    Anyones battery drain really fast when always on mode is set? Have had my phone for almost a week now and as much as it says its a power saver, it takes my battery out fast. Got a half days worth of life while I had it on. Just turned it off last night and today at this moment my battery is at 85% when usually it would be around 50/60%.

    Nope. S7 edge and the battery lasts longer than the G4.

    I'm talking about "always on" mode being enabled and disabled, where the clock and date show when your phone is locked. Not the actual battery life of the phone itself.

    I know what you're talking about. I have it turned on and with it turned on, my battery still lasts longer than my g4 did.


    And I don't really notice a big improvement with it turned off. So I leave it turned on.

    I've switched from iOS so i don't have an android to compare it to, but I have no idea. My phone with always on enabled states a 9 hour estimate before it dies. I've had always on switched off since last night and its been 6 hours without a charger and my phone has just hit 9 estimated hours. I also use my phone like I have every other day aka constant gaming and social media, so like I said, I have no idea

    Drains a little faster but not bad. Overnight I see about 1% an hour idle drain with always on display.

    No! I charged up to 100% and left it OFF a charger all night. 8 hours later, it was at 95% when I woke up. Shoot, my Note 5 used to 10% and not use anything!!!

    Did you look into the battery optimization I realised two of mine were still not checked. Do you run package disabler pro?

    I can't check 6 apps on the optimization page, and yes I use package disabler pro.
