    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.

    On this phone, I haven't done anything special. I think it's simply because I have T-Mobile and I get superior signal in my area. I have a T-Mobile tower on the next block over and all through my area.

    I was getting this usage as on day one soon as I restored my backup from my Note 8. I keep LTE on 24/7. brightness on about 55%, location on battery saving and that's pretty much it.

    Nice! I have T-Mobile too. Do you have battery saving on mid or max?

    I don't use it.

    I have an US unlocked S9+ that is on T-Mobile as well that is actually getting even better usage stats then my T-Mobile Note 9.

    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.
    I was about to ask that as well. I charge mine every night, regardless if it's at 20% or 50%.

    In settings under connections, there is a location setting. There are three options. High accuracy will use more battery power. I use the middle option, battery saving. You can turn location off completely but then some apps may start asking you to turn on location in settings so they can work correctly.

    I easily saw all day last night. I'm also going to be seeing all day today as well walking into the day starting at 65%.

    I'll probably lose another 3% in the next half hour since I'm browsing the forum on break.

    This is the first charge / discharge cycle. I took my phone off the plug the first time on Sunday at 2 AM.

    idk how you folks get battery life like this. I'm lucky if I get 9 hours out of mine. I wiped cache partition 3 times. don't want to hard reset. can't figure it out. standby drain stinks.

    I have that problem on my AT&T Note 9 but I blame that on my poor AT&T signal in my area.

    On my T-Mobile Note 9, I can get three days of standby easily with 4-5 hrs usage.

    It could easily be your carriers signal but then we don't know what any of your settings are or how you use your phone.

    So many times I regret buying my AT&T Note 9. It has a habit of switching location accuracy to high which really uses my battery like nothing. I have no doubt it's why my battery life was so bad this week. I was trying to check that setting every day but I forgot about it over the last two weeks.

    My T-Mobile Note never does this on it's own.

    This is the first AT&T phone I've owned since the iPhone 4s all those years ago.

    I have an att version and keep my location accuracy on high. Haven't had an issue with battery drain from it. What did cost me battery was nearby device scanning and network notification until I turned those off.

    Mine is horrible drains too fast. Maybe hard reset will help but wish there was a diagnostic test I can run to find what's causing this. I see everyone getting awesome battery life and I can't get mine to last 12 hours So... All day battery life???-screenshot_20181010-074036_settings.jpegSo...

    My note 9 literally loses battery at the same rate as my iphone x did. I usually take the phone off the charger at 6 a.m. Around 12, the battery is down to the 70s. I work from 8 to 11 so no access to the phone at that point. When I do use the phone, I am checking emails, Instagram, FB, and listening to a podcast on soundcloud. Is anyone else seeing their battery life not last "all day"?
    It's 9.30am. My 4 day old note 9 is on 83% after a full night charge till 7am. I listened to Spotify for half an hour over Bluetooth on the train..... I'm taking a cable everywhere. I might as well use landline.
