    For the last 2 weeks or so my battery on my S7 has gone from 100% to 0 in a matter of 5 hours or less. I do use my phone a lot but up until recently I used to get at least 18 hours out of my battery. I suspect it's a software update because it literally happened over night. When I check the battery usage it appears "mediaserver" is to blame, accounting for 80% of my battery usage. Is there any way for me to fix this?

    If you are not using your phone to share your media with other devices, you can disable that app/service.

    Welcome to Android Central! Mediaserver drain often indicates a corrupt media file somewhere in storage. If you have an SD card inserted, go to Settings>Storage to Unmount it, then remove it, and insert it into your computer. Can the computer read these files? Backup as much as you can right now, then run chkdsk to look for bad sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...d-sd-card.html.
