timmmay:

 

What's SOT?

 

Probably something running away with the battery. Look in settings, use one of the power analyser apps, you should be good to track it down. My S4 could do it.

 

 

Screen on time.

 

Im using one of the apps suggested above and will see where it goes :)

If you're regularly in one place you could try a wireless charger, chuck it on that for a few minutes each time. Easier than a cable. If wifi / 4G is on it can make the device get hot, at least with the older system I use, so I have Llama turn those off when I start charging the phone.

This may or may not be relatable.

 

 

 

I have a Note 5 and I started off with a very serious battery drain issues. I was lucky to get 20 hours with almost no SOT. It was a nightmare. I tried everything, to no avail.

 

 

 

I found some posts on XDA forums about a bug related to ARP broadcasts from the router keeping the device awake, or something. I thought I'd try a new router, so I turned on WiFi on my 7 year old Linksys and connected the Note to that. Bam! Next day I got to 20 hours with 50% remaining.

 

I regularly (since early December) get 36+ hours with 2-3 hours SOT. Right now 15.5 hours + 1.5h SOT with 67% remaining. WiFi is always on - but I only use WiFi at home with the Linksys, whatever App optimisation the phone wants and ~40% brightness, BT off.

 

 

 

Switching back to my ASUS N12U causes the same drain again. I don't use WiFi outside of my home, so I can't say what would happen. Apparently it is a common enough issue and some ROMs and the alert97 Kernel have a fix for this issue.

Phone has been off charge for 4 hours with minimal use and 1 call 75% remaining..

 

 

 

Must be something wrong here.

Perhaps a naffed battery ?? , I am up at 6am (standard s6) as well use it through out the day , everything on mine is turned on so maximum usage with radio etc , probably about 70mins talk time a day on average , get home around 5pm and still have a good 30% left which by the time I hit the hay around 10:30 is about 25%.
