You need to know that Battery Usage Shows: Which thing has used the battery within 1 Minute of time.
Your battery is dropped from 98% to 95% in 1 hour; then out of that 3% drop, which thing has used your battery most.
Usually it's the display which consumes.
If any other thing is consuming your battery more than screen, then something is definitely wrong with your device and you need to check that definitely!
Hope that helps you!
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2014What about the battery life?Varies from 1 Day 15 hours to 2 Days 5 hours.
Sometimes give 3 Days on less usage that is with no wifi/Edge.

Choose only FORCE STOP for the apps that do not have the DISABLE option.
Note : Doing so will uninstall all the updates to that app (only). The apps which you choose force stop won't start again after restarting the phone at anytime. But if you have opened the app(s) and closed by pressing the return key those app(s) will start again and will run in the background.

Ip-man, 29 Jan 2014It comes down to requirement at the end of the day. May be the big screen is turn off for many... more1)Camera quality is almost similer.
2)...note2 is capable of note3 features and comes with grat developer support ..the quad core processer on note2 allows screen mirroring and it can also connect to almost all smart tvs to control them ..so ur point of note2 being old is invalid
3)since the 4.3 upgrade when ever i keep my note2 in front of my friends galaxy s4 i see no diffrence in screen quality where in the s4 is 1080p and my..note2 has 720p rgb matrix for the pixcal arrangement not pentile like the s4 have...i think thats why note2 can still make up against the s4 screen..
4)and correction the note2 screen does not drain lots of battery...the samoled with its deep blacks saves on battery however u have to control the brightness level...properly and i can say with pride that the note2 has superior battrey life compaired to ANY android phone out there in the market and since the 4.3 update it became more awesome
5) spen will allow to make quick notes in ur lectures it also has scrap book and better note taking software.
..u can even go to mega 6.3 comments section u will find most users advising to go with the note2...however if u wanna sacrifice all the flagship features and the 6.3 screen is what u r attracted to then u can still go for mega 6.3 afterall samsung is all abt choices..also compair xperia ultra.6.4 inch see if u can get it for low price but one deal breaker it does not have camera flash..
i reduced my screen brightness to low level.but even then in the battery details it shows screen is using 41% of the battery which is why the battery % reduces very fast.pls friends can any body suggest me on this...
Ip-man, 29 Jan 2014It comes down to requirement at the end of the day. May be the big screen is turn off for many... moreYes it totaly depends upon one's requirements however as u r tring to compare the medrange device with the flagship i wud like to inform few deal breaker points ..
.1st point most important...i wud not go for mega 6.3 cause of no samoled screen cause no deep balcks and contrast no breathtaking videos if mega wud have got samoled i may think again but no..
..2nd point...mega is very big so uncomfortable for pocketing
3rd battrey cud have been bigger..come on its 6.3 inch device... Talking abt bluetooth i have two bluetooths one is from dell bh200 and another one is from samsung i got it free with the note2 ...bluetooth or wired headsets r not always helpfull i found myself talking more without the bluetooth or wired headset so ur point is invalid i still see ppl covering there face with galaxy tab2 and trust me they look very funny .

May be the big screen is turn off for many people out there. But for me it's requirement to watch my video lectures with wider angels and to see the important pictures related to my course studies and lot more. It work as a tablet for me as well as a phone. More importantly, I cannot rely on old note 2. I think the newer is another reason I wanna go with mega.
I'm not living in a village that I don't know what blue tooth device is, lol :P And how it can help people receiving calls without keeping the giant over the ear.
I have switched on USB Debugging, but still unable to connect to either computer or LED TV. Please help.

AnonD-20890, 29 Jan 2014Better buy Note 2.
See this link http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=4854&idP... moreNote 2 over mega 6.3 :
> super AMOLED screen
My Reason: Super AMOLED display does as good as did the SC-LCD display under the light and too the viewing angles are sharper for both in Youtube reviews. AMOLED display would consume hella battery comparative to SC-LCD at 720p (which is comparatively more warmer display than the over-saturated AMOLED display). Please correct me if I'm wrong.
> Quad core (if you need) 1.6 GHz vs dual core 1.7 GHz
My Reason: There is difference of screen density in both the devices. One is getting the Quad-core cause it's running the AMOLED display which is the requirement for the screen in general. 1.7 ghz Dual core handles the 720p display very well. And correct me if I'm wrong Quad-core extract more battery juice cause all cores are always on work comparative to Dual core.
> 2 GB RAM vs 1.5 GB RAM
No Reason here, Note 2 wins here by little margin. But again, when you see the reviews on youtube you would see that browser speed of mega is better in loading and processing the pages.
> Display PPI is bit more in N7100 than I9200
My Reason: That PPI is compensated very very well by the 6.3 screen. And every review showed mega 6.3 screen is more crisp. And too without being complete HD this screen does displayed the best result in every review I have seen so far. And Again, no HD display is placed by the samsung cause they knew they are offering the 6.3 screen with 3200 MAH battery so HD screen would drink all the juice in just few hours. That's the reason they have put this 720p screen which is crisp, trust me on that. And does so well with battery thing. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
> More camera features in N7100 than I9200
My Reason: Umm, There are more camera features in mega than on note 2. All the functions of Galaxy s4 are placed in mega except the dual shot mode. The mega has the same camera software as the GS4 missing the dual shot mode only. All other modes present there. 1st, with jelly bean 4.2.2 (a better software than the original 4.1.2 of note)produce better photos. 2nd, it has all the functions of GS4 except the dual shot mode and does well in mode things too. Correct me I'm a wrong here.
> FM radio is not there in I9200
Um, Fm radio is not my requirement at all. I have got nokia candy bar phones for that thing. I cannot run FM Radio over my expensive device and burn my battery before it's real age.
> Stylus is there is N7100, but not in I9200.
Stylus is the positive point in note 2.
> Android 4.3 (4.4.2 in future) vs 4.2.2
My reason: With andriod 4.3 update already we are reading up million of complains about the note 2 battery problem. Have no idea when would the 4.4 update would come and what more bugs it would bring with itself for note 2. Not to forget the aging internals. Mega is fresh off from last year summer. And mega too would get the update to kitkat sooner or later. But for me, update things doesn't matter. I think I would be more looking into how it can give me good outcome for the buck that I spend in mega for next two years. I think note 2 is already an old thing technology.
Mega 6.3 over note 2 :
> Big display
> Stereo sound recording
> Marginally bigger battery (3100 mAh vs 3200 mAh)
> Better camera software with all the features that GS4 has except the dual shot mode.
> In long run Mega would give the best battery result even if the battery gets weaker after a year or two by the fact that it has a screen that consumes less juice than the screen which consume hella juice of the battery. So, in long run, this would give the best battery result comparative to AMOLED screen. People would compromise on screen but won't compromise over shortening battery life.
> It has IR blaster to control your tv and other devices (though not of my any use, lol)
> It's thinner than the note 2. Easy to hold by the fact that bezels are same as of GS4. In other words, it's magnified GS4. Looks pretty cool.
> It give wider viewing angels in picture taking, in reading, browsing and almost everything. It's MEGA. :P

You can choose Mega 6,3. I don't like the design, too big and wide. If you don't have enough budget and Mega 6.3 is cheaper than Note II, you can choose it.
