    3.5 SOT was yesterday and I had 21% left which may go more than 4h SOT, right? Now I fixed some things and I listened some music, but I have some apps that are checking my GPS location every 15 minutes, I didn't do anything, today I have 4 hours and 37min with 18% left so I think that's okay?
    Yup, sounds pretty good to me and what I average even with screen set to auto-brightness and a bunch of stuff disabled (ex. location set to power saving, one GMail account syncing e-mail only and a BeWeather widget syncing every three hours).

    Too much information with regard to battery can be a bother. Getting great battery life but not knowing what keeps waking my phone (non-root WLD method not successful for me) is bugging me. Lol

    My Note 4 is a 3-4 weeks old... rooted, stock rom to uninstall "bloatware" and a couple of minor mods. Example of how my battery performs, today I left home with 100% battery made a few calls lasting around 15 mins in total. Arived at my first job and used a radio station over the net for about 2 hours. Left that job and used tomtom go for about an hour to arive at my next job and used the radio again for about an hour. Used the net to search for products to buy for tomorrow's job and pick up locally. This took about 30mins searching the net. Drove home and tethered my phone to my laptop for an hour or so as I'm actually away on location and not at home to use WiFi. And now responding to this and I have 54% battery... I am more than impressed with note 4 battery life.

    My battery sucks since the lollipop update and since it's a Verizon phone that means it will take forever to get 5.1

    11 hours of screen on time and still have 51% battery left? Must be using an extended battery (ex. ZeroLemon 10,000mAh?). There's no way that's possible with the stock 3200mAh battery.

    My Verizon Note 4 is on Lollipop and I'm using the stock battery. I got this a couple weeks ago with light to moderate usage:

    Wow, impressive then! Is your screen brightness turned all the way down?

    I too can get over 5 hrs OST but only get less then ten hours standby. I doubt that people who are getting 5+ hrs are getting a full day of standby. I could do the same on KitKat as well but get less than a day with 5+ hrs.
    I get over 6 hours of SoT with 26 hours of total use

    Only one time when I first got my phone, was I able to get over 5 hrs with about 23hrs standby. Mostly, I average 2-3 with 1-2 days standby.

    Just now with 1 day, 9 hrs standby, I have 2 hrs 22 minutes screen time and 7 % left on the battery. This is average for my uses and I am extremely happy with it.

    I had a Nexus 4 that I could never get more than an hour of screen time on with 1 day standby. Everyone's usage is different.

    I really have no idea how some of you do it. I'm at 75% battery right now, with 30 min of SOT. Screen is 4th on the list, and first is Google Play Services, then Android System and then Android OS. So no "real apps." I had MUCH better battery life on my Note 2. I had fantastic battery life on my Nokia 1520 (but that was a beast of a battery and lower specs, so it's not comparable). But battery life wise, I'm not so happy with the Note 4. I've had multiple ROMs and I've disabled a ton of apps and services... Still ... 25% battery per 30 min. of SOT is TERRIBLE.

    Isn't it bad to have battery @ 1%?
    Not on todays batteries. I've used my phone till it shut off, put a new battery in it, recharged the old one and life continues. No damage to the battery if you use it till it shuts down.
    Actually, it is bad to drain the battery so much. It can kill the amount of charges remaining.

    That's the way I have always used my phones and have never had to replace a battery or even have it degrade in any way. I'll just keep using my phone the way I always have because it works for me.

    Those battery guides say one thing, my experience shows otherwise.

    Only turned off bloatware that's it. It is possible. I'm not the only one. Another poster just posted an even better battery life than mines in this thread. Check it out.

    Something strange going on with my battery lately. I am not getting great battery life like I was. Something is running or I have something set wrong. Also lately I have been getting popups. Maybe a bad app.

    the 3200 mah battery doesn't have the juice for 10-12 hours screentime. Not unless it is in Ultra Power Saving or something like that.
