    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?
    My daughter was trying to have 2 google accounts on her note4 and it was messing it up. She couldnt get into the play store and her texting would receive mms.

    Her phone calls were not always going through.

    I was trying to figure out what was wrong and she mentioned she had two accounts, so i had her delete one and restart (not reset, just restart ) and the problems went away.

    I must comment. I am coming from a Note 4 and have the exact same apps, and set up that was on my Note 4 now on my Note 5. I would go from charging it over night to having to top up around 5pm when on the Note 4. Since I have gotten the Note 5, I have yet to charge it over night...I plug it in when I jump in the shower every morning and by the time I am getting to bed, I have at least 50%. The difference is not only remarkable...but borderline unbelievable if I wasn't experiencing it first hand. AND...to make things sound even more crazy...we all know how much MORE time we spend on a new phone; yes, I have been using my Note 5 more than I was using my Note 4...still in the new phone excitement stage.

    I'm seeing solid battery life today. Been playing with it non-stop today.
    Ignore the average SOT, those numbers are low because I've spent half of the last two days in areas with extremely weak cell reception.

    Disabled a ton of stuff (about 120 system apps and bloatware) using package disabler pro since we don't have root. Use adguard for ad blocking. On pace for 8.5 hour screen on time with 23 hours of up time and loss of 2-3% overnight.

    Wow. That's amazing. Absolutely amazing. You sure it's a Note 5?
    I was shocked at the results as well! I was willing to give it a shot after lollipop destroyed my m8 battery life. I'm glad that I did! I will definitely need to see how it changes during the work week before I make any final judgments, but so far so good.

    I must be doing something wrong. I might be able to pull off 3 and half hours of screen on time. I don't get it. I have most everything disable. I have bluetooth on and I am mostly on wifi.

    Yes tell us. List all of them. I don't know how to root my phone and I really don't want to as I don't understand custom ROM's.

    Research the app mentioned. The app tells you which ones are bloat. It's then up to you to decide if you want to disable them.
    Everyone's phone will have different bloatware, depending on the carrier.

    Here is the list from the XML file exported. Things I disabled may not be important to me but they may be important to you so go through list carefully. I replaced some of the Samsung apps like the keyboard with Google apps from play store also.

    Edit: oops looks like mods wont let me post whole thing. Guess I will try to get my posts up a little bit and post link to thread later.

    I also am going to try this as well. I will let everyone know how it goes once I get a full charge on it. Do ads really suck down that much battery?

    I have 4 Google accounts that sync on mine and also did on my Note 4 and S6E.

    I have 3 Google accounts and have had them all running and syncing since the note 2 then on the note 3 then note 4 and now 5 with no issue. I would have to guess that syncing 3 accounts would drain more battery than one. How much more is the question.

    On a side note how can i change how often they sync? I can't seem to figure it out.

    2nd full charge, still at home. 2 Google accounts and 1 Exchange syncing. Auto brightness. Mixed time on WiFi and on LTE. Still seriously impressed with the phone so far!

    Tomorrow will be it's first real test, at work with not-stellar signal.

    That's not particularly good... what phone did you come from where this is impressive? The guy on here who got 11 hours in a 24 hour period is what I'd like to see on all our devices

    Almost 18 hours with 11% left. 2 email accounts, about 1 hour streaming via LTE and Bluetooth to my car. Some texting and WhatsApp, Facebook, IG and connected all day to my android wear Smart watch. Pretty happy and way better than my edge and a lot smoother.

    This is my first not ever and was never into the note line or phones this big but man, something about this phone...
