    Trying to figure out why all of the sudden this comes up. No battery stats? Today was best day of the 4 I've had it. Puzzling.

    I"ve noticed the battery is better too. It doesn't drain as quick. Must have something to do with the new update they released.

    Well I plugged my phone in before I went to bed and in the middle of the night I saw the green light on so unplugged it... When I woke up this morning my phone was at 96% from just sitting there. This normal? I had a email, Facebook, an weather notification.

    Depends how much is updating over night. It doesn't sound like that bad of a drop to me.

    After a week, battery life on my replacement is the same as my original. On both, right out of the box, battery life wasn't that great but improved over the course of a few days.

    Im really beginning to miss having a swappable battery. This is my first phone with a permanently mounted battery and I really dislike it. On a normal day to day basis, it's ok. But on weekends or vacations when I'm out with the family, it's really a pain not being able to pull out a spare. Heck, I'd pay a premium for a thicker, plastic backed, non dust/water resistant Note series with a swappable battery. But sadly I know that day will never come.

    My battery has now settled down and my battery life is the same as my original Note 7. I am pleased.

    Well I don't really have an power saving settings on so I guess there is a lot going on even while the phone is just sitting there... If this seems normal then I guess it's no big deal I was just wondering, coming from an iPhone 6 which would charge to 100% an stay there for a while until I actually used the phone..

    Something is definitely not right with the battery system and reading battery life.

    I was at 82% at 8am after being off at 530am. Not a big deal. I plugged in for 10 min and was at 92%. But when I went to look at battery info it was was off and said that I had unplugged at 830. That's when I plugged in for 10 min. I wasn't fully charged at all. So all the stats reset? Then both screens say something different.

    My Note 7 battery is not good as well. Although this is my first ever Samsung device, so I have nothing to compare it with except for an iphone. At most, I will get about 9 hours. Is that normal? I am reading through everyone else response saying that their replacements have excellent battery. Should I return mine?

    How many hours are you getting? I am only getting 9 hours. Seems a bit little for me.

    You can see here that there are zero battery stats listed for apps that normally appear here.

    This is the SECOND day in a row my battery hit the 60% mark and these stats suddenly disappeared. I dont get it.

    The other photo is of the box. Not even sure if this is a replacement device. Software did change the battery icon to green.

    Confused. Anyone else have issues with battery stats disappearing?

    My box has 1 black square upper right corner.

    SMN930VZKB is also on the box.

    There is no writing or stamp on box saying it's a replacement.

    This is my first experience with a Samsung phone. When you said battery life improved over the course of a few days, how many days? I'm experiencing not so good battery life myself. This is my 3rd day with it so wondering if it will get better, and if so, how much longer?

    Deciding whether or not to exchange it for another one since I have 2 weeks to return.

    Anyone know if this means it's a replacement? Any other VZW users have the same type of Box? Just the black square in upper right-hand corner?

    I think the difference, the original Android battery estimate included standby time. The Samsung calculation is screen on time.

    That is a guess.

    My battery was depleting too...so I reset to factory and loaded only those apps that I use daily. So far so good (knock on wood). If it goes down hill again though, I might be making a trip back to ATT.

    Got my replacement the other day and am getting about 7 hours 45 minutes of screen on time my first full charge without any battery saving settings turned on. I'm extremely happy with that. We will see if that changes over the next few days.

    On the first Note 7 it would decline really quick and sometimes the phone would jump from 60% to 0%. It was really annoying but I guess that was the defective battery.

    Any problems so far? I was unhappy to read about the Japan replacement battery failures. Samsung seems to have a really bad problem here and I am worried about investing a significant chunk of cash into what could be an ongoing disaster.
