    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.
    When you did the factory reset did you install any apps after? Like gsam.

    First one was agreeing with you on the great battery life. Second one was an error. Not really sure. How or why the pictures came in separate.

    First full day with mine. Not quite on par with my Droid Turbo, but it's a smaller battery and a bigger screen so that's to be expected.

    What's was the battery life like with the turbo? Looks like your note 5 is doing very good battery wise.

    I once pushed my turbo to 39 hours off the charger with 9 hours screen time. Still had 10% left so I could have made 10 hours. That was on kit Kat, lollipop was a touch worse.

    The turbo was a beast in the battery department, and the Moto features were nice. However, so far I find the note to have a better screen, better sound, less lag, and a faaaaaaar superior camera.

    7% is excellent. I shut off my phone because I usually lose about 12%. My old razr maxx hd lost 2% a night. Same exact setup.
    What the hell man... I have my g3 for about 12 hours in stand-by and lose nothing

    I don't know what stand by is for you. For me I am getting 5 pushed email accounts, 5 weather apps updating between every 15 minutes or once an hour, and Tapatalk pushing replies all night long. Any of them might cause led notifications. I doubt you can get 12 hours of all that for zero electricity but razr maxx hd could do it on 2%-5% of battery.

    Yes i would know i had that phone , but start using it and it will drain 10x more then the Note 5 , LG3 only standby is good but you can't ever get 5 to 6 , 7, 8 hrs SOT, so i pass it on the LG 3 to my daughter last year, it's a nice phone but eats way to much battery once you use it, nothing compared to Note 5 tho which will last way way longer.

    Why would you need 5 weather apps ? And update every 15 min ? And 5 emails ? Ok then.... It's true i've didn't had anything to sync in background, no push no nothing

    How much percentage of battery life is "Android System" using with those who are getting the greatest battery life?

    Consistently seeing my "Android System" dwarfing everything else in GSam. Which I expect, but maybe not to that degree. Number is consistently over 25%. Is that about right? I have 19 hours since last charge but I took a 4 hour nap and slept overnight too. Not sure what the deal is. I always have wifi on when I'm at home. Off when driving. Live in a generally good signal area. I have plenty of access to chargers but I just figure given my usage, the battery should last much longer and I'm wondering if anything is wrong.

    Why does Gsam and the stock battery Manger have different screen times and off charger times?

    I'm not familiar with gsam app, I downloaded it and deleted it in two days. The first day I Installed it, I went to sleep it lost 12% over night and the second day i had another battery drain over night. After removing the app the battery returned to normal. Not really sure why the app drained so much battery for me.
    Anyway, just wondering why the difference with the app.

    Accuweather syncs with gear 2. Beweather for widget on home page. Amber weather widget on pqge 2 (trying itnout because beweather is no longer serviced and loses sync sometimes. Trouble is amber weather is too slow to change location as I travel. I also run NECN, Weatherbug, and a local news station in the background because I like to double check. I like reading about the weather. All the other stuff is work related except gmail. I buy top quality smartphonss so they can handle high demand. I plug in in my car and at home so seldom have battery get too low. I just don't like charging li ion batteries unattended and I do not want phone calls when asleep so turning off phone at bedtime works best for me. I do leave my backup razr maxx hd running all night with all notifications shut off so I can rapidly check email when I wake up. Phone calls can wait.

    Mind you I do not have a note 5. I just like reading about note 5 for when I get one if prices get low enough.
