    Will do. Yeah something is messing with my battery and I am not quite sure what yet. Could just be the first few days. I did a reset, last night, and overnight, the battery drained a ton too...let me know if you can diagnose it (20% drain over 8 hour period overnight)

    I'd install GSam Battery Monitor from the Google Play store. It will give you much more detailed information about what's causing the drain.

    Here it is...
    The option is there, just turn off the VoLTE preferred option. Again, if you won't use it, then there's no need for it to be on, and believe me, it does a difference.

    I just got my s7 edge yesterday. Set it all up and ready to go last night.
    Today... Off the charger at 8am from my office. Been hitting this w calls and with work activity. Then tonight browsing, a podcast, news apps...AC app, little YouTube. I'm @ 44% with 3:55 min on screen time. That's crazy!
    I'm not doing a review but my 6p doesn't do this. Idk... Only one day but impressive.

    I may write a quick impressions post based on what I think vs the s6 I had until the note 5 landed.

    You had the 6p and the note 5 and its battery is better than both? Impressive if that's the case I had the note 5 for a week and the 6p since it came out and the 6ps battery has served me very well..

    Ok question is it better to leave mobile data and wifi both on all the time? Or to shut one off when using the other. He mentioned getting better life with wifi also on and like at my work I get horrible signal I go straight to wifi when I get there but I usually turn mobile data off y phone drains quick there. I am on the M9 now. I want to get the best battery life possible. This is my 1st Samsung I can't wait to get it.

    It's only one day but I'm using stock launcher and same set up as my note. This is noticeable better than the note 5. And we'll see how it compares to the 6p which I love btw.
    But I don't ever remember being well over 5 hrs of on screen time and having 30% battery left. That's where I was at just now before I began to change it up.
    Again, way early but this is what I personally was hoping for traveling and being on the road most of the time. That 3600 batt..coupled w marshmallow couple be the trick.

    That is absolutely insane especially when you take on the fact that he was using the s7 edge with no Wi-Fi only LTE/4G.

    I'm impressed.

    Can't wait to get this beast next week.

    How do you get the menus all black like that? I'm assuming the is friendlier on the battery life than it all being white

    Thanks for the tip. Like the improved sound of VoLTE, but have found it to have reliability issues(callers can't hear me "clearly" on the other end at times) More than enough reason to leave it off.

    what i'd really like to see is the difference in battery life between the s7 and the edge since those are the two i'm considering. not sure if the extra 600mah is worth that much more.

    The larger display will naturally drain slightly more so there's not going to be an enormous gulf between them.

    So my battery life is good but not great. My note 5 seems to have better life. Ive had the phone for a few days but cut figure it out. Brightness is set on auto and I keep apps closed when not using them but my battery seems to be draining quickly. Took it off the charger about 45 minutes ago and I've already lost 4%. I'm running nova but I don't think that is it. Anyone got any tips? Think I should do a hard reset? And if so how?

    Check my posts above and turn off the features you'll never use and are running in the background, mainly Location History under Location Settings.

    6.5 hours over 12 WITH gaming is quite impressive. Games. Just kill battery in pretty much every phone. Must be that new Andreno GPU...

    Put phone on bedside table at about 11pm last night off charger Wifi off. Always on Display was on. About midnight I had a notification hit and led started blinking. I turned it off quickly. Grabbed phone this morning about 6:30am and Lookout app had scanned all the apps.

    Went from 85% to 77% in that time frame. Seems pretty good to me I guess?

    Also, what is dotted line below with 3/4 by it? Is that telling me the phone was put in doze or what?

    Went from 85
    Last night I turned off wifi, always on, location, Bluetooth and turned on do not disturb. Put on bedside table at 11pm and did not touch until 8:30am. Battery went from 51% to 47% in that time frame. 4% in 9.5 hours. As you can see previously, I drained 8% in 7.5 hours with everything on and even had lookout run a scan and had a notification.

    Doesn't seem like always on is really eating that much battery.
