    Try Package Disabler Pro. It will freeze all your bloatware. It works great and no rooting is needed. I think it costs $ 1.49

    Hello all

    New to the forum. I have had this issue myself and I have read on plenty of android sites that in the last few days a lot of s7 users are having major battery issues.

    I found the cause to be the "oculus and Samsung VR" apps, once removed my phone stopped overheating and battery returned to normal.

    I also rebooted my phone, held power+home+volume up and noticed an update actually failed, and reinstalled the update.

    It must be more than occulus as it's happening on phones without it.

    I absolutely agree with this recommendation.

    That "update failed" screen shows everytime I try to access the recovery menu. It seems to be bogus and recovery eventually appears.

    How do you use the package disabler and what do you have to disable to get better battery life

    Well it disables all your bloatware so its not running in the background
    I guess its sort of like Greenafy.

    Started having battery issues on Wednesday morning. When I left the house my phone was at 100% and when I used the phone on break 2 hrs later it was at 15% and hot. All of that and the screen was never on. Even connecting it to a charger the phone would continue to drain while on. I had to power it down for it to charge. Deleted all the Oculus VR apps and it seems to have fixed the issue. I'm guessing a new update did something because I've had the Oculus apps on my phone for several months now and never had an issue with battery drain.

    Deleted gear Vr and it got a little better, but Android system and OS still double each, what the screen is using. Also I keep getting the "not connected to network" message sporadically so there is CLEARLY a problem with the radio file. C'mon Google...did BlackBerry and Verizon suddenly take over your software division? (Sorry..reminds me if the random reset debacle if the Verizon Z10)

    I have it installed on my S7E. I tried to disable bloat on my phone but had no idea what most of the things were and if I should disable them (or if it would cripple my phone if I did). I read a thread on here saying it was a good app and would help, so I bought the app. Not sure if improves my battery life but I'm sure it can't hurt.

    Does your phone sit idle a lot?

    I think if you avoided those that aren't listed in the App Drawer, anything you disable should be fine.

    Do you think using the package disabler app will give me a better battery?

    I really don't think it's as bad as you think. As the phone sits, it's going to drain some. If you are seeing about a half a percentage point per hour, that's really good. Also, as the device sits, something is going to account for battery use. That is where the OS will be closer to the top. Once you start playing a game, all those stats will change.

    Could this be related to the Oculus battery drain issue? Have you installed the most recent Oculus update that was supposed to fix it? Or you could also try disabling Oculus temporarily.

    Have you done the usual troubleshooting steps like wiping the cache partition or booting into Safe Mode?

    I cleared the cache partition last night as I wasn't getting as good battery life before this.
