    S8+

    Just a brief description of the type of user i am.

    1. I'm not a gamer. I played some Mario run today but that was it.

    2. I use QHD screen with brightness on 100%

    3. Heavy Facebook and AC user.

    4. I use YouTube ALOT

    5. I would be considered a heavy user.

    This morning at 8:05 am I was at full charge. It is now 8:35 pm and I'm on 36%. I'm very pleased.

    Are you using an S8 or S8 plus? And are you using an Exynos Processor or Snap Dragon? Carrier?

    Sounds like good day.

    Thanks for the info.

    If it's T-Mobile then you're in the US and it will be the Snap Dragon.

    Ive never used the s7 edge with QHD or 100% brightness the whole day and they were about the same.

    So with more power saving on the S7E you would get about the same battery life as the S8+ with QHD and screen set to 100%?

    Nice!!

    I wonder how much savings you would get by lowering the screen resolution.

    Well I paid attention to Every detail of my use yesterday but I admittedly did not do it with the s7. I believe I used the phone as I always do but you never know.

    How are your signal levels, always full bars?

    Need to know SOT to try to quantify the relevance of 36% left. Also if in good signal areas, since next to the display, radio reception in weak areas is the next battery drainer on the list. Games are not the only battery draining apps, but point is not enough info to quantify 36%

    Doesn't sound he needs to do that. Why lower it if you don't need to?

    I just basically wrote about my experience and how long it lasts for my use. I'm just your average user who only goes so deep into the why a battery lasts a certain time frame. I have no idea how to measure screen on time as i'm not timing how much i turn it on but I was on it A LOT.

    S8 plus on T-Mobile. Sitting at 40 percent left with screen on time of nearly 5hrs. No gaming. Screen resolution set to QHD (did this first thing). Screen brightness set to auto but I've been indoors all day so it's been sitting more toward the low end. So far very impressed.

    You go to settings and battery, usage, screen. It will show on time.

    I easily get 7 hours plus sot. With my v20 I could maybe squeeze 6 on wifi all day. Definitely the best battery life I've seen in a phone so far.

    It's only been 1 day but for the day I got over 4 1/2 hrs on the S8. I think I could have hit 5+ hrs because I spent a lot of time setting it up and updating apps.

    Did you set all your apps to sleep? What are your settings that gave you great screen on time?

    I set some apps to sleep. Didn't do much else though. I don't watch much video on my phone just browsing forums and stuff and BT music.
