Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

Mabey Roger's stopped upgrades due to battery problems?

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

I drained my battery and then recharged to full. Didn't make any difference..

Soundwave let us know the results of your attempt. If different firmware doesn't make a difference then it's probably the batterys life decreasing? Annoying that the note 5 battery is built in too.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

I will report back early next week when he flashes the software. But I doubt it's the battery since it just started to drain fast since marshmallow.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

Everyone -- just tweeted out to @RogersHelp and they're claiming no other reports of battery drain issues -- just pointed them to this thread. There is a definite battery drain issue -- seeing the same problem. I've reset the phone (not from backup), wiped cache, tried a battery re-calibration (as per AndroidPit) and the issue remains. There is a definite change in battery consumption since the update and we need to really hit this home to Rogers.

 

I noticed that other carriers in the US pushed out the Marshmallow update with many complaining of battery drain issues - they then followed it up with another update and it seemed to clear the problem. Hopefully Rogers can do the same very soon.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

I lose on average 5% a hour just with the screen off . I also installed battery doctor and it's always saying my battery is "unhealthy"

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

I have been following the thread on battery life after the update and thought that I would share my experience.

 

I updated my Rogers Note 5 the morning of May 31st.

 

Prior to the update, I would get through a full day (18 hours) without any issues, and with 25% left at the end of the day. My typical use pattern is business (email, calendar, docs, etc.), text messaging, Hangouts, Twitter, general browsing, Flipboard, and a bit of LinkedIn. I typically have 3.5-4 hours of Screen on Time (SOT) per day. I am not a gamer and do not have any games installed. I have disabled all notifications other than for the use mentioned above (with the expection of Twitter and LinkedIn notification being turned off). Lastly, I do use Knox.

 

The first 3 days with the update were a little rough. With the same usage characteristics, the battery lasted only 14 hours before it was totally dead (vs. 18 hours with 25% left).

 

The past two days, battery life has improved to the baseline prior to the update. Perhaps it takes a few days for Doze to kick in, or maybe Samsung's app optimization is reset by the update.

 

I did not clear my cache after the update or do a fresh install.

 

Anyhow, I hope that this information is of some use.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

Hey guys!

It seems most major Android updates that come out have major battery issues. The same happened with the Note 4 and also the S5. I wonder if this is something that Google or Samsung is doing to release updates after but again many of us are affected by this.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Marshmallow

Wow this is crazy, I'm getting excellent battery on 6.0.1

At first it took a couple days to calm down, now I'm getting 3% drain every 7-10 hrs in stand by. Regular use gives me 5-6 hrs sot surfing the Web, watching videos on YouTube, twitter, fb, 3d games etc..

Hopefully they can get it sorted out for you guys.
