    turn off the LED notification? Anyone know where this little setting has moved to? I can't seem to find it. Previously, I had the blinking notification turned off, but it is just on all the time now.

    I think I give up, what is the best way to do a total reset? Save anything, or just try some backup from the goog?

    IMHO, a clean and Painful Factory reset is best. because it is sometimes the apps data backups from a bad app could cause the issues to return. I would still backup Photos and Songs, but nothing more, and just build everything from scratch. (Good Luck)

    TIP: take screen shots of how you like things arranged (On your home screen, and even on some apps settings, etc..) so that is would be easier to put things back the way they were.

    Thanks, but I've checked that one and it is OFF, all settings there and even the setting within for the LED notification was off.. And yet, the little blue and I think a lighter color LED go off all the time

    Hmmm try checking and Unchecking the one under settings > display and wallpaper > LED indicator (that is the other place that I saw LED related stuff)
    Personally I don't mind the blue light. But it is strange that these options are unchecked even on mine and it still blinks

    So, it IS odd.. for example, neither in the Settings>Accessibility>Notification reminder nor in the settings > display and wallpaper > LED indicator was it turned on.. showed off in BOTH places.

    In the Settings>Accessibility>Notification are, I simply turned it to ON at the top, but UNCHECKED all applications. It still blinks but my battery life has INCREASED! Not really sure what/why/how, I'll continue to track.

    Tomorrow, I'll try to turn it OFF again and see if it finally shuts off completely (hoping turning ON then OFF turns it OFF OFF) and see if the battery life sticks

    Then, over the WE i'll probably have to do the do and do a full rest.

    The LED notification light will not chew the battery to the extent you described. Go for a factory reset. It should clear the issue.

    So, I was JUST coming back to give everyone an update on this.

    Yesterday at about 10:15 PST I had 71% battery life left, after having taken it off the charger at 05:00 PST Tuesday morning.

    The ONLY thing I have done is as I described, I turned ON the notifications in the Settings>Accessibility>Notification area. It appears that notification light is function as it was before, blinking when there is say new messages, emails, etc., even though previously it was doing this and the notification settings were turned OFF. So, it's ON now and still doing the blinking (and I should say even though I actually UNCHECKED ALL on the applications list, so technically it should NOT be doing notifications at all)

    Well, that was 23:30 HOURS AGO, and I still have 32% battery life. Power savings says it should run another 8:00 hours, which would put the run time at 36 hours easy, and that is after having had it run down to 70% yesterday morning in 5 hours, so I think starting at 100% it should now run even better.

    This is the ONLY thing I did to the device and usage patterns, locations are the same (home, work, 3rd place), and usage is probably higher actually since I used GPS and had to connect to several new WIFI yesterday.

    So, I really think SOMETHING is going on there. Another question for the group, when YOU go into that area of accessbility>notifications and then click on the LED NOTIFICATIONS button, does it take a LONG time to get to that final page? For me, after I click on the NOTIFICATION REMINDER selection, the screen goes black and it takes about 5-7 seconds to get to the actual LED notifications page?

    Now, I haven't turned it off yet again, which I will try next, but if ANYONE is having battery problems currently, maybe try there first. See if it is ON, if it is OFF turn it ON..maybe switch back and forth. This really has dramatically changed the experience for my unit at least.

    Oh, one more question. Is there someplace where it now say how long it has been running, or does one just have to do the math from the DATE/TIME on the left side of the graph to NOW?

    I hate to be one of those to complain about minor things guys, but I find losing the off charger time and Screen On Time to be annoying. Seems like simple things to include.

    First world problems I suppose.

    Also lost is most of the lock screen info. No Pedometer count, no weather, no owner info etc....just notifications and time. Not a fan.

    Err... Why can't we do the app pinning thing? And the priority interruptions? Do not disturb isn't the same thing...
    The app "Agent" by egomotion is a good work around for the interruptions.

    The Screen on time is still there, just click on the screen usage under the battery usage graph. Also the owner info still shows on mine. I wonder if you have sensitive info blocked for your lock screen (that can be adjusted under settings>sounds and notification>while locked).

    I think if you look at Cell Standby time it should give you the closest approximation of ON time since OFF charger. At least if one doesn't turn the cell radio on or off

    Overnight update, since post #86..I've never had the projected standby time go UP..this went from 3 DAYS to 4 DAYS this morning now after 14 hours off the charger (based on cell standby time)

    Only have 40 min screen time though, and android system is 58 min.

    One thing i have noticed since installing this update is that my gesture to expand notifications in nova no longer works, other than that it looks and performs great so far!
    There is a setting in accessibility for that. You have to go to settings, accessibility, then at the bottom you'll see services. Turn Nova on.

    I love the update. It feels like I have a new phone. I have Sprint Note 4. No complaints, and my battery definitely lasts longer. 20 % more battery left after same use at work for 10 hours.

    Thanks for the info. I found the screen on time and I checked the sensitive info, it's set to allow all. My lock screen doesn't show pedometer info, weather or owner data. Just notifications, a small clock and emergency phone and cam at the bottom. It's really not that big of a deal I guess. I just got used to seeing those things.

    This method didn't improve my battery, actually it may have made it less. You may have some other setting that this is working along side with. I may have to do a Factory reset anyway since 5.1 may be on the way.
