    Hey guys

    OK so I got my note 4 yesterday and I charged it to 100 percent and used it a bit not much and I went to sleep. I checked it in the middle of the night and the battery was draining and Cell Standby and phone idle were the main culprits

    When I wokeup in the morning the battery was at 33% (so i had a 63
    % drain). While the Cell standby took 27% of the drain and idle and android OS took 16 %.

    Can u please tell me what might be causing the problem? And how can I tackle the cell standby problem.

    I live in Stockholm, Sweden and I'm using tele2 carrier sim and my phone has 4 network options

    1) LTE/CDMA/GSM (Auto connect)
    2) CDMA/GSM (Auto connect)
    3) CDMA only
    4) GSM only

    Other information:
    My network is set on the first option (LTE/CDMA/GSM) and right now I have not used the phone outside my home so currently on the first network option I'm getting 3 bars of the network out of 4.

    If I click on any of the other 3 network options (CDMA/GSM, CDMA only, GSM only) the network bar becomes full 4 out of 4 but then when I click on the first option (LTE/CDMA/GSM) the network bars becomes 3.

    The network was set to first option throughout the night and the call standby shows 0% time without the signal.

    Please tell me what should I do. I have tried to provide all the information, I knew. If u need any other information plz let me know. The battery is now at 21% with 19 hrs on battery. I have hardly use the mobile fr half n hour n fr the rest of the time the mobile was just idle n screen was off with no background apps running and only WiFi on.

    Should I choose any other network option rather then the first one? I use 4G when I'm outside home because I use Internet a lot. So plz help me

    Thanks

    The screen shot was taken a bit later that's why the cell standby shows 24 instead of 27. Also it shows screen.

    Are you sending out tons of emails or is Gmail syncing constantly? I've never seen Gmail be the #1 battery hog.

    only thing that should be using battery over 20% is

    screen around 20%
    android system 20-22%

    My Andoid OS uses on average about 12-13%

    with cell standby about 8%

    anymore than that and there is something eating your battery. do you have sync on? switch that off.

    Only 5 Hours? WOW, and they said the Note 4 was going to be the best phone. Can't even last a whole day. This is not just your model. A few friends of mine actually spent the high dollar for there note 4 and returned it within a week when the Note 4 couldn't last at least 12 hours, lag issues (Verizon). They are sticking with there HTC M8.

    If you are seriously asking this I am not sure 50 pages of stuff there will help...Google XDA and it'll pop right up. There are 4 other threads here. I am in a rush but just a glance at that radio thing explains a lot...I'm not picking on you...just read this stuff...there's a ton of info

    Where is xda forum? Can u post the link

    My battery consumption is a bit higher than it was on my Note 3's...but in all fairness, I had many more things disabled and more permissions removed on the Note 3's.

    It has taken me more time to understand how to remove certain permissions on some apps on 4.4.4, using a different permissions app than on 4.4.2. I have more work to do, but IMO, I'll get to the same or better battery life as my Note 3's, once I've got a handle on which apps I can remove which permissions from.

    It's a work in progress, but I go all day with a lot of use on phone, screen, SMS and data. I haven't yet found stock on the 2nd battery/ charger combo...but haven't yet found myself out of battery, or even close by day's end.

    I get about 1.7-2% battery drain/ hour on average...and sometimes higher, but that's the short of it, according to GSAM.

    I'm LTE disabled, running on 4G. That saves a pile of drain and for those of you who don't know, or just don't believe...just do some real life testing with LTE disabled and watch your battery life go up dramatically. Then ask yourself what prefer more...LTE or battery life.

    There is little bit of worry on this front. The battery drains but not so bad.
