    I am having battery life issues as well. I have data turned off and have only been using wifi. My screen brightness is auto and I have fully charged my phone up to 100% twice. During charge, I keep my phone sleeping. At 2:20 today, my phone was at 20% so I began to charge it. It is now 9:39 and I am at 80%!! Wifi has been off since charging, and i have only texted a few times..power saving mode is on as well but It doesnt seem to be doing anything. Someone please help me! What am I doing wrong?!

    BTW fast charge is checked off! It is just grayed out (I cannot uncheck it)

    Turn on fast charging in the settings. That's one thing. I'll let others who actually have a Note 4 chime in.

    I am a little concerned about the battery on mine. I got the Note for on Fri morning and been using regularly, no game, just my normal usage. I can literally see the battery percentage dropped before my eyes. I think the overall screen times that is really killing the battery.

    I am not having issues with my battery. Everything seems to be going well and I have my phone turned up to full brightness all the time.

    I looked in the manual and it says there should be a pop-up saying something about turning screen off...never got that seriously someone help. I am worried my phone or charger is screwed.. I don't care if my phone doesn't charge the supposed "50% in 30 mins" I just think taking SEVEN HOURS for 60% charge is NOT NORMAL.

    Be careful with full brightness. My Note 2 developed burn-in at the top of the screen for a years worth of full brightness.

    I charged mine 100% before going to sleep & woke up to the phone being at 80%. There was a small update that was supposed to fix battery life that came out a day or two before the release but no update is available on my At&t version. The battery drains fast on mine.

    I'm on Sprint too and am having battery issues. Drains fast and my screen is using 33% even with it turned down. This is only an hour after I was fully charged.
    I have checked for the update but it is not available yet.

    Wondering if it is a sprint issue then? did you just lose 4% in one hour?

    Your screenshot shows it charging over USB. Is that the way you have been charging your phone? You do know that charging over USB will only give you a fraction of the charge rate you would get through AC charging and would take a long time to fully charge your phone. If it's taking seven hours to get a 60% charge with an AC charger then yes you have an issue, with USB charging that length of time would be expected if the phone is powered on.

    So far I'm pleased with the battery life. I have been playing with it for most of the day without power saving on. My old phone would drain even when not in use overnight. I'm looking forward to seeing how long she's going to last. BTW, I'm on Sprint. Spotty service at times is not as hard on this battery so far.

    Has anyone else that's experiencing their battery draining quickly on the Note 4 noticed the WiFi arrows are active almost all the time? I feel that this is what's causing my battery life to drain too quickly. There are countless old forum threads from around 2012 that have this issue and it seems to be what I'm experiencing with the Note 4 on AT&T right now. I've tried almost every single fix I could find mentioned about this on various older forum threads with no success up to this point. I haven't had a chance to test if the battery life improves while not on WiFi yet.

    If you you look at the screenshot that you posted, where it shows "83% Charging (USB)" that means the phone is taking the charge at what it believes is from a USB port - like it would get while connected to a computer for instance. The maximum charge rate under those circumstances would be at 500mA (0.5A) from a USB 2.0 port. While charging through the AC charger plugged into a wall outlet the rate would be 2000mA (2A) approximately. Your phone is charging slowly because either there is a problem with the phone, the charger or the charger cable. Try disconnecting the cable from the phone and the charger block. Unplug the charger from the outlet that it is in. Go to a different outlet and plug everything back up and look at your battery screen again (the same one you posted the picture of above). Look where it shows the the percent and charging, see if it now says "Charging AC", if it does not try a different charger if you have one and also try a different cable too. By trying a different outlet, charger and cable you can eliminate which is causing the problem, lastly being a problem with the phone itself if different chargers, cables and outlet don't correct the issue.
