    Maybe you should try a factory reset, then set up your device as new.

    did you set up from scratch or use smart switch ?
    is it snapdragon or exynos model ?
    easier to help if you include as much info as possible

    I had the same problem with my galaxy s8 plus as soon I would take it out of charge I would loose about 5% in 10 min. I sold that and got a iPhone X it's amazing and the battery takes me for over a day.

    My battery life is excellent. Loses maybe 1-2% overnight. I use my Note8 normal for me and end my 12 hour day with 50-60% left. Your experience in not typical.

    I'd start by checking your apps since everyone else's seems fine. some app could be constantly pulling or pushing info out. a FR will do that too and then you can load them one by one to see what's going on. did you sync your apps instead of installing them?

    Have you checked how much you lose per hour in airplane mode from 100%?

    You're not really saying how much you lose in standby but for me overnight or idle I lose 1% every hour or two and I would consider that normal unless someone wants to chime in. Do a factory reset then charge your battery and see how it drains for a few hours. If you're talking something like 5% or more per hour on a clean phone then I'd lean toward a battery issue.

    I've been happy with battery life on mine.

    Battery life is beyond excellent. I started out with power saving on medium and have slowly turned battery saving features off and battery life is still excellent. I am now on full rez, full cpu, background data on and always on display off. The OP must have fubarred his phone or he's a troll. Most battery life issues are caused by people who install poorly designed apps without monitoring or limiting them.

    Turn off the always on display if it's on that should save you a ton of battery, with always on display on my phone uses 20 percent of the battery in 10 hours its a joke. I love having it on but it kills my battery. Without it on my battery is a beast it's excellent.

    My N8 gets me well into Day 2. Just amazing.

    One thing to consider: after you do a factory reset, manually install just the apps you need - no more. The combination of limiting apps and making sure that everything installs fresh on your N8 provides a reliable baseline on which to troubleshoot issues on any phone.

    I don't know about some of the posters but I recharge from 40% my Note 8 at least twice a day, its that hard a user of a phone. I'm getting approx 5.5 hours SOT, then again, the phone is only 2 months old. I mentioned before and I'll post again... Sammy's President saying we'll have 95% battery life after two years... complete b.s. lie and deception. Knowing this phone a little and previous Sammys... this 95% or even close will never happen, unless you baby the phone for one hour a day. 😏

    I haven't seen that kind of a problem with my AOD. When I check my battery usage, the AOD accounts for only 1 percent of the battery usage.

    Now a few things I do, may help. When I am not using my phone I turn the phone screen down, or place it in a pocket, which turns off the AOD. I keep a clock face on the AOD and avoid using a picture there which might consume more power. My brightness level is generally much less than 50 percent. Although you can't set the AOD brightness separately, it's level parallels parallels that of the main display. Of course, if brighter than it needs to be, the more juice it uses.

    Having said this, I would bet that that OP's problem is being caused by a rogue app. He should use the phone in SAFE MODE for a day. If battery life is still bad, I would take it in for a battery replacement or phone exchange under your warranty. If battery life is good in Safe Mode, you will need to look for the rogue app. That app is more likely to be one you added that is running in the background, such as a security app, a battery saver, a launcher, animated wallpaper, etc. . Often these background apps do not show up in the battery usage statistics. Eliminate all of these and see if there is any improvement.

    I had the same issue with one of my note 4 batteries. It dropped from 100% to about 90% very fast, then it drained as normal.

    Android Battery test
    Recently my son questioned whether or not he needed to replace the battery in his Samsung S6 because he was having difficulty getting through the day with a single charge. The cost to replace the battery is on the order of $60, and we wanted to try to decide whether or not the existing battery was weak. The Samsung battery analyzer indicated that the batter is good, but we decided to perform a quantitative test. We have three Samsung S6 phones in our household so we devised a simple test, using Flashlight+, a free App. Here is a description of our test:

    Starting with nearly-charged phones, we recorded the initial percent charges, and we used the Flashligh+ App to turn on the flashlights. We waited about 30 minutes, and recorded the percent charges again. Then we turned the flashlights back on, and recorded the percent charge after another half hour or so.

    This should be a pretty good test, assuming that the Flashlight+ app consumes virtually all of the total battery discharge whenever the flashlight is on.

    The following results are for our three Samsung S6 phones. The first two phones were purchased new about two years ago. Both were manufactured for use with AT&T, but they are used wit Consumer Cellular as our provider. The third phone was recently purchased used. It is a T-mobile phone.

    Time 0 min 35 min 58 min
    MRI 100% 58% charge (42% depleted) 33% charge (67% depleted)
    GAI 100% 66% charge (34% depleted) 43% charge (57% depleted)
    DBI 95% 61% charge (34% depleted) 37% charge (58% depleted)

    On the basis of this small sample, two phones lost about 60 percent of their charge per hour. The third phone lost about 70 percent. We have tentatively concluded that it is probably not cost-effective to have the batteries replaced in any of these phones yet, but would be interesting to hear about results from other users.

    10 hours off the charger, 3+ hrs SOT yesterday, and I still had 60% left. This phone has the best battery life I've ever seen, since I started using a smartphone in the early 2000s (Treo 300).

    Why would anyone respond to a thread with the only information being "my battery life sucks."

    Why does it suck?
    How are you using your phone?
    What's draining the battery?

    OP doesn't want help in figuring out the problem.
