    Is there a reason the iPhone standby battery time is better? Not a complaint, just curious. My iPhone would maybe lose a percent when left at night. This one tends to use more of its battery in standby
    I believe it's to do with how iOS manages power when the device is asleep.

    So I did clear the cache.
    Battery has stabilized a bit. It's much better than the first couple of days.
    It will still act up once in a while.

    You have to wait until Doze starts running. And you can set which apps go into Doze under Battery>App Power Saving. Doze typically shuts down less commonly used apps on sleeping, and it takes a couple of days before it kicks in on the S7. With internet connection off, I lose like 3% overnight. But I have several background apps set to be ignored by the app power saving anyway.

    My phone was the same. The battery would go from 100% to 75% every night while I slept in the first couple of weeks and I admit to thinking this is bad enough to warrant me sending it back for a refund. After that initial two weeks or so the phone stabilised and it's only dropped about 2% over night ever since.

    I just did a factory reset. Hopefully it settles it a bit. So far the heat seems to have resided

    So far very good. I am able to use it without counting down the percentage in seconds

    Good to hear you got one. Just post the SOT and graph at <15% For the sake of rough comparison.

    Can you tell me if Samsung Pay is loaded on the phone? I have AT&T as well, and almost picked one up a couple days ago, but the Samsung Pay thing might bother me if it doesn't work. Any chance of VoLTE on AT&T working?

    It does have SPay and also VoLTE seems to be working as well. Calls are nice and crisp. The worst thing for battery for me seems to be my Bluetooth headphones. They make up for about 15% of my battery per day in the first 3 days. I just did a cache partition wipe so I'll see if that helps out.

    Awesome, do you know what variant / region this one was from?

    I have the Hong Kong version. The Lte works as 4g but it is not as stable as a regular Att phone. I've noticed the Internet speed or reception to sometimes be suspect. Searching for apn settings will be a hassle though

    Did you have to side load Samsung Pay? I just looked at an open box Hong Kong variant and it wasn't on there by default.

    Mine had it. I don't use it but it says Samsung pay

    Actually you're right. No Samsung pay. I never used it on my iPhone so it doesn't matter to me but Ya I guess that does suck.

    1.5% per hour is bad. But since it is a new phone wait for a week to let the phone learn about your habbits. I sleep for 7-8 hours @ night. There is a drainage of only 4%.
