    I was able to download PDP, but I need to backup apps first. I want to disable the bloatware all of it and the packages listed from the XDA Development forum. I need to know which app will work best for a NON rooted phone.

    I just typed a huge reply that disappeared and I can't type it all back right now. I will have to do that in a little while.

    For those having the issue of LTE not turning off with WiFi and causing high standby:

    Who is your internet provider?
    What router do you have?
    Verizon with Verizon router they provided

    Cell standby is killing my battery life. Last time I checked, cell standby was at 25% and my screen was only at 3%. Coming from an LG G2, the massive drop in battery life with the Note 5 is really jarring.

    Download doze app this app runs in the background. I had the same problem during standby with battery drain, another thing I noticed the battery needs to be drained and recharged a couple of times. This has made a drastic change to my battery life problems. I am not using any power saving but I have disabled "Android Device Manager" this can be found under device administrators. Location history in Google is the biggest battery drainer make sure location history is switched off so phone does not track you through the day.

    My battery drain was so bad that I actually exchanged my Note 5 for a new one at AT&T. My new phone was the same, with the same poor battery life. I changed the above settings now I am left with around 40 to 45% battery at the end of my long day. My day usually starts at 04:30am I get out of bed and take my phone off charge. I plug my phone back on charge at around 21:30pm. I usually use my phone for texting around 100 messages and using Google chrome through out my day and about 2 hours of phone calls. I am not a very heavy user but hope this info is helpful.... Thanks

    Right, the Package Disabler Pro says to backup apps first. I'm wanting to know what would be a good recommendation for an App to backup and restore apps. I'm looking for specifically backing up Apps. I already use the cloud to sync and backup files, contacts, music, video.

    It depends on what stuff you intend on disabling. I didn't go and disable hundreds of things and I didn't back up anything.

    Myself if it was going to back up apps, I would use Smart Switch on my computer to back them up. Also don't delete any of them, you don't get that space back if you uninstall them.

    It's interesting you are satisfied with that battery life. I guess whether you're happy with the battery life depends on what you're used to. My LG G2 was getting 7+ hours of screen on time on day one and it used virtually no battery when idle.

    If you are just disabling apps, no need to backup first. You can simply enable the apps through the app if you need them again.

    Backup is only required when you uninstall apps.

    Just over 5hrs of use on the battery clock of my Note 5 so far today with and estimate 9hrs left according to the phone. I'm right at 88% battery. That's with Bluetooth on and connected to my Gear S and low power Location Services enabled.

    VERY impressed with the Package Disabler app. VERY Happy that it's so simple to use. I won't upgrade an OS without this app being able to run. I've killed all the useless bloat and apps that came with the phone for a more streamlined look and definitely more efficient interface.

    OK. I'm considering this now although I've read that when system updates occur you need to reinstall everything again? Question is its non root but do I need to connect to to laptop to get something on the phone first?

    Converting back before an upgrade is a snap. No need to connect. All done on phone. At 78% now but been out and about all day. Up today at 8am. No charges.

    They're virtually identical as far as hardware goes. I'd take the Note over the Edge+ simply because the Edge+ screen is going to be easier to damage because of it's shape.
