    I just got my s7 edge and the battery is not lasting as long as I feel like it should be. I've heard people that go 12-24 hours on a single charge and that just isn't happening with mine. I left it off the charger for a night and the battery dropped by 15%! As I'm using the phone I see the battery drop before my eyes.

    I've wiped the cache, done a factory reset, disabled a bunch of draining options but nothing seems to help. I'm considering returning it for another s7 edge but figured I would see if this is normal for the phone first.

    First time posting so if I'm missing anything please let me know.

    If you just got the phone, let it charge a few cycles. My battery got stronger after a few full charges. Also, check your signal strength

    may be you need to calibrate battery .
    for this just drain out your battery completely and change it while turned off . do this two three times and then done

    I'd suggest to not let the battery drop below 20/10%.

    They don't tend to like draining all the way down.

    Not normal for mine. I left mine unplugged the 2nd night I had it, after charging to 100%. It lost 3% in 7 hours, and that's been consistently the case every time I've tested it that way. I run BT and Wifi all the time, location off, wifi searching off, I don't use any social media apps on my phone like FB, etc. Stock phone, no disabler, no greenify, no doze apps, run TW. VERY impressed with the battery life on mine.

    One thing to try is dumping your cache. Settings->Storage. Touch cache and confirm delete. You may want to dump the cache in the recovery mode, too (hold down the vol up, home and power buttons at the same time from a powered off phone to get to recovery).
