    Note 10 Plus - Unlocked on Verizon. Was hoping for closer to 8 hrs SOT.. About 90 minutes better than my Note 8, but still a little disappointed.. Also, as I was typing this with 4% left the phone shut itself down and would not restart till it was plugged in for a couple minutes.. That happen anyone else? Never happened on previous Notes.

    It's a little too early to tell and the device is probably still "Learning" your battery usage. Give it a few weeks and see how the battery life is then.

    Ya, the batt usage today on the note 10+ is about the same as yesterday on my old s9+, about the same usage amount too.

    20 hours and almost 6 SOT looks good to me. Thanks for this. Will like to see other results.

    This is actually normal. Battery meters tend to be less accurate when nearing zero. As batteries wear out, it'll happen more often and at higher percentages. It's possible your battery is already weakened from the factory, and draining it so far will only make things worse. Leave that sort of testing to the reviewers. They get their phones for free and don't keep them long, so it's no skin off their backs if the battery is worthless in a matter of months due to the abuse they put them through.

    I'll add that I am using the phone at full WQHD resolution, not sure how much affect if any that would have on the battery.

    That will have an effect on the battery life for sure, give it a couple of weeks for the battery to learn your patterns.
    I take it you're using the Snapdragon 855 chip and not the Exynos chip?

    Yes, Snapdragon.. I'll run a test back at FHD.. I watched a review of 10 things to do immediately and he said to turn set it to WQHD and get the full benefit of the screen.. Both look great, so I test and see if I gain battery life. Thanks!

    Overkill. I bet you won't notice a difference going WQHD vs FHD. Saving in battery is probably about 30 to 45 minutes SOT

    It's never good to take your battery down to 0% especially Lithium ones. They may have programmed into the phone to shut down with a few % left to save the batteries life. Some other manufactures do this (Apple).

    Old. LOL

    If I get same battery life as my "old" Note 9, I'll be happy. Bigger display with less than 10% more battery, seems a net zero gain. 855 is a much faster chipset.

    why does it matter if you start fresh or not? Almost everybody gonna wanna backup some things from there old phone to new. I backed up my wifi passwords, call history, contacts, text messages because i wanted that stuff on my new phone to be there and that was done from google drive and i restored some things i needed from samsung restore data as well. Again stuff i needed on my new phone so no other way to do it.

    Transferring independent files generally isn't an issue. The concern with transferring stuff like apps via backup/transfer services is that sometimes a glitch may happen during the transfer process that causes an app to misbehave. That's why it's best to just re-download apps from the Play store.

    855 is supposed to be more efficient, is it not?. Yes, bigger screen that's also less than 10 percent bigger.From what I see its the drain sitting doing nothing compared to the note 9.

    What are your power settings like? If you're running everything at max 5:48 screen on time is really good.

    On my Note 9 I set my power settings to medium, no difference in my mind (I came from an OnePlus). I easily got 9:40 to 10:00 screen on time. I'm sure with my Note 10+ it'll be even better. The battery life on this thing is amazing.

    Out of curiosity, what do you do that has you spend 7 hours out of 15 hours on your phone?

    Ha! That's not a typical day for me. I recently ruptured my Achilles and had surgery Wednesday, so yesterday was a day spent with my leg up doing nothing. Thus, exorbitant phone time.

    Ouch, sorry about the achilles. Had a friend of mine do the same (while celebrating a Super Bowl touch down) a few years ago.

    Makes sense in terms of time on your phone, of course. I was thinking maybe it was job-related.

    Nope. I do spend a lot of time on the phone (self employed, and I'm my own secretary) but not nearly that much on the average day.
