    Recently I've been noticing that my battery has been draining faster than I think it should. It's nothing too excessive, but it's noticeable and enough of a drain to make it questionable. With a 3,600 mAh battery, I think I should be getting better stats than this. I've heard much better results from other S7 edge devices. Note that I have already tried resetting the phone, disabling Wi-Fi and Bluetooth scanning, and disabling apps. I am a little bit of a heavy user though. I just downloaded GSam so I do not have those stats yet.

    We're you on WiFi or mobile data? And if you were how is the service area where you are? What your getting isn't good. Right now I'm sitting at 49% and I've already past the 3hr SOT mark with 11hrs up time. I've been mostly on WiFi though.

    I am on WiFi. The service around me isn't very great, but I do get 2-3 bars of LTE.

    If this makes you feel better I take my phone off the charger at 6:30am and by about 8pm I'm attached to a charger because I'm at 5 percent. My SOT is like 1hr 45- 2hrs.

    What annoys me is that I know a lot of people get way better stats than this and they didn't do anything to their phone. This makes me wonder if replacing the phone will fix it. I don't want to have to do anything that will make things inconvenient or annoying.

    Cell Standby is using a large amount, what is happening most likely is you are dropping in and out of good coverage, causing the high battery drain.
