    Back to the original postings. I don't think I've read 1 good thing about good battery life and lollipop in the same sentence since it dropped.
    Well, not Sammy related, but since you said it -

    "I get a good battery life on Lollipop".

    But I have a Z3, so I got a good battery life on KitKat.

    Seriously though, I've seen a definite 5-10% increase in battery life since I flashed the ROM 2 weeks ago, allowing for the inevitable early placebo effect.

    FB sync is off. All of that time is from me browsing Facebook while also using YouTube and iHeart occasionally.
    That is respectable numbers for the usage. Don't listen to anyone that says otherwise.

    Show us another as she is at 15% or less if you can please.

    I'm keeping my eye on the S5, Note4, and here in the S6 forums. More and more posts of lollipop improving battery life substantially once they do a factory reset.

    i did a cache wipe, seems to be sufficient. Hardreset will always be the last resort I guess.

    That's with about 1.5h of screen time. That translates to 4.5h if run down to 1%.

    I think Facebook is taking some toll on his stand by time. Will be better if FB sync is turned off.
    Thank goodness I don't participate in FaceBook, just a little more juice in the battery for other apps.

    Do hard resets wipe out all your contacts, emails, texts, etc.?

    This is so far today.

    20 min VoLTE call
    10-15 texts
    Multiple Web pages (~35+) and one YouTube video (video was ~1:30)
    Auto Brightness
    Had to resync my whole Google account due to a stupid passphrase issue with chrome
    All syncs on for Google (calendar, email, etc. etc.)
    About 45 mins of music over bluetooth so far from Google Music (streaming only, no caching, high quality)

    This is my 2nd cycle.

    Yeah. I'm rocking a note 3 so I'm not concerned about the battery life but I'm dreading a lower difference lol

    That's not bad, I guess. It'll be interesting to see how well the AT&T and Verizon hold up, as well. I'm hoping after your 5th cycle that you'll be closer to 4-4 1/2.

    For most of the time. I sent a few text messages and checked Facebook for a couple of minutes. Even while the screen was on, the percentage was going up pretty fast.

    If you look at those Google Play Services stats, does this show you as a lot of time Awake? Also if you click on the graphic above, it will show the Wifi Cell, Awake, Screen and GPS bars, what is showing on those Cell and Awake bars? If the Awake bars is full that means that your phone is not getting to sleep mode and that will keep draining your battery, then you should look to the services that are shown as the most used ones and see which one is showing Awake for long periods, and that is the one that is causing issues.

    For the amount of posts you have I assume you already knew about this, I'm just detailing it for others that may not know about it.

    Actually they don't have that graph you're talking about when pressing it anymore (at least mine won't load it) to see when it was awake or not .. Not sure why. Or maybe I am derping haha .

    The Google Services was only so high since I had to re-sync my entire account again. Otherwise I am sure it would not be top.

    As it has been shown in the thread I posted already, it seems that part of the issue with the Cell Standby and Android System maybe the Ant+ app and Wifi calling.

    With a recent (since yesterday) update to the Ant+ app and once WIFI calling is disabled they have seen better battery life and SoT and the Cell Standby battery usage has decreased a lot.

    Go over there and read.

    Ahh ok, well, I don't know why you can't see anything clicking on the graph, as even my S5 with Lollipop you click it and show you the History detail.

    Anyway, if you can, keep trying and let us know if it finally works.

    I'll get back to you guys when I am not running my HotSpot for 8 hours. Sharing my unlimited T-Mobile data with other carrier users tends to burn my battery down pretty fast...... When did other peoples data limits become my problem!!!

    You guys won't be disappointed. I left Samsung after the S4 for various reasons. I can say they fixed every complaint I had with past phones and then some. I think the battery life is just fine.

    Very encouraging news. I'm still partially skeptical (hopeful) that this is a T Mobile issue. I don't even think Verizon has WiFi calling....

    They don't. Eventually (a year or two .. I say two) down the road but for now .. It is only T-Mobile and Sprint with WiFi-Calling.
