    I have been using my note 5 since launch day and I am using close to 200% on a heavy use day and even lighter use using 100% or bit more. I am only getting 2 hours screen time and 14 hours of usage is what I consider light. And also my include charger won't fast charge sometimes I have to plug in a few times to get it to finally do it. But my moto fast charger always works. Anyone else have these issues?

    We need more information. What carrier? What is using most of your battery in your battery settings page. That screen time and standby time is low compared to my times. I get about 3-4 hrs of screen plus 15 hr standby and have 50% battery left.

    My screen on auto brightness and I have WiFi and Bluetooth on but I'm not going to toggle them all day. I want my WiFi to connect when I get home and my truck connect when I start it up.

    Something I would recommend is an app called Tasker. It doesn't require root to do some task. It's meant to do thing automatically to save time and battery life. Right now on my phone I have it set so when I get home it turns on my WiFi and turns off my data. Then when I leave my house it turns off WiFi and turns on data. Look at YouTube videos and it will help you understand it more.

    For battery life check this link out.
    .

    Hope that helps

    I would suggest that you do a factory data reset and don't install any apps

    Yes a lot of people including me had this issue. If you change the usb wire only not the fast charge adapter. It works. Try it. The usb cable is defective.

    Facebook has been causing a lot of battery drain for some people.

    The not install apps is temporary, to see if you have the same issues when there are no apps.

    If you have the same issue and no apps, that means it I'd a phone issue. If not, it is an app causing the drain then you add apps a few at a time to figure out which one is causing the problem.
