    Did you get your returned original Note 5 yet from Samsung? If so, did they say what the battery problem was?
    Yes got it back. There was an issue with the update and it was also causing my battery to read full when it wasn't full. They took off the OS and put it back on, they went ahead and replaced the battery and they replaced the SIM drawer for some reason.

    Does anyone know what the circled app or process does that I see when opening package disabler? It's in pink which I think is bloatware but then again others were in pink that I unchecked since I want them.

    Thoughts?

    Wife has this phone and her battery life is better than my maxx. Sorry don't have any numbers right now other than she went more than 2 days on full charge and she couldn't care less about battery life.

    Does anyone use power save mode? I do most of the day and it really helps me. Plus, my brightness is usually turned way down because the screen is so bright. I only turn the brightness on when I'm outside in the sun.

    I'm suspected that a lot of users aren't using it. If they are having battery issues, then maybe they should.

    I do not. Never had the need, but I imagine some day if I'm stranded on a deserted island it could come in handy.

    So the first app I've found to drain a lot of my battery even when I don't use it all day is Tapatalk. Went from a 36 to 38 hour battery to a 24 hour battery without opening the app. So yesterday I disabled and battery was good again. Activated it today and it is draining again. I'm going to try and set alarms with Tasker for every 10 percent battery so I can screen capture both ways at the same points.

    Getting terrible battery life on my 5 day old Note 5 - not sure if it is a defect or something else . This morning it drained about 20% in 3.5 hours with only 40 min of screen on time. Mostly on wifi at work, advanced calling enabled, running package disabler pro with xml package from the xda developers thread (i can't post links)

    Tried master reset and cache wipe from bootloader. Doesn't seem to be helping. Thinking about exchanging the phone at BB to see if is a defect - looking at my usage numbers, there's no way I could get a day of use like some of you are reporting. i'm barely picking up the phone - if i use it for anything I can watch the percentage drop as I'm using it.

    Try it in safe mode for one day first. I'm finding apps are draining the battery without showing up as a power user. Mine was worse than yours and in safe mode it used a 1/6 the power.

    Actually that isn't what power saving does.

    Your cell signal is probably your problem, it is almost non-existent.
