    I don't think that's bad at all. A lot of factors - signal strength, WI-Fi on, weather apps, etc.

    Sounds about right. Are you using battery saver during that time? I charge mine overnight so I dunno what the typical drain would be not using a phone lol

    So WiFi was off ... was mobile data on? This doesn't sound that bad.

    If you have mobile data on then it looks to be correct

    1%/hour is pretty good. I wouldn't worry about it.

    1% an hour isn't bad with WiFi or Mobile Data on ... The phone is having to keep those connections alive and still talk with the cell towers of your carrier. That really isn't that bad.

    Considering you have all that turned off... that is quite a bit. I leave my phone unplugged after 100%, turn on Pandora to play for 1 hour, leave WiFi, data... everything on. And I only have about 6% gone in the morning when I wake up (6-7 hours of sleep is typical). I mean it isn't a crazy difference we are talking about. But it seems like you went to a lot of lengths, but it is about the same that I am losing and I am leaving everything on.

    Their mobile data is still on. That's where all the loss is coming from. The S5 is actually pretty darn good at idling. With an 8 hour no use gap, I was able to get 36 hours out of one charge with minimal use.

    That's about what I'm experiencing on my S5. This phone definitely charges a lot faster than my Nexus 4 did.

    That means you only have 100 hours of Standby Time.
    Advertised Standby Time is 480 hours.
    Correct me if i'm wrong.

    The numbers manufacturers give are almost impossible to reach. They are best case scenario under conditions a phone will almost never be in.

    Just a general question, but what do some people have against charging their phone at night? I plug it in before bed, wake up and have 100% to start the day.

    Um, then they couldn't complain about battery life?

    I agree. That's what I do.
    But I've read that some can't charge it at night. One was due to where his electrical outlets were. And I think he was like me using an alarm clock on his phone.

    I don't usually charge devices overnight that sit a few feet from my head. Just paranoid about battery meltdowns lol

    I put mine into airplane mode overnight so the battery drain is very minimal if nothing at all.
