    Is 3 hours SOT with 40% battery left good? 14 hours total battery use.

    What percentage should device idle be at?
    Depends on how much you use your device.

    While in your battery stats, click on Android System. Then, there will be a toggle for Allow background activity.

    This is my first full day with the phone. Works for me. Not real heavy usage today, but didn't plug it in, either, like I would my Note8.

    Only way to really know is to try it out for a day or two and see if you have any issues or if battery life is better. People on here say it doesn't negatively impact performance. I, personally, didn't toggle it off yet as mine was only at 5%.

    I'm at 51% with 13 hours battery and 2 hours 20 minutes SOT.

    I've had my phone for 13 days. Today was my worst battery day :o 14 hours 8 minutes on battery. 4 hours 20 minutes of SOT. 7% battery left. That's pretty bad isn't it?

    yeah that's pretty bad, always happens with my samsung phones, Note 8 and S9+ both started with 6 hours SOT and after a few weeks I was only getting like 4.30 SOT max. I love samsung features and I LOVE the screens they put in their flagships but the fact that my oneplus 6 ($500 phone) was noticeable faster and smoother and had about the same, if not better, battery life with only 3300 mAh is just ridiculous.

    Also OP6 charged from 20% to 70% in less than 30 minutes WHILE heavy using the phone.

    If I try to do that with the Note 9 it only charges like 4% in 30 minutes with the "fast charger". I must turn off the screen and still charges pretty slow compared to the OP6 charging with screen on.

    I'm considering trying out the Mate 20 Pro if I can get a good deal and comes with QHD samsung display

    4200 mah, 7 nm efficient and specially optimized for that device soc, 70% charged in 30 minutes sounds great:

    After one month, I'm averaging 26:30 with 5:28 screen time. That's with WQHD+, auto brightness, all standard features enabled, no power saving (except adaptive WiFi), no "debloating" etc. Just using the phone. On previous Notes, I'd get 15-16 hours with maybe 3 hours screen time.

    Yeah but I try not to actually work at it

    I'm a computer programmer so I sit at my desk all day. I always have messages for web open in a browser so I dont have to keep looking at my phone.

    Most of my phone use is between 5-11pm when I'm not at work. I do use my phone at lunch and when not at my desk though.

    Those are the extrapolated times until battery exhaustion, as given by GSam Battery Monitor. Usually I charge my phone each night. But the few times I've let the battery run down to zero (or close to zero), the times have been consistent with those extrapolations. Yesterday, I finished the day at 50% charge after 14:06 with 3:01 screen time.

    It may or may not be depending on what your settings are and what you were doing for that 2.5 hrs.

    This is what my usage is on my T-Mobile Note 9 now. I can easily get another hour at least of usage.

    So... All day battery life???-screenshot_20180929-143131_settings.jpg
