    I have a new S7. It's now 330 and took it off charger at 1045. 3 calls, 5 minutes on Facebook and now browsing. 21% down.

    Is it the android OS or Samsung or Verizon ?
    I came from ATT where iPhone and blackberry lasted for days.

    I just came out of a Note 4 and had to buy a second battery to get past noon.

    What's the secret to living in this brave new android world ???

    I tried power save mode for 2 days and it adds less than an hour to SoT. Weird how the iphone battery is 24% smaller but lasts longer by 2 hours

    It actually it isn't a surprise when you consider how little it actually does in the background. I think very few people realize how much stuff these phones are doing when all the extra features are turned on. So to get a full day with all that stuff running is actually quite amazing.

    Not sure what to say other than you need to disable some of the junk like smart features, HD voice, Google location history (especially this one), WiFi scanning and nearby device scanning.

    With those tweaks and using a dark them I get insane battery 7 hour plus SoT easy.

    This is so far today, lots of feeding on tapa, facebook, some YouTube etc, lot of WiFi since I am at home and my reception on cellular is not so great.

    Best battery life of any phone I've ever owned. Only 3rd day with the phone, spending a lot of time installing apps, configuring playing around. No heavy gaming and on WiFi most of the day, though. But I've never gotten 5 hours of SOT on any phone before, so getting that with nearly 50% battery left is fantastic to me.

    I haven't disabled very much, either. I use this as a smartphone, not interested in turning everything off to get better battery life.

    Below is with the following.

    Auto Brightness
    LTE / Wifi mixage (more WiFi due to being at home)
    Everything running except 2-3 T-Mobile apps disabled
    Hotspot for at least 5+ hours (not heavy usage on it) since friends have Sprint and couldn't get signal elsewhere.
    No charges during the time
    A few "weak" signal areas


    To be honest .. I won't complain about this life. The battery runs REALLY well and with QC 2.0 I have no complaints.

    Today's stats... 820 radio set to lte/cdma, power saving mode auto-turned on at 20%, game launcher set to save power. Not bad but still wish we had the other cpu... why did they give us the 820 anyways? The exynos is fast enough.

    Try RSBrowser in the play store? I just installed it, plus it blocks ads automatically.

    Was getting great battery life until this morning. Nothing has changed on my phone. The last 2 days I was getting 24+ hours with 4 hours of SOT. This morning I have lost 18% of battery in just 90 mins :O

    Not sure what is going on today.

    Try turning off AOD. Is your phone going into doze mode at all? Try greenify, it has an option for aggressive doze mode. It will doze the phone in like 5 minutes of inactivity. I think 30 minutes is the default. Over the weekend I got 1d 14 hours with 5 hours SOT.

    Hey guys,

    I am trying something I read somewhere. I am turning off the edge feeds. it is the one where you swipe the edge when the display is off. They say it uses a lot of battery since the edge has to respond to touch. Maybe that is what is eating some battery for you guys when you have a lot of sleep drain? you can turn off he lighting too.... if you have you phone turned over a lot and get a lot of notifications, but I never do so I doubt it is using much battery..

    Settings > Edge screen > Edge feeds

    One month? Are you still in the return period? It would suck if you just missed it.

    I've had my Edge for 5 days and battery life is TERRIBLE. Worse than my S6 I had previously. Not sure what is going on. I started by turning off the Always On screen, then disabling every app that I can find that I don't want. And I only installed the apps that I actually use, which is less than what I had on my S6. I turned off the Edge screen feed and lighting (still have on the swiping feature to call up app shortcuts). In looking at battery usage, it says that Android System is using 45% and Android OS 16%, then the next closest thing is Spotify at 4% and a couple other apps less than that. So I can't figure out why it's draining so fast. I usually unplug around 730am and I'm at 40% by noon with little usage. With my phone not in use the last hour I lost 7% with it just sitting on the desk. So frustrating!
