    Hi all, new here and new to the android system. I've own my S7 edge now for about a month and love it! However, for the last couple of days I been noticing my battery draining rapidly, I'd say 2-3% every 5 minutes- with moderate use. The only thing I've installed new was the "Trend Micro Antivirus" and it pretty much went south thereafter. I also noticed 'Android System' using a lot of my juice. It's always on the top with more than 30% since last charge. Any ideas on how to fix it. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone!

    Hello! Welcome to the forums! There is a long thread about similar battery drains. Take a look and see if any of the ideas in there work for you.

    Bingo! Try uninstalling it and see if there is a difference.

    Welcome to the AndroidCentral Forums Dalon37!

    Great to have you here with us. The S7 is a really awesome device. You said that you are new to the Android system. What device did you own previously and do you want to share why you changed?

    Hope to see you around the forums.

    Hi Matty and thanks! I used to have an apple 5c liked it a lot but one day it just stopped working. Went to best buy hoping to get another apple but fell in love with the s7. Like mentioned before i really like the s7 thus far aside from the weird rapid battery discharge. Glad my 5c went to hell and discovered this new gem👌
