    Hello,

    Just curious to see if all you note 5 users use the power saving mode on your device? Does it really help save battery life? Thanks!

    I've never needed to used, I've had my note since launch day and battery has never been an issue for me

    I use it mostly because I play Words With Friends a lot and it drains the battery a lot. With Power Saving mode enabled, I sometimes get 6h30 to 7hrs screen on time if I am not playing WWF.

    I don't.
    I can charge my phone whenever I want, so I have no need to turn off features or see how long it lasts on a single charge.

    Nope, battery life is crap with or without it on.

    I don't use power saver unless I am away from the outlet for an extended period of time. Usually 7 hours SOT is enough to get me to the next charge.

    Battery life for me is quite good. Easily get through a normal workday with 50% or more remaining. Off charger at 0530, and back on around 2200.

    I have used Power Saving mode once after a long day in an area with intermittent signal and was using the GPS and camera frequently.

    Yes, all the time. It makes a difference for me 3.5 hours sot vs 4.5+

    was wondering about that... after several months, the battery life has gone down noticeably. I'll get a replacement spare battery and pop it in. Oh.. wait.. I can't do that anymore.

    Same here. I have a portable charger if I need it, but have only used it once on a busy Saturday, other then that it's for my watch (that battery lasts for days and I forget to charge it).

    I've never used it, nor felt the need to. My phone gets me through the entire day, no problem.
