I had 2 Nexus 6 phones so I sold one and bought a Note 5 from a co worker that he bought new in May for his wife, she was an Apple person and didn't like it so it just sat there for a few months, phone is virtually brand new, I did a full wipe on the phone and set it up as a new device with a mininimal amount of apps, today was my first full day using it and the battery life is horrible. 13 1/2 hours total time off charger, 2 1/2 hours screen on time, about 12 text messages, 29 minutes of phone calls 2 email accounts and it was down to 18% after the total 13 1/2 hours. Looking at GSam Android System was 37% and Phone was 24%. Looked at each app in battery stats nothing was using any real battery except those 2 things. Maybe this is why she hated the phone, as she put it. Anyone have any ideas, I'm at a loss considering I just did a full reset and have hardly any apps loaded, the android system thing seems to be killing it and I don't have a clue what the phone app is using, in all my years of owning an android device I've never seen the phone using that much battery, especially considering I only used the phone a total of 29 minutes. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Give it a few days. Google updates, downloads, etc will hurt battery at first.

Did all my app loading, updates, and whatever, then did a cache wipe then turned off the phone charged to 100% before I started using it. But thank you for the input.

Android system shouldn't be high on the Note 5. Can you post some battery stats and GSam stats?

I am on day 2, I should have taken a screen shot before I charged the phone again, if today is like yesterday I'll do that and post it on here. Thank you for your input.
