    So having Android system and Android OS at the top of the list is considered bad? This is what I have on mine. I would like to note that I was at the State Fair of Texas but I left my phone charged the whole time using GPS going to the fair and leaving the fair.

    FYI, using the screen write feature with the SPen allows you to capture that list in one screen shot; use the scroll capture button on the left, then capture more

    I only use Facebook checking it occasionally during the day but notice a high amount of battery usage. Until that is I clicked on Data Usage and realized you can restrict apps listed there for Background Data Usage. They are listed in order of the data they use.

    Wow what a difference. Facebook runs constantly in the background but I don't need it to.

    When I restricted data in background it went from 9-11% battery usage to 1-2% in one day.

    I did the same thing on others as well and what a HUGE difference.

    Yours is only using 5% of your battery. If mine is idling a very long time, mine could be at the top. That is why I said, if it was at the top and not eating battery, I wouldn't worry.

    The Note 5 runs cooler, even when charging, than any phone I've ever had.

    No probably just 20 minutes. I did a chat with Samsung and they had me try, Safe Mode. Battery is insanely good that way, so that means I have apps eating up battery that don't show in the usage at all. If I could do a full backup of the phone (I tried Helium, but won't work on windows 10 and Samsung drivers crashed my 7 box on all 3 install attempts). Then I would do a factory reset and add apps back. Since it hasn't I've removed a bunch of apps I only used from time to time and it has gotten better. Today I'm going to try the whole day with Safe Mode to see what it should do through the day. Then I have a target. I only have a few apps I didn't have on my Note 3, but I had the 6400mAh battery and would never worry about what was on it or charging it. I could just watch movies for 14 hours if I wanted, so going back to watching that my battery live and my memory isn't full is a huge step backwards. I'll post what apps I find using the battery that don't show if I figure it out. I read somewhere (probably on the this tread) that Nova eats battery, but it has never been on my usage list either. How can I have some apps making my battery life half not show in usage?

    If it isn't happening in safe mode then that means some app is causing it.

    Now my issue was that no apps and it was fine, which is normal. Finally I did a reset and only added a few things like some apps from Google and a couple of apps that everyone uses on their phones and see if that still affects the battery. They did mine and that's how I knew it was an issue with my phone. Any phone will have great battery with no apps installed, unless there is some weird major problem with the phone.

    Yesterday I did, Safe Mode, all day. The picture below is yesterday. I used the phone so little there is no display time.

    Today I'm doing, Safe Mode, with power saver, no wifi/bluetooth, and advanced calling turned off. I just want to see what it would do if it was just an iPhone level phone.

    Tonight I'll probably copy all my data, do a master reset and try it like day one without Safe Mode. If it all goes good there I'll start trying to make it my phone one app at a time. Sucks the system didn't just work and show me the one or ones doing it as it would be a lot easier. Also, it's going to suck backing up the data over USB 2.0, what the hell were they thinking? Should have Type C USB 3.0. My wireless charger should be back today also.

    Well, it won't let me add image. Maybe it will work later?

    Good luck to you with your phone, it's a great thing your aware of and handy fixing this... Not everyone is.i had an HTC one exert minute the percent went down one..... That's when I went over top ios and the battery problem went.
    However I still miss and prefer the whole os of Android and my note 2 had decent battery.
    I'm going to test the note 5 before I decide to stay and grab a six a plus or not.
    I'm aware that the galaxy is an enjoyable beast

    So I've had 4 iPhones and decided that I wanted to give the Note 5 a try. On my iPhone 6 I would be at between 50-60% at 5PM. The battery life on my AT&T Note 5 has been terrible! I took it off the charger 1 hour 15 minutes ago and I'm already down to 73%. I've been on wifi but my 4G LTE cell signal is weak but my iPhone was never like this. My screen brightness is set on auto and I've turn off some of the syncing.

    Can someone give me steps I need to take to optimize my battery?

    I had the same sort of issues and it looks like some apps were causing it. Still looking though.

    Try Safe Mode to quick test. power off phone and then press and hold the down volume for the entire boot. My battery life more than doubled. I'm now using package disabler app to shut of all my installed app and a few bloat apps. I'll add them back slowly and watch what affect they have. I'm currently at 2 hours 37 minutes on battery with 97% battery left. I'd be to 80% before.
