    My wife is a lighter user. When she got home from work the first day of having her note 4, she had 86%!

    With light-moderate use, I got 2 1/2 days. With moderate-heavy use, i got like 1 1/2 - 2 days. With heavy use, I got a little over a day. I bet if you just casually check the phone, you could easily get 3 days.

    NOTE: I disabled most of the bloatware, turned off most of the sound options, and sometimes used the power-saving options.

    Is it weird thatt at 100 percent my phone goes from full charge to 96% in 6 hours of idle time. Is my battery mess up on my note 4 or it a normal thing with the note
    That less than 1% an hour, seems pretty good.

    I've posted this on another thread but here's a few things I did that have given me great battery life (much better than my GS4; I rarely get below 50% battery after a typical day of use):

    - Under More Networks > Mobile Networks > set preferred network mode to LTE/CDMA (it's set to global by default)
    - Under Location > Mode > set to to power saving instead of high accuracy

    I also use Snapdragon Battery Guru. I do not use Samsung's "Power Saving Mode" (I don't want my performance to throttle down ever) and I keep my GPS, location, and bluetooth on all the time.

    Do you mean how did I get this battery information, or are you asking how was I able to achieve that performance?

    Assuming it's the latter, I'm not really sure, honestly. I keep my screen on auto brightness set at about 70%. I don't keep many apps open at any given time (old habit I developed while on an iPhone), and since I'm on unlimited data through VZW, I don't use wireless all that often and keep it turned off. Other than that, I just use the device normally, leaving everything stock.

    Do you know difference between GPS only and Power saving? As I typed that I realized I should first RTFM. It said nothing. Then I Googled the string below and found a bunch of stuff. I am doing as you suggest but also wonder if you know how much difference keeping off GPS makes these days? It makes sense to me but reading 5 minutes of results suggests some debate about it. In fact, I previously had mine on GPS only because some other thread suggested it. Power saving seems better at least for now. I don't know GSAM well enough yet to test each one...

    I have had my phone for not even 24 hrs. Set it up up last night and have been off charge for 2.5 hrs and I am at 96% with moderate use. On wifi most of the time but this is looking good so far. I am impressed with fast charging.

    That's amazing battery life. I have AT&T... I'm not sure if it has to do with the carrier or not and the additional stuff they put on it. But my friend who has the Note Edge (weaker battery) but the exact same specs as the N4. He uses pandora, bluetooth, wifi, sync for about 8 hrs straight, text, talk, social media... and at the end of the day still have 50% left. That's heavy usage for me. And he says that's light to medium for him. If I can get that I'd be happy. But he has T-Mobile.

    I called AT&T they were no help.

    I called Samsung and they said turn off location service while location service (in the N4) says that it takes up minimal battery.

    I went to Android hoping to get better software usage and battery life. My battery seems like it's dropping 1% every few minutes. But the other day I did get a 3 hours of pandora with a 9% drop. That made me pretty happy. But once I start using the screen more often it just drops.

    Has any one got your Note 4 down to 1% battery life remaining to see how long it lasts on 1%?

    I have read that once in a while you should let the battery drain down ALL THE WAY to re caliber the battery memory.

    I had mine down to 1% the other day and it lasted like 2 seconds before shutting down...my phone screen was on @ that time!

    i just don't understand how you're getting battery life like that. i truly don't,. i can't get that for the life of me.
    People who are getting 21hrs or 24hrs battery life are the ones who let their phone stay on standby overnight to get more hours built up on their battery stats. The other option is they have am extended battery. With light usage you can probably get 15hrs at most or a little more.

    This is an actual percentage I got from my note 4. I unplugged my phone at 6am and this what I got from none stop usage. Anyone getting more than this is probably blowing smoke.

    To drop 1% in half an hr is normal.
    But with you pic up here, I see you used ur phone heavily for calling, hence the drop to 86% so fast!

    This is best of the best I have got with my Verizon Note 4...

    Mostly ideal...But i do have all Location services enabled!

    On a moderate to heavy use day too, I can go full 24hrs without charge!
