Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

Do you guys have "Ok google" enabled without knowing it. That is a serious battery hog which could explain that kind of drain as OK google would be included under Android system. Check in Google Now settings under "voice". That solved a friend's battery issues on a Telus Note 5.

Yes I wiped the cache partition, and just screen and Android OS is the problem.ive installed greenify but no help from that so I Uninstalled it.

Btw, in settings->advanced features, make sure to disable all those features. Also for the Display, disable the "Smart stay".

 

Check your settings->Accounts, do you have any that are complaining of "Sync Error", if so, re-add the accounts because that causes battery drains too. Android keeps trying to sync something but it keeps failing.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

I have just about disabled everything there is to disable , sadly my note 5 has as many features enabled as a Nokia phone from 2001! I just did another factory reset but this time I set it up as a new device without doing a restore of anything. I'll post back to let you know how it goes.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

Any luck with a fresh reset without backup?

I tried disabling volte, made no difference.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

My first impression is yes it does seem to be making a difference.I still have lots of apps disabled and only downloaded a few apps from the play store ,but yesterday at this time I was around 20% battery now I'm at 50%.

Hmm try installing all your apps and then see if it ends up being the same.
