    I just want to let you guys know my battery experience on the note 5 with t mobile has been horrible compared to my zte zmax which i was able to use a full day and a half almost on only one charge and that phone was only $250!!! Yea that phone is display and looks sucked but hey at least it got me threw more then a day! My battery as of now with the note 5 is at 20% and phone usage has been 9hrs only since i took it off the charge! I need my phone to last me more then that and im still in my 14 days return period and i think im about to return it Do you guys think a ota update will fix the battery issue? What are your battery experience with t mobile note 5?

    There are many possible factors that affect battery life, like the screen resolution/brightness, mobile signal, misbehaving apps, among other things. It'd help to see some battery stats. Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).

    i always let my phone go down to 10-15% and let it charge overnight and then pull it out when i wake up and i had this phone for a week now i dont see any difference. As of now my on screen time is 4hrs 34min and battery is at 16%. cell standby time on 10hrs battery at 15%. Screen brightness is always on auto. Do you think its because i always have amoled cinema on?

    There has been some good discussion within the battery life thread. I would suggest posting in there since we don't need two different ones going on.
