    Why does the Galaxy 8 eat up so much data. Our carrier is Sprint. We have 2 IPhone 7’s and they use average data. But the Samsung use 3 times as much even when the phone is powered off. Sprint’s response is to turn off data?????

    Powered off, that's not possible. Go to settings, data usage, then halfway down, mobile data usage with 2 dates and see what's using all of it, to get an idea. You can also turn on the first option, "data saver"

    Get into battery usage in device Maintenance and look around so you have real numbers. Sleeping is not off.

    Even iPhone users complain about battery life.

    If it is a serious problem- and my S8 and N8 are excellent - then if course do factory reset, don't restore, be extra careful setting it up as new. And watch before you add apps and go crazy.
