    6hrs of SOT with 42% left? What brightness? And what version Snapdragon or Exynos? That sounds much better than what I'm getting. I can max out at 7 1/2hrs of SOT but it sounds like you can get almost 9.
    Auto brightness.


    My usage is mainly social apps, abit of youtube, email, light gaming and phone message.

    You think if your having battery problems, you could try Greenify Battery app from the app Store ?
    It will put some of the app programs and all to sleep. Giving you better battery life.
    you got something using the power.
    Might be a few apps using power.
    have to gone in and turned notifications for Samsung Pay off >

    I am using greenifty, then phone is getting allot better after factory reseting. Im at 67% and 15 hours on the battery. While ot could of been the factory reset my charging habits changed too. Ill post and go into detail at the end of my day.

    After the last upgrade, my phone is draining battery really fast. 100% in the morning and with minimum usage already down to 10%. Should I downgrade to previous version of firmware?

    How often do you turn your phone off And and turn it back on.
    It's a good idea to do that every now and then.

    It's not the capacity monitor, but the power usage itself. A previous update caused a Google Backup battery leak. After the May or June update for example, my battery life dropped to almost half of what I used to reach. Turning off Google back up returned it to previous levels. That points to a simple OS battery bug.

    Currently, since the June to the latest update, I noticed that mobile data and WiFi is eating more battery than they used to, with either of them on causing a battery standby drain of 4% per hour, in contrast to having them off where I go to down to 1% per hour. That's a 4x increase in usage, which simple turning on of the data should cause. I could accept that on a 4G connection in a bad signal area, but the phone on standby with WiFi should not cause that much drain IMO. Since it was working correctly before an update, that again points to a software coding error on battery usage. At this point that is the more likely explanation compared to some conspiracy theory on the manufacturers are paying up the FCC to screw the customers over, especially in this day and age where customer satisfaction is paramount to sucess. It doesn't cut it anymore to just release a good product, like Sony does every year (but they still fall flat despite devices that can arguably be said to be superior to the S7 or HTC 10 in a number if ways). Customer satisfaction and brand loyalty ate big factors, and doing a battery job like you suggest is a bad way to cultivate those.
    Definitely an os issue. Ive noticed it isnt holding a 4g signal like it was bedore the update. Whennwe would load leaks on my blackberry, this would be atributable to a bad radio file. We'd dl an earlier one . Also the Android System is suddenly draining more battery than the screen.
