    Today was a good battery day. I really hope things don't change with the recall exchange. I watched YouTube for a while this morning. Researched a bunch of stuff online, mainly guns. And went through some forums. 4 Gmail accounts set to push. Everything syncing. Bluetooth on and connected to a gear fit 2 all day. WiFi on the whole time and connected part of the time. NFC on. AOD on. Auto brightness. I'm on Sprint with the SD820 variant.

    Here we go. Just when I was about to accept my 4 hours of sot with a smile, you have to do this to me. 7 hours?!!!!!!! How the heck is this possible? (by the way, it's a long time too. You're a pretty heavy user!)

    If only I could understand how you get this.....

    Do you guys think the black theme helps with the battery? I just can't explain it!!! You literally get double the battery time than I get!

    Dark themes are generally considered battery friendly for AMOLED screens.

    I don't know why my battery life was so good yesterday. The only thing I didn't do was play games. I was to busy looking at other stuff and watching videos. My SOT has varied from just over 3 hours to what you see here. It never seems to be the same even with the he same general use. I didn't realize my SOT was so high yesterday until I noticed I hadn't even plugged it in while at work.

    I think it helps a small amount. Not a ton since most apps still aren't dark and the videos I usually watch and games I play at times aren't affected by it. Mostly I just think it's easier on the eyes. Especially at night.

    Well I'm curious to see how this evolves. If you could report back today after your day of use to compare?
    Maybe your battery gets better and better as you use your phone more and more? I've read somewhere that they function a bit like a muscle. The more you use them the stronger they get at the beginning.

    I cannot understand how you all are getting 4+ SOT. I have had the phone for a week now. It is very consistent, I get somewhere between 2.5 to 3 hours SOT with 20% remaining at the end of day. I am at least an hour off from you all. I have turned off WiFi Scanning, disabled some of the ATT bloat. Not using any power mgmt. profile yet.

    Any suggestion are very welcomed :-)
    I get 5 hours a minimum
    1st pic is not home so turning mobile data on and off throughout the day
    And the send pic is at home all day connected to wifi

    You must have you luminosity very low. I keep mine around 75% and the power consumed by my screen is almost twice yours (usually between 1600 and 1800 mah by the time I have 1% battery left)...

    Sprint just released a software update and part of it is improved battery life , although been pretty good for me multitasking, wifi calling is also part of the update

    This isn't exactly a battery optimization note here, but I have come across this battery temp alarm app that might help a run away battery from getting too hot...

    Here are today's stats so far. Less YouTube today but more Live Leak with chrome. Everything else was comparable.

    So you can see my SOT was only 3 hours and I did charge for a whopping 10 min when I went to grocery store. I didn't even need to but force of habit.

    Damn good. Now if I was on it for 5 hours of SOT I'd probably be able to grab 12 hours total.

    I am also connected to Gear Fit 2 and wifi on, location on power saving.

    I keep it on auto brightness all day.

    Like I said it I didn't really do much with the phone for a lot of the day. Spent half the time I normally do on email and text. Wondering if because it's the weekend or Holiday for us if lack of emails being sent to me makes a difference as well.

    I only charged for 10 min which I think added 8% when I checked.

    No power saving either. I just wasnt picking it up as much as I normally do that day.

    Good battery, hope my exchange will be as good or better! 100% battery gives me 6hr47min sot, usually I charge around 25% which I'm usually at 5hrs sot.

    The second pic is from last night where I finally was able to get less then 1% battery usage per hr overnight.

    Mines usually always above half way sometime throughout the day I put it auto and at night I put it pretty low

    The Note 7 does not seem to have very good data radio reception. This is why I think there are big deltas with people comparing to their past devices and also seeing disparities one day to the next with the Note 7. If you are in a strong network area (at least four bars), very good battery life. Three bars or less and the battery drains.

    Yep, I know dBm signal is the measure, but three bars or less correlates to -100 or more plus dBm.

    My recent previous device radio signal rankings from best to worst:

    1. Razr Maxx
    2. MXPE
    3. Note 4
    4. Note 7 (about 5 dBm less than the Note 4).

    75%? Is this outdoors? Indoors that's gonna burn out my corneas! ;-)

    I keep it on Auto, but I make minor adjustments as needed. That means it's usually around 30% indoors and 100% outdoors.
