    Are you Exynos or Snapdragon? If Exynos, it's pretty poor. If SD, looks just a bit below average. On my Sprint GS7E, I get 6 hrs SOT in a 19 hr period.

    wouldn't say that's bad at all.
    In comparison to what the phone was like for the first month it's less than 50% of the battery performance.

    Yup, Samsung screwed us over. Feels like a switch & bait. My SOT got cut in half too. Before, I could get 3 hrs SOT & still have 50% remaining. It was amazing.

    Is there any way to contact Samsung and tell them precisely this? The newest update has tanked my battery to half of what it was for seemingly no reason.

    Yep that was similar to mine too. Guaranteed 6½ hours screen time, no matter the use situation. If I was just using the phone to browse the internet on WiFi it would have been up around 9 hours.
    Lucky to get 4 now, and in most cases it's under 3.

    Seems like the battery does really well when it's pushed for a long time instead of off and on with the screen. I can live with these stats.

    How long does it take after getting the S7 Edge does it take for the battery life to settle down? I just got mine yesterday

    Package Disabler allow you to disable processes or apps that the stock app manager is incapable of accomplishing. I love it. My battery lasts me all day into the next after using package Disabler.

    I love package disabler. It gave me somewhat ok battery life on the S6. I'm curious to see what it will do on my new S7 Edge

    Mine's actually getting worse. Yesterday after 4 hours I had 73% remaining but the screen time was only 28 minutes. Android System was at 27% and Play Services at 22%.

    Yeah it's way too good, well worth 99 cents. Your battery life will be much better compared to the Galaxy S6. When are you planning on upgrading?

    I'm getting really good battery life myself after the first week. Coming home from work with 20% or better remaining, which is almost as good as my M8. No complaints at all.
    is always on disabled

    Is there a main battery drainer within android system that can be disabled with package disabler or is it a case of disabling lots of things which all add together to improve things?

    It's not the battery on my S7 Edge, it's Cell Standby and some problem with Google's Android system and they must sort this as a priority.

    My phone has gone from 100% last night to 75% now (13 hours later) without having used it once. No calls, no texts, no browsing, no games, no music played. It's sat there doing nothing but eat battery.

    My Nexus 4 in comparison loses about 4% in the same time period.

    Google, sort it.

    Or it could be your carrier who should sort it (they won't). I've had two updates since I got the phone last April and battery life hasn't been affected, so if you're using a phone with carrier modified software....

    I'm on a sim free version and have had 2 updates since I've had the phone. Battery life has got much worse, mainly due to android system drain I think. So as far as I'm concerned, the updates have made battery life worse!

    This is a sim free phone. As is the Nexus 4 with the same company (EE). On the same deal with each sim card.

    Cell Standby doesn't even show up on the Nexus 4 battery usage list.
