    I'm going to go to an AT&T DSC Center on Monday and get my Note 5 replaced and see if I have better luck with another one.

    Although as I hate to admit it, an iPhone 6s+ is starting to enter the back of my mind as an alternative. I dunno.

    I've thought about that too. But I can't give the camera and 2k AMOLED screen up...

    Ya I totally agree. The camera on the Note 5 blows away the 6s camera.

    I guess I'll see what happens with the replacement on Monday.

    What's funny is that my friend has a galaxy grand prime with 5.1.1 on tmo and gets better SOT than my note 5.

    For those having issues with Battery drain, why don't you do this to calibrated your battery, on the dialer press *#0228# after will show a menu with battery details and in the bottom a button saying QUICK START, press there and it will lock the display, unlock and wait a little bit at till get a message. After close everything and drain the battery at till 0 and after full charge and then should be calibrated , this works on any Samsung phone.

    Is there a certain percentage that the battery has to be at in order for this to work properly?

    Does it matter if I use the quick charger or a slow charger?

    Doesn't matter if it's quick or slow charger, first you need to let battery hit 5 % then dial the code i mentioned after that recharge.

    If we got a fix for the WiFi cell standby bug I'd be happy camper.

    I'm 11 hours on battery, 6 of them sleep overnight time, 3:45 of screen on time, 44% left and my breakdown is 26% of use is cell standby.

    26% !!!!!

    If you have GSam please post your graph showing phone signal strength. Note here I arrive to work very early in the morning. My cell strength jumps up considerably as I get a much better cell signal at work than at home.

    Mine updated with more data..



    Point of all this is that a weak signal is going to drain your battery more. And while I see that Gsam looks at your phone signal and classifies it as 'medium' I bet if you look at Settings/System/About Device/Status/Sim card status, you'll find your signal strength probably near or above -100 dbm....anything in triple digits is bad. For example, in an extreme case, I took a trip out to the sticks while on T-Mobile. My cell coverage was horrible...I was barely getting any signal at all. I come home and look at my data usage....it had skyrocketed during that period even though it wasn't receiving any data. I could only surmise it was the cell phone working extra hard to grab signal.

    Here's how 4G LTE Network in my area works so far, and this isn't bad it's normal


    Of course if i was at home with wifi it's better.

    That's kinda my profile. When it's mostly not in use, about 3% per hour. It was even better before I added my Gear S2 Watch and a bunch of apps.

    Yeah, let 'er rip. It's just gotta be off charger.When you first open it up the graph page is represented in an icon in the lower left of the screen. Click that and then click phone signal. Of course there is all sorts of other useful information it provides.
