Battery life looks great.
On a side note, why do most screenshots posted on this forum look so bad? Are you just adding an image or attachment? I can barely make out the screen on time. Looks like 8hr 25min.

you are right, it does look bad, it is not 8 hours, it is like 5 hours and 25 minutes on the 23rd.

I took a screenshot using ScreenWrite with the S-Pen

What phone is everyone coming from? 5 hours of SOT is not stellar it's more like average. I was getting that and more with my 3500 mah s9+. 7-10 hours of SOT would be stellar, but I don't see the note 9 doing that. Don't get me wrong it has good batter life, but not stellar. Honestly it's the only thing I don't like about the phone.

It all depends on how you use the phone. Gaming and videos, screen brightness at max, for example, will drain it faster. First test yesterday I unplugged at 0615 and at 2330 was at 8% with over 6.5 hours of SOT. And that was one of my more heavy usage days. S9+ and iPhone X averaged about 4-4.5 SOT.

U are missing the point..the phone is very new like 2 days old for most..mine is 1 day old i have 5hrs + Sot and still 30% battery remaining...I never got this battery life with my S9+

My 2 cents.....

The phone battery wouldn't reach optimum performance until around approx 4 discharge and recharge cycles.

Battery usage in my opinion is a subjective topic as we all set up our phones differently.

i.e.....

different settings preferences in the phone.
Different settings preferences in the apps.
Different apps.
Different signal strengths where we live, work and commute.
People turn off their phones overnight and some don't.
Some elect to regulary top up their phones battery and some don't.

My N9 came out of the box with 68% battery.

After turning it on I put it back in the box while it set itself up as I was at work.
This was launch day Friday.
Since then I've used my back ups to further set it up and lightly used the phone with turning it off overnight too.
Apart from hooking it up to my computer to move some music onto it which would have introduced a little bit of charge into it it's not been on charge.
Today it still has 47% in it.

Happy days. ;)

I didn't check my first day but my second day, I hit 6.5 hours of SOT before the phone died. Yesterday, I hit 8 hours with 3% battery life left.

Sitting back and watching the "I get 5 hours and I am happy" "No your a fool I get 15 hours and it still sucks" "But I get 30 hours on my ____ Phone," "I turn off everything, and put black text on black themes and never have to charge my phone"... and the inevitable "I have a note 4 and can swap my battery" discussion.

Freedom of speech be darned... these threads should be banned. They serve no purpose, there is no valid way to compare battery life, and I can't belive I actually clicked on it to read it. My mistake.

Actually if someone had a Note 8 and upgraded to a Note 9 and you have the Note 8 and are thinking about upgrading these threads are helpful. They can give you an idea of what battery bump or decrease you might see. probably wont see and exact correlation but it does give you an idea.

It's certainly a subjective topic.

Personally I follow a good battery saving tip I was given years ago.

Turn Off the Battery % sign in the status bar and enjoy the phone.

A few of you are missing something very important!

Regularly draining the battery down to 3% is going to mean s new battery every couple of months. Lithium batteries are not deep-discharge batteries. The operating range for best battery life is charge to 80% and stop. Start charging at 40% or turn the phone off.

It's great to see 6 weeks of SoT, but when you come back here in a month asking how to fix the battery not charging all the way to 100%, or discharging from 100% to 10% in just a few hours, don't waste your time - just send the phone back for a new battery. (And hope that Samsung still charges only $60 for a battery replacement.) Gone are the days when we could buy a battery for $5 and replace it in 15 seconds.

I get 3 12-hour days with light use (on a Pixel 2, which is under-batteried), going from 80% to 40%, but if I'm using the phone all day, I hit 40% late in the afternoon - less than 1 full day. And you won't do much better. A little, because the Note 9 isn't *** under-batteried, but not that much. (But I don't plan to keep having the battery replaced. Maybe after 3 years, not sooner.)

Doesn't it generally take 7 days for the phone to adjust to your usage patterns?

If so, doing a battery review after only 1-3 days is useless.

Here's where I am after taking the phone off the charger yesterday. Typical usage patterns since then. Also have the full Facebook and Twitter apps installed unlike using the web versions on my N8.

That depends on the usage pattern, the battery and the version of Android.

Pretty much.

I wasn't bragging about the screen on time, I only highlighted that since it was inevitable someone would ask about it.

My only concern is that I can make it morning to night without having to recharge and pretty much no phone can keep up with me. My previous phones have included the S8+, Note8, S9+, Moto Z2 Force, Huawei Mate 9, and the LG V20.

So far the Note9 has, I am 15 days into ownership and I have not had to top off yet.

Today I have been in meetings in multiple different buildings and traveling through 3 different airports, still going to make it to bedtime no problem 820.jpg
