Battery Full Note 3 Neo SM-N750 Rooted Kitkat 4.4.2 6days6hrs & SOT 8h46m
Hi Everyone,

SM-N750
Build number KOT49H.N750XXUCNK2
Baseband version N750DXUCNH1

Battery life:- 6days 6hours with Screen on Time of 8 hours 46 min

The highest screen on time I got on SM-N750 was 9 hours 50 min which I posted in this thread on first few pages but that was on jelly bean.
From the screenshots you can also see that my battery drains whenever mobile signal becomes poor or dips even a bit.
This SM-N750 is a beast and easily the best battery friendly smartphone currently.

How to get similar or better results?
if you are rooted
then greenify ALL apps EXCEPT launcher, viper4android & messengers such as whatsapp which you use frequently.
-> Don't clear the RAM , just forget that Task manager even exists.
-> Clear the "Recent apps" before you lock your phone.
if you are NOT rooted
then you can use "hibernate" app to hibernate all EXCEPT launcher

For more information you can check the links to my posts in my signature where I explained in detail how to get great battery life.

part 2-> Click here

Once you follow all the steps I can assure you all a great battery life with record breaking SOT on your Note 3 Neo.

Cheers!

Hi,

Thank you for the appreciation.
You are getting decent battery life currently, but your mobile can definitely do much better and cross 8 hour SOT mark consistently.
For that your battery usage must be analyzed closely.

If you take few screenshots of your recent battery usage that will be immensely helpful in finding out which app or service is eating your battery. 1 Screenshot of SOT, 1 Screenshot of battery from 100% to 1% and few more screenshots similar to mine.
We can then use that info and see what you can do more to increase your SOT from 6.5 to more than 8 hrs.

Since you are not rooted you can use "hibernate" app from play store which does similar job like "Greenify" .
Greenify on the other hand CAN be used on non-rooted phones too but I am not so sure if it will have similar impact like it does on rooted phones.
In my phone I have all apps Greenified except Nova launcher, Viper4android, Peel smart remote, internet speed meter, LMT launcher (PIE control ) , double twist music player and Whatsapp.
You can use "hibernate" app to hibernate all apps except the ones that you use frequently on your non-rooted phone.

If you have some time please find the part 1 and part 2 in my signature to the detailed posts that explain what needs to be in combination to get best results in battery.

Hope this is helpful.

Cheers!

Hi,

Based on the screenshots I find the below problems
1) Mobile signal is weak.
2) Your phone is not sleeping in idle state which means some app/service that is constantly waking the device.

Brightness - Manual - 5 or 10% which ever one is comfortable for you but please don't put "auto"
Mobile networks - > Network Mode - > WCDMA for 3G , GSM for 2G - but see that it is not "auto"
Display > Check if "auto adjust screen tone" is unchecked , if it is not please change it to "unchecked"
S pen > Disable pen detection , Attach vibration -> unchecked

Put the "auto-sync" ON from the notification for few minutes and then check in Settings -> Accounts -> Google or anything you may have there. Uncheck everything under each app listed there. Once you are done, Switch off the "auto-sync" from notification panel

Go to Settings -> General -> Software update -> Uncheck "Auto-update"

Backup & Reset -> Uncheck all options

Open Battery usage
Check if you find anything related to Google
Click on that and "force stop"

Check all the Google apps for any "sync" related options that needs to connect to internet, uncheck/disable frequent syncing.
Calendar,
Maps,
Youtube
Chrome
Google Music -> Disable this -> to do that go to settings -> application manager > All apps > Google music -> there will be a "disable" button , click that
Gmail -> uncheck auto download attachments
Google Drive ->

