    It could be GSam causing the drain for those who are getting poor battery performance. According to play store reviews, many are having drain issues.

    Is it normal to wake up, take phone off charger (no apps open), get showered and dressed (maybe 25 min) go downstairs to car and be down to 95% already?

    Battery drain has been a big issue for me, I did a factory reset 3 weeks ago, didn't help.

    I'd be all up on this phone if I could guarantee your battery life. I've been watching this thread cause I returned three S6 phones, and I just don't know if I feel confident in the note 5 battery life. I'm jealous of 2 hours at 100%!

    I've seen your battery life. I'm on sprint. Not sure it's carrier dependent. But it's the people that have drain that make me second guess the phone.

    As I posted before gsam was giving me battery drain. After removing the phone battery is great. Just like the other posters I can be at 100% for 2 hours.

    You need to check the apps your using to see if they're causing the battery drain.

    I never used GSam heard it's a battery killer by lots in XDA, so i never had to use that app.

    Good choice you don't need it and it does impact battery life.
    You also have very good battery life like me and very little drain.

    On a side note how it's your reception?
    I have AT&T as you do and my signal is almost always low three bars max and I thankfully I still have good battery life. Curious, what the battery life would be like if I had 5 bars or is that even possible on AT&T LTE.

    Hmmm, I'm in NYC and the only time I see 5 bars is when it's not really on LTE. I realized this when I did a speed test and my speed is faster at 3 bars than 5. So I downloaded an app call LTE discovery and it shows that the LTE sign is on but the 5 bars are coming from GSM. That explained the lower speed.

    I guess Wyoming is a better state for att

    Does Gsam really have that much of an impact? Today's stats show me at Gsam only using 0.2 percent. Would that be reflected in the Android System percentage at all?

    The discrepancy in on-screen time in the pics I posted a few posts ago from yesterday must be from a restart because my on-screen time today in Gsam and in the main battery stats are basically the same. 47 minutes or so and I'm at 60 percent battery left after being off the charger for about 10.5 hours. Not bad hours-wise but again, barely any screen time or not nearly as much as everyone else's stats lend me to believe I should be getting.

    Yes, gsam did have a very bad impact on my battery.

    As for the battery life your getting it is very bad for the Note 5. You need to disable everything and see how the battery life is without any apps draining.

    Then comes the question on the reception your getting? That would cause a big drain.

    Interesting. I have Package Disabler and have most things disabled. All the Knox stuff and ANT stuff, most of the extra Google stuff, too.

    Reception is good. Nothing amazing. 3-4 bars of 4g on Sprint when I'm at home with wifi. Only time reception might dip are on my drive to and from work. It's about a half hour drive.

    Maybe something you deactivated with Package Disabler is having a negative impact?
    I was at 6 hours SOT after 16 hours off charger yesterday before I hit 15% remaining.
    Took the boy to see Santa so I tossed it on the charger just to be sure I had more than enough juice for any photo ops that may come.

    Maybe if you add what you got deactivated might help him and what provider your phone is, just a thought.
