    Hello, I have an AT&T s7e that I pre-ordered. I've recently been having terrible battery life. Not sure what to do at this point. These are the stats of my phone after being on standby almost the whole day. I've also been using greenify

    Sorry, it's hard to see that image clearly on the desktop forum site. Can you post screenshots this way? http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...d-central.html

    Also, in general, these are the screenshots that can be helpful:

    Charge up to 100%, then let it drain to 20-30% with normal usage, without charging in between. Then show us:

    1. The main Settings>Battery screen.
    2. The fullscreen battery graph screen (which shows Awake time and Cell Signal Strength).
    3. The Screen category (to see total Screen On time).
    4. The Cell Standby category, if present (to see Time Without Signal).

    You might have to install a 3rd party battery monitor, like GSam Battery Monitor, to get the Cell Signal Strength graph.

    (I can just make out on your screenshot that your Cell Standby category is somewhat high, so that suggests your cell signal is generally poor.)

    Hello, I have the screenshot you requested. I've had almost perfect service all night, so no idea why it's the top user. Also, every six seconds, I get the 4glte icon flashing next to my WiFi icon. Any idea what this is doing?

    I'm not sure why you're getting that. Usually, high Cell Standby battery use means poor signal. Find the graph in GSam that shows your Cell Signal Strength, and show us what it looks like over the span of an entire battery charge.

    It also seems strange to me that GSam is reporting that wi-fi is accounting for almost half of your battery usage. Do you have wi-fi calling turned on?

    Did you start using Greenify before this all started, or after?

    I'm also getting high battery usage on my s7 edge with AT&T. It didn't use too now it's really bad. It didn't even fully charge after a full night either on the Samsung Charger!

    I purchased PK package disabler from the play store for .99 and it improved my battery life by 50℅. Any high end Android device I have ever owned never had good battery life you need to tweak settings and disable bloatware to get any decent battery life IMO.

    My S7 Edge got awesome battery life today thanks to this app and wiping the cache.

    Thank you!
