    Hi there, first time posting here so bare with me. Anyways, I was just wondering if something's a bit off with my battery? Got it a month ago, and some "sample" units in samsung stores for the note 5 display longer standby times and if u turn on ultra power saving mode, ti shows that there's more than a day left for the battery at around 65, 70% whereas my phone only shows 23 hrs 30 mns on 100%. Is there something up? Would "recalibrating" the battery work?

    Can you show us some screenshots of the battery stats, please?

    Would these suffice? Thanks for the reply btw. Just currently worried because the mobile carriers in my country have a reputation for replacing and tampering with the phones they give out so im just worried that maybe they did the same to my note 5.

    My biggest issue is 4G. I have to manually disable. Where I stay my signal is at 1-2 bars often times jumps to H. So if I leave it like that it goes down so fast: Stats of right now: Off battery 6 hours 35 mins. SOT time 2 hours 48 mins. Biggest drain screen. WTF? I neve manage 4 hours of SOT unless I watch youtube or plex on wifi.

    You just aren't going to have good signal or good battery. It looks like the only way you can is with a type of booster that connects to your WiFi. You might can buy those that work for any carrier, but thru will be a few hundred dollars.

    T-mobile isn't so hot in my area. We can't really decide what to do. I'm one of the odd people that like Samsung's Touch Wiz I guess. . . . I haven't really had any other smartphone (the HTC hero long ago, but I barely remember it). So I'm nervous to switch to Motorola. . . But gosh this S6 just doesn't last as long as I'd expect from a new phone. I haven't taken any of them back (for the note 5 potentially) because we were considering the swap to Verizon. So I only wanted to return once. And I also have only known Sprint (17+ years) so to go to Verizon and Motorola is all out of my comfort zone. I'm pretty cranky with Samsung though and this crap battery life. And I'm just not sure I can "trust" that the note 5 will get enough to make it worth doing the exchange
    The S6 and the Note 5, are completely different when it comes to battery life. I had the S6 Edge. Also Notes have always had better battery life than the S lines.

    What it says about Ultra Power Saving time?

    No, that number is ever changing. It is an estimate based on how you have used your phone in the last 7 days and it is calculated also on how you are currently using your phone.

    Thanks! We returned the S6 phones and rolled everything back to our old phones. I was unable to decide for sure if the note 5 would actually suffice in terms of battery. Not sure what we will do next

    Looking for a little help with my battery usage. I've had my Note 5 for almost a week now and Google Play Services is always a top consumer of my battery. Are there any suggestions on what I can do to fix this?

    Also, I know that the "Cell Standby" usage is an issue but is the current solution to run 100% LTE?

    Thanks for the help!

    Maybe I'm missing something, your phone has been unplugged for over 20 and a half hours and you've only used 42% of your battery, and you think there's a problem?

    My screen time is between 3 to 5 hours depending on my day.

    My questions come from that as my usage/screen time increases so does my Google Play Services usage percentage leading to me to believe that there's a setting that I missed that's causing the high usage.

    Don't get me wrong, I think that what I've been getting for battery life is pretty good but if there is something that I can do to make it better, I'm going to try to do so.

    Hi. So I've been using Note5 international unlocked version for about 2 weeks now. Decided to share battery stats with you guys. What do you guys think? I've been looking at the posts on this thread and this seems a bit above average, but I can see some people getting a full day and a half with their phones on a single charge!

    Samsung has a new update. I'm not sure when will it arrive on other release because mine is the international release with dual sim slots.

    In general you should avoid getting much below 40. There's a large post on AC explaining the details about why not to always drain it so low

    Well that actually isn't true. That might be happening for you, but without your info, no one knows why. It doesn't happen for others.
    OK that was clearly my experience with an unlocked sm-n920g (Korean international) on MetroPCS (tmobile network). That phone was defective. I sent that phone in, got a refund, and now have a unlocked sm-n920t (usa tmobile).
    I'll have to get back to ya'll when my battery is low.

    I have been getting terrible standby drain at night. There should be no reason for battery drain at night because I'm asleep and so is the phone. Note the steep slope from about 2 AM onwards. Is there any fix for this? Google play did not do any app update last night

    Same here. I had my 31% last night and it dropped to 14%. When I fully charge my battery I get 12 hrs remaining in battery usage estimate.

    I tried a factory reset and nothing fixed the drain.
