    Hmm. So, I'm trying something different and that is turning OFF Android Device Manager as I have heard it drains the battery a Lot. Let's see how that goes. Right now, I am charging my phone and it's at 29% at 1:17a.m.

    Interesting you should ask that.... last night I left location on by accident. I usually keep it off but had it on for maps and forgot.

    I went to bed on 61%, woke up 7.5 hours later and was on 58%.

    Just 3% in 7.5 hours so I started looking around the settings to see what might be different. Only thing I could see was I left location on and Bluetooth off. And I keep my wifi set to only on when plugged in during sleep.

    Only 3%? I lose that per hour at night! I think it's my bad signal. I went out yesterday and my battery was better outside of my home :/ I'm going to try leaving my location on and see if there's a big difference

    Which setting did you have location on? Mine is always on but set to WiFi and mobile. I normally lose 5% over 9 hours.

    I have read somewhere that using nova launcher and/or zooper widget are drainer of battery life. Has anyone confirmed this?
    On my part I have stopped using those and I'm going to see how it affects battery life.

    It's on high accuracy. I had to go look because I just had turned it on via the pull down menu.

    So, I have GSam Monitor on my Note 5 but it's just the free version should I download the pro version is that going to be much better? I find my battery life isn't anywhere near as good as the 6s Plus I had before this phone.

    I had put my phone location setting to wifi and mobile but when I went to use google maps it was horrendous. Couldn't find my location at all and wouldn't give me any turn by turn directions had to turn it back to gps, wifi and mobile and then restart the phone for it to work again. If there is a way to not use the gps and still get accurate turn by turn directions I will do it but if not I guess I am stuck using the gps as I use google maps for directions quite often.

    No complaints here. Averaging about 5hrs of screen time and over 14hrs between full charges.

    If I had the money I'd jump to a iPhone 6s real quick! Tired of this POS phone and it's battery!!! All I do with it is charge, charge, and charge it!!!!!
    That's exactly what I did. I got rid of this POS and got an iPhone 6s Plus. Battery life is back to amazing again.

    My main priority with battery life is standby time. Even though I carry my phone with me at work, I don't get much chance to use it, so standby time is really important to me. Standby time on my Note 5 is horrible. I tried all the tricks to help battery life, but nothing really worked. Then I came to the conclusion that I was so sick and tired of trying to tweak things to get good battery life.

    For example, on my 6s Plus. After 2 days of light use and mainly standby time, I am usually down to around 65% to 70%. My Note 5 with the same usage probably be dead. For the week, I could get by with charging my 6s Plus twice, and that is without the battery going all the way to 0. I know some people may balk at what I'm saying, but standby time is important to me.

    I've used almost all the iPhones since they came out, and have used a lot of Android phones also. Even though I much prefer iPhones and iOS, I'll still buy an Android phone when ones comes along and catches my eye, just as I did for the Note 5. But every time I get an Android phone, I love it for a few months, then something starts acting up that reminds me of why I like iPhones better.

    The Note 5 is a really nice phone, but has horrible battery management. More than likely software related and not hardware. I still have my Verizon Note 5, which is my work phone, so I can still use that to get my Android fix.

    If you don't have the money for a new iPhone, go to order one on Apple's website with in-store pickup, and when at the pay part, sign up for PayPal credit. As long as you don't have really bad credit, it should get approved. Then just pay for it monthly. I think they even have 0% interest if paid off within 6 months.

    Is your Android Device Manager enabled? If so, TURN IT OFF. It drains the battery quickly. Ever since Saturday, I've left mine off. I'm at 55% right now at 319 p.m. With it on, I'd be at <35%.

    Is it better to turn off or just Uninstall it?

    For me I have turned it off. IF you Uninstall it, it could mess up your device. So be cautious. Anyway, battery is much better. Even when I have, like 1-2 signal bars at work , I still had plenty of battery left for the drive home. It is 8:35 p.m. right now and phone is sitting on 18% from medium use.

    This phone is a beast. Really put it through its paces tonight and it has passed with flying colors. Was on call for work tonight from 5pm-5am.

    Unplugged at approximately midnight and have been on it just about non stop. Watched a movie, an episode of Shameless, browsed YouTube, Android Central, played a little music in addition to texting and emailing and I'm over 6hrs of SOT. I don't think I ever got close to that on my note 3 or 4 regardless of how light or heavy my usage was.

    I'm getting great battery life from my Note 5.

    If you don't have the money for a new iPhone, go to order one on Apple's website with in-store pickup, and when at the pay part, sign up for PayPal credit. As long as you don't have really bad credit, it should get approved. Then just pay for it monthly. I think they even have 0% interest if paid off within 6 months.
    This is just silly. The Note 5 and the iPhone 6S cost about the same.

    If anyone is interested in a wireless quick charger, I've purchased 2 of these now and they are actually really good quality. And I *love* the fact that it's got a built-in brightness sensor, so to the LED indicators dim when you turn out the light in the room.

    https://www.wish.com/geek/m/c/56543b8fe1046260a6989ae9

    Got one on the desk at work, and one of the end table at home. And I can confirm that the phone shows "Wireless Quick Charge" when I set it on one of these. I've just trained myself that *this* is where I set my phone when I put it down, and I don't even think about battery life anymore.

    This is my first phone with wireless charging, and I'm 100% SOLD

    EDIT: Just an FYI, these are coming from China, so be prepared for the 2 week shipping time.
