    The 7E has a smaller screen and larger battery compared to the Note 7 so the battery life should be better right?

    I've been using my 7E for a few weeks in the same working conditions with the same use, same wifi, etc during my 10h shifts in the ER. I would usually get to the end of my shift and having around 60% on my Note7, but with my 7E I am often under 50% by the end of the shift, which is frustrating.

    How is everyone else's experience?

    Mine was better on the note 7..I used to get about 5 hours screen on time. With the s7edge I get about 3.

    The prospect of better battery life was one of the things that made the switch down to the 7E more palatable.

    Yeah, my screen time varies quite a bit, and is often much lower than my Note 7 was. Can't track down why, which is kinda frustrating.

    GSAM reports my average screen on time at 6:00 hours on the S7E. One the N7, it was 5:45.

    I haven't used the Note 7. But maybe they fixed the location services consumption with the software.

    I have noticed that if I turn off location I get noticeably more battery time. I usually use location to check in places and tag places. So I keep it off. I understand many people use it to navigate around. But if you can afford to turn it off, I'd say give it a try. It helps a lot. And turn off location history tracking from the Google app as well if you can.

    I am a heavy heavy user and I end my 24 hours day with 20% so that's good enough for me. It's what I used to get on the iphone 6s plus before it.

    And also, Snapdragon and exynos may have different milage. I have the exynos.

    Haven't really paid super close attention to it but it seems very comparable with heavy use...

    Got great battery life on both devices, the S7 Edge might be a smidge better. I take my phone off the charger around 6:30 am and it goes back on around 9 pm. I will have anywhere from 30% - 45% charge left. I'm a moderate user but this is better than what I would have with my Note 5.

    I genuinely don't believe you. That's incredible if true, care to share your combination of settings to achieve this?

    Before getting the S7E I was hearing about the battery being better than the Note 7. Those remarks were obviously from people who never used the Note 7 and only went by Battery size. The battery lasted longer in the Note 7 and quick charge was faster.

    I can't post screen shots on here but did so over at XDA.

    Close to nine hours SOT with last charge.

    Exynos version, non-rooted, TW, WiFi and 4g, location normally disabled, battery saver coming in at 15%, Auto brightness at approx. 40%, normal day involves Internet usage, some media (usually spotify), social media and the odd call (perhaps 2 or three a day).

    I don't use Facebook and have disabled it ( a known battery drainer).

    I generally don't fast charge but use wireless.

    Before charging I normally use either AVAST clean up/Ccleaner or the built in TW app cleaner to wipe cache and other bits. Gives a clean sheet for the next day.

    Anything else you like to ask I gladly answer.

    I might add that I also usually use the camera and editor once or twice a day.

    A bit confused with the sentence. Did you mean Wifi and 4G are on with location disabled, or all 3 are disabled?

    I have had Note 7 (Exynos) less than three weeks, but battery is better on my current S7 Edge (Exynos) in my opinion.

    Had the S7 edge before the N7 and now again after and always noticed from the start I get better battery life with the 7 edge.

    I got an exynos dual sim and there's no way I can replicate your screen on time that I can see.

    I recharge usually at 30-40%, having used 3-4 hrs of screen time usually.

    I think the battery in my S7E lasts longer than in my Note 7. In a few weeks that I have been using S7E since replacing my beloved Note 7, the battery life was amazing. My typical day is 15 hours and the battery still has about 40% left before I place it on the charger. I use it all day long for communication, internet and social media. I do not play games or watch movies. I use camera but don't shoot videos.

    Mostly wifi or mostly 4G?

    This is my best at my workplace, only on 4G and I force it to use that via 4G switcher so it's using a bit more power due to having to 'shout' at the cell tower

    Same here - I haven't noticed a difference in the battery life.
