I haven't timed it, and I've only had it one week, but it seems to draw down pretty fast. No way can I get a full days use out of it.

Really? I have had it since it came out and I've been able to get about 3 30 hours for 50% so I just double it and get 7 to assume if I was to use it for the whole day. I get great battery life. But I came from the s5.

I use 360Security to close up everything after I use it a bunch. Boosting &  extend the battery from draining aps. Thus works for me I have great time with it. Use my Bluetooth a lot & am still fine on battery.  I do however plug it in when in the car &  if I'm at home doing massive usage plug in while using.
