    I have had my galaxy note 4 about a month now and the battery life is decent at best. I have AT&T as my carrier and bought it through amazon. No matter what I try to do, whether its lowering the brightness on screen, clearing the data cache via the recovery menu, disabling certain apps, turning off location services etc. By the way its not rooted no launcher installed, I am on stock touchwiz. It just drains and its frustrating beyond belief because its supposed to last a decent time and it doesn't. I'm an android wiz and I hear of an update that is supposed to fix the battery issue in some units. Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Something may be wrong with your phone. I am getting about 20 -22 hours with 6-7 hours screen on time. That's better than the S5 I had and the G3. Best thing on the market today.

    How are people getting so much screen on time my battery can easily last over 24h but I'm only averaging about 4.5 to 5h screen on time and that moderate use (which I consider instagram, twitter, chrome, clash of clans moderate use)

    Screen on auto brightness and all that good stuff.

    There are lots of threads on this. GSAM should help you figure out whether it's a phone problem or what's running. I have seen a number of other places that there is no update planned and everything I read suggests we don't need one. My battery life is great as long as I don't use Words with Friends a lot.

    I can get all day with moderate use. As much as I am liking this model my Note3 battery life was better. I just am dealing with it. I do charge every night. Am impressed with how quick

    I never have to worry about battery, as I always have a spare.

    I haven'ad had any battery issues since I had mine on AT&T Oct 16th. Heavy use I get a full day about 15-17 hours on average. Try to replace the phone or get a new battery, they run about $30 give or take for a Note 4.

    I mean I charge it up and already had my phone exchanged once new battery and all...I only get roughly 8 hours of usage on a single charge with light usage considering I work and don't look at my phone constantly...the only time it's effective is in ultra power save mode...its frustrating! ...

    Hmm, I have the same problem, my 4 year old note 2 got far better battery life. My battery usage on my new note 4 looks about like yours. Android OS and Android System are the main source of battery usage for me, slightly higher percentages than yours (usually about 35-40% combined). I'd sure love to know why this is happening or what we can do (if anything) about this. Thanks for posting your info.

    Oh yeah and......

    Not all are bad in regards to battery life, have you had any updates? I recieved one immediately upon first boot (in Scotland).

    Factory reset perhaps although many want to avoid and this might not cure.

    Something is up as Android system is 9% and system Ui is 6% on mine at present.

    OP, Android system can be dozens of things. I noticed that your awake time is almost double your screen on time. Check the sync settings on all of your accounts. Check notification settings as well for apps that you know that are set to update at intervals such as email, weather and social media apps. Ideally, your awake time should be very close to your screen on time.

    12 hours and only 34% usage? What was your screen on time for those 12 hours? I do about the same and I'm only getting about 5h screen on time total after about 24h of usage.
