    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!
    Do you have data always on or not? I get 5hrs SOT too, but only on 15-16hrs standby. Data (4G) or WiFi always connected. I could lower consumption down to 0.7% per hour on standby, but that means turning off data or WiFi. As it is I get around 3-5% per hour when either connection ie active.

    I miss the old auto data toggler apps.

    I used to use NFC tags for that on my old LG, one at home, one at work, one on the dash of the car that toggled data/wifi/bluetooth/sound/etc as needed. This phone makes it less necessary though.

    I meant the apps like GreenPower which automatically turns off data when the screen is off and on when the screen is active, and let's it turn on at set intervals throughout the day.

    Even after the OS update and factory reset, it's back as bad as ever. Sick of it now, phone has to go.

    Isn't there an option in the wifi advanced setup to keep wifi on during sleep? Can be set to always, while charging, never.

    Out of nowhere my phone battery started going down very fast.
    Don't know if its cause I bought a Tylt charger or what.
    But I went into a SWB coporate phone store, they looked at my phone and reset it.
    And gave me a business card with warranty on it.
    The reset didn't do any good.
    So I called warranty since the phone is only a few months Old.
    They sent me a new phone. and I sent them the old phone back last week.
    They said the phone has a 12 month warranty on it.

    The phone can not of been Dropped Period and can not of gotten wet. And can not of been rooted.

    The new phone is working super. Same Gold Color on the S7 Edge.
    I took Smart switch and backed everything on the phone up to my computer.

    Used smart switch to put the things on my new phone.
    Had so setup mail and a few passwords.
    But everything worked out great.

    They said they have had no complaints on the batteries of the S7 or S7E

    I was getting really good battery life, typically finishing the day with ~50% left. That typically included a few hours of screen on time and approximately 5 hours of phone calls. I updated to the latest ATT security patch on Friday night and my battery life has gone through the floor. Is anyone else seeing this? Likely going to do a hard reset to see if that will correct it, but very frustrating.

    That's wifi. Doesn't do anything about mobile data.

    Maybe it's my background apps. I got a number of Tasker profiles polling for events. And Lightflow is showing up pretty high on GSAM lately, about 4th or 5th when before it didn't even appear. Oh well. The price of convenience. Lol.

    How did u get that much did u leave WiFi and data off. What was your screen brightness
    06-20-2016 01:52 PM
  15. PetitHerisson14's Avatar
    It was mostly on Wifi only, with just few minutes with mobile data only. My screen brightness was below 50% everytime. But it's easy to have that much SoT when, like me that day, you use your phone mainly to read fanfictions and watch Youtube videos !

    This still seems to be my main issue. Don't know what it is or what it does, can find very little info about it, and others don't seem to have it on their phones at all. It still runs if you disable it in Package Disabler too.

    I still wish I could figure out how to lower OS. Most people on here are in the 20s for the OS. I'm always either in the 30s or 40s

    And really it shouldn't even be more than 10%, going by any other Android phone I ever had. Rooting might be the only way to figure out what's doing it.

    Based on this, mobile data really is the biggest eater of my battery.

    Well looks like you left WiFi direct on. That eats quite a lot of battery if left active AFAIK.

    I couldn't take the battery life anymore for my uses. Awesome media device, but I don't watch movies or youtube videos on my phone all day to see 8-10 hours of screen on time. My norm was 2hr 45min - 3hr. 4 hrs when reading or videos. I felt like the commercials Sammy used to make fun of the iphones for, wall huggers. Constantly plugged, at work, in the car, at home. The phone had to go. Sammy for me always start off well, then go downhill after carrier updates.
