    I suggest that you disable DT Ignite right NOW. It may or may not be the source of your issue, but it is bloatware whose purpose is to load more bloatware. Get rid of it.
    I disabled DT Ignite so we will see how tomorrow goes. I noticed today my phone had fewer wakes from Hangouts by a lot, but Google Wallet jumped up to over 900x and Vzw location services were pinged exactly 199x - what's interesting is that Samsung Push services were also exactly 199x.

    Didn't work. I then yesterday tried a factory reset AND didn't reinstall everything and the wake locks are there. I'm thinking it's a lollipop thing?

    . . . what is DT Ignite actually?
    Here's an excerpt:

    A company called Digital Turbine has a new service – called Ignite — for Android handsets that allows a carrier to install apps on customers’ smartphones “for more advertising revenue” whenever it wishes. In other words, carriers can now push garbage apps onto their users handsets to make a few bucks here and there whether the user wants it or not, and it seems as if the practice is perfectly legal.

    At about 6 pm I'm on 35-45%.wifi is on all day and I get constant notifications (FB what's app, twitter and IG), play music almost the entire day.
    I usually charge by lunch though as I'm a Human Services Professional and never know when my job will send me on a client accompaniment or emergency outreach. I refuse to sit in a welfare office or hospital for hours with nothing to do;especially when my clients have an electronic to occupy their time

    Those numbers aren't huge, check the partial wakelocks also.

    I normally get about 4.5 to 5.5 hours SOT in a day and charge before I go to bed with about 10% left. However...

    2 days ago something magical happened and I don't know how. I got almost 8 hours SOT with heavy usage like always and brightness on auto as always. I was shocked and delighted. Then, this weekend I had work for 10 hours each day so my usage was scattered but still heavy at night when I had time.

    For the first time in my life I actually went to bed without charging my phone. 100% on Saturday morning, 44% on Saturday night, 40% Sunday morning, and now at 12% on Sunday night. SOT has currently passed 7 hours.

    I don't know where this energy boost came from but I love it. I've had my phone for 3 months and have been a heavy user since day 1.

    My battery life is good but I'd like to figure out why this think wakes up so much with the screen off. GSAM used to be good for that type of thing but now you need root for the good stats. Haha

    I have a photo but every time I try to attach via Tapatalk it FCs. I'll upload when I get to a computer. Hours of the screen being off whilst I slept but so many wakes...

    I use my phone ALL DAY from around 7am til around 7pm. I have my GPS on high accuracy, email is set to push, I use Google maps all day as I drive a lot. I listen to Spotify all day, LG Tone Infinim hooked up via bluetooth. Down time in watch a little Time Warner on demand or youtube. And when I get home I have 22% battery life. Yesterday for example I had 7.2 hours of SoT. This phone is the greatest peice of technology ever created. I was at best buy last night and the mobile phone guys were all flashing their new S6's. Apart from the fact that I asked them what size SD card did they have, then proceeded to laugh, I held one of their phones against mine to show that the ENTIRE s6 fits on the actual note 4 screen not including the bezels. Then proceeded to get a phone call mid conversation with them, and took out my spen to take some notes while on the call, then ended the call. Then went to my call logs to show them that the action memo I took while on that call was attached to the call in the call log. Bottom line....Battery, build, features, speed, power. You absolutely CAN NOT do better than the note 4.

    I must be doing something wrong because I am typically down to 50% by lunchtime and I usually can't get home by 6 without charging it.

    There is a way to use the Wakelock Detector on unrooted Note 4, and I verified it works with Lollipop! The description of wakelock detector says: If not rooted, this alternative solution might help: https://docs.google.com/presentation...esent?ueb=true

    That URL is a pwr point that talks you through the process. I did it to my phone and got all kinds of data I'll post eventually. I know this thread has kinda been hijacked from the original purpose, but I think people will like having the link above. I'll look for a different thread or start a new one with specifics on my battery issues in hopes others find it useful.
    Guess I'll be doing this after work today. Gotta keep this thing from waking up for no reason and having background sync in Accounts "off" for all accounts isn't helping.

    I was able to get it to work several times. Here is my recent data. Unfortunately, even after a factory reset and before many apps, my phone is waking constantly. I think it must be some weird glitch. Wish I had root.

    After doing a hard reset after lolipop and AT&T sent out their update. I'm getting 14-17 hours of battery life on a moderate to heavy use on average. Max brightness logged out of FB, no wifi no bluetooth. Before doing a hard reset was terrible battery life barely making it 8-9 hours.

    Wake lock detector.

    Another note, last night I turned off wifi, bt, nfc, location, and put on power savings mode. My battery drained like 2%. I think it's a combo of the battery saver and the location services being off

    Heavy user? Indeed. I have NEVER gotten that kind of SoT with stock battery. Not even new. The best I've had is 12 hours SoT with the Zerolemon 10,000. And that killed the battery. I use extended batteries in all of my phones because I can't deal with 6-8 hours of battery life.

    I am on 4G all day everyday since I have unlimited via Sprint. My wifi is Sprint OTA so I save that for the laptop. That being said, I have not done a factory reset, I'm gearing up for that trauma. Right now I'm using a Hyperion 8000 and can deal with that size and performance. The 10,000 is too much to lug around on a daily basis. 😊

    This is, as previously stated, my 1st Sammy since the Note II. Does the battery still go yellow at 28%?
