    I recently switched over from the Galaxy Note 5. I love the Note series (had the Note 2 on up) & MAYBE I'll get the Note 7, depending on what it actually is. The fact is I'm out of school now, so I don't use the S-pen as much anymore. Plus, I'm really tired of not being able to find great cases for the Note series as I swap them out alot.
    I decidex to get the S7 edge. I swapped everything over yesterday and took it to work last night. I still haven't actually logged into everything yet (and that could be why, but I did all my important stuff, i.e. Facebook, Google, Samsung, etc..) and so the the battery life is absolutely ridiculous on this thing!!!!! I did my usual stuff lazt night at work, and on the Note 5 I would have had to plug it in at some point during the night. This thing is going like a champ!
    Now, once again, I havent started all the apps and logged jnto absolutely everything, and maybe this time I'll wait until I actually use some of the apps.....
    Here's a screenshot:

    Yeah - S7E does have great batt. life. As you say, it may drop off a bit when you sync. everything up, but I usually get 20-24 hrs with 4-5.5 hours of SOT, depending - the lower end is when I'm off Wifi all day. Even hammering it, I've never had to plug it in during the day, and that's usually off the charger at 7.30am and back on at 11pm. I don't think I've ever got into single figures.

    I agree completely! I switched over from an S5, and was concerned because the S5 had a replaceable battery. I use a sleep app that records sleep habits all night long, and the S5 could barely make it through the night. With the S7 edge I often have 60%-70% left in the AM. I chose this phone over the S7 specifically because of the larger battery size, and I'm glad I did. 😎

    I agree. I can't kill this battery in a day. The thing I find with this battery is that it starts to drain fast from 100% but is completely uniform down to 0%. My past phones dropped like a stone under 30%.

    Usually, I find the first few days are the biggest killers of a battery because you're playing with things and pretty much wearing the phone out. After that, it usually gets better and tapers off. If that happens with this phone, this thing might go for over a day...

    Edit for spelling

    I was away from android for a couple of years and just came back with the s7e and I am still impressed by the great battery life I get everyday even after having the phone for months now, the combination of marshmallow's power management with the 3600 mAh battery has delivered impressive battery life

    Mine started off strong but after 3 months and a couple of Verizon Ota updates it now sucks. Need to charge constantly throughout the day. Not happy.

    Beats my s6 hands down. I had to have a Mophie case on that thing and switch it over to the battery pack by mid-day.

    Most people do and never say a word about it. The few that do get poor battery life complain on the forums. I'm sure there are those not getting good battery life. It can happen with any phone but most people get the expected battery life from their phone.

    don't know what PJWK81 is talking about .. but battery life is good here for everyone mostly. )))

    enjoy your lovely new shiney phone. there is an option where you can set your phone to restart once every week. I put mine to monday night @ 3am. That way your phone is refreshed, performs faster. I think the setting is in advanced option or under battery. If you still can't find it then post here again

    I can guarantee most people have worse than when they initially purchased at launch. Whether it's still enough to be acceptable to most is another matter and subjective. Having to charge this phone at all during the day is unacceptable to me as I didn't have to on the first firmware.

    It looks like VZ removed the "auto restart" because it is no where to be found in settings>>backup and reset where it is supposed to be found or anywhere else in the settings

    I also came from the note 5. Mine didn't have good battery life but quick charge really made up for that inconvenience.

    But this s7e is unbelievable. Never had a phone last long (maybe the ip6+) really pleased. And that screen though...is it better or is it placebo?

    Interesting to see Chrome so much lower in % than the screen. Do you do much stuff other than browse or has Chrome really cut back in the battery it uses? My % for the Samsung browser nearly always matches the screen %, so I might give Chrome a try again and see.

    Do you have poor reception all day? Maybe you have more apps running in the background...

    I got the s7 edge and gave my note 5 to my daughter.

    Battery life has been great! I bounced between the notes and the verizon moto droids w huge battery life so ive always been kind of spoiled. The note5 was a let down for me after the marshmallow update.

    I plan on getting the note7 if the battery life is on par w my s7 edge. Hopefully the battery will be 4000mah and not 3600mah, since the note7 will be bigger.

    I mean my reception at home isn't the greatest, I get 1-2 bars as you can see in the screenshot. But at work I get 4 bars. Maybe the days I am home my battery life is worse due to reception? I will have to pay more attention to that. Any type of resolution to the poor reception or is what it is?
