    Recently bought a Samsung Note 4 (Voda) network. The Phone itself is great, runs smoothly and I'm 100% happy with the phone purchase I've made. On the day the store clerk set up everything on the phone, and allowed me to sign into various apps (samsung/google etc)

    I have been looking through forum threads and reading battery life guides on this forum. Some users report 12 hours + battery life on their note 4.... well my battery lasts approx. 4 hours before it needs a recharge. When I'm browsing through the phone I can see the %'s drop every minute.

    I installed battery doctor, which noted I had 17 hours left.... which was untrue as the hours began to drop minutes after it ran.....

    I have factory reset the phone, I have removed my Micro SD card (I thought this may have caused issues). I have cleared the cache partition.

    Someone recommended to download GSAM on one of the forums. I did this, but all it did was tell me how much battery life I have left.


    My question is, could the phone be faulty? Should I return it? The Phone is 3 days old.

    Welcome to AC.

    Yes, return it. You've paid for the warranty, so don't hesitate to use it.
