Default [Q] N9005XXUFNF4 my battery drain is worse.(SORRY didn't see no Q)

Hi all.

This phone is becoming a joke, it seems that with every update Google or Samsung are crippling this phone.

N9005XXUFNF4 was supposed to improve battery life on the Note 3, so why is my battery drain worse?

I bought the Note 3 to do away with netbooks and tablets, but now I am being forced to use them again.

When I use the internet, browsing on the Note 3 itself, my battery can lose 50% in under 30 minutes. I am then forced to switch off data out of fear that the phone will not last the day.

However, when I tether a notebook or a tablet to the Note 3, it will give me about 8 hours of internet usage before it needs charging.

So what is the point of the Note 3 now? It is quickly becoming just an expensive modem.

Seems like you guys have got faulty hardware or something, my note 3 is soon a year old and it's doing just fine in the battery department. Try resetting your notes completely or try different roms if you are into flashing.

Simply solution. Flash skyhigh kernel and U will have 10 hours screen on time. Or 3 days normal usage. .

Do a clean flash, reflash stock in Odin and try again.

Faulty hardware? No. Faulty update or flash, most likely.

By using simple tools to monitor your battery usage, you could trace and eliminate problems. I use BetterBatteryStats.

No.

1. KK ruined battery life so you can't get over 6 hours of screen on in 4.4.2 unlike 4.3.
2. Different devices have different quality chips. You can't guarantee same results.
3. Show me your 10 hours screen on time with no underclocking or undervolting, or even a screen cap of 3 days of normal usage (Facebook, Whatsapp, Tapatalk)

Thanks everyone.

Unfortunately this phone has not improved. I can tether all day, but if I use the phone for what it was designed for, i.e, browsing internally it drains quicker than my bath.

I now have the most expensive phablet acting as a modem for other tablets, this really defeats the whole point of buying this phone.

I have been with Samsung since the GS3, but now my next phone will not be another Samsung.

There must be something wrong with your configuration, my phone lasts around 4-5 hours screen on.
