    As I sit here on the couch browsing the forums and doing stuff on my Chromecast.. This is what my stats are after taking it off the charger at work.

    This is with lighter data usage for me on mobile (about 2 GB of LTE).

    Try turning your location settings from high accuracy (GPS, WiFi, and mobile data) to low power (WiFi and mobile data estimate of location) I just tried that a few minutes ago hopefully that helps a lot also change your WiFi and Bluetooth setting those also put a strain on your battery

    Personally I'm okay with my stats. Fast charging / wireless charging solve any worry for me.

    I use the high location a lot for GPS, weather, and also smart lock. That way it works how I expect.

    I've had some other good times but usually anywhere from 3 to 5 hours of usage a normal usage cycle.

    I am pretty heavy on phones usually. I used to do 100+ GB a month on LTE but lately it's been around 30-50.

    I was having real good battery use. Like over a day on a single charge. Yesterday I noticed my battery draining pretty quick. I checked my usage and android system is pretty high. Anyone have any ideas why it shot up?android system-226.jpg

    I am having massive drain from cell standby (48%). By the looks of the screenshots you posted and others no one even has cell standby in their list. Do you have hd voice on? I don't know why this is happening but it is killing my battery.

    Yeah I use HD voice / VoLTE. I am on T-Mobile .. are you? If so, do you use WiFi calling?

    I am on Verizon. I have wifi calling off. I don't understand why my cell standby is at 48% that is crazy

    That is odd. Let me have one of our Verizon guys on the team come in and see if he is getting that on his S7 Edge.

    This is what I am seeing on Verizon.

    Cell standby 48% seems high, unless you were idling most of the time

    Hm.. I wonder if you're seeing it since you're on wifi. dpham doesn't go on wifi much so that may be why he isn't seeing it.

    But I always have been on wifi with my android phones and haven't seen this issue, 46% is not normal

    Remember that the total of all these battery percentages MUST add up to 100%. I looks like Marshmallow is dumping all battery usage that isn't directly attributable to a specific activity into Android System. My Android System battery usage is "high", but this phone is giving me better battery life than any phone I've had, so I;m not worried about it at all.

    My usage today. Only day three with the phone, and I'm still doing a lot of app installs, configuring, and playing around. No heavy game play. I have been on WiFi all day. But I don't think I've EVER gotten 5 hours of screen on time on any other phone, so to get 5 hours SOT and still have nearly 50% left is fantastic.
