    I bought my Note 5 on VZW yesterday, after coming from the note 5 on AT&T. My issue seems to be unusual high Android OS draining my battery. Maybe new phones just need a day or two to settle? I'm about to clear cache for apps by rebooting into recovery. I have done the following:

    -Disable VZW/Samsung Bloat (Package Disabler Pro)
    -Disable S Finder (Package Disabler Pro)
    -Turn off motion Gestures
    -Turn off S voice
    -Turn off or decrease vibrations
    -Turn off Google Location History
    -Turn off Android Device manager
    -Disable Unnecessary Sync Service
    -Turn off S pen Alerts, pen detection, and S pen sound and vibration (will still work exactly the same)
    -Turn off 'Always allow scanning' under advanced wifi settings (Allows apps to serach for Wifi even when wifi is off)

    Definitely take a week and see what your typical usage is.
