    On an unrelated note, I enabled a bunch of previously disabled stuff and even after heavy use I got 5 hours SoT today, which is a first. Very odd. Note 5 Battery life thread-uploadfromtaptalk1445980415038.jpgNote 5 Battery life thread-uploadfromtaptalk1445980421081.jpg

    Well my settings for what? There are so many settings, so many different apps people have, etc. That is why I keep saying, battery life is subjective, none of us run our phones the same way.
    Kelly. Have you shared what apps you disabled via Package disabler in the past? I'd like to know. If possible.

    Never mind. I found what you just posted. I'm going to try that combined with my heavy use and see what I get.

    There's no magic it's very true, also when i use to have the LG G3 i would go to work fully charged and would be standby after 8 hrs i would turn on screen and it was still at 100% .
    Ok. So that tells me i was right that lg seems to handle battery life idle time better than Samsung. I never got 8 hours. 3 or 4 with 100% which is always welcoming

    Yes the LG G 3 is Excellent on idle , but only thing i did notice on LG G 3 once it dropped at 99% battery did drain much faster, so once the Note 4 was out 2 months after LG G 3 i give it to my daughter and got the Note 4 which was the one i really wanted in the first place, and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 battery lasted much longer then the LG G3, i still have my Note 4 it's in it's box put away as a backup, but with my Note 5 battery even lasts longer then the Note 4, don't get me wrong Note 4 is bad *** phone as well, that is why i didn't sell it and put it away as a backup.

    Ok. Well I had g2 before this note 5. And even just a week ago it still drained slower than this note 5. So without repeating myself too much on this battery issue. Any tweaks you suggest to keep battery more stable?

    And a side note. They should just slap a 4000 mah battery is every phone from now on. People will not have anything to discuss. At least i wouldn't

    I think its unrealistic to expect your phone to hold 100% after 2 1/2 hours, I have never heard of any android phone doing that, dont know what black magic Ruben is using on his battery lol. Even when I sleep at night I get like 3-4% drain over a period of 7-8 hours
    I forgot to take screen shot after 2 hrs on 100% but heres 2 hrs at 99%

    It depends.. First your new or newly reset Note will take a few days to settle in.

    Set it up run it, don't check the battery all day see how you do that day.

    Remember when it shows you how much time you have left, it is based on the previous seven days of use. It is a guesstimate.

    Good suggestion. I am a bit paranoid with my battery. Especially on a new phone. Thanks

    8 minutes of active use, not standby?

    Extrapolate that 8 min / 1% out for the full life of the battery and you'd have 800 minutes for 100% of battery usage, or just over 13 hours.

    In my opinion, people are worrying wayyyy too much about their battery usage. As Kelly said, every person will have varied results depending on a whole list of factors.

    I've had days where I had to charge halfway through the day... I posted earlier in this thread showing over 9 hours of screen on time with something like 17 or 18% battery remaining... the other day I had over 11 hours of screen time and still had 30% battery.

    Signal strength, what you're using it for, brightness, wifi, bluetooth, location, etc etc etc. Everyone's results will vary.

    That is correct. 8 min on active use. Now almost 30 at 94% my lg g2 would be like 98 still

    Whatever. I will give it a week to gauge it. Not as technical as some here with the charts and diagrams.

    GSam battery app can still give an unrooted phone a good idea of what is using the battery.

    It will also tell you his much percent of battery is being used per hour.
