    Since i removed all the oculus stuff, shut my phone off and cleared cache, my battery has returned to normal dropping only 9 percent battery since 5am. Android system shows 19 percent battery usage.

    had same thing happen to me today too. Started today, was good before that and no changes were made to the phone.
    Phone is very laggy and slow and a huge drain on the battery by android services. Rebooted 5 times but no help.
    Very same happens for me since before-yesterday evening with my Samsung Galaxy S7 (bought ~5 months ago). It draining the full battery in only ~4 hours 30'. Rebooting several times didn't "fix" the problem. I think I saw also an update of Oculus that evening... But it's Android System which is consuming > 30%.

    The UI became laggy too and the video (youtube) are continuously stopping (every 5 to 10 sec) although the buffer is still full. My screen is not always on but the phone is really hot. The problem does not depend on my location. I did switch off Localisation, Bluetooth, WiFi, ...

    I am using GSAM to "monitor" the battery usage since a long time and I have that battery chart for the past 7 days... But I don't have any figures of the CPU usage before the beginning of this issue.That chart is available only as of Thursday 18:00, exactly when I see that the battery start to be drained full speed (on the short CPU graph available, the average is 40%)

    Many people are pointing at Oculus. EX.:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/GalaxyS7/co...ining_battery/
    http://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/...ry-drain-news/

    But no need to uninstall it. Run the app and it starts an update which should fix the pblm.

    I uninstalled all my oculus apps and my battery life returned to normal. Def an issue with the oculus app updating. Has anybody resolved the issue without removing the oculus software?

    What the heck? I'm at 20% after 12 hours with no Oculus. And today has been a light use day.

    There is actually an article on Android Authority regarding the Oculus VR app updates causing battery drains.

    I received an email from Oculus today that they have fixed the issue. Per the email, opening the Oculus app and letting it update will fix the issue.

    What is being reported as using the majority of battery when you look at battery status?

    Your system and screen use seem a little high. My system use is 21% and screen is 11%. But I'm not on my phone much when I'm at work.
    Try going into Google Play and make sure all of your apps are up-to-date.

    Try disabling the Google app and see if it makes a difference. I noticed that once I opened that Google app and allowed it to inform me of stuff relevant to my location and whatnot, my battery life took a big dive.

    then you have to live with this drain. I don't have the battery drain anymore after disabling it and now my battery is normal, when I don't touch the phone, it doesn't suck up battery like no tomorrow as it did before

    And it is a different device in a different location, with different towers, different apps installed and being used for differing volumes of time and has different settings. And 2.5 hours of SOT is still double the SOT your GSAM stats indicated. I mentioned that it's double in my first post.
    EGG sactly Aquila : ] and of all those variables you mention, I believe our common purpose here is to isolate which are having the greatest impact on battery

    Some apps are preventing the phone from going into doze mode...

    Try greenify app to see which apps are running, then uninstall or hibernate them.

    Turning off automatic updates also help.

    On Samsung phones Apps such as phone, messenger and more are all classed as system. Meaning if you are using your phone without any third party apps, and sending texts and ringing people, your gonna be using battery under the "system" name. This may vary from phone to phone, maybe you have a different default phone/ messaging app etc.

    This is my first adventure into Android since I went to iOS back with my 4S. I love my new S7. But one question I have is, I have had my phone for 3 days and my battery seems to be running down faster than I expected. When I look at the battery usage. The Android System is always first at 30% and Android OS second at 20%. Is that normal? It seems really high. I understanding it happening the first day as it is building files. But 3 days later?
    I found the perfect solution. Of course youll have to dish up 1.50 . After searching found mention of an app called package disabler. It pretty much lets you disable all the bloatware and unecessary parts of the operating system. I got rid of multiple things including virtual reality service and knox. Its like macfee but unecessary. It Uses up a lot of power. I went from having to charge twice a day to once every three days. Enjoy

    battery drain after the recent SW update (AT&T) may have caused the battery drain

    try :

    cache wipe

    or do a factory reset (but make sure you backup your stuff; data will be deleted)

    install greenify to hibernate apps

    hope that helps

    I've been having the same problems. Battery is draining too fast. OS and system are at 20% and 30%. Too high. I've cleaned everything and turned off everything useless and still nothing.
