    The battery on this is one word. LONG. It lasts for freakin ever. There are days I barely use the phone and it's still in the 80s when I got to bed. There are (more) days where I use it a lot, constantly almost, and it's only in the 50's at bed time. I almost consider not charging it just to see where it ends up some nights. But then I'm power greedy.

    Consider this post cliche for this thread, I would consider myself a power user, but I am getting nowhere near the battery life of my iPhone 6 Plus. I'm getting about 4 hours of SOT in the past few days, where the iPhone got over 6 hours constantly. It doesn't help that I've heard that the potential for this battery is much higher than my results. I dont do much either, mostly just basic social media, Spotify, YouTube, and Netflix. During a normal 8 hour school day the phone usually goes down to about 50's and 60's. Today for instance I had 15 hours of usage and 2 hours of SOY. Not horrendous, but certainly nowhere near some peoole' s phones in this thread. If it helps at all I have disabled AOD, found no "power hungry" apps that were hogging the battery and have a Verizon module that was manufactured in Korea on September 10th. I love the phone but for it to he perfect it would just need that better battery life, and of course the whole exploding thing to not exist

    Is your GPS off? That uses a lot of juice.

    How do you know you got 6 hours of SOT? iPhone didn't have a way to measure that.

    I loved my iphone 6s+ when I had it but I never knew what I got for SOT.

    I'm getting 4.5-6.5 on my Note 7 and my usage on this device and patterns are what I did with iPhone.

    I think one of the reasons people focus on battery on the Note 7 is precisely because Note 7 let's you look at everything going on with battery when iPhone doesn't go that deep, just showing you broad general use.

    I would unplug my iphone at 530am and at 7pm had 10-15% left.

    I unplug my Note 7 at 530 and at 7 I am down to 5-10%. Since I take notes on my Note 7 I find I'm using it more which can explain that as well.

    Good news though. When I do get lower than I like a 10min quick charge adds 15% if needed. That is a far cry from the 3% I might get from iPhone if needed.

    I've always figured that Usage was SOT, unlike Android where it shows the time off the charger.

    I've done practically everything imaginable to increase the battery, including the suggestions in this thread.

    I'm kinda baffled by this battery performance.. One time I got 6.5 hrs of SOT and then it's 5 hrs and now it's like 4:45...so I'm not sure why I went from great to a little bit below average. Any suggestions... I'll post a couple screens. Note 7 - Battery Life (Replacement Devices)-3820.jpgAttachment 241805

    Is that screen wake time a problem?
