    Biggest battery drain is google play services that I have no idea how to get rid of.

    For me turning off these 2 things:
    1. Google now
    2. Location history
    Will take play services out of my battery stats. Give it a try and see if you get the same reaults.

    How do you disable google now? Is it the regular google app?

    Is there a good replacement for quick traffic updates for "going home" if I disable Google Now? I love just opening my notification panel and seeing whether it's 30 minutes to work or 50.

    That's really what I use it for the most. And reminders but I can DL a separate app for that.

    I have the same issue. Biggest battery drain is the cell standby.

    I have mine off. I use an app called Screebl. It keeps your screen on depending what angle your phone is at. Totally customizable. Screen shuts off when phone is flat, or whatever angle you configured in the app.

    Battery life still isn't great if you're wondering if turning that off helps.

    If you had battery problems on a Note 4 you probably will on a Note 5, unless you change how you are using the phone.

    You don't have to have Google Now running to use voice search. I rarely turn Google Now and have always used Google search voice, sometimes using the widget that comes with the phone. Also I use "OK Google".

    That was just what it was when I unplugged it and went to bed and then picked it up this AM.

    I think your cell signal has a lot to do with the standby drain. I have a poor signal in my house. 1 bar at most. This causes standby battery drain. (at least I think it does)

    I have a signal booster in my house, so I have very good signal.

    I have 3/5 bars of 4g at my house, and about the same at work. I have a signal booster not setup, I suppose I could do that, but I think it's only 1x or 3g. Won't my phone default to the 4g it sees instead?

    If it is AT&T that booster is for calls, works well. T-Mobile is for calls and fast data.
