    Location setting is very important for stand by drain. Make sure to keep things like location history, improve accuracy turned off. That will hurt stand by drain if enabled. You don't need them to use any location based apps. Also don't use smart network switch under WiFi if it's there in setting. Some carrier model has it and some others don't have it.

    Ok first I wouldnt focus on the "android system" taking up 27%.From the look of your results it just means you didnt do a whole lot besides use the phone as a phone so to speak. Your screen on time however is not good at all. Right now I have almost the exact time off the charger as you but I have an hour more screen on time and double your battery (I streamed music for 3 hours so todays battery stats suck).

    You say youve wiped the cache partition, did a factory reset etc etc.So that isnt going to help. What I do see though is your cell signal is low. Are you in a strong reception area or is it always below half? Cell reception will absolutely destroy your battery if its nonstop working to keep signal.

    So you know, Im not trying to brag about my battery compared to yours. Just letting you know it is possible to get great life out of this phone, just gotta figure out whats causing yours to go nuts. I turn alot of stuff off because I dont use it so I'll give you an idea of my settings and see how they compare to yours. Remember, I dont use the stuff I turn off so some of these may not suit your needs. These are the settings that should make the most difference.

    Display:
    I use AMOLED cinema mode for screen mode, auto brightness, timeout after 30 seconds, smart stay off, always on display on only at night normally while on the charger, touch key light 6 seconds, keep screen turned off toggle off, screensaver off.

    Advanced Features:
    I turned off all the sensor related gestures in the adavnced features tab. pop up view, smart capture, palm to swipe etc etc. I dont like any of them.

    Privacy and Safety:
    I only use location when I need it but even with it on I still get over 6 1/2 hours screen on time. Report diagnostics off

    Google:
    Nearby off, search & now > voice> "ok google" detection from the google app and from any screen toggles on. Trusted voice off.

    NFC is also off because I use Samsung pay instead of Android pay. Im not sure how much NFC affects the battery.
    I don't use the AMOLED Cinema display I use the adaptive display would that make a difference?

    It will make some difference, not sure how much though. Its always changing so in a sense its always working.


    Edit: NM I just saw your other screens and your cell reception is full.

    I dont know how long youve had the phone but if its me I exchange it if possible and if thats not an option I call Samsung. Youve done literally everything Ive done and your getting half the battery. Im at a loss man.

    What brightness does your phone normally run and is your wallpaper bright or dark?

    Ya my signal is usually never good. My home I have 2-3 bars. At work I have 1-2 tops. I work inside a school, in the data room with the servers and network switches. I'm a tech admin. I was only on the phone with Dell for like 20 mins today.

    Id bet money its your cell signal then. Try turning off hd voice and see if that helps as well.

    On your next day off use the phone similar to how you use the phone at work. Id bet you see a decent increase in battery life. Schools are notorious for draining batteries. I dont know what they do but as soon as I walk into my kids schools my signal dumps.

    I think it's just the thick walls. And the roof blocking the signal. Tmrw I'd like to use my watch. And I should have 2-full bars all day tmrw. I'll post another one. I have a buddy who has the s7 edge I'll ask what his screen on time is. He is on verizon as well.

    Sorry I cant be of more help, its a great phone when its doing what it should. The only other thing I can suggest is if it does better away from work and proves to be a signal issue, grab a small usb power bank and keep it on your keychain or something.

    No doubt, like I said I've had multiple Samsungs. And used to work for them until I got the admin job at the school. Now is your phone a international model or US model s7 edge?

    US Model, At&t. I have pretty decent signal almost everywhere I go.

    I have signal everywhere I go also with verizon, can't complain. But the Samsung processor international verison tends to be quicker, lighter on battery, and run cooler. I would be willing to go to AT&T and getting an international verison s7 edge if I had too. Because I know this phone has amazing potential. Honestly the best looking phone ever made as well.

    Ive heard some people having major issues with the Exynos version on at&t. LTE specifically and from what I understand no wifi calling which is huge to me while Im on vacation.

    I go to Puerto Rico a decent amount and the service at my uncles house is horrible. I have to be able to use my phone for business calls even on vacation so wifi calling saves my butt. I never really need it while Im home.

    Yes a low signal will absolutely chew through a battery. While you are at home, most carriers have some good options for a stronger signal at home. Some carriers offer very good options for free.

    Ok.. Verizon.. It has less options for a signal booster than AT&T or T-Mobile.

    Also the international versions you lose some LTE bands. Also you are out of luck with Samsung service, Samsung USA won't support and last I heard, won't even repair for pay. That leaves you with no warranty unless you buy it from someone here that offers a warranty.

    When I was with AT&T, 2-3 bars was low enough to drain my battery and I got a microcell, but they only had 3G. I think you can buy microcell that will work on any service, but they are expensive and don't quote me on them working for Verizon.

    Verizon does have an extender, it isn't great and it really only helps for phone signal at home.

    Your options for at least boosting your signal at home would be better with AT&T and much better with T-Mobile.

    If you are experiencing the same drain when you have a good signal, then I agree with Tyler, do an exchange or send it to Samsung.

    Okay thanks so much for the information. I don't have a normal hardline Internet connection at home. I have a Verizon 4g LTE modem with unlimited data. The cell booster is super expensive. And t mobile, I can stand outside with the phone in the air and get 0 service. Att and verizon is really the he only decent option. Around me. I have tried verizon and friends have had att and they always go back to Verizon for my area.

    The Verizon booster might work with that, but that is the minimal one that is free or very cheap. You should check with customer service.

    The AT&T is only 3G, it is useless for data but great for a signal but requires an internet connection, the T-Mobile one has a couple of options, one doesn't require internet, but does require some signal.

    Here is what I see on the Verizon site. It seems like there used to be another.

    There are some cheaper alternatives toward the bottom, don't know if they will work for you or not.
