    Re: SGS3 vs Note 2

    I can't speak for the gs3, but the note 2 that i own gets 4-5 hours of screen time with"yellow"coverage (under battery stats). I only have Twitter, Facebook,2 emails, and heytell, also a tiny bit of Pandora. However on Wi-Fi i can get about one hour of screen time per 10% of battery.

    I can also only speak of the Note 2..bigger battery and it always runs cool which I think helps tremendously.

    I get around 6 hrs screen avg on time all on 4G no wifi.. Idle drain is great.. Easily can do 18 or more with my usage.. I don't use power savings mode or wifi which is can add to life..

    Re: SGS3 vs Note 2

    I have no hands on experience with these but I'm about to buy a new phone and have been reading every comparison I can find and the SG3 is quite a bit behind the Note in battery life from what I'm gathering. Shouldn't be a shock considering how much bigger the battery is in the note but basically the SG3 is about average in battery life comparable to the iPhone but the Note is really only rivaled by the Razr Maxx.

    Again, that's just what I'm getting from reading forums and reviews and such so grain of salt and all that.

    Having owned both the Galaxy S3 and the Note 2, this is pretty much dead on. The battery life on the Galaxy S3 is good, but the battery life of the Note 2 is much better. I get pretty much the same battery life from the Note 2 that I got with the RAZR MAXX (which makes sense considering the Note 2 has a 3100mAh battery and the RAZR MAXX has a 3300mAh battery).

    I'd say that with moderate use (although "moderate" can mean different things to different people) in a solid coverage area, you can get through a day with the Galaxy S3 with no problems. You'll get through a day and half under the same conditions. The Note 2 can make it through an entire day with fairly heavy use, whereas the Galaxy S3 can't.

    The great thing about either one is that the battery is removable, something that is becoming more and more rare. You can just keep a charged spare on hand and switch it out if you find yourself running low.

    Re: SGS3 vs Note 2

    Definitely agree on the removable battery and them becoming scarce. I hate that too especially since we're being stuck with these phones for 2 years. The DNA is a masterpiece but that permanent puny battery won't be worth much after a year. After that I bet you'd be lucky to get thru lunch before needing to recharge but you're stuck with it for the next 12 months. That sucks and I hate this trend along with the move away from SD cards.

    People more and more live on their phones and weak non batteries and small storage space won't work.

    The Galaxy S3 destroys the Galaxy Nexus in battery life. It's also considerably better than the Nexus 4.

    And it's not even fair to compare the Galaxy Nexus or the Nexus 4 to the Note 2 in battery life. They're in completely different leagues, with the Note 2 so far beyond either.
