    Has anyone experienced more than usual battery drain with Bluetooth? I've had Bluetooth on for all my previous devices as well since I use it with my car and fitness band, and on S7 edge Bluetooth share is showing in the top3 most battery draining apps on Gsam. It is draining 6-7% each cycle.

    Interesting part is that it shows Bluetooth itself draining only 1% on gsam but the app Bluetooth share is the one draining the battery. Is this a Samsung thing?

    I am using T-Mobile version with SD820 if that matters.
    I get pretty good battery life on mine. I'm on tmobile as well getting 5 to 6 hours of screen time. I usually have my gear s2 and headphones connected and the Bluetooth is always at 7 or 8% of my battery. I'm coming from an iPhone but I don't remember this being as high on previous android phones.

    I've never ever once seen bluetooth show up on my battery stats and I keep it on 24hrs a day as it's connected to my Gear S watch.

    I swear some days the battery life of this phone is beyond anything imaginable. Granted I was on WiFi and just reading the forums but this is a pretty common pattern for me as I like to read on the device due to its screen size.

    It's still good battery life but the Bluetooth is strange.

    My gear S2 definitely impacts battery life but even then, it's not bad. Like 4 hours of screen on time and 24 hour stand by. 2x improvement from my S6 Edge +.

    If I disconnect Bluetooth and my Gear S2 Doze actually works. Otherwise, it never dozes.

    It's hard to see what the BT percentage is n your screen cap, but it shouldn't be that high. As I said above, my phone is connected to a Gear S watch all day everyday and I never see BT on the battery stats.

    I have a second S7 Edge that actually is getting less battery usage then the S7 Edge connected to the Gear S. That second phone has BT turned off and when I got the second phone, I used Smart switch to copy everything from the first S7 Edge so they were identical in every way, just different sim cards.

    Mine shows Bluetooth at 2-3% with my Gear S2 connected for a full day, so it seems normal.

    Actually, the Gear S2 probably drains about 10% a day from Android System as well.

    After figuring out the correct method of measuring screen on time, I let my battery get down to 10% yesterday and the battery screen said I had achieved
    4 .25 hours of screen on time with still 1 hour left on the device at the 10% mark, for a total of about five and a quarter hours screen on time. I noticed a particular app that was taking up a lot of my battery life which I didn't particularly need on all the time, so I turned it off and did the exercise again. This time I got just short of 6 hours screen on time, 5 hours 50 minutes. From what I'm reading, this is in line with the high amounts that others are achieving.

    This, by the way, is way more than I need, because my typical habit is to keep a wireless charger at my desk, and when I'm not using my phone, keep the phone on the wireless charger. So I rarely get below 50%. It's good to know that in some emergency situation where I don't have a charger, I'm probably okay.

    Today has been unusually good. I hope it stays this way. Verizon. Also today my android system has been lower than usual so that could be why.

    I bought my S7 edge last weekend. I upgraded from the S6 edge, which I absolutely loved. Except for the battery life. I was really hoping that I wouldn't be disappointed with the S7 battery. I am happy to say that I am more than satisfied with the S7 edge. This battery is a beast. It's even better than my iPhone 6 plus, which I thought had a great battery. Nice job Samsung!

    I have the S7 edge since release. I love the camera. I have noticed the past 2 weeks or so my battery is not lasting as long. I am unsure why as i have not changed anything. I take it off the charger around 6:30 a.m. it sits at my desk at work until 4:40 p.m. i usually can get away with 93% left by 4:40 p.m. Now it is around 85% when i leave work. I am not on the phone alot during the work day as i dont have time to be. I am wondering if anyone else has noticed a battery decrease?

    Have you received an update recently? if yes, then go to Settings-Storage and clear apps cache and then turn off the phone and enter into Recovery menu by pressing and hold , Home, Volume Up and Power button until you see the recovery boot information, once it boots into it, just select Clear Cache partition and reboot.

    Full charge it and give it a day or so to see how it behaves.

    It's weird, I did exactly what you said about a week ago. Then a couple of days ago as my post quoted, I was at 55% and at 5 and a half hours of screen on time. And then it hasn't been that good since.
