    Try it in safe mode for one day first. I'm finding apps are draining the battery without showing up as a power user. Mine was worse than yours and in safe mode it used a 1/6 the power.
    What are your WiFi settings? Do you have them set to scan? Always allow scanning means Google will poll your apps for location even when the apps aren't being used. If you have a low signal, it will poll forever.

    My Android System and OS are way up there but they don't seem to be affecting my battery. I have been doing a lot of tethering so not sure if that will make them go up like that.

    Hmm i guess all phones might react differently, cause i keep my wifi always even when i go to bed and it doesn't kill my battery at all, and when I'm on 4G LTE while out house doesn't eat my battery either, so i am assuming that everyones phone react different, even though it shouldn't be that way.

    I'm seeing very crappy numbers in here and very good numbers.

    Moral of the story: Configuring Android properly is the key to good battery life.

    I always keep mine on never. That helps a lot not to keep wifi on when sleeping. It will wake your phone.

    I would keep my WiFi turned on, but have it set to turn off when the phone is sleeping

    I get what I would consider great battery life, nearly 5 hours screen on time, and I haven't tinkered with anything. WiFi and Bluetooth always on.

    Also others please remember, battery life is subjective to carrier, signal, how you use your phone, etc. You can set your phone up exactly the same, doesn't mean you will get the exact same battery life.

    I see you have NFC on , thats a big battery killer , if i was you i turn it off when not using, leaving it on will drain your battery, i don't use Android pay or Samsung pay ever so i never have NFC on, and i use touchwiz, other launcher like Nova eats more battery then touchwiz.

    I use Samsung pay but I never thought about turning it off....smh

    I've heard the opposite, that touchwiz drains battery and third party launchers are better. Currently on action launcher 3

    You don't need NFC for Samsung Pay.
