    If the cache clear didn't do anything, see how things go in Safe Mode for a few hours.

    Hi I just wanted to know if anyone has returned the phone to Samsung due to battery life and high android system. I rang Samsung and they said next step is to get it inspected. As I have done the factory reset and has been no change.

    Thanks do you think its best if I do return? Also how much percentage is your Android system drain and how much SOT do you get?

    Search in this forum for Oculus/Gear VR issues. There's a thread dedicated to significant battery drain issues.. That *may* be your problem, and it's a lot easier to fix than having to send in your phone, FDR, or waiting on a replacment.

    I also had to disable the Gear service along with the app itself.

    Check your apps. One maybe on the internet constantly. I know for a while Facebook caused bad battery drain on a lot of devices.

    Update your Android System Webview. 54.0.2840.61. Turned the battery back to normal after the Sept update. (I think the radio is still a problem but I'm up to 12 hrs from 4, again)

    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.
    how did you reinstal the update. My s7 pushed an update and I did the update. During the update process it reached 30% and then restarted and began the update again from scratch. After I had the update android system drain is HUGE and cpu usage from that is almost constant. Could it be an failed first update the isue? And if so...how to solve it?

    Don't know if it'll make it better, since I don't use it. But my battery life is crazy good w/o disabling lots of stuff, so I'm not going to mess with it.

    It's one of those things were you won't know until you try it. Samsung loads up so much crap in the phone, and a lot of the functions get buried in the system, that it is near impossible to figure out if that extra junk is weighing your phone down or not. About the only way to tell is to get yourself a good list of safe packages to disable and try them out for a few days to see if your battery consumption improves.

    And since everyone's usage is unique, you might see improvement, you might not...

    The cell signal at the time of that screenshot doesn't look very good. Since poor signal can contribute to battery drain, it'd be helpful to see the cell signal strength throughout a battery charge cycle. You may have to install an app like GSam Battery Monitor to get that information.

    What is under the App Usage in GSAM? Was the 12% drain in 55 minutes while the phone was idle? If so, I'd suspect a rouge app. You might also want to clear both caches.
