    Forum won't allow me to post images, but I get 12-14 hours of life, with 2:45-3 hours of screen on. I think my battery life is really bad. A lot of people are getting 5-6 hours of screen. It's the exynos version, but I don't know if it makes a difference.

    Most of my use is chrome, whatsapp, Gmail and playing music through Bluetooth. I don't have any games or social media in the background, or even weather widgets.

    WiFi and Bluetooth are always on, but all location services are off. I don't use power saving mode.

    Anyone have any ideas? I tried everything but couldn't find the reason for my bad battery life. Gsam didn't show anything out of the ordinary, it's just the android system itself burning battery..

    Hey everyone, I've been really happy with the battery life on my Note 4. Like almost everyone else, I haven't been able to put this device down! This particular chart doesn't reflect any game or videos but everything else!

    Here is me battery life, moderate usage after about a week of having it. This is so much better than my previous phone where I lived by a charger.

    Something is causing it. No idea what it could be.

    I'm very disappointed with the battery life. I'm getting awful life barely sufficient to go back home at the end of a business day with the cellphone still alive.

    Tapatalk are saying that i can't upload my screenshots because I still don't have 10 posts .

    I was taking tons of screen shots before I realized that these power readings do not reset unless you charge to 100% So I don't want to post any of those in case they're "tainted" from the times I never charged to 100.

    This is from moderate, maybe slightly heavy usage at some points. This also includes about 6 hours of me sleeping. I didn't use any power saving modes so I can get a 'pure' reading.

    This looks pretty close to what I was getting before, but my other readings were averaging closer to 5 hours of on screen time.

    If my older readings weren't tainted then I'm not sure why my battery life slightly dropped. I am using a new live wallpaper WP CLOCK, but there's not much animation besides the clock. I usually keep it on auto brightness too. Oh yeah- I've had the phone about a month now and I'm on Sprint.

    This seem normal to you guys?

    Seems normal to me. My guess is the live wallpaper is drawing from the system resources. Even then with a standby of 20 hours and 4 hours and some change of screen time that isn't bad. I rarely am on standby more than 12-14 hours and I get around 4.5 - 5 hours of screen time. I hate auto brightness so I keep mine about a third of the way up most of the time. Good battery imo

    Thanks! I also just started using the active apps widget and closing everything. Not sure if that affects anything. By "system resources" do you mean the Android System? Because I'm noticing that that bar is on top lately when the Screen bar graph used to be the top one.

    I'm also curious about seeing the posts of people with 6 hours of on screen time. Plus I read a review online where the reviewer claimed a day and a half of battery life with moderate use and 8 hours of on screen time

    That's interesting, have you been keeping track of your phone temperature? I heard that affects battery life. I just downloaded an app called CPU temp, wondering if my phone is getting too hot.

    No, I'll try that. But I'm heavy inclined to root my handset to go with the greenify and tame background apps and rogue Samsung apps and things like that.
    But that would jar my warranty I guess...

    Well how old is your phone? Maybe you should take it in and try to exchange it?

    4 days old in fact. But I doubt is a hardware issue. I got a Xperia Z3, coming from years of iPhone and I was disappointed about the colors and camera of the z3. But i was experiencing a terrible battery life either.
    So i dropped the z3 and got the note 4, because the screen and hoping for a difference in battery life (and I saw that you could have an extra battery kit for it).

    With a few hours with the note 4 i noticed a problem with the back button that practically missed every touch in it. I got it back to store on the same day and returned it for a new one (the one that I'm holding right now).

    I did it! Last Monday. No use, battery is draining the same way. For example, I got a flight today morning, and right now (3:15pm here in Brazil) my battery is in 13%

    Yeah I was referring to Android system. And I think bot the reviewer and other posters achieve those with features disabled like location and brightness all the way down (which is ridiculous because I can barely see it haha). I have no doubt that if I disabled everything and lowered my brightness from the already low level of around 33%, I'd get closer to 6 hours. Not worth it. My 4 or 5 hours of screen time is totally fine with me because I enjoy all the features of my awesome phone. Plus if you're ever in a bind just turn on Power or Ultra Power savings mode.

    I have found some apps I didn’t realizing where refreshing or fetching information on their own ever so often, I turned that off to manual. Hopefully that helps. Not sure what else to do. It’s not my battery, because I have two different ones I swap out.

    I dunno too much!

    Feel like my battery isn't doing so great. Here are my stats. Nothing crazy just Web browsing, instagram and Twitter and some clash of clans. Am I missing something I feel like I'm barely getting any screen on time.

    Battery problem solved. I had over 14,000 emails in my Gmail account and the same in my Comcast account. I did a big cleanup over the last few days. My battery has went from 6-8 hours to 17 hours. It was the freaking emails that was causing my battery to drain. I was just about to send my phone in to Samsung when I decided to deleted all the junk I have been keeping for the last 1 year so.
