    I have gone through all of the battery threads and still can't figure this out. Something has to be wrong. I'm on a Verizon note 5. Has anyone else had this issue where you lose 13% battery in 3 hours without touching your phone? All Verizon bloat is disabled. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I did. That's about when it got worse. And I did a clean update as well. Factory reset first.

    Give the update a week to settle in. Your battery usage doesn't seem to be very high at all (for the things the battery screen measures).

    There is a new app optimization under the battery options, set all apps to optimize (not auto / in 3 days) and youll see your battery life improve big time

    Verizon doesn't have this option I don't believe.

    It's built into the OS Brah, did you check under settings / battery?

    Don't see an App Optimization option in Battery/Settings either. 5.1.1 on Verizon build AOJ2.

    GSAM may be an option to help show more details about which app(s) or process(es) are consuming battery. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....bbm.pro&hl=en

    Yes, I looked there. It isn't in my settings. 5.1.1 build AOJ2 does not have it.

    He is right. Verizon disabled a bunch of stuff on the phone. Including auto restart and this.. so irritating!

    I'm on Sprint and I don't have the app optimization setting either, but I also haven't received the update yet. I notice that my battery drains semi-fast while I'm actively using it, but maybe I'm just paranoid.

    This is really stupid! Why would they disable such a crucial an important feature that would help the battery life tremendously? My battery life was horrible before this I used to charge the phone like 3 times a day even without touching it! there was a serious battery drain. Now with this, and all apps set to auto optimize, they all still work but I only charge me phone every like 30 hours so that's 1.5 days and my usage is still the same, actually I make a 1 hour phone call everyday now so it's great

    Your signal is one issue for sure.

    Also Verizon seems to have an issue with standby using a lot of battery when WiFi is on. There is a thread about it somewhere in this forum.

    Mine seems worse after that last update too. I even did a total reset just in case I had done something to use up battery quickly. I figured messing with launchers and themes had screwed up my battery drain but even in all default it seems to drain quickly. Not horrible battery life but definitely draining faster.

    That's how I do it as well. Then after I reinstall all my apps I also reboot. I always update on a full charge as well.

    That says it requires root. I'm not rooted and hope to not have to.

    I can help you! First check if you location is on. If it is that's good and if not turn it on then check Google location history. Turn that off and it should help your battery life.

    Here is the video that I saw it from.


    Hope that helps
