    I know is just day one or two for most owners now but can't get past just 4 hours of sot.
    Nothing syncing in the background. No email accounts. No apps downloaded, full signal coverage and brightest at 85%
    Was really hoping for nore than 5 hours.
    What's everyone sot so far?
    I'm at 3 hours of SOT and I'm at 46%. I've been messaging, taken a few calls, posting on here, read a couple news articles, downloaded some of my music to my sd card and watched a couple videos on YouTube.

    So that puts me a little over 5.5 hours on a full charge. Remember not all screen on time is equal. It depends on what you are doing. I got about this amount from my S7 Edge as well. It is more than enough for me. There are so many ways to charge a phone today and it's fast charging so I dont really worry at all even if I got 4 hours of sot.

    At this point I'm not sure why anyone would expect anything better. As annoying as it sounds you just need to invest in an external charger. I've been using Android phones for years and the software has gotten better and better. The only thing that has remained the same is the crappy battery life. But you have quick charge and wireless charging to make up for it.

    Thanks, I've just used it for web searching. Few text messages and no video at all.
    I hope it gets better in a couple of days

    I hope you get what you are looking for from the phone. FYI, I don't believe in handicapping my phone for the sake of battery life unless it was absolutely necessary. I use it how I like it as far as brightness and background settings. I have chargers at home, work and the car. All fast chargers. Then I also keep a fully charged battery pack in the car in case we are somewhere that I need to charge away from an outlet. I very rarely need that. There are just too many ways to keep the phone charged to worry that much about it. Obviously we all want longer battery life, but I don't think anyone needs to worry that much about it if you have the right accessories.

    I don't go about doing all these settings dumbing the phone. I'm using the phone with plenty of apps installed (around 100 or so), multiple social accounts and email accounts setup and syncing regularly, some push. Auto brightness etc and haven't had any issues making the day with medium to heavy use. Again everyone's usage is different, lots of other factors like network conditions, some rogue app etc can cause issues.

    I don't ever get more than 3 hours SOT, not on the S7, S7 edge, and I don't expect to get it on the Note7. But SOT is a small fraction when considering the overall battery life of a phone. People put way too much emphasis on that.

    I know. I also dont believe in handicapping my phone with brightness lower than 85% or not downloading apps, etc. I have tried bone stock to see if I could get better life but it looks like thats it.
    Im going to reset it and download all my stuff and use it like I do all my phones.

    I'll be getting 4-5 hours of sot per day I'm guessing based on what I've seen. It's fine. Not great.

    Sounds like a plan. That was going to be my next suggestion I've had to do that before as well.

    Yeah, my battery life is about what it's always been for Samsung Android phones. Yesterday I had a little over 3 hours sot, with 37% battery left. This is with heavy usage, more than usual for me. I always keep my brightness pretty high ( about 80-85%) and never turn anything off. It's good enough for me.

    I wouldnt even worry about battery life for the first 3 days after setting up the phone.

    After the phone "settles" in the battery life is supposed to get a little better. The initial setup of a new phone hits the battery pretty hard.

    Even with fiddling with mine a lot, installing apps, doing initial syncs, etc, I'm still getting noticeably better battery life than my MXPE got, so I'm quite happy so far. It should just continue to get better, too.

    This was my first full charge after getting everything setup.

    1 gmail account
    2 hotmail accounts using Outlook app
    Auto brightness
    WiFi always on even when it's not connected
    Bluetooth on connected to MS Band 2

    Not to bad at all.

    You have at three points where your battery is gaining a charge. Something isn't right there.

    I can personally say I am having zero issues with my battery. I have been using the crap out of it for the last day and have been really happy and surprised with how good the battery it.

    Also, I never restore from my previous account. Always start fresh. I did smart Switch my photos, music, messages and phone logs. Other than that download the critical apps I use and I just download apps as needed when using the phone.

    It takes about 7 days for the battery to settle in a new device.

    Worse than expected here. Fully charged in bed while watching TV. I disconnected the phone when fully charged at around 12:30 AM. I did not pick the phone up again till 10:00 A.M . It was down to 61%.

    Whoa, that's not good. Anything running in the background? What's your brightness? BT left on? Weak signal?

    The only chance I've had to do a fair comparison, the Note 7 shined - my Note 5 has always been in Power Save mode (Not Ultra) and I take it off the charger at 100% when I go to bed at 11:30 PM. When I get up at 8:30 AM, it is at between 92% and 94% consistently. First night with the Note 7, no power save at all, same applications running, all the same background jobs... 8:30 AM - 98%! I had to look twice - I was thrilled... again, first night and that's just stand-by! Let's see what happens as time goes on but so far I am a very happy camper, and that includes more than just the battery. I am psyched with this "feuunne" (any of you remember Dr. Clouseau in the Pink Panther?) Nah, you're all too young - never mind!

    Yea that's not right. I unplugged at 11pm fully charged and picked up my phone at 11am. It was at 94%

    I'm questioning some folks because it seems like they are just quoting those odd battery reviews. I'm om 83%. Been off the charger since 10, maybe before. So I'm just really confused. This battery is bomb.
