    33 hours on a charge. Lots of texts and probably 4 hours of Web surfing. 1 hour of Morning Joe . This phone is incredible. I love the text with. S pen. Thanks to the forums for that info. Probably about 500 other things I do not know about this phone. But this phone is simply awesome.

    Battery rocks... Make sure you register your phones on Samsung website.. They will send you email with 50% code to purchase accessories.. Up to 10 allowed.. I picked up 2 batteries for $50

    Make sure you're using the 50% off coupon when you place your order.

    Thanks user jseah. To text with S pen, go into settings and in input area. Go to Samsung keyboard and make sure S pen is checked. When you are ready to text, pull out the s pen and then open your text. Must be Samsung keyboard. A screen will display on the bottom. Just write or print and the text displays. It is neat. The pen had to be out before you open the text. If you don't do it just close text and poem it back up

    battery life is indeed awesome!
    I bought an extra battery, and yesterday did it's first full charge/ discharge.

    Only a little over 13 hours, but that was with an amazing almost 7.5 hours screen on time!

    The best I had ever had before was around 4 hours with my S3 - which I thought had good battery life. But to get almost TWICE that on it's first charge? It's truly incredible when you think of the power hungry quad core processor and the huge screen it has to power.

    Yes indeed.. I was just saying last night how nice and cool the phone stays during usage... I did 6.5 hrs screen time yesterday with 16+ overall.. It can do more as I don't try to conserve..

    I've never thought to check to see how much screen time I use on a charge. That said, yesterday was the one week anniversary of me picking up the Note 2. I have been plugging it into the charger each night as I go to bed to recharge it. Yesterday morning, I unplugged it from the charger at 6:30 am, and last night the battery meter went into the yellow zone and was at around 20% remaining when I went to bed at 3 am.

    It's kind of crazy that I'm still in the honey moon phase lol, can't put this thing down..... At least I have an idea of how it handles the battery In different situations.

    Glad you guys are happy!! I have a Razr Maxx and was thinking of getting the Maxx HD. Now that a fellow golfer showed up on the course with this beauty i said...OMFG!! I need good battery. Think it can equal the HD in your estimate. Upgrade in February.

    Don't know about the Maxx HD, but I do know that the battery in the Note 2 lasts longer than the battery in the Maxx. The only time my battery level dropped to the "yellow" (and it still was over 20%) was the one day when I unplugged it at 6:30 am and didn't plug it back in until around 3:30 am.

    I test drive the Maxx HD and this phone definitely hangs with it.. I'm truly impressed as I was with battery on the HD..

    I agree! Pretty amazing compared to ALL the other devices I've had and used previously! This is with Web browsing, watching many you tube videos and HOURS of music streaming from pandora and google music, email push all notifications and accounts automatically sync and live wallpaper.
