Mine's not quite that bad but just leaving my Note on (no activity on my part) it goes to 10% warning in 5-6 hours !!
How do you go back a release? Since there's this battery problem and no feature upgrade why should I stay on 4.1.2?

My battery life is about the same as it was before upgrading. One thing to check is whether the bluetooth is on -- if you don't have a bluetooth device then turn this off in the phone, will save power.
Also turn the display intensity down and put a checkmark in the "auto" box -- get to these by pulling down the controls from the top of the screen. The default seems to be "way too bright" and this is the largest consumer of battery power in the phone.
And make sure GPS is off when you aren't actively using it -- it's a major power slurper.
That said, I don't really see anything useful yet that this (rather stripped down) version of JB does over the ICS I had running before. Will we ever see split screen operation on this? Not really much point in upgrading the OS without that.

Jelly Bean is a major improvement over ICS makes no sense to go back. I have been busy disbling all the built in programs and it has made an improvement.
As far as I am concenred it's the Note and not the OS. I had troubles with mine from the beginning (and I bought on day one), was at the AT&T service center a few times for issues and with the last one they had to replace the phone because it could not be reset. Well the replacement phone has not been flawless either.
Battery life has always been less than 20-24 hours, And with Jelly Bean the hardware can't accomodate it. What's the point of so little RAM on a phone? That's what slows it down. Sure I have bluetooth and GPS on; but even when I turn them off it doesn't make a vast difference.
More than likely I'll switch to the S4 (or whatever is new at the time) when I can upgrade.

Rest assured AT&T users - it's not your carrier. I'm in London on EE but with unlocked original samsung galaxy note GT-N7000 since January 2011. I downloaded and installed jellybean 4.1.2 about 3 days ago and have had disastrous battery events - catastophic disharge within seconds from 50% to shut down. Strange rapid re-charging within a couple of minutes to maybe 30%. I get lag in all sorts of ways, especially looking up contacts where I can wait a minute for "Simon" to show up; previously it would take a second or less. I get screen flickering - it's almost like an epileptic halo effect, seconds before a precipitous battery loss. I've not managed a day so far without at least one charge halfway through, plus of course overnight charging. All of this is post the update; none of these effects showed with ics. It makes the phone almost unusable. If I go out with it can I rely on being able to make or take calls? Not at all if I look at any emails etc. Can only hope google get a fix out v soon!

If the 4.3.3 ROM was amazing, why did you go back to ICS? Just wondering... also, which ROM did you use? Did you get the split sceen function in that one?
My I717 on JB seems ok (no battery issues anyway), but not faster or slower than ICS -- no Bluetooth, no GPS, and the screen brightness turned down.

How do you go back to stock ICS? This update has really killed my phone. I need to leave it plugged in, otherwise battery is at 50% in a couple of hours sitting idle. A whole bunch of services eat up memory and processing and I can't kill them. Facebook and social media turn themselves on in the background and run. I got an app killer, and they turn themselves back on in 5 minutes.
