    This is what I had on Sunday, with all turned on.
    I believe I had about 3 hours of screen on.
    Note 5 Battery life thread-412.jpg

    On Monday I turned off Enhanced 4G LTE and I got this.

    Note 5 Battery life thread-scrapbook_1440508501949.jpg

    I'm on AT&T and pretty much all the time I was on wifi.

    Today I enabled Enhanced 4G LTE and disabled WiFi auto connect and always allow scanning. I'll post tomorrow what the results are.

    I can tell that my note 4 had great battery life.
    After the last att update, a factory reset it and disabling quite a lot of bloatware I would have 30% left in a day like Monday.

    On Note 5 you can disable a lot more without the need to use the debloater tool, so I haven't used yet.
    But I did disable all Att apps, along with Amazon, ubber, live walpapers straight on app manager.

    Here is a screens hot of what I have disabled.

    Because everyone uses their phone in different ways.

    Like Kelly said.

    Different networks, cell signal strength, usage patterns, wifi use, accessories like Bluetooth and watches, screen brightens and timeouts...etc Mine changes on a daily basis pretty much.

    Yup, there are days on my N4 I got only 4 hours of SOT and about 8-10 hours on a charge and some days I got 9 hours SOT and 18 hours on a charge.

    I will post updates to this thread, but over the weekend my phone was down to 50% by 2-3pm with what I consider light to moderate use. Coming from iPhone 6 Plus I similar usage would net me 2 days off a single charge.

    During work yesterday was at home on wifi and was using hangouts on PC throughout the day with notifications turned off and battery was at 53% at 4pm.

    Today at work not on WiFi - I have disabled all unused bloatware, hangouts notifications off, WiFi off and SOT of 41min and 6 hours of use in at 71%. Which I find terrible for the fact that it is almost all standby usage. I picked up a Moto 360 with the giftcard from BB and that battery died by 10am this morning so something happened to that but it's not reflected in phone battery stats and drainage is constant after the watch died.

    Edit:
    Here are usage stats as of 11am this morning

    Mine today..but I must warn.. Get things working like you want and don't obsess over battery life. Have it like you want and enjoy your phone.

    Kelly to confirm you're getting at least a days (over 12-15 hours) with moderate to high use? Thanks

    Absolutely the truth. My Note 3 and iPhone 6 Plus would run for over 2 full days with light use.

    I'm hopeful an update will fix some of this...

    Tomorrow my 64GB Note 5 comes to replace this 32GB version. If I notice any differences (I might try a different setup) I'll post them here.

    I would think so too. I had a Galaxy S6E. Battery life was so much better after an update.

    My battery life has gotten quite a bit better since Friday. I think the battery may just needed to calibrate.

    Always when you buy a new phone there is "settling in" time for the battery. But.. If you had bad battery life with your old phone and do everything the same, you won't have good battery life with the knew one. There are limited things that will improve your personal battery life, bigger battery, some optimizations, but if you had trouble before, without a much bigger battery, if nothing changes with how you use your phone, you will still have problems.

    Just seems like "fruity" devices do better out of the box than this. Annoying mainly

    But you have no options. That is why most people that use Android want Android, they have more control and options.

    Yes and why I'm still on android... i just don't understand why we have these issues. I can't think of much I want running in the background other than normal sync, which fruits keep turned on but only lose 1%/hr

    You had a lot of wake locks on your N4. Something was waking it all night and always keeping your phone from going into a deep sleep. It might take reseting and every couple of days only adding two or three apps back at a time to figure out which one was doing it.

  22. MedicD's Avatar
    Yeah, when I get my 64GB Note 5 tomorrow I'll try that very carefully and slowly for once. I ended up not caring because the Note 4 had 3 batteries... not an option now!

    Kelly do you use Google Now? I have a feeling that and Google Wallet are partial culprits, and both I'd rather not give up.

    Also, with the Note 5 how do we view the wake locks like we did on the Note 4?

    Here are mine for today... I typically charge the phone every other day since I have had it. I keep a wireless charger at work and use the plug in charger any other time.

    Mine today after using the debloater on the play store. I'll have a more strenuous day tomorrow. I used the non root version of wakelock detector and found the main culprit of the large android system usage was Google music so I disabled that and am now using the Samsung native music player.
