I had the Maxx HD for 11 days.. It beat the Note but with my testing I find I can get great screen on time comparable to the Maxx with this phone... I've done 6hrs screen time and 19+ overall easily... Also keep in mind that Maxx when I tested is on ICS.. Jellybean with Google Now running updates for scores /weather /locations can drain some more... No worries with this beast of a phone though...
《Take Note2 BK's here..》
At 55 years old I loooooove the bigger screen. No more in the pocket carrying, but who cares. Since I can disable weather/sports/etc/etc maybe i will get near that 32 hours of battery life--I'm Happyyyy!
Is JB (w/o Google Now) more battery efficient than ICS??
Did you return the Mazz HD for the SGnote2?
Also, maybe i will see that i have to have Google Now on and live with whatever batt life i get. I now have the Razr Maxx. Upgrade in 2 months. The price of the Gnote2 should be down from $2199 by then.
