    I disable Google Voice. I enabled again. Now when I hold the home button, it goes to Google App with the cards. What do I need to do to bring up Google Voice when I hold the home button?

    I noticed the biggest app for battery drain is Android System, Kernel(Android OS) and Google Play Services. Is this normal?

    Depends a screen shot would tell us if it is or not.

    Generally the phone seems to be settling down a bit. Battery behaves erratically though, sometimes the drainage is fast (around 10-12% per hour), and other times, with similar usage, it's around 4-5% per hour and I am clueless about this battery behaviour.

    Unfortunately I had heard great things about Note 5's battery performance, but this has been disappointing. The only compensation is fast charging.

    Can somebody here give me there battery time estimates? Like with no wifi/mobile data/location etc and how then with all these things ON.

    Similarly it will be great if you can share the battery drainage rate of change on hourly basis.

    Monday, safe mode no screen on


    Tuesday, safe mode and most things off or low, plus power save. Did use it more though.



    Today, no safe mode with so stock andall 3rd party but alarm off. Wifi on the last 4 hours to 2.4Ghz. Even more use today.


    Tomorrow, I'll add some more back but battery life is an issue now. Just functions I've used for years lost right now.

    Greetings,

    I've switched from S5 to Note5 last week and I'm having a terrible battery depletion issue. I'm charging my phone to 100% by using its OEM adaptive fast wall charger and unplugging it and closing all background apps and cleaning RAM with smart manager just before sleep. After waking up after 7-9 hours later I'm finding that 60-65% left in the battery everyday. I'm sending you the screenshots. I didn't see any apps running in the background. No significant WiFi downloads, no cell operator caused signal issues or significant mobile data usage in the background. And screen is off during these hours but I'm loosing nearly half of my charge by sleeping beside my phone..
    After searching on Internet I've applied suggestions such as:
    - NFC, Bluetooth, adaptive screen color, etc. all disabled (WiFi, MobileData, Location, mail sync are the only active ones).
    - Screen Brightness is around 25% and set to auto.
    - Disabling all sensor related functions such as smart stay, background animations, etc.
    - Being sure that google location history is turned off. (I'm constantly using swarm app to make check-ins while I'm awake so I will not disable the GPS - it was always on at my S5 and I never had such a problem).
    - Disabling android device manager user (under advanced security options).
    - Disabling all Sync options except emails (2 mail accounts in mail app that are being checked every hour and Gmail).
    - Restricted nearly all possible apps from using background data (except whatsapp, facebook, messenger, swarm, periscope, youtube just to keep receiving notifications-but even they aren't active during night).
    - Adjusted all apps to auto close in smart manager.
    - Only using OEM weather app and nearly no apps yet installed on the phone.

    I'm about to loose my mind because of this battery issue. If I'm supposed to disable all the functions of the phone all the time and every time if I'm going to need them I'm supposed to spent lots of time at the settings to activate them and then disable them again; what's the point in using this phone? If I can not solve this problem I'll get the phone back to dealer for a refund.

    I'm madly need your advises. Your help and support will really be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Cheers,

    Yeah that's how it should be 40% is no way acceptable for an unused phone in 8 hours :/ There is definitely a problem and I'm out of ideas what it is. Even the battery apps aren't helping to detect the problem :/

    Did you try a factory reset, sorry at work so if i missed that, and see what apps you can disable if none of those things work i would call your provider ask them to give you another Note 5.

    I did all the suggestions for S6/edge & Note5 but that's what i still get

    I didn't do a factory reset because the phone is already out of the box 5days ago. No firmware/OS update installed. Only a few apps (9-10) installed. Disabled as much standard apps as I can and as many functions as I can.. And I still can't see what's the problem.

    Can you say what drained 40% of my battery from the screenshots? any app? wifi? Mobile data? GPS? I really don't understand what's happening during the standbys

    Had a weird increased drain; I think it was Google now. Have Doze running after a factory resetNote 5 Battery life thread-uploadfromtaptalk1444945076967.jpg great idle times. I've also not installed Samsung pay yet as wells Fargo isn't supported yet. The only other change is that I am using the stock email app and not the GMail app. Google now is obviously set to off.

    I just read that the Doze feature in Marshmallow sets things that are high priority to not Doze BUT email isn't one of them?

    I hope there will be an option to override that. Email to me is a high priority for most.

    Yeah, someone in a another forum was worried about tbis, but a person using the Doze feature on their Nexus 6 said that it won't interrupt the notifications.

    No. Not all the way to 0. That will shorten the battery life span. Everytime people comment saying Drain to Zero, another comment or who is more wise than me when it speaks of batteries says No do NOT , do Not drain to Zero.
