    My battery Sucks! Wake up at 7 and by noon I get the dreaded beeping sound... What apps should I disable?
    The one that are using the most battery. Go to your battery settings and see what is using battery. That's crazy unless you are streaming movies the entire time. I get from 6am to 10pm if I really need it with about 4 to 5 hours screen time depending on what I do during the day.

    Alright guys, that's the list. There may be some apps you don't know, I am living in Germany and the pre-installed apps vary from country to country.

    Okay, something like this is what I'm looking for, especially with screenshots posted for people like me that at times cannot understand written words for Android. Would be great to see similar disabled apps for VzW users here in the USA.

    Thanks for posting yours Lukas Wilk!

    With the apps turned off as shown in my previous post, here was my battery usage this past Saturday to Sunday. I should note that I am not a heavy user, just a few phone calls, 3 email accounts (2 of those set to push), and some texting. Also, I played a little Euchre as well. I had GPS on high accuracy, and the screen turned on at about 20% brightness almost the entire time, except when I was asleep.

    Back to the OPs question:
    I have a Note 4
    My wife has a S6
    My Air Force son the Turbo.
    They all love their phones and my son REALLY needs the battery time.
    I've used each of their phones and I would still buy another Note 4 tomorrow if something happened to mine. JMPO...

    I'm confused... When I turn off items like Facebook, the whole app disappears... So I can't use it anymore?

    If you are going to carry a phone with a big screen why not carry the Note. Even if you don't use everything it does all the time at least you have the ability if you want it. No other phone does what the Note can do.

    If you want a smaller phone then that's a whole different story. Lots of good phones to choose from.

    I would say yes, that it is still definitely worth it. I would choose the Note 4 over the S6 only because the the Note 4 supports SD cards still.

    I actually bought the S6 edge from Verizon. At first I originally had the note 4 gave it to my wife and got the s6 edge. The first day battery life was great. I was getting battery life like the note 4 almost. But then I started to notice small hiccups when typing on the keyboard. The keyboard lags a tad bit. When I was charging my phone it got really hot. Hot enough to make your Palm red. I actually miss the note 4 with the screen size and the expandable memory. I gave up the S6 because I'm not will to buy all new accessories for it. So back to my note 4 and here I stay.

    I bought a Note 4 about a month ago after getting some hands-on time with it and the S6. It has been fantastic. The screen is incredible and the battery life is outstanding...but I had no idea how outstanding until today.

    I was at a client location all day in a meeting today. I had my laptop, but could not connect to the client's network, so I put my N4 in hotspot mode and used it to VPN my laptop into my company network. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring a charger. I didn't think it would make it through the day, especially since I used the N4 pretty much non-stop on the 90 minute train trip to that location. It not only lasted through the entire day as a hotspot, I still had about 35% battery left when I got home after the return trip on the train.

    It is a beast.

    I am too considering the Note 4 even after all this time. Just seems to suit my needs better. What do you think even now? I have the M8 which I like but wanted to do bit more as far as battery, multitasking and camera.
