    I have 3 Verizon Note 5 phones.($269 each, thanks to the $400 off promotion)

    I keep one as a wifi-only device(no SIM card inside the phone).

    That one has the best battery life(obviously) and can last over 7 days with wifi in the "always on" mode with daily usage of about 30 minutes.

    Nice. Do you need any other tweaks to get that battery life?

    no tweaks at all...


    I mainly use it to browse the internet or check emails from my couch... and also to answer calls from Skype.

    How much battery life do you get on your other Verizon Note 5s using cellular connection?

    Now we have a baseline of just how much power the cell radio uses. Just wondering if the "screen on" time is much lower since it's not used as much.

    Every radio stack uses power. the more you have running the greater the draw.. Cellular, BT, GPS, NFC, WiFi.

    I must be missing something. The OP's 210 minutes (per week) are less than the 5 hrs SOT I'm getting, running full tilt, hard use, 4G LTE and high speed wifi with current Note 5 phone. I charge twice a day. Batteries do degrade under hard use, I'm on my fourth Note 5, under warranty. This is the best of the four phones. I frankly don't view his use as a baseline. 😏

    I would also ask what runs in background & how often to things sync content?

    This is about right. I use a Note 4 on WiFi sometimes without a sim card in it and the battery will often last 5-6 days. I have an iPhone 6S with no sim in it and it easily lasts 6-7 days. My old iPad Mini 2 will last a full month with no sim in it.

    The problem is with all of these is that notifications will often be delayed for sometimes a day and maybe longer. Sometimes I will hear constant dinging as notifications come in all at once. I'll look to see what they are and they are notifications that came in on an activated phone the day or two before.

    On my Note 5 that I bought in January and use everyday with a sim in it. I get 1-2 days standby with 1-2 hours screen time. I get more screen time on my S7 Edge for some reason. The Note 5 has a problem with run away processes sometimes that will easily burn through 30-40% battery in an hour or two if I don't catch it in time. I have the same app that I know is the problem running on the S7 Edge and it never drains the battery. I don't think I've ever gotten more then 2 hrs screen time on the Note 5. It's about the equivalent to what I get on my Note 4/Note Edge.
