    Ah, looks like people are still having issues. I sold my note in April and bought an iPhone 6s Plus. And it's awesome!!!! Battery is absolutely amazing, 7 hrs of SoT is normal!! Compared to 2 hrs SoT on my note 5. Never will I go back to Samsung again!

    I have a love - hate relationship with my Note 5. I love the phone and all its features, but I hate my **** poor battery life! If I didn't have a charger at work and in my car, I'd never make it through a day at work. And I don't consider myself a heavy user. I have dimmed the screen to about 50%, turned off most everything you can and still get the value of a smart phone, and it still drains fast. My wife has an iPhone and can go all day without charging, using it about like I do, and have 60%+ battery life left at bedtime. As much as I don't want to make the shift to the iPhone, it may be the battery life that drives me that direction!

    I agree as my brother has iPhone 6s Plus and he has to charge his phone midway thru the day. Not only that but Note 5 out preforms his iPhone in every way conceivable. I take my phone off the charger at 6am and when I put it back on the charger at 10pm it still has around 35 to 40% left with moderate to heavy usage throughout the day.

    I realized that i didn't factory reset my phone after upgrade to android 6, so i did it and its amazing now, do it and please just try my recommendation you can find in post #2134, i'm getting at least 1 day and 6 hours SOT in any typical day, just try it. do not forget to backup you data and apps before factory reset

    My current Note 5, five months old, a warranty replacement for original bought in November that was defective...

    Bring a heavy user, have to recharge at least THREE times a day... Battery degrading, burning through charges fairly quickly, and taking longer to recharge.

    SAMSUNG through Verizon wants to run me through the hoops to get a warranty replacement... mainly for a new battery... and I also carry extended warranty.

    Samsung wants the condition of the battery to show... bad/poor... and not good, in order for replacement. This could take some time even while the battery is discharging rapidly every day.

    IF I HAD A REPLACEABLE BATTERY, I'D JUST BUY A NEW ONE AND POP IT IN AND BAM!... I'm back in business.

    There are no Samsung repair stores here in Denver! This stinks! Apple store with new battery replacement is three miles away and an advanced one hour appointment.

    WAKE UP SAMSUNG! If you want sealed batteries, put a store in a big high tech center like Denver and replace my battery!

    If you want to wait for it to die, then step up before hand and replace it under warranty!

    Apple doesn't show you SOT! So you really don't know how long your screen is on.

    Also, the usage time on iOS includes time the phone is used with the display off such as when you listen to music with the phone in your pocket. This is why the usage times on iOS are so high.

    In iOS 9.x, clicking the clock icon so that it's blue, will show screen on time for each app.

    I have a Galaxy Note 5 and I have only 3hs about SOT. On overnight my Note 5 is consuming about 1.5% per hour. My battery life runs for about 13 to 15 hrs.
    I have everything on: (location history, Device Manager, Google Now Voice On, Location, Wifi, Bluetooth, Screen about 30%, etc)

    Galaxy Note 5 running Marshmallow.

    Posting some pictures of my battery life:

    There are many factors that influence battery life. Among them are screen brightness level, screen on time, cell and WiFi signal strength, apps in use, and background processes, etc. So, I would not worry about the differences you are seeing between what others get and your experience.

    I know what's making my Note 5 battery life horrible, it's a combination of Samsung's poorly designed antenna and AT&T's ridiculous LTE Band 30. My battery itself is probably just fine, but between the poorly made antenna and my phone sitting on band 30 with a lousy - 115 db signal it dies with minimal use in 9 hours, not screen on time, just being on 9 hours. The main battery killer is weak signal. I wish there was a way to kill this band 30. I used my same Sim card in my old Nexus 6, larger screen older battery and average 19 hours on with 4 hours screen on time and still at 29 % at night.

    i am in the same boat as you. my note 5's (920G) battery life took a turn for the worst after the december security update. the main culprit is the android system i mean these days i have to charge my phone 2-3 times a day just so that it can last till 11-12 pm. .
    This exactly! I want to roll back to last Oct and stay there in terms of Android OS update.

    I'm running a custom ROM on my T-Mobile Note 5 that is on the November 1 security update. I have owned this Note 5 a year in January and I have always complained about the battery life on this thing. At most I could barely get an hour screen time and it was never a phone I could count on being as my main phone.

    A few weeks back, I installed this custom ROM on my phone with the November update and it seems to have finally made my phone half way usable. I've had to into recovery a few times in these two weeks to delete the cache because a few times, the battery would just start draining again with all apps closed. I was finally able to 4.5 hrs screen time, something I was never ever able to get in this year of using this phone.

    This ROM had all the bloat removed and none of that other junk that the devs on the XDA forums love to throw into these ROMs.

    You would have to root the phone of course to install a custom ROM and for me, that has been the only way over this past year to make this phone useable. I think I am somewhat finally happy.
