    First full day discharge. I went another hour and 30 SOT after this down to 13%. I made 3 or 4 phone calls including being on hold for about 10 minutes, drove around in areas with bad reception using waze for an hour and kept my screen automatic for most of the day. Location was off until I used waze and WiFi for all but 3 hours when I was out running errands.

    I've been using the wireless charger I got from Best Buy so I'm not fast charging. I'm thinking I'm only going to fast charge when I need it, which is to say I'll keep it in my bag for long days and 2A charge the rest of the time (wireless home and 2A in car)

    I don't mind topping off throughout the day to be able to go 20+ hours and still have 25% left whenever I finally crash.

    It's okay but not up to par with what my Sony Xperia Z2 gave me. I still dig this phone though.

    Yeah... Definitely not the best battery. Note 4 with the removable batteries was very nice. As long as vzw allows Samsung Pay when it comes out I'll be happy

    Turning off VoLTE has dramatically improved battery drainage from Cell standby. From 30% (!!) to less than 1%. Seems to me there is an issue with the implementation of this function.

    So yesterday I managed 17 hours off battery, nearly 4 hours screen on time before battery dropped to 7%. Better than my last phone but, not too impressive consider I see people getting 6-7 hours SOT No idea. Why my GSAM shows my Phone Radio takes 18% why ?

    Yeah... idk what the deal is. Hope a fix is found soon.

    I'm replacing my Note 5 with the 64GB version. 32 wasn't cutting it for plex sync, hopefully a new phone will magically fix my issue

    That's really good. Is battery saver on?

    No its not, I wouldnt say it is good, because it was off the charger just for an hour and I have done nothing but read the news for 2 mins and already 94%

    Also those stats are not correct I think yesterday I managed 4 hours SOT before phone died.

    EDIT: SOmething is not quite right, since I installed GSam Battery pro, my normal android stats do not show anything, no % for screen or other things, only can see facebook and messenger there.

    usage over the last 2 days has been pretty good... screenies are from Aug 23rd and Aug 24th. on the 23rd primary use was tethering with about 112 minutes in phone calls. the 24th, majority of usage was reading lots of emails (responding to a few) and approximately 2 hrs in phone calls and 23 minutes streaming video via WatchESPN. (the white space in the graph represents 3 times where i had to turn off my device (hand it to security) while assisting my team). very acceptable for my usage patterns; i'm now using this quick charge device in place of batteries which should get me through the day without issue. also want to reiterate that i'm a business user who likes to have the latest gadgets; more an "atypical" user.

    Stats are amazing and nowhere near mine, did you top up the device at all during the day?

    I purchased this for days when I am away from an outlet and need a boost.

    It should give me a good 70-80% boost and it will easily fit in my pants pocket. I have a 20,000 mAh unit for heavy days or weekends if needed as well. Most regular days I will be fine with the built in battery and I am a pretty heavy user.

    Yeah. Volte is off. Maybe it's just that I have really bad reception right now. When I move back to the city in a week we'll see

    @sup3r1or - no, i intentionally did not charge my N5 during the time periods in my pictures. this is my informal test to determine battery life without access to a charger. i know they'll be days when battery life will suck and i'll have to use a charger (i'm working for a client in the middle of nowhere). right now, i'm 100% stock (no debloating), HD VoLTE is disabled, display is at 40% brightness (fixed) and my screen shuts off after 10 minutes. as i mentioned in my post, i'm an atypical user during my work week - it's primarily business use (e.g., no reading/posting to social media, watching You Tube videos).

    What I have done now is disabled LTE, where I live singal is spotty it always switched to HSDPA and 4G. Lets see if that helps so far not really. 1% every 2 mins of use.

    What happened after I installed GSAM battery? I no longer have any stats in battery under settings, no screen % no nothing. God I hate these android bugs, tired of doing factory resets already.

    For those with high g services drain, try out GService Fix on the app store. It seems to have taken out my Google play drain.

    I don't believe so. I will update when I get it.

    I intend to use it as a plug it in while it is in my pocket when I need a bump type deal.

    Here was my day yesterday. This was better than the day before. I definitely see a difference after disabling all the bloat.

    this is after my first full day of work. This reflects my normal usage much better than my previous post. This is some of the best battery life I have ever experienced on an Android phone!
