    There have been a few videos with reviews out already. Seems like 4 hours is what they are getting at best. I have to say if that's it I would have to return mine. What do you guys think

    Kinda like movies, I never care what reviewers say. Nobody uses the phone the same way.

    I'm not all that big on what they say either. But I'm guessing the 4 hours isn't that far off from were it will be in real world use

    Well, a lot people said the SOT on the LG V10 was low as well but I consistently get 5+ hours. I'm guessing the Note 7 will be similar, especially with a larger battery.

    No, because:

    1). If never trust the opinion of a group of people who would never use a phone like I would

    2). I'm not some consumer-ocd driven experience monkey that arbitrarily decides that what everyone else deems as acceptable is right for me

    3). Maybe there are use cases for people who are active and driving or walking around all day...but I'm an exec level employee who works from home 80% of the time and the other 20% I'm travelling. Even in airports. There are wireless charging stations everywhere....and I'm never too far from a place that I can top off my phone.

    4). When I go on vacation...my phone is in airplane mode 99% of the time (or its not a vacation) and you quickly realize that without connectivity...or looking at it every 5 seconds like a spastic compulsive that working has made me into...my phones have lasted days on a single charge.

    There's also been a few reports of people getting 6-7 hours SoT. Mileage will vary, as usual. Best wait for the regular reviewers to give their input before worrying about it.

    4 hours would suck compared to the s7e. Hopefully it's not that bad on the note.

    SOT times without knowing the whole picture doesn't mean much... 4 hours SOT with one week standby is pretty good. 4 hours SOT with hotspot constantly running and playing intensive games at maximum brightness is good.

    Just wait till it's in everyone's hands, and then wait another week or 2 for folks to use it like they NORMALLY would - not like they do in the first day or 2. Seriously all, don't listen to any battery life reports of someone's first day of use. Also, as all the others have said, battery life will likely be somewhat different for everyone .

    Many factors are part of battery life, the biggest of which, and also the things that tend to vary a lot are:
    - How good of a network signal are you getting?
    - How high is your screen brightness?
    - How many, how often, and for how long are background updates running (along with specific bad apps eating battery in the background). ?
    - What are you doing with your SoT? Is it hours of intense gaming or video chatting which will drain the battery quite heavily, or is it just web browsing, and texting, etc, which will be far less taxing?

    The answers to those questions greatly impact one's battery life.

    We'll know soon enough. But I am not going to pay attention to any of them until I get my Note 7 and compare it to my Note 5 under the same conditions - after a week or so.

    Only your own use compared to your previous device has much objective weight.

    I get more then 4 hours with my note 5. I doubt a newer phone with a bigger battery will be worse.

    I average 4.5 to 5 on the n5 so I would think it would be better than that for me.

    I suspect that if it's real, it's a software issue that Samsung will fix quickly. But I doubt it's real. I don't know that the units that reviewers have are truly final. It wouldn't be the first time that Samsung has used feedback from early reviewers to fix an issue either and do so quickly.

    I would like to ask you who and where are these three or four video reviews? I've tried to follow every single video out there, and so far I've seen one that talks about battery life. Pocketnow said they got 4 hours on screen time, but he speculates that it's because of signal issues where he was using the phone. So where are these other videos that you've seen?

    Why would you return a phone based on other people's opinions? That's stupid to be honest. Everybody's usage is different.

    Me too. One of the reasons I gambled on this was I figured with bigger battery but same resolution battery life would be improve. Hope that is the case.

    I'm sure the SOT will only be around 4 hours. I could not care less as I don't leave my screen on for that long and for those extra long days where I do I normally keep a battery case in my car. It's always being charged, so I slap it on and I'm ready to go.

    Everyone's usage will vary. 4 hours SOT isn't great, but not terrible either. I mean if you plan to be on your phone 24/7 yeah no phone is really going to hold up.

    That is only one I saw as well. Not to mention in those 24 hours he was downloading all his apps and using smartswitch.

    Is the only one you saw because it's the only one that exists at the moment.
