    3.75 - 4.25 hours. My Android System is just under or equal to percentage of battery drain as my screen. Is that wrong? I feel like it shouldn't be that high.

    I feel like these numbers should be higher but maybe I'm wrong.

    Hmm, that doesn't seem any better than my S5. I can do 5 hours easily.

    I used it in the same way I used my Note 3, and while I'm still getting around 4 or 5 hours of screen-on time, yesterday I unplugged at 6AM and by midnight, the phone still had 52% battery left. My Note 3 would need a re-fill at least on my way home from work.
    All radios on... ALL OF THEM, even GPS. Moto360 constantly connected, Spotify use for about 3 or 4 hours, streaming to the car on the ride from and to work. Quite happy, actually.

    I can't turn off S-Link because I have a lot of Sammy stuff at home, and they need that to play nice with each other

    I get between 4.5 - 5.5 for the most part... still waiting on the battery update (come on AT&T). I did get over 6 yesterday (wish i had taken a screenshot). I hope that's a trend not a fluke. I have my screen brightness set to auto, so a lot of it may have to do with the brightness of the environment you're using your phone in.

    I think that if you use the phone continuously it'll get better screen-on time, like watching a movie or playing a non-CPU-intensive game or something like that.

    How are you doing that? What is your system percentage?

    I seem to be doing better than most. I'm getting 5.5 to 7 hours screen time with 18 to 22 hours all together. I'm running with location ON & I watch a lot of YouTube. I have my screen brightness about 50% & it seems to make a difference compared to My usage breakdown was showing screen using 44-46% of my power with brightness at 80%. Now it's 31-33%.

    On a normal workday, I finish with approximately 40% battery and 2 hours of screen time. However, one of my biggest battery users is Beyond Podcast, an app that I use to listen to podcasts frequently (1.5 hours) each day.

    I want proof of multiple 7 hours of SOT examples.. I got 7 hours and like 38 seconds one time but that was with 6% left on the battery and it's only happened once. Certainly not something I'd throw in as an average range.

    for me I average around 4.5 - 5.5, occasionally 6 or just a bit above if I use all the battery. I generally charge around 20% left

    I said 5-5 to 7 but yes when it's getting 7 it's usually down to 5% battery. Last night I checked it & I was at 7h:29m with 1% battery. However today I'm only at 6hrs & only 12% right now.

    The 5.5 to 7 depends on what I'm doing as well. Taking pictures seems to be one of the worst battery drain.

    I'm noticing more fluctuations lately. Yesterday I only got 5.5 hours with 16 hours total. However I had a problem with my service provider & to reboot my phone 6-8 times & remove the battery.

    My best screen-on time was 7:44 minutes with just over 14 hours total. My best overall conditions were on Dec 20th. I got 6.5 hours screen-on time with an amazing 26 hours & 48 minutes overall. The next day I topped 18 hours with 7 hours screen time.

    The bottom line is I get a good 6 hours of screen-on time no matter how I use the phone. Right now I'm just over 5 hours screen / 16.5 & I have 20% battery remaining.

    Today I took my phone off charger at 7:30AM. It's now 10:00PM and I just hit 15% battery. I'm currently at 5 and a half hours screen on time. Little bit of gaming, a good hour of GPS navigation. GPS radio always on, a mix of WiFi and 4G throughout the day. Auto brightness. Lots of email and texting, a bit of Web browsing and downloading apps. I could probably get another hour of Web browsing and email in.

    4.5-5.5 hours typically. SOT will vary greatly depending on what you are doing. 7 hours is certainly possible

    Mine has been hovering around 5 as well. If I'm just browsing forums with dark theme on, I can get on the higher side of 6-7 hours.

    If I'm watching videos or using GPS Nav, it drops down towards the 4-5 range.
