    I thought I read that AOD used a special low power processor and wouldn't prevent Doze.
    It has to be able to pull notifications. For that it needs access to the system, which would require the OS to wake up.

    To confirm the S7 has doze. Here is a screenshot from my phone.

    Good to know it's there but for my S7 Doze does not work correctly. I have LG G4 that has Doze and connected to LG Urbane. every night left fully charged G4 unplugged and next morning (after 4~5 hours) it still showed 100% or 99% of battery. Now with Galaxy S7 I did same last night and woke up with 84% of battery. looked into the battery usage and Blutooth and Call standby was the mostly drained battery. I had Always On Screen enabled and believe that is the cause of this drain since LG G4 also had watch connected but didn't drain the battery with blutooth. I will test this again tonight without AOS. Let's see how it goes but not really impressed with S7's overall battery life for now.

    Mine lost 4% overnight while connected to WiFi and Bluetooth to my house phones. I thought that was pretty good.

    now we need someone to do a battery life comparison between Always On enabled and disabled. To me Always On was one good feature and if given a choice I would choose to leave it on
    I had the Motorola Droid Maxx and Turbo with the always on feature, and it was great. One of the things I miss most about those phones (battery life is the other).

    The AC guys in their recent "fireside chat" vid said that only Samsung's own apps work with the Always On feature. Is that correct? That makes the feature significantly less interesting to me, if not almost entirely useless (the clock being the lone saving grace). If there's any difference in abttery life, then, it wouldn't liklely be worth it to me to have Always On always on.

    I ordered the S7 Edge in silver from Verizon, so...

    I've been getting about 15-18% drain a nigh with AOD off. Bluetooth is on but its not connected to anything and I'm obviously not messing with my phone as I'm sleeping. When I do wake up I usually have a few notifications, could the notification light be preventing Doze? I don't have any 3rd party notification apps installed

    Charge it up before bed... leave it as you would and in the AM first thing take a screen shot of your battery stats in settings and poat it in here. We can get an idea of what is draining you battery that way.

    Doze is firing for me, but I think GSAM needs an update to track the time.

    This is with always on display off and a Gear S2 connected.

    You can't touch the damn thing if u want it to dose. Always been the case with my 6p. If any sensor like the gyro is tripped it will NOT dose. BT shouldn't be a issue and neither should the always on display but this is Samsung we're talking about.

    So it looks like the phone is using Samsung's "app optimization" feature which hibernates apps after they havent been used for 3 days, but I don't see Doze anywhere. Likewise, Gsam reported 0% Doze when I left it off the charger over night.
    It's been a couple weeks, OP. Have you noticed a difference in idle use with AOD on vs. off?

    Where is this screenshot from? Is that a 3rd party app?

    Both variants of the S7 have doze. Its a built in app that runs automatically. You will not see it listed in your app drawer. And YES, it works.

    I'm having the same problem. My phone starts beeping telling me that it's done charging and I can't disable that. The screen lights up and it makes a sound every few moments. So I disconnect. That's at 1AM. By 7AM, it's dropped to 80%. That's a 20% drop while doing nothing, on DND. So I doubt Doze is working properly. I've turned off my Always On Display so we'll see if that changes things tonight.

    OK, last night was my test without AOD. It dropped 10% from 2:30AM to 7:00AM (I don't sleep much). According to GSAM, it activated Doze for 4 seconds.

    I would uninstall GSAM and see if that helps. I am JW if that may be the issue with Doze

    Agree, its a struggle but I love this phone. Notifications or lack thereof on the A. O. D. are painful compared to the turbo.

    Doze definitely works. If it doesn't work overnight you must have a wake lock mist likely caused by another app.
