    So I just got the S7 Edge a few days ago on a sweet deal, but I am noticing the amount of applications pre-installed that are...irritatingly confusing? I don't really know what to do with them. Getting more to the point though, I noticed after taking my phone off the charger this morning (100% battery life) only a few hours later I am somehow sitting at (60%~ range battery life) and am trying to figure out how this is possible already. Is there a link between this rapid drain and the bloatware pre-installed? What can I do? Thanks!

    Welcome to AC!
    The battery is A BEAST.
    These preinstalled apps can be disabled.Looking for those who have mastered the Galaxy S7 Edge, need advice on bloatware and battery!!!-1468770392863.jpg
    Here you can see that Google Music Play can't be uninstalled but you can "turn it off".
    Other tips for battery life :
    •Disable location
    •Disable auto syncin
    •Disable auto brightness and keep it low.
    •Have a black theme like this one for example :
