    Yep, I just got it Never really like the white backgrounds on settings and phone pad. White backgrounds are AMOLED's Kryptonite. Also too garish being all white background.

    BTW, weak LTE signal is a worse battery drain than the display set at 100%. Would be nice if there was an option to turn LTE off dynamically, if signal is a certain low threshold. That would be huge for battery life. You do not have to use an Android device in a weak signal area for it to drain.
    I think this is the biggest factor of battery drain..weak LTE signals. Whenever I am on the road traveling my battery is far better. When I am home, where Verizon is weaker, my battery is far worse.

    I agree that there should be some sort of option to fix this.

    The upper part of 4 hours right now. How long have you had it? In my experience with recent Samsung phones (S7E) and with what others are saying, the battery gets optimized after the first few days.

    I've had the phone since Saturday. I'll give it another day or two.

    This is with 18% left on my phone with bunch of apps disabled, screen set to auto. So frustrating

    Do some of these percentages that Android System is using raise any alarms? They seem especially high, on mine, too. I remember a similar problem on the S7E and the fix was to disable the Knox setup wizard client, or something to that effect.
    A little. I've never had an Android phone that uses so much battery from Android System.
    They seem high to me. All my Samsung phones have been 4% to 7% for Android System and Android OS unless there was a problem. The first thing I would try was a cache wipe in recovery, if that didn't work, then a reset. I had one Note 5 that suddenly Android System started running high and nothing helped it.

    I finally sent it to Samsung but the problem continued after the repair and I just kept the TMO exchange handset.

    I'm definitely going to try disabling KNOX with Package Disabler Pro and see what happens tomorrow. I'll still get a little over 4 hours SOT today with it enabled, but the phone can do a lot more.

    Mine today said that Android OS has used 20%. It's never showed that before. Has anyone figured out what that is yet?

    You guys must not have had the S7 or the S7E. Same story. I call it the "snapdragon tax"

    I had it at 100% at the exact same time yesterday and I haven't charged it since... I'm at 43%. I've been streaming videos, doing a bit of high graphic gaming (Dead Trigger), Facebook, texting, phone calls and such. I'm extremely impressed with the battery life I can easily last a day and a half on this battery... I'm using the snapdragon 820 variant.

    This is my first Samsung phone. Has no one ever figured out what causes this or what to do about it?

    So almost a week in and I am actually more impressed. With my Note 5 I was getting 8 or 9 hours with SOT of 3-3.5 on average. I'm a heavy user but not with videos or any gaming. Text Gmail news feeds. That's about it and then about 60-90 minutes of calls.

    On the N7 I am getting 9-10 hours with 4-4.5 hours of SOT. So an improvement.

    Granted my 6s+ I was getting 10-12 hours but don't know SOT usage as it isn't displayed. But I knew that coming in.

    Mixed bag for me. Took it off the charger at 10am, some light browsing; came home played mobius final fantasy for 4+ hours at highest performance.

    It's not great, but it's definitely worth it. I'm sure I could stretch it if I really wanted to.

    You can make the phone have 8 hours SoT if you really wanted to, but then you'll have to disable everything that makes the phone a Note.

    Not worth it imo.

    That doesn't look right. Nova doesn't even show up for me on the battery usage area it's using that little.
