    Well it is kind of like not disabling too much where my phone is concerned.

    I disable some bloat, but if I disable a lot, it shoots my Android OS up and drains my battery.

    Well it is like I have said several times..if you are having an issue, the fix is not going to be to turn a lot of stuff off. Now if you have bad signal, then you might have to use the bandaid of turning a lot of stuff off, but with this phone, with everything being good, we shouldn't have to turn things off and run at half power, etc.

    I am at work and haven't really done nothing on phone while at work on 4G LTE and my idle is excellent as you can see here.

    With that you can be on TMO. You don't even have to have TMO service at your house, hook that up to your Internet.

    I've only been on the new update for a little over 5 hours, but standby seems to have improved.
    This is while mostly idle at work, previously that line was noticeably steeper.

    Speaking of the update..

    I did this thread about the new feature. Sprint and TMO have this update, or is rolling out as I post this, Verizon and AT&T don't have it yet.

    Here is an explanation of how this feature works, doesn't work like I thought it would. Everyone might want to read this.

    So far 4% battery use looks good, but run it for the entire time and let's see how it looks.

    I disable some bloat, but if I disable a lot, it shoots my Android OS up and drains my battery.
    What exactly shoots up?
    I disabled 27 items on mine (AT&T) between the Carrier and TW. Basically if I didn't need it, want it, or use it, I killed it.
    I am not seeing any huge battery suckers. From an app perspective Android OS is low down at 8.7%.

    My Android System and Android OS shoots up and becomes the number 1 and number 2 things using my battery and my battery won't even last 10 hours.

    Hope someone can help me. The past two night I have suffered from about 50-70% battery drain through the night. This is within a 7 hour window. Please let me know any details needed to help troubleshoot this matter. My phone is also not rooted.

    Thanks

    I have crazy idle drain at night as well. I have the verizon n920 and have the latest update. I have even turned on airplane mode to see if it was the signal that was causing the drain. from 100% to 75% in 4.5 hours.Note 5 Battery life thread-screenshot_2015-11-02-06-36-48.jpgNote 5 Battery life thread-screenshot_2015-11-02-06-36-43.jpg

    I have tried everything. I disabled most things on Package disabler pro, have turned off autosync. The only thing that I have turned on is wifi, just so I can use whatsapp. I am not rooted, and dont plan to at the moment.
    EDIT: Location is OFF, Power saving mode is ON, there are no themes, I use greenify.

    Try enabling everything in package disabled pro and only disable stuff through application manager.

    Still going with my battery after the update yesterday and the app optimization yesterday. It is very disappointing that Sprint disabled this feature because it is really making a difference with battery.

    most things are disabled thru the application manager as well, such as all the apps that I dont use (instagram, etc.). There are some system processes with the android icon that have been running since the phone has been on today, but I dont know what will happen if I disable those.
