    I may reconsider getting the Note 5 again if the S7 next year doesn't meet my needs. Since it has a non removable battery, how often do you charge your battery during the day? Do you find yourself more conscious of the battery level in the Status Bar than ever before? Has anyone gotten through the day on a single charge?

    Wait, per day? This device should be lasting all day and beyond except for with the heaviest users. Most accounts have battery life better than the Note 4.

    At least one full top off per day. I am not a heavy user, but I have work email connected, which has some effect. I don't have the confidence that this phone will go all day, but we all use our phones differently.

    Depends on the day. On days of 10-15 hours SOT and running hotspot, it will have to be recharged, probably a few times.

    Now on days when not using hotspot and say 5-7 hours SOT, it will last the entire day.

    Of course, ymmv, many factors affect battery life.

    I have been following these battery threads on the Note 5 for awhile, but it seems that many users do charge their phones at their desk or home at least once per day. And if their battery level is down to 10-20%, they usually charge it before they leave their house/office. For the ones who can manage on a single charge before bedtime, how do they do it?

    Once per day (usually at night) at the most.
    I installed GSam Battery monitor Pro to see if I had any battery hogs.
    After disabling the carrier stuff and some Samsung things, I find my Note 5 lasts around 30-40 hours on average.

    I can easily make it through the day with plenty left over (Around 20% after 16 hours) but end up charging when I go to bed on my wireless charging pad. I also have a wireless pad at my desk at work that I use here and there during the week, so very rarely do I ever actual plug it in.

    Go to the Battery Thread because there are tips and advice being given, also has to do with WAKE Lock Detector and Package Disabler Pro for disabling lots of bloatware and packages that drain battery. Many users can go a Full Day over. They provide their screenshots and they do Not lie.

    Android system is always the top item under battery for me. I wish there was something we could do about it. I feel like it's eating my battery away.

    Even with heavy usage this battery lasts all day. I top mine off at work throughout the day just because I have a charger in my office and I am just used to throwing it on the charger when not in use. On the days I don't, unplug at 5 am and plug in at 11 pm, still 30% + left in the tank.

    I'll top mine off during the day while at work, but that's only because the signal at work is crap-tastic, and drains the battery faster than normal.

    Otherwise, it comes off the charger when I wake up and goes back on when I go to bed.

    As I have no desire to see how long my phone will last on a single charge, and since I am able to charge my phone almost any time I want, I do just that.

    10-15 hours SOT?? 😮
    Do you work on your phone all day? That's insane.

    One charge per day. And when I plug it in, it's usually between 20-40%.

    I'm quite the power user to be honest when it comes to using my N4. I would probably have to charge it roughly 3 times a day once it hits the lower ten percent of remaining battery life. My days usually start around 7am until whenever I end up going to sleep roughly around midnight. I'm hoping to get much better battery life when I make the jump over to the N5 this weekend.

    I've gone 16+ hours without a charge and could've gotten at least 4-5 hours more. Usually I take it off the charger in the morning and may bump charge it early via the wireless charger at my desk. In my opinion this phones battery life is great.

    I'm charging once a day. I can easily make it through a work day on a single charge.

    I charge every night. If I know I'll be out in the evening late I might. I also bought a 2.0 quick charge car charger so if I'm going out I'll plug in on the drive and get more than I need by the time I get to my destination.

    It gets better everyday.

    So I go about 3/4 day and then charge for 15-20 min on rapid charger and that adds another 4-5 hours. Left hotel at 730am. Charged around 3:30 for 15 min. It's 10pmvand I'm sitting at 51% and did a lot of texting and email today. Not terrible
