    How long does your estimated battery says it's going to last mine never goes above 10 hrs but goes past that note 7 said would last 17hrs but this won't go past 10hrs when it's fully charged

    It really depends on individual usage patterns. If you've been using the phone frequently since unplugging it from the charger, it will assume you're going to use it like that for the duration of the charge, so that it will estimate a lower battery life than if you started off using it more intermittently.

    I think the estimate is based on the past 7 days. How long have you had your Edge?

    What's the average % that android system should drain?
    10-15-2016 02:00 PM
  9. B. Diddy's Avatar
    That also depends on your usage. If you're not using the phone much, System will be a higher percentage. If you're using the phone frequently, then those apps you use will increase their percentage use, and System will use a lower proportion. What may be more useful is to see how much total mAh it's used under "Computed power use" in the battery stats for Android System.

    195mAh is that good?

    That's pretty good. My Nexus 6P running Nougat is currently showing Android System using 354 mAh over about an hour of CPU use (17 hours of the phone being on, a good amount of it in Airplane Mode), with battery down to 67%.

    I'm quite disappointed with the battery in my s7e compared to the n7. This s7e gets super hot while using the vr, and after about 40min of use, I'm down from 66% to 22%.

    Granted, I didn't get to play with the n7 and vr too much before occlusion disabled it, but it seemed to have lasted longer than that, and didn't get anywhere near as warm. I would say the n7 got warm with the vr, but the s7e gets HOT, to the point that I get warnings after 20-30min of use that it needs to cool down to operate correctly... never saw that on the note...

    To be honest, even though Note 7 had a smaller battery by 100 mah, it lasted longer for me than the S7 edge. I was getting around 5-6 hours SOT depending on my usage. On the S7 edge, I am not able to hit 5 hours SOT consistently. Always around 4 hours ish.

    I miss my Note 7 too.

    My S7e is a refurb and not brand new, so I do not think I can fairly compare this to my N7, but I can tell you that this battery charges slower and it drains twice as quickly. I do not hate this phone, but I do not love it either. It is real hard to fall for anything after having the amazing N7 taken away.

    Go to settings, battery, and scroll to the bottom and look at what is using your battery. Do you see Google photos using quite a bit? It is the number one battery sap on my s7 edge. I'm fighting to disable it completely so it doesn't keep doing this

    At this time I do not see that as an issue.

    It is all about usage and what you have in the background running. You probably have more running in the background or have something different setting that you haven't found yet.

    I can kill mine in 3 hours if I do the wrong things. Or it can last over 18 hours if I do the right things.

    Package disabler pro can help kill services you don't use.

    Based on my usage, about 45-50 hrs. I have two S7 Edge phones so I use them both. I generally get about 2+ days with about 2-3 hrs screen time. I don't do any gaming, just apps such as FaceBook, Twitter and other apps like those and texting and a few calls.

    Here is my latest stats on S7 Edge. Battery just hit 5% so that's usually when I put it on the charger. Again, at 100%, my phone usually says about 45-50hrs remaining so this is about right on both of my edge phones. I bought both of these phones on preorder so I got them the first week of March.
