[Q] Dear Note 3 owners, what do you think of the battery life?
I've had the Note 3 for some days now and I gotta admit, I'm having a hard time getting thru one day with heavy usage. I went from my Galaxy S II which held an entire day with moderate usage(with custom kernel+rom tho) expecting to never, ever worry about battery life no matter what but the truth is, that it is much harder to get thru a day now. I dont know if it's my phone or just a general 'issue' but I expected it to last much longer than it does.
**I've done a few test as you can see here**
Reinstalled, no wifi, no gps, no bluetooth, automatic brightness and went to bed(it was at 98%):
Woke up, used it for radio(downloaded TuneIn for radio) + news(aka Reddit News) while eating, for one hour. Still no wifi, gps, bluetooth and automatic brightness on
So it ate 20% battery on 1 hour with radio + Reddit News. Used the phone the whole time, screentime was 47m out of the 1 hour.
I just reinstalled everything, again, and did another test. Havent touched any app at all but YouTube. Wifi and GPS were on as default and didnt touch that. I opened YouTube and played a 2 hour movie with auto brightness and 50% media volume. This was the outcome
The red line shows when the video stopped. So it drained 20% battery on 2 hours.
What do you think of this, how is your battery life and are you satisfied with it?
I'm wondering if I should send mine in for repair, but I dont know if its my device or just pretty normal of a Note 3...
