    So how do i fix the battery?so it lasts longer.what settings
    If u change the location setting from high accuracy to battery saber is probably the biggest change u could make. It could be a certain app killing your battery though. Or u watching too much YouTube lol.

    I'm trying to figure out how the first few days I had excellent battery life using my Note and gear s3 watch but than the past few days battery hasn't been so good.

    I find the battery to be good. This is on high performance mode and about 70%+ brightness. All I have done is turn off auto brightness and Always on display, and in settings > WiFi > advanced I turned off adaptive WiFi and put WiFi to never be on during sleep. Before I put the phone away I tend to put all apps to sleep, still not sure how much it helps.

    I've noticed that the battery doesn't tend to do standby well compared to other phones, but when you're using it it does extremely well.
    Exactly how I felt too

    I originally bought the unlocked note 8 for use on at&t and the battery was amazing. I would take it off the charger at 8am and use GPS for about an hour as well as Instagram in the morning and by noon my battery was at 90%. Unfortunately I had to return it as many things didn't work on AT&T like call forwarding and Wi-Fi calling. No call forwarding was a big deal so I exchanged for the AT&T variant and right of the bat battery life is horrible compared to the unlocked version. It's 11:30 and I am at 78% with 58 minutes SOT. At&t seriously does damage to the phones performance with their modifications.

    After two weeks, my battery life has been very good, SOT approximately 6+ hours. I did tweak the settings but did not restrict the phone. I would like to have as promised by the Sammy President... "95% battery after two years". 😉

    Is yours unlocked or carrier branded? If carrier branded which carrier and was the battery bad at first. My unlocked phone had awesome battery from day one. The carrier one pretty bad from day one.

    Attached I tested and the Samsung Gear 3 watch is connected over Bluetooth which apparently destroys the battery . Mind you the first picture is me using my phone pretty heavily, the second I'm lightly using it and 7-8 hours of that time is stand by whole I'm sleeping over night, so realistically it only was actually being used on and off for 9 hours or so.

    Here's what I do
    Step 1: Download Greenify and Purchase the Donation Package
    Turn on Agressive Doze and Auto Hibernate (Note in order to enable this feature you need to enable USB debugging and use a adb compatible Software to allow these feature to work in the app, you need connect, you need to connect your phone to a pc to do this). Also enable Greenify auto hibernate in phone accessibility.
    Step 2 Clear the Cache Partition in the bios of the phone. Do this regularly to help preserve battery.
    Step 3: Purchase and download the BK disabler app so you can disable bloatware and other services on your phone you don't need or use. Also Uninstall any bloatware or apps that can be uninstall out of the box.
    Step 4 go to device manager and put as many apps as you can into always sleep mode (Don't worry it will only put them to sleep when you don't use them)
    Tip 1: Don't use always on display
    Tips 2: Use Auto Brightness.
    Tips 3: Use black wall papers for your device. Black wall papers use less battery.
    Do all these correctly and you can get 6-7 hours of SOT

    I thought the phone automatically put the least-used Apps into suspended mode? Mine gives me daily updates on the least used Apps it has suspended.

    But my early experience of just a few days use is that the battery life is not impressive. I have push email for work, as well as WhatsApp, WeChat and Line running all day - again for work. I'm a heavy user with regular email and call use throughout the day, but have WIFI for part of the day, brightness about mid way. For me, a normal working days is around 12 hours, but the battery seems to last about 9 hours, so I need to find a top-up charge. The charging is very fast, but would be better if I could get through a whole day and just charge at night.

    I could probably disable some features, but that kind of defeats the purpose of having a (very) smart phone. My last phone (Sony Z5) was no better, but my smug Apple-wielding colleagues can manage a full day of similar use on a single charge. Also, a friend with a Samsung A7, who watches Facebook Live all day - can manage 2 days on one charge.

    I am getting pretty insane battery life with my N8. I have location always on high accuracy and screen resolution at the highest setting. I keep brightness below 50 percent and BlueTooth off.
    I spent most of this day on forums and shopping, along with some games. I just love my N8.

    I'm 2 months in with mine. The battery appears to be the same as day one... awesome. I can throw a lot at my Note 8 and it is extremely efficient with its battery usage.
