    my replacement was working amazing. battery much better than first one. ended the day with 30%. All of the sudden today battery gone at almost 2pm battery almost at 20%. Didn't download or did anything different. Maybe it's an app update. Coming from an iPhone. i have to admit the OS didn't have such issues. very dissapointed and not sure what to do.

    No issues with my replacement so far. Just a little better than my previous Note 5. Max brightness no wifi, no bluetooth, no NFC, no GPS. Getting an average of 12-15 hours before having to plug in.

    Granted im not a super heavy user, but I do use my phone without worrying about the battery. My battery life is great at the moment. When I leave work im normally around 70%. I try to drain my battery before bed, but its a hard task. I regularly get 5-6 hours sot.

    I've never gotten anywhere close to 5-6 hours and I often wonder how in the world any of you ever do. 4 hours I would be very impressed with.

    I believe the issue you're having is related to your apps something's causing your android system to be at 33% that's not normal that's way too high. have you tried factory install?

    I really don't do much. I change my screen to basic mode because I don't like the over saturated, cartoon colors. Then I debloat with package disabler pro. No other changes. I leave, Wifi, bluetooth and location on (power savings mode).

    Mine is eating up battery fast too and I just got it yesterday. It was reset, and I setup new and added my apps to it. My S7 Edge is still at 90% for the day, and my Note 7 I've already had to charge it once.....ugh! Any ideas?

    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.
    Almost 8 hours of screen on time? Are you sure that wasn't off battery time? Do you have a screenshot of that?

    From your picture looks like you got bad signal. Bad signal kills battery hardcore.

    Could be an app... if was ok one day then next day draining maybe you got an update around that time? That's why I try to not do mass updates at one time when available. Had a similar issue and then wiped system and was ok until I installed all apps. didn't keep track of the apps I installed so after I wiped system again and slowly installed/tests phone with each app I found the culprit... and app that was recently updated. I believe I waited for another update of that app before reinstalling it.

    My replacement N7 started out like a beast. I have had it 8 days. Battery life, while still decent, has been declining daily. It's still better than my original N7 though but I hope the decline levels off here.

    As someone else mentioned, it looks like you had a weak signal in the screenshot. Was that at a location you're in all the time? When the phone has to keep seeking for a cell signal, that drains the battery in a ridiculous way. I have always gotten more than 5 hours on my N7 (original and replaced).

    Weak LTE signal is like having an extra display on with high brightness.

    I was willing to deal with average battery life given how powerful and feature-rich the OS and hardware are, but alas... it's been stellar. 8.5 hours into my workday and 75% remaining.

    Watching videos like the ones linked below... they say standby time is terrible on the new Note 7 with new batteries. J.Williams is actually doing a live stream where he follows up and said standby time is still an issue with him. Curious to see how many people have started seeing that on their replacement Notes. J.Williams says SOT ok... but it's the standby time that stinks.

    I am not having the issues that some are. However I WAS and almost returned it. I did a FDR and then reinstalled my apps. But this time, instead of downloading a bunch of apps all at once, I looked at all of the ones that use consistently.

    Those I downloaded. Then I slowly added more over last couple days.

    Now you can see from this my battery was excellent. My phone did restart itself for some reason this AM and I did charge it but for only 8 min in my car (I'm used to just plugging it in when getting into car but didn't want to for test. Forget. So 8 min on my car charger ).

    My SOT in this case was only 2:48 BUT I ended up reading a lot of stuff on forums and FB using Chrome so I brought it down to 25% after 16.45 hours on and 3:58 SOT.

    I would estimate I'd get 4:50-6 hours of SOT draining it all the way down if I did so with total battery time of over 18 hours.

    Very very good.

    Give it 1 full week. If it doesn't correct itself then return it. I know I almost did. It was getting hot too often and dropping between 60-20% rapidly.

    The FDR seems to have helped. I have very weak cellular signal at my house so that may be causing part of the issue as well, I never thought about that. Anything I can do about that? Although I wasn't home yesterday when my battery went crazy.

    Interesting about by passing Smart Switch.
    I would like to do a clean install but the only transfer all I really need is contacts transferred.
    How can I transfer contacts as a "clean" install?
    Any other transfers that could be made for a clean install and if so how do I do the transfer?
    Appreciated, thanks.

    That's interesting. I went off charger last night at 10 pm and my battery was at 96% when I left for work at 9 am today. That's only 4% battery loss over 11 hours on standby (on but no use).

    I've had mine for 1 week now and the battery has been great. Took it off the wireless fast charger this morning around 7am (now 12:50 pm), at 80% and it says the estimated remaining time is 19 hrs 36 min. Ive been on it quite a few times throughout the day texting, email, facebook and so on. Honestly my original Note 7 had great battery live as well.
