    I'm losing 5% overnight. It's been great. When you check battery usage, what is using the battery overnight?
    I can't post a photo yet because I don't have 10 posts.

    The biggest usage is coming from Android OS.
    When did you factory reset?

    Does anyone else keep Location turned on? I find it very helpful in locating news, restaurants etc. In my area but want to know does it drain your battery?

    I keep it on. If it has an effect I don't really notice it and it's not enough to cause me to change my usage.

    No problem. I am sure someone else will chime in and tell you the exact opposite though. That seems to be the way it is. I think the apps you install and what you are doing on your phone play the biggest role in battery life. That's why some get great battery life and others don't.

    I agree. I try to turn off what I can to preserve battery life but without taking away all the good features of the GNote5.

    I keep mine on, but not set to high accuracy unless I really need it. I think it drains some, but like you, I prefer to use those features pretty regularly so it is worth it to me.

    Anyone seeing spontaneous reboots? My Note 5 will reboot 4-5 times a day at random times even when just charging. I have no idea what is causing this.

    I have around 2 to 3 reboots a day also, plus when I'm streaming iheart radio or any streaming music service, once my screen times out or I turn it off manually, it will stop playing or completely close the app since this 6.0 update. Listening to music on my phone is a joke now.

    Anybody who's having problems and has not done a factory reset, I strongly advise to do one and wipe cache partition manually.

    If you have Bluetooth on turn it off and see if that works. It works on my wife's note 5 but I'm gonna try rebooting my router next

    I saw in another thread today in the Note 5 forum where someone discovered that uninstalling the iHeart Radio app stopped the random reboots. Might be worth trying. If I come across that thread will post it here for reference.

    I will give that a try to see if that solves it and will let you guys know if that's the ticket. Thanks Trees

    Power the phone OFF, wait a minute, then volume up-home Power simultaneously until the blue android comes up. He will go away and then you will be in the factory recovery.

    In case he's using the stupid app where you can't see pictures.

    Question for you Verizon people, I'm on AT&T so it still may not happen, but do you have the ability to fine turn the auto brightness with the Marshmallow Update?

    Is the system ui tuner available on the note 5 or is that only for the nexus phones? I can't get it to work
