    So when you talk about wiping cache where do you go? I see under internal storage clear cached data is that it? Just wanting to see if it improves my battery any.

    If you turn off the phone, then press power, home and volume up at the same time, it brings up a menu. Select the wipe cache from there with the volume up and down buttons and power button to select. Then select restart phone when it's done.

    I would also clear the app cache like you found in the storage settings.

    You have over 3 hours of Screen on Time with 51% left averaging more than 6 hours of SOT where NBA 2K16 has used 21% of it, so you have used it a lot, but somehow you think you need to get battery life?

    Hmmm sorry man, but I highly doubt that you will get better than that, Games are the #1 battery drainer on any phone, what you are showing there to me is pretty good considering the use, unless you just used the game for a couple of minutes and it just kept running in the background and drained your battery, in such case then the game has an issue, just force stop it, clear it's cache and see if it gets better.

    Are you using game launcher to reduce the graphics load when you play games? That could give you extra battery.

    Just you wait until the devs get to work on it. My S3 can get 5-6 hours screen on time with custom ROM and Kernel.

    Hi All,
    OK, another update. It seems the fast battery drain has comeback again. Left the S7 Edge, turned on, all apps closed, face down, with 69% left. Woke up 8 hours later (no use) and the battery was down to 42%. This is crazy! No new apps installed since my last test. They have to do something with this battery drain.

    Anyone have any insight?

    Thanks, I am not really having any problems but just going to see if it helps. Under storage where it says clear cache data that won't mess with any settings will it? I just know it will free up a couple gigs I think it said. How often do you guys do the cache wipe.

    If you turn off the phone, then press power, home and volume up at the same time, it brings up a menu. Select the wipe

    cache from there with the volume up and down buttons and power button to select. Then select restart phone when it's done.

    I would also clear the app cache like you found in the storage settings.

    I don't have the battery drain problem very often but many times when I set the phone down for a while or over night, I will close all apps. Obviously we shouldn't have to do this but the battery drain problem is a fairly common one and I have had that happen on every Android phone I have ever owned.

    So far I am really pleased with battery life on my S7 edge. I easily get 2 days use, which in my estimation is exceptional.
    21hrs....3:15 sot and still at 54%

    Wow !
    Can't imagine only getting a little over 3 hours on the S7E.
    I charged my phone to 100 %. Clear all the apps at the bottom left .
    Let it sit all nite and when I wake up its still around 94 % or higher on the battery rate.
    There has got to be a app that is using the battery power. I would turn Wi Fi off and try it also.
    I am getting great battery life out of my phone.
    Try to keep as much junk email and apps cleared out of everything.
    And turn it off and back on every other day to reset the memory.

    I totally agree with your thoughts. Most of the time I turn my phone off at night, and start fresh. I am just trying to test out this battery issue now. It had a fast drain, then I did the cache wipe, and the drain was normal, than a few days later, back to a fast drain. No new apps installed, nothing running in the back ground. It is just weird.
    Chatted with someone from Samsung, they said there were no known issues of battery draining. Told him to go to a site called Google, type in Galaxy S7 Edge Battery Drain, and send the results to his supervisors!

    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.
    I have noticed this as well.

    Does anyone have a scientific answer for it?
    For example, if I'm just casually texting people throughout the day I have significantly less SoT versus using the phone heavily non-stop; however I get more standby time.

    So does leaving the screen on all day use less power than the phone constantly being waken up and put back to sleep?

    Maybe I should not be worrying too much about SoT if I get 24-48 standby time?

    Well, it's kind of simple. If you use it non stop, you're devoting all of the battery life to what you're currently doing therefore 100% of battery is devoted to keeping the screen on and doing whatever else you're doing. If you use it throughout the day, only part of the power is being devoted to the screen. Standby still requires battery life. You've got to power the radios and all that. So depending on how much standby we're talking, maybe only like 50% of the battery is going towards the screen and the other 50 is going to standby. So the screen can no longer stay on as long because of the reduction of battery power. This is an oversimplification, but you get the point. That's why it happens like that.

    I've now dropped to 3.5 hours SoT. My habits are same daily and haven't installed or changed anything. New update took an hour of screen time away.
