    Looks like I was way off on my assumption that the battery life would be bad. So far it's damn good

    Yes. It installed all the apps I had on my note 4. It's crazy that its this much better than the s6. Really didn't buy any of the efficiency and optimization stuff at all. But something is working.

    My last shot of the night before I plug it in. Worked it pretty hard the last hour. So far extremely happy with this device.

    Why plug it in with 73% left?

    I hope the S7 has a battery this size or bigger. The S6 is the perfect device except for battery life

    On what level do you leave the screen brightness on? You're on wifi all day, looks like you have a low cell phone signal, so I can understand. Any video recording, pics, heavy multi tasking, video playback, not looking at dark images too much, or gaming?

    Just to get a better idea of the usage. Thanks for the screenshots!

    Eww, no... Zero is bad for it. They should be plugged in above 20%, preferably 40%.

    Brightness is on auto. No Power save. A few pictures no video recording yet. Mostly just browsing the Internet and a few you tube videos. Only had it half of a day! Lol. I consider 5 hours sot and 20 hours total to be my minimum. I do think the battery life will come down to earth a little when I start moving around on lte. But I think it'll still be able to get 6 sot and 24 standby. Which surprises the hell out of me. And would be better than I got from the note 4 with my usage.

    Thanks! Yeah I know you haven't had too much time to do everything on it yet, but thanks a lot for the input on the battery.

    I'm going to try to fight my disease today and leave it unplugged when I'm in the car. Might need a xanax.

    Lol at this battery life threads... It all varies from person to person. Some people use smartphone like a dumb phone and get great battery life, it all depends on network strength, apps you have installed, different account sync, screen brightness and various other factors. One person can get 5 hrs sot and other can only 2. There will bunch of battery life sucks thread soon like every other phone ever released.

    That may be true, but there is nothing wrong with getting someones personal experience.

    My mom charges her note3 about every third day, she obviously doesn't use it a lot.

    My experience is that the note3 and note4 got about the same battery life the way i used it..

    So i for one appreciate the battery life threads, even if results vary.

    So far, if the note5 can last through a long day then i may be able to overlook that damn glass back!

    This is useful feedback since WIFI eliminates potential reception issues that zap battery life. On my Verizon S6 on WIFI, auto brightness and no power saving mode I get about 6 hours screen-on-time so Note 5 is even better.

    Ditto!!!! I hope the Edge+ folks start chatting about battery life as well. Can't decide on which one. I had the Note 3, excellent battery life IMO. This all sounds great.

    Since i havent had an edged screen, i wont miss it, but ive had the note 2 3 4, and if i get another samsung its got to have the s pen.

    Im terrible, go from the notes to the moto droids and back again.

    Ive been spoiled with good battery life and don't want to give that up
