    These 2 videos demonstrate the battery life and usage for the Korean manufacturer's own Samsung octa core, Exynos 8890 chip that is installed on all their Global and Canadian S7 and S7 Edge models and already labelled by some as, "The Beast from the East".

    Have you cleared Apps cache on Settings-Storage and Wipe cache Partition on recovery menu? If not, do so, it's always recommended to do at least a Wipe cache partition after every OS Update.

    Also, just double check all things you may be disabled, like bloatware or other services and apps that could have been reactivated after the update, I have seen that before and it may be the difference you are seeing.

    Hi All,

    Still having quick battery draining issues. Just did Cache Partition Wipe. Will see what that does.

    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.
    Then you definitely should have a system app or feature causing the extra drain, problem with that is that most of the time those are all mixed into the Android System bucket and that makes it even harder to pinpoint.

    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.

    APEX is Best

    Hi All.

    Another update. I did another overnight test, AFTER wiping the system Cache, all apps closed, not plugged in, face down, for 7 hours. The last 2 nights, I lost over 20% each night. After doing the Cache wipe, I only lost 4%.

    I think the Cache wipe helped. I will charge it fully today, and see how it lasts.

    Yeah sometimes it's best to clear out cache on case there's a faulty file or something that constantly keeps the phone awake. I'm still trying to figure out why mine isn't doing as well anymore and I've already done two cache wipes.

    Well I noticed that if i try to get a lot of stand by time for the phone,then I won't get good on screen time. For the past 8 hours I have used the phone a lot, not much stand by. So far SOT is 5h24m and have 38% left.
    When the phone is mostly idle and only casual use i get about 3-4h SOT and stand by of 24-35h overall time before battery dies on me.

    Well the OIS in the camera applies effect to the video like there would be water in lenses. Software OIS eliminates this but if you disable the software OIS the effect is apparent.
    Just heard it works as intended?

    I'm wondering 2 things.
    1. How does the Exynos get 20% more battery average?
    2. How does the iPhone with a 30% smaller battery get 2 more hours SoT even with power saving enabled on my S7?

    Alternatively. the Exynos octa core is a more powerful processor than the overclocked quad core Snapdragon 820.

    Apple has engineered the software to work with custom hw they make for it. So it is extremely efficient system.

    I own the exynos variant of the s7 edge and here's what I constantly get after a month with the phone:
    With wifi only : 8-9H SOT
    With cell data only : 6H SOT
    Mix of both depending on the usage 6-8H SOT

    Some of you may ask me what kind of setting is set on my phone well here's the list :
    - Bluetooth is on sometimes
    - GPS off
    -AOD off
    - Power saving off
    - Brightness on auto
    - All my notifications/sync are push

    But the common problem I found with battery drains comes from Facebook and instagram. I told my friends to set the ''auto play'' in the settings to ''wifi connections only '' and most of them definitely found a better improvement over their battery.
