    With all the above said... Does anybody use doze? Or is that irrelevant?
    Are you talking about the App or the built in Android Doze? Because the built in one is automatic. If the phone is untouched for 1hr, it will start to Doze. You have no control over it. You can put some stuff in the whitelist but that doesn't always work.

    You can use Greenify to trigger it at 10min instead of 60min, to get better standby times.

    You must be viewing your settings menu as a standard list.

    Open settings, push the 3 vertical buttons on the top right, click view as simplified list, device maintenance will be about 2/3 of the way down.
    Gee now I feel stupid LOL Thanks that worked and I never thought of doing that.

    Really? Keep Wi-Fi off during sleep?

    I'm assuming that they LTE radio has gotten very efficient over Wi-Fi now days?
    My home wifi is off at night, I'm on metered wifi so I turn it off when I'm not using it. I have unlimited data on all phones in the household, no need for wifi to be on all the time. Really.

    Depends. Mine is metered, but only for speed. I get throttled after I reach a set amount but it's not a big deal because the throttled speed is still enough for me to stream 480p while my kid brother is playing DoTa2.

    I'm in the middle of nowhere, it's either Hughesnet (the latency is horrible) ditched them after 3 years or Sprint. Now we have OTA with Sprint, 30 gigs/month. It only matters when the grandkids are over with wifi devices. Like I said, we have unlimited on our phones. I screen mirror from my phone to the TV when we want to watch something online.

    Oh yes I forgot about the awful caps on satellite internet. I grew up in the country and that's the only part I hated was not having internet. But luckily it was before it became such a 'must have'. I remember having to buy a external controller bases modem and having to sign on all night to download patches for games... not fun. I even played World of Warcraft on dial up. I got those patches from my friend at work. It's still like that out there.

    Turn off auto brightness, turn screen brightness to 0%, turn screen resolution to 720 and make as much as you can be a black or dark backround. Turn off always on display. I'm getting 20 hours between charges easy.
    AKA............sell this phone and get a tracfone

    I tend to get 200-300 emails an hour so I assume this is about right.

    Don't forget when you go to see Device Manager to refresh your battery, storage and memory, something I do constantly because I can set it on my edge panel two thumb swipes and I've done it, you can set which apps will always stay asleep until you actually call them up.

    This will save you some battery.

    Go to Device Manager > battery > scroll down > select apps to always be asleep > pick which apps you have no need to be running in the background draining battery.

    Doze isn't something you choose to use or don't choose to use. It's there, built in, and just does things.

    Yeah that's the app. Totally unnecessary considering the built in data saver option does the exact same thing.

    Off charge around 6.45am, can't use phone much between breaks at work but some light internet browsing during breaks, few texts and a few calls and power saving to mid and here is the result, very pleased, but now the weekend is here it's gonna get some serious usage
