    I would assume everyone getting such great battery life is AFTER a few charge cycles? I've had mine 2 days and not broke more than 14 hours of (granted somewhat heavy)use.

    Only had this phone for a few days and I think the battery is starting to take its shape. I hope it gets better from here. Man I love this phone more and more.

    PS. Do you all leave "Fast Charge" checked or unchecked? I would see myself needing to select fast charge if i get home and need a fast charge before i go somewhere but what about plugging it in overnight? It wont hurt it or anything if i leave it uncheck and only check it when i need it will it?

    Perhaps you missed the part where I stated that whatever works for you works for you and he (being sensitive) took it as an attack and decided he must respond with that hilarious response. Its okay if you missed that part, just being forthright here! I have no qualms with how somebody uses their phone, I couldn't care less I just found it odd that someone posted a picture showing two days of use with only 2 hours of SOT and commented while also contributing to the thread with my own stats. Again I said, to quote myself, "whatever floats your boat." Whatever works for you and makes you happy is what that means for clarification to anyone that may have never heard that saying.


    I dont know, your posts just keep adding to the evidence, but I digress. You do seem like you view the forum here as you against the world and are really defensive over nothing to the point of humor. I'd say it was I that struck your nerve, but it appears that that is just the way you are. Im sorry you feel the need to fight! Dont worry, your phone usage is good enough for the Note 4



    Whats the SOT? Im curious to hear what you personally define heavy use as, Id love to know where my own use falls in that category.
    Why is it odd to have 2 days of use and only two hours of screen time?

    He could be rooted and using an app to stop certain battery draining apps running in the background.

    If it wasn't for kids and my gf using my phone. I personally would have the same usage. As I posted before a day of usage and barely 3hrs of screen on time.

    Where you see odd I see perfection. That's wonderful stand by time to expect when I decide to jump and root it.

    Read somewhere, it is something to do with SD card scanning for file in continuous loop.
    I am getting good battery life but android system is on top always.
    Today I transferred all my data to desktop, reformat the card using phone itself in storage, and transferred the data back, I noticed as I moved from iPhone few movies were not compatible , it asked me convert that.

    Once I did that and let it settle for few hours ( media server to scan all files) I am seeing android system is way low now and screen is on top which it should be.
    Not sure if this fix issue for you too but worth a try!

    What if I don't have an SD card in yet? Could it be searching for one, this causing the drain?

    Here are my stats for which I would consider moderate my usage. Web browsing, instagram, twitter, clash of clans, and spotify streaming at the gym... My first 2 full charges

    Can someone give me an honest opinion on how my battery is doing??? My friends note 4 lasted 1 day 18 hours with 3 hours on screen time so mine feels like a failure in comparison

    What do you guys think about my battery life? Not using any power save options but currently have Guru learning my habits and have shut off majority of applications from auto syncing except my email and a couple other things.

    One should never analyze battery without posting screen shots of general battery (small graph, android system/os, screen on, whatever apps are consuming power), detailed battery (big graph, signal, location, wifi, wakes, screen on) , and screen on (percentage and time on).

    The most important one is screen time, click screen it'll tell you how long the screen was on, I get up to 5 hours and a half, some people here get 7 which is phenomenal

    3 and a half hours of screen time, 2 hours of talk time, 2 hours of music. Those are my.major offenders. Currently at 28% battery life left. Not using any battery save features except guru. And Bluetooth \ wifi on all day.

    Very happy with the battery on this phone. Had a typical day. 5 hours worth of phone calls, 50 or so emails, 20ish texts, about an hour of games, a movie and this device is still going strong.

    Yeah man. Battery life is pretty good to me. And at 28% left you probably squeezed out another hour or so. That's great!

    Moderate User. Usually, on a day that I work I get between 20-35 hours of life. On the weekends I'm on my phone more, average between 15-19 hours.

    I've had mine a few weeks and the battery was rubbish at first (although loads better than my iphone 5 which needed charging twice a day). I was getting around 11 - 15 hours out of it at first. I turned off Samsung Push Services as well as a few other things which seemed to be draining it, gave it a few full cycles of normal charging and put it properly to bed at night and now I'm getting over 2 days out of one charge on my normal use (not really a heavy user).
    I did get a bit obsessed about the checking the battery use but I'm really happy with it now.

    I use all the power saving options at night including greyscale and typically lose around 2-3% overnight. I also use battery doctor which switches it to super saving mode at night. I keep everything other than bluetooth on in the day now.

    I am using lean droid battery saver and disable apps I don't use and with third charge with lite use some and Med use at 28% two days and 8 hours. And just think I was pondering if I should give up my droid Maxx. Best move I made

    Been bad lately. Not sure why. Used to get over 5 hours screen time easy. Now it's barely over 4. No new apps. Hmm
