    I never have had Facebook app issues either. Always super low on the GSAM list (along with Messenger). I still removed mine though because I figured maybe something in the Facebook or Messenger app was causing my Android System reading to be sky high but nope. I really need to add those apps back.

    Wish I could say the same about any overnight drain though. Usually around 10-15% overnight for me. Not sure why. I'm on wifi at home too. *shrug*

    My battery life on this phone is incredibly inconsistent for having generally light, consistent usage patterns. I'm really not sure what to make of it. Whatever.
    I usually take my Note 5 off the charger just before I leave for work everyday. I don't get to use it for about the first two hours after I get to work. When I do get to use finally use it, the battery is usually down to somewhere between 90-90%. It seems to slow down on that drain somewhere around that rand in battery percentage.

    I am using my Note Edge to do some testing in running some ROMs that have all the bloat removed. I have DOUBLED my usage on this phone as well as standby times. I am thinking of doing the same thing to my Note 5 eventually. I can leave it overnight and the battery graph looks like a straight line across when I do wake up. I think it barely loses 1% over night. Removing all that T-Mobile preinstalled garb seems to be helping.

    I have owned that Note Edge for a year now and have not replaced the two batteries I alternate between each day.

    I have my photos set to backup only on WiFi. If there are other apps that are set or designed to sync or update over WiFi, that can consume battery. It's easy to forget about which apps are set for WiFi sync only, and if the phone is not on the charger overnight, then to be expected that would result in some phone system resource usage which in turn consumes battery.

    I have to charge mine during the day too. I love this phone, except the battery. I used to have an iPhone 6s plus, and I miss the battery life, but nothing else. If the battery life was better, this phone would be perfect

    I take it off my wireless charger at 8am and put it on at 1am with about 20% left. It's 17 hours of medium duty use. I don't play heavy games or watch movies but otherwise I use it continuously. Never need to charge during the day. No complaints here.

    Yeah I know how to check my battery usage, however I just didn't see any direct battery stat that showed screen on time. GSAM shows a screen on time but it's not in sync with my settings menu.

    I am a heavy user. Mostly via wifi, not 4g.
    Sometimes I charge the phone 2 and 3 times per day.
    I have an average 5.30-6 hours screen on time.

    I'm on my phone, heavy user, prefer it to my laptop, from 4:00 to 23:00.

    I'll say one thing... thank you, you know who, for 2.0 Quick charging!

    Usually, the phone gets charged during the evening while listening to music, tv, or reading.

    Then it gets charged midway through the workday on the quick charge car charger.

    So usually, two solid charges, from 30-40% usually to 100% or there abouts.

    I don't know how long the battery will last, but in four months, it's already not keeping the same charge, as expected, as when new or nearly new.

    Achilles heel of the sealed Samsungs... their sealed battery!

    with full of the charge 100% i am going to work.IN every one hour it reduces 5% of battery without using my phone and I am game lover and i am playing games continuously 2 hrs that time battery surely reduces 65%-70 of the battery drains.It's huge one and i am waiting to change the mobile
    So you get to play games for two hours while at work? Playing games for two hours means that the screen is probably one most of that time, and games are resource intensive so they will draw heavily upon the Note 5's CPU, GPU and related hardware and operating system components that are required to run games. In turn that will use battery. That is normal and to be expected.

    I will offer my Note 5 workweek usage pattern. I use it to check emails, text, play music (not streaming) when not in meetings, and light web browsing (on break) during the workday. Screen On (per GSAM) average is 3hrs, 5 minutes. Screen is always set to Auto Brightness. Phone is off charger @ 0530, and I'm usually at 60-65% battery left when putting back on charger around 2200. Cell signal quality is OK in my part of the building, and that probably contributes to the radios working harder than if my area was not deeper inside the building.

    I think it comes down to a variety of factors including cell signal quality, screen on time, screen brightness level, location services, Bluetooth and WiFi on/off, apps running in background, and apps that are actively in use.

    I am dealing with the dreaded Android OS problem. My phone drains 20% overnight doing nothing. That is where the iPhone is great, I have no fear I am going to wake up with a dead phone if it is off the charger, but with the Note I cannot trust it.

    I did order an edge so hopeful that Marshmallow fixes any remaining issues.

    I have only had my Note 5 a week, but I can't complain at all. The first night I had the phone it drained from 80% to 30% overnight and I was worried. I am still not sure what caused that, but I cleared cache and rebooted the phone and it's been great since then. I don't need it to last all day, but it does. I have left it unplugged and I go from 100% at 6am to about 25-30% at 9:30pm. That is more than enough for me. Then on top of that fast charging is crazy fast. I have a fast charger at home, work and in my car. I compared fast charging on the Note 5 to regular charging my 6s Plus and it wasn't even remotely close. I started charging my Note 5 at 50% and the 6s at 75%. The Note 5 got back to 100% and the 6s Plus was at 95%, only gaining 20% points in the same time it took the Note to move 50%. That's not to say the 6s Plus has a bad battery. It actually lasts slightly longer than the Note 5. I am just very impressed by fast charging.

    Bigger batteries are always good and I hope they increase the size in the Note 6, but I have no complaints about the Note 5 at all.

    I am on my phone aprox.10-12h per day. But I never let the battery drain to 0.
    I usually charge it from 40% to 90%

    Ok I have seen arguments both ways but how many are having to charge their Note 5 more than once a day? I am averaging plugging it up about 3 times a day. Literally within 4 hours of being at work and very light use the battery drops below 50%.
    Flashing a custom rom solved my issue. I use to get 3.5 to 4 hours of sot now i can get 5.5 to 6 hours of sot. Orgia rom+ modified stock kernel .

    Well, hopefully the Note 6 will have removable battery. I love not being tethered to a charging port.

    Hi, I have a question here. Is it good to charge the note 5 battery when it reach 25-35% and charge it until 1005%? Or is it better to use 40-80 charging tactic?

    Try clearing the cache partition, things like email and weather, and location update intervals can drain battery. For email i use push, weather 3hours or more. If you reset your phone dont add all your apps back right away. By adding them slowly over a week or so you can see which one is causing drain. But after reset you should see significant improvement, before adding apps.
