    Why am I getting bad battery with stand by. I am on AT&T as well… Do they really need the update or what?!

    The phone was 100% before I went to bed with the wifi on though.

    I did use the camera a bit in the morning and do other simple things with the phone like to check a couple things. Also Google Play did some updates to apps in the phone, but nothing too crazy.

    I was thinking, do you think S Health was using the battery during this time? Is there any way to have it not drain the battery.

    Also I had Power save battery turned on as well.

    Did you try restarting the phone? Mine looses 5% battery overnight (8hrs).

    Nope, I have tried restarting. Is the 5% with wifi on? Will that help?

    Here is the screen on time.

    When I got the phone 2 days ago drain was bad. I had same issue with S5 until I changed runtime system to ART in dev. options.
    Try that maybe it will help.

    Was going to take it all the way to 5%, but figured I'd just grab it now. I've gotten into my normal usage patterns now and I'm honestly pleased. Usage info:

    Gmail sync/push
    Facebook 1 hour sync
    Twitter 1 hour sync
    Evernote daily sync
    Dropbox auto upload on (WiFi only)
    Google Now on w/ all bells and whistles
    Location always on, high accuracy
    All motion gestures disabled
    All bloat that can be disabled without root is disabled
    Google Now Launcher
    Auto brightness

    My results were pretty decent for the first weekend after getting the phone on Friday. Charged to full Friday night i believe and didn't plug it in until late Sunday. Moderate use; social media, downloading apps, tweaking some stuff etc. Today begins the real test but so far i am happy with the performance.

    That is impressive. Do you have bluetooth, wi-fi, and NFC on? Do you also have an S-view case or just a regular case?

    You know what is something interesting I would like to see? A test using UPSM only from 100% and see how long that will take to drain the battery with average use.

    Bluetooth normally off, I turn it on manually when I get in the car and also when I am at the gym.

    Wi-Fi is ALWAYS on, especially since my T-Mobile signal is weak to non-existent in my condo.

    NFC is ALWAYS off.

    Rocking the Note 4 naked while I wait for my Samsung (Protective, not S-View) case to arrive on Thursday.

    So I originally posted this first picture. Of 6h+ screen time with 20h+ total time. Until today. I installed Nova prime. I used to love it so much. But after this I immediately uninstalled it. My use was the same as the day before. No gaming no videos. Same cell reception. Just a warning to anyone else. Or if someone can give their usage with Nova. I literally didn't add any other apps etc. Just Nova, Nova prime, and the Nova notifications plugin to show the little red numbers on the corner of emails, text messages, etc.

    *Edit: Can't post images, new to the forum (forgot this wasn't xda).

    New stats w/ Nova: 7h44m total, and 3h screen time at 30% left.

    Old stats w/o Nova: 20h total, 6h10m screen time at 5%

    Maybe that's the thing under Settings/Controls/Motions and Gestures/Smart Alert? Except I have mine on and don't have any of those wake locks. Have never seen that before. I'd say go through settings and turn off all the different features, like staying on while you look at it etc. And test and turn them on one by one to find the culprit

    I'll see what I'm getting with the stock battery But from my experience I am getting battery life over my Note 3. .

    However I can barely get through the day without having to charge. And that's with normal use without any heavy gaming. If I do any gaming then I'll have to charge 2-3 times during the day

    To say the least I'm waiting for the zerolemon extended battery and case

    A lot of podcast listening. Mostly all day. Downloaded a few podcasts. On Wifi most of the day. About a hour and a half on phone calls. A little balancing of the checkbook. In and out the AC app. Some browsing. Been pretty heavy use since I got it. Just can't put it down.

    I can't post pics as well due to being a new member. I've been an iPhone user since day one. I decided to make the leap to the note 4 instead of the 6 plus. So far I'm loving this phone, but my battery life is pretty bad. I'm on ATT if that matters. My Android system never drops below 30%. Could that be my issue?
