And lessen the screen time out. in my case though, i set it to 10 minutes, its longer but i can just turn off the screen after i use the phone, using a screen time out widget.

Im also not a hardcore gamer so there are only a few games i have and are light. i disables lockscreen as it is a hassle for me. I dont use live wallpaper. my brightness is not set to auto and is very low. I enabled power saving. i dont use mobile data as i have strong wifi at home. Wifi is ON thw entire day Btw. Only facebook, Email, chikka app are logged in. Other apps i make sure my account is logged out. What else...? Hmmm.. im still left with 15-20% before dhutting the sack. Im not sure whats going on with your phone but perhaps i helped a bit.a bit.
AnonD-96404, 03 Jan 2013Does any one know that it supports flash Streaming ?? online streaming ? From my experience, it doesnt support live streaming because it doesnt support silverlight which is required for live streaming. If there are other format aside from silverlight that supports streaming, that i dont know yet.
[deleted post]I use my note 2 as it comes out of the box, and also got GS3 and iphone 4s. We in the family use them all without any extras or additional apps or whateve, and I have same problem...same use and the smaller battery of 4s is giving better usage than note 2 and GS3. Maybe there are apps running in the background that drain the battery...

Tell me which country u live and ur native language. hi,
i am from India and you can help/direct me in English and pls let me know by following your directions will i be still having the warranty of the phone and all other benefits.
I recently sold my Note 2 and purchased iPhone 5. I hope this explain you which one is better. Both the Os's have apps, games etc but the THING Android sucks at is battery.
I sold my 4S and upgrade to Note II considering that massive 3100mah battery will last a day for a traveler like me, but it was completely opposite.
I have tried custom roms, stock deodexed roms, custom kernels, removed all bloatwares from Samsung douchwiz, but still it didn't last a day for me. Average screen time was 5-6 hours on Note II which would be the best if you compare it with SGS2, SGS3 and HOX.
Compare the same with iPhone 5, right now my battery is 56% with screen time of 5hours 43mins, 15 hours standby. It gonna last more than a day.
Same apps, same social bunch of apps like facebook, whatsapp, twitter, instagram which I installed in Note II.
Now, decide yourself. Either enjoy massive screen, huge custom roms, customizations, custom kernels, tons of launchers and suck battery life for 10-15 hours.
OR enjoy closed OS, no customization, no different launchers, no jailbreak (iPhone 5/iOS6), amazing battery life of 1-2 DAYS.
Make your choice!
Kaka, 04 Jan 2013in Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100, can I used my external drive memory?You can use an external hard drive or flash drive by using an adapter (micro USB male to regular USB female) to connect the hard drive/flash drive to the micro USB socket of the Note 2. This lets you read files or play video direct from the external drive without have to transfer the file into the phone.
updated my note to 4.1.2.
phone is on charge from 6 hours still charging,showing battery.80%
80% in 6 hours.samsung do something
Hi I notice that there is a hissing noise from the SGN 2 charger after a while. Is this normal? I am using the orignal charger that came with the phone with a UK plug clip in the UK. Just concerned that it does not screw up the phone.
