my sgn2 battery easily drain off. can advice what to do how to do?

I basically rooted my device for better hardware control and installed Greenify to hibernate apps to kill their constant wakes. Then again I do browse a lot, and downloading torrents daily. A charge usually gives me about 5 hours + actually 12 hours stretch with 10 to 20% charge left. Never leave it empty or you find it not charging anymore. Never also leave it constantly plugged with fully charged for long periods of time or else you shorten the life for its limited number of charge cycles. I charge the spent battery on a separate charger. Yes, i carry a spare battery.

I got 18 hours stretch on one charge during the first few weeks, with heavy use, with almost 8 hours screen on time. Battery loses its charge holding over time. I was thinking of getting the Zero Lemon 93000mAh extended battery for this, but I plan to get the Note III.

The ZL battery practically gives you days of heavy use. I hope Samsung maintains the battery replacement option so that I'd get a 3rd party extended battery than a silly non-removable type to brag that my device is thin. I'd like to be able to stay wireless more and not worry about plugging in all the time to get the most out of my unlimited data plan.

Just like you, I only use whatsapp, facebook, simple web browsing, see traffic condition. But the battery drained terribly. So in the end, I traded in for Note 2 (whose battery life is much better, charge only once per day)

I think Samsung Note II is a good option if you want a big screen and picture clarity while viewing videos and pictures. I have found this to be better than Galaxy S3. NoteII is more handy when compared to Note I. Battery does not drain off easily.

Just got my galaxy note 2. i have to say this...this phone is a killer. i was struggling to choose between S4 & Note 2. Am glad i went for the note. The battery is very impressive. I am always on the net,watsapp,facebook and checking work emails on it, but still get to 50% when i go to sleep. So if your still undecided which phone 2 buy. Dont think twice, go grab one for urself. you wont regret it.
