    Yea. There is no doubt use case is a factor . I actually use My Knox. That is a damn hog, but at the same time it isn't any worse then trying to manage two pbones. My point was simply we shouldn't discount someone's experience or worse call them a lier because our use case prevents us from getting a similar experience.

    I agree Mavrick,

    However, there are way to many variables to be exact but most can get a general idea using peoples numbers in this thread if you eliminate some outliers. I have the GOOD app for my corporate email and that thing is a battery hog. Also have bad signal in my office because my tower is close but it is on the other side of the building. The price I pay for this view...LOL

    The GOOD app. UGH. Every time I get frustrated about my 3 hours of SOT vs everyone else's 6, I need to remind myself that this atrocity has to be on my phone for work. Anyone have an idea what kind of battery waste this app is causing?

    For many, many reasons the most inappropriately named app...

    No. Nova. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

    After much dismay and using Nova for over 7 years, I had to let it go. Long story short, Nova Launcher was keeping my phone awake the entire time the phone was on. I am NOT saying that it's everyone's problem, but unfortunately for me and MY phone it was causing my phone not to deep sleep. After removing Nova, I began to setup Touchwiz, my phone rebooted by itself and the phone was super warm. After removing it, my phone now sleeps like a baby. I expect that my massive drain will end. Again this may not be everyone's problem, but for me I had to let it go. Sorry Nova, Touchwiz works just fine for me right now.

    I always used nova and have it on my phone but have been using TouchWiz for now. I was thinking about setting nova up this weekend. I always love the swipe down anywhere to get notifications. I wish there was a way to do this stock.

    Well today my phone lasted 11 1/2 hours and to me that was great and I used my phone quite a bit before work and some during work but my SOT said 4 hours and something. But I always have a charger with me or my wireless pad so I am good and at 11% I dropped it on the charging pad at work. Left with 60% I was good. It's better than my M9 was so I am good. It's still the best phone we've ever had.

    Moved some apps to my sd card.
    Bluetooth on connected to my gear s2 classic.

    I use the app metal for my twitter and Facebook as I don't need it syncing constantly.
    Also I have 3 Gmail accounts of which 1 is constantly synced the rest are set to manual.

    As well as one email using the stock email which is set to manual sync .

    Am really happy so far.

    3rd day. I had power saving mode on all day, set radio to lte/cdma, and in game launcher set games to save maximum power. This is on the 820.

    Here's mine. No power saving or turning off data. Some wifi but mostly 3g/4g. This is the best battery I've ever used. After using the Galaxy s6 for a year, this is a welcome upgrade.

    Have you tried turning "VoLTE/HD Voice" OFF?

    I wonder if some of the variability we're seeing in battery life is in manufacturing variables or QC in production. Too bad it's not easy to pop in a different one and see. Users shouldn't have to turn off all the features that made their device desirable in the first place.

    I've gotten really used to the 7000 mah zerolemon on my S3. I hope when my S7E comes in it is on the high side.
