TheNeighbor, 25 Dec 2011Juice Defender app... Kills data and radios while phone is idle. Don't expect battery to last ... moreHi Neighbor. Just a quick question. Which is better, Juicedefender or Extended battery monitor? Juicedefender free version is limited in functions whereas the paid version is rather expensive. The Extended battery monitor is totally free and has full functions. I tried it but i am unsure if i did something wrong as the internet wouldnt enable even though i enabled it. Coupled to this all my settings went out with regards to folders only. Not sure what caused that but i dont think it was phone related but rather software installed by me. Since then i have uninstalled it but not sure if it was the likely culprit for the issues experienced. How is the experience with Juicedefender ultimate? Is it flawless? Easy to use? Battery monitor was but not sure if it caused problems. Its not a problem to purchase Juicedefender ultimate but just before i commit to this i will give the battery monitor 1 more try. In the interim period kindly leave your comment for me. I will feedback with the second try with Extended Battery monitor. Im unsure if this software has been optimized for the Note. Feedback has been good thus far but maybe it was used on other phones. Have you tried it or heard anything about it. There must be a reason why you chose a paid version from a full featured free version?

But if you like the eye candy, and don't want to worry about running out of power from heavy use, get the official extra battery and charger. We have the pleasure of changing to fresh ones.
i have been using this phone for the past 3 weeks now. initially the battery did not lasted long but after proper cycling the battery normally lasts for atleast 40 hrs. my last charge shows 2d & 41mins which is amazing, & with some heavy use it still lasts for 24 hrs which include 2g network surfing abt 2 hrs of calling & then checking the phone out every now & then which takes display. its doing pretty good for me. i have not been facing any battery issues & for people who are i would suggest u to keep the internet off & use it only when u need it u should keep in mind the display takes majority of battery so it can be curtailed also try clearing RAM after every 6-8 hrs to ensure proper usage, & a must restart of the phone after every 2-3 days.
after two weeks of conditioning the battery, it now lasts easily 15 hours of moderate use. superb device and it's an attention grabbed too!

Other than the above, I heard it's a good phone with decent camera and with a good app market.

Don't expect battery to last if you wifi tether or continuous browsing for 3.5 hours. Ease down on frequent push mail or social network app updated, just learn to check manually. Philippine networks charge for every damn update even unlimited data plans. Mine lasts for about 18 hours of moderate use.
Galaxy Note is really a nice phone. One issue that I'm encountering right now is the battery life. Even if I update it to 2.3.6 from 2.3.5 for me, both version have a battery life issue. Hope it'll be fix ASAP coz right now I'm really enjoying using it. #RECOMMENDED
battery life really sucks! ive tried everything from draining it then charging for 8hrs while its off, also tried charging it after while on still the battery keeps draining fast grrr!!! Planning to go to Samsung shop and ask about this issue and hope they give a good answer and solution...
