    Are you on mixed band Wi-Fi? You can try separate the 2.4ghz and 5ghz bands on your router. I have seen people who have fixed WiFi battery drain by just locking the phone to 2.4ghz

    dreaming of electric sheep
    How to get that band settings on my note. I checked wifi -> more -> Advanced.
    i dont see any settings related to band preferences.

    If I'm on lte constantly I'll get 3.5-4 sot, if I leave WiFi on I could probably pull 6-8 sot.

    Luckily I don't have whatever WiFi bug everyone keeps talking about.

    I'm not 100% sure, it's an airport from Apple.

    Note 5 handles 2.4 and 5.
    I have my wifi set up with different id's for 2.4 and 5. I set my Note to choose 5 as Primary with 2.4 if no 5 or signal gets low.
    Works well.

    Can anybody explain the "mediaserver" process? It is draining my battery to death!
    I fully charged my Note5 last night and leave it there (muted, wifi on). 8 hours later, the battery drop from 100% to 56%!! And 55.8% is consumed by the "mediaserver" process!
    I have no audio files, no images on the phone.
    At first I thought it was the poor signal at home; but when I put it in somewhere else with excellent signal, same results...
    I did some research on the "mediaserver" process and it sames that the solution is only for rooted devices or old phones with SD card.
    Any suggestions will be appreciated!

    Did you try wipe cache in recovery, if that doesn't work i would factory reset, i know thats not what you wanna hear but it's the only thing i can think of.

    I had to factory reset my device because none of the customized LED colors were working for a third party app of mine. It Fixed that, but I was still draining horribly. It's 11 am, I would be at 80 percent or 75% at this time if I kept Google Now. THAT was the culprit. I freak out when it gets to 65% .

    What I did is split out my Wifi for 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz so that they have different SSID's. Then I have my Note 5 forget the 5 Ghz and that way it only connects to the 2.4 Ghz.

    I know this is old news, but I am still pretty shocked at how much my battery life improves if I force close Instagram...

    Instagram is a crazy power hungry beast!

    Anyone running on power savings mode all day long on some days?

    Here's what I am thinking... Samsung's power savings mode does not turn off location services, and all kinds of other things that render the phone pretty useless... (Ultra-power savings mode is another topic altogether)...

    Based on what I've read, power savings mode reduces CPU performance and dims the screen sooner, and stuff like that...

    Given that many of us (I am sure not all of us) are in a situation where we just need the phone to survive the business day without the demand of high CPU performance...why wouldn't you run your Note 5 in power savings mode for those situations all day long?

    I wonder what sort of overall improved battery life you could expect from that... Anyone try this already?

    I tried this, but my battery is still draining , it was close to 40% by 3pm! I thought Google Now was the culprit. I don't know anymore. I do Not want to delete apps that could be rogue because I Use them all the time.

    AT&T. I just don't get it, I don't have a very high brightness, (set to auto), I'm using Package Disabler Pro, I have no Power Saving apps installed, I use WIFI all the time, the device on GSM Battery Monitor has 0% held awake, SOT is usually high, Most of the apps I use are restricted to background, Google Photos only sync with WIFI, I have location turned off, Google Now turned off, I deleted Facebook as I've heard that's a battery drainer. My accounts, well there's no option to sync Wifi or Cellular Network. Spotify only downloads my playlist over WIFI only. I Use Do Not Disturb at night, so nothing should come through except calls, and alarms. I've turned off vibrations on the phone as I know it drains battery. All bloatware is disabled. I have factory reset the phone, wiped the cache partition. My cell signal right now is at 4 bars, sometimes it decreases. It just varies, but I can't do anything about that from where I live. I do put the phone in airplane mode when that happens, but I leave WIFI on.

    I think that's it.

    Yes. Did you see in my photo that it showed wifi on ALL the time? Scanning is off. It should only be on when screen is on.
