    AT&T - I've disabled their bloat. You will notice, I was in the office pretty much all day, so had wi-fi on most of the day....

    I agree. I've had my T-Mobile Note5 for two days now and I can't achieve battery life like that. I'm going to try to push the device today and report back.

    What was your screen on time? JW

    Ok, here are my findings:

    I took my phone off the charger at 7AM yesterday--100% charged

    I surfed the net
    Answered some texts
    Answered some emails
    Talked on the phone
    Played some music via bluetooth (maybe 30 mins)
    Made a few ringtones
    Downloaded a couple of apps

    And went to bed...without plugging it up.

    I am awake at 6:22 AM with 47% battery left. Fine with me. What I did above is my typical usage for a phone, though. Occasionally, I may surf the net and answer emails a bit more. And when I'm unsure of where I'm going in town, I do use the Maps feature.

    I do use the Power Saving feature, though.

    I agree. I don't understand why the S6 edge plus wasn't the new model of the Note Edge.
    Agreed

    Obviously root isnt available yet so what type of changes are you making on your phones to improve battery? Iv disabled some bloat but more information is great.

    The icons at the top match an HTC phone not a Samsung phone.

    For some reason, my Note 5 fast charing isn't working. I was at 85% and plugged it in. It says that it will be charged in 53 minutes.

    I don't have the GSam app downloaded. I will download it. I don't see that info on the stock Battery screen.

    You should be able to click on battery settings and see it.

    Haha yes for this trip to sux flags I'd go with the batteries and note 4. Haha esp since you can't get it in time.

    Below is the one I have which has been great. It absolutely says "fast charger connected" when I connect, and does charge fast. These external quick chargers are game changers! They finally made me feel ok with not having removable batteries.

    I've seen the same exact shape/specs/etc as the one I got below under several different brands though. I'll bet they're all from the same factory on China.. But it's been working great!

    Don't forget about the Samsung official external quick charge batteries too!

    A lot of "worked great until 30 day warranty expires" posts. Too many.

    I get 3 hours screen on time with note 3 but I do not want any battery saving "secrets" that all have the same thing in common: dim screen, less or no sync, no games, no amazon, no ebay, no nuthin that I buy a smart phone for.

    I've never understood this either. If I have to disable everything I would get a flip phone.

    50% brightness would burn my eyes out. Have you tried lowering the brightness and putting it on auto?

    I love everything about this phone except the small battery. This thing drains faster than a lead boat with a hole in the bottom. I came from the heart note 3 and thought the battery would be at least that good. WRONG!

    Now I know why they keep advertising the fast charging because the battery socks so bad. This fast charging isn't really all that new. It is a little faster than my note 3 with a 2.4 amp charger.

    Downgrading the battery was a total asinine move on the part of Samsung,but I guess they have to save money where they can.

    You have a high resolution screen. Doesn't matter that it is amoled. You have an octorcore processor coupled with 4gb of ram. All that put together takes a whole lot of juice, so Sammy comes up the brilliant idea of putting a smaller battery in!

    At least they have a wireless charger. I think my new phone will be sitting on it most of the time!
