Battery life fell by three hours on its Wi-Fi browsing test, and five hours on the video test. HTC and Sony only began to roll out Nougat last month and both were also hit by technical issues."

    I can assure you that's not a norm. I've had the best battery life ever since I've updated to nougat. Not much else I can say. It's always been like this with Samsung. Some people get poor battery life some get amazing battery life.

    Using the Exynos version.
    KPMcClave and Tsepz_GP like this.

    I've been pretty happy with Nougat on my S7 Edge. Up to the point that I took this screenshot, I had five lines open on T-Mobile so I had five phones working with active sim cards including my Nougat S7 Edge. I got two hrs screen time during this week. This phones glass is broken on the bottom so as of today, I am putting the phone away in a drawer just to keep as a backup and I no longer have five lines on T-Mobile anyways as I'm now prepaid.

    I plugged in the phone to charge just before I took this screenshot.

    This isn't encouraging........nougat problems....-screenshot_20170206-083532.png

    My battery life has been significantly better since the nougat upgrade coupled with a full reset.

    This is what I got from my typical usage. Cell reception is poor so that doesn't help and I'm forcing it to use the 4G chip so I can maintain a fast connection, though I did this with MM and managed to get 3.5hrs by 50%
