    Not sure what I'm doing wrong. Battery seems to drain fast.

    You might have a rogue app draining the battery. Mine lasts all day with close to 50% by the time I get home. One day I t tried my hardest to kill it and after a 20 hour day I still had 15% left with 7 hours of screen time. I really hope you find out what it is. ..

    How can you find out if you have a rogue app?

    You could check in Menu>Settings>Battery to see what is using most of your battery.

    For a much more detailed view of what's happening, install GSam Battery Monitor from Play store. There is a free version. It will show exactly what apps or processes are sucking the life out of your battery.

    keep a spare battery and charger at work. Swap them when to get ready to go home.
    You'll never run out of juice.

    Coming from a Razr Maxx, I am very impressed with the battery.

    Do you have a lot of things synced, like your FB, Twitter, mail?

    Came from the Maxx as well. It will last me from 5am-10pm with heavy use.

    One app that I know kills the battery is Words With Friends. I get up every morning and unplug my phone from the charger at 6:30. With my normal usage, by the time I go to bed around midnight or 1 am, the battery level will be at around 30 percent. However, if I am going back and forth with my wife on Words With Friends for that day, the battery will hit 30 percent around 7 or 8 pm.

    My Note 2 goes all day also. I start at 100% in the morning and at 40-50% at night when it goes on the charger and that is with EVERYTHING synced. 4 Email accounts, Facebook, Twitter, Engadget and BW.

    One thing I noticed is that this battery takes forever to charge. Has anyone else found this to be true?

    It should only charge slower if you're using a charger that is not the original one..

    ⚡Take Note2 BK's here.. ⚡

    It shouldn't take very long at all to fully charge your battery if you are using a 2A Battery Charger (The one that it came with) Also want to make sure you have a proper cable that allows for that much power to go through. Not all USB Data/Sync cords charge at the fast pace with the 2A charger.

    For me with stock cable and AC charging, 20% to 100% takes under 2 hours.

    For what it's worth I think it was a weather widget and gps that was running my battery down, even though neither showed to be eating a lot of battery in the monitoring app. Too bad ... those were cool gadgets.

    Gps and navigation hit your battery hard. I keep mine plugged in when using those. Here sre a couple screen shots showing the previously mentioned app.
    Pretty cool app.

    I think these screen shots speak highly of the battery. Could've never dreamed of doing this with my thunderbolt.

    Is it ok to let the battery completely discharge before charging? Should I charge with the phone off a couple of times?
