    Hmm...Never really been one for apps like this and I haven't run into much of a problem with battery life so far on the Note 4, but I have had to top it off before bedtime on higher use days, so I'm giving this a try. I feel like I can trust Snapdragon's reputation.

    I just tend to tweak settings myself, so I'm worried to see how/what it decides it needs to change on my behalf vs. how I'd actually like the phone to function.

    Also not sure it'll be much of an issue as long as Sammy gets more of the spare battery/charger kits in stock before my promotional discount runs out, but worth a try.

    Although, I'll be traveling for Thanksgiving, so I hope it doesn't think the first week is really a good indicator of how I use the device. The next few days will give it the best idea.

    I've been using that ever since the SGS4 came out and swear by it. It eliminates some of the manual tweaks that would otherwise be necessary.

    We had to remove the link at the top of your post due to forum rules.

    Opps. Sorry that I posted the link against rules. I didnt realize.
    Yes, it saves a lot of time over manual tweaks. I like that it learns how you use your phone for the first 3 days and then calculates your battery time after 7 days of using the app. I find it to be accurate. It's unintrusive and effective.

    You can reset it and have it re- learn at any time.

    I'm giving it a go. Worst case scenario, I have to uninstall it.

    I've been using it on my s4 the past year or so and the one annoying thing it does still to this day is turns off sync with gmail sometimes.

    Otherwise when it comes to battery life improvements, I think it does help. Some reviews say they get 30-50% increase in battery life, others say around 20%, I personally never took it that scientifically. I think it helps so I leave it on my phone as it doesn't really interfere with much, other than gmail.

    Good to know. I'm sure I'll be tweaking some options before too long. Just because I don't use some things directly very often doesn't mean I want them chopped off at the knees so I miss things.

    In Battery Guru you have 3 options for G-Mail syncing. 1) Based on how you use it, 2) When it wants, 3) only when you open it. I use #3 but you may want to select #2.

    I've done all 3 options and many times it seems to unsync itself. I think default is option #2 (saves battery). It's not a real bother for me personally, but it's something I noticed.

    I've been using it for a while now and it's been pretty good. I'm using a Edge without and then I'll install to the difference.
