    That's over 10 hours with the screen on more than 1/3 of the time. Not too bad. What's bad is that you'll letting the battery go below 40% (WAY below, according to the graph). Unless you own a lithium battery company, you shouldn't be doing that - it kills the battery's lifetime. (See Battery University - How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries.) At least they're not too expensive - under $10, and you just pop the back cover off to replace it.

    If you really need more time between charges than 60% of capacity gives you, buy a spare battery and a charger that can charge the battery outside the phone. (Anker - see Amazon - has 2 batteries and a charger for about $20.)

    Constant charges can kill battery too. Got an 13000 mah anker battery. Verizon sells extra battery for note 4 for 29.99. Where u see 10.

    I always charge when it's under 10% and 5 hours of screen time is considered standard / good

    I charge mine almost always after it is below 15% - 10% and have done this with every smartphone I've had. Never had an issue.

    Same here. Everyone uses different "sources" and "stats" to prove completely different "facts" about Lithium batteries. I will forever hate Ni-Cad batteries for ruining everyone when it comes to batteries. Use the thing how you want and if the battery dies, get a new one for $30. It's pointless to sit and fear a certain % mark on battery life when we're all going to trade in our phones before any of those perceived ill effects would take effect anyway.
