Hi folks, i just coming from Sensation. Note 3 is my first phablet. My purchased were based on its big, beautiful screen, and the new faux-leather back, and I just love it. Every one know battery life issue is the nature of Android phone. Dimming brightness, turning off auto and Location services the battery life, on average, lasts a solid day without too heavy usage, but if I know I would play many music and games, etc. I would rely on my mpj extended battery. Since Christmas is almost upon us and my great experience with the battery, Ive ordered several more batteries and would give them to friends have complained abt their battery life...lol..
