    That is correct. 8 min on active use. Now almost 30 at 94% my lg g2 would be like 98 still
    You can't compare many phones with lg g2 because the way it reports the battery usage. Mine used to drop from 100 to 99 after 30-35 minutes of internet browsing and once I hit 97% the battery was draining like crazy. The max sot I could get with my lg g2 was 7.5hr with airplane mode enabled for 1-2 (in subway using kindle).
    I personally have edge plus but my wife and sister in law have note 5. The way Samsung reports battery drain is more accurate than the way lg g2 did.

    Never had pocket casts drain so much for the couple years I've used it. Just listening to audio pods like everyother day. Been draining the last few days.

    After months of various changes and attempts to settle my battery, I'm still unable to find the drain. The weird thing is that in safe mode it doesn't drain at all, so it's gotta be some app. Even going one by one with apps, I never was able to figure it out. I'd install one and it'd start the drain, but then removing it didn't fix the drain.

    I'm pretty convinced the culprit is a Google app, and it must be some specific setting I have on it. That or its my Gear S...

    I had G2 just before note 5, the battery on kitkat was extremely excellent. At nights it didn't dropping any battery, but on lollipop battery was so bad, on kit Kat I had 2 days with lots of usage. G2 with android 4.4.2 was the best phone I ever had in battery life concept.

    Depends on who your carrier is with. Lots of users had the dreaded WiFi signal issues, most have said it is the Google Now app that drain the most, Others says Volt LTE...there's a Ton more to list. Best bet is probably install Package Disabler Pro.
    I'm not going to state what it does as I need to go to bed, but I'm sure lots of users will enlighten you on PDP.

    Good luck.

    Why post graphs. Why not just state what you do or don't do to achieve superb battery? Would be greatly appreciated.

    Ok. Will make it easy for someone to answer. 210 pages. Break it down. What things/services. Options, settings. On my verizon note 5. Should I have enabled. Or disabled to get the most mileage out of my battery. I watched some youtube video's which were useless since the 3 or 4 steps they mentioned I already done. Thanks in advance

    Couldn't agree more. My screen was broken which made by edge plus, otherwise a very fine phone.

    I'm not on Verizon, so can't help there...

    And not to be mean, but there are 2 reasons why there are ~2100 posts in this thread.

    1. There's a lot of good information and tips from a lot of different people on how they've improved their battery performance.

    2. There's a lot of people jumping in at the end to ask questions that have been asked and answered many times already.

    There's a lot of good info here... take some time and look through it.

    It is impossible for anyone to do that for you. None of us have the same apps or same things disabled. You just have to take some time and read through the thread and work from there.

    Not really. You have people claiming to get 12 hours. What were the main tweaks they did or can recommend that they think someone with less than optimal battery predromance can do. These phones are pretty much identical. I would think. So someone like me with new phone, few apps. Just some basic things i might have missed. Known to the community that can be battery killers.

    That would be great. One post summarizing the best tips....maybe even make it a sticky. Few of us have the time to read through everything in this thread.

    I feel like some people are more about showing off than actually helping