Here is the list of apps that you can place in hibernation list

My hibernation list
1) all share control share service
2) Bluetooth test
3) bubbles
4) chat on
5) chrome (even this is a good browser, I found better results with chrome frozen on my other devices)
6) Enterprise VPN services ( dont use that much)
7) Exchange services
8) Gear manager
9) Google play books
10) Google Search
11) Google play games
12) Google +
13) Group play
14) Help
15) Index Service ( I am little unsure about this one)
16) Knox
17) Knox store
18) Knox Notification Manager
19) Live wall paper picker
20) NFC Test
21) Polaris viewer
22) Page buddy
23) S Finder
24) S planner widget
25) S voice
26) SNS
27) Samsung link
28) Samsung Push
29) Samsung account
30) Scrap book
31) Software update
32) Story album
33) Story album widget
34) Talk back
35) Voice recorder
36) Wlan test
37) Yahoo finance
38) YouTube
39) Knox event manager
40) Knox attestation
41) Policy updates
42) Wssyncmlnps
43) DRM

the above list is safe to hibernate. In your screenshots, there were few others which you have hibernated like "unified demon" , S-health etc.. which you can remove from the hibernation list otherwise they will create wakelocks and wont let your battery to go into deep sleep mode.

Once you finish this current charge, please post screenshots of G Sam battery app ,
1) Screenshot of 1st page
2) App usage
3) View time held awake
4) View num times waking device

Also take screenshots of inbuilt battery usage
1) Screenshot of 1st page (this was missing in your screenshots)
2) Screenshot of battery from 100% to 1%
3) SOT

Since you are using 2G/3G data intermittently , you can try an app called "Auto-Sync" which is kind of customized and better
It is a free app from play store.

Your mobile signal seems to be weak few times which in turn is sucking up your battery around 10% to 14% (1 hour of SOT lost due to weak signal) you can find this info from G Sam battery once you finish this charging cycle.

Hibernate all user apps except the frequently used apps (Chat, launcher )

Finally,
->Switch back to GSM network mode once you finish using 3G data
-> Before you put the phone in idle please clear the "Recent apps"
-> Use only "hibernate" app and uninstall Greenify as you are not rooted. Reason being Greenify works well with Xposed for rooted phones as it needs permissions to auto-hibernate apps that we put in its list. Without root it will not be so effective. That is why it is better if you uninstall Greenify. You can use Greenify once you are rooted in future.

Please don't miss anything from the above mentioned points.

Hope you find this useful.

Cheers!

Hibernated apps or frozen/deactivated apps ?

It seems that greenify doeas what it should even without root 'cause not a single app is running in the background if I don't open it.

Hi,

I know if you set the brightness to "auto" it is little brighter and easier to look at your screen outside especially in sun light otherwise it is pretty hard to read. During that time it is better to increase the brightness manually by moving the slider to your right as per your requirement.

In the battery usage screen, those google apps will restart once you connect to internet.But before you keep your phone in idle mode it is better to"Force stop them from the battery usage screen.

Google play, Google maps, Google play services, Google contact sync and other Google apps are battery hogs if not optimized.

Since you are not rooted you can only "hibernate" but not freeze.Yes, it is hibernated apps.

In your house/work check where you are getting full bars and place the phone in that place always to minimize the battery drain. That is one thing you can try. It helped me doing this way when I faced similar problem.
When you finish using 3G data don't forget to change the "network mode" from WCDMA to GSM.

Greenify is excellent app if you are rooted and it works in conjunction with Xposed framework beautifully. Without root it doesn't have the authority to auto-hibernate the apps. From the screenshots I felt it is not that effective like it is for rooted phones. Otherwise you will have horizontal line across your screen and not a slope in idle state. If your battery is draining while you use the apps/services then it is ok but when you don't use battery shouldn't drain so much. You should have something like 10% per 1 hour SOT and during idle state max drain 1% for 9 hours or 12 hours.

These were my observations based on your screenshots to add another 1 hour or more SOT to your existing results.

I understand you don't want to root now because of Knox problem. But when you do root in future, you will be able to enjoy your mobile even more as you can adjust the voltages for certain frequencies, freeze unnecessary apps like Google play. Convert system apps like Google contact sync , Google bookmark sync , Google calendar sync to user apps and then greenify them. Finally, uninstall some bloatware.

Hope you find this useful and succeed in improving your battery results.

Cheers!
