Default Note 5 Battery Life suffering.

Not sure whats going on as of late, this is a new unit (broke other insurance replaced with brand new model about 3-4 months ago).

But lately like right now, my phone has already gone from 100% to 75%. It's on cell data, no wifi. But 25% down on very, very little use 99% idle seems excessive. I get up at 5:30 so we are talking only 2.5hrs of idle time, maybe 10 minutes on-use.

This has become an every day occurrence for about the past 2 weeks.

Sounds just like my experience with the Note 5. Never found a solution. Maybe we both just had bad units. Maybe try getting it replaced again? I'm assuming there's some kind of warranty on it anyways.

Not my experience with Note5. Latest firmware? Tried doing a factory reset?

Is your cell radio staying on all the time? What does your battery use stats look like? Screenshots might help.

Some facebook battery draining bug was fixed...


https://www.facebook.com/mashable.te...message_bubble


Quote:
If you're experiencing the glitch, simply restart your Messenger app. The problem was related to an issue with Facebook's servers, Marcus said, so no app update is required.

Marcus also advised that anyone using the beta version of the apps switch to the normal version for a better experience.

I also have a Note 5, and Gear VR (owned by Facebook). And some weeks ago the battery was draining fast, because of some background Facebook service. Pissed me off. (I don't even have Facebook app or Messenger installed). I was so annoyed by the fact that even though I had already purchased a ton of Gear VR content, I was considering uninstalling the Gear VR altogether and getting rid of it. But I think (I THINK) it is ok now.

Try using Greenify and Purify. Really helped my battery life. It certainly kills FB from running in the background.

Some people online said just delete FB off your phone if you don't need the notifications. I cannot do that because I want to be able to quickly share links and pictures onto my FB from my phone. But using Greenify+Purify is for me the best of both worlds.

You can also try lowering the phone screen's solution.
