    Note 5 Battery life thread-uploadfromtaptalk1447038472304.jpg this is ridiculous. Why is android downloading 2GB of data for? I'm using the basic xml settings from the "detouchwizzing and debloating note 5" thread for T-Mobile on xda. But this is beyond my comprehension

    Is it normal for cell Standby to be the majority of your use?

    Right now my cell Standby is 18% and next closest is screen and it is 10%. And I've made no calls period during this off charge time.

    Disclaimer, I'm on verizon and WiFi

    You can't expect people that don't have the same phone as you to help you...

    What I've been doing lately is before I unplug my phone, I do a phone restart to clear any BS that's running. That seems to help. Maybe it doesn't. I don't know. I do know that when I do that and I drive home from work, I'm still at around 75% when I get home.

    I don't use my phone nearly as much as you guys do though, apparently. I don't think my phone as constituted would be able to get 5, 6, 7 hours of SOT. But I don't need that so it's okay I guess.

    I can get around 15-20 hours before I get to 20-25% left so it's pretty damn good for me lol. But it also leaves me wondering whether my battery should be lasting like 2 days since I *dont* have the screen on that much, haha. If I leave it overnight it drains like one percent an hour rather than 4 or 5 so that inflates numbers.

    For Verizon it seems to be normal. They have some bug for many that cause standby to go up when WiFi is on.

    You have to post your battery stats, the battery page, what is being used and also it would help to install GSam and post that.

    Overnight is idle drain. I charged my phone last night and I used it a while and then I went to bed. You can see where it was idle, the straight part of the line.

    Take that screen on GSam with a grain of salt. I didn't even turn on WiFi and this is what I have.

    Agree with you, You beat me to it but that is definitely correct.
    OK. Then do you all use Gmail? Do you get a lot or send a lot of emails? Do you talk on the phone?

    Again. My battery life looks amazing when I let it sit idle overnight. And that was my point. That's what was trying to say. Posting stats doesn't matter at all. Not one bit.

    Usage matters. I could have used my phone for 4 hours strsight leaving my screen on the entire time and the STATS would have said I'd have used it for 24 hours without needing a charge.

    Hell, Sprint, ATT T Mobile and Verizon themselves don't tell you those numbers. And if anything they WANT to be able to use those stats.

    Again. Leave the phone plugged in overnight. Get up. Start using it. See what happens. Right off the bat.

    I'm down to 89% after 1 hour 6 minutes because I've been on my phone th entire time I've been up. Accessing email. Reading WSJ and using this app among other things.

    So I'm actually using the phone. Using it.

    On it. Accessing information constantly.

    Sorry. Again. Realistically with normal use if this is your main driver and you use it normally or for work like me, expect 10-12 hours. 12-15 if you're just occasionally checking emails and not actually talking on the phone that much.

    That's real world.

    I came over from iPhone 6+ and got about that same.

    My company issues 6+ or Note 5 to our team of outside salespeople and not one of those people are getting more than 12 hours during the day. I know as I am responsible for issuing them.

    Summing it up. On th weekend I can get 15-18 hours. During the work week 12.

    And if I unplug it fully charged before bed I can also pretend I get 48 hours of battery life.

    I leave it unplugged overnight, get right up and start using it. You can see in the graph where it idles and where it is used.

    When the screen time is posted, that is how many hours the screen was on and the phone actively being used, that isn't things working in the background.

    I'm not sure what you don't understand about time. The battery lasts how long it lasts and phone idle is part of the time and again, a day is 24 hours and people can have their phone last longer than 24 hours.

    I generally charge by the time it is at 30% even if I could let it go overnight. I don't like letting my battery drop down below 30%.

    Charging your phone, unplugging it and going to bed, isn't pretending anything. Your phone isn't used while sleeping and many don't charge it overnight most of the time.

    I was having battery issues last week. First 4 days Android System kept getting to the 20% mark. Cleared the cache partition and didn't fix it. Decided to do a factory reset. Didn't work either. Got up to 22% with about 50% battery left. Decided to uninstall Nova Launcher and that was it. Android System hovering around the 2-3% range now since I took it off yesterday

    Your brightness is up there and you still get 7 hours SOT?? I barely get 4 hrs at 1/3 full brightness

    Do all of you who get 6-7 hrs use package Disabler pro?? Or by default you get 7hrs SOT?

    Well Android OS is such a dump for anything and everything, hard to pin down what shoots that up.

    I use Nova, but it doesn't affect my battery or Android OS. I'm wondering if you had an icon pack or some other setting in Nova that did that.

    Didn't install anything with it. Just Nova with Nova Prime. It wasn't Android OS. That was always low. It was Android System taking up a lot. Maybe I'll try again in a few days.

    Thank you so much. I cannot see the contents clearly but I think I see you've disabled CM, Microsoft Office, whatsapp and instagram among them.
    When you disable them you cannot access them right? I use those apps pretty often except office

    Oh.. Android OS and Android System.. Same difference. Since KitKat, you can't see what it is using the battery, just one of those things dumped in there.

    I would try Nova again later. I haven't used launchers in years, until my Note 4 and I use Nova.
