So...lemme know how that battery keeps a charge next year. Buying a whole new phone because your battery is shot. That blows. Disposable design at premium pricing well keep those quarterly earnings in the hole imo.

My Note2 is almost 2 years old and still gets almost 8 hours of sot on the original and only battery I've got for it. My Tab 1 still gets over 7 hours SOT and it's 4+ years old. My wife's iPad is almost 5 years old and still gets almost the sot it got when new.
I agree that I'd rather see user changeable batteries in case one does go bad but they don't prematurely go bad as often as they used to .

This is soo sad they keep on making this crap and we keep on buying it. A phone should last a DAY. As in 24 hours. At the VERY least it should last from when you get up at 7am until you go to bed at 11pm. Period. To get proper time out of a battery we HAVE to be able to crack it open and spend money we shouldn't in the first place to put in a proper battery. Have a note 3 with a monster battery, 8500 mah, and when it was new got 3 days. Now ready to get a new phone and was ready to get a Note 5 until I found out the battery is in jail. No no. Maybe I'll get a note 4.

As a Note 4 owner/user, I would highly recommend it. It's an awesome computer and also a really good phone. ;)

Android system and Android OS are usually the top two for me.....ever since the Lollipop update, and after 2 FDR'S and many many cache wipes. Nothing's helped for me.

And I don't EVEN know what to make of this. What the heck is Google services?
This is the first time I've seen it at the top, and I didn't do one thing different with the phone today than any other day.....

Same thing for me today. I've also never had it at the top. There must of been a server issue for sync or something..

Oddly, the night (Wed. night) before my post above, Google Drive updated, then Thurs. I had that high Google Play Services drain. Last night (Thurs. night) G-Drive updated again, and today G-Play Services isn't even in the list.
