AnonD-26497, 13 Feb 2014@ SUNDAY ARE did u update how's the performance battery backup ,is there any lags or what actu... moreAfter android 4.3 upgrading, my device got the below 3 updates :
> 1st update - 14 MB (increased idle standby time by a small amount and no visible changes)
> 2nd update - 1.2 GB (useless no changes in battery standby time and no visible changes)
> 3rd update - 1.2 GB (almost useless, meagre increase in idle standby time only and apps appear to open and close a bit fast - according to me)
No lags. If you keep only WiFi on in flight mode with all unnecessary apps disabled (in settings -> application manager -> all) without using in screen off mode, the battery charge decreases by 1% every 30 to 45 minutes. Before it used to decrease by 3% to 5% for the same time. From this, the idle standby time has increased. In my words, the meaning idle standby and normal standby are different.
The standby time (when using it normally) has not gone even worse. It remains the same that is upto 24 to 30 hours according my usage (in pure flight mode***, auto brightness and all unnecessary apps* disabled, WiFi usage** upto 4 non continuous hours, screen off time at 30 seconds).
* means - all google apps except hangouts and maps, all samsung apps like flipboard etc. Hangouts and maps are closed just by pressing return button.
** means - 4 hours includes browsing for some time and WiFi texting for some time. Using both (browsing and online texting at the same time is rare).
*** means - all radio options (except WiFi) are switched off. I will switch off WiFi too when not using it.
I should put my device to WiFi standby continuously from 100% battery charge (based on the condition marked with * symbol) and see how much hours the battery charge lasts.
Updates - means the releases within the same version
Upgrade - changes to higher version.
I am using note 2 (4.1.2) i can't update it into 4.3

[deleted post]If you can't understand simple English, I can't do anything. Battery backup means battery backup time. Understood?. I didn't mention external battery backup.

What do you actually mean when you say battery back up? If you are talking of how long your battery lasts after charging, it is called battery life. Battery back up means you have extra battery that you replace the other one with when it gets low. That's battery back up. So most times i find your comments confusing. Whether you are saying that your battery life is good but when you put the extra (back up) it gets bad or something. So pls try clarify this next time you wanna post.

AnonD-53316, 13 Feb 2014Symbian is history, accept it forget it.....There is nothing wrong in saying the truth about the current android phones.
Note that if android phones continue to give less battery backup, even android may become a history !!!.
I think a phone with 720p video recording and 5 MP auto focus rear camera (with image and video stabilization) and 2 MP front camera (with 720p video resolution) with dual core processor is more than enough for a common man. Poor Samsung I9500. It is getting critics from users that it is overheating and giving worst battery backup than N7100. S4 RIP !!!.
