    I think I saw a post where you said you did a smart switch. I hate to say this but I'm in the camp that a clean, like new install is the best way to go. I did smart switch w Galaxy s7 to Note and was experiencing minor annoyances. I then fdr and set up from scratch...all the annoyances went away.

    I realize that was an S7 to Note...but I decided to set the new Note up from scratch as well. The only issue I had was not getting the tone when using the "ok Google" command but rolling back the Google app one update seems to have fixed it. I also appear to be running the beta of Google so that might have to blame as well.

    As far as battery life goes, I feel I've barely put mine down since getting it so I STILL don't know what a real day would be like but it definitely has the same if not better battery life. No complaints here.
    I totally hear you and I generally never do transfers but my old phone was running great. I did not have a lot of junk on it and the apps had not been on for more than three weeks or so. That said, it was not even Smart Switch that I used. I turned on my new phone and it asked if I wanted to back everything up by tapping the backs of both phones. It worked so fast, I was really surprised.

    My battery is a bit better today. I turned off my Square chip reader because I am not using it right now and I uninstalled a few new apps because I was getting an occasional ad after the phone was asleep for a while. I have never had full screen pop up ads on my phone. Hopefully these modifications will help.

    So I made a mistake thus morning when I posted. I actually have had my phone off the charger since last night around 11. Here is where I'm at now. I know it's better than my returned note but what do you all think?

    Does anyone remember those replacement devices some stores had before the government got involved...i bet those were the none V2 versions that some people have now.......stores had to send them back for more safety checks..if you can get a V2 version get that .....becuz the battery life has definitely improved dramatically in my experience

    I am now at 92% after taking off charger 1 hour ago. 32min of screen time with WiFi calling on. This feels way too fast to me. Am I wrong?

    I dunno....I'm not one to cripple my devices to get battery life. As a normal Joe, I just cant see that much SOT out of the box. Maybe if you cripple (okay, "tweak") it but I'd rather just turn it on and go. I do have auto brightness but that's about it.
    Lemme guess...your a prior Apple user?....android is all about tweaking...😀

    The new battery on the Replacement Note 7 is Fantastic.
    Wondering if it is the actual Battery or that latest update?
    My battery life is running well over 24 hrs.

    Battery life is great until using very long in a weak signal area. The Note 7 does not appear to have very good LTE radio reception, so has more weak signal areas than some current devices.

    I wish there were a threshold that could be set to auto turn the LTE off if a certain low dBm level. You would still be able to make calls and text, but a lot less battery drain.

    If in a medium to good signal area the Note 7 has great battery life. Today while out, I was reminded about Note 7 reception and battery life was not as good.

    That article apparently took the same info that was trolled from forums. Media seems to have no shame or accountability.

    I am dubbing it the Jeep Guy Effect.

    No placebo effect here. My replacement Note 7 is faster more responsive than my first one. I got 6.5 hours of SOT yesterday. T-Mobile users got a 409MB software update that had optimizations and enhancements. Look around here at the numerous threads and posts of people saying the same things.
    I'm also with tmobile and the best I can do is 5:15 of sot and about 19 hrs total.. Not
    Sure how you or others squeeze more than 6:30 sot out of their phones

    Who is on their phone 6.5 hours a day? Anyways, I am not willing to leave mine off the charger all night to see how much mileage I can get on one charge.
    It also depends on what you are doing with your phone as well. If you are just reading forums or web pages and you're on wifi, you will probably get a lot more SOT than someone playing games or streaming on theirs. Everyone has different usages. I know when I golf with the GPS on in a sketchy reception area, my battery is going to drain a lot quicker than sitting on my couch just replying to AC forums.

    Best I can get is 3hours...So not sure how others are getting 4,5,6 hour of sot. I have done the same tweaks posted here. Really starting to wonder if I got a bad or subpar phone batch.

    Weak signal areas will cut battery life down big time. If in a good signal area and still weak battery life, not sure what it is.

    3 hours is pretty bad. Everyone should be getting at the minimum 4 hours of SOT, if anything 5 hours. Hell even my old note 4 gets around 4 hours SOT.
