    Does this seem normal? If Im understanding this wrong, please correct me, but does this mean that I'm using my battery faster when my screen is off?

    Edit: I just realized how long it says since I've been off a charger, momentarily plugged in at meijer to print a picture, so maybe it means since then with the screen off I've used that much? Will check again tomorrow after normal use and update

    Was it running off a full charge two hours ago when you unplugged it? Or was that the Meijer printing?

    It was off the Meijer printing, I'm not exactly sure what percentage it was at then but it wasn't charged since 10a so it seems about right.

    This charge I made some phone calls and what not. Mostly texted throughout the day and before bed played some gta and peggle and then watched some netflix. Over a day of usage at 9% isn't too bad.

    Man how are people getting these numbers? ! Over a day is cool, but 8 hours of screen on time is insane! I can barely get mine to hit 4.5 hours and that's with Greenify and turning on UPSM when I sleep!

    I'm really not taking any extraordinary measures to get these times. I'm running TouchWiz, I do not run Greenify or any memory-cleaning app, I do not use any power saving mode, I keep my brightness down at about 25%, and I've turned off the following programs (and Softcard, which is not shown because it would require attaching another screenshot just to show it):

    Hmm, I wonder if Touch Wiz uses that much less power than my Nova Prime launcher does. If not, it must be a combination of your 25% screen and being in a great mobile reception area maybe?

    Except I'm not in that great of a mobile reception area. I'm in one of those areas where many times the phone won't even ring when someone calls, but a short time later I'll get their voicemail. It drives me crazy when this happens! But to be clear, this is not a Note 4 issue. The same thing used to happen with my iPhone 5. It's just spotty reception.

    Well then I would like to know your phone's secret because that's twice the screen time I've seen most posters on this board get! #jealous

    I feel for you, godz. I wish I could help. Perhaps you make and/or receive a lot more phone calls than I do? I actually don't use the phone much - 3 or 4 calls a day at best. My daughter (who lives in Illinois as well, btw - Chicago to be exact) and wife both prefer texting, so that's how we communicate mostly. I do, however, get and send a lot of email every day. And much of the screen time seen in my screen shots is a result of trying out features of the phone (it's the best phone I've ever owned), downloading and trying new apps, listening to podcasts, and things like that.

    In case I hadn't mentioned it before, I'm on Verizon. I don't think that has anything to do with my battery's longevity, though. It's always possible, I suppose, that batteries themselves, even though they are all labeled the same, vary in capacity from the factory. One would hope not, and it's not very likely, but it would be a logical explanation for the differing experiences people are having with apparently similar configurations.

    If you think of anything you'd like me to compare with your Note 4, let me know.

    I am getting about 7 hours steady for a fortnight or more. Some of those were guesstimates as I physically couldn't use the phone enough to run it down. Hit over 7hrs multiple times though.

    Picked up an official spare battery pack with charger, spare battery and carry box so I am set for 14hrs of SOT without having to go near a plug...great phone so far for me!!

    I got my Note on Tuesday and haven't really kept my hands off of it for too long, so this really wouldn't be a typical day with normal usage habits. Today I consistently left my screen brightness to about half. I skimmed through a couple youtube videos. Tested out a couple internet browsers and did a lot of web browsing in general. Downloaded and tried some apps to connect on my chromecast. I took a couple pictures and about 3 small videos. I used several applications and more than anything I just did a lot of playing around with phone's UI to see if I came across lag. All this was done while I was connected to "wifi". Again, my day basically consisted of me being lazy and sitting on my couch with phone in hand. Tomorrow I will have more realistic use since I will be working.

    How do you get those aliases in your notification pane? The ones for s finder and quick connect?

    So I think I have confirmed my suspicion that I can stretch my battery life by using my phone less often, but my on screen time still stays about the same. I still don't know how people are getting 7/8 hours screen time, esp if they're in bad reception areas.

    What's the point of posting battery life stats if you are going to charge your phone halfway? That 6 hours + screen time is flawed, no?
