 3 coz it must be crazier.
guys, few days ago I had an accident on the rainy road ! My note2 was in my pocket and the screen surface was towards the road when I slipped ! Fortunately nothing happened to my note2 !

I just want to know what app is that going crazy that drains so much battery after the 4.3 update? Though i dont notice that much of a battery drain when i have the JB 4.3 but i think it would be best to know what app it is...
Or maybe someone can tell me what it is?
Thanks in advance...
I wonder if anyone sees a drop test of Note 2.
From the many drop test there are drop on side test as well and Note 2 had the same bump like of HTC One and I believe HTC One has metal Frame.
My nephew once through Note 2 and it survived and have a bump on it's frame.
That certainly proves its a metal frame.
If anyone has such experience please share. Thanks

Even the almighty Note 3 and S4 are all made of cheap plastic silver coated lining which samdung shamelessly put their to deceive their unsuspecting customers and trick them to think it's metal. So my dear wake up, your Note 2 lining is plastic and if you are not using any sort of protection for it be ready cos it will soon peel off. I can bet my money on that one.
ambience, 22 Feb 2014No... its not steel.. made of plastic with steel coated... mine peeledWell said. Just hit slowly with your nails. You can conclude the material by the sound.

I am sure that the backup of most of the smartphones within 10 years will become equal to ... moreFrom using Xperia mini to Galaxy Ace 2 to Lumia 520 and finally Galaxy Note II, so far I don't complaint much about battery. For me if there is user complains about battery, she can be suggested to buy power bank, if she doesn't want power bank, brings charger. What the main problem is if the phone malfunction, internet so slow (because of bad network operator).
