    For those with problems with cell standby: that is a bug with Android where you get penalized by having both wifi and data on. When not in use, turn wifi off. I like Tasker because it does it for me automatically. I no longer have cell standby as number 1

    This sounds unlikely. My cell standby is 2% and I always keep Wifi on. Wifi radios use he tiniest amount of power. Anandtech has mentioned this over and over in battery life articles. Turning Wifi off isn't going to reduce cell mobile data radio time. I never have turned wifi off on any of my phones, and I have no issues with battery life.

    I did just see THIS over on Android Police. Maybe this is the culprit?.

    Id say this is awesome battery life. Cell standby is a little high but other then that this is great. I audio think that cell standby will fix it self after using the phone some more. Only second day with the phone. Tmobile note 5 32gb

    I wanted to ask everyone one question. Do you have Google Now activated ? Set up? I had mine off before now I activated even though I do not use it very often apart from asking a few things. I noticed that Google Services has gone up as number 1 power consumption. Any advise?

    Screen on time is great. Been nailing it hard the last two days and the battery life is impressive.

    These were my stats before going to bed last night, on its first full charge. Verizon model. I was blown away by the SOT!

    This was mixed usage of having brightness on auto, or set manually to 50%.

    Lots of Facebook, Twitter, and Feedly browsing, a little YouTube, several pictures... basic everyday usage.

    If it can reproduce numbers like that outside of my house, I'll be truly in love!

    I do have Google Now activated. I actually use it a lot to catch up with different things. Once you use it and start searching, it's pretty intuitive in finding different stories and other things you might be interested in. Understandably, it's not for everyone, but I get a lot of use out of it. It really doesn't make that much of a difference in my battery, as I am always on my phone looking up something in some way.

    Looks like the battery life is just as good as my Note Edge, this was the second day of being charged.

    You should be getting way better battery life than that, my S6 will get over 4 hours of screen on time on a daily basis.

    Do you have Google Location History enabled or Active WiFi Scanning?

    Didn't mean to check , 'thanks'. Anywho, try installing GSam Battery Monitor and it will tell you what apps are Draining your battery.

    Your battery here is acceptable. I'm not getting as much as I'd expect. I must have something turned on wrong. Look at my cell standby.

    Yeah... the phone is a week old! My wife's edge+ has a similar issue with the cell standby. I have the advanced calling on but she does not (this was suggested awhile ago as the issue) so I don't think that's it

    I've been an an active reader of the AC/forum for a few years but I decided to make an account just to share my battery life experience with my note 5. I'm on verizon. This is my first full battery cycle. Some info about my usage: I never used airplane mode. I only used power saver (not ultra power saver, mind you) while sleeping. I slept for 8.5 hours and only lost 5%.,which is outstanding. I was on wifi for about 90% of my day. About 6 hours of reading, a couple hours of gaming and a couple hours of browsing. Maybe half an hour of streaming YouTube. Also a lot of messaging, using both standard texts and hangouts. I'm very curious to see how it holds up at work when I'm constantly using it for email, texts, calls, calendar and notes. I'll repost my stats after my first full day at work!

    Edit: location on, sync on, brightness set at midrange with auto on.

    Seeing that you had the phone over a week and you are having the same issues as your wife, in this case a factory rest might help you finding the problem, I hate doing factory rest my self, sometime a app will make the phone act that way. One thing you can try, see what app that you and your wife have that is the same, once you find it try to remove it and see if that helps. if not hate to say it, factory reset might be the only way to find the problem that you are having.

    I have 53% battery - 2 hours on screen time - 17 hours since full charge. Would you call that good battery life?

    (I just came from an iPhone so I can only compare to that)

    I would say that's pretty good, let me take a guess, you like to close out of all your apps when you are done.

    I haven't been able to get a clear picture of battery life for me because I've been at work the last two nights and I get abysmal cell service there.
    So far this morning I'm at 86% and have an hour of SOT with lots of YouTube, games, emails, texting, etc.
    If I keep that pace up I'm well over 5 hours of SOT (which I consider amazing for my use).

    Yeah I might try. I've had the issue on 2 Note 4's both with many resets. I must have something synching.

    Anyone heard of any issues having multiple Google accounts sync? I have my personal and google apps for business accounts syncing, maybe something is wrong with having 2 sync?
