    Looks like app usage is pretty high.
    And do you cut your phone off and cut it back a couple times a week.
    And delete your history out of your Internet app and google.

    When you go to sleep turn wifi off.

    If you're talking about me, I don't think my app usage is high
    And if by "cut your phone off and cut it back" you mean restarting it, yes I do it many times a week
    And I kind of need my history of Chrome, but what will it do if I delete it out of curiosity ?

    When I go to sleep, I turn on Airplane mode, turn off Wifi, turn on power saving mode and use the night clock
    With that, I only lose about 3 to 5% by night, instead of 15-20% before my factory reset and with Wifi on

    I still need to figure out how to turn Sims Freeplay off from running in the background after I have stopped playing it. Really don't need more days with it at four hours and 51% usage of my screen

    Is that an S7? Your notification bar icons look different.
    S7 edge. Good Lock changes the status bar icons.

    Have you tried disabling Good Lock and see if it improves battery life?

    Yeah, but it makes no difference. It has been terrible since the last big OS update even before I ever installed Good Lock, it's all that Android OS Stay Awake doing it but never pinned it down to anything.

    Do you use the "Exit" button in the game before you stop playing?

    I've noticed something. For some reason when I charge through a cable, my phone drains so much quicker than when I charge through wireless. I can't figure out why that is though

    that's odd, since the April update, mine has been exactly the opposite.

    changing through wireless just tanks. charging from the cable is a bit better, but still not even close to what it used to be.

    Exactly the same as you. Get a bit more from a cable charge but I'd say both a cable and wireless charge combined these days wouldn't match what I used to get before the April update.

    I don't know why that is though. It's happened for a while now so I can't really remember when it started. Every time I charge through wireless, it lasts longer, but whenever I charge through cable, it plummets faster than normal. It does it with or without fast charge enabled and I only ever use the original charger so I don't understand why. I usually only charge through cable at work and wireless at home, so maybe I need to invest on another wireless charger for work :/

    I don't know what happened today but for the first time in over a month my Stay Awake time for Android OS is what it should be. It's sitting at 29 minutes where normally at this time of day it would be at least over 11 hours (I also have 39% remaining battery instead of being on charge already).
    No updates or anything like that. Strange.

    Having apps that actually run in the background has a price.

    Oh and there is currently a bug with Doze where the Google Backup in the Backup And Reset settings seem to be keeping the phone awake rather than letting it doze.

    Looking a whole lot better since the software update. I'd always have lost far more than 5% overnight and that screen time would have been my limit lately.

    The setting is on the main battery settings screen near the bottom. Above where you can turn on/off fast charging.

    When using chargers. I would only select Samsung Chargers.

    I bought a after markey charger. It was giving me some problems.
    Battery started acting up.
    Went and bought a Samsung Charger.

    I forgot to so a screen shot of my battery stats, but as of recently, my battery has gotten better. I've had over 5 hours of SOT and about 21 or so hours of standby ... this is better than its been for the past couple of months and I suppose package disabler pro has done the trick to fixing whatever issue I was having before. I am hoping it stay this way and even improves!
