    battery settings to med...

    pixel filter off playstore set to 62%...

    I was losing 45% overnight and dealing with a red hot phone and just a couple of hours screen time if I was lucky before the above solution and about to give up on the edge 6+.......

    Its now a great useable phone and I ve ditched carrying the charger around !!!


    To be honest I cant see the point in fitting a super dogs danglies screen bar bragging rights if it consumes so much power and the settings I use still look good and having looked at milli amp consumption its dropped from a staggeringly high red hot 1150ma to 262 ma and its cool !!!

    I agree, I looked at the screen from the highest to the lowest resolution and my eyes can't tell the difference in my S7 and S8. It's not that hard to change if I wanted to watch hi res videos or whatever... I get good life from my batteries. The battery saver mode really makes a difference in battery life but not much in actual usage. I check my mail etc when I want to and it sleeps the rest of the time. No background stuff going all the time...
    Glad you sorted yours and are happy with how it runs now! Happy Days! :-)

    You downloaded pixel filter and this helped your battery drain?

    What does that app do that the OS is lacking? Thanks.
