    I think he was talking more percent. Mine has never been that high of a percent. My screen is always the highest.

    Previously with my Note 5 I had this issue. The phone radio matched exactly the total time off battery (the default battery tracker shows this better) AND cell standby took a huge amount of battery. I switched Note 5s and haven't yet installed all my apps, but for some reason that drain is gone.

    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

    Percentage used. I know the time is however long I have the radios on for. But I've noticed others, who has their radio on for a longer amount of time, with percentage use in the single digits, while mine is at 50%. That was my concern

    Dang that is amazing. Mine is hovering between 12-18%, I'm happy with that but yours is superb Lol.

    My cell standby was a killer when I first got the phone. It went away after I turned off wifi calling and volte

    My cell standby has always stayed low. Screen is 99% of my highest thing, except for a couple of times that Android System pops up high

    I remember years ago when I first tried Android. Back then I'd constantly check the battery and what it was doing. Here we are 7-8 years later, nope, not doing that anymore. Most devices are built to last at least 10-12 hours, with a few exceptions.

    I'd suggest we all get used to getting home\going to bed and plugging the device in to charge, while we're recharging our bodies, too

    Everyone in these forums that said they switched from the 6+ says the opposite. The 6+ battery last longer. I'll take real world use over benchmark scores anyday.

    Those are battery benchmarks. Don't really mean anything. You want real world stats.

    Mine so far. I completely reinstalled the note 5 software using smartswitch. Same apps as before but the battery is much better.

    For some reason I have no cell standby drain.

    I have also yet to enable Google now.

    Here is GSAM, and as you can see the percent used by cell radio is MUCH less than before. I really wish I knew what happened between before and the new install. I've encountered this with the iPhone as well, reinstalling iOS from a new download changed the behavior of subsequent installs. This is not scientific at all, just observation

    How is this? Screen on time is at 2 hours.

    Wanted to ask about gsam battery pro is it suppose to run in background 24/7? Sometimes it gets annoying in notification area. It would often give me very different stats from what the system is showing.
    When infirst installed it all stats under system battery dissapeared

    yeah. I was using the 6+ and the battery life was way better than the Note 5.

    It seems android gives more freedom to apps than iOS. In iOS if you select that apps give absolutely no notifications you'll get no notifications. On android however that is not the case. Also, Google is not skilled in keeping their system processes under check hence Google services going out of wack.

    From everything I have heard/seen, I believe the iPhone 6+ has better battery when both phones do nothing for a long time. All the stats I've seen posted (including going over to Apple forums) make it seem like the Note 5 will outlast the 6+ if you start both at 100, keep the screen on and make them do stuff until down to 0. This obviously isn't how most of us use our phones, so the 6+ battery is out lasting Samsung's offerings in real world battery usage.

    Side note, I have used Doze for 2 days and believe I am seeing significant improvement. I'm at 81 now and about to go to sleep. I'll post the overnight Stat in the AM.
