    Your overall battery life is low because you seem to have the phone on immediately after charging lol. You are definitely a heavy user my friend! Lol but 4.5hrs sot isn't bad, it's not great but definitely not bad.

    DEVICE HISTORY (since they got smart)
    PHONES: Galaxy Nexus, LG viper, Galaxy s3, HTC Evo 4g, Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy s5, LG G-Flex, Galaxy Mega 6.3, Galaxy s6 edge, Galaxy Note 5. TABLETS: Galaxy Note 10.1 gt-n8013, Galaxy tab 3 7.0. Lenovo tab2 A8 50 WATCH: Galaxy gear
    If you actually use your phone as a phone not a gaming toy or a battery testing device you're fine. I spend 60-90 min talking on my phone as well as email text and reading articles. I get 4 hours SOT and total battery of 13-15 hours. I don't think that is bad.

    Could certain themes use more battery? I can't seem to get more than 3 hours screen on time.

    Can't see how that would be the case. Live Wallpapers I get. Themes? If it does can't be enough to make a noticeable difference.

    Why the hell does Facebook use so much battery when I only spend a total of MAYBE 30-40 min Inca day looming at that app?

    Don't have their messenger app installed so it's not that.

    Shutapp won't shut it

    Makes no sense to me. No location for it. No notifications active. No sync active.

    I deleted Facebook App, and set up a Chrome link to facebook.com on my main screen. It gives me what I want for what limited use of facebook I do. Granted Chrome can be a hog- but nowhere near as bad as the FB App itself!

    Instagram is known to do that.

    Do you have Verizon also?

    Both of you try disabling these two in Package Disabler (if you don't have that you might can disable them on the application manager) and see if that helps.

    YES! Someone, a male, posted that a few days ago. He listed Which themes are safe. Let me see if I can find that thread.

    Never mind. It's not even listed using package Disabler pro. Not sure why unless Verizon has a different variation of Facebook.

    I have 3 Verizon Note 5 phones.($269 each, thanks to the $400 off promotion)

    I keep one as a wifi-only device(no SIM card inside the phone). That one has the best battery life(obviously) and can last over 7 days with wifi in the "always on" mode with daily usage of about 30 minutes.


    I assume most people keep their smartphones for at least 1 year.

    It will be interesting to see what the Note 5 battery life is like after the non-removable is 1 year old.

    Even in best case scenario, I predict the battery will have 80% of life left.

    What I really like to know is how much Samsung charges to replaced the internal battery of the Note 5.

    Battery will last a long time if you do not over charge, that is what happens i seen it happen on removable battery where they over charge it or charge it when it's at 80, 90 etc etc then battery gets swollen and gets damaged i seen it before on removable battery and this happens cause they over charge the phone or keep it plugged all day at there house and that's a bad thing to do.

    I have a quick question for you guys. I used package disabler pro and disabled bloatware and then reenabled some of the things I needed like Facebook and Instagram and such. But for some reason, any notification that's supposed to say "saved to gallery" shows up as some weird com.sec.android.app.smartclipservice or something like that on the lock screen only. Inside the notification shade it's fine.

    Anybody know how to fix it?
    I tried enabling everything and rebooting but the problem is still there now. It bothers my ocd.

    They show up fine on both my phone and computer so I'm not sure why they're broken for you.
    But yes I did enable everything and rebooted the phone and the problem is still there. It won't go away.

    Yup I tried it and still no change. Not sure what to do at this point. Don't want to have to factory reset this whole thing.
