    My VZ note 5 never makes it through the night if the battery is around 50% or below. Its driving me crazy. Could it have anything to do with Nova?

    Please Help!

    What does Battery usage show? It may reveal an app(s) running, or if cell signal is poor, the radio consuming power.

    It's shouldn't be cell signal, my wife has an one M8 and it makes it through the night no problem.

    There's a lot going on for a phone that is not in use. Cell standby at 17%, may mean that its searching for signal. Clicking on the Cell standby icon should reveal more info and show if there is some time without signal. What is also interesting is the Screen at 11%. Is there an app that lights up or wakes the screen frequently while the phone is not being used?

    Would you mind scroll capturing the whole report? Using the screen write function

    Thank you!

    It seems your stand by and Android system ratios are substantially lower than mine. What am I doing wrong? Do I have a defective device. I'm leaning more on the probability of user error

    My vz note5 shows the same high usage. I have read that verizon note 5's have the poorest standby. I noticed also that facebook and messenger will show up higher than other things, and i dont use them that much. I got rid of messenger and that helped me.

    I am in an area w really good signal, my turbo 2 and my first turbo dont drain as fast, neither did my note 4.
    I still think it has something to do w having verizons advanced calling setup.

    Sent with my white Note5 with nonremovable back and no SDcard!

    DL Gsam. There you will be able to measure the strength of the cell signal and a more detailed list of app usage. Also might want to consider DLing and installing Doze.

    Gsam has a graph that shows signal strength. It's the first icon at the bottom left of the screen and then you choose the phone signal tab. You are not losing signal but low signal strength can help tap your battery. Also you can go to settings/about device/status/sim card status and look at the signal strength. Anything over -100 dbms (triple digits) ain't gonna be helpful. Finally look at the main screen of Gsam and look at 'held awake'. I'm at 2%. If something is tapping your battery it's keeping your phone awake. Doze will shut background apps down while the phone is not in use.

    I just charge my phone over night so I can start the day with a full battery. I've done this with every phone I've had and never had any battery problems.

    This is what mine looks like. My dbms sit at -100. Do you move around alot. Your phone signal fluctuates quite a bit.

    Your phone looks like it's discharging very rapidly....might need to take it to your carrier's local store.

    Root isn't needed, but you would need adb without root

    Hey, it's clearly an app issue. The 63% of app usage is through the roof. Check which apps are draining the battery the fastest. Disable/uninstall them and check again about battery usage. Trust me I've been through this

    Ha! That's me and I'm not complaining. I just asked the OP to post that screenshot. I have mine on a wireless charger so I don't worry about drain and since I've purchased the phone I've been DLing and uninstalling apps. At some point I'll get to a stage where I won't be so active and clear out all the riff raff. BTW you gotta be careful about interpreting the percentages....they all got to add to 100% and some numbers may look big but mean nothing. Like right now I'm at 71% app usage but I'm only draining at 3.5% per hour.Which will take me past one full day on a single charge.

    3.5%??? I'm discharging more than twice as fast, I really don't understand
