Enough already............this is my final post regarding Battery backup of Note 2. buckle up it is going to be long.
first i am going to compare this mobile (NOTE 2/ or any other mobile from Sony/LG/HTC/Samsung) with a CAR (any car).
Mobile - Note 2
Car - Any Car
RAM - 1.75 GB
Speed (Car) - lets just say it can go up to 180/200 kmph
Battery Capacity - Li-Ion 3100 mAh
Fuel Tank Capacity - 50 ltrs
Now to get the most out of your fuel tank it is advisable to drive at the speed of 40-60 (even though it can go up to 180 kmph) in 4th gear. this is how these companies get their mileage ( to advertised ) worked out.
60 kmph is 65% less than max speed of 180 kmph. you can drive at the top speed but you will not get better mileage.
same way you can use all of 1.75 GB RAM but will not get good battery backup. in order to get good battery backup you RAM usage should be around 600mb. Mine is around that and i am happy with the battery backup. check these screenshots about my RAM usage after i press clear memory (it is around 630 before i clear memory)
I don't use any task killer or any battery saving app. all i have is around 50 apps. and every once a while i uninstall apps i don't use.
one of my game 'Diversion' (i love it and play it all the time) eats more battery.
Mobile companies get their standby time using the phone as it is, without installing apps and games from play store.
I charge my Note 2 100% and turn it off (around 10PM) before going to bed. other day i forgot to switch it off and in the morning (around 8AM) when i check it battery was still 99%. That is 1% use in 10 hours. that mean almost 1000 hours of standby (980 hours standby is what samsung says).
The endurance rating of the Samsung Galaxy Note II came out as 69 hours or a little under three days. This is how long you can go without charging the device assuming your usage is an hour of calling on a 3G network, browsing the web for another hour then watching an hour of video each day.
This post applies to all the android phones.
Please NO MORE posts about battery backup being BAD.

Wow !!!. I have disabled more than 20 apps (google+, s-voice, exchange, group play, google play movies and TV, google play magazines and TV etc) that I feel not to be run in background and don't use it anytime !!!.
AnonD-20890, 26 Dec 2013I have turned off some apps. But the updates were also uninstalled. I have force stop some apps.This feature is available in Note 3, where you can Disable Apps, without uninstalling updates, in Note 2 you have to uninstall updates then only you will get Disable option.
AnonD-53316, 26 Dec 2013You can disable the App, from App manager. I have turned off some apps. But the updates were also uninstalled. I have force stop some apps.

It is not the google which should decide the number of background apps. Only we should decide which should be kept in background. It is like intruding in our privacy / wish.
I think these apps sucks battery. There is END option in the default music player in android. Other apps also must have exit option.

Android is made for true and lag free multitasking (that is a different point that to make lag free it needs high configuration hardware) and for that many apps which are used regular or which needs working in the background such as Whatsapp, Facebook, Email Clients, never stopped. They are stored in Cache or run in background so that you may jump from one to another without any delay or lag and don't miss any thing. I like messages and mails to be received instantly as it is sent so for me apps running in the background are important, may be for you it is not, but that is not known by the app.
[deleted post]I don't care about those numbers ! If u want explanation about those things u can contact gsmarena ! I get a very good battery backup because I use battery saving and managing app ! I have no idea if touchwiz has to do anything in this or not ! I use go launcher ! Oveall I m very happy with my note2 !
I don't blame anyone, Isn't it better for u if u get solutions for problems? If the phone makes us angry then it is our loss, it won't affect Samsung or Android !

Whether to factory ... moreI never used any indecent words in this forum, I only say what is practical may that hurt or not. You are feeling that battery back up is bad, it is natural all symbian users felt that way when they hold android but that does not make the phone worst or whatever.
ANY BODY FROM PAKISTAN?? Who has gone for 4.3 update for note 2 from factory version??? whats the negatives and positives? as many people give confusing remarks regarding battery backup etc ,currently my N7100 is going around 20-22Hrs easily with all surfing stuff,chat and calls. Kindly give opinion brothers what to do as in pakistan the total package is of 752mb instead of 701mb as most people on forum mentioned

Then it is your mistake to blindly support android phones. So please do not start again.
AnonD-20890, 26 Dec 2013Ok. Whether to do factory reset or not dependa on each other's wish.Right ! Good educated and the one who have enough knowledge about phones will follow the instructions n recommendations and he won't face any problems ! The one who ll ignore it will face problems and may be he will keep insulting and bashing Samsung and android for this, that person should understand that it is his mistake !

Whether to factory ... moreif u won't do factory reset, there is possibility u ll face problems or u won't face problems but if u do factory reset u ll surely won't face any problems ! Factory reset is recommended by software developer and phone makers ! bcoz this is made by them, we should follow their instructions and recommendations ! We should not do according to our wish if we don't want to face any problems !
This is the simplest explanation and I m being polite and friendly to help u ! Now it's all upto u if u want a solution for problems or not !

Whether to factory reset and upgrade or first upgrade and factory reset depends on every users' wish and the the problems they face or not.
I think you are advicing in a decent manner now. So lets take a oath to make this area a decent one from 2014 onwards. But paragb and parbinder should also cooperate in this regard.
[deleted post]dude, see u always face problems bcoz of ur this type of attitude ! it is always recommended and necessary to factory reset phone before upgrading ! This is not said by me ! It is bcoz it is necessary n important ! very sad that u don't know very common things ! I m not forcing u anything but at least don't spread wrong info! good luck !
