    Hello everyone. I just picked up note 5 64gb version yesterday. I was very pleased with the phone and also battery life. However I left it in do not disturb mode at night it had 84% battery left or more. Woke up 6 hours later to 72% then another 2 hours later to 65%. Why is that? I don't have any apps running in background no downloads or updates. Anyone noticed that?

    Post your battery stats screenshot. I too am having massive drain, in fact it seems worse than my Note 4. #1 draw is listed as "cell standby"

    I was about to make this same thread

    That drain rate actually sounds very good to me. 6 hours and you lost 12% of battery, that is really good IMO.

    By the way , DND mode just stops notifications, it doesn't help your battery at all(people may quibble that stopping vibration will help battery life slightly, but not to any noticeable amount). Mobile data polling and connections are unaffected by DND.

    The OP is not having "Massive battery drain". Posting screenshots won't hurt, but the OP seems to have a different question then that cell standby detail on yours (which is an odd one though , I must say.)

    So if you extrapolate that out to one day then you would lose approximately 48% of the battery in one day while the phone is just idle. That doesn't sound very good to me..

    That's not good at all. 1% or less per hour would be good

    To each his own, I suppose. I don't know why anyone would mind losing 12% in 6 hours. I guess if that bothers you, it does. As you say that equates to 2 days standby time. This is absolutely fine by me ..

    I remember going 2 days on a Note 3 with 7 hours of SoT. Note 4, couldn't do it. Note 5 I'm currently seeing worse issues than with the 4. I just turned off mobile data while on WiFi to see if that fixes the "glitch" I read about regarding having both on at the same time

    Turn off wifi when not in use; it's a bug in lollipop. That cell standby drain will cease

    You are missing a point here. I said in 6 hours I lost about 12% then I went to bed again for 2 hours. In that 2 hours I lost another 10%.
    All starts seemed okay screen draining was okay 6% the rest is less. I didn't mind the drain during usage.
    I just reset the phone to factory setting and giving it another go from full charge.

    Also I have a question when you set the phone up it pulls backups from google server then also Samsung proposes to use their backup service. Is there a point of using both? Or have you guys just selected one

    I use both. Samsung's backup only backs up call logs, sms +mms, alarm, email accounts and a couple other things while Google's backup only backs up app data and all your google services stuff.

    I have 53% battery - 2 hours on screen time - 17 hours since full charge. Would you call that good battery life?

    (I just came from an iPhone so I can only compare to that)

    That's acceptable, depending on your signal strength. Biggest issue I'm having is the standby drain, and I've seen many others with the issue. Apple has always been better at standby than android, but the removable battery (and now rapid charge) was able to offset that.

    I have high standby too though. It was actually 15 hours early not 17.

    So now I am at 16.5 hours on battery, 2.5 hours on screen time with 38% battery left and 20% of the battery has been standby.

    Thoughts?

    YES! I got the regular one (not fast charging) free from buying the phone from Best Buy. The package says it was made for the s6 and s6 edge (which I obviously know doesn't matter, but just for reference).

    The last 2 nights... My only two nights with the phone I threw it on the Samsung charger and got the satisfying blue (solid) light and the phone lit up and indicated it was charging. I was so pumped as my first experience with wireless charging... I woke up all excited not to have to pull a wire out both mornings only to see that the blue light on the charger was now flashing and the phone didn't charge.....

    One night you could say my fault... 2 nights I scratch my head. I am using an Otterbox Symmetry (thin-ish) and if it wasn't going to work, I would have thought I wouldn't get the solid blue light and phone indicating it's charging...

    Both mornings I had to throw it in the quick charger and use my note 4 while it charged... Kind of annoyed me.

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

    What I think happened to me is the quick charger isn't keeping the phone charged overnight. I would have to try again to test my theory.

    Looks like I'm now back to play services drain, cell standby seems to have chilled out. At least it's an issue I'm used to
