    This is my Note 5 since rooting the phone. Standby time is amazing and even with this much standby time, I'm getting 4-5 hrs screen time on it. I was using my S7 Edge most of the time last night and I had no reason to use the Note 5 much at all so it's been sitting there most of the time since 2PM Monday.

    New note 5 ATT stock non rooted owner and surprised that I unplugged last night at midnight at 100% but when I woke up at 7am it was down to 80%. All apps were closed, phone on wifi and sitting by bed. Is this normal or what's going on?

    Is normal, If the phone is new. You need at least a week to start seeing correct battery life

    I have an AT&T Note 5 and my battery life has gotten horrible. According to GSam I have used 21% in 1h 38m. Android System seems to be the biggest battery hog culprit. I don't know why it is so horrible but my iPhone 6s Plus was never this bad and I am starting to miss the battery life on that phone. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Besides Android System, what else is going on with apps running? Are Google Photos backing up, or other core Android OS activities running when you see an increase in battery consumption? I've seen that increase Android System. GSam can help provide more clues. Cell signal strength, screen brightness level, and screen on time are other factors that can influence battery life.

    I use my phone the way most people use their tablet or laptops. I don't think it's reasonable to expect usage like that to last forever on battery. I charge my phone whenever I want as I see no reason to see how long it can laston a single charge.

    Thanks. I can't see the scrolling screenshots that well. 14hrs and 4hrs screen on appears to be the average. Has Android System always been that level since you've had the phone?

    I don't think it's beet that high since I've gotten the phone but honestly I haven't monitored it that close until recently.

    There might be a way in GSam Preferences, but have not experimented with the various settings to know if that's possible.

    I did find it and I reset and also deleted the facebook app going to see what happens with that. I know everyone says it is a huge drain on battery so going to use the phone a few days without it and then use it again and compare. So far it seems to be quite a bit better today without it. We will see though.

    Good. I don't use Facebook, so immediately disabled that. Will be interesting to see if the app was causing some of the problems.

    I have seen a notable improvement in performance and battery life on the Note5 Since the marshmallow update. I'm a seriously heavy user. Also, my bluetooth range has increased about 3 more meters.

    Jesus, facebook is eating your battery. I use it a lot and it never takes up 31%. I would reinstall or disable and remove updates. Here's mine from today, admittedly I was only a heavy user today and not quite a power user today. My SOT was frequent but i don't know the exact I forgot to check maybe 2 hours. I was only at 3/4 brightness though before 1pm, full brightness after that. Note 5 battery life sucks - How many are having to charge their phones more than once a day?-screenshot_20160427-162427.jpg

    Are you all not using doze mode it should detect automatically which cuts the system into a sleep mode so that you do no get this drain overnight? I currently am on the N920C model on ATT network so it has the marshmallow update since the update I have not had any battery draining issues at night.

    Yeah Facebook and Snapchat has killed my battery all along, it's a huge addiction and it takes most of my battery on a daily basis. What's your average SOT by the time your phone hits 15%?

    Are you using the power saving mode on your Note 5? Also using auto brightness and turning off sync helps exponentially! If none of this works, I'd disable the Facebook app during peak times and just use Facebook through your Chrome browser during those times when you need your battery to last the most.
