    For some reason when I view your posts, or a post of your homescreen on my phone, it never shows up for me. On here using my tablet, I see your battery screenshot just fine.

    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.

    My battery life hasn't been that great. But, I have been using my phone more than my iPhone I used to have.

    The only complaint I have is the standby drain. Everything else on the phone is the best I've ever used

    I just bought this yesterday and my battery life is horrible. It drained 22% while just being on standby. Even my S4 was never this bad. Is my phone defective? Does anyone have any advice?

    According to Gsam the cloud seems to be eating a lot of battery. Should I disable it? Will disabling it delete my existing data (like the contacts transferred from my last phone)?

    I don't have enough posts to post a screenshot...but the battery settings say the cell standby is using 20%.

    I talked to a Verizon rep but he wasn't much help.

    Remember, there are power saving modes on the Note 5.

    Is there anything I can do to prevent the Cell standby from eating 21% of my battery? That doesn't seem normal at all. I've already turned on power saving mode.

    In an hour of use I'm down from 65% to 44%. If I can't fix this I'm definitely returning this phone.

    If you began to set your phone yesterday, this is normal, remember, the phone is trying to set everything you have on the cloud, on each app and in all places. One common thing is if you just set Google photos, the first time it will upload or sync all your photos with the cloud, depending on the amount of pictures and videos you have, it may take hours to do so, draining your battery in the background.

    Just follow the suggestions on this thread, it's long, but begins from the very first page. In a summary, turn off Location History on Location settings (Location reporting is on now by default and a huge battery killer) adjust your Screen brightness to a point where you feel comfortable, and go to Wifi settings and in Smart Network Switch, turn that off, and in Advanced turn off Always allow scanning. Remove Bloatware and turn off Services and sync from Google and Samsung that you won't use.

    I think the above is a summary of the most important things to pay attention if you are concern of battery life.

    Thanks for the suggestions. My location is always off anyway, and Smart Network switch was already off.

    Is there a guide to bloatware? I don't really know what I should and shouldn't disable.

    In the time between this post and my last post the battery drained another 4% down to 40%. :/

    For Bloatware, just look at your App drawer and go one by one, if you will use it leave it, if not Disable it or uninstall it. But in general everything your carrier adds to the phone is Bloatware, Samsung has some and even Google has some, just disable or uninstall anything you won't use.

    How long does it usually take for the phone to settle down?

    I charged my phone to 100%, it's down to 94% in about 25 minutes. Battery screen says only 6 hours left. At this rate my phone will be dead by lunch. I turned off printing as well.

    Gsam also says "phone radio" is eating 26% of my battery. I'm not sure what that is.

    I don't know how you guys get such amazing battery life, I average at 4 hours of SoT. This is after having tons of stuff turned off in package disabled pro, so almost no bloat + no Samsung stuff, voLTE is off and I'm running a dark theme. I've also done numerous factory resets but I don't think I'll be able to do better than this, unless there's something you guys think I'm missing

    oh, and this is the T-Mobile variant.

    Disagree. I've had this on forever and doesn't do a thing to my battery.
