    Hi everybody. I recently purchased a S7 Edge, coming from an OPO. I wanted a top range smartphone and I choose it because of the enthusiastic reviews I had read on the Internet, especially about camera and battery. While I've been very happy about camera, it's absolutely not the same about battery.
    The phone doesn't last more than 12-15 hrs of light use (no games, no 'heavy' apps, no Bluetooth, screen brightness at about 30%, most of background backup disabled). This morning, after a full-night charge, it dropped from 100% to 99% just in a minute of Twitter browsing.
    I checked in the stats and apparently there is no app draining the battery; yesterday the top energy consumption came from the screen.

    In addition, it gets easily warm on the screen and on the back (not hot), and I'd like to know if it is normal. I'm using it without any case, just as I did with my OPO, but the latter has always been cold, even during heavy use.

    I'm posting some screenshots about the battery stats in my Settings.

    There's nothing to tell. Let it run a few days until it settles.

    It's been a week today.
    Should I wait longer?

    Well we'll need more detailed battery stats, like how long was the screen on during that time. So far what you've shown us is that the duration expected for the phone is 24hrs.

    Download GSAM battery monitor and let your phone cycle a few times.
