    What's the other apps that you installed they are probably the culprit. You can get GS battery it should show you what's draining it.

    Would you be able to show your battery stats via screenshots?

    Most likely it is S-Health. It tends to run in the background gathering data. I run a lot of your apps without issue.

    I use S Health and battery life is still great. I also use battery hogs like Clash of Clans and Plants vs. Zombies 2. I think what works for me is restarting the phone once the battery gets around 5%. I use the battery charging kit so I just swap batteries and keep it moving. These things are like computers. You're not suppose to leave them on 24/7. Over a day and a half with each battery!

    That's funny. It's like a computer, which is why I never turn mine off. With the exception of a few power outages and vacations, my desktop computer has been on 24x7 for years in a row.

    I guess that is funny...I'm laughing with my phone lasting almost two days on one battery. Hope your LeaveItOn24/7 method is working for your Note 4.

    If it was fine until you started using it again...what was the battery level when you started? How long were you using it? What was the level when you finished? What do you have your screen brightness set to?

    The problem is all those apps on your phone. Bad thing about apps is that they are always constantly checking for notifications and updates in the back ground. Some only do it when you are actually on your phone doing something, some do it as much as every 15mins. The more apps you download the more you will find that your battery will drain. Happens with all phones, iPhones, Androids. I'm currently on 3+ days on my current battery on my note 4, that's with moderate use and haven't even turned on UPM. Try disabling some of the bloat ware apps on your phone. This may help.

    Battery life will suck on ANY device if you have a bunch of background apps running. A better title for this thread would be "I have a lot of background apps running, please help me decide what I need to keep running in the background". I never understood why anyone would use their device to play hours and hours worth of games while keeping all their social apps set to "notify", then think their phone is garbage. It's not the device, it's the end-user.

    Has to be your phone. Take a look at my battery and this is with moderate use. Surfed a little on the net, watched a few vids on YouTube, even drew a pic or two on my S note. Plus texting and checking email.

    also, folks need to get a program like start up manager, or others that do the same thing..
    You need to not allow all these programs to automatically start up every time you reboot your phone.
    90% of the programs you listed have no need to automatically start up; when you use them, they will start just fine, but to have all of them running in the background, if you arent using them constantly, on start up, takes alot of battery.
    Also, learn to use Greenify properly, and that makes a big difference in battery life..

    Obviously, there is an issue with the OP's phone, but, in general, my suggestions should help most out alot..

    Apps like that are not necessary to get good battery life with this phone.

    My battery used to suck.. only 3 and half hours of on screen.. now I'm getting that with 50%+..

    Few things I did
    1. Turn off battery %, don't know why but this helps!
    2. Disable all apps you don't use and see which apps are running and stop them
    3. I let my battery completely die and then charged it
    4. Don't use auto brightness, switch it yourself, I usually have mine almost all the way to the left at about 10-20%

    Hope this helps!

    How come nobody uses spare batteries? I never need to do the sneaky look to see how much battery I am using. I could care less, I have two full spares waiting and ready.
