Samsung Galaxy Note 2 users - what's battery life like?

How much battery life are you Samsung Galaxy Note 2 users getting?
I'm hearing stories of up to three days on a single charge with minimal use!

I guess with minimal use you could, theoretically, get 3 days out of it. In the real world (and if you use your £500 phone enough to justify owning it) you'll get a day out of each charge, with no worries about or running out of power before you go to bed.

I hade a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for 3 weeks. I used it heavily: 3 email accounts on push, 2 Twitter accounts on 30 mins refresh, 3G and WiFi almost always on. Some sms texting and a couple of calls. In addition I tried loads of apps, tweaks etc etc etc... I was using it a lot more than most people (incl myself) would do under normal circumstances, but I wanted to get the most out of it while I had it. It easily lasted a full day and a half with juice to spare.
2 full days shouldn't be a problem, and 3 are feasible (maybe even more if you cut WiFi and 3G to when you need it rather than always-on and go easy on screen brightness).

I usually get down to about 40% by the end of the day, but I have Google now on, which I understand munches through the battery life. The battery life on the note 2 is good compared to other smartphones, but not quite as perfect as I'd hope for. Have two spare batteries and the official Samsung charger with built in stand thingy (stand doesn't charge the battery).
