    For Verizon it seems to be normal. They have some bug for many that cause standby to go up when WiFi is on.
    I am searching the forums but is there any tweak or fix to help with that?

    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
    Right if you disable them, you can't use them. I don't use Instagram at all.

    As far as Cheetah Mobile anything, including Clean Master.. It needs to be disabled, it should have never been allowed on any of these phones. Cheetah Mobile needs to be banned from the Play Store.

    They are very intrusive if you don't disable most of the services. The only option I use is the junk cleaner (I've turned everything else off). Comes in handy at times. Even the smart manager widget Samsung offers is by them.
    Can I know your reasons for hating it.

    Yes I know that Samsung widget uses it. First, you don't need something like that, in fact it can make your phone have problems. Let Android handle the RAM, clearing cache is rarely necessary. When these programs kick stuff out of RAM, it just has to reload again.

    Also Cheetah Mobile has a huge issue with privacy concerns, even China has an issue with them. Let me see if I can find the thread with the info.

    Ah I think I know how your note does it. Your theme probably helps extend the battery life a lot. I changed my wallpaper to a black rich one for some time and I got around 4.45 hrs of SOT

    It used to be a pretty good app, back when we needed to manage RAM some ourselves on Android. Then they sold it to Cheetah Mobile and RAM no longer needed to be managed. Androids just run better with a full RAM, it is the opposite of a Window's computer.

    Everyone uses their phone different, but I can tell you without and charts or graphs this phones battery runs out at a constant rate. If you get light use you will be fine. If you are near a plug were you can fast charge you will be fine. But if you work out side and use evernote for your job all day like I do your going to be in a pinch on a daily basis, wondering why you paid $900 for this device.

    Personally I could care less about the "design language" and the thinness of the phone. I wanted the best System on a chip, and a big screen.

    I have the exact opposite experience. With moderate to heavy usage, my battery will last the day with excellent screen on time. You may want to look at your settings or coverage area. Bad signal is the biggest battery killer and ppl don't always think about that. Especially if travel is involved

    For sometime I have gotten to a point where I get excellent battery life...goes all day with around 6 hours or so of SOT or almost 1.5-2 days in some instances with 3-4 hours of SOT.

    However, twice over last week...I have had battery drop 30-40% overnight in standby. I have no idea whats causing that...nothing has changed on the phone, nothing has changed with signal, haven't disabled or enabled anything new. Its a mystery...

    Something weird like that, it would make me think there was a network issue during that time.

    Yup network issues can happen while sleeping even the wifi can have issues while sleeping, doesn't happen to me but I've seen it happen at my daughters house while she comes to my house and her phone runs better.

    You have got to post screenshots from your phone. You need the battery graph, and the first page of the GSam graph. Pictures from a tablet are not clear and are sideways.
