    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.
    I'm the one that had the 12.5 hours SOT, and I assure you, I did NOT have it in any power saving mode. I did, however, have the brightness manually set to about 20%, which is bright enough for me when indoors.

    I keep my screen here and I can't get more than 7 hours SOT. Also apps that run, etc can make a huge difference.

    Are you stock and non rooted?

    Actually, it is bad to drain the battery so much. It can kill the amount of charges remaining.

    Points #3, and #4.
    This stuff is absolute 100% nonsense. You can find so much of this crap all over the internet and then 30 seconds later find the same number of reliable sources that discredit what you just read. Use your phone how you feel comfortable and enjoy the phone. All this stress over battery conditioning and whatnot is straight out of the mind of a 90's kid who had those nickel battery operated remote control trucks.

    No extended battery, stock Lollipop, non-rooted. Probably most important: no Facebook (turned off).

    Shoot I'm at 55% with about 2.5 hours of SOT. Just got about 25-30 minutes of that watching some battle rap on YouTube. That took me from 63% to 56%. But again, I'm pleased with the battery life. I've even stopped backing out of apps and just press the home button when I'm done. Been unplugged since before 6am this morning.

    Well sir you are the only note 4 with 7hrs of SOT with an OEM battery. I don't event think Samsung itself can reproduce that. Its an anomaly

    This thread is starting to get out of control. We don't need accusations and bad language. We need to remember to show each other respect.

    These gentlemen( better for you NexusGirlX) are making such claims with these battery screen shots. Notice in the lollipop battery stats they post it indicates the amount actual time the battery was taken of a charger. I'm running the original unrooted ROM and I dont see that same stat in my version of the lollipop battery stats. Interesting isnt it??? I will illustrate what I mean.

    I think it depends on carrier. I've seen others have the time since charge.

    I get 6.5 to 7 hours SOT all the time, this is the last one I took a screen shot of.

    I didnt want to be mean.. Sorry if i showed you that

    Anyway.. getting 6-7h of SOT in note 4 is normal.. You just need to learn how to manage your app usage.

    I am stock on 5.0.1 with no root running touvhwiz launcher as i found out that nova launcher uses more battery juice (in my old s3 didnt.. bother to install it again ,touchwiz works for me)

    I'm really not worried about this. I just use my phone and I think everyone who posted here should so the same. Stop worrying about battery life.

    That's what I've started doing. If the life isn't bad overall then I don't care about the wakes anymore. Moving on.

    That's it! If it gets you through the day, that's all that matters. I don't have time in my day to use my phone for seven hours. I work full time and take care of my kid at night. Worrying about battery life is the furthest thing in my mind every day. Enjoy your phone.

    One more thing, I post in the Note 4 forum because I love this phone and it's the best phone I have ever used. Forget that it says I am a moderator below my name. Nothing I posted here was meant to be a warning. It just seems silly when people are concerned about getting 7 hours screen time.

    Anyone who wants to continue talking about their battery life can continue doing that in this thread. That's what this thread is about.

    I get around 6-7hours SOT on a normal day, sometimes 8-10hours SOT if I do a lot of web browsing plus watching a few episodes of my series.
