    Would be nice to not have to worry about the battery. I get quite a bit of downtime at work. So I'm using the phone quite a bit. Find myself always checking the battery percentage.

    Ordered a spare fast charger and thinking about pulling the trigger on the 12000mah Qualcomm Certified fast portable charger/battery as well. At least the battery does charge fast. I'll give it that.

    Been using doze since yesterday. Haven't noticed any difference.

    It's insane how much better the battery life is on the Note 5 versus the s6. I'm getting double easily. My s6 is going straight to craigslist. So disappointed in it. Note 5, so impressed. Pretty weird.

    Battery life is awesome not having any issues actually I would go far enough to say it's better then my note 4 I wonder if it had something to do with the lollipop 5.1 on the note 4 that killed the battery life and messed up the phone now that the note 5 has 5.1.1 android it's working great.

    Let me know if it starts back and I will track down someone that has a lot more knowledge and might can help more with that particular issue.
    Right now it is 14%, Much improved over yesterday's stats. Still would like to see it below 10% but I'm not complaining.

    I watched a YouTube video that was an hour long and when I started my battery was at like 96% and when I got done it was a 82% does that seem about right?

    I had WiFi off and was watching it on lte, location was on it had forgot to turn it off I feel location kills my battery faster.

    What do you guys think is that about normal battery drains for that long ago video?
    I like this phone but I'm really considering returning it because battery seems it last way shorter than my Note 4 ,tmob doesn't have units to exchange so I'd have to returned it before the 14 days are up .

    I have not done anything special other than disable all the bloat that was obvious. I use my phone when I need it. I work at a desk all day so I only field a few calls per day on the Note 5. The first day I was at the DR's office that morning so I used it a lot then but the next two days was my normal usage. My previous S5 Active would require a charge every night.

    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. https://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/08...f95fef87dc.jpghttps://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/08...ebea4d1ddc.jpg

    You really need to run it on lte for most of us to make comparisons.

    To get a fair comparison I need to see results of someone who syncs everything, runs on lte, and leaves wifi and bluetooth on all the time. I leave bluetooth on for gear2 and car and wifi on for better gps.

    I'd say an hour of lte video watching and losing 14% is pretty good.

    You could have watched YouTube for nearly another 6 hours over lte.

    Thanks for the feedback, I guess I keep on measuring this phone with my notes 4 on kitkat which had the best battery life I've ever experienced on an Android phone, and sometimes I feel like me liking this phone, is keeping me in denial about the just OK battery life lol.

    That is the thing about battery threads.. You can't compare your battery to someone else. This goes back to what I said several pages ago..

    Battery usage is relative and we all use our phones on different ways, don't get hung up on comparing your battery to another battery. It can drive you nuts.

    I use a gear 2 neo and wifi on all day and gps a lot for sales appointments. During the weekend when I wasn't using the phone I got 6 and 6.5 hours of screen on time. Yesterday I got 5 hours of screen on time but I was on the phone quite a bit.

    Well I've just seen people obsess because someone gets a different time than they do. Ironically, obsessing over battery and checking it every few minutes, uses the battery lol

    My radio percentage is huge. Not sure how negatively it impacts battery, but very annoying to see. Wonder if my battery will be better if that is somehow lower.

    Looking at you guys GSam screenshots even with higher time of radio percentage is below 10%. Not sure why mine is 50%

    Your radio percentage will be high because it's always on

    I was under the impression he was talking about the amount of time the cell radio was on. Unless you are in airplane mode or have the phone off, your cell radio time will be the same as the phone on time

    Have any of Y'ALL been having issues of your GSM battery app NOT refreshing to the current date? Mine has stayed at August 18th for a few days, though I noticed it just yesterday. I have emailed the developer, but I'm wondering if I will have to re-install the app.
