Bunyip22, 20 Jan 2013Every mobile device will get warmer when running heavy processes. Typical use my Note 2 is ... morebut i only palyed 15 min and the upper portion of the screen became hot I'm afraid from damaging my screen
used optimus 2x, htc one x, now galaxy note 2 ... best thing is battery back up on 3g network its giving me more than 24hrs of back up.....awwwwwssmmmmmmm.....
i am using note 2 for past 4 months, updated to 4.1.2, i ca say i have not faced any battery problem. guys you have to check few things. if u keep wifi,bluetooth,gps, high screen brithness, 3g always on then battery will drain out very quick, chk the above said options i am sure you will gain battery power. wen i have moderate use i get easy 2.5 days, only calls, sms , and little internet i get 3 days, and heavy use i still manage 2 days.
Does this phone have dnse(digital natural sound engine) like galaxy note?? Or ny sound effects??? Plzzzzz telll thnx in advance
Bunyip22, 21 Jan 2013On 4.1.1 the battery used to drain 1-2% per hour when not being used. Now it is more like 3-4%... moreThanks for the warning. I gauged my battery usage with Internet on and downloading with 10% per 4 hours running with One Power Guard. If I were you, and you have made the mistake of updating to 4.1.2, you can download the original 4.1.1 firmware for the Note II from sammobile.com. You can specifically load the country firmware and it's about 1GB worth. Learn from YouTube.
You can load the original firmware in order to make your warranty still valid if there is hardware issues you wanted fixed. There's no way of telling if you had rooted it before. You just note down the firmware's serial code to get the right one.
Another way of prolonging your battery is with Juice Defender by scheduling your radio syncing with longer intervals and it turns off bluetooth, wifi and GPS signals for you after an idle period.
sus, 20 Jan 2013Can any one tell me how battery life of dis phone?????69hour straight up
sometime its hanged in between while using skype and screen goes black.Can anybody en-light me on this issue and one more issue digital compass doesn't give the correct direction as the Apple Iphone does it.I would request to the Samsung company to be more accurate in precession of the gadgets on the Samsung Note II.To make it different from Smart phone. I hope its making sense.
TheNeighbor, 21 Jan 2013I keep hearing this 4.1.2 upgrade problem of more power being drained. How bad is it? Like ho... moreOn 4.1.1 the battery used to drain 1-2% per hour when not being used. Now it is more like 3-4%.
I can still get through a day on a single charge but no longer than that. I would say the battery life is 60-70% of what it was.
The drain is most noticeable when not using it. The more people that kick up a stink the more likely it is that Samsung will fix it!
DON'T INSTALL 4.1.2 IF YOU WANT GREAT BATTERY LIFE.
The other problem is that i have to disable wifi power saving in service mode every time i reboot my phone or i cant connect to wifi.
When i turn my mobile Data it does not come ON. Only way to make it work is to restart the phone. This happens at time. Is there a way to make it work without restart.
TheNeighbor, 21 Jan 2013I keep hearing this 4.1.2 upgrade problem of more power being drained. How bad is it? Like ho... morei am on 4.1.1 too 'n no problem at all,its just perfect, so i am gonna stay on this version
i ve heard new version has alot of trouble
battry drains fast and it takes forever to charge .. I think it's because of the update too.. any solution guys?
TgKhan, 20 Jan 2013Can any one tell me please as to which handset should i go i am thinking of HTC+ or Samsung Ga... moreDear... I am also fan of HTC mobiles due to sense UI...I searched a lot during this month regarding HTC+ VS Note 2...I played with both also.......Believe me Note 2 is fa far better than X+.....Why ? my points are under....
2gb RAM VS 1 gb RAM ----Hell of difference
Removeable Battery VS Non-removeable....again hell of difference
3100mah VS 1800mah.......hell of difference
Stylus Functionality VS not Stylus....hell of differnce
oh man this list is long... simple is that..if you can manage size (and its has worth) then you will do a huge mistake to regret Note 2...Its totaly a different device...you can not imagine that how powefull is this device...HTC+ is ordinary type of phone like all other phones of Quad core from different manufacturers...but many people including me love the Htc sense..For this purpose i already have htc sensation XL....
I've convinced 6 people to get the first Note than an iPhone as they saw the potential of doing more. Now, I managed to start convincing people to sell off their iPhone 5 to get the Note II. The iP5 is surprisingly very expensive at $750 to $1000 for something that is a mid-functioning restricted unit at only 16GB capacity.
The iPhone 5 just looks nice. I like the thin profile. But that's about everything I can compliment about it.
Bunyip22, 20 Jan 2013Don't upgrade to 4.1.2 as there is battery drain. PLEASE FIX SAMSUNG!!! Normally there i... moreI keep hearing this 4.1.2 upgrade problem of more power being drained. How bad is it? Like how many % less is the battery stamina? I'm still in the original 4.1.1, but rooted.

agnem, 20 Jan 2013my mobile screen get hot while playing games like NFS or Asphalt 7 any one face the same problem?Every mobile device will get warmer when running heavy processes.
Typical use my Note 2 is at about 30 deg C. Using heaps of 3G its about 33-35 and heavy gaming for an hour or so it might get up to 37-38.
Also the ambient temperature will affect this... If its snowing your device will be cooler. If you live in the desert and are using it in the sun it will be a lot hotter.
Parrysingh, 20 Jan 2013Yes but now I am back to original out of box cover. The slim feeling is really cool.Huh...
