    It just seemed like a lot and wasn't sure you were getting the features of the Note with that much customization. T-Mobile isn't as bad but they do have their share of bloatware.

    Yeah if it was a international Note 5 it has none of those bloatwares i mentioned, and yes T-Mobile has less bloatware, but nothing like AT&T and Verizon, all the bloatware i disabled doesn't effect the Note 5 functions at all, i just wish we were able to uninstall them but only have the option to disable them, which truly is dumb from our provider's, if AT&T Note 5 was able to be rooted and be able to flash roms i would definitely remove those bloatwares i disabled since it's just junk , i am a Developer in XDA i make Roms and all developers that make roms usually removes all those bloatwares, if someone wanted some of them you could just install them from Playstore.

    I have a Note 5 on AT&T. I believe since the last update back in October, I have noticed GPSD has been showing up in my battery usage with 10% or higher. I do not remember seeing this before. I do not see much talk about GPSD at all.

    For some reason, today Google play services is at the top of the list. I haven't changed anything, so I'm not sure why this is draining my battery all of a sudden :/

    Can you elaborate on that some more please?

    Like what was your battery life on your old one compared to the replacement, and anything else that might of changed?

    The biggest thing I noticed in this thread and from my own personal experience, is that this phone has as severe WiFi bug. Battery life tanks for most people when they leave WiFi on.

    That isn't normal something is eating your battery, cause i have slept 7 to 8 hrs with 100% and when i have woken up i would be at 97 % or 96 %, and i leave my phone always on wifi, so something is eating your battery.
    How in the crap can I tell whats using up the battery usually leave it on all day then charge it over night but trying to go a different route with this phone since it don't need to charge for 8 hrs with the fast charger I deleted a few apps that I had but don't use I will see how that goes tonight.

    It was at first. I ended up getting 4 hours of screen time before I recharged it around 20%-15% but then I recharged it but not fully and it drained alot overnight. I ordered a Mophie case for my Note 5

    Does using app optimization for too many apps kill the battery ironically?

    This morning I woke up to a 40% drop from 68% to 20 something. I had just uninstalled some games from Amazon, and also removed the Christmas theme. Thought those might be the problem. Problem persisted. I was getting 2-3 hours of battery (screen off AND on)
    So before leaving this morning, in a feat of frustration, I turned off app optimization (I had about 20 apps optimized because the more the merrier, right?). Well guess what, I left the phone on my desk after charging it up to 100, and 7/8 hours later, it was... 95%. After that, anytime I lock my phone, standby time has been good, showing a nice flat curve on the graph. Before it was a bunch of zigzaggs downward even though the screen was off.

    At this point, I am convinced that the app optimization was the problem. Can anyone confirm?

    I lost 15% last night over 6 hours. Some nights i lose 3 or 4 %, some night 15 or more. I don't understand unless it's just the cell standby. Now it shows 26% of use. See pic.

    Just yesterday my phone has started acting up. My battery life was great, suddenlyrics Google Play Services (10%), Android OS (7%) and Android System (6%) have been sapping my battery, for reference the screen is at only 3%. Was occurring even while phone was in standby, but Juice Defender fixed that. Still running into the problem while the phone is on. Removing the battery/restarting has not helped. Phone is not rooted, no new apps installed recently, apps are up to date, no syncing issues.

    I've done everything to try to fix this issue. I've done probably 10 FDRs in the past month.

    I'm starting to wonder if the batteries in the Note 5 are becoming defective. Over the last month or so my battery life is getting worse. At times my battery percentage will be at 7%, and literally drop to 3% skipping 6,5,4%. My bought my phone on release day.

    That is odd i have my AT&T Note 5 since it first came out and no battery life issues at all, i am always getting SOT from 5, 6 , 7 and 8 , my normal SOT is 7 hrs or so.
