    Hey guys I'm new here and the note 8 is my first galaxy phone and loving it can't believe I stayed with apple for almost 10 years the battery on the note is great I lasted over 12 hours with moderate use so I know it would last me a whole day with heavy use but my my thing is turn down screen brightness and the resolution down but in all I love this thing

    Welcome to DroidForums, jay.brooks.73307 and welcome to the world of Android! Enjoy your note 8! It's a great phone. I can't wait to get mine. Trying to be patient, hoping the price might drop a little before I order mine but it's not easy.

    yep, the note 8 battery is great. Mine has been off the charger for 9 hours with moderate usage and it shows 82 percent left. It is the best of all the notes I have owned over the years.

    turning down the resolution and brightness works also what helps is making sure all apps are closed when not in use.

    Android and Google have both pretty much said publicly that "background apps" do not really impact battery life at all. They aren't truly running.


    Apple exec: Background apps on iPhones don't gobble up battery

    I know what they say but I have seen what happens with my phone when I leave some apps open - especially those with a lot of ads or refreshes a lot.

    What are some good battery saving tips besides screen brightness?

    I feel like they have to be running to an extent... Every now and again, my phone starts getting very laggy when scrolling around, and when I go to my apps and "Clear All", my phone is smooth again. I mean, they're doing enough to make an impact on the performance of my device anyways.

    Turn off BT and Wifi when not in use.
    Set location to Device Only
    Minimal savings but savings none the less.

    I did a test on this. since getting the note 8, every night when I get home from work, my phone would still have around 83 percent. last night before going to work, I open five apps, four tech news apps and topix. Just got off of work a few minutes ago and my phone showed 64 percent. I used the phone at work about five minutes. usually it is more - about 15 or more.

    Not sure why android and google says background apps dont use battery but from my point of view, they are off base.
