    I chatted with someone on the XDA forum about screen on time and idle time. Turns out, Quick Memo MAY be draining some of our batteries and we don't know it. You have to manually force stop it, so.... I downloaded Greenify (i know.. don't hate) to hibernate that app. So far, I'm at nearly 2 hours SOT with 75% battery left.. That's WAY better than I was getting. I was averaging maybe 4 hours of screen time.. Now it looks like I'll be getting way more. I'll keep testing this out, but this is literally all that I changed, besides download GSAM and activating the adb permissions so I can see what's chewing through battery (nibbling I should say)..

    Because I keep forgetting to post screen shots.. This was today.. It's ok, but I got 5 hours of SOT while using about 45 minutes of GPS via Waze today.. Not bad.. I'm very happy with this finding.. It's literally only quick memo

    Interesting but unfortunate. Memo is very important to me. please leave long term updates regarding this because a third party memo app is not something I want to resort to. I always worry about battery issues with 3rd party apps.

    I force stopped it but I also noticed that it says it's always running 100% of the time.

    wonder if it's caused by the sync? I turned mine off and I do after reading this manually close the app.

    I'm considering trying this on my V20. I will have to use greenify as well because I don't want to disable the app since I do use it.

    Yeah it might work.. I would have never thought about it.

    My phone drained like 20 percent over night but I'm still going to get at least 4 hours of screen time.. I don't even know why I had that drain either.. We'll see. Haha

    QuickMemo can't be disabled on my G6, and it appears to be tied into all system software to where greenify has no effect. I just keep checking it every so often to see if it needs stopped. It's a little bit better with it not running but it still seems to draw some battery somehow.

    Seems like you can't disable the app if you're on Verizon.. Or ATT.. One of them.. I can uninstall mine.

    That's a handy feature. When you tap on battery does it list most or all of the system components? Just curious to see what Verizon did to make it different.

    Ugh more differences - gsam won't work even after I enabled stats via ADB, but I can view QuickMemo's drain from the built-in monitor.

    That sucks.. GSAM did work for me one day and didn't the next, I had to redo the ADB
