    I should have said 'scanning for devices'. But nevertheless, I'm on Sprint, I don't know what variant you have, your settings may be different.

    Huh? There's no setting I can see called Connections.

    On my Verizon Note it is settings > location > improve accuracy > wifi scanning

    Weak signal areas alone can impact battery life by up to about 40%. That is a lot of weight for variability. Especially if apps are using data in the background, no matter how slight.

    After a few days, the battery life seems to greatly improve. I also disabled KNOX with Package Disabler Pro and my Android System usage dropped by 10%, from the upper 20s/low 30s to high teens and low 20s.

    The packages I disabled were "KNOX" and "KnoxAppsUpdateAgent."

    I turned off wifi scanning, that's a big one. BT is off unless I'm using it. Location is off when I'm home. I use package disabler pro and disabled a bunch of Sprint and Samsung stuff like the health tracker, Gear apps and Fipboard. Sync is on for Google apps but no sync for FB or Twitter.

    This is all of the exact same stuff I did for the Note 5 in order to get 2.5 hours of SoT. I couldn't understand how people were getting 5 hours SoT with the Note 5, and I even FDR that phone. I haven't had to do that with this one.
    2.5 hrs with note 5? Seriously? On note 5's worst days it gives 4 hrs of SOT.. min 3.5 hrs.. #Surprised

    Absolutely true. And I did 2 FDR, nothing helped. The reason I decided to take a chance was because of the positive posts that everyone was posting about great battery life despite the 3k battery. I never got more that 3.5 hours at best, at the time I turned it back in this week, it was down to 2.5 hours. I had no qualms about returning it and I keep all of my phones but it wasn't worth paying $475 to keep it. #Disappointed

    KInd of interesting that battery life is calculated by average of last several days usage rate... Guess that means that it takes a few days for the battery life to completely show a change in power usage settings?

    It's weird.... first week it seemed like I burned through more battery but I chalk that up to trying out all sorts of apps and getting a feel for the device since it's my first Note. Since then I've factory reset the phone to clear out all the remnants and start fresh. Pretty good since then. I've been on the commuter for the past hour browsing the forums and blasting my music through Bluetooth headphones. I'm still at 90%.

    I'm becoming frustrated with my battery issues.

    Yesterday I noticed that my n7 has been charging at a snail's pace, from 10% to 11% after an hour of being plugged into my car charger. At first, I figured my car charger may be crapping out, but I connected the phone to the Samsung OEM fast charger last night before bed and I woke up with only a 39% charge.
    The phone is just over a week old. Should I reset or exchange ?

    that sounds like hardware issue. I would exchange

    I think that Exynos is better (power efficient) when it comes to battery life & day-to-day performance. Gaming experience would be slightly better on Snapdragon (since it is paired with Adreno GPU).
    But people using Note 7 with Snapdragon are also getting around average of 5 hours of SOT easily. Is the signal strength strong in your area ? Maybe compare it with a friend in another area (check dBm value of signal strength in Settings->About phone). Other factors like screen brightness, no. of sync actions (for e.g., Facebook sends a lot of notifications all the time during the day, if you have kept the settings on), GPS signal, etc.
    Change Location mode to Power Saving & switch on GPS only when required / requested by an app.

    P.S.: 1) Mere numbers about the estimate / battery usage of device don't mean much all the time; what matters is
    the real-world usage.
    2) Calibrate the battery of your phone by one charge-discharge cycle (Google it for more info) & give few days
    for battery life to settle down (consistent).

    Don't get this. My Android system is high. Using 25-30% overall. Now maybe not a big deal.

    However I did disable Knox and Knox update agent with Package Disabler Pro. But these two still show up at bottom of Android System when I select it.

    What gives ?
