    Yep, got it. I'll be curious if this really has made the already good battery life even better.

    Hi last night I got tmobiles update for my gs7 edge ....I think it provides android security patches for the month of April. It says April 2 to be exact. And it also said it improves a ton of things like battery life,touch, and performance. Have any of you guys received the update? Notice any difference?

    It's definitely improved the screen sensitivity, and it has the April security update. Good stuff.

    Haptic feedback on screen touch (capacitive buttons) has been reduced, which I like.

    I'm really afraid to update. The update a few weeks ago really messed up my battery. My battery started to drain about 40% quicker. Tmobile exchanged the phone and I have since enjoyed the amazing battery life again. Last week the update from March popped up but since that is the update that messed up my other phone I've ignored it. Now there is an April update (not pushed to my phone yet) that mentions an improvement for the battery. Hmmmm. I am gun shy. IF I decide to pull the trigger and update. Do I have to do March's update then update to April's? Do the updates build on previous updates?

    If they build on each other, you'll first get the March update and then the April one. If not, you'll only get the April one.

    Given that your situation was fairly isolated, it's highly unlikely that the March update will cause the same issue in another phone unless the issue is something specific to that update in combination with an app.

    Personally I'm very happy with this update so far and battery life is better than it was on day 1. I didn't have a decrease after the March update FWIW. Anyway, the more I use the phone today, the happier I am with the changes. It's smoother, quicker, and the screen sensitivity and haptic feedback are both much better.

    Does battery life prediction reset after an update? If it does that would explain that horrible number.

    I hope so. I did a factory reset too. Hopefully it calms down in a day or so..

    Are you serious or kidding (just curious)?

    I understand it don't mean I will only get 10 hours of battery life, but the estimated battery life did change dramatically and it was a bit shocking to see....

    Am I missing something? You did the update at 100%? It was a heavy workout for the battery during update. Battery estimate would count that. Don't worry. Your good.

    No, I did the update and my phone was at around 50% I believe. I charged it and took that screenshot within 30 mins of taking it off the charger. I'm figuring it will take a day or so to level out. I just got nervous because if my phone is at full charge it usually has a battery estimate of around 40 hours.

    I seem to be losing a couple percent less per hour on the battery since the new update, so I'm pretty happy with it.
