    I have had the LG G4 for a week now and the battery life is sooo bad! I have one week left to return it. How is the battery life on the note 5?

    Way better than the g4. I got 2.5 to 3 hours of screen time on the g4. I get anywhere from 5.5 to 7 hours of screen time on my note 5. I'm on Verizon.

    Mines been great so far, had it about a month, definitely better than my Note 3.
    Only time I've had the battery drain kind of fast is with live wallpaper...

    It has to be something wrong with the g4 software. When I had the g4 I would have Google services using 10 to 12% of my battery. With my note it's 1 or 2% on average. I actually really like the g4 software but I also like the s pen.

    I found the G4 to be really great with common tweaks used. And the standby battery time...just wow.

    That said the Note 5 has been equal or slightly better, with the caveat being less tweaks implemented by myself.

    Really everyone I know on T-Mobile isn't having issues. The last update I did messed up something when it updated, Samsung is looking at that phone.

    I've consistently have charged every day to every other day.

    Many of us are using package disabler pro that is only for Samsung phones, that allows you to disable all bloatware you want.
