    I have my camera set to capture RAW and am in single shot PRO mode and can't seem to find the .dng files only .jpg files?

    I am using package disabler and am wondering if I turned off something related to shooting RAW.

    Any insight?

    Anybody else see this as a problem? My battery life was solid before the past couple of days and it has absolutely tanked. Maybe my perception is wrong but this doesn't seem normal to me Note 5 Battery life thread-screenshot_2015-09-12-00-16-48.jpg

    If a battery optimizer is using 5 percent of your battety, it is not a battery optimizer; get rid of it. Your phone is not sleeping which means apps are pinging it awake. How many apps do you have and have you gone into each one and optimized their notifications for your use? You don't need push notifications on every single app or you're going to get terrible battery life

    Your phone doesn't come with an app that can display RAW images which is why you can't see it in your gallery.. You have to install a 3rd party app from the Play Store that can view those files.

    Alright so I went thru and disabled notifications for the apps that come alot (Bleacher Report, Fantasy apps). So theoretically, that should allow my phone to actually sleep and stop "android system" from taking an abnormally high amount of battery?

    Got it. I found the directory on the phone where the .dng files are located. What I've found so far is I can highlight them and "share" or copy them to a RAW Folder on my Google Drive which I have access to on my Photography Machine. From there it's business as usual with Adobe. I was just thrown for a loop in trying to figure where they were being put on my phone.

    Thanks!

    Mod Note - Again... please keep it on topic. This thread is for discussing battery stats & getting help (if needed). This is not a thread to argue battery semantics.

    I just used Package disabler Pro and chose disable all bloatware. Then I select show all disabled. Finally, I enabled the ones I would use.

    I disabled yahoo live weather etc...

    OK. So what is the name of the app you do this with and do I need to be connected to laptop to perform this option?

    If you are disabling in the application manager, then anything it let's you disable should be fine.

    Looks like I was way off on my assumption that the battery life would be bad. So far it's damn good

    I'm on the same page. The note 4 was a great phone but this thing hums and lasts.

    I was having the same problem. i took it to the Samsung guy at Best Buy, he put it in ultra power saving mode then restarted it and then took it out of ultra power saving mode and within a day or so i saw a big improvement with my battery performance.

    Fairly heavy use at home yesterday on a lazy Sunday.

    A few brief calls, some texting, email, Facebook, Tapatalk, Netflix, Words with Friends, etc...

    Brightness on auto, bluetooth on all day (syncs with my fitbit and Bowflex Max), wifi on, advanced calling on. I've disabled/uninstalled apps that I don't need or use, but I don't use anything like package disabler to disable services or anything like that.

    Pretty happy with my battery life.

    Update from today. Woke up and pulled my Note 5 off the charger at 6am and it's now 2:20pm and I'm at 73% charge. Moderate to heavy use, screen at 50% which is plenty bright inside and with bluetooth connected to my Gear S and low power location services turned on too.

    VERY Happy with the battery life out of it so far.
